I think it's probably nerve gas or some kind of bio-weapon, but I don't know for sure yet.
The mushroom guy hears humming coming from the bathroom, and seeing that the door's open, rushes inside...
Man, look at his dancing. His brother's panicking, his girlfriend's in tears and his greatest enemy is standing right there... and Mario's just dancing. He don't give a fuck any more.
It seems that the game is an rpg with a Final Fantasy style turn-based battle system, with the twist that I can inflict extra damage with a well timed button press.
Bowser can't kidnap her in this state, she'd end up blowing up his castle, so he teams up with the Marios to get her voice back.
Zelda game mate, put it down.
Weirdly it seems that Luigi only came by to wish me luck, he's not coming with me. Well, okay then I'm sure Mario will do fine on his own, he usually does.
I tried to swap their shirts, but nope. Green Mario is forbidden.
I guess that means I'm stuck with only two party members for the entire game.
Man, these numbers can't be right. I can't believe Mario's "Stache" stat could be so low. Also what the hell is a "Stache" stat and what does it do? I'm going to guess it's luck, seeing as it's at the bottom where luck often sits.
Anyway I'm putting my points into 'pow'. You can never have too much 'pow' I reckon.
ONE LONG BOSS FIGHT LATER.
Not sure why he didn't just do that from the start really. I suppose villains always have to save their best attack for last.
Apparently we're still in the Mushroom Kingdom, so I need to hike over to the Beanbean Kingdom and get back on the trail of the Princess's voice.
I really don't like this minigame.
I looked for another way round, to see if I could jump the fence or something, but it seems like this is it. I just have to keep jumping this damn rope until they eventually let me past.
Anyway, it seems I'm not going this way until I get some coins.
Now I can get to all those boxes I walked past on the way here. And I'll need to if I want to get enough coins to get out of this place. This area's way too purple for my liking, and the music's a bit lame, so I'll be glad to be finished with it.
Fortunately they bounce, so most of the time if I just hold still they bounce right over me. I wish I had a fire flower right now though. So I could fire a fireball right at this asshole's smug grin.
ANOTHER LONG BOSS BATTLE LATER.
This mushroom guy isn't even anything to do with anything. He just got sick of listening to Bowser whine, came out of the ground, and lit his fuse. Well, now Bowser's gone flying off somewhere I think this is as good a place as any to stop playing.
