\o/ It is a great game. Dialogue remains a huge plus throughout the whole game. Give me updates as you go! I love discussing games like these, and there's a lot of memorable parts to SPM. Lots of them.
Sticker Star sadly drops the story and characters (still has good dialogue and charm to it though!) thanks to executive meddling, but it's still fun for what it's worth. I'm yet to play the first PM game (I figure I might get it on a sale via Wii U eshop). The second one (TTYD - The Thousand Year Door) is absolutely amazing and is a must to play. Fantastic dialogue in spades, solid mechanics, partner characters... SPM lacks those too in a sense (with the pixel characters), but it has a large and solid cast anyway plus four playable characters, so hey. Compared to each other SPM has maybe worse gameplay (down to preference with the style partially), but a better story imo.
As for the game show bit, idk about the 1st game but there's been one in every other PM game!
Meanwhile before club nintendo shut down here at the end of September I used stars/coins/whatever it used on the first M&L game for eshop download (among other things), so I'll be checking that out in full... sometime.

The next night after my last VM to you, I decided to play some SPM.
I LOVE IT SO MUCH!
I've never played a Paper Mario game before (I'm hoping to change that as soon as possible, though!) I've played every M&L game though, and while there are some features of those games that I wish were in SPM, I'm having so much fun with this game. I do like that it's just RPG enough to satisfy what I'm looking for while also having the platforming which I enjoy so much.
Plus the dialogue... I adore the dialogue, with the fourth-wall-breaking and the humor. Like, I just finished playing through Chapter 2, and the sudden appearance of a game show set made me laugh.

Oh. Well, you should start soon. =p I don't recall if you've played any other PM game, but SPM is pretty good. I prefer the turn-based system of the other games, but SPM has a heck of a story to it.

Cheers! I got a couple emails about your comments as well (so in the end you were no longer anonymous =p). I'll check them when not at work, and then actually go and post it sometime this month. :V And worry about editing chapter 2. I hope you liked it.

Just dropping a note to say that this anonymous cheetah just finished reading through your chapter on Google Docs. I left a few comments just on the grammar issues and typos that I noticed. I'll save my comments about the story itself when you post it!

Sorry for the delay, I never got the notification. Stupid PC hacking. =(
Super Paper Mario! Have you started playing, and if so where are you in it? Good to hear that you're doing well.
I am alright as well. Getting progress with uni stuff and stuff outside of that is good too. =)

I went to respond to your VM, but then just the thought of you reminded me that I needed to make sure I had the right walkthrough for Super Paper Mario. Then PC was hacked!
My break's been busy. I've been working through a lot of things just to lessen the amount of stuff going on in my life. But everything's good on my end!
How's everything for you?

How goes the great break?

So you're the 'Anonymous Cheetah' as google assigned looking at it rn? XD (I've been an anon. koala before).
I have never watched Glee. What sort of fics does that fandom get?
September 10th, 2015 4:51 PMAstinus
I have it open in a tab on my browser, along with the other dozen fanfics I want to read! (They're all from the Glee fandom, jsyk.)

So I finally posted my chapter in that open beta thread I told you about. I am so prompt. :V

I now have net at home! And then in a week I go to Uluru for two weeks. :V But I ought to have more time then anyway to enjoy internet between work and outreach.
August 3rd, 2015 6:33 PMbobandbill
Uni is a smaller part of it actually - the bigger part is moving. Like yesterday in particular, when we actually made the move!. And we don't have net in our new place yet. :V And before that was a lot of packing and etc... so I haven't had as much spare time since my interstate trip a few weeks back, and hence haven't been around as much outside of a certain section. =( Hopefully that'll change soon! (Thanks for your post btw).

Marcin! I feel as though I don't see your ANGRY face around the forums much these days! Uni keeping you busy?
