It was a crisp, sunny day in the Mushroom Kingdom. Goomba kids could be seen running out in the streets in the outskirts of Toad Town, and the Toads themselves were preparing to open up their shops and sell their wares. One Toad was humming a sweet song about his "Toadantine" as he was hanging up today's special badges. Suddenly, a bright red ball covered with spikes bounced near his feet. He leaped in surprise, since it seemingly came from nowhere. It rolled around a bit before sticking into the nearby grass. Grumbling, the Toad resumed his song about his lovely Toad lass, unaware that the red ball was cracking open, and that more red balls were being tossed around the town as stealthfully as possible. It was the beginning of a very weird day for Toad Town...
OK, next up is Smashchu! You have until next Saturday to get your entry in. Have fun!
OH crap, I was the next entry. Been spacing out. Sorry for the lateness.
Natural, when everything takes a turn for the worse, Mario is called in to save the day................................but Mario was on vaction. Heroes need a break sometimes too. Of course, they had to go for the next best thing.
Luigi was awoken from his dream of being confirmed for Brawl when the phone rang. Luigi rolled onto the floor and then picked himself up and picked up the phone. "Luigi Luigi" the Toad said on the other line. "Help, Toad Town is under attack by giant red balls. Since we are toads, we can do anything but run around screaming. HELP UP". "OK" said Luigi "I'll get Mario". "No" replied the toad on the other line "We need YOU". Luigi stared blankly into space. "Luigi..........Luigi are you there". All he could say is "Ahhhh crap".

Was going to make a "change" American Kirby, but I'm not that skilled at Fireworks.
Luigi quickly thought to himself..."What would Mario do?" he wondered. Luigi sighed and realized he had to save the town. He started to get up but was quickly knocked down by a huge explosion! This explosion was caused by a large four-legged monster that seemed out of place. This monster was known as Dialga.
"Mama Mia!" Luigi cried, as Dialga trotted around the place, destroying houses and causing quite an uproar. Everyone was now more worried about this beast, than the spikey balls, which upon closer inspection, Luigi noticed they were Koopa Shells and were being tossed down by Lakitu's.
"What's wrong with everyone!" one Lakitu exclaimed. "They should be worried about the wrath of Bowser, and not some...pocket monster!

Hiding behind a sturdy pile of rubble, Luigi and a small group of Toads listened while the monster raged. Luigi racked his brains, trying desperately to think of a solution. The Toads weren't much help, finding solace in moaning. "We're doomed!" shouted one. "The situation is hopeless!" said another. "Luigi's useless, and no-one else can save us!" moaned a third. For the green hatted plumber, this was the last straw!
"USELESS, AM I?" he shouted with venom. An eerie green light started to emanate from him, and his eyes started to blaze with an inner fire. "We'll see about THAT!" he said, standing up and setting off towards the monster, seemingly growing with each step. The Toads watched him go, each one of them dumbstruck by his sudden change...
Meanwhile, things weren't going well in Bowser's castle either! "WHAT?!" screamed the lizard king at his unfortunate messenger. "T-t-they just aren't b-bothered, your mightiness" repeated the stuttering underling. "They're just t-too busy with this n-new monster to c-care about your l-l-latest campain" "Am I no longer feared?" pondered Bowser. "I blame your recent public appearences" answered his personal PR koopa. "I keep telling you; brand is everything! You need a serious image change. Move away from the whole 'buffoon' angle". "Yeah? YEAH!" agreed Bowser. "I need to be more ruthless! More foreboding! More EVIL! KAMEK!! Get my transport ready! It's time to show 'em who's boss!"
nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.
