It all arose when I wrote a completely BS summary to Mario Galaxy on Wikipedia in response to my brother who thought Rosalina was evil.
I quickly reverted it but it got me thinking about the cliffhanger ending. So, next day in the car ride to Baton Rouge for Christmas, I planned out "The Space Between Spaces: A Super Mario Adventure", a Mario game heavily based on story. It involves Mario and Bowser each getting along. It explores their back history and some "tragic past" incident they need to overcome.
The story goes along that Mario and Luigi's parents were killed in a tragic accident, and Mario and Luigi join a gang called the Plumbers. The Plumbers all wore different colored hats. Mario was a red "M", Luigi was green "L", Wario was a yellow "W", and Waluigi had a purple reverse L. There was also Bob, a guy with a blue "B", and the mysterious black "X" who wore a hoodie and an obscured face. The Plumbers all wore gloves to perpetrate crimes with. This is also where Mario got hooked on "magic mushrooms".
Mario and Luigi are arrested, and escape with the help with a mysterious wizard. Unfortunately, Mario and Luigi cannot return to this world, where they are wanted criminals.
The game also involved Bowser's wife, and why she left him. I only got a certain length before I realized that no matter what, I could not sufficiently make a compelling story and in the end would just become bad fanfiction.
This thread is a perfect example of why this one was so stupid.
Must of missed that one.
Proposed game aside, the Mario Gang theory is not the same "true" theory. See, there are two types of theories.
Type One: This type is obsessively researched, cites dozens of sources, and is completely unlike the other theories on the Internet, yet makes perfect sense, if you read that deeply. The author swears by this one, and expects others to join their cause.
Type Two: This type is the Mario Gang theory. It's barely researched and features flaunted ideas. The author doesn't expect anyone to take it as truth and was merely an idea tossed in the air. Likewise, the author does not take it seriously himself.

I don't know about a gang called the Plumbers. Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi don't seem very gangster to me. I could see Koopas forming a gang, especially the Hammer Bros. Just so long as they handled it with the same attitude they did the mob in Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. I wouldn't want to see Grand Theft Auto: Mushroom Kingdom.
Also, I think they're trying to say that your idea is fanfic, not based on fanfic.
Nester the Lark: I would like to be more active around here, but I don't always have the opportunity.

nocturnal YL: I also would like to be more active, but I don't really have anything interesting to say. When I'm not playing games, I'm just being listless.

nocturnal YL: Just now, I thought of making a topic on why am I unusually cold towards Nintendo's own games this generation, but then I realised that the answer is actually very simple: they're remakes, ports or otherwise don't bring anything particularly novel.

Nester the Lark: I can think of some things to post about. They might not be interesting to anyone but myself, but I think of the forum as more like a community blog at this point.

Nester the Lark: Is there anything more "anime" than two characters involved in an incredibly fast, intense, elaborate battle with each other while simultaneously having a calm conversation, voices not even raised, and not even short of breath?

nocturnal YL: This is completely random, but I saw a woman with Animal Crossing's Isabelle's hairstyle this morning. She was also dressed in pastel colours, which reminded me even more of Isabelle.

nocturnal YL: The new State of Play is quite interesting. Stray is unexpected, and SF6 looks better than its disastrous initial logo reveal would suggest.

Nester the Lark: Street Fighter 6 looked like Street Fighter being combined with Final Fight because of the free-roaming segments. I wouldn't mind seeing more stuff like that in fighting games, but then, I've given up on the genre anyway.

Boo Destroyer: ^ We don't get enough of that anymore, if you ask me.

Nester the Lark: Where are my bonus rounds where you total a car with your bare hands?

Nester the Lark: With Xenoblade Chronicles 3 coming out soon, I was thinking of writing about my favorite cutscenes from XC2.
Jun 6, 2022 10:23:26 GMT -5
Boo Destroyer: I wonder if Rex, Pyra, and Mythra will appear in Xenoblade 3 as bonus DLC?

Nester the Lark: ^ I can see the "Heroes"/seventh party members being a little like XC2's Blades in terms of collectability (only without the gacha system), so I think the potential is there for having a lot of extra party members.

nocturnal YL: Started the Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes demo, currently at the first episode. I picked the Black Eagles. The beginning felt kind of slow.

Nester the Lark: OK, I'll have my impressions of the XC3 Direct shortly...
Jun 22, 2022 9:26:13 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I still want to write some things about XC2 before XC3 comes out, but haven't quite been able to yet.

nocturnal YL: I played through the demo of a game that I wouldn't have considered — Aiyoku no Eustia, an old adult game (console version, so no adult contents). One thing that surprised me is that I played it for 6 hours and it's still going. More on that later.

nocturnal YL: What's with that awful upscaling in that Mega Man Battle Network collection?
Jun 28, 2022 8:58:25 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Started Atelier Ryza 2. I'm about 15% done? First-day impression: Ryza 2 is much improved from Ryza 1, most notably story and battle system. The pacing is better, the goals are clear, and story logs are written from Ryza's perspective.

nocturnal YL: As far as it being a base for other games go, BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light obviously took cues from it, with both involving revealing memories. Atelier Sophie 2 mostly had changes it can call its own, sharing just the rendering and exploration mechanics.
