Summertime Tunes!

Video games use music to set a specific mood and tone. And I’m about to use this list of songs to get everyone in the summertime mood!

Currently, where I live, it’s smack in the middle of a sizzling summer and I’m melting in the heat. These songs are helping me get in the tropical mood and ignore the ridiculous weather as much as possible.

So in honor of today, June 21, the first official day of summer, here’s a list of music from Nintendo games to help get you embrace the summer!

What’s your favorite song from a video game that reminds you of summer? Did I forget any major ones in my list? Let me know in the comments below!

Paper Mario’s got those jokes

The Paper Mario series is known for its almost irreverent take on the Mario universe, cracking jokes at the expense of almost every iconic character in the series. From characters in The Thousand Year Door making fun of Mario’s mustache to Bowser being the King of Guys who Talk to Posters.

There are some genuinely funny jokes and also amazing animation (see Goombaria and Goompapa above) in these games.

So for that reason, I’m going through each chapter in the first two games and collecting my favorite screen grabs.

All pictures are taken from Krow’s Graveyard‘s excellent walkthrough.

The first post with the best screen grabs from the Paper Mario Prologue will be up this Tuesday, 2/14! And, trust, there are quite a few.
