Poképark 2: Wonders Beyond

Just to let you know, my last post was just created five seconds ago. So... you'll have twice as much fun reading this!

Poképark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure is an already great game. And Poképark 2 is even better!

Here's a list of differences between the original and the sequel.
  • In Poképark 1, the game focuses around restoring a magical artifact called the "Sky Prism". In Poképark 2, the narrator said something about the local Pokemon going missing. So I'm assuming that you have to go find them.
  • Poképark 2 is muiltiplayer.
  • In Poképark 1 you can only play as Pikachu in adventure mode. In Poképark 2 you can play as: Pikachu, Tepig, Oshuwatt, and Snivy.
  • Poképark 2 allows the player to play in two parks: the Poképark and the mystical Wish Park. While in the original, your only allowed to dwell in the Poképark.
  • Poképark 2 has Pokemon from both original and Unova generations.
  • Poképark 2 allows you to switch characters in the middle of a mini game anytime you want.
  • Poképark 2 has (from what I seen) more danger. In a teaser trailer, Pikachu, Oshuwatt and Piplup were seen running for their lives and a pair a floating arms was chasing them and nearly squashed Oshuwatt (but Oshuwatt somehow managed to escape unharmed).

Here's a list of known actions Pikachu and his friends can do.
  • Thunderbolt - A shocking attack. Electrocute enemies with hundreds of  bolts of lightning! Charge up machines! <Pikachu only>
  • Quick Attack -  An attack involving speed and running. Run at amazingly fast speed! <Pikachu only>
  • Carry - Lift small Pokemon and small items and carry them over any desired distance. <Pikachu only>
  •  Flame Charge - Ram into cracked objects to break them! <Tepig only>
  • Water Gun - A watery attack. Water Gun packs enough force to push even the mighty Ursaring (a Pokemon as heavy as a sumo but more in shape)! <Oshuwatt only>
  • Swim - Back stroke in deep bodies of water! <Oshuwatt only>
  • Leaf Tornado - Increase the height of your jumps with a Leaf Tornado! <Snivy only>
  • Jump - Leap to reach an elevated platform! <shared>
  • Run - Fitness counts! run at fast speed (Quick attack is faster though)!
  • Interact -Talk to other Pokemon. Pull switches. <shared>

Mario & Luigi stuff (part 2 for my old post)

As you might know, one of my old blog posts contain info on Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, Luigi's Mansion, Super Mario Galaxy (both 2 and original), and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. So, in memory of that post, This post is actually an upgrade to the old post.

        As you know, In Bowser's Inside Story, (most of the paragraph is copied from my own old post) it's another fine day in Mushroom Kingdom but, the inhabitants are being infected by a decease known as the Blurbs (which only infects Toads and Koopas, also highly contagious). the main source of it is Bowser, (a.k.a. His Beefiness a.k.a. Senior Turtle Bits a.k.a The King of Awesome a.k.a. King of Koopas). You must be wondering "How did Bowser get the Blurbs?" well, this is how.   This strange guy called Fawful (whose notable catch phrase is "I have chorkles." and "Beef? I have no beef. Fawful is beef-less.") gives him a lucky-shroom which causes him to eat everything in sight, literally. (first sign of the Blurbs) Then he goes to the Princess Peach's Palace. then he swallows Mario & Luigi, this little star guy and Princess Peach herself and now Mario & Luigi have this amazing adventure inside Bowser. they also have to kick germ butt. But, it is later revealed that the lucky-shroom Bowser ate was actually a vac-shroom (gives whoever eats it vacuum breath but at the same time gives them a bad case of the Blurbs if they are a Koopa or a Toad). Also, Fawful took over Bowser's castle while he was at Peach's palace (thus turning it into a robot version of the castle). But after awhile, Bowser Challenged his own castle to a fight and destroyed the castle's robot add-ons in a most spectacular fashion (this of course, happened when Bowser no longer have the Blurbs.)!

Here's a list of actions that can be done in the game (combat system).
  • Jump - Squash foes with a Jump!!! Make enemies extra flat with a Double Jump! Can only be performed by Mario or Luigi.
  • Hammer - It's hammer time with the Mario Bros.! Flatten enemies with a swing from the Hammer! Can only be used only by Mario or Luigi.
  • Green Shell - It's a game of soccer for the Mario Bros.! Use well timed kicks to send the Green Shell flying at your enemies! Can be used only be Mario and Luigi (at the same time)
  • Punch - knock everyone in your way into next week with a wound punch from the King of Koopas! Can be used only by Bowser.
  • Flame Breath -  time to turn up the heat! Blow into the mic of your DS to make Bowser release streams of fire to burn your foes! Can be used only by Bowser.
  • Goomba Storm - summon an army of Goombas and make them charge and run over enemies! A tap from the stylus will set them ablaze for even more mayhem! Can be used only by Bowser.
  • Co-op battle - Use Bowser's vacuum breath to swallow enemies whole! Then let the Mario Bros. finish them off! Can be used all all three characters.
Here's another list (puzzle solving actions).
  • Punch - Get on a raft and punch a wall to get the raft going! Punch a rock formation while sailing on the raft to change direction! Punch a cracked spot on a wall to open up a doorway! Can be used only by Bowser

  • Jump - Jump to reach new heights! Can be used only by Mario and Luigi.
  • Mini Mario - Use Luigi's hammer to shrink Mario to reach hard-to-get to places! Just a whack from Luigi and Mario's big again! Can be used only by Mario and Luigi.
  • Spin Jump - a little teamwork and Mario and Luigi become a 2-in-1 tornado! Run into a real tornado to cover more distance! Can be used only by the Mario Bros.
  • Co-op - Use Bowser to do things that require muscle power! And if' that's not enough, use the Mario Bros. to give Bowser's muscles a huge boost! Can be used by all three characters.

Now here's info on Luigi's Mansion.

"Luigi, having won a mansion in a contest he didn't even enter, enters the Boo Woods and locates it. He enters the mansion and is soon attacked by ghosts, but Professor E. Gadd appears and fights off the ghosts with a vacuum. He tells Luigi that the mansion appeared out of thin air and is an illusion, and that Mario was captured by the ghosts living within the mansion. He trains Luigi to use his vacuum invention, the Poltergust 3000, to vacuum up ghosts, and that he had several ghosts captured and turned into portraits, but they were released by King Boo.
Luigi enters the mansion, sucking up ghosts and finding keys, while meeting Toad along the way, until he encounters a portrait ghost, Neville. He defeats him, sucking him into the Poltergust. He does the same to Lydia, Neville's wife, and fights their baby, Chauncey, who sucks Luigi into his crib and fights him as a giant ghost, but is defeated and sucked into the Poltergust, which begins to get full, so Luigi returns to E. Gadd's lab and empties the Poltergust, turning Neville, Lydia, and Chauncey back into portraits. What becomes of the common ghosts is unknown.
Luigi enters another area through a previously blocked door and fights more ghosts. After defeating the Floating Whirlindas, he enters the Storage Room and hits a switch, which opens a trapdoor where 50 Boos and their leader, King Boo, are hiding. All of them escape, flying into different rooms of the mansion. Luigi returns to E. Gadd's lab and E. Gadd tells him that the Boos were the ones who released the portrait ghosts, and Luigi must capture the Boos to weaken their power, as they are stronger in greater numbers. So Luigi goes through the many rooms of the mansion, vacuuming up any Boos he sees. He also meets Madame Clairvoya, a fortune teller ghost, who tells him to bring her any of Mario's items he finds lying around in the mansion so she can get details on his whereabouts. The items are: Mario's hat, Mario's glove, Mario's shoe, Mario's letter and Mario's star. After sucking up Shivers the butler, Melody Pianissima, Mr. Luggs, and Spooky the dog, Luigi enters the Cemetery and fights the shadowy ghost, Bogmire. He defeats him and sucks him into the Poltergust, which he then empties at E. Gadd's lab to turn all the Portrait Ghosts into portraits.
Luigi enters a third area into the courtyard. Down the well, he sees into King Boo's altar, and discovers that King Boo has Mario imprisoned in a portrait. He goes through new rooms of the mansion, finding Mario's items and vacuuming up ghosts, including portrait ghosts Biff Atlas, Miss Petunia, Nana, Slim Bankshot, and twins Henry and Orville. After Luigi brings Madame Clairvoya enough of Mario's items, she tells him that she sees Bowser in a vision, which is shocking because Mario defeated Bowser, and she suspects that King Boo revived him. With her job done, she tells Luigi to suck her into the Poltergust so she can return peacefully to her portrait. After he does so, and defeats enough Boos, he enters the balcony and fights Boolossus, a big Boo made up of 15 Boos. He throws him into a spiky statue to split him into the 15 Boos and sucks them all into the Poltergust. He then empties the Poltergust at E. Gadd's lab to turn all the portrait ghosts, including Boolossus, into portraits.
When Luigi enters Area 4 in the attic, the mansion is suddenly struck by lightning and it goes dark. Luigi goes to the breaker room to turn the power back on, but finds it locked. Luigi looks for the key and soon encounters a ghost named Uncle Grimmly and defeats him to get the key. After he turns the power back on, he catches more Boos and portrait ghosts, including the Clockwork Soldiers, Sue Pea, Jarvis, and Sir Weston, before entering the room of Vincent Van Gore, one of the most prominent portrait ghosts who is painting regular ghosts. He sends several waves of ghosts after Luigi, but Luigi defeats them all, causing Van Gore to go into a state of depression, and Luigi sucks him into the Poltergust without much resistance. He then goes to the Secret Altar down a creepy hallway in the basement and encounters King Boo, who reveals that he was the one who told Luigi that he won the mansion in a contest, and set it up as revenge for all the trouble they caused him (though they may not have met him before, they have been fighting against Boos for years, plus King Boo works for Bowser). King Boo goes into Mario's portrait (which turns into a Bowser portrait) and sucks Luigi into it. In an arena resembling the roof of the mansion (and with a slight resemblance to the arena at the end of Super Mario 64), Luigi fights Bowser (as Madame Clairvoya had seen), but when he hits him in the head with a bomb, it is revealed to be King Boo piloting a False Bowser mecha. Luigi defeats King Boo and sucks him into the Poltergust.
Luigi returns to the lab and turns all the portrait ghosts, including King Boo, into portraits again. E. Gadd reverses the Portrificationizer to release Mario from his portrait. After Mario goes through getting electrocuted, squished, being swirled around in a shell structure full of water etc... He enters through some tubes and ends saying: "Oof!". Then Luigi walks up to the part where he puts his Poltergust 3000 in and says: "Mario?". Then Mario flies out of the tubes falling on his head. Luigi ends up falling but sitting. When Mario gets into a sitting position, Luigi gets a well deserved laugh, after seeing a frame around his brother's neck. Since King Boo has been defeated, his illusion of a mansion fades away, though the money and jewels Luigi collected in the mansion was real, and with it he gets a new mansion or house. But if Luigi gets an H rank, he can only get a tent."

Luigi uses a high-tech super advanced vacuum as a weapon. That's right; a vacuum. And he uses a Game boy Color (called a Game Boy Horror in the game) to talk to Gadd in the mansion (it also has a built-in Ghost Detector, a built-in dictionary, and info about targeted ghosts).

Here's some info about a new Mario game (Mario Party 9).
Info about this game is scarce, but here's everything that is known. This game is like a virtual board game, with Mario and his friends (plus a Shy Guy and a Koopa Troopa) being the "pieces" that represent the player(s). Also in this game, all four players go to the same space and at the same time. Why? Because all of them ride in a vehicle, there's only one vehicle to be exact. So everybody's gotta share the same ride. Plus, the ride is different with each board (in Toad Road, it's a car whose front end resembles a mushroom, and in Haunted Courtyard, it's a magic carpet that floats in the air and has a cute little steering wheel.).

Now here's some stuff about Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
Turns out that Master and Crazy Hands are not the final bosses in the game. Instead, it's Tabu, a very powerful being who is willing to sacrifice even the closest of allies to accomplish greater objectives (as proven when he sacrificed almost his entire army to create a black hole big enough for his Gunship to fly through.). Master and Crazy Hands were actually Tabu's pawns, puppets, and servants. Tabu controls them by using the Chains of Light.

Master and Crazy Hands are still the creative (Master Hand) and destructive (Crazy Hand) spirits of this world though. And since they're both giant living hands their boss attacks are mainly actions performed by hands (punches, slaps, and turning into finger-men).

Another boss is Galleom. Galleom is a cyborg with a rhino's head. Here's a picture of Galleom's artwork.
Galleom's features include: super strength, high jumps, shoulder-mounted missile launchers a head that houses a time bomb that will explode within 15 seconds and the explosion will destroy anything within a 50 mile radios.

Now let's get back to the main series.
Remember Bowser? Well, I know two of his secrets. One: I've seen him in his underwear, he wears boxer shorts covered in rubber duckies. And two: he has a crush on Princess Peach. In fact, Bowser would take the chance to do anything romantic with Peach (marry Peach, go on the Tunnel of Love with Peach, make Peach his Queen of Koopas, go on a date with...... oh what a surprise.... Peach.). In case your wondering "How do you know about Bowser's crush?", there's two ways to find out: One: why else would he always kidnap Peach? And two: In Super Paper Mario, Count Bleck forced Bowser and Peach to marry. But Bowser went on with the wedding willingly and "takes Peach as his wife" (Peach was hypnotized into saying "I do" by Count Bleck.).
