Advantages I get to spend time with a short dark stranger
Disadvantages He ignores me
A little while ago my sons mate Ian lent us his GameCube and I fell in love............with a short dumpy Italian with a strange moustache!
But he belongs to another, some daft girlie looking Princess called Peach, that always seems to get in trouble by being constantly kidnapped! I don't know exactly what is going on between these two but I am jealous :oPI spent ages with Mario, much more than she does! Finding coins, squirting baddies with water, cleaning up the places we go to and even rescuing her but do I get a thank you off this strange little bloke? You bet I don't! Not so much as a word has passed his lips... mind you he could be mumbling something under that gigantic moustache but I never hear anything... apart from the occasional "OUCH!" when things go wrong. But still I have to spend time with him, in the never ending quest for him to stop chasing after the Princess and just notice me!
The boys went off to their Dads for Easter and what was I doing... was I out on the tiles? NO! I was sitting in playing as much as I could before Mario was taken away from me! Eating pizza to keep me in the Italian mood :oPThen the day I had been dreading came.... Ian took his GameCube back and I had to go without my daily dose. After trying to take my mind off Mario, by playing a different Mario game on my sons Nintendo 64, I found I just couldn't cope. So what could I do? I couldn't borrow Ian's again, as his Mum had dropped it down the stairs! (Don't ask!) And the one on the N64 just wasn't the same. So I went down to Woollies and got myself a GameCube complete with Super Mario Sunshine. I rushed home, set it up and switched it on.
There he was, back in my living room and I was happy again...... sad isn't it :oPNow you have discovered what a sad person I really am, I better tell you a bit about the actual game rather than just my Mario fixation!
The Game itself.......It is your basic run around, solve puzzles and collect things game!
There is a story. Princess Peach is off on her hols with Mario and her usual entourage of royal attendants. They fly into a beautiful sunlit tropical paradise called Isle Delfino, only to find that someone that looks like Mario has been leaving graffiti and gloop everywhere. This slightly spoils the holiday plans as Mario is thrown in jail!Mario promises to help clean up the mess with the help of Fludd, a strange water squirter robot, that can talk and looks a bit like a duck! This stays on Mario's back throughout the game, apart from when it is stolen by the wanna be baddie see-through Mario on certain levels, (who's identity will be revealed later in the game, so I am saying nothing about who the Baddie really is) :oP
The reason the locals are so cross about the gloop that is everywhere, is that the shine sprites that keep the isle so sunny have all gone away, as they don't like the pollution (a message there if ever I heard one). So not only must Mario clean up, he must also find all the shine sprites and make the place all sunny again.
