Charles Martinet on Super Mario Sunshine at SDCC 2012

July 22, 2012

I got the chance to talk with Charles Martinet (the voice of Mario, Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, and a ton of other Mario characters) for a bit during the signing at the Nintendo Gaming Lounge during SDCC. He was incredibly kind and awesome. When he picked up the poster to sign he said “Cooper, you numba one!” in the voice of Mario and I felt a little woozy. It was a bit of an out-of-body experience for me.

A moment later, he asked me what my favorite Mario game was. I told him that it was Super Mario Sunshine, and we had a brief conversation about it (this is only a clip of it). He told me that “it’s about time for F.L.U.D.D. to come back”.

Despite nearly dying from just talking to Mario himself about my favorite game of all time, I loved finding out that he loves Mario Sunshine and wants F.L.U.D.D. to return. Luigi’s Mansion is getting a sequel… I can dream for a Super Mario Sunshine sequel can’t I?

Greetings from Comic-Con 2012!

July 15, 2012

Jam packed days at Comic Con and Legoland. In GEEK heaven! I probably have a couple dozen posts I want to do, but I’m in the midst of too much awesomeness to stop and write about it!

Stay tuned though! I will start posting tons right after Con (assuming I’m not completely passed out on the couch from over geeking out). I’ll be doing posts on new Lego sets and minifigs, how inept Sony is with handling Human Beings, previews for new Nintendo games/products, and a WORLD EXCLUSIVE about something I got straight from the mouth of Mario.
