    I thought Zen Pinball would come this week, but I guess it will be the next one.

    Oooh, Wario Land 2! That one game where Wario was immortal, and it was all about putting his body through deranged tortures in order to twist him into a shape that suited the situation at hand.

    Man, no wonder Wario only cares about money. If I were in his shoes and had suffered what he had, I’d lose faith in humanity too.
