The 'Shroom:Issue 107/Fun Stuff
Hello there, 'Shroom readers! I'm Andymii (talk), your new Fun Stuff Director. If case you didn't realize by our banners and background, I'm kicking off my job with the 'Shroom's Zelda/Pokémon special issue. So if that's your type, we hope you enjoy our specially themed activities this month! We've got plenty – Meta Knight (talk) has made a Zelda-themed maze, Pyro Guy (talk) has made extra Picross puzzles, and Yoshi876 has made a Zelda/Pokémon Quiz. Unrelatedly, if the notion of Donald Trump eating Yoshi eggs interests you, you might want to read on as well.
Section of the Month
Greetings, adventurers! It's been 30 years of The Legend of Zelda. That is a really long time, but this series has proven to be one of Nintendo's biggest. Man, even my mom beat the original Zelda. She also beat Zelda II. Good job Mom; way to outshine me there. But enough of that. When I went to Hyrule, I stole the Triforce just for you guys. I could have sold it for money so I could take a vacation, but I decided to draw on it instead. With permanent ink too. Now instead of having the power of wisdom, power, or courage, it has the power of markers, crayons, and colored pencils. Not bad if I do say so myself.
How to Play:
-Copy the image in an art program (such as Paint, Photoshop, paint.net, etc.)
-Click the line tool and adjust the size as needed
-Use the line tool to get from arrow to arrow
-Zoom in and out as needed
Hi all! It turns out that both Pokémon and Zelda turn 25 this year, and to celebrate this, I've prepared extra picrosses (I'm still not sure about the plural of picross, but picrosses seem to work out) on top of the promised Wario themed picross. I have also prepared a tip for all you picross lovers; don't just think about the squares and numbers, because they form a picture. Use your knowledge of the picture you've uncovered so far to detect things like symmetry, patterns and more to predict where you can fill in a square. This is needed in this month's HARD picross. Good luck, and get ready for this issue's theme:
any way to shorten that?
Wow! Three picrosses! And with that comes three colored answers!
So this is the part where I congratulate you regardless of how you did. Well done! Next month, we'll be tackling the Paper Mario series to see what puzzles I can come up with. And on that note, goodbye!
Welcome to Quiz, a place where I... quiz you, on Mario stuff... well, not this time. No, this time it's based on Pokémon and The Legend of Zelda.
It's a Pokémon-themed issue this time, and…well. You see, Pokémon and I have history.
You might know that I play games to beat them. I play games that you can finish completely (you might want to see this). As catching every single Pokémon (and their shiny counterparts!) is the stupidest idea ever, I've avoided Pokémon like the plague.
Oh, I've given it its chances. I decided to give Pokémon a go once with (don't laugh) Pokémon Shuffle. And what do they do? They make these stupid competitions where only the top 20,000 get to catch a Pokémon for a short time only. Needless to say, that game has been wiped completely from my 3DS. But it gets worse.
The Pokémon issues extend far beyond their own territory. So I get a free Smash Bros. Mewtwo from Club Nintendo. Sounds nice, right?
No. Now I can't buy all-inclusive DLC bundles, because I "own part of the DLC already." You've got to be kidding.
So I've decided to distance myself from Pokémon as much as possible, because it's trolled me enough already. That is, until MarioWiki called me to do this; looking back, I shouldn't be surprised (our Pokémon article is ironically longer than Bulbapedia's). That's why I've asked my Pokémon-expert brother to choose the Pokémon involved in today's issue. Additionally, Bulbapedia supplied most of the facts seen here, because c'mon, a person who's only played Pokémon Shuffle isn't going to be that knowledgeable. Thank you to both.
Well, uh, let's start, I guess…?
Level 1: Easy (even for newbs like me)
Now I'm done with this, I'm not talking about Pokémon again. Hopefully. I probably will have to somewhere along the line. Regardless, thank you for playing Guess Who, and please check back next month!
