Hello, 'Shroom readers! 2016 was quite the trip, wasn't it? Ups and downs... well, a lot of downs. But let's not get into that right now, and instead talk about moving forward. For 2017, I've left the 'Shroom in the very capable hands of Meta Knight, who I'm sure will be a great Director and keep this place in top shape. And if he doesn't, that's why I'm still going to be sub-director. That's pretty much all I have to say, so go ahead and read our first issue of the new year!
Hello there everyone! This Issue kicks off 2017, and I'm excited for what it has to bring. This issue is more of a cooldown, after the traditional Holiday Special that takes place. That's not to say there isn't anything to see! There's plenty of great sections by writers. Go check them out and also be sure to vote! Especially in Pipe Plaza, and Strategy Wing because they usually don't get as much votes as the other sub-teams. Also, be to check out my Directorial Address. That's pretty much all I can think of for now so without further adieu, please enjoy the issue.
The amount of effort put into this section's writing and formatting is remarkable and shows just how dedicated LB is. He is finding his creative voice more and more with each issue, and he made reading about Super Paper Mario quite enjoyable. We are really looking forward to his future sections.
It was quite refreshing to read this review; it's been fairly common to just bash Paper Jam by saying it lacks compared to its predecessors, but TPG provides a great in-depth analysis of why he feels this game falls short. Could probably pass in an actual magazine.
The user cameos were hilarious and the writing was clever and creative; we particularly enjoyed TPG using the 'Shroom HQ as some sort of universe for everything to take place in. This was accompanied by great art as always.
