The 'Shroom:Issue 128/Pipe Plaza
Hello readers, and welcome to Pipe Plaza. If you've come here for looking for statistics, old sections, and news on upcoming games then you've come to the right place.
Now, those of you who read Pipe Plaza last month may remember that I promised a big announcement, and now it's time to deliver. Next month, I will be stepping down as Director of Pipe Plaza. Unfortunately, I have to focus a lot on my university and professional work, and I am no longer able to deliver the passion that this sub-team so rightly deserves.
However, for fans of my sections, don't worry. This isn't a full retirement, just me shedding my workload. I will still be contributing sections every month for the foreseeable future. Now go and enjoy my penultimate edition of Pipe Plaza.
Section of the Month

Tip of the Month
In general, you should use italics when: -naming a game (i.e. Super Mario Odyssey) -writing a quote from a game
In general, bold type is usually only used when listing alternate names for a character at the beginning of their article. Special type like these usually aren't used in regular text when writing articles.
Greetings everyone! Alex95 here to tell you all about an upcoming game and my thoughts about it. This month I'm covering the upcoming game (wait I said that already) for the Nintendo Switch, Kirby: Star Allies!
If you've played Kirby's Return to Dream Land for the Wii before, you'll know what to expect. Kirby: Star Allies is a Kirby platformer in the same vein, four-player co-op play in a 3D stylized world (but this time in HD). However, Kirby: Star Allies also seems to pull from other Kirby games as well. As far as I can tell, multiplayer isn't available right off the bat, it becomes available if Kirby attacks an enemy with love during a level. Yes, you read that right, Kirby literally attacks his enemies with love. By throwing a heart (somehow) at an enemy, they become obligated to join Kirby on his currently unknown quest. Players 2 through 4 can then join in and take control of the captured enemies, or said enemies will follow you around and attack as CPU characters if you don't have any friends with you at the moment, all like Kirby Super Star. There are also certain areas where use of multiple characters are required to progress.
Another game Kirby: Star Allies pulls from is Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, namely with the returning "fused" abilities. By combining two copy abilities together, they become one super ability (that's what I'm calling it). For example, if you fuse a Sword and Fire abilities together, it becomes a flaming sword! Finding the correct combination may also be essential to completing certain levels. You can also use this method to power-up your partners as well.
Now then, let's assume you're reading a news article on an online site that covers the Mario franchise and you only know Kirby through Super Smash Bros. or not at all. I bet you'd be asking yourself "What is Kirby?" and all that information above is nothing but garble. Kirby is the titular character in the Kirby series of games that revolves around him trying to save his land, usually from a gluttonous King Dedede or some kind of dark power (sometimes both). The mechanics of his games vary, but the main games usually have Kirby inhale his enemies to gain their powers so he can use them against them. Finding the right set of powers is key to finding all the secrets and progressing through the stages. The games are also fairly easy to learn, with most really only needing the control pad or stick and the A and B buttons, and I'm assuming this game will be no different. Easy and fun for everyone!
Kirby's the kind of versatile character that you can do pretty much anything with. He's been turned into a pinball and made out of yarn, and no matter what happens, his games are always fun to play. Here's hoping this game is no different in that regard, but just different enough that the formula continues to be fun.

This month we bring you a section from G.narron (talk). A History of Video Games is one of the most popular 'Shroom sections we've had, the gist of the section is that the writer, well... explains the history of video games. And I mean from the entire industry, not just Mario video games. Previous sections have even included everyone's favourite game Pong. G.narron joined the wiki on 12 October 2009, and joined The 'Shroom in Issue XXXII, which was released a month later. Unfortunately, this would be his only edition, but on the bright side he managed to contribute two articles: a Monthly Report, and the one you're about to read below.
