The 'Shroom:Issue 161/Pipe Plaza
Happy August everyone! If you're someone who's going back to school in the coming weeks (or if you've already gone back), please stay safe! I start college in about two weeks so things are crazy for me right now. In unrelated news, one of my favorite music groups is releasing new music on Monday and I cannot WAIT.
I hope everyone enjoyed awards yesterday! I certainly did, it's always one of my favorite times of the year. I'm already excited for next year~ :3c

It’s GPM1000 here once again for another month of Mario Calendar! I’m sure you’ve caught on to what this is all about, but if you’re new here, here’s the deal: there are a lot of games that Mario is featured in, right? Wouldn’t it be interesting to see the history of those Mario games? Well here is where that happens! Here I list all of the Mario games that have come out in any one month, this month being August! Well, I’m sure you know what’s up now, and want me to stop rambling, so let’s-a-go!

Overall, I must say, this month was very light! There were some good things such as Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island, but there were many days where nothing was released overall! Oh well, not every month can be an incredible one! Although, let’s be honest, any month is a win if a Mario game is released. Hope you guys enjoyed this month’s Mario Calendar, and I’ll see you next month :)
