Hello and welcome to spooky season! This month I fought and conquered two of the scariest things to exist: midterms and show week. The kicker being that they were both the same week! Isn't that fun... Well, I've successfully survived both, even if I am still feeling the effects from midterm. The important thing is that I survived and I'm still kicking!

Bit of a smaller Pipe Plaza this month, but I'm sure you'll enjoy it anyways! If you're interested in helping Pipe Plaza grow, do head over to the sign up page to see what's available! Enjoy the rest of the month, and a (bit early but oh well) Happy Halloween to you all~

Mario Calendar

Written by: GPM1000 (talk)

Hello everyone, it’s GPM1000 here with a very scary Mario calendar (that’s a lie, it’s exactly the same as usual)! I’m just going to assume you all know the drill by now, and if you don’t I’ll let you figure it out yourself! Don’t worry, it’s not too difficult to understand. I believe in you!

Overall, I would honestly have to say that this is one of the best months in Mario history. Not only did North America get blessed with the original Super Mario Bros. for the first time, but the world also got to see Super Mario Odyssey come out more than 30 years later and revolutionize everything once again. And of course, we got some spooks with Luigi’s Mansion 3 and a port of the original! Anyways, on that note, I hope you all have a fun, safe, and socially distant Halloween, and I’ll see you next month!
