Director Notes

Post-Damage Invincibility (talk) now writes for the Quiz section of the Fun Stuff.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! Also, I’d like to thank everyone who took the time to make their sections extra-special and to those who decided to do extra sections for this as well.

Thank you and I hope you enjoy Issue 60!

Mystery Images

By Tucayo (talk)

Hi, everybody! This is your now-has-one-more-core-staff-position Mystery Images writer, Tucayo! And yeah, I now have to manage the statistics. Or at least that's what I think the Statistics Manager does. Now, let's get to what you probably care about, my section. Once again I changed things up a little bit, last time you had to guess logos, now I'll put your Marioverse Geography skills to the test! That's right, you'll see 5 snippets from different locations from different games and you gotta guess which places are depicted in each one. If you have any suggestions regarding my section (or something off-topic, perhaps suggestions on whether I should grow a beard), please PM them to me by clicking the following link, it's not a virus, I promise.
