The 'Shroom:Issue XLIX/Interview
Hello everybody! This month I decided to interview Fawfulfury65! Let’s get started.
When did you join the wiki?
- I first joined on April 25, 2009 as Megamariofan65, but I forgot my password. On May 27, 2009, I created my Fawfulfury65 account (with a password I could remember, of course).
Do you have, or had any special rankings on the wiki?
- I am currently a Sysop and I am a former Patroller. I’m also the director of the Music & Artwork section of the ‘Shroom.
Do you have any positions in The 'Shroom?
- Yes, along with being the Music & Artwork director, I write for the Screenshot of the Month and the Quiz on Fun Stuff.
What do you think The 'Shroom could improve on?
- I think we could find more writers. There’s a lot of open sections on the sign up list right now.
Thoughts on Community Polls?
- I think they are fun to vote on and I’m always excited to see the new poll question.
Thoughts on "Did you Know"?
- I usually don’t read it because it’s all the way at the bottom of the main page, but it always has a good piece of information when I see it.
What do you think about the upcoming awards?
- I’m excited for the Mario Awards and I can’t wait.
Are you on Chat?
- I was for a little bit but now I’m inactive there. I’d rather talk on the forums.
Who do you think writes the best article in The 'Shroom?
- There are so many great writers that I can’t just choose one.
Are you on Userpedia?
- I have an account and I’ve made a few edits but I’m rarely online there.
What would be your favorite Non-Mario game?
- I really like The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. The Donkey Kong games would also be my favorite non-Mario games, if you don’t count them as Mario games.
What would be your favorite Mario game?
- If it counts as a Mario game, I’d say Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest. Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga is a great one as well.
What would be your least favorite Mario game?
- Mario vs. Donkey Kong, Mario Tennis (GBC), or Mario Party 8. I’ve never played Hotel Mario so I haven’t seen how bad that one was yet.
What is the easiest Mario game you've played?
- Mario is Missing! on NES. It’s impossible to die in that one. You only have to jump on Bowser once to defeat him.
What is the hardest Mario game you've played?
- Including DK games, Donkey Kong Country Returns is the hardest. I also find Yoshi’s Island DS to be extremely hard.
What game consoles do you own?
- I own a Wii, a Gamecube, a Nintendo 64, a Super Nintendo, and an NES. I have no Xboxes or Playstations.
What handhelds do you own?
- A 3DS, a DS, a DS Lite, a DSi, a Game Boy Advance SP, a Game Boy Color, a Game Boy Pocket, and a Game Boy, which I never play because I don’t feel like finding four AAA batteries.
Thoughts on the 3DS?
- I think it’s a wonderful and innovative device. It’s very shiny too. The 3D doesn’t seem to hurt my eyes at all, so I use it a lot. I’m a bit annoyed that a lot of things on the 3DS aren’t coming until an update in a few months. The launch titles aren’t that great either, but I’m sure better games will come up soon.
What 3DS color do you want?
- I have an aqua blue 3DS and it’s beautiful.
What do you think is the 3DS's best feature, besides the 3D?
- Besides the games, I enjoy the Mii Maker. I would rather have an internet browser though, but that’s not coming until the update. I also like how it keeps track of the games you play on it and how long you play them.
Thoughts on Mario Sports Mix?
- I really don’t like this game. The selection of characters isn’t too great, half of the sports are absolutely monotonous, and it’s way too easy. I’m not really into sports games.
Thoughts on Mario Kart 3DS?
- It sounds like it will be good. I hope there’s a good character selection and better music, since Mario Kart DS had rather awful music in my opinion.
Thoughts on Paper Mario 3DS?
- I’m most excited for this game than all the other upcoming Mario games. The previous Paper Marios were all fantastic (yes, that includes Super Paper Mario), so I’d love to see more of it. I just hope it’s more difficult than SPM.
Thoughts on Super Mario 3D?
- It looks a lot like another Super Mario Galaxy game. I’m not a fan of that series, so I hope it’s not. I want to see a whole new Super Mario series. The game seems like it will be fun, though.
Who is your favorite Mario character?
- I like Fawful, Diddy Kong, and Hammer Bro. Especially Fawful because he has fantastic quotes that always seem to make me laugh.
Who is your favorite Nintendo character, besides a Mario character?
- Excluding characters from Mario, DK, Yoshi, and Wario games, I’d choose Meta Knight or Charizard. Charizard is one of my favorite Pokemon, and Meta Knight’s just plain cool.
What Mario character is your least favorite?
- I really, really can’t stand Daisy (sorry Daisy fans). Her voice just annoys me and she and Peach are always a pain when I play them in Mario Party games.
Mario or Luigi? Choose one, and explain why:
- I personally prefer Mario because he looks more heroic. I also always play him over Luigi in the games because he is much easier to control than Luigi.
Which Paper Mario game do you like the most?
- I really like the Thousand Year Door because it is creative, fun, and has great music.
Which Mario & Luigi game do you like the most?
- Superstar Saga is my favorite because it has the most replay value out of all of them. It is fun and creative and also has very funny dialogue.
Which Mario Kart do you like the most?
- Mario Kart Wii is my favorite because it has the most characters and really fun courses. I really don’t like how I’m always getting pummeled by Blue Shells, though.
Name some of your hobbies:
- I love playing video games, going on the computer (obviously), playing sports, and drawing.
Can you play an instrument?
- Yes, I play the trombone in my school’s band. I used to play a violin.
What is your favorite food?
- Definitely Pizza. I eat it almost every day.
Do you have any pets?
- I have an adorable dog, two evil parakeets, and a few fish. I might not be having the fish much longer though because they are such a pain.
