Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

KEY INFORMATION

Time passes, the pages turn...and a new chapter unfolds in an unfamiliar land! Get ready for a two-dimensional role-playing adventure for the ages, as Mario™ returns to paper form in pursuit of a threat unlike any he's ever faced.

  • Take to the stage! Paper Mario 2 builds on the action-packed battle system of the original RPG with the addition of audience participation. Not only will timing Action Commands help you dodge or inflict damage, but impressing the crowd will help you build power for super attacks! Try not to disappoint the audience, though, or you'll pay!
  • Don't fold under pressure! This time, Mario will have to make full use of his papery qualities to survive. Fold into a paper airplane and take to the air, turn sideways to slip through narrow passages and roll into a tube to bounce to safety.
  • No need to go it alone! Many strange friends will join your party, and you'll have to rely on their skills to survive. Even former enemies may bail you out, so keep an open mind!

Game Storyline: Peach is enjoying a vacation with her loyal servant, Toadsworth, when a mysterious creature captures her. The one clue is a treasure map she had sent to Mario earlier. When our hero hears news of her capture, he follows the map's clues to the Star Crystals, strange artifacts of unknown power. Complicating the matter are three veiled figures plotting the return of the great shadow witch, an army of strange new enemies and one angry Bowser, who embarks on an adventure of his own to find out who's cutting into his villain business.

Characters: Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Toadsworth, Bowser, Kammy Koopa, Toads, Koopas, Goombas, Yoshis, a wealth of new and established characters.

How to progress through the game: Explore the towns and locales of a massive world as Mario follows clues in his hunt for the Star Crystals. Many characters will join his party and aid him along the way, so talk to everyone. When Mario enters a battle, he'll hit the stage, where well-timed button presses will help him dodge danger and inflict extra damage. Winning battles gains Mario experience points, and as he levels up, he grows more and more powerful. Badges and items will also augment his strength.

Special powers/weapons/moves/features: This time around, much more emphasis is placed on the paper abilities of Mario and his friends. He can turn sideways to slip through cracks, fold into a paper airplane to fly, roll into a tube and much more. He can also use tons of items like hammers and thunderbolts.
