if i didn't read your post, deadeye, i'd have thought you did something embarrassing in front of your girlfriend lol
Hehe, we've been together for five years. We're way beyond embarrassing each other by now. Getting sucked into RPGs is just embarrassing in general. RPGs are like the uber-nerdy darkside of gaming for me. I just can't stand that whole RPG fanboy "I cried when Aeris died" stuff, so RPGs are a rather guilty pleasure.
At least I don't play MMOs.
Anyway, to anyone wondering: If you haven't played Super Paper Mario yet but were wanting to, just rent it. Seriously. You'll beat it in two days and there isn't anything to do after that except collect stuff that you don't need. And it's not so much an RPG as it is a platform game with TOO MUCH DIALOG and a crapload of truly useless items (I beat the game only having bought like five things from the store in Flipside. I don't even know what most of the items do, I never had any reason to use them.). The original Paper Mario for N64 was way better.
