Power Outage, Retro Memories, and Super Paper Mario Recap

Power Outage

Yesterday night, a little after 11:00, 11:15 according to when my Tivo cut out, my power went out. I was in the middle of playing my new Super Paper Mario game, and thank God for saves. As the power went out I was unable to sleep yet, so I thought back to the times I played the NES, back then the the equivalent to saving was to never unplug your NES and unhook the coaxial or a/v cord from your TV set and plug them back in when your ready to continue playing Super Mario Bros. 3. A power outage, back then, would have been “fatal”.

Oh yeah, and speaking of Super Paper Mario, I’ve played it for nearly 7 hours and I’m still loving it. Who needs Super Mario Galaxy when you have World 4 for Super Paper Mario. From what I can see, it may not be as I said earlier when it comes to length, But I can say with out a doubt that the hilarious script itself is much longer than that of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. The script spoof, parodies and makes fun of everything that you could possibly imagine. The script talks about everything from the internet, computer geeks, cellphones, Zelda, the Wii’s hardware itself, computer archiving, 2d platforms, 3d platforms, dating and anything else you can think of.

Any How, speaking of power outages I still didn’t know what caused the huge power outage of 2003, I couldn’t figure out, yesterday, why didn’t the news cover this enough. At any rate today I looked it up and the final conclusion was that the power outage was caused by FirstEnergy Corporation’s failure to trim trees in part of its Ohio service area, seams kind of boring, that’s probably why I missed it, not interesting enough.

Not tired yet, I played my Nintendo DS lite for a half hour or so, The power went back on about 4 hours later, 3 hours before I went to sleep.
