As the age-range of the average video game player continues to increase, its only natural that game makers will begin to develop more mature titles as their demographic becomes more mature itself. This is not to mean that games require more blood, gore, or sexuality. Sometimes, older gamers only need a figure that they themselves can identify with.
Instead of creating entire new franchises that feature fresh, adult-themed characters; the world of gaming can just take its existing superstars and transform them into more mature figures of the industry.
There’s no easier way to do this than by slapping a beard on several established characters. Because there’s nothing more mature than a man with a ferret on his chin.
The new comic focuses on how a MMO might appear if it were set inside of Marios vibrant world of the Mushroom Kingdom. In this case, we’re just going to use World of Warcraft as a base for class types (afterall – if you understand what an MMO is then you’re, most likely familiar with WoW).
Ever wonder how Mario would look if he were a nature loving Druid? How about Bowser as a tank or Luigi the champion of light? Follow that with with Toad laying plumber pipe totems and Yoshi with a Goomba pet? How about Wario as a Dry Bones commanding Death Knight, Princess Daisy wielding the holy light of the Priest, a Shy Guy alongside his Warlock pet – King Boo, Koopa Troopa the Mage, and Waluigi as a sneaky Roque.
Food existing in video games as a health and power-up item has become a classic staple of the industry, but am I the only one disturbed by the fact that we see characters eating randomly found food that just happens to laying directly on the ground. Whether its slices of pizza in any TMNT arcade game, rolling mushrooms in Mario, or turkey legs in Final Fight we witness gaming heroes practicing horrible food safety attitudes.
Upon beating Dragon Age II, a post-game save file is created. One would assume this is to allow players the chance to continue their adventures as the Champion of Kirkwall after finishing up the main story. The problem, however, is the only thing gamers can do post-game is run around their mansion (or shop the Black Emporium if they have access). This will finally change late July when the game receives story-driven DLCthat will finally allow players to venture outside of the Hawke Estate after completing the main quest.
