    Yay, I didn't miss much
    Anyways,
    Paper Mario is a role playing game series where you play as Mario, but paperesque. There's a ton of random humor thrown into the series, so it's always a joy to replay them. The original and TTYD had turn based battle systems that are nice and easy to use, Super Paper Mario just made it so jumping on the enemies would make them take damage, and Sticker Star/Color Splash made it so your attacks revolved around Stickers and Cards respectively. Best game I can compare the series to is Earthbound, mare that ending
    Oh, not to mention, the stories are great (But Sticker's was meh)
    At the time I bought it, I had already played every other game in the series (Original, Super, and Sticker) and I enjoyed them very much (Sticker was just meh). I figured TTYD would also be amazing, and it was.
    I've been playing since December 2012. Replay value is still really high to me

    What is your favorite boss battle?

    Is this your favorite Paper Mario game?

    What is the lore behind the entire Paper Mario series? Do other games add on to the next game or have some impact?

    Also Icie you should put the upcoming sections in the kyg threads themselves so that people can see when it is their turn. :D

    Chapter 4 Spoilers
    By far. I utterly love this game. It has a good story along with a good battle system, and loads of glitches within the code. There's always something you can do for amusement in the game. Also, who doesn't like The Adventures of Flavio?
    Lore? I've never thought about it... that'll be fun to research. Games don't have an impact on eachother, but there's a few easter eggs that reference prequels.. some of my favorites being in the spoiler below
    Easter Eggs, there's minor spoilers

    Have you ever completed the 100-level dungeon? (I can't remember its actual name.)

    If so, how many attempts did it take? If not, how far did you make it?

    I completed it as a child... using an Action Replay. I've never actually attempted it legitimately, and haven't played the game since completing it shortly after release, so I don't really know if it was difficult or not. :P

    Gameplay is really the same all-round (which is pretty smooth) But I'm personally not a fan of Flurrie's action command timings, and a big fan of Vivian's
    There are no furries in TTYD :P
    Hm... It's hard picking between Bonetail and Magnus X. They were both fairly annoying to me on my first run
    Tadaaa (Obviously an opinion)
    Don't think so
    Pit of 100 trials. I have cleared it. It took me two tries, although I spent a lot of time in Glitzville practicing my superguards. I don't think I could do it in one try though, as I like grabbing the strange sack, bailing, then really going for gold. It's kinda tough, but not too tricky if you can superguard well. Bonetail just does A LOT of damage

    I never cleared that damn trial. You know how many times sad little me cried because I got to like room 43 then died. :(
    I wanted that special pixel...

    It's a pretty useful one. Today I just like playing Super through most of chapter 3, then going through the pit
    Or did you mean Badge in TTYD?
