Mario and the Swine Flu by PaulistaPenguin Mario and the Swine Flu by PaulistaPenguin
I think this is the most expressive drawing I've ever made.

:bulletorange: I've been watching people on TV dying because of the swine flu. Yesterday, it was a little girl who died in a plane, before arriving to her goal. So yes, I'm kind of shocked here. I linked the H1N1 with the Three Little Pigheads from Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins, plus Dr. Mario and Nurse Peach, and I came up with this; this drawing is my tribute to the victims of the virus. Rest in peace, folks!

I like Peach's leg. I really love how it came up!
:bulletred: Edit: Yellow light added to the drawing.

:bulletgreen: Eu estive vendo pessoas na TV morrendo por causa da gripe suína. Ontem, foi uma garotinha que morreu num avião, antes mesmo do avião pousar. Pois é, eu tô meio chocado aqui. Eu liguei o H1N1 com os Three Little Pigheads de Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins, mais o Dr. Mario e a Enfermeira Peach, e fiz isso; este desenho é meu tributo às vítimas do vírus. Descansem em paz, pessoal!

Wow, all those poor people, especially that little girl. Hopefully one day we'll be able to eridicate the really horrible diseases like this one just like we did with smallpox. A very touching tribute and awesome piece of artwork that you have here.

Well I found every boss from that game so fun. I love they way how you stomp them and then it plays an amusing sound, making the boss battle so worthful.

That's absolutely true. :nod: I'm a particular fan of the Super Mario Land series as well (well, until Wario Land, I guess).

Well I found the Wario land's spinoff okay, because it's a fun game and it's nice to see the antagonist became an anti-hero, but then it turned out it's some kind of puzzle-platformer (I think they added that in the third one) But it's still enjoyable, the fourth Wario Land one is my favorite.

Wario Land 4 is unbeatable! I've also played Wario Land: Shake It! for a while, and I think it's quite fun, but not as much as other fun-filled Wii titles.

Wario Land4 is one of the most delightfully weird-ass games of all time.

I can agree with that, since they launched the Mario sports and New Super Mario Bros Wii my mind just blowed
