I essentially gave the final boss a toothache in order to expose his weak spot for massive damage.
That just happened.
Oh, but, is that not stupid enough for ya? Surely it isn't, for you jaded types. I'll bite.
Here's the real bomb drop: Moments ago, I started up one of the game's 240 toy props. Going in, I was expecting something akin to the extra doodads you'd get in Rhythm Heaven. Something you'd have a bit of fun with and then only touch again during those rare lapses of fun whilst playing the game you slopped in, possibly to cure a previous
lapse of fun.
Oh my, no. These "beans" were more than mere "beans".
These beans, when combined with decent physics and clever sound design, along with a background shot of an ocean sunset.. a tilt of your Gamepad and it's not unlike the sound of waves! Ain't that cute? No, shutup
. There's more.
What I've just done is provide the soundtrack, the ambiance, to a relationship's end. As I tilted the Gamepad up/down/side-to-side and any place in-between (I had to keep the beans tipping or else some surfer dude would yell at me for killing the gnarly wave-age), a flash cartoon started playing on my TV. A man, a woman, meeting up at the ocean's edge to discuss something serious.
After some tip-toeing around the issue, the handsome male finally comes clean.
A pull of his skin from his face and "I..... am an alien.".
It's obvious that they wanted me to take this against-all-odds love story very seriously
, but I just could not stop laughing. Not so much the story itself, but it was the mere concept of using beans in a box for such a thing that caught me off-guard. And in such a good way. It was fucking hilarious.
I have to wonder if all these extra "toys" are like this. Not even 30 minutes into the Game and Wario experience and I'm already soaked in tears of joy and laughter. Tee-hee!
