Woah, exciting

I love the interpretation of Bowser. The costume is lacking in some aspects (facial expressions), but his attitude and all is solid gold.

That was just amazing. I'm honestly speechless.

Amazing episode. The plot just keeps getting thicker and deeper as the story moves on. The characters and their attitudes are phenomenal, and this episode shows that so very well.

The only thing, in my opinion, keeping this from being a perfect episode is the one annoying beep/censor toward the beginning. That throws off the mood only slightly, and since it's not the fault of the video maker, I probably shouldn't let it count against the video in my view.

Superb job, I can't wait to see more in the future.

That was really good. Sucks that the kid died, he was my favorite character.

That was amazing. Love the ending especially.

Utterly phenomenal job. I can't wait to see how it ends.

They're dropping like flies. I was not expecting Link and PT to buy it. Cannot wait for the conclusion, that was amazing.

I thought the costume was very well-done considering their budget.

Ganondorf: You and me are more alike than you'd like to know.
Cpt. falcon: I'm nothing like you!

I see what you did there, very clever. :D

Seriously, this show keeps getting better and better, phenomenal job on this episode. I especially love the two guys who play Luigi and Ganondorf, their dramatic delivery makes their every line that much sweeter.

Excellent! The end really tugged on the old heart strings. I can't wait for the next one.

You know... I didn't get that at all until you pointed it out. >___>

I honestly almost want to cry right now. All of the deaths have been saddening, but the one character that I connected the most with... the one who was just so innocent... *sobs*

Just...wow!

Not a bad moment from start to finish. About the only bad thing I can comment on was Browser's mouth didn't really move much.

I can't wait to see the next (And maybe final?) episode. Especially if Kirby returns.

I'm surprised at the number of characters getting killed, but that just shows the series isn't messing around :).

Also, grinned when the b-dubs appeared, as the 'oldest demons', as Browser described them.

Wow... just wow. This episode was just freaking amazing. I was surprised to see the length and this episode didn't hold any punches. It makes you really wonder who is the the one pulling all the strings. Judging by what is all said it must be someone from a much older generation of video games.

Jeez wouldn't it be a trip if it was Pac-Man? That and Pitfall Harry are the only 2 actual named original video games characters I can come up with.

Really Pac-Man kind of fits the profile of the killer if you work on loose interpretations. For starters...

Fast: That could be interpreted since he needs to out run the ghosts.

Intelligent: He could be considered that since he had to guide around mazes.

Leaving the entrails behind could be the writers interpretation of when Pac-Man would eat the ghosts and only their eyes remained.

Can anyone else think of much older characters, that were original to the games, that fitthe profile?

Erm, I don't really know anything about Cpt. Falcon, so .... yeah, I still don't get that bit, lol.

Indeed. I think that was kinda the point. And with the weapon Luigi helped create, no less!

I think...if we go by what Browser said... that the oldest things are reclaiming the kingdom... that it'll be the oldest one of them all - the Pong Paddle! Not sure how they'd show that in episode, but still...

Doug:

In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Ganondorf and Captain Falcon had identical movesets and attacks, the only difference being that Ganondorf was heavier/slower than Cap. That exchange in their conversation was most likely a shout-out to that.

Doug:

Erm, I don't really know anything about Cpt. Falcon, so .... yeah, I still don't get that bit, lol.

I'm guessing it's because they both have essentially the same moveset on super smash bros brawl

edit: gah fail, too slow

I knew it! I knew Ganondorf was behind it all. I can't wait for the last episode.

D=
they killed the kid.. he was an simple child who couldnt hurt anyone D:

First off, great episode, like always.

Second, I wonder if this episode running 25 min, what the finale's run time would be. I can only hope they don't try to drag any scenes out in the next one just to be longer.

Third, where was mario this episode? They did not push his narrative forward at all.

Ganondorf is awesome. I love what you guys have done with him! Bowser was great! The poor Pokemon kid! Can't wait to see how this ends!!

this episode was kinda like what happened with luigi last episode since it was very mario heavy.
omg i think i cried a little at the end.best episode.Bowser,ironicly,seems like 1 of the more honorable and level headed people in this show,even though he was in 1 episode,and probably 1 of the most sane.I wish this was a real TV series.with it's long runtime it seems like i should be.

curse you game and watch. i should of known.

That was great. =D

I knew Bowswer was going to say it before he did. I even said it out loud right before him.

"I'm sorry Luigi, but your princess is in another castle"

Hehe its great how you fit bits of humor in and still keep things feeling serious. =D

Holy crap that was fantastic... I don't want the conclusion to come really, cause that'll be the end of it all :( It was just... wow guys, absolutely great. If you could get this on TV it'd the only thing worth watching. I'm hoping for a DVD release :D

Anyone else fight the tears a little there... just me... oh?!

Another great episode!

I thought about that and tried matching it up with the things we all ready knew about the killer. It didn't seems to fit all the criteria for the killer even though you can't get much older then pong. I really think though that the big boss will be someone actually recognized as an actual character. The pong paddles weren't really characters.

I just finished watching this, and all I can say is... wow.

I liked the shoutouts, and their interpreation of Bowser was very interesting.

But the end... that was just... I dunno... after what happened to Link and all, but what REALLY got under my skin was what happened to Red, probably the nicest, most innocent character in the whole series!!!

SOMEONE WILL PAY FOR THIS....

That was....long?

Awesome episode... the end was pretty amazing, kinda want the song now

"Well excuse me, Princess!"
god that was epic! haha

marioman360:
"Well excuse me, Princess!"
god that was epic! haha

Hell Yes

Great episode. What an interpretation of the Pokemon TV Show theme at the end too...

This episode and Episode 8 occur simultaneously each one looking at a different brother's side of the story. Mario was off doing what he did in Episode 8.

That was awesome. I almost cried a little at the end. It seems like the series can't end next episode although I know you guys are only doing 10.
