Do you guys have a different name for the second Zelda game over there? I've never seen it referred to as "The Legend of Zelda II: Link's Adventure" before.

No, it should be Zelda 2: The Adventure Of Link

What about the 8bit Mario in TTYD, loved that little easter egg. Never actually got around to completing TTYD because the last boss was hard. Might have to re play it now that I'm older lol.
Imagine a really cool picture here.

In the original when you are in Boo's Mansion, one of the rooms has a pot that you can jump into. If you do, you emerge as 8-bit Mario and the original music starts playing, along with the original jumping sound when you jump. Sadly, when you leave the room you turn back into 64-bit Paper Mario, but it's fun while it lasts.

In the third chapter of "Paper Mario," if you go into a jar (like a pipe) in the Boo Mansion, 8 Bit Mario pops out.

I was noticed fact 5 when I was younger.

I knew the Vivian and Zelda things, and I also knew about the 8-bit easter egg in boo mansion.

I was skeptical about this game at first, having never played a paper Mario before it all looked a bit odd. But after having a go of it and watching many teaser videos i am completely sold. Graphics look amazing and game play looks very smooth Just a quick shout out to Matthew Castle, great review in the mag, loving your work!
