Blogging While Paused

where video game characters speak out

Well now I’ve seen everything. (Well, not everything everything, but you know what I mean.) I stomped on a Koopa Troopa and knocked him out of his shell. He was right next to a pipe when it happened, so he slid right into it with his shell right next to him. I expected that he would just jump right back into it, but he didn’t. Instead, he just kicked it and sent it rolling! For like, no reason! I wasn’t even in the direction he was kicking it!

I can only wonder what might have been going through his head when that happened. Why would you kick your sole source of armor off a cliff when there’s nothing to be gained by it? Maybe he just didn’t have his wits about him yet, and thought I was over there. Maybe he was fed up with his job and getting stomped all the time, and he was just blowing off some steam. Heck, maybe he was an angsty teenager who was saying, “Take this, world! See if I care!” or something like that.

Well, looks like it’s time to un-pause. I’ll bet the next thing I do will be to stomp him again now that he doesn’t have his shell! Oh, um… I guess this will be one of those stomps that makes me feel guilty about it later…
