Some Super Mario fan art that's long overdue. Listen, and I know this is pretty blasphemous: I have always been way more into the Super Mario games than I have Sonic.

Now before you throw produce at me, I really am a huge Sonic fan. Really! I have been since I was a kid - I am pretty sure there are pictures of me in the first grade wearing Sonic t-shirts! But I came to Sonic through the cartoons and comics. I had a Sega Genesis growing up, but Sonic games were always too hard for me. I didn't understand the mechanics of memorizing pathways to build up momentum. I never got to "go fast," so I mostly stuck with Mario games - while I filled up notebooks with sketches of Sonic, Tails, Sally and the Freedom Fighters.

VII

I hadn't done any Final Fantasy VII fan art in ages - and I pretty much lived and breathed FF7 fanart, fan fiction, and fandom from 1997 to 2004! I replayed the game recently via iOS and it definitely looks and FEELS its age, at this point. But there is still so much memorable characterization and story there. I really can't wait for the remake!

By the way, something I noticed when replaying FF7: When did the mopey Advent Children version of Cloud become the default? Like, mopey Cloud IS there. But Cloud is also flirtatius, kinda' a dick, confident and definitely a cornball in the original game. Granted, there is an in-story reason that he might be acting this way - that these traits might be "out of character" for him. But man-oh-man did they lean really hard into mopey emo Cloud in Kingdom Hearts and Advent Children - and it seems like that version is the one most remembered. Which is a shame, as that's the way less layered and interesting one.

Thanks again to the guys at Find the Computer Room for having me on!

I am also slowly but surely typing out answers to whatever questions were asked that we didn't get to on the show. So no worries!
