TOADS HOUSE (1:02:57)

NINTENDO SELECTS (multiple choice quiz, I’ll throw a question to you and you answer a b c d)

Nintendo’s treatment of Toadette seems to be rather sporadic. One minute she is as popular as toad, next she doesn’t exist. Mario kart has been no exception to this rule. So, my question to you today is: Which one of these 4 Mario Karts was Toadette not a playable character.

A – Double Dash

B – Wii

C – 7 -

D – 8


STORY MODE (ill read a paragraph as if I am a game character and you guess who I am)

So you want to hear my story do ya? Well, lets start with the only thing anyone ever talks about. My Father… He is a compulsive liar. He lied to me about my mother and he even lied to a bunch of kids about being there father. I still don’t think they realise they’re not his kids. Even so, he is still my father and I will remain loyal to him no matter what. I will keep the family business going, even though it always seems destined to fail.

Who am I?
