Mario Paint Composer

Chances are good that if you grew up in the 16 bit era, you were able to play around with Mario Paint and it’s awesome music composer. It was pretty darn popular, which is fairly evident with the creation of Mario Paint Composer. I can’t quite recall when the program came out, but it is basically a Windows version of composer in Mario Paint. I’ve collected some awesome tunes that people have made in the composer. Check them out!

My Top 50 RPGs

As someone who has played a lot of RPGs, I feel that I’m able to stick them together in a big pot, draw them out one by one, and build them into a list that is ordered from my most to least favourite RPGs ever. I had approximately 70 listed, and I’m sure that I missed another dozen or so, because after playing so many after approximately twenty years, it becomes a little difficult to keep track of them all!

Anyway, here it is, my top 50 RPGs. This article really serves no purpose at all, I just felt like writing something on a Wednesday for once.
