Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga high playthrough log part 2/4

Chateau de Chucklehuck

Chateau de Chucklehuck, to the southwest, is the only other area you have access to for now... This house has a bunch of statues of barrels and fruit, with instructions on how to make chuckola cola... Part of the recipe is you need to tell funny jokes to the fruit mixture until it laughs... The quaity of the fruit + the quality of the jokes affects the quality of the chuckola cola... it starts bubbling...

There's also a statue of "Father of Chuckola Cola, First Generation Chateau Owner - Bubbles"

A barrel maze, kinda reminiscent of the inner polygon maze in Super Mario RPG's sunken ship...

Right after exiting the maze M&L met the thief Popple, and his rookie disciple, amnesiac Bowser wearing a thief mask. This is an easy miniboss battle. Bowser lobs hammers at you VERY slowly...

For some reason, fighting you guys... Makes my gut flare up something fierce...
Suddenly he remembers he can breathe fire... lol so that's how he gets that ability.
Rookie! You bloated idiot! Who took you in when you were dazed and lost on the mountain? Me! You worthless vermin!
Popple and Bowser run away and try to go

Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga high playthrough log part 1/4

Prologue - Mushroom Kingdom

Some ambassadors from the Beanbean Kingdom came to the Mushroom Kingdom and stole Peach's voice and replaced it with explosives... now she makes things explode whenever she talks. After a really silly scene where Toad comes to get the Mario bros... they go to see Peach, and Bowser is there... Tutorial fight... It turns out Bowser doesn't even want to kidnap her anymore because of her explosive voice. He hires Mario and Luigi as minions to help get Peach's voice back so he can then go back to kidnapping her...

This Castle garden area serves as a movement tutorial to get you used to moving/jumping around with both characters, and there's some useful stuff to collect before moving on past the point of no return... Boarded Bowser's airship, and his minions give you some more tutorials on how to battle and stuff... They also took Mario+Luigi's photos for their passports... oh wow, your passport photo pose you used shows up in the save screen for the whole game...

Bowser's fleet goes after Cackletta. Cackletta's minion Fawful... has a way with words...
