A big welcome back to all Loot Happens subscribers. Loot Happens is a weekly newsletter that is emailed and also gets posted to LootHappens.com.

It's important to note that for premium subscribers, game offerings and in-game content, every week is different. Sometimes it's in-game codes, Steam keys, and giveaways, but premium members will always get something special every mailing. We also occasionally get mind-blowing early access or premium games that pay for an entire year's subscription.

Each newsletter is generally structured as Premium Loot > Free Sub Giveaways > Game Feature > Game discounts.

Key Giveaway For Premium Subscribers: SOS OPS!

SOS OPS! isn't your typical emergency simulator. Forget serious medical procedures or perfectly controlled fire extinguisher streams. This game revels in chaos! Imagine Wobbly Life or Human Fall Flat, but instead of running errands or exploring, you're putting out fires, rescuing kittens, and facing other unpredictable emergencies. The ragdoll physics guarantees hilarious moments as you and your friends grapple with the controls, creating your brand of heroic (and sometimes not-so-heroic) problem-solving. SOS OPS! is a perfect choice for gamers looking for a lighthearted and fun co-op experience.

Venture back in time to the moment when Princess Peach beckoned Mario to the shadowy streets of Rogueport, enticing him with the promise of an ancient treasure buried beneath the city. Though it's been a mere two decades since Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door graced the GameCube, the absence of traditional turn-based RPG battles in the Paper Mario series has made it feel like aeons. Yet, amidst the whispers of nostalgic fans, a glimmer of hope persisted, a hope now realized in the form of the Nintendo Switch remake of this beloved classic.

This revitalized rendition of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door is not merely a resurrection but a celebration of why the original captured hearts. It seamlessly marries the essence of Mario's iconic journey with contemporary enhancements, ensuring its relevance even in the modern gaming landscape. Just as Princess Peach's call to Rogueport compelled Mario, I implore you to embark on this timeless odyssey.

The game has the same charm today as in 2004

In the enchanting world of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, the timeless appeal of its witty script and vibrant setting remains as captivating today as it did in 2004. From the outset, the game establishes its comedic prowess, with Rogueport's bustling chaos and quirky characters adding layers of humour and depth to the narrative. Whether it's the comedic rivalry between the Pianta Syndicate and Robbo Thieves or the hilariously misguided attempts of spirits to curse Mario, every interaction is a blend of laughter and world-building.

The game's clever storytelling extends beyond Mario's adventures, offering engaging interludes where players assume the roles of Princess Peach and Bowser. While some elements of Princess Peach's segments may show signs of age, such as repetitive scenarios, they still contribute to the overall charm and narrative development. The inclusion of Bowser's escapades adds a comedic twist, showcasing his bumbling leadership amidst his loyal but inept minions.

A standout feature is the recurring encounters with Luigi, whose humorous anecdotes about his exploits in the Waffle Kingdom add a delightful layer of storytelling. The remake's attention to detail, like the unique babbling noises for character dialogue, elevates these interactions, highlighting the developers' dedication to enhancing the game's charm.

Bottom Line

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door returns to its RPG origins with a stunning remake that stays true to its roots. With a richly diverse turn-based combat system blending real-time elements, endearing party members integral to the narrative, and a witty script that breathes life into Rogueport and its environs, this remake is a must-play for fans. Modern enhancements address past gameplay quirks without losing the essence, ensuring Mario's quest for the Crystal Stars remains as captivating as ever. Its enduring charm cements its status as a timeless Nintendo classic, promising enjoyment for generations.
