Episode 81 - In the mix with Chapter Six

Previously on skankcore64, I braved through the dense jungles and volcanic caverns of Lavalava Island. After locating the five Yoshi youngsters, my Cheep-Cheep companion, Sushie, and I battled fearsome foes until the final showdown with a three-headed Lava Piranha Plant. With her water-based attacks and defense options, Sushie was the perfect choice as a side-kick here, and increasing her abilities to Ultra Rank made things that much easier. It was still a close fight and I probably would have been staring at a Game Over screen if I hadn't boosted her to the ultimate level.

Today I'll be tackling the leftover bits of Chapter Five and then I'll be headed directly into the next, after a little housekeeping in Toad Town of course. I have no idea what's in store for me next, but the game is starting to get into the final hours. There are three chapters to go with the last one consisting of Peach's Castle and the Bowser boss battle. Head on over to Shacknews Twitch to join me on the last few adventures of Paper Mario or you can follow along with the embedded viewer above.
