She’s the Sheriff

She’s the Sheriff

At first I was pretty divided on whether or not to include the tagline of the image as the title of the post. But in retrospect I definitely think naming the image “She’s the Sheriff” worked better.

Man, just imagine if Princess Peach actually was a cop. Maybe then you could rescue herself…And I’m not including Super Princess Peach, which was an awesome game but also the black swan of the series. It’s not like the Mushroom Kingdom’s guards would ever rescue her. They are completely useless.

Better yet, what about a game where Princess Daisy has to rescue Princess Peach. Princess Daisy definitely has the whole tomboy thing going on and it would also be an excuse for Nintendo to put her in the forefront for once. I would say having her rescue Luigi, but that would feel a little too much like Super Princess Peach. Plus, male gamers would play through the game just to see if she gets a kiss at the end.

    Nice, got a chuckle out of me.

    I completely agree with you about Daisy. Give her a starring role for once. Maybe not to rescue anyone, since that’s the objective of every Mario ever, but just to go beat someone up that’s being bad. Maybe DK’s off his nut (since he can’t make up his mind about whether he’s good or bad) and she needs to go tell him to chill out or something.

    Anyway, more Daisy please.

    I’d like to point out that in a game where Daisy is rescuing Peach, I would complete that game too just to see if she gets a kiss at the end. And maybe a little something more than a kiss. They could invite Samus.

    What? I’m just say’n.

    Getting a vague S&M vibe.

    Perhaps the next Mario&Luigi game will have the princesses playable as a third and fourth character.

    I’m still hoping for a game that features Waluigi as either a main character or an important villain (heck, just make him a boss or something). Otherwise, I have a hard time considering him a legitimate character in the series. Just filler in the racing/sports/party games.

    No no no, what we need is a Peach/Daisy buddy cop game.

    At first I was trying to figure out what the Pokemon joke was.. ’til I realized there wasn’t one.

    Could have sworn she was in some Officer Jenny cosplay
