Bowser’s sidescrolling segments in The Thousand Year Door were few, far between and much too short. Super Paper Mario fixed this by letting you be Bowser forever.
I would like a Bowser game. Make a sidescrolling Paper Mario spinoff all about Bowser. Nothing but Bowser. And make it hilarious.
Nitendo, Now your playing with power.

Ash: Hi friend! I use a Wacom Cintiq, which I highly recommend but that might be overkill for a first tablet because they can get pricey…
- Screen/non-screen tablet: For a first tablet, the main thing you need to know that there is a bit of a “learning curve” when it comes to using a tablet (just like using any new medium), but a lot of the learning curve comes from the new hand-eye coordination that you need to develop if you are using a non-screen tablet (the kind where the picture is not directly underneath your pen, it’s up on your moniter). For some people, this is can be a looong step and a big change! I know that when I first got a tablet, I had been drawing for years and years, and my digital art never quite looked like my traditional art style until I finally bought a screen tablet.
I’ve met a lot of veteran/pro artists that pretty much refused to draw digitally until they got an iPad/Cintiq, but I also know artists who transitioned very naturally into using a tablet. You won’t really know until you try, but just keep that in mind.
The other things you wanna look for depend on what you want to do with the tablet:
- Sensitivity/pressure levels need to suit your art style or what you’ll be using it for - the more “detailed” art you’re going to be doing, the more sensitivity it needs to have. If you’re sketch/paint artist, you want more sensitivity, but if you’re doing graphic design or photo editing, you can get away with less. The tablets right now generally have either 1024 levels of pressure, or 2048 levels of pressure. You can still draw delicate work with a lower sensitivity tablet of course, it just won’t be as delicate as a higher level one would. This, and size, is what generally affects the tablet cost.
- Size of the tablet depends on how you draw physically. If you like to draw very little (size-wise) or use short arm/wrist movements, then you can get away with using a very small sized tablet. The picture won’t be affected cause you can always zoom and change resolution and move paper position on the screen. But if you use long arm movements to draw, a small tablet will be very uncomfortable and force you to draw in a different manner than you would naturally, so keep that in mind. I have also been told large size tablets are a must for engineering/architecture/drafting type artists.
- Buttons can be important depending on your style too. For many people, digital drawing is not as intuitive as traditional, so that is where buttons come in handy - they can function as whatever you need them to be, so for things like hotkeys/shortcuts to change the brush or size or paper angle or zoom etc etc… And the favorite shortcut for digital artists: CTRL-Z lol. However, if the time between changing modes doesn’t bother you, then you can get away with a tablet with few/no buttons and just use your keyboard or the mouse to select new options.
There are other options too, like wireless/cordless options depend on how you position yourself and pen styles, but I think the above listed are the main things you want to decide on. Also you want to make sure your computer/art programs are compatible with the drivers and all.
Brand-wise, Wacom is practically the industry standard because it dominates tablets, but have read that Monoprice/Huion/Turcom are also good.
As far as surface-tablets go, Wacom has the cintiq companion which is also hella expensive but extremely well-recieved because it’s high pressure sensitivity and built to run art programs, but iPads, Slates, Galaxy Notes, etc etc all exist and can be used for drawing as well (just need to purchase a tablet pen). I am not as familiar with the differences between these though, but those are options.
Hope that helps!
