Super Paper Mario: The minds behind the lines

Thank goodness for MTV's Stephen Totilo. It's rare to find someone in the mainstream press who not only can write about video games, but write about them with accuracy and authority.

Totilo proves his worth again in an article just posted to MTV.com that gives gamers a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Super Paper Mario--in particular, the writing of Nintendo's latest platforming RPG.

Sounds like the two Nintendo of America writers who tackled the translation--Erik Peterson and Nate Bihldorff--had a blast and love the resulting wackiness as much as everyone else does (critics included).
