In Mario vs. Donkey Kong he's noisy just like he is in Super Mario 64. Back when he was only known as Jumpman or running around the sewers with his brother Luigi, he played a strong silent type. I respected that.
Now you can't shut him up. He's always exclaiming, in his caricature Italian accent, "Let's a-go!" or "Momma mia!" It's downright awful.
You are SO friggin' right! 100% Agree!
It's-a me! Marrrrrio!
Hell yeah. Capcom did the same thing to Megaman. When I played Megaman 2 and 3, I imagined The Blue Bomber as an edgy combat veteran. Now, he sounds like a two-year old on helium. Annoying as hell.
Ah, thank-a you! You have a brought great-a joy to this-a old Italian stereotype-a!
