There is no way you are going to be able to play Kinect with that bad boy in your room.

I’m a little floored at this statement. SMB 3 is without a doubt one of the best Mario titles, and an unbelievable achievement on the NES. The thought that Miyamoto is “embarrassed” by it is really hard to wrap my head around.
If Miyamoto has anything to be embarrassed about it’s Wii Music, not Super Mario Bros. 3.
(SNES All-Stars version of SMB 3 shown above. I’m lazy and didn’t feel like hunting down and uploading a pic of the original).
October 18, 1985 the Nintendo Entertainment System launched in America, Happy 25th Birthday NES!
In honor of the console that gave CPR to the entire video game industry and made it what it is today I took a quick pic of my very own NES from my childhood (technically half of it is my little brothers, but possession is nine-tenths of the law so it’s mine now Jeremy!).
The old girl is still kicking too. A couple of months ago I hooked her up because my oldest daughter wanted to play a little Mickey Mousecapade, which she decided didn’t “look that good” after a few minutes. Kids these days.
I can’t believe that it’s been 25 years! Happy Birthday Mario! The video game industry would not be the same place without you.
It’s a little surreal watching this. Same claims that Nintendo is hold back stock to boost demand that we have today, same worries that video game violence is hurting kids. Kind of puts things into perspective.
Also, all those people standing in line after line to get Super Mario Bros. 2 and now you can download it for a fraction of the cost in a couple of minutes.
This is hands down the best flash game that I’ve ever played. You get to take your pick between several classic NES characters (Mario, Link, Bill R., Mega Man, etc) and play through Super Mario World. Far from a simply character swap all the different characters play like they do in their own games. It’s fantastic. Hit the link to check it out.
