Green Raccoon Tail

Postby CRBWildcat » Mon May 19, 2014 12:39 pm

About three or four weeks ago, I walked over to a friend's house to drop off an old Toy Story book for his kids. He asked me to come in---the wind was blowing majorly hard outside---and I didn't want to at first; I've never liked imposing on other people, and I told him as much.

Then I looked up at his television and saw that he was in the middle of a game of Super Mario Bros. 2 when I'd arrived, and I changed my mind awful quick. :)

The first three SMB games have long held some of the greatest memories of my life, and I was able to make some more both then and yesterday. I paid my friend another visit, and we were able to sit down and play a 2-player game of SMB 3. It took about... two and a half, maybe three hours to finish (would've taken longer, but we decided to skip World 7 via warp whistle). Too, we both found secrets in the game that we'd either forgotten about or hadn't known before (he knew where some hidden 1-ups were, for instance). I'd forgotten how much fun playing video games with someone could be.

My oldest memory, in fact, is related to the first game. Back when I was around 3 or 4, the family went to another family's house for a barbecue. While everyone was busy talking and having a good time, I snuck inside their house and went straight to where I knew this little old black-and-white TV was kept. I wasn't able to play it for long, sadly; they found me right when I started World 1-2.

Nostalgia, kids. Look forward to it. :mrgreen:

Oh yeah, seriously miss not having anyone nearby any longer. Still, internet allows me to run some games with people.

Just such a pity that a lot of fun games never made it to PC...

Splitscreen primitive head to head fighterplane playtime (music with various still pics from the game):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8WYgMvc0t0 doesn´t look like much? too much Nintendo? Definitely not, the wolf and the chicken you can play with plays very differently and the bundle of upgrades you run into are quite varied in how they´re useful(or sometimes NOT).

Moonstone was a bit too heavy on playtime for multiplayer games but still awesome fun:

Alieen breed, SWIV, Supercars, Dogs of War, Lotus 1&2, IK+, Bubble Bobble...

Does this mean you'll be getting the VC versions of SMB 1-3 for your 2DS? :)

I don't have time to watch it all before I go back to work, but I checked part of it out and it looks rather neat.

I have 2 and 3 already for the VC, sure. I still have the NES Classics cartridge for SMB 1, so I doubt I'll be getting the VC version anytime soon.
