Game Review

It's been a while since I've played Super Mario World 2 on my SNES (which, by the way, still works). However, I do have fond memories of experiencing a Mario game through Yoshi's eyes.

Random Video of Awesome: Yoshi's Island Trick Will Make You Say "Oh My!"

As they say, you learn something new every day. Here is a game which has been out for nearly fifteen years, with a trick in a video that has been around for over three.

20 Years of Super Mario Bros. 3

I knew the anniversary of Super Mario Bros. 3 was coming-- Nintendo Power mentioned it on their preview page for the next issue. I just didn't realize that the anniversary would come so soon-- today, that is. Fortunately, GoNintendo and EJ Massa (I have that shirt, by the way) have served up a helpful reminder. How best to celebrate? That would be a good question. The obvious answer would be to grab one of its many releases (NES, Super NES as part of Super Mario All-Stars, Super Mario Advance 4 on Game Boy Advance, or even a Wii Virtual Console download) and play, play, play. Of course, that doesn't lend itself very well to a website, and it's short notice for a good retrospective, so instead, here are some videos to help trigger nostalgia. First up, here is how many people first saw the game-- not on their television screen, but on a movie screen in 1989's The Wizard: Perhaps the one and only time "Mario" and "Armageddon" will ever be associated.
