Are speed runs still cool or are people, like, so not impressed with that stuff anymore? I still think anyone that can pull off a feat like beating a game in some sort of super speed is pretty impressive, but I suppose with computers and technologies anything can be faked these days. Well, I choose to believe, damn it! I have to believe -- it's all I have.

Thus I choose to believe that some crazy guy beat Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels in just eight minutes and 35 seconds. If you haven't played The Lost Levels they are basically the Japanese Super Mario Bros. 2 and were never released until the SNES revamp in the U.S. because they were thought to be far too difficult. So that makes beating them really quickly highly impressive. Even more impressive is the fact that they did it with Luigi. Think how much faster they would have gone if the older, better brother had been involved.I suppose Mario would not have been able to make a lot of those jumps though since they played differently in The Lost Levels. Documentary footage of the events is below.

What if VHS-style tip guides still existed?

There was something about the VHS days that brought out the goofiest tips and promotional videos from game makers. Especially Nintendo. The most memorable one that comes to mind is their Star Fox SNES promo that had Sony and...more

Review: Yoshi's New Island

The original Yoshi's Island is one of my favorite Mario games of all time. I don't know if it's the numerous and remarkably unique boss battles or the whimsical charm of throwing strategically bounced eggs, but it r...more
