Goddamnit, watch this Paper Mario comparison video, you little puke


1:25 PM on 04.04.2007



Ryan Stevens at GameTrailers really, really wants you to see this video comparison of next week's Super Paper Mario and the original Super Mario Bros. World 1-2. He's furious that -- you know, you haven't seen it. So you better get on it, hit that play button, and watch yourself some comparative footage of the two games and be impressed, both by the compelling style of gameplay as well as the homage to the classic title that started it all. Otherwise, Dad's gonna take the whip to you.

Having finished with that, I'd like to take you behind the scenes for a moment. Linktips sent to Destructoid usually come in one of two varieties: a URL with an attached "lol" thereafter -- that's the bulk of 'em -- or a link with several thousand words explaining the link, which usuallly comes by way of companies and other gaming Web sites.

Ryan Stevens, though, he's the rogue. This morning we received this burning missive from Stevens like a hail of lightning from on high:

Subject: Goddamnit someone should blog about the paper mario/mario bros comparison

I am filled with hubris over this
http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php?type=wmv&id=18303

And lo, the parting of the Seatoid did come to pass, and the video was indeed posted. Take note, kids: if you want your content, linktip, or MySpace profile posted on Destructoid, you have to be angry and full of hubris to get us to pay attention -- or you can just bribe me. Whatever works.

Thanks for the tip, Ryan, but ease it back a bit, yeah? Stress can mess you up, and we'd hate to see this happen to you.

Super Mario 3D World's K'Nex set is fun to put together, but ideal for kids

K'Nex has had Super Mario-themed playsets for a while (including 3D Land), but on September 24, it'll drop a new line on Nintendo fans -- the sets for 3D World, complete with a cat figure! I had the chance to test out the first major kit, which includes a mouse enemy, launcher, and building pieces themed after the first level of the game.more
