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.

Wario gives Peach a beatdown in the latest Mario Warfare

It's been a long few months, but the latest episode of Mario Warfare has finally been unleashed! The fight to take back the Mushroom Kingdom continues, and this time Mario, Peach, and Donkey Kong have some more challenging foes to contend with. Once again the choreography is top notch, especially for something that's just a web series based on the Super Mario franchise.more

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
