The Great Retro Quiz! .30: Super Mario Kart

This is it, folks: the season finale of The Great Retro Quiz! Don’t fret, though; it will be back for an even better “Season 2” after a short break. I just need to tweak a few things -- maybe hire twenty-five beautiful women to hold some metal cases -- and, I don’t know, install a Plinko board or something. Yeah, the Great Retro Quiz! definitely needs a Plinko board.

In the meantime, start studying up on things like Final Fantasy VI, Super Mario Bros. 3, and Super Metroid. These games may be making an appearance come next season (hint hint).

To celebrate the grand finale and the strangely coincidental release of Mario Kart Wii, this week’s quiz is all the original Super Mario Kart for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. How well do you remember it?

Just leave your answers in your comments and check my community blog tomorrow (5/1) for the dramatic results.

Start your mental engines and ... good luck! The Great Retro Quiz! misses you already!

Nintendo predicted the amiibo shortage 11 years ago

A lot of folks were surprised at last fall's amiibo launch, and how scarce some of the figures were. They shouldn't have been; Nintendo gave them a heads-up almost 11 years ago. The intro for the Game Boy Advance's Mario vs. Donkey Kong shows even the famed ape unable to get his hands on these elusive collectibles. Damn you, Mario Toy Company! This has been your intention all along!more
