Not that I would have to explain why I'm all geared up to play Super Mario Bros. 3
at this ungodly hour (I do run a retro podcast
for fuck's sake). I, for some reason, feel compelled to tell you why.
So far, today has been a good day, and keeping with the good day motif -- and considering that I'm somewhat hammered -- I want to play a game that is, in my belief, one of the greatest games ever made. So as the night, and my sobriety, dwindles down; I want to finish the evening by enjoying a game that, to me, is nothing more than 8-bt poetry in motion.
Keep in mind, that I love me some Super Mario World
like you like pancakes, but there is just something about the Tanooki suit that gets me going -- and coming -- back to SMB3. Over and over again.
