Remember the day when you had your Gamecube? Wasn't that a fun experience? Now you've either moved on to the Wii... or other gaming device. Well yesterday was a very interesting experience for me. Why's that? Well...
Remember the Nintendo Gamecube Broadband Adapter? Nintendo sold this seperatly so that you could hook your Gamecube to the internet. However the only internet enabled game that I remember was Phantasy Star Online. But the Broadband adapter had another use, LAN parties.
I came into my college gameroom the other day to see a group of people attaching Broadband adapters to the school's Gamecubes and attaching them to a router. Curious I went over to see what the comotion was about, seeming I wanted to use one of them for Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life.
The great students decided to hook up all four Gamecubes for one giant Mario Kart: Double Dash LAN Party. When an opportunity like this comes along you do not go, "Well tough, I want to play." Instead the answer is, "Well hell, sign me up."
Let's just say I kicked some serious behind. Our combination, Mario as the driver, Diddy Kong throwing items. There was not one inch of the road that wasn't covered with a banana peel of some kind. Needless to say, Mario Kart LAN Parties are fun.
But then I have to go onto my second topic which made the day really interesting. I live in Baltimore, MD and I commute to college every day. As I was stuck on I-95 (isn't rush hour fun), my sister spotted a van far down the road. But it wasn't just any van, it was a van with Mario on it. That's right, take a look for yourself (I did remove the phone number)
Yup, D&R Mechanical in the Baltimore area has decided to take Mario, give him Luigi's shirt, and slap him on their vans. Isn't this illegal? Someone please tell me that this is. Mario will always remain a plumber not a mechanic, rulling out him being a carpenter, a referee, into sports, illegeal racing, yeah the list could go on.
I just thought this was funny and are awaiting the lawsuit that could come about.
That is all.
