OK, I take it back

I'm pretty sure my eyes glazed over when Super Mario Bros. Crossover first came to my attention. Oh, I could understand why the fan-made creation might appeal to some gamers, but it didn't appeal to me--at all.

Then I saw the following video, which highlights the impending inclusion of Blaster Master's Sophia the 3rd in this (seemingly) ever-evolving title. (He/she/it supposedly will be added to the game later this month.)

If you're as behind the times I am and you have yet to play the fabulous concoction that is Super Mario Bros. Crossover, check it out here.

Oh. My. God. I have never even HEARD of this. And now? I'm thrilled. I know what I'm doing on my day off!

Oh, good -- I'm glad I was able to introduce someone to this game. I thought I was the only one who didn't know about it until now :)

I played through a few stages with Link last night and had a blast. Can't wait to try some of the others this weekend!

This is my new favorite thing. Playing through SMB with the spread gun from Contra is AMAZING!

Bryan Ochalla said...

Oh, that sounds great! I've only played it a bit as Link. I'll have to try the others this weekend.

You know who I'd love to see in it? Pit! Or Kirby!

I was thinking the EXACT same thing as I drifted off to sleep last night!

So far, I've gotten closest to the end with Samus...I made it all the way to Bowser in 8-4 and then died...repeatedly.

Bryan Ochalla said...

Oh, so it can be harder with some of these characters -- or would you have a hard time with Bowser in 8-4 regardless.

I haven't played that far into SMB in a looooooong time, BTW. I'm sure Bowser would smoke me no matter who I use!
