New Super Mario Bros for the Wii (less than a month away!)
The last time I ever felt this excited during the holidays was during Christmas in 1990. I was 5 and the one thing I felt like I’d die without was the gift my mom got me. I had to search high and low for this picture at my mother’s house, but I knew once I found it – you’d understand why I decided to post.
Best Christmas Ever!
I haven’t felt this excited for a ‘toy’ in such a long time, that I almost don’t know how to control myself. It’s a different dynamic though because now I don’t need to have someone buy it for me.
Ever since I played the New (& Improved) Super Mario Bros game at e3 in June, I’ve been waiting for this damn 4th quarter to come around, in hopes that it would be released way before Christmas. There is a lot of hype around the New Super Mario Bros because of the fact that it’s back in 2D, has the ability to let 4 people play simultaneously, it’s release date was a mystery (Nov. 15th – is the official date according to my sources) and because of its difficulty!
Although I tried it out, it was really only for less than 5 minutes (if that), so I can’t comment on the levels of difficulty, but I’ve read a couple of articles that actually have me nervous about how hard this game will be. If you want to see what I mean look at what they said here.
It’s going to be so hard, so damn hard, that the computer will actually help you out when you get stuck – can you imagine that?
I’m not sure how easy it’ll be to get accustomed to playing to the new remotes so I made sure to buy myself a classic one this weekend…don’t want to end up with a broken LCD – hell to the no!
The price of the Wii going down is icing on the cake for Super Mario lovers, because unlike many people out there, (before Saturday that is) I still had not purchased a Wii, and because of the ‘sale’ – I did.
Christmas was fun growing up – especially when they are all like the Christmas of 1990.
Although I won’t stay up until midnight this year, in hopes of opening my game, I know have this thing called life to thank. Thanks life for allowing me to grow up and have a job. Yes – I would much rather have someone else buy all this stuff for, but since I can, why the heck not!
This is the crazy madness/prep work for the new game…I’m sooooooo psyched! (& so getting fit!)
