Nintendo released Super Mario World for the Wii Virtual Console this month. I finally broke down and bought it. Although seriously, Yut has a copy (and a working SNES) from back in the day, and CT and I have one too, so it’s not the most sensible thing I’ve ever done. It’s all nostalgia, especially since Super Mario World is my favorite Mario game ever. I say this a lot, so I’m sorry if you’re hearing this for the umpteenth time.
Anyhows, CT and I played that game sooo much; at least 3 months straight one summer. So for once, I am better than Yut at a video game!!! I know!!! It’s shocking! THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE IN THE HISTORY OF OUR RELATIONSHIP!
And the truth is, I’ve always thought CT was better than me at that game. I could never pass Butter Bridge 1, with the stupid sinking platforms — CT always did that level. But today, after hours of playing I got to it and Yut was working on the Vanilla Dome stuff, so I just played it over and over, until I passed it! YES!!! Well it was partially luck, and partially I had to go back to Vanilla Secret 2 (or whatever that level is called) for more lives a couple of times, but you know, the point is, after all this time, I passed that stupid Butter Bridge 1! I know, I am feeling way more achievement than this whole thing warrants. :P
Now I’ve moved well beyond agonizing over whether a game that we sorta have 2 copies of between us is worth $8, and I’m wondering if it’s worth buying the classic controllers for the Wii cos my fingers are getting cramped from holding the GameCube controllers a little weird cos the buttons aren’t in quite the right formation. Gawd Nintendo must be making a killing!
