The perennial video game classic Super Mario Bros. turns 30 years old this week. With it comes Nintendo’s release of Super Mario Maker, a game which allows anyone to create their own Super Mario stages. As my own means to join the festivities, I shall dedicate a good deal of this site to Mario-based reviews, blogs, top 5/10 lists, and other such things for the remainder of September (though it’s not as though this site is lacking in Mario-based content).
Of course, I will also post non-Mario themed material as well, should I feel the need. But hopefully I can crank out some good blogging material worthy of gaming’s most famous mustache.
In preparation of Super Mario Maker, I’ve been replaying what are probably the series’ most beloved entries with Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World. So I’ll probably be reviewing these all-time greats soon (expect plenty of gushing). And once I start creating Mario Maker stages, I’ll probably share them here, maybe even in YouTube video form! Maybe I’ll even review other people’s levels! That’s a feature that I can see continuing well past September. I’ll try to whip up some other good stuff as well.
Anyway, a bit of rambling on my part. Let’s get to celebrating thirty freaking years of Super Mario. Let’s-a go!
