    Video: Japanese company shows Super Mario Bros. on Kindle emulator

    We've shown you an N64 emulator running on a hacked iPad just a few days ago, and now it's time to see how Super Mario Bros. would look like on a Kindle. And the short answer is that the 1985 NES game would look awful: it's slow, it's in black and white only, it has no sound, it's buggy (since when can Mario kill Goombas by bumping into them?), and apparently, you can't even control Mario… Read More

    Super Mario Bros, Zelda make top 5 worst sequels list

    Ouch. MSNBC comes out swinging with Super Mario Bros. 2 and Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link making the site’s Top 5 worst video game sequels list. The three other games on the list are Driv3r, Twisted Metal III, and Bomberman: Act Zero. Maybe it’s just me, but I enjoyed Super Mario Bros. 2.

Sure you can easily listen to music without them, but when a bass-heavy song comes on, you sure as hell wish you had one sitting on the floor next to ya. The only thing better than a regular sub has to be a Super Mario Bros. one. This bitchin’ sub cabinet features two original Mario blocks, including the infamous question-mark block. Read More

Seems Ben Kuchera took time out of his day to hook up an NES, two NES clones, and a Wii (Virtual Console) and tested the original Super Mario Bros. game for quality.
