New Super Mario Bros.
Nintendo DS
I had some friends visit from “The Big City” recently, and when they weren’t eating or getting drunk, they were hanging out in my living room playing this game. At first I didn’t get it—you’re on vacation, why are you just chilling and playing Mario? Then I took a look and it all became clear. When you are blessed with a new classic-style Mario game (on dual screens), the best thing to do is pack up, catch a flight to Boresville and forget all about work, school, bills and basic personal hygiene until Bowser’s ass hits the flames.
