New Super Mario Bros. U made me feel like I was nine, and that's awesome

Mario and Luigi can always touch the sky when high on shrooms

I am so friggin' happy I got a chance to play me some New Super Mario Bros. U.  I haven't laughed and smiled due to a combination of actually having fun and unbelievable frustration in a long time.  The item reserves that pay homage to Super Mario Bros. 3 and the overworld map that is full of secret exits like Super Mario World offer a great sense of nostalgia, and the GamePad adds a new level of enjoyment when put into the proper hands (and a new level of physical violence in the wrong ones).  I can't wait to try it myself, though I know there will be moments where I will intentionally hinder my friends' progress, because I can be a dick sometimes and it's funny.  I've barely scratched the surface with this adventure, and I'm eager to have some more time with it as soon as possible.  Give it a try if you have got some good pals to play it with.

It's good to be a kid again.

About NakedBigBossone of us since 1:58 PM on 06.09.2012

My name is Arthur Damian. I am 37 years old, and I have been gaming since the NES era. I like the new school AND the old school. Chrono Trigger is the bestest game ever, and Junction is the worstest. I love to write, and I am currently working at CUNY School of Professional Studies, helping students transfer in their credits from other universities. I also love vidja gamez, and right now I'm playing games on the PS5 and Switch, even though I have a huge backlog of games on the Wii, Wii U, and 360 to go through. BLURG. I was an author at Destructoid's sister site, Nintendo Enthusiast, I work for That VideoGame Blog as editor-in-chief, AND I'm a staff writer at The Escapist.
