Mario speedwagon

i'm no conspiracy theorist, but "The Irate Gamer" is really on to something. this is a real vindication for anyone who ever wondered--as i did--why the NES game Super Mario Bros. 2 was such a letdown in light of the original. i laughed out loud about seven times watching this, but it's actually a really cogent argument. and check out the amazing solution he comes up with at the end...



sorry for such a frivolous post, but i was actually really impressed with what an entertaining short this dude has put together.

I find this as puzzling as your pref for superbad over knocked up! Mario 2 is my favorite Mario, totally trippy, cool gameplay, more unusual settings, etc! and I think this guy's argument SUCKS! I will say the stuff about the secret predecessor for Mario 2 is fascinating, and the Game Boy Advance Mario 2 shit makes me want to buy the Game Boy Advance
