For my fiance’s birthday/Christmas present, I bought him an old-school Super Nintendo off of MercadoLibre.com (the Mexican version of E-Bay!), complete with Street Fighter II, Aladdin, Super Mario World, and Super Mario Kart, plus a crazy-hard game called Prince of Persia (movie coming out soon) that my parents had gotten him. Needless to say, I’m psyched. I couldn’t wait to kick some butt on Super Mario Kart!!! (My sisters and I are pretty awesome.)
Suki the Mexican Poodle was psyched as well, despite her lack of opposable thumbs, which unfortunately made it impossible for her to beat me in the first Bowser’s Castle level of Mario Kart.
Just look at Birthday Boy’s excitement! Apparently, he can still play Super Mario World while blindfolded. Ok, we haven’t tried it blindfolded, but he does have craaaazy muscle memory from childhood! He knows when those troopas are gonna pop up.
