I’m a regular listener of the Larry Miller podcast and one of the most popular topics on his show last year was about how he would go around the house and pick up the little leftover soap chips, which he would then weld-together with water to make a new bar of soap. I believe his record was five soap bars, but I haven’t been able to catch the show in a few months, so he might be up to more by now.
Do you remember Super Mario Crossover? It’s the entire original Super Mario Bros. video game that can be played with characters like Samus from Metroid, Mega Man and several other hugely popular game characters. What makes the game really cool, is that each character has their own abilities, instead of simply playing like Mario or Luigi would.
That game was a ton of fun, and the updated version is now officially available for everyone to play. It’s still based on the original Super Mario Bros. but with a ton of upgrades. There are more playable characters, better graphics and you can play the game on visual styles such as the NES, SNES and Gameboy.
To be honest, I thought this was going to be based on Super Mario Bros. 2, which I think is the best Super Mario game of them all, so I was really excited to play it and then a little disappointed to find out it was still based on the first game in the series. With all the new features, my disappointment didn’t last long. This game kicks ass.
