But I was old school Mario. I tried to play Super Mario 64 and got nauseous with the new 3D technology. I was also a teenager, much more interested in dating than playing video games. I missed the whole N64 and Gamecube phases. So when we got our Nintendo Wii, I was ecstatic that I could download my original Super Mario Brothers. I even was able to do the Turtle Tap again....check out the blog. What was even greater was their new Virtual Console release of Super Mario Brothers: The Lost Levels.
Well, Toys 'R' Us had a great deal on this new Wii game, Super Mario Galaxy. If you bought the game, you received a $25 TRU gift card. Not a bad deal at all. So I went and got my Super Mario Galaxy game, along with my $25 gift card. Then I went and got the new High School Musical Sing It game. I wanted to check out the Super Mario Galaxy and see how to play it. I am now addicted. And the stupid Wii keeps a time log of how long you play each game. I kid you not....I played for 7 hours yesterday!!!! Not a solid 7 hours, but on and off (okay, mostly on) throughout the day. I guess that would explain my sore thumb. And I almost got busted when my oldest daughter got home from school. I can't let them see it since it's for their Christmas present!!! So if you haven't tried out the game, it is WAY fun and easy to learn. You can play with 2 people where player 1 is the main player and player 2 is a helper. Great excuse for me to play with my kids!
Tonight, we're "testing" the High School Musical game. And don't worry....I already know all the words.
