Mario Memories
Week #6

Good Memories
Lets all face it, The Super Mario Bros have always been there for us.Good or bad memories, in a way they have always been good,all of them. I remember the golden era when everywhere you went was mario. Around the 64 stage Mario and Luigi had somewhat been forgoton, until sm64. During which I was reuited with the bros. But i wanted to hear the characters. So in a vain search for the cartoons and Mario stuff, I came across a small but steadfast growing site of pure magic and fun of long ago when the bros rulled all Koopas, SMBHQ. So in this i raise my hand in salute to ye all wonder-workers of SMBHQ, my best friends--the overall wearing brothers, a mushroom, and a princess. But the greatest thanks of all goes to the one who started it all, Shigeru Myamato.

When I was about four, my brother got the first Nintendo system, and i wasn't very tall, so when I played Super Mario Bros., I had to jump to see the screen.

For as long as I could remember, Mario Bros. 1 through 3 were 100% impossible. In #3, I could get to world 8 after hours of playing and by using the flutes, but the boards after the tanks were undoable. When i bought a SNES from a friend, he gave me SM All-Stars with it. I saved up my items over the weeks and using the save feature, I had plenty of Jugems clouds, P-wings, and Tanooki suits. I played, and using my army of items, I beat Bowser and won the game!!!!! I know it was kind of cheating, but later I beat it the real way. (GO ME!)

I was about...9 years old when I was a SMRPG Freak! In 5 weeks I'm going for the 7th star! Plus Culex's Song is Exellent! I wish his crystals wernt so POWERFUL! One day I beat him, I was so happy! But I lost the groovy music! Well, another great battle was Jinx. He was REALLY HARD and funny! A midget was thrashing Bowser's fat butt in the air! I wish I could fight 'em again!

Weird Memories
I had a glitchy version of Super Mario 64: I was just walking inside the Princess' castle, and as soon as I opened the door, Bowser's silhouette appeared and I lost a life for opening that door!

I won SMW after 6 years (pathetic,isn't it), and I watched the end. I became so happy, I shut everything else in my brain out. I said "... OOOH! I better Game Boy Camera this Kodak moment!". I know... I'm a WEIRDO!

I remember once I was playing my Super Mario Bros. 3 game on Super Mario All-stars. I did something really weird. While the game was on I started to pull the cartrige out of the SNES and all my SMB 3 files were earased! But I got them back.

Bad Memories
I had worked on SM64 every day, and I had gained 110 stars. I had finally got up the courage (I was afraid of utter loss)to try to defeat the last (3rd) Bowser. "I did it! I did it!" I exclamed after winning (everyone looked at me funny). I watched the credits proudly. Then, I viewed Mario's cake. "Let me save, PLEASE!" I whispered. I waited... and waited. Nothing happened, so I figured it automatically saved. I pressed the reset button to view that great number--111 stars. "What?! It didn't save!" I said to myself as I saw 110 stars.

Once in my early days of video game playing, when I wasn't too good at playing games, and didn't yet understand everything, in Wario's Woods, I went to the data clear area and erased everything!! I didn't know what data clear meant then! I wated to break the controller. Oh well, it's all back now.
