I’ve been watching the Marathon for a while now, so yeah, I’m a bit tired, but still high-spirited.
Super Mario Marathon 2 is all about raising money for the Child’s Play Charity organization. What is the Child’s Play organization? Here’s a brief overview from the site itself:
Since 2003, we’ve set up and organized Child’s Play, a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games in our network of over 60 hospitals worldwide. In five short years, you as a community have answered the call and come together to raise millions of dollars.
So what exactly is the Mario Marathon? Well, its a live streaming broadcast of 3 people playing Super Mario games in a pretermined order, nonstop for a whole weekend. I was a bit late in promoting this event, which I admit is the first time I hear about the Mario marathon. But anyhow, hopefully this will get people to watch the live broadcast for the little hours that remain of the Marathon. If you’ve yet to see the Super Mario Marathon 2, don’t miss out! Hurry, and if you are willing to help children in hospitals all over, please do Donate to Child’s Play org. Link can be found on the Mario Marathon Website.
Duon can be considered one of the hardest Bosses in the game. It is also one of the best to control. Duon has one of the largest movesets for all boss characters. Cluster Bomb/Missile Spam FTW!
Hopefully by now many of you are aware of what Nintendo introduced at GDC this past February. If not, hang on to your pants (and wallet), as wi-fi will no longer be an ultimately free service. Nintendo will be starting their first “Pay and Play” online project with Sega’s upcoming “Samba de Amigo“, a maraca dancing game that resembles something like “Dance Revolution”… with your hands. As fun as the trailer seems for this game, it will also be the first to implement a “pay to play” service. What you will need to pay for is still unclear, but I can reassure you that Wi-fi will no longer be the free service we all had fun with. Games that will support the “Pay to Play” service will contain the traditional “Wi-fi” logo (in red) along with the words “pay-to-play” underneath. Purchasing whatever service is provided by “pay and play” is still a mystery, but you will be using Wii Points respectively.
