Between this, the re-run of that Crazy "This is a God test" woman of Wife Swap: Meet Your New Mommy, and the bottle of Heaven Hill my friends and I just picked up, I predict a fine, fine night, indeed. Thank ya, Protocols of the Elders of Awesome. You have made this geek-tastic night even moreso.

I got up to the part about being able to use the Kuribo's Shoe in every level and that's where I just about peed myself.

I prefer Jnes as an emulator.

This is why I bought a joystick for my PC, I just didn't know it then. Thanks for the link!

you know, I missed out on smb3 when it first hit consoles in the states, and so the first time I got to play it was on the gameboy re-release.

I totally didn't realize that they'd beefed up the graphics for the gameboy release, so when I was looking at the screenshots in the article and the guy said the graphics were improved I thought he was joking.

then I looked up original nes smb3 screenshots.

dedicated does not begin to describe this coder. good on him, man. good on him.

If you want to see everything the hack has to offer but don't have the patience to actually play through it, Bisqwit's time attack page has a rapid run-through.

Some things that are awesome about this game:

-fireballs no longer respond to gravity
-new levels make it feel like fifth grade all over again

Some things that are annoying about this game

-backgrounds change after every death (and deaths don't seem to matter, do they?
-new levels make me feel as dumb as a fifth grader. It's frustrating not to know the levels instictively.

I kind of dig the part about the backgrounds progressing through various weather and phases of light and dark. I mean, how come there was never any day and night in the original marios?? But I don't like the snowy weather; this game is hard enough without sliding all over the damn place. And given that there's no limit on extra lives, I just give up whenever a level starts snowy.

This game is quite difficult; it could certainly eat up an entire weekend if I didn't have so many other committments. For the first time, I'm tempted to buy a USB-converted nintendo controller.

OSX emulator - Nestopia

You are outside, on a grassy field. There is a large pipe going into the ground. Exits are west and down.

# inventory

You are wearing a red hat and some overalls.
You are carrying:
A suspicious lack of plumbing equipment
Seven gold coins

Suddenly, a turtle enters!

# look turtle

He is moving towards you quite quickly.

# Jump on turtle

The turtle dies!

Where can I find other games that are compatible with the OSX Nestopia emulator?
