How The Mighty Have Fallen...

Does anybody remember waiting with baited breath for Super Mario Bros. 3 to come out? When we would argue about whether the Atari or the NES was the better gaming system? When the Princess told you she was in another castle in Bowser's fortress?

Nintendo has fallen far since the first invasion of the Mushroom Kingdom was repelled by two Italian plumbers from Brooklyn. Now they are going to lose their underdog status and become another group of IP-grabbing buggers, trying to inflict the woes of IT at large on the gaming market.

The poet Elliot was wrong. This is the way the world ends.

Current Mood: disappointed disappointed
Current Music: Nintendo - Super Mario Bros. Theme

Install Windows, problem solved!

This would still be the optimal solution, methinks.

Hey, I wait on baited breath for my NES to work. Start shaking I guess.
