I dusted off the nintendo to play some mario 3 tonight. Well, I didn’t exactly dust it off as I am not sure I have enough cleaning devices for that currently… but I did pull it out of it’s corner.
I can’t really call it an epic fail considering that I’ve never actually beat a mario game, or any nintendo game for that matter (despite owning one long past it’s prime), but I was really thinking that tonight was the night where everything would change.
Maybe it was a new sense of resolve, or the fact that I had help, but I really thought “this game can’t be that hard”. Well, it beat me again.
I have to admit though, this is the first time I ever played anything higher than world 3. When it comes to video games I have a bit of a attention disorder. I’ve played the first world probably 80,000 times – yet always seem to stop after that… and with out the ability to save I am doomed.
Maybe I will look up some sort of strategy guide online, that seems like cheating though.
I will stick to my plan of playing the first world over and over and see if I ever win.
