And it’s Monday again. I have a busy week leading to a crazy weekend, so here’s to any sort of downtime I can find! I hope everyone else is doing well!
Rachel and I took a trip to GameStop the other day to pick up a couple of Arceus distribution card for the Legendary Pokemon giveaways for the 20th anniversary. Considering we feel bad just going in there to ask for a free Pokemon code, we tend to look around for a bit and more often than not buy something.
Rachel picked out a puzzle of the Johto region. I picked out Super Mario All-Stars for the Wii.
I remember having this particular game on the Super Nintendo, and I know exactly where the old cartridge is right now. It had four of the original Super Mario games, including Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3, and Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels. It hit me with a lot of nostalgia, and I can’t wait to relax with the games and see how much I remember of them from when I was a kid.
God, I probably sound really old. But, hey, the original SNES game came out in 1993, and I wasn’t able to hold a controller until a few years later!
What about the rest of you? Ever had an impulse buy or have that one video game that just smacks you with nostalgia?
