Couch Campus: When New Super Mario Bros. Wii was first announced, it was met with mixed impressions. The screenshots and gameplay we saw made it seem like this was just a port of the DS version, or maybe some short, WiiWare cash-in. Well after some more info leaked, and people found out this 2-D side-scrolling Mario game was going to retail for fifty bucks, many gamers went crazy. Was all this initial hate deserved? Absolutely not, after being so far into the game, I can safely say that this has been one of the most fun times I have had with a platforming game in a long time.
