Super Mario All-Stars' re-release on the Wii brings back a flood of fuzzy childhood memories for Bitmob writer Jasmine Rea.
Something positive can mean the world to kids in scary situations.
I own these games a million times, but I still want the Wii collection.
What a great story.
Anyone find it weird that they're releasing this as a boxed product when you can download them all on the virtual console?
But these versions are prettier! The VC versions are the originals.
Yeah, just SNES prettier. That pack was just a ripoff. They didn't even include the definitive version: Super Mario All Stars + Mario World and they made it seem like it was special, but it fact it was just a VC SNES game that could have cost just $10.00. It was Mario's Anniversary, they could have done something cooler and better... the could have done... SOMETHING!, all they did was re-sell Mario All Stars. As a collector, I find it more valuable to have the original versions (which I have on VC) including the original Mario 2. This was just an easy way to sell a $10.00 game on $30-$50.
I don't get it either, I have the cartridge for SNES. Isn't that better than having them on a cheap DVD to begin with... Hopefully they'll eventually reremake them in HD 16:9 or even on the 3DS, that's when they'll have my attention and money.
I own them all on VC and I still bought this box set. I prefer to have a physical copy if possible and sold my SNES collection many years ago so it was a no brainer for me. Plus I got it for $19.99 from Amazon so I am very happy with it.
Super Mario Bros. is my favorite game.
Really touching story -- sort of like how certain records will remind me of particular times in my life.
Really wish they added Super Mario World onto the disc.
Sweet. I guess God of War Collection was my puberty on a disc.
I got it. it is good in any case, but yes, they could have optimized it for the wii. they could have made it widescreen at least. instead its in a square box on the screen. they could have updated the menus to make them cleaner. they could have added mario world and yoshis island.
thanks everyone. you helped make up my mind about getting this. guess ill just stick playin the snes versions.
