Well, it took me all day, but I have now completed Mario! What an excellent game! I used to play this when I was younger on my NES, and it is just as good now as it was then. Its my birthday next month so I am buying myself another NES so I can play the original Mario games and of course Duck Hunt!!!! Mario Galaxy comes out on the Wii in March so I am waiting until then to buy a Wii and Mario in a bundle.... Can't wait!
