S.M.S.


What does S.M.S. stand for, you ask? Super Mario… Sunshine? Strikers? No, Super Mario Sunday, of course… ‘New Super Mario Bros.’ for the DS will be hitting U.S. shores in a little over a week and I figured it’d be a prime time to post about this awesome looking game.

‘New Super Mario Bros.’ (which I always thought would just be a quick codename title for the previews and not actually be released being called something so un-thought out. I mean c’mon – a random bum on the street who knows nothing about the Mario games could have thought up something better) will be taking Mario back to his 2D roots and will have 2D game play masked in 3D graphics ala Namco’s Klonoa 2 (PS2,2001).

As of today this game has one review. IGN has reviewed it and gave it the incredibly great score of 9.5 out of 10 (one of the IGN editors even went so far as to say it’s the “Greatest thing ever” in the review). I think it’ll be interesting to see what the other sources give it (such as Gamespot, who I think is more credible than most review-sites and usually seems to put more time in reviewing new game releases).

‘New Super Mario Bros.’ will hit American game stores May 15th . Damn, a huge new release and a new version of the DS next month… Nintendo’s really going to be raking in the cash!

Also, check out this special edition Mario Kart-themed DS stylus. Pretty cool looking, eh?

...and when the Wii comes out, expect another SNES style console that DESTROYS everything else...including the PS3. NINTENDO ROX!

There is also a chance to play online bingo and try your luck at the online gambling sites available inc roulette, poker and fruit machines. I've also found another site for **free soccer links**. Hope you find these sites interesting - all the best!
