Did anyone see Nintendo completely botch the launch of Mario Bros on the VC on Facebook? They showed a picture of SUPER Mario Bros. I wonder if that will bite them somehow (people saying they bought the wrong game by mistake).
It didn't, and I want to try it. I'm on the fourth stage in Pilotwings (which I couldn't do before because I never did figure out the controls for skydiving until yesterday) and enjoying it, but I can't help but wonder if I'd enjoy 64 even more.
