Nintendo got on a bit of a retro-kick during the late Wii and early Wii U era, releasing many games that went back to their roots and the New Super Mario Bros. games were the most obvious candidates of that. New Super Mario Bros. 2 was the third of four NSMB titles, and is perhaps the game that gets the most flak for this type of mindset. It doesn’t change the formula very much at all and adds millions and millions of coins to compensate for it. There’s also another story of Bowser kidnapping the princess somewhere in there, but Mario might be too busy collecting coins to notice it. Oh well, at least it’s another Mario game, right?

This was pretty much the last New Super Mario Bros. game I needed to cover before being done with the series. I might go back to the Wii U and cover New Super Luigi U at some point, but as far as the main four, this was really just a matter of taking care of loose ends. I’m admittedly looking more forward to getting to the Mario 3D games, which can only mean that Super Mario 3D Land should be on the horizon at some point soon! Until then though, hope you enjoy another Mario playthrough. With all my teasing aside, I do think this is a very good playthrough and I did have a bit of fun going back to this game because I didn’t remember much of it.

It’s time for another party day at Peach’s Castle, but once again, before the group can even taste the delicious cake in the oven, Bowser attacks and takes over Peach’s Castle, tossing our heroes to the other side of the world. It’s a whole new world for our heroes to explore and this time the adventure will feature all new power-ups and game mechanics. I hope you guys are ready to fly through the newest installment of the New Super Mario Bros. series!

Figuring out what my next project was going to be was kind of difficult. I wanted to cover a game that was more modernized, yet recognizable, and I didn’t have very many choices. I ended up staring at my Nintendo Wii U system for awhile before I realized that the system hadn’t gotten much play time from me, despite having a very good launch game. I put two and two together and decided to cover my very first Nintendo Wii U game (in both inside and outside of LP projects), New Super Mario Bros. U!

The move from 2D Mario gaming to 3D was a huge step for the portly plumber, but what happens when he steps back to his roots? Princess Peach has once again been kidnapped by Bowser and now Mario must begin one of the biggest chases of his life in this all new 2D platforming adventure on the Nintendo DS.

This was my very first Nintendo DS project, and although I knew there would be complications with my first DS Let’s Play, let’s just say I wasn’t expecting the specific complications that I endured, namely another computer crash that postponed the project for a few weeks. Despite this issue, I had a lot of fun with the game and it was a successful start for Nintendo DS games being covered on channel SlimKirby!

Princess Peach is having another one of her classic get-togethers, but when Bowser’s kids jump out of the cake, it’s no fun and games anymore. Mario gets his gear together and gives chase to those havoc-causing Koopa Kids, likely to once again find Bowser at the other end of the fishing line.

This game was actually pretty new at the time of me doing this project, but it was a Mario game, which naturally means I am a sucker for classic Mario platforming. Although one of the major draws of this game is the fact that you can participate in live 4-Player co-op, I set out to show that even the one-player has a beauty of its own! This was also another project that was affected by the computer crash of 2010, as this project was planned to release much earlier, but these problems were on the verge of being fixed when this project started coming around!
