Sometimes the best humor comes from real life situations and in today’s case, this is about as real life as it gets, except for the Italian plumber, but whatever.
Okay, the comic is actually inspired by “real life” events.
Steve and I worked at Electronics Boutique. He worked in the one in Maplewood Mall in Minnesota, and I worked at the Cherry Creek Mall location in Colorado. We both got Nintendo 64 kiosks with Super Mario 64 as a demo.
Now, when Mario jumps into a world and you select a stage, I am pretty sure that he says “Let’s Go”, but Steve swears up and down that he says “pickle”. Gentle readers, feel free to view the fifty hobillion Super Mario 64 videos on Youtube and decide for yourself.
Steve and I may not agree with what Mario says, but we can agree on this: The Nintendo 64 hardware launch was a human zoo. I’m actually surprised that we made it through the launch with no casualties.
See you all next week.
