Casual Cowards 1 – Super Mario Bros. 2

Episode IV: A new Mario.

We remember when you could actually buy a new NES cartridge and the excitement of Nintendo announcing Super Mario Bros. 2.  After four long years we’d found every warp, secret area, and exploit in the Mushroom Kingdom. After four long years we would finally have the next chapter in the Mario canon.  We could not wait until our return to the Mushroom Kingdom to wreck house!!!  Mario 2 hit, we fired it up and did we get a hearkening back to our nostalgia?

NO!!!

We found ourselves unceremoniously dropped out of a floating door into the world of Subcon, trying to figure out why Peach and Toad no longer needed saving.  Greeted by old familiar faces but introduced to all new game mechanics, enemies and elements that would become staples of the series.  While this was a departure from the game that we had become familiar with (in that it was a re-skinning of Doki Doki Panic), we loved it and it has become one of our favorite games to date.   Now, 25 years later, you can listen to us absolutely ruin it.  Welcome to the Casual Cowards of Gaming’s first episode: Super Mario Bros 2.
