Flashback Thursday

Ok from here on out I am going to be doing a segment called Flashback Thursdays and once a week it will feature a classic game that us old timers will remember fondly. This week Super Mario Brothers 3.
Super Mario Bros. 3 according to most gamers is probably the best in the series hands down... and I am one of those gamers. I can remember very well the movie "The Wizard" which featured this game at a tournament seeing who could get the farthest fastest, it also featured the power glove, which is Nintendo's biggest flop ever but I digress.
"I make this sh@# look good"
I remember very fondly working my way through SMB3 trying desperately to reach the secret whistles to get past the annoying levels in the game, anyone remember the Desert level.... why are the Desert/Fire levels the most annoying in every game??

Actually beating this game was a feat I remember the last level getting past the airships took many retries before we were able to take down Koopa. All in all it was a fun game and one to remember fondly on the NES and if you are lucky enough to have a Wii I believe you can download and play it again.

First post

Well here it is my first post on my new blog.

It has been some time since I tried out blogging and I usually end up giving it up because no one really comes to read them anyway. However I do find it nice to write down my thoughts or the events of the day as they unfold so there is some record of my mind (sometimes it is so sketchy I have trouble keeping up).

So a quick intro, and the writing of this post I am 24 years old, I am a Husband to my lovely wife Lacey, and a Father to my son Logan. My hobby is gaming... yes I have other hobbies but the on I explore the most is gaming, I have been gaming for as long as I can remember starting off with the old Atari, working my way up to the NES and so on and so forth. One memory that still sticks with me today was going down the street to a BBQ joint that had arcade machines and pumping quarter after quarter into the Mario Bros. game and Pacman.. man that takes me back.

So using this blog I will post my daily adventures not only with gaming but with life itself, so take a seat, grab some popcorn, and sit back and enjoy. Until my next post Later Days!
