My Quest is Over

At 6:31 p.m. EDT on Monday, March 26, 2007, twenty-one years after he first picked up a Nintendo controller, Jason F.C. Clarke defeated Super Mario Bros.

    Not to be picky, but that should be Eastern Daylight Time….congratulations on the defeat of Mario!!!!

  2. No no, pickiness is good—I want to get this right for posterity.

    Failing to beat SMB has been a monkey on my back for two decades…but no more. Levels 8-1 through 8-4 were my Thermopylae…

  3. Yes – But what is this I see about a New Quest? In my opinion, you’re only half done.

  4. The new quest is the same game in “Hard Mode.” I feel comfortable passing on that.

    Jason, you’ve just saved the princess after 21 years of captivity! What are you going to do now?

  6. I’m going to Super Mario World!

    Actually, I’d prefer to go to SMB2 or 3, but the VC hasn’t offered those yet.

  7. The princess is in another castle.
