The other day I had the pleasure of watching my good friend, uber-gamer, and fellow musician Mason Cramer decimate Super Mario Bros. 3. As in completely destroy the previous single life high score record. Now, he did this to support the kickstarter of the upcoming film (which looks hype!), Nintendo Quest.
Of course, this got me to thinking. This is a really cool angle, especially to expand on for the kickstarter of a game- which itself was born from the thrill of highscore record chasing. I'm trying to work it all out, but if you want to participate in a record-breaking weekend(s?), please contact me. I myself had the flame somewhat reignited- so I'll be shooting again for the Super Castlevania IV marathon record (pushing 2M in practice!), and maybe something else.
I'll post more about this as it all coagulates into something more concrete. Until then, I leave you the badassery of one of the best players in the world, beating the dogshit out of one of the greatest games to ever star a stout Italian plumber.
