Bought an old camera a few months back, discovered the previous owner had forgotten a roll of film in there. Got it developed and scanned, and it looks like these pics were taken in the 70s, then forgotten in the desert heat and super degraded. They're vaporwave as fuck.
Playing the game collapses, at least for you, the multitude of possible timelines for Mario into one: He tried to save Pauline and died, and he's dead now. No more Mario games for you. Oh well. On to the first Zelda.
concept: a video series where you play through the history of video games, BUT: to die in the game is instant permadeath for the lead character, i.e. you get hit by a barrel on the first level of Donkey Kong, Mario (and YOU) never even gets to SEE a Goomba.
