GameBunker debuts with Mario’s toughest game ever

Three friends were just hanging out, playing some video games, when up and out of the sudden, the apocalypse came. GameBunker chronicles that tale. Join GamesRadar editors Henry Gilbert, Ryan Taljonick, and Lucas Sullivan as they idle away the world’s end in their radiation-proof and game-stocked shelter.

Our first transmission from this grim future is Super Mario Bros. 2. No, not the one you’re thinking of--the other one. The Japan-only sequel skipped the US because it was deemed too difficult. Watch the video below to see if these guys agree. (And subscribe to our YouTube channel where we answer questions about the future and so you don't miss the next episode.)

Expect a new episode of GameBunker each and every Wednesday. And who knows--maybe somewhere along the way, Henry, Ryan, and Lucas will find more survivors… to play games with.

    I loved this video. Keep them coming. Thanks for mentioning this video on the RadioRadar podcast. I'm a little behind on the podcast and now on these videos but that called Binge watching/ Binge listening.

    Even better than radarplays 10/10, and I concur with the notion to see the entire video somewhere regardless of length, It's a an hour or so well wasted

    That was highly enjoyable. Feel free to make longer vids with less editing. I actually want to see all your gameplay. Keep up the great work boys! The internet isn't going to rebuild itself!

    I remember i had SMB deluxe for the gbc and the reward for beating the game a lot of time (or just once i don't remember) was being able to play this. My childhood was systematically broken as a result lol

    I can't wait until the twist that the war that lead to the apocalypse apocalypse was a direct result of Gamesradar giving Halo Reach an 8.

    ughhhh spoilers

    Do you guys sleep in a triple bunk bed, and who gets the top bunk? And great format, although feel free to make them longer or maybe link to an unabridged version in the video for those of us who are ok with sitting there for an hour to see the whole thing. Came for video, stayed for the Henrage.

    I have no idea what the purpose of this video was, but I enjoyed it very much. Very funny!
  • TanookiMan - February 5, 2014 7:05 p.m.

    This was awesome guys! I loved when you got the super high jump over the flag pole the second time through...I was just waiting for you to discover it was a pipe back to world 1. That game is such a biotch.
  • PlainLikeVanilla - February 5, 2014 6:02 p.m.

    So good

    Okay, so I gotta know... Who was the first editor in GR to die? Anyway, pretty fun setup for a new series, and this was pretty enjoyable to watch! loved the slow-mo scenes and in general the banter between you three, keep it coming while your reserve power lasts!
  • Rash86 - February 5, 2014 3:13 p.m.

    Awesome video, please keep them coming. Just a quick question. In the apocalypse, did any of your coworkers resort to cannibalism?
  • R_U_Guys_From_British - February 5, 2014 2:28 p.m.

    Brilliant! Glad to see your gameplay vids make a return!
  • StrayGator - February 5, 2014 2:07 p.m.

    Can't tell if it's the game or the setup/editing, but I enjoyed it way more than "Let's play"s.
  • bko - February 5, 2014 1:40 p.m.

    If the world is dead, where's the electricity needed to power the NES coming from? I bet the world is perfectly fine. This series was founded on a lie!
  • BladedFalcon - February 5, 2014 3:30 p.m.

    Pretty sure there's a lot of energy reactors that have been built underground even now. It's not impossible to think some of these reactors are still functional even if most of the surface level world is destroyed/dead. So maybe these three just lucked out and happened to hide in a bunker connected to one such generator ;)

    Really nice video. Look forward to the next episode. Any video series with Henry G. is a good thing.
  • supergiraffe - February 5, 2014 1:14 p.m.

    I liked the show, looking forward to more. Just a tip, but if you're gonna recommenced an article you wrote in the video, link to it in the article and youtube description.
