Welcome to the first edition of our Full Access Previews! In each FAP we'll fire up a newly released game (or maybe even preview code of unreleased titles) and walk/talk you through what we're seeing, playing and feeling. Alright, you got us - it's a video preview. But we're calling it FAP anyway.
This episode: Brett, Chris and Henry take you through Nintendo's recent re-re-release of its biggest NES hits, beginning with the industry-changing Super Mario Bros and ending with the star of The Wizard, Super Mario Bros 3. Along the way we discover we've lost all ability to play these games, shamefully dying where our 10-year-old selves would have triumphantly soared to victory. Witness nostalgia melt before your very eyes...
Like this idea? Effing hate it? Let us know in the comments, and don't worry, we're not abandoning text articles, and FAPs won't always be this long - this had four games in one! Think of it as a supplemental TalkRadar...
