HERE’S THE THING EPISODE 16: WHY DO WE LOVE SUPER MARIO?

If our weekly Ask Chris column isn’t enough of definitive comic book (and pro wrestling) opinions for you, good news: ComicsAlliance is proud to present Here’s The Thing, a series of videos where you can join our own extremely opinionated senior writer, Chris Sims, as he dives into comics history to explain why you’re wrong and he’s right.

This week, Chris takes a look at one of his favorite characters: Mario, the high-jumping, kart racing, princess-rescuing plumber from Nintendo’s enduringly popular Super Mario Bros. games and spinoffs! He loves that guy, and odds are pretty good that you do too. But why? And how much of a character does Mario really have?

Show Notes:

  • Pick up the SH Figuarts Mario to adorn your desk, too.
  • Sadly, most Mario comics are currently out of print, but you can usually find the Nintendo Comics System lurking in quarter boxes everywhere.
  • All war is class war, and all class war is Genesis vs. SNES. This is a fact.

For the most part, video games could be considered rather wholesome entertainment. Then there are the shining few that are so vulgar, so raunchy, so dirrty, you’re afraid to let people know you’ve played them. You might even feel a little gross and sweaty afterwards. The Continue? gang (Paul, Nick and Josh) and their special guests get dirtier than Xtina when discussing the dirtiest video games. Tune in and let us know if you agree.

As one of the most successful video game franchises of all time, Call of Duty has made an incredible impact on the 5x5 crew. For the first time ever, all five hosts share their stories of being stuck in the trenches with nothing but virtual guns to keep them safe. The Continue? guys (Paul, Nick and Josh) and their special guests bring the noise. Tune in and let us know if you agree.

Hey, you guys, you just helped us hit a huge milestone. Here’s a little thank you note for all your continued support. We couldn’t do this without you. Well we could, but then who would read and watch our things. But really, thank you.

Turn down for what?

Urban legends have been part of our culture for generations, but with the advent of the internet, more wild speculation about what is and isn’t real has reached insane heights of pandemonium. Are there ghosts inside video game cartridges? Can you resurrect virtual loved ones? What the government doesn’t want you to know about who shot J.R. The Continue? gang (Paul, Nick and Josh) and their special guests delve deep into the great gaming myths of our time. Tune in and let us know if you agree.

Once in a generation, there comes a rapper turned actor so amazing, he (or she) rewrites the book on what quality voice over work really is. From the frontlines of war, to the gritty combat taking place on inner city streets, one must have incredible range to deliver the emotion and gravitas necessary to transcend mediums, genres and time. The Continue? guys (Paul, Nick and Josh) and their special guests discuss the finer points of the career of the one, the only, Ice-T. Tune in and let us know if you agree.

As Darwin would point out, we’ve evolved so far, that smacking the alarm clock is in our DNA. Sometimes though, you gotta get up to get down. There is no snooze alarm for saving the world. The Continue? guys (Paul, Nick and Josh) and their special guests lay the smackdown on the laziest sleepyheads turned heroes in video games. Tune in and let us know if you agree.

We’ve all been there. The lights turned down low. The sound on the television cranked up. ‘Resident Evil’ playing on the screen. Then suddenly, the words “Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson” pop up and you scream like a little girl. The Continue? guys (Paul, Nick and Josh) and their special guests recount the creepiest moments in the history of the greatest survival horror franchise in history. Tune in and let us know if you agree.

Everyone gets sick. Except Luke. He’s a machine that overpowers sickness with hate. But most video game characters aren’t so lucky. Viruses in video games are absolutely bonkers and would probably devastate real world immune systems. You know, if they weren’t completely made up and fictional. The Continue? guys (Paul, Nick and Josh) and their special guests play doctor, and try to find a prescription for the best video game viruses. Tune in and let us know if you agree.
