    What a lot of people don`t know is that Mario, and the Princess, started out in the Donkey Kong games. Mario was the character you controlled and the Princess was who you rescued.

    OK. Maybe a lot of people is an exaggeration, but a lot of the younger gamers who never played an 8 bit game may not know it.

    "Back in my day, Mario didn`t even have a name! HEY! WHAT ARE YOU KIDS DOING ON MY GAMING SYSTEM!?"

    Not entirely true Rick. Before Mario was Mario, he was known as Jumpman.

    YEEEEEEY NEW ZELDA GAME!!!! I haven`t heard anything about it up until now! That made my day!!!

    I`m glad they are making a new Donkey Kong for the wii that doesn`t involve drums...I didn`t even bother playing that game.
