I was wondering when this one would be covered. Good episode. Love this series.
You could kill Bowser with fireballs?... My whole life has been a lie until this moment. :(
@Sekhemket Just like the cake.

@Sekhemket Begin again.
Whoa whoa whoa, you could actually beat Super Mario Bros? What about that castle that goes on forever until the time runs out? I always assumed that it was supposed to be some sort of statement about the "futility of obsession" or something by the game designers.
@wavelength121 Lol You gotta take the right paths in that castle and you will get to Bowser eventually
yah I never found the princess :P stopped caring about the 20th castle XD
ummmmm back then it was Princess Toadstool. Please get your history right.
@withoutdogma Was it?? Apologies.
Marier received the same bad news.
soft voice,,beautiful girl,,,,and kids show;D^^,,like it
"No...no...Mr Princess no es here. You go to other castle."
Pants on head retarded.
I should go.
I'm pleased that you are showing a much larger percentage of the video with game footage rather than yourself - thank you for dispelling my concerns that these are 'look how pretty I am' videos. Attractive you are; but of course it's games that draw us to this website!
Though I would love to see you getting 'gritty' sitting at a desk actually playing a game; no kind of perverse reasons of course, but more akin to that Irish chap's (forget his name) videos: it makes for a more convincing critic/analyst if we get to see them actually playing games ;)
@willzihang You're talking about Danny and he's awesome.
@willzihang I've never seen anyone play a meme ;P
@willzihang You're more than welcome to catch me playing horror games every Tuesday night (PST) or Wednesday afternoon (AEST) on House of Horrors at twitch.tv/gamespot! Dead Space kicked my ass a bit today, though.
Could/have you do/done one for The Cake is a Lie?
@moviequest14 Here you are: http://au.gamespot.com/shows/gamingmeme/?event=the_cake_is_a_lie20120328
Would you kindly send me that awesome t-shirt?
@SpookyJack I'm quite attached to it.
@tempertress That's ok, you can come too.
I pictured this image:
Mario, a 24 year old Italian able to fix a minor leak under the sink no problem, is a fan of Jess's. While enjoying too many mushrooms not sold in stores;) he searches the castles of the UK to see if Jess is perhaps inside. Castle guard, "Sorry mate, maybe she's in another castle?... ... (under his breath)yeah right..."
Kinda creepy, but if that could happen, maybe the idea of Mario isn't too far fetched.
@thefrank86 I like your idea of a more realistic and grim version of Mario.
can't really put my finger on why, but I don't feel this "meme" really stacks up against the others
Nice meme (hateful phrase)...
And LOVE that shirt, ordering now. :P
This meme was a meme before memes even existed. Since I was like 5 my friends and I would say that phrase whenever we failed to find/get something.
Also, anyone else get upset when Mario didn't get all the coins at about :12?
@SlowMotionKarma Yea! why dind't he jump! They were right there!
@Suikogaiden With guest commentator, Anita Sarkeesian!
'Do a barrel roll' is still my fav Nintendo meme.
FU Damn Toad!!!
she is so damn hot! Jess "Miss Australia" McDonnell
Jess, I love you. Also, hilarious meme footage.
After all these years and I finally find that Toad was always giving the finger
fuckoff with the 200% louder ads than the actual show
and why so short..
xD Yep, Good ol Trollin before Trolling was even a word xP
This is a pioneer MeMe! Of course!!!
Jessywoo, Shnookylumps, Angelbear, Light of my Life... erm....nice video. Personally I adore Toad and always picked him in the Mario Kart games simply because i've always been a sucker for the underdog. Toad is under appreciated and definitely needs his own game series, cereal brand and designer underwear range. Make it so Miyamoto!
I really don't think Gamespot (or Jess or whoever produces these videos) really knows what a meme is.
Hi Jess! God darn I'm beautiful and I'm wearing an awesome T-shirt. I couldn't keep that info to myself.
Now that we got that out of the way. Your choice of meme is flawless. It's a classic and everyone knows it.
Congratulations! Job well done and all that.
Here's one I think you might have missed (too lazy to check). The Zerg Rush!
1:16...toad singing + pointing middle finger at you :)
Gosh darn Jess, you are beautiful. That's meme enough for me.
