Recount the pocket-sized adventures of Mario in Episode 281

Just look at that l'il guy go.

Hello, yes, it's us again, with another podcast about things (1) we love and (2) you love. Portable games! Mario games! Portable Mario games! The whole enchilada, really. 

Note that this isn't a podcast about all portable Mario games. There are too many to talk about in the space of one hour! But don't worry, podcast-downloading friend, because we'll be following up on this episode in early April. You can bet your sweet bippy on that one.

It's weird to me that we've never really tackled these games before: Super Mario Land 1 and 2, Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, and the Super Mario Advance tetralogy. And yet, here we are, almost 14 years since the beginning of Retronauts, finally making it happen.

Accept no color palette substitutes!
