If you haven't already, it's time to head directly over to Newgrounds and play Super Mario Bros. Crossover. Right now.
Some beautiful bastard sacrificed a year of his life to create what most of were content to dream about: the opportunity to blow motherf#@kng Lakitu out of the sky with the spread gun from Contra.
Play Nintendo's 8-bit masterpiece as Samus, Bill R. (Contra), Megaman, Link, or Simon Belmont. Or you can play as the original Mario, which I don't quite understand. I would rather have seen Pit from Kid Icarus in his place. Everything else is damn near perfect. More screenshots after the screw attack.
