I can't wait for the 8th, it seems so far away. :( On the subject of covers, I'd love to see a hand-drawn cover every month. With Oli Frey, Wil Overton, Shigeru Miyamoto, Susumu Matsushita, and l...

Re:

Super Mario Bros. on the FC/NES. The first brown hued one. Sure the scrolling may still be smooth today, but it's incredibly boring especially when compared to the sequels like SMB3, which is still enjoyable.
