Today in gaming, Happy National Mario Day! Also Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter came out in 2002, and it was just kinda…ehh. How are you going to celebrate National Mario Day Maddie Ricchiuto?
Yeah Jedi Starfighter was a bit of a boring one. As for National Mario Day, I'll end up playing some Super Smash Bros. If I weren't on the road, it'd be time to break out the N64.
