It’s early 2019, there aren’t many new games to play. One of the early drops, however, is a re-release of Wii U’s much-maligned New Super Mario Bros. U on Switch. (I'm looking forward to giving it another shot.) While eating lunch last week, I somehow ended up on this wild 18-minute video by YouTube’s Ceave Gaming. Ceave’s goal was to beat New Super Mario Bros. U without pressing right, otherwise known as, you know, one of the defining traits of the foundational platformer. Folks, this is a ride.
