I thought this was going to be "Half-Life 2: Episode 2/Portal/Team Fortress 2" related... which reminds me I have to stop off somewhere and pick it up today (along with a new graphics card to play it all). What's the deal with Mario/Sonic?

Never mind, just read through the link you posted.

Surly your mistaken are you talking about Company of Heores Oppessing Fronts because that came out on Sep 25 ....

For fifteen years people have wanted to see Mario and Sonic
battle it out to the death in a video game. And now it has finally
happened... and Mario will kick Sonic's ass.

I'd even put the Crytek engine one up than this, plus N64 SSB was the ultimate.
But then again, beauty is in the eyes of the wii-holder...

I thought pong or tetris was pretty exciting, and gaming's most historic moment. I mean the dawn of games is pretty historic - sitting around with the family trying to get the white blob across the blue background by jumping on the brown blobs, and the device to play these awesome games was only in the thousands!

Either way, this game looks exciting, for you :) Unless he's got a 'piece' I don't wanna play :p

Also, I don't get why sonic and mario would fight? Aren't they both the good guys?

Text mode games are older than even brown and black blobs.

On the other hand, space invaders (I think it was) on an oscillator is even older than that. ;)

The "historicity" of Mario vs. Sonic is simple: these two characters were representative of the console wars of the late 80s and early 90s. Now they appear together in a game. I think it's pretty historic.
