A lot of people know who Mario is. In fact, I think every one knows who he is (at least if they know video games). A lot of people my age like games like Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Halo, but don’t give Mario a chance. I ‘m not saying that all of you hate Mario. In fact, many people don’t. Sure, I mean, it looks like a game that three-year olds would play compared to first-person shooters, but that doesn’t mean that Mario isn’t a strong guy. Now, I’m not saying that you should like Mario, I just think you should give him a chance. So just hear me out.
Mario is extremely fast. In the game, there are enemies called bullet bills (if you didn’t know). They are basically life-size bullets with faces that shoot out of a cannon. Now when you play Mario Bros., they are very slow compared to Mario’s running speed, making him faster than the speed of sound. Now, if Mario is faster than a bullet, then I can probably conclude that they have slowed the game down enough so that you could see Mario move. Imagine at its original speed! Also, compared to first-person shooter characters, who have a limited run, Mario can infinitely run in his game (it’s best not to though because you could lose control).
Mario is super powerful. His shoes have gone through so much weariness just by running through the fields of Mushroom Kingdom. But he also crush live beings and enemies into mush, which wears it even more. He also has an ability to turn weaknesses into strengths. For example, he eats random red fungi, which could possibly poison you, that makes him grow. He also eats green fungi, which is even more harmful, to gain extra lives. In some games, Mario can even swing his arch nemesis, Bowser, who is a giant, fire breathing turtle, by the tail and chuck him at least 10 yards away from him.
That proves that Mario can be just as strong, or stronger, than any first-person shooter character.
Superheroes, we loved them as kids, then didn’t care, and now love them again. To those people who aren’t fans of them(I’m not pointing fingers at anyone), they often hate on the ones who seem the least powerful. I’m here to disprove your thoughts! Maybe.
3. Spider Man – I didn’t put him on this list because he is underrated, I just think that not everyone has realized his true potential. He’s not just a guy in a suit who can shoot webs, when he got bit by a radioactive spider, he also found much better abilities. He has this thing called the Spider (or Spidey) Sense which allows him to react to things like bullets or arrows extremely fast. He can also move more than 200 miles per hour if he wants to. I guess you would like to be him for Halloween now, huh?
2 . Aquaman – Not everyone has heard of Aquaman, but from the reviews I have heard about him, he is considered the joke of the superheroes. I mean before, he used to have a bad costume, and not a very cool personality. The modern Aquaman though, he is cool enough to be called a superhero. He is the king of the sea (I thought that was Poseidon…), and he holds a mighty trident. He has an army of sea soldiers on sea horses in which he can summon whenever there is danger. Tell me that’s not a hero.
1. Batman – Of course you saw this coming. He is probably the most underrated of all superheroes. Many will argue that Batman has no superpowers, and therefore has no right to be called a superhero. I disagree! This guy has the most advanced technology in his generation, which I think qualifies for superpowers. He has done so much body building, that he looks a pro wrestler or a miniature version of The Hulk. Super enough for me! He has incredible memory, he has mastered over 70 martial arts and hasn’t forgotten them, tell me that can be found in the real world! He may not be a superhero to you, but if he existed, I can guarantee he would beat up someone in a supernatural way.
Windows – Windows 7 is much better than 8. Windows 8 seems like an attempt to still stay in competition with Apple and Android. A lot of people I know hate the new Windows 8 phones, and I am not a fan of it too. Also, did you know that Bill Gates doesn’t even do any work. He just sits at home watching TV and boom, 3 billion dollars. He should know that his new OS is sucky, and do something about it.
Warning: I do not want to offend anyone with this post, this is my opinion.
Technology is an advancement of lifestyles. I remember when technology companies were innovative, coming up with revolutionary things. Well now some of them aren’t as good as they used to be. Let me tell you why.
Nintendo – There was a time, about a decade or two, when there were amazing Mario games. New ideas came here and there, everyone was happy. But I guess Nintendo just lost it all, and now they’re making sequels. The last original game came out 2 years ago, Super Mario 3-D Land. Let’s face it, it looks more like a mixture of Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario Galaxy 2. There’s even a sequel to that! Watch the trailer below. That makes the last original game Mario Galaxy, which came out 6 years ago! Redeem yourself, Nintendo!
Apple – Innovation, the word that represents, or should I say, used to represent the company. Instead of making a completely different product, they make a few changes at a time, taking forever to make the big change. The phone names are just so unoriginal. Really, 5C, 5S, 5? Here’s an idea, try making names for the phones that are more than just numbers and letters. I think the last innovate thing that Apple made was the iPhone 5C, and that just looks like they mixed an iPhone 5 with a 3GS. The only reason that Apple has a lot of sales is because it is somewhat easy to work with, and a lot of people get under popularity or because they trust the brand.

The first time I heard of IOS 7 was 2 months ago. I was in India, visiting my family. I was reading my uncle’s newspaper, and heard about it. They said that it was going to have a 3-D perception and a whole different look. Well I guess that was a lie, because I recently saw photos of the IOS, and it isn’t 3-D or much different. It just has a slimmer look. The newspaper also said that it would be available to all apple devices. That’s a lie too, because my sister saw the Apple website say that it was only available to the newer devices like the iPod touch 5, iPhones 5,5S,5C, and maybe 4S, and iPads 2,3, mini, and 4. I don’t know if I should trust this software, so please comment and tell me if it’s good. Thanks for reading.
