Low Latency No. 3: Times change, people change

Hard times have fallen on both Mario and Sonic as they try to make sense of what's popular in today's video game environment.

Jeff:
I first got the idea for a comic like this when I was in a GameStop store and saw a kid who couldn't have been older than 10 begging his mother for Modern Warfare 3. It got me thinking about the games I was desperate to have when I was that age, and I immediately remembered the 3-hour wild goose chase I sent my parents on in search of Super Mario Bros. 3.

Low Latency is a weekly comic on CNET's Crave blog written by CNET editor and podcast host Jeff Bakalar and illustrated by Blake Stevenson. Be sure to check Crave every Thursday at 8 a.m. PT for new panels!
