About SM128C - Super Mario blog and fan site 1998

Super Mario 128 Central is an independent Super Mario fan site that has been online since August 29, 1998. Originally known as Super Mario 64 Central (SM64C) until 2001, we were one of the biggest and most popular Mario websites online, and but at some point in time we became an 18-wheeler going right off a cliff. In early 2018, we scrapped the archaic look, put a new responsive web design, and turned the website in a blog-style format.

The goal of this website is to be an alternative voice that serves as a niche between the rigid nature of corporate gaming websites and the free-for-all of social media commentary.

SM128C is a Canadian-based website.
