    In a move to try to get me to part with my hard earned (technically stolen) money, Nintendo has announced a special edition 3DS XL that looks like an oldschool NES controller. Plus the box it comes in actually looks like a Nintendo console (but who cares because you're going t... / Continue →

    This is a video of the new Super Mario Bros speed run record set by speed-runner Blubbler (which doesn't sound like a very speedy name). It takes him all of 4-minutes and 57.69-seconds to run from the moment the timer appears until hitting the axe behind Bowser in world 8-4. ... / Continue →

    This is a video of game designer Dan "OtherDan" Emmons' analysis of the level design of Super Mario Bros World 1-1 and how perfect it is. WELL WHY DON'T YOU MARRY IT, DAN? I apologize, that was not very mature of me. I'm an adult, and I should act like one. But not if that ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a recently discovered Super Mario Bros glitch that awards infinite 1-ups (although you can only keep 128). Wow, thirty years later and people are still discovering new tricks. Although how anybody discovered this one is beyond me. First you have to beat th... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber Theramin Hero performing the Game of Thrones theme song on his custom built NES keytair. The NES even still functions as a gaming console! Plus it has light-up effects. The whole song kind of sounds like a phone ringing and nobody answering it. T... / Continue →

    Not to be outdone (but still totally outdone) by The Ohio State University's marching band, this is a video of Clemson's marching band performing a tribute to Super Mario Bros. and Zelda. The performance is actually decent+/good-, but the person holding the camera leaves a lit... / Continue →

    This is a chandelier made out of old Nintendo zappers by the folks at online used game/console store JJGames. It's not bad looking. It's maybe not the way I would have arranged the zappers, but I have an eye for shit. GOOD LOOKING SHIT. Still, not bad. Plus I think we can ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Mike Tyson playing Mike Tyson's Punch-Out on the NES for the first time, almost 26 years after its original release. Apparently Mike didn't care to see what the hell he was putting his name on back in the day. It was kind of weird to watch though, because M... / Continue →

    This is the NES controller Konami code tattoo (with 1:1 scale buttons!) that Kevin Pacheco got on his forearm. Presumably as some romantic inspiration for when the internet is out and he's too exhausted to use his imagination. Unfortunately, it actually reads upside-down to K... / Continue →

    Sometimes life hands you lemons, and you can make lemonade. But other times life puts a pillowcase over your head and pummels you with cantaloupes. I hate cantaloupe. Or is it honeydew? My point is the bruises are healing and I'll be back to embarrassing myself later today ... / Continue →

    This is a fancy wooden NES controller coffee table built by the folks at the Bohemian Workbench (who previously built this one). It's made with a bunch of exotic woods, is Wii compatible, comes with a zapper, and costs $7,200. *coughing up blood* That's a lot of money. "Wai... / Continue →

    This is a NES light gun that's been modded by the folks at North Street Labs into a powerful burning 2W laser blaster. It can set things on fire. And fire, as you and I both know, is awesome and quite possibly the best toy ever invented. Thanks, Jesus! "Jesus didn't invent ... / Continue →
