    This is the upcoming Nintendo x Vans 2016 Summer Shoe collection. No word on price yet but they're supposed to be released early this summer and I want those Zelda slip-ons. Slip-ons are great because you don't have to worry about tying laces. Who has time for that? "You ca... / Continue →

    This is a video of Darbian setting the new Super Mario Bros. speedrun record, finishing the game in just 4:57.260 and beating the previous record by only 433 milliseconds. Will somebody make it faster? I dunno, it seems like there is very little room for improvement here. Wi... / Continue →

    This is a video of 'The Greatest Shooter Of All Time' Jerry Miculek highlighting a .45 automatic Glock that was converted to look like a Nintendo Zapper. It's pretty amazing looking. He even plays some real life Duck Hunt with the thing using 8-bit style targets while wearing... / Continue →

    This is the $25 Retro Gaming Shower Curtain available from ThinkGeek. It looks like an oldschool Nintendo cartridge game box. Plus, since it's got a clear window at the top, it puts YOU in the game. I've always wanted to be in my own Nintendo game, but the graphics were neve... / Continue →

    This is the $40 Nintendo Entertainment System backpack available from ThinkGeek (although I also saw Spencer's selling it for $30 and Amazon for $34. Shoot, you might be able to find one at a yardsale for $10 and haggle them down to $5 and throw in an oven mitt you can pretend... / Continue →

    This is a video demo of a beta version of 3DNES, a work-in-progress Nintendo emulator that renders classic NES games in 3-D. It's by no means perfect, but it does look promising. Kind of like the halfway point in a video makeup tutorial. You sort of look like a clown now but... / Continue →

    This is a video created by Youtuber Hat-Loving Gamer imagining a Super Mario Kart race with 101 different video game characters all racing at the same time. Thankfully they're all spread out across the racetrack instead of all bunched up like little kids playing soccer. There... / Continue →

    This is Metroid: The Sky Calls, a Metroid short starring Jessica Chobot as everyone's favorite Galactic bounty hunter, Samus Aran (provided Samus Aran is everybody's favorite Galactic bounty hunter and Boba Fett is out of the running). Remember when you beat the first Metroid ... / Continue →

    This is a video of video game speedrunner Darbian setting a new world record for the fastest any % completion (warps and glitches allowed) of Super Mario Bros. He beat the previous record of 4:57:69 by just hundredths of a second, with a time of 4:57:627. I would be pissed if... / Continue →

    This is a picture of the Super Famicon (Super Nintendo) that Twitter user @UMIHARAKawase has kept plugging in and powered on for the last twenty years so he doesn't lose his progress on the original Umihara Kawase platforming game. The game cartridge actually does have a batt... / Continue →

    This is the Game Boy electric guitar that BitFixGaming admin FIbbef built himself. That way he has something to do while the rest of the band is arguing over who gets to wear the leather pants at the next concert, and who has to wear denim. Me? The only kind of pant I wear t... / Continue →

    This is a short video made to promote tomorrow's release of Super Mario Maker in which Shigeru Miyamoto discusses some of the Super Mario franchise's myths. Although he doesn't actually do too much discussing, he mostly just shakes or nods his head, which is exactly how I like... / Continue →

    This is a live-action battle between Princess Peach and Princess Zelda. Who wins? SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER: The one who you'd expect to win. "Zelda?" Of course Zelda, was there ever any question? If you would have bet on Peach you have zero business ever going to Vegas, not... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Samuraiguitarist (previously: a Bluegrass Game Of Thrones cover) using various instruments to perform all the music and sound effects for Super Mario 3. Hey -- everybody needs a hobby. You know what I like to do in my spare time? Spare time, LOL, I'm w... / Continue →

    This is a video (although really just audio) of the N64 classic GoldenEye 007's soundtrack entirely decompressed. It sounds worlds different than it does in-game. What do you say you come over this weekend and we play some? "I call Oddjob." Of course you do. Tell me -- did... / Continue →

    This is a video of the hacked Legend of Zelda game that Imgurian jadowdl used to propose to his girlfriend (links to her telling of the story). He altered the text and animation after beating Ganon, as well as gave Zelda bunny ears (because his girlfriend loves bunnies), and t... / Continue →

    This is a video of a bunch of modern teens trying to play 2-player Contra for the NES. On a scale from 1 to 10, they are all god-awful at it. Was I that bad when the game came out? Is there really that steep a learning curve? I feel like my brother and I rocked that shit. ... / Continue →

    This is the Nintendo-64 modded by Belgian artist Vadu Amka with a beautiful, albeit subtle, Ocarina of Time theme. Don't get me wrong, I'd still totally give my left nut for it. I mean, if I hadn't already lost it in a Rollerblading accident in high school. The ancestral ge... / Continue →
