You probably never stop to think about just how nightmarish the Mushroom Kingdom is while playing any of the Super Mario games. But this real-life version of Super Mario Maker really puts things into perspective. If this is what a plumber’s life really is like, it’s far more intense than just fixing pipes and…
Remember Super Mario 64, the game that made your childhood, and probably introduced you to 3-D gaming? Well, it's back. And you don't need to go digging around in the attic to play it.
Giant ballpoint pens are a staple of most tourist trap gift shops, and rarely worth more than a fleeting glance. But paint one of those pens green like the warp pipes in the Super Mario games and put a tiny Mario and Luigi inside? Suddenly you've got a must-have $20 collectible that even comes with a matching brick…
German researchers have created a version of Nintendo's Super Mario Advance in which the videogame hero can learn and venture through the game according to his "feelings." It's an exciting advance, but the claim that Super Mario is now "self-aware" is grossly overstated.
From artist Ástor Alexander come these video game-inspired pulp covers: Super Mario, The Legend of Zelda, and Metroid. My favorite is the Mario one, mostly because I imagine that it's a series, and every book ends with Mario heading to another castle.
Given the immense popularity of the Super Mario games and their countless spinoffs, you'd have thought that Nintendo would have been eager to get action figures of the characters into kids' hands from day one. But it's only recently that we're finally seeing detailed and suitably articulated Mario figures that do…
Let's say that you've got a spare two grand stuffed in a shoebox under your bed, and you want to put it towards something really useful. No, not paying off a credit card bill, or getting your car serviced — you want to blow that on a Mario Bros lamp made out of Lego.
If you were a kid in the 90s, you probably remember two things: Super Mario, and that song about big butts. Well, here they are, together at last. It was a mashup two decades in the making. [Digg]
If you listened with your eyes closed, you'd think this was just a video of someone playing Super Mario Bros on a vintage Nintendo. But there's not a controller in sight. Just 48 wine glasses and a frying pan. Dan Newbie of YouTube, you're a maestro of the kitchen.
Ever wonder what Super Mario does when he's not running across your screen kicking Koopa Troopas? Filmmaker John Huffnagle shows us what everyone's favorite plumber might do if left alone in your house. Long story short: Don't let Mario out of your sight.
Listen to this young girl playing her sheng, a Chinese instrument invented thousands of years ago. The woodwind may be ancient, but the sound is pure 1980s nostalgia—it's the Super Mario Brothers theme, right down to the sounds of Mario collecting coins and mushrooms. Amazing!
There is no way my parents could have known what a world of pain they were dropping me in by simply giving me the name Mario. It was 1984, and Mario was my dad's name. THEY COULD NOT HAVE KNOWN WHAT WOULD HAPPEN. But now all the Super Mario/Where's Luigi/ItsAMe/Wario jokes I've ever been the butt of are worth it…
New Era is traditionally known for its hats featuring logos of professional sports teams. But starting in Japan the company is introducing a Super Mario Bros. line featuring characters from the well-loved games represented as 8-bit sprites. Everyone from Mario, to Luigi, to Koopa is represented, in caps ranging in…
When you play the Game of Mushroom Kingdoms, you find the princess or you die. Redditor titan413 posted this map of Westeros as a Mario
Bros. World map, including the Boos beyond the Wall, Koopsterly Rock, and Highgarden Castle, home to the Knight of Fire Flowers. So does this mean the Dothraki ride Yoshis?
Imagine you're walking home from a bar tonight. You look up and there's a bright, glowing, 250 square foot Super Mario flying above you. You'd probably think someone had slipped you something, but no, it's just our friend Mark Rober from NASA having some fun.
Don't get us wrong, we're totally blown away by Photobucket user gpinzone's retro gaming-themed bathroom that incorporates elements from Super Mario, Donkey Kong, and Pac-Man. We just can't help but feel they missed a fantastic opportunity to turn the throne into a functional warp pipe that sucks down more than just…
Given they provided Mario with an unending supply of currency during his quests, I'm going to assume this interactive replica of the game's coin blocks do the same in real life, and aren't just limited to authentic sound effects.
