It’s considered to be one of the most perfectly designed video game levels of all time because it introduces players to new gameplay concepts without an instruction manual. And if you have fond memories of Super Mario Bros.’ Level 1-1 (who doesn’t?) you can now immortalize it on your wall.
La Summer Games Done Quick acaba de cerrar su edición de 2016 tras recaudar 1,3 millones de dólares para la caridad. Se trata de una maratón de speedrun solidaria con varias modalidades de juego. La que nos ocupa, una carrera asistida por un robot, se conoce como tool-assisted speedrun o TAS.

Y es que marcó un antes y un después llegó con un procesador de 64 bits (del que tomaba su nombre) que le permitía con un potencial gráfico impresionante para la época. Este mes cumple 20 años de haber nacido, y lo celebramos…
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…
Much to the chagrin of the person you sleep next to every night, this wonderful Super Mario Bros.-inspired Question Block lamp makes that classic video game ‘ping’ sound every time you tap it on and off. No actual coins are ejected, but we’re waiting for confirmation on whether or not the occasional mushroom pops out.
Adding to a long list of pop culture collaborations, which has yielded fare like Star Wars- and Disney-themed kicks, Vans is now working with Nintendo on a new line of branded sneakers featuring characters and power-ups from classic 8-bit NES games, including Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, and even Duck Hunt.
Para ser un juego relativamente simple, Super Mario Bros está lleno de anécdotas y secretos curiosos que aún hoy siguen sorprendiendo. Uno de ellos es una animación de Super Mario 3 que Nintendo creó para un momento tan específico que probablemente nunca la hayas visto.
The fastest anybody has ever beaten the original Super Mario Bros. is with a time of 4:57.427. The man who currently holds that record isn’t happy with it, though. He knows he can do it faster.
Available starting in June for $9, the 8-bit version of Mario a lot of us grew up with has been turned into a keychain-friendly multi-tool. Although Mario is best known as a plumber, this tool is more designed for opening bottles, tightening screws, and tearing open Fedex boxes, instead of unclogging sinks.
Meet two parkour superstars who bring the Mario brothers to life in this spellbinding display of ninja-like gymnastics. As you can see, no CGI Koopa Troopa is safe. The video was made by the folks at Dark Pixel, a YouTube channel that released a similar video three years ago. This sequel is just as awesome as the first
I think overly decorative cakes are silly—like cool, here’s a cake that looks like the Great Barrier Reef, enjoy your edible starfish—but this Super Mario Bros. cake is wonderful because it recreates the entire first level of the video game in perfect, delicious detail. It’s a stop motion animation in cake form. Every…
One of gaming’s better rumors is each koopaling in Super Mario Bros. 3 was named after a celebrity. One of the seven is Lemmy, allegedly inspired by Lemmy Kilmister, founder of the rock band Motörhead. Kilmister died of cancer yesterday. To learn more, I asked the person who named the koopalings.

On September 13, 1985, Nintendo released Super Mario Bros. for the Family Computer (Famicom) in Japan. My first encounter with the heroic plumber came a year later at a local bar.
The only thing more depressing than playing Solitaire by yourself is not playing it on a computer. Unless the deck of cards you’re using features levels from four classic Super Mario games.
Do you remember the first time a Thwomp unexpectedly fell from the sky to end your life while playing Super Mario Bros.? Of course you do, it was as traumatizing as it was frustrating. But it also gave you a greater appreciation for Thwomps as an enemy to be feared, and a better understanding of why this cushion would…
Despite an absolutely tiny and almost unreadable LED display used for the actual clock, there's nothing not to love about this Super Mario Bros. alarm clock that NCSX is soon selling for just $24. Available in either a Mario or Luigi sprite version, the question block cubes on the base are used to set the time and the…
Well. This is one of the weirdest things we've heard in a long time.
I'm a horrible person who always laughs when people fail in YouTube videos. This collection of fails made me laugh even harder because it's been perfectly edited to splice in Mario and Luigi from Nintendo as the evil invisible force who cause all these screw ups in real life.
