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.
Then get clicking on that box. Loudly, if you’re at work. And be sure to keep going past 100 coins.
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.
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.
Kelsey Kronmiller, a graphic designer, designed this amazing LEGO aquarium, which is about 90% done and "entirely coated in "Krylon Fusion," a clear enamel recommended by aquarists to protect fish." I love all the little details. This is such a cute build and totally makes me want to build a Lego aquarium.
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.
There are things in the world that should never happen. Game designer Ethan Levy's "evil" Candy Crush-ized remake of Super Mario Bros. 3 is one of them. He was just kidding when he explained how he'd re-make it. Hopefully.
René Magritte's art is famous for tickling your brain, making you question and helping you dissolve the line of what's real and what matters. You can recognize Magritte's work and influence anywhere but can you imagine it as Super Mario Bros? The artist Racoonda has re-created paintings from Magritte by putting them…
Despite everything you've learned in the Super Mario Bro's video games, stomping and burning are not your only two options in the kitchen. When you need to chop that magic mushroom before wolfing it down, you can hack it up on this Coin Block cutting board.
I'm sure you'll agree that half the charm of playing Super Mario Bros. nowadays is that it's so completely different to realistic games like Fallout 3. To its creator, Shigeru Miyamoto however, it's just plain ol' embarrassing.
This month marks the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros., and in good form Nintendo has painted Wiis red and rereleased Super Mario All Stars in a cherry red boxset. Itsa Mario time!
Genius Japanese violinist Teppei Okada plays the music track and sound effects of Super Mario Bros. Now I'm hoping that the next Nintendo console will include a violinist built-in. After all, they are running out of gimmicks pretty quick. [Nikkovideo]
iRwego, a sort-of-cleverly named iPhone app, may not have a very long lifespan, since it's not approved by Nintendo. But I hope it stays—it soundtracks your life as if it were a Mario game.
Remember the legendary gold cartridges created for the 1990 Nintendo World Championships, which included Super Mario Bros, Rad Race, and Tetris, the "Holy Grail of Gaming Collectibles"? Me neither. Someone does, and he paid $17,500 for it.
On last night's The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien (god, that feels great to type), Conan responded to those who noticed his backdrop's uncanny resemblance to a certain mushroom kingdom.
