There’s a brutal competition being waged in Mario Maker right now, and it’s inspiring people to make the most hellish Mario Maker courses they can think of.
Right now, there’s a course titled “Pit of Panga: P-Break” floating around in Super Mario Maker. Thousands of people have tried this level. Not a single person has beaten it yet.

Retailers took their time, but this is an amazing set of Black Friday gaming deals. Deals will be hyperlinked as they go live.
Today at Target, if you buy a copy of Super Smash Bros. on Wii U, they'll throw in a $15 gift card. That's the best deal we've seen advertised on Smash this holiday season, and likely the best you'll see before the new year. [ Super Smash Bros. + $15 Gift Card]
While a lot of retailers offer basically the same stuff at basically the same prices on Black Friday, Best Buy had quite a few advertised deals that were head and shoulders above the pack, and you can get them right now.
