Mario Takes the Money

What gives, Mario? The cover for this Japanese Mario game shows the little hero giving up Princess Peach to a prince (who could well be a relative of hers, considering they look alike)! But Mario seems happy, as he has a bag of coins that would break a camel’s back. Link

For the Atari’s 35th Birthday, the Top 10 Atari Games Ever

I don’t always feel old, but when I do it’s because of posts like this one. The Atari 2600 — that boxy little guy that changed the way an entire generation defined the word “play” — is 35 years old this week. There are no words. For the under-25 set/Martian cave-dwellers, the Atari 2600 debuted in [...]

I Now Pronounce You Plumber & Wife

The great thing about this Mario wedding cake is that it has so many details from so many of the different games. I love that even Rainbow Road has a place here. Link Via That’s Nerdalicious

Mario Goes Berserk

(YouTube Link) Apparently all the stress and strain of fixing pipes, jumping over barrels and saving princesses has gotten to poor Mario- he found a battle axe and he’s about to lose his mind! Will he ever find his way back to the Mushroom Kingdom? Do pixelated critters regenerate when they’re chopped into little square bits? And [...]

The Glove and Boots Wedding Proposal

(YouTube link) We’ve had a couple of Glove and Boots videos here before. This one is a bit different, as the puppets Fafa and Mario were recruited to produce a personal marriage proposal. How could any woman resist an engagement ring that sings …along with a gorilla? -via The Daily What

Super Mario Bros. Möbius Strip

With a 3D printer, Joaquin Baldwin was able to make a Möbius strip showing the first level of Super Mario Bros. It doesn’t matter which castle the Princess is in. Mario will be trapped in an unending hell, forever moving forward but getting nowhere. Link -via Nerdcore

Amanda Visell’s Blocky New Art Toy Series

If you like your toys wooden, limited edition and hand painted then you’re going to love Amanda Visell’s new wooden figure series Wood Idol. Many of the brightest stars from childhood are present and accounted for, like Mario, the Mad Hatter, Voltron, Gizmo and E.T., all ready to sit around looking delightfully square in their fancy [...]

Barbie Power Loader

Barbie and Ken aren’t together anymore, so it’s time to remove Ken’s stuff from the apartment. This power loader by Instructables member Mario Caicedo Langer will expedite the process. As you can see from the video at the link, it’s actually powered and ready for action. Link -via Super Punch

Defending The Mushroom Kingdom In Mario Warfare

(YouTube Link) There’s battle a-brewin’ in the Mushroom Kingdom, and only Special Forces agents Mario and Luigi can crush the evil dictator Koopa and save countless mushroom headed lives. It’s Mario Warfare by production company Beat Down Boogie, a full length live action spoof of the Super Mario Bros. franchise that’s been in the works for quite [...]

That’s One Heck of a Power Plant

How do you make a piranha plant into a power plant? By painting one of the Mario enemies on a power box, of course. This puntastic graffiti is almost good enough to be done by Hanksy. Link Via The Daily What
