Vooks community member Excite posted these photos of the “History of Super Mario Bros.” caravan, which stopped at Parramatta in New South Wales, Australia.

Duke Nukem Forever Rumors: Now on It’S 13th Season
I think it’s safe to say that every year since 1997 there’s at least one customary rumor or update about Duke Nukem Forever. First it was out of anticipation but nowadays it’s probably become tradition. I guess that time of the year has arrived.
