These custom Super Mario and Zelda themed Roomba covers are awesome and adorable. It’s like the games coming alive in your living room, while your place is simultaneously getting cleaned. How cool is that?
Why can’t they create original games like Super Mario Bros. today that have enduring and adorable characters? I’m starting to think we may never get such games again. But hey, at least we still have the classic games and tons of cool merchandise to go along with them.
Now that Super Mario 3D Land is out, the dust on my Nintendo 3DS has finally been wiped off, and I’m actually playing a decent game on the otherwise unexciting handheld. One thing that hasn’t changed – or in fact has actually gotten more irritating – is those damned Koopa shells bouncing around at your feet and tripping you up.
When driving down the road, you never stop to think that a Koopa shell could slam into you and knock you off course, but it might be time to start worrying about this possibility. Why? Because Turtle Shell robots are now having real life races.
Pixel artist Jude Buffum is back with some new stuff: he’s put together some handy images that tell you which parts of your favorite Nintendo 8-bit characters you’ll enjoy eating the most. Naturally, he stays away from the heroes and only presents the ones you’d really like to butcher, like the Koopas and Yoshi.
Children are full of questions. If you open one up you’ll see that they’re made of nothing but drool and questions. Questions like: “Why do we have to eat?”, or “So I’m a poop factory?”, or “What would Bill or Lance do if they were trapped in the world of Tetris?”
These tiny little crocheted Mario and Koopa Troopa figures are just dying for a home on your desktop.
Handmade by EnemyAirship (who also gave us the awesome Racoon Mario rug and Question Mark Block ottoman), these miniature Mario and Koopa Troopa are perfect for anyone with a fondness for the Super Mario Bros.
These pixelated cufflinks feature the dreaded goombas of Super Mario Bros. lore.
Etsy crafter pixelparty makes them from shrink plastic (like ShrinkyDinks?) and silver-tone hardware. He hilariously notes that “…if mario doesn’t get his princess (who seems to be castle hopping, maybe she’s the player and mario is getting played) well then he’ll never be a player.
