The currency of choice in the Mushroom Kingdom is the Gold Coin. But here in the real world, it’s pretty rare that you’ll come across coins made out of anything besides nickel, zinc, copper, or if you’re really lucky, silver.
The video games of old, like Super Mario Bros. and Tetris had some of the best music ever. But would we even recognize them if the music were played backwards? Listen and find out.
Musician Stemage created a digital album featuring several memorable NES game themes performed in reverse.
Is it just me, or every time you see anything with Mario jumping up to smack a box with a coin inside, do you hear the “ding” sound the video game makes inside your head? That sound will surely be stuck in your head all the time with this official Mario desktop calendar.
The calendar has little cubes with numbers, days of the week, and months on them.
LEGO and Nintendo are two of geekdom’s favorite things. Here they come together in an awesome build that replicates one of Super Mario Bros.’ most iconic villains – the nasty piranha plant. But this is no ordinary LEGO model – this piranha plant actually works.
It was built by Jason over at JK Brickworks, and has a mechanism inside which not only moves the plant up and down from its pipe, but it opens its mighty jaws as it emerges from its green pipe.
Do you love Super Mario Bros.? Then check out this very cool Super Mario Bros. level 1-1 stop motion animation that takes place entirely in a notebook. The animation was hand drawn by artist and YouTuber Kisaragi Hutae 6 and it really looks amazing.
Most of the elements like Mario, goombas, blocks, etc were made as cutouts, so he didn’t drive himself too crazy while making the video.
I have a love-hate relationship with Super Mario Bros. I really like the game, and played it a lot back in the day on my NES. I also died a lot and remain utterly convinced to this day that the game cheated.
Fans of video games might not recognize the name Charles Martinet, but you have heard his voice if you ever played a game with Mario in it, as Charles has been the voice of the character since back in the early 1990s.
One of my favorite movies of all time is Léon: The Professional. Not only was it the big screen debut of Natalie Portman, but she played a complete badass in the film, which she starred in at age 12, but it was helmed by the wonderfully over-the-top French director Luc Besson.
If you’ve ever wondered what playing Super Mario Bros. is like when high on drugs, look no further. This video of Jelly Mario Bros. shows you firsthand. It’s basically the first level of the 8-bit Nintendo classic, reprogrammed by Twitter user @schteppe with elastic physics.
True Nintendo fans in the US have a special treat coming. Out of all of the things that the company did to mark the 30th anniversary of Super Mario Bros., there was one item that you couldn’t usually get your hands on unless you lived in Japan – The Super Mario Bros.
Nintendo recently revealed that it’s giving Hollywood another chance to get Super Mario right with a full-length animated feature from Illumination Entertainment. It’s gotta be better than that first movie right? The bar is definitely set very low.
Coffee and video games don’t generally mix. After all, reaching down from your controller in the middle of a game to grab a sip usually results in a nasty mouth burn or hot coffee spilled all over the place.
Halloween just ended, so that can only mean one thing: Thanksg… Christmas decorations! And if you’re going to have a Christmas tree this year, let it be a geeky one. These Mario ornaments from Hallmark should do the trick just fine.
Part of the 2017 Hallmark Keepsake Ornament collection, you can choose from a tiny Mario punching a question block for a gold coin, or Yoshi stomping about on a brick wall.
