Damn. Those are marbles? When I was a kid marbles were boring swirly colored little orbs. These things are works of art that look so awesome that they should be in some combination of a 3D Mario and a Metroid game.
…but because I’m fine with my body’s aerodynamics as it is, I think I’ll just admire these plugs from a distance. No actually it’s because my tolerance for pain is so low – in fact I’m crying right now because of the terrible pain induced by typing.
Most bathrooms are pretty boring, sterile places, designed for the utility of brushing your teeth, washing your face, taking a bath, and using the toilet. But that doesn’t mean that a bathroom can’t be a fun place too – like this awesome video game themed bathroom from Technabob reader Gregory Pinzone.
I’ve had a love-hate relationship with anything Super Mario related for as long as the game has been around. I spent more hours than I care to recall sitting around playing Super Mario Bros. growing up with my friends.
The Mushroom Kingdom turns into the Egg Kingdom with these awesome Super Mario Bros. Easter eggs. These might be the most awesome Easter eggs ever. Not sure where Peach is, or Bowser for that matter, but I’d love to see these in my Easter basket.
We saw a nicely designed Super Mario Bros. question block lamp before, but it was operated via a plain old switch. This question block lamp 1-ups that with its touch sensitive button, so you can do just like Mario does and bump it to switch the light on and off.
Kivadeno, an Etsy user, has created some awesome Super Mario Bros. Custom Vans. I know what you’re all thinking… you probably think that your nondescript white van with no windows serves you well enough in driving around for your window cleaning business, and that a Super Mario Bros.
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.
It’s a good thing I don’t have to deal with people gifting me holiday pullovers. When I’m old and doing nothing but gaming all day, I hope this Mario-inspired design by Tim Shumate is still around and available as a sweater.
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.
Why is it that every wedding I get invited to seems to involve long, drawn-out, hyper-religious ceremonies and readings of old poetry? Somehow I manage to miss out on all the awesome geek weddings, like this Super Mario Bros.-themed
An awesome cap featuring an embroidery of the iconic question mark block from Super Mario Bros. Wear it and be weary of your gamer friends’ jokes about punching your head to make coins or power-ups come out.
I’ve actually never thought of combining the characters from Super Mario Bros. with the ones from Street Fighter, but for some strange reason, they do seem appealing. The only thing that’s missing is that either they could be made out of large pixels or strangely muscular cartoon drawings that are animated in low fps.
What would happen if the cylinder-headed green Prince dropped in for a visit in the Mushroom Kingdom with his rolling Katamari? For starters, I’d imagine clearing World 1-1 certainly would go a bit faster than usual.
World 1-1 in Super Mario Bros. has to be the most recognizable starting level in video game history. It’s a great level too, from a gameplay standpoint. It has several layers – it serves as a tutorial, but also teaches more advanced tricks and even rewards the persistent (or lucky) player with its secrets.
