Animator Eric Power creates all sorts of fun short movies using tons of cut-out pieces of paper. So it was only appropriate that he use his knife-skills to make a Paper Mario animation, right? Sure seems like a good idea to me.
Remember the All Star Super Mario Bros. Nintendo Chuck Taylors that we were all drooling over? I’m sure you also remember how the only problem with those Chucks are that they won’t be released outside of Japan.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Super Mario, Nintendo is teaming up with Converse to release some snazzy-looking limited-edition high- top sneakers that look mighty fine and totally drool-worthy. Especially for the ultimate Super Mario Bros.
I’m sure a lot of you have seen the SNES cartridge urinal that’s been making the rounds on the Web lately. It’s geeky alright but also quite tasteless, unlike what Destructoid forum member eisley and her boyfriend did to their bathroom – a diorama of Level 2-2 from Super Mario Bros.
