Tobias Wüstefeld is a designer who loves himself some Mario. In fact, he loves that colorful series so much he decided he’d show his affection crafting Mario themed levels and slapping them on a couple of real animal skulls. These two beauties were made for the We Love 8 Bit show in Vienna, Austria earlier this month. If you’re bummed you missed them, don’t be, because all you need to do is read on for lots of big, pretty pictures. READ MORE
When I was young and my parents took me to the supermarket, I’d always immediately head for the fruit and veggies section so I could steal all the twist-ties I could safely tuck into my pockets. I’d then take them back home so I could create little people and have them fight to the death. Seriously. I’d have the little twist-tie men duke it out. The winner would live to fight another day, and the loser would be skinned alive — which I’d accomplish by peeling the green plastic off the wire. Now, I do this with people.
Joking! Anyway, there’s this guy, let’s call him Jake. Jake makes incredible figures out of twist-ties. I don’t know if he pits them against each other, but what I do know is every one of them puts my warriors to shame. Check them out after the break. READ MORE
It’s Valentine’s Day, and you know what that means. It means it’s finally time to take the plunge and ask out that lovely individual you’ve been stalking lately. It also justifies slipping love letters under the bathroom door while they’re showering or sliding one under their pillow while they sleep. It’s not creepy if it’s Valentine’s Day, I always say. After you’re done with that you should read this list I’ve compiled of men who went to through hell — both literally and figuratively — in order to save the woman they love.
I suggest you grab that special someone in your life, snuggle up real close and enjoy this list. I guarantee it will lead to whatever it is two adults do when they like each other a lot. (I zoned out during that “birds and the bees” chat, something about pollinating flowers and storks). READ MORE
Forgive me if you’ve seen these already, but I haven’t, and they tickled me in the best way possible when I stumbled across them earlier today. These are 8-bit Fatalities created by Flickr user StevenLefcourt that merge old school games like Super Mario and Pac-Man with the hyper-violent finishing kills of the infamous Mortal Kombat franchise. They’re hilarious and definitely worth a look if you haven’t seen them yet. READ MORE
This is without a doubt the scariest thing I’ve seen all day, and that’s saying something after catching my first glimpse of Jersey Shore and that monstrosity they call a Snooki. The following video is a terrifying glimpse into a Silent Hill inspired Otherworld reality where Miyamoto is a twisted form of his usually happy self and Mario’s been turned into a house servant. If your innocent mind can handle it, I dare you to click the play button.
Is this real? Please tell me it’s real! It’s not? Well, damn. If it was I’d play the shit out this game then when I was done I’d get up, make myself a delicious sandwich, and sit down to play it again. Check out an incredibly well-made trailer for The Brothers Mario below.
There’s an important lesson to be learned here, and that’s to never bring a hammer to a gun fight.READ MORE
