Got to get you into my life

They're finally selling real-life Mario Karts


But only for kids
Feb 25
To be a kid again. Or, a 70-pound adult. That's what it'll take to enjoy the Super Mario Kart Ride-On Vehicle, available in March at Toys"R"Us for $199.99. The kart has working pedals, can go in reverse, and there are tires for on-and off-road use. Most important of all, this thing plays sounds from Mario Kart. Hot damn! I want to see videos of some kids' years being made. [Via Tiny Cartridge] read

Or...Karp-Karp!
Oct 24
Remember when Nintendo began as a hanafuda card manufacturer? I don't, because I wasn't alive in 1889, but maybe there are some Highlanders among you fine folk and I'd be remiss if I didn't encourage you to decapitate each ot... read
