eBay endorses $200 scalped gold Mario amiibo pre-order

[Update: Seconds after posting, someone bought it. What are the cool kids saying these days? "Shaking my head"?] After starting my morning off with a cup of iced tea, I noticed a nonchalant tweet by eBay in regards to the gol...

Why the Super Mario movie is an underappreciated masterpiece

[Ed. note: El Great Burcho published this on February 2007. It's one of our Golden favorites.] No, I'm not being ironic, or corny, or funny. Neither am I drunk, stoned, nor under the influence of outside forces requiring me t...

This gold Mario amiibo looks to be a Wallyworld exclusive

What do you do if you're a die-hard amiibo fiend and you hate Walmart? Well, what if you hate Walmart so much you boycott it? Time to throw away those morals and standards because it looks like your favorite box store might be getting an exclusive amiibo -- a golden Mario. Thanks to this picture snapped by a fan, the signage says it all: Only at Walmart. Your move, hippies.

Nintendo predicted the amiibo shortage 11 years ago

A lot of folks were surprised at last fall's amiibo launch, and how scarce some of the figures were. They shouldn't have been; Nintendo gave them a heads-up almost 11 years ago. The intro for the Game Boy Advance's Mario vs. Donkey Kong shows even the famed ape unable to get his hands on these elusive collectibles. Damn you, Mario Toy Company! This has been your intention all along!

Rejoice, amiibo fans who may have missed out on Rosalina! It looks like Nintendo's Japanese Mario Party 10 landing site may have just confirmed another run of the figure. Going on a tip from a reader, it appears as if th...

I might actually drink canned coffee if it had Mario characters on top of it

I've only had canned coffee a few times in my life, notably during big industry trade shows when I needed a quick boost of energy. The experience...wasn't great. But I'd probably enjoy it more if Mario characters were ad...

New PBS Digital show Space Time! asks what planet Super Mario World takes place on

I always enjoy PBS Digital's Game/Show as a source for smart commentary on the culture surrounding games. The whole videogame thing must be good for views, because the first episode of newest show Space Time! is all abo...

This Shadow of the Colossus and Mario mashup is very cool

Artist Jason Lupas has posted a few updates on his Tumblr recently that are decidedly videogame related, and they're pretty awesome. They're both homages to Shadow of the Colossus, one of which features a Mario themed ma...

Want the (non-metal) Super Mario amiibo? GameStop bundle pre-orders up
