Luigi's color came from graphical limitations

While it took Nintendo years to catch on to the fact, gamers have known for a long time that Luigi is the true lord and savior of gaming. He may play second fiddle to his brother, but we all prefer the slim, handsome scaredy cat over the ty...   read

Mario Party Star Rush gets new, non-soup can ripoff box art

Whether it was always a case of it not being "final" boxart or a reaction to the fact that they were caught re-using their own assets, Mario Party Star Rush has new artwork, unveiled at gamescom this week. I sincerely hope this it...   read

This Super Mario watch costs more than my car

When you’re paid in the form of exposure to blog about video games, $27,000 seems like an unfathomable sum of money. For those who do have excessive amounts of disposable income and a somewhat-geeky inclination, however, the Swiss wat...   read

Area man crochets for 800 hours, makes massive Mario blanket

I'm not sure what's more impressive: the blanket, the fact that he put 800 hours of painstaking detail into it, or that this took six and a half years of on-and-off production before it was complete. It measures 2.2 x 1.8 funnymaths, and wa...   read

I love Paper Mario: Color Splash's sense of style

Nintendo has taken the Paper Mario series in a light-adventure direction that, as a fan of the original N64 game and its superb sequel The Thousand-Year Door, I'm not especially enthused about. That said, I have to appreciate the papercraf...   read
