Bowser has quite the rhythmic gymnastics routine

No, we aren't having a mass fever dream -- that really is Bowser dancing with his rhythmic gymnastics clubs for a minute and a half. And gracefully, I might add. Look at the Koopa go! This is the first time in a long time that I haven't sh...   read

Even Babymetal is teaming up with Mario Maker

The metal idol group Babymetal is coming to Super Mario Maker as a character costume, which is something I should probably find strange, but don't -- not after the pigeon, Barbara the Bat, and Chitoge Kirisaki. Nintendo has gone to unexpec...   read

Square's Super Mario RPG pitch: Mario with a sword on horseback

I regretfully have not played Super Mario RPG, but I have a feeling it wouldn't be so revered as a classic had Nintendo followed Square's initial pitch, which included Mario riding a horse, wearing a cape, and holding a sword. It'd just be...   read

Okay, this fan-made Mario Football mock-up is great

I used to be fairly into sports video games back when they tended to be more straightforward, arcade-style experiences -- stuff the whole family could easily learn to play and love. Heck, to this day, I still regularly revisit titles from t...   read

Relive the infamous 'Mario Party Glove' and other incidents during the series' history

Mario Party might be accused of producing the same concepts over and over again, but it has a storied and interesting history to it. Most older gamers will likely remember the "glove" incident, where the Nintendo 64 controller was so t...   read

There's a new Super Mario Bros. world record speedrun

Video game masterpiece Super Mario Bros. is more than 20 years old [correction: 30 years, math is hard], but the very best attempts at playing it have all been fairly recent. The past two years have brought about many new world r...   read

You probably haven't seen this Super Mario Bros. 3 animation

For each episode of The Simpsons I can recite from memory, I can still watch that show and stumble upon a dusty, hitherto undiscovered or unappreciated (by me) gag. Even if it's just a sign in the background. That show was real good for a l...   read

Nintendo still coy about exactly what makes them delete a Super Mario Maker level

As you may have heard, Nintendo has been deleting select Super Mario Maker stages lately, including a series of levels from popular streamers. The problem is, they don't really explain why this is happening, and these bans can com...   read

Would you spend over 12 hours trying to beat a Mario level?

Starfy is coming to Super Mario Maker

Starfy is a lesser-known character from the Nintendo universe, but that might be because he's not wholly owned by Nintendo. In fact, he's co-owned by Tose, creators of the Game & Watch franchise, as the Legend of Starfy games were only ...   read

Review: Mini Mario & Friends: amiibo Challenge

Nintendo backed itself into a corner with amiibo in terms of software. Now that the things are wildly popular, it's at a crossroads. Does it gate substantial content behind them and piss off casual fans who don't want to buy toys? Or only r...   read

Nintendo is attempting to trademark the Mario coin sound

It's funny when you hear a clear-cut video game noise out in public. Like when the gas station register belts out a sound effect from Sonic the Hedgehog, or when the Mario coin noise plays. Well, Nintendo is looking to take the latter ...   read

This Wario-centric history video brings back some good memories

Wario games are legendary. They sum up Nintendo's goofier side, and many projects, which wouldn't have otherwise gotten the greenlight, were made possible because of Wario's involvement. He's one of my favorite characters that the publisher...   read
