The Weekend Hotness: Falcon Hug

Here’s the Super Mario Bros. theme performed on an oud, as if you haven’t heard the Mario theme enough by now. I wonder if the theme has ever been played on a harp. 

Conrad gets wood, Jim lists some New Year resolutions the industry should do, Dyson shows us what it’s like to be a gaming journalist, BonerQuest is out, and plenty more happened over the weekend.
