  2. Super Mario Bros. Parkour Video is as Amazing as You Want it to Be

    Now if they can just learn to keep the hats on...

    Parkour is pretty interesting to watch. I can't run around and do flips and stuff, so seeing other people who can is a nice way to kill a few minutes on the Internet, but oh man I love this Super Mario Bros. parkour video so much. It has guys dressed as Mario and Luigi, and the graphics are as impressive as the parkour. Enjoy.

  3. PBS Game/Show Might Just Be Our New Favorite Thing

    A YouTube show about the relationship between video games and culture? SUBSCRIBED!

    We already love the PBS YouTube shows Idea Channel and Off Book, so it's no surprise we like their new one Game/Show as well. It focuses specifically on the relationship between video games and culture, and it's incredible. The first episode has host Jamin Warren explain the endurance of Mario, Sonic, and Link as characters. We love this. A lot.

  5. These 1-Up Stuffed Mushroom Pizza Rolls Will Give You All The Energy You Need To Rescue The Princess

    And you've settling for Totino's pizza rolls for all these years. For shame!

    Chris-Rachael Oseland, aka Kitchen Overlord, is pretty amazing at taking your favorite geek icons and making them into adorable, delicious treats, particularly breads and stuffed rolls. These 1-Up mushrooms might be her cutest creation yet, and seem surprisingly easy to make considering that they look exactly like the ones that you find in the Mario franchise. I suddenly feel overcome with the desire to host a Nintendo themed party just so I have a valid excuse to try my hand at these.

  6. Thank You, Mario, But You Can’t Afford the Down Payment on the Princess’s Castle

    Suddenly this puts a lot of Bowser's kidnapping attempts into sharp perspective.

    You know, Princess Peach really should be a more active character in the Mario series. After all, according to your favorite fictional castle cost calculators over at Movoto, the lady is ridiculous kinds of loaded. Exactly how loaded is that, you ask? Natalie Griegson estimated just how expensive the castle from Super Mario 64 would actually be in real currency, and yeah, it's a lot. What else would you expect from somebody who seemingly runs an entire kingdom?

  8. We Transcribed the Lyrics to The Root’s Mario Rap on Late Night So You Don’t Have To

    You're welcome, Internet.

    It's Game Week over at Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and since Fallon has basically the best back-up band ever in The Roots, he used their unique talents to answer an audience request for lyrics to the Super Mario Brothers theme song. As you can see, it was a great success -- Tariq had some surprisingly poetical things to say about the Mushroom Kingdom. Check out the video and transcript right here.

  9. Nintendo to Release Free-to-Play Game That’s Somehow Not Mario or Pokémon

    Warioware: Mega Microtransactions?

    A day after they spilled new information on many upcoming titles with their E3 Direct presentation, Nintendo still had something new up their sleeve. CEO Satoru Iwata mentioned in a Q&A with press yesterday that Nintendo have another project in the works -- a free-to-play game. Free-to-play games are all the rage these days, with titles like Team Fortress 2 and League of Legends finding massive success. While Nintendo is not a company that is always keen on capitalizing on current industry trends, this is one it turns out they apparently want to get in on. And really, who wouldn't want a Nintendo game you can play for free?

  10. Playable Princess Peach Pleases Players

    Good News Everyone!

    Good news, everyone!* Princess Peach is playable in the new Super Mario, Super Mario 3D World, coming out for the Wii U. Aside from the introduction of the new cat-suit powerup, this game is also exciting because it is the first time Peach has been a playable character in a main-series Mario game (ie, the platformer staples that have been the core of the Mario series since the series began) since 1988 in Super Mario Bros. 2. She has appeared as a playable character in many Mario titles since then, but none within the primary line of platformers.
