  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  9. 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?
