  1. Kitten Tries to Play Smash Bros. on Wii U, Wins at Being Adorable

    Its final smash is just being paralyzingly cute.

    Seriously. Just watch this kitten play Wii U's fastest-selling game. It's the day before Thanksgiving weekend. You're not doing anything else anyway.

  2. Game Over, Man. Scientific Paper Concludes Mario Galaxy‘s Planets Would Actually Explode

    Next they'll say it's impossible to change trajectories mid-jump or something.

    Mario's been peddling lies according to a scientific paper called "It's a-me, Density!"—no, I'm not kidding. The paper alleges that the small planets in Super Mario Galaxy would destroy themselves if they had as much gravity as they do in the game. Still no word on whether touching a star makes you invincible.

    Do the Mario!

    Last night was the first part of the Dancing with the Stars season finale, and Sadie Robertson (Duck Dynasty) and Mark Ballas made the most of their free style with this adorable homage to Mario.

  4. Watch People Hilariously Misidentify the Cast of Smash Bros., Wii U’s New Fastest-Selling Game Ever

    You know what? No one correct the Rosalina one. That's probably helping.

    Serious Nintendophiles and Smash fans—as if those two are ever separate things—prepare to facepalm as a bunch of people still call some of the most popular video game characters of all time by the wrong names! It's OK, though; Smash Bros. for Wii U is now the Wii U's fastest-selling game in the United States!

  5. A 10-Year-Old Tearing It Up at a Smash Bros. Wii U Event Is Excellent Marketing

    No matter what the Internet says about it.

    We're infinitely bummed out that this video of 10-year-old Karissa wrecking at Smash Bros. is just footage of a marketing stunt, but that doesn't mean it's not great. Without contrary evidence, I probably would've believed it after she almost won the first match, although mostly because Sheik is such a hot pile of bullcrap in this game that it wouldn't surprise me to see an infant win with her.

  6. Things We Saw Today: The Absurdity That Was “Portable” Gaming in 1991

    "Just sling this white Xbox over your shoulder..."

    I can't tell if this is an ad or photographic evidence taken just seconds before this kid was wedgied into oblivion and had his little gaming briefcase stolen. I'm also pretty sure that case is larger than if he just carried a whole NES around with him and called it "portable gaming."

  7. Review: Fantasy Life Is a Mind-Numbingly Adorable Escape From Reality

    IT'S SO FLUFFY I'M GONNA DIE.

    Like the cute, simplistic aesthetic of Animal Crossing but wish it were a little more goal-oriented? Enjoy the wide scope of The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim but wish it were fluffier and just a little bit more manageable? Fantasy Life, which comes out for the Nintendo 3DS tomorrow, is the adorable middle ground you've been waiting for.

  8. Revisiting the Kick-Ass Female Lead Of Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia

    “Hear me! I am the morning sun, come to vanquish this horrible night!”

    Most lists of "female leads done right" tend to mention favourites like Chell from Portal or Jade from Beyond Good & Evil. But there are others that too few gamers remember. Exhibit A: Shanoa from 2008's Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia>

  9. The Avengers Starring Nintendo’s Characters Will Help You Celebrate Today’s Smash Bros. Release

    Super Science Bros!

    Smash Bros. for 3DS comes out today, but you'll be too busy watching this animated mashup of The Avengers and Nintendo's characters to play it. Pikachu as Thor is everything I never knew I wanted.

  10. The Secret Heroine of Video Games: Princess Peach

    That's Princess Toadstool to you, mister.

    When I was in elementary school, two video game characters in particular helped me visualize a space for girls like me in the medium I would grow to love and write about. One was Princess Peach, who has meant more to me than any other video game heroine since. Below is a look at her throughout Mario history—the games that did her justice, the ones that let her down, and why through it all, I still love her.
