  6. Things We Saw Today: Hello Yes I’d Like to Play This Game Now Please

    The princess is in whatever castle she damn well pleases.

    This amazing redesign of Princess Peach (by Kirbi Fagan) is just one of many great female character redesigns in a blog post by Lauren Panepinto about the male gaze in art and entertainment and how including female perspectives doesn't take anything away from anyone else. Give it a read, check out the awesome art, and maybe join the invite-only Women in Fantasy Illustration Facebook group if you're so inclined.

    Four score and seven years ago, Wil Wheaton recorded a bunch of lines for Codename S.T.E.A.M., and now you will be able to hear him in the game when it comes out next week—as ABRAHAM LINCOLN. Wait, this makes total sense. Everyone knows that Abraham Lincoln invented the emoticon, and Wil Wheaton is the current president of the Internet! It fits, I tells ya! It aaaaaall fits!

    It's-a mystery, Mario!

    Super Mario World is a great classic game, but just what "world" does it take place on? Mario's amazing jumping prowess has some answers for us, which is great, because we'd really like to find the planet with the friendly, rideable dinosaurs.

  10. Even Today’s Tech-Savvy Kids Can’t Work the Nintendo Power Glove, but They Can Sure Flail Try

    At least today's motion controls work better than this. Most of the time, anyway.

    The power glove is so bad. Incredibly bad. So unbelievably bad that even kids of today with motion control experience just wind up flailing around—the motion control equivalent of button mashing.

  12. Nintendo’s Mobile Game Plans Are Literally the Opposite of a Good Idea

    They're going full Wario.

  16. A.I. Mario Figures out How to Destroy His Enemies; Now You’re Playing God With Power

    "If I talk to the humans, they certainly learn to trust me."

    Researchers at the University of Tübingen in Germany have given Mario the ultimate power up: he can learn about his environment and enemies. They gave him rudimentary "feelings," too, but apparently forgot empathy, because he sure is obsessed with how to kill things. So, par for the course for artificial intelligence.

  17. Hacked Power Glove Gives Robot Chicken the World’s Baddest Bionic Animator

    He's the a wizard.

    A DIY stop-motion animation helper would be cool on its own, but Robot Chicken animator Dillon Markey took the idea one step further by building the functionality into an old Nintendo Power Glove.

    He wishes there were only amiibro, amirite?

    Before we start, I should let you know: Rosalina (gold palette) is my favorite character to play in Super Smash Bros. Wii U. That's why I was incredibly surprised to hear that, apparently, whiny man babies on the internet absolutely can't stand her inclusion in the Mario franchise—up to the point where they'll spend real money to deny her fans' happiness.
