Move over Mrs. Pac-Man, make room for Mr. Pac-Man

By Spencer . June 27, 2007 . 12:16pm

The title alone makes this rom hack worth mentioning, but there is more to Mr. Pac-Man besides a clever name. The repurposed release of Mrs. Pac-Man has new maps to check out and a new ghost. Granted it’s not nearly as lavish as Pac-Man: Championship Edition, but the NES never had widescreen support or HD […]

Flying into retail stores tomorrow, The Adventures of Super Mario Brothers 3

By Spencer . June 25, 2007 . 12:31pm

After a successful run of the Super Mario Brothers Super Show, DiC dropped the live action segments for the Adventures of Super Mario Brothers. The cartoon only series is set in the Super Mario Brothers 3 timeline (complete with raccoon tail power-ups!), but there are some differences. The most notable change is the names of […]

Watch: Mega Man 3, 4, 5 and 6 beaten simultaneously

By Spencer . June 7, 2007 . 6:05am

Hands down this is the most impressive tool assisted speed run I have ever seen. Four NES Mega Man games completed at nearly the same time with a single joystick in under forty minutes. The challenge is long to watch, but it wasn’t to show off the skill needed to complete all four games in […]

By Spencer . June 1, 2007 . 5:27am

Nintendo is about to make another milestone when they release Zelda II: The Adventure of Link on June 4th, 100 classic games titles on the virtual console store. The amount of virtual console games vary greatly by region, Japan is already up to 130+ and some of those games we will probably never see localized […]

Mario meets Lode Runner

By Spencer . May 31, 2007 . 2:28pm

  Ahh… Lode Runner we meet again and you’ve come a long way from being a stick figure. When Hudson picked up the rights to make a Famicom game they replaced the enemies with robots that look like Bomberman and a hero who bears a resemblance to Mario.   Maybe that was the inspiration for […]

Make your own Tetris shelves for next to nothing!

By Dan . May 30, 2007 . 1:26pm

About a month ago I wrote a little story up about some site selling Tetris shaped shelves for an asinine amount (Like $600 a piece asinine). We all had a good laugh but I personally wish I had to a way to acquire said shelves. Well with a little elbow grease and an adventurous D.I.Y. […]

A most excellent Mario cake

By Dan . May 29, 2007 . 5:01pm

I’ve never been what one would consider a good cook. I’ve tried, and what I make is certainly edible… but that’s about it. Luckily for the human race I’ve never tried to bake anything, as it seems daunting enough to me that I just may tear apart the space-time continum just by trying to make […]

Watch: Rockman dancing to Para Para

By Spencer . May 23, 2007 . 5:09pm

Dan found an excellent machinima video earlier today where orcs from World of Warcraft sing “A Pirate I was meant to be” from The Curse of Monkey Island. I’m not sure this is going to beat his find, but this retro machinima clip has 8-bit Megaman and the robot masters do Para Para to Harehare […]

The best Duck Hunt inspired handmade sweater you’ll see today

By Dan . May 16, 2007 . 10:42am

Now right up front I’ll confess I’m not entirely sure that headline is accurate, but it’s a damn good guess. Now where was I? This here is yet another reminder of how badly I suck at arts and crafts. I can’t even fathom having the ability to make something like this. If I were ever […]

Super Mario Brothers redesigned to frustrate you to no end

By Spencer . May 15, 2007 . 8:14am

Many of the Super Mario Brothers hacks on the market are designed to test how well you can exploit bugs in the game. This hack discovered by the Lost Levels is different, it’s designed to test your patience. Level 1-1 starts with Mario falling on a question mark block and a huge gaping pit to […]

Watch: Conquering Hard Relay Super Mario Brothers

By Spencer . May 6, 2007 . 2:26pm

Hard Relay Mario Brothers is a sadistic hack of Super Mario Brothers that requires players to exploit glitches to complete the game. While an emulator is used, it still takes skill to do tricks like bouncing off a moving koopa shell and passing through solid objects. TAS videos explains how to do some of the […]

Tetris shelving so expensive you won’t have any money left to put anything on them

By Dan . May 6, 2007 . 1:43pm

Man do I ever hate my lack of motivation. It had to be about 6-7 years ago I thought of an idea similar to this. You’d buy the different shaped shelves and could build out a custom sized/shaped shelf that would’ve fit perfectly wherever you needed it to. The Tetris shaped pieces would give it […]

By Spencer . April 19, 2007 . 12:17pm

Hidden in Super Paper Mario is a collection of older Nintendo consoles in one of the rooms of the third chapter. Look right underneath the HP meter and where the chest is. You can see (from left to right) a Nintendo 64, Gamecube, Famicom, Super Famicom, and the Virtual Boy!   See a close of […]
