No Man’s Sky becomes No Mario’s Sky becomes DMCA Sky

No Man’s Sky – love it, hate it…it doesn’t matter it exists and will continue to do so. I personally was all over the NMS hype. More so for the technology, I mean, a game that large and it’s only a 3GB download?! Gotta love math. What are the possibilities…

House of Mouse gives Mario a nod in animated short

Disney pretty much owns the entertainment landscape. From Marvel flicks to that indie sci-fi fantasy hit Star Wars to its collection of animated characters – there is no doubt that you’ve seen something Disney has made in the past month…year…decade. They’ve had a lot of influence across the world including…

Get 8bits on your feet with Vans Nintendo themed sneakers

Vans have been known to do themed sneakers from Star Wars to Disney to the Beatles. Now, it’s Nintendo and the 8bit world. I’m filing this under 8bit Cool Stuff and Crap because it’s a split for me. I, personally, wouldn’t be caught dead in these but that’s me. I also have…

Apparently Mario Drives a Mercedes

Interesting team up here…Nintendo and Mercedes. At first, it seems like a strange combo but then realizing who they’re targeting (people in their 30’s who grew up with Mario aka me) it starts to make sense. And the fact that it’s a Japanese ad. Even Honda is trying to get…

Game of Super Mario Thrones – An Intro Mash-Up

Well…this seems fitting. The only other thing that could really tie these two worlds together would be finding the Princess dead in a castle…at the hands of Luigi. Talk about surprise season ending. YouTube user NicksplosionFX put this together and being fans of both of these worlds – we approve….

Infographic: The Nebula of NES Games

I enjoy infographics just as much as the next person. I enjoy them even more when they involve a personal pastime. Cue – The Nebula of NES Games. It’s exactly as it sounds – a galactic nebula of over 700 NES games broken out by genre and year. A must…
