This is why we're dorks

Considering the amount of remixes Mims' hit rap single "This is Why I'm Hot" set off -- R. Kelly's "This is Why I'm Cold," the NBA's "The Phoenix Suns Are Hot," and Chubbs' "This is Why I'm Fat" for example -- we're surprised that it took this long for its catchy hook to reach video gaming's catc...

The plant has his time

We've played through enough Super Mario Bros. games to have learned that no pipe should be approached without caution. After a lifetime of suffering piranha plant attacks, always at the least opportune moments, we've trained ourselves to scrutinize every green tube before hopping over it. We'll sit ...

Meet the NES cell phone

A phone that has the ability to play NES roms isn't anything new, but a phone that was designed specifically for that purpose (see the "A" and "B" buttons) is plenty to trigger our desire synapses.

LBP taunts us with Mario Sack Boy concept art

Oh no, that honor is held down by the Japanese gamer above, who busts out the DS and shows us all how to do it. And, you kno...

Complete World 1-1 without looking, get on TV

It got one guy on TV, at least, in Japan. Super Mario Bros. has completely become a spectator event, and deservedly so-- check out this guy's virtuoso performance of the first stage (of the Famicom Mini version of Super Mario Bros. played on a DS Lite). Sure, he wanders a bit, but that's only becau...

Super Mario Bros. played with eyes closed

We've seen the original Super Mario Bros. beaten in five minutes, listened to countless remixes of the theme song, and gawked at gigantic mosaics made out of fridge magnets. This stunt takes the Mario-shaped cake, however. A Japanese television show (why can't American TV be this ... interesting?...

Hacked Super Mario Bros. is better than LittleBigPlanet

Feeling that Super Mario Bros. lacked in user-generated content, the folks over at SelectButton decided to start randomly inserting text into the Mario ROM (yarrr) and see what happens. Apparently the game is stable enough to run decently with junk added to it, and the results are ... playable and ...
