For many years Mario Kart fans who visit Tokyo have been able to live their dream by taking a tour of Akihabara in go carts dressed as their favourite character from the game. Sadly, the hilarious and totally legal way of seeing the sights of Tokyo run by MariCar has lost the latest legal battle with Nintendo.
The battle to dominate gaming in front of our TV’s has raged since the birth of video games in the 80’s. With the release of the classic mini consoles reliving these gaming memories and catching up on classics that you might have missed has never been so much fun, or simpler. Many of the biggest names of the 80’s and early 90’s are present NES, SNES, Sega MegaDrive, Commodore 64 and the soon to be released PlayStation.
Carefully blending two monsters of the 80’s, Mario Brothers and the Rubik’s cube, is no easy feat but to do it in such a smile inducing way is pure genius. Hell even the stop frame animation style is right out of an 80’s Peter Gabriel music video, Sledgehammer anyone.
The video was originally carefully crafted as part of the 30th anniversary celebrations for Super Mario Bros, an iconic game by any standard released right smack in the middle of the 80’s, September 13, 1985.
Presented for you viewing pleasure is the animation that uses Rubik’s cubes as pixels to bring Super Mario Bros to life in a whole new way. Sit back relax and prepare for grinning to begin.
The Nintendo character Luigi used to be so happy but then something changed, something deep inside. He hasn’t been the same since.
The dark side of Luigi has been making headlines around the internet this week. Collections of death stare gifs and videos are going viral as we speak. If you have been wondering why the internet was slow this week it was all Luigi’s fault.
