OK. So this is weird.

Reddit user pourmeanother77 has edited a copy of Mario 64 so that his son's face replaced the texture on the game's goombas.

It's about as simple a modification as you can do to a game, swapping one file for another, but when the result was "He laughed for a good 10 minutes straight while stomping on his own face", who cares how it was done?

You know as a forum moderator and creator of Super Mario 64 hacks (like the one above), it can sometimes be really painful to see the coverage ROM hacks gets on this site. It's usually all marriage proposal hacks or stuff like this. Simple hacks that anyone can do and thus are uninterested to actually look into the scene anymore.

A lack of a valuable mouthpiece and the increasing popularity of PC modding is pretty much the reason ROM hacking is dieing here.
