Someone re-cut the video for speedrunner Cheese’s world record 120 star time in Super Mario 64 down to only the times Mario says “Yahoo!” It’s just over seven minutes long. Mario says “Yahoo!” a total of 369 times, give or take. I counted.
Last night, the top two Super Mario Bros 3 speedrunners faced off for a race that ran into problems—including game crashes. Despite the hurdles, speedrunners Mitchflowerpower and GrandPOObear bounced back and showed sportsmanship and skill under stress.
Mario may be known for his background as a plumber, or his recent adventure as a body-snatching fashionista, but over the years he’s also become one of gaming’s most popular athletes. With Mario’s newest tennis iteration launching later this year for the Nintendo Switch, it’s the perfect time to look back on the many…
Nintendo’s booth has everything: Mario Tennis Aces, Smash Bros., Realistic props, and the voice of Mario hanging out. Our own Tim Rogers was there on a quest to show the people at home what the experience of E3 is really like.
This pair of mods, with Mario replacing Link and Bowser replacing a Hinox, brings one of Nintendo’s oldest battles to one of its newest classics.
After taking Mario Tennis Aces out for a spin during last weekend’s limited beta, I’ve reached the definitive conclusion that the beloved sports franchise has turned into a fighting game like Street Fighter, Tekken, or Guilty Gear.
Mario Tennis Aces is the sequel to the spiritual successor to the follow-up to Pong. Somewhere along the way, video game tennis became significantly more complicated than two paddles and a square ball. Fortunately, this upcoming Switch game will teach you all its tricks, by way of the RPG-style single-player adventure…
If the president of Koei Tecmo had his way, the next couple of Warriors games would be Star Wars and Mario. You can’t fault the man’s taste.
Last September, modders created a way for up to 24 people to jump around together in Super Mario 64. The ROM hack was called SM64 Online and it garnered lots of attention, including Nintendo’s who promptly issued copyright strikes to have the ROM hack and videos demoing it taken down. Eight months later the modders…
Super Mario Odyssey came out last October and continues to delight players. Datamined secrets, awesome glitches, and a fancy balloon hunting mode have kept players exploring the game’s vibrant world long after other games have come and gone.
This cosplay by Oh My Sophii is called “Apocalypse Princess Peach”, but there’s definitely some Borderlands influence here as well.
I try to play Super Mario Bros. 2 every spring. The game’s bright colors, whimsical level design, and obsession with weeding make it feel right at home around the time of the the vernal equinox, and it’s also one of the easiest to pick up and play. It’s not as challenging as the original Super Mario Bros. but not as…
Nintendo just added two new outfits to Super Mario Odyssey’s post-game shop. One is a baseball uniform, while the other is a nod to the Satellaview, a SNES add-on that let users download games using a modem.
Thanks to this promotional image for the upcoming Mario Tennis Aces, an intrepid fan figured out how big Luigi’s dick is. Let’s use their math to figure out the sizes of other Mario objects and characters.
Video games are still a relatively young medium. Many of the most iconic characters weren’t created that long ago. But what about a century from now? Which ones will remain?
In September, Nintendo crushed hearts across the world by declaring that Mario was no longer a plumber. This week, the publisher has remedied that horrible mistake, changing Mario’s bio to note that he is, in fact, a plumber.
Super Mario Odyssey speedrunners often use glitches to grab tricky power moons or skip through major portions of the game. A new patch implemented alongside the new Luigi’s Balloon World mode last week blocked some of those crucial tricks, slowing any runner who upgraded their game. Now, the community is trying to…
Growing up, you probably played hide-and-seek, and you probably had one friend who was so good at hiding that it felt like they’d vanished. Well, imagine that they could literally phase through walls in order to win, and you’ll have an idea of how Mario Odyssey players are feeling right now.
