Ask the Bastards #13: Because Yes, We Are Still Talking About Star Wars Episode VII

- 11-11-12Featured Posted by Matthew Jackson

Welcome to another ridiculously ridiculous (oh yeah we went there) installment of Ask the Bastards, the weekly feature where you the readers get to ask us, the staff of Nerd Bastards, anything you want about the world of geekdom. This week, we’re talking Star Wars, because at this point it seems like there won’t be a point in the next three years when we’re not talking about Star Wars, but we also make time for some questions about our geeky guilty pleasures, and we try to name the best video game of all time.

Mario and Luigi have been fighting Koopas for a long time now, eventually they’d need to try out some new moves. Watch the Mario Bros. train with nunchucks to what of course must their favorite training tune. (Fashionably Geek)

8 Bit Skittles Video Game Art

- 12-16-10Cool Stuff, Videogames Posted by Zach Lawrence

Don’t you love all minimalist artwork of any 8 bit video game character? I do. Funny thing is, it’s almost always  these same picture poses, but who cares? They are the staples of video game history as well as our present kings. Lets face it, Mario and Link still rule the roost for overall sales and foreign&domestic game grosses. I bought the Wii JUST to play Zelda: Twilight Princess. And Mario games still out sell the masses. So what better way to immortalize these two than Skittle art? There is no better way. I’m thinking that Link’s sword are the purple (Grape) ones and the hilt has to be a mashup of the sour skittles. Geekologie has it right, the sour skittles are uber tasty, although by the time you’re done with a bag they have burned the inside of your mouth raw with the acidity of the turpentine sour powder.

Mario Bros. Meets GTA In This F’N Awesome Movie Trailer

If there’s one thing I want you all to watch today, it would be this video. The folks over at The Game Station have brought us this f*(#ing amazing movie trailer that portrays the story of Mario Bros. as a gangland flick.

The directors of this video, did an awesome job portraying every essential character every Mario fan knows (including the Hammer Bros.) and giving them the proper role.

The trailer clocks in at 5 minutes but it’s damn worth your time if your a video game fan and hell, maybe some of you movie folks may like this as well.

Mario, Luigi and Toad See London&France-Peach Violated!

Mario, ya little rascal you!! Him and his buddies were doing what men have been doing for years, except with a more creative flare!  Like John Candy dropping a handful of change in SPLASH to look upskirt, Mario has perfected the technique with ” Magical” results. Yu watch the video to see what they see, but I’ve provided a picture to show you. I was thinking more along the lines of a G-String, but hey, we’ll take what we can get!

Facebook Fight: Mario Vs. Luigi

You know, the concept of a Facebook fight is pretty damn silly but when it involves known characters such as the Mario Bros., it becomes entertaining. The image above is just a preview of a Facebook fight between the Italian plumbers and like always, Mario proves why Luigi is the bitch (come on, we all know he is).

I remember being in some sort of internet fight, it was with some person going by the name USSJ Mystic Gohan or something “original” like it and he was trying to prove the folks on a Dragon Ball message board that I wasn’t half Japanese… yeah, it was stupid. Anyway, click after the jump to check out the full image and full fight and see if you feel bad for Luigi. Now only if someone makes a Facebook fight between Wario and Waluigi.
