Yoshi

The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s fuckin’ weird shit like some guy trying to fuck his iPhone 4 (so that he can get an iPhone 4S) and shit like that. But there are a lot of awesome things that we see on a daily basis, and we’re lazy nerd bastards so we just round them all up once a week for your nerdgasm glory.

This week we’ll start off with some gorgeous digital paintings of Disney princesses — we’ve got Ariel, our little mermaid, pictured above. Jace Wallace‘s other artwork is absolutely amazing as well.

Have You Seen These ‘Super Smash Bros.’ Fatalities?

Nothing is better then firing up the Nintendo Wii and beating your friends senseless with animated violence. No game did that better then Super Smash Bros. Brawl, right?

Wrong suckers!

The game was fun for it’s time, but what the game really needed wzs a set of blood spurting Mortal Kombat style fatalities, to own your friends with. Fatalites would have made the experience so much better. Maybe then people older than 12 would play it more than once. Come on, what would you give to have a fatality that makes your opponent shit blood. That’s makes a game truly worth playing.

Mario is the Barbie of the video game world except without all the pink and no semblance of a genitalia stamped with “made in China”. Mario is purely “made in Japan”. In his past 25 years he’s done a lot.  He fights a giant lizard, eats mushrooms and enjoys more time with a princess then Prince William will get after his wedding, and that’s before he unclogs his toilet.

If you’ve been a member of the Nintendo generation for last 2 decades then you should know most of what makes Mario’s world go round, but they’re question boxes that have yet to be fist punched. What secrets do Mario and his cast of characters have hidden across the mushroom kingdom? What don’t you know?

Meat Diagrams Of Video Game Characters

vg-meat-1

Have you ever wondered what part of Bowser would be a good piece of meat? Have you wondered if Chocobo nuggets would go well with some honey mustard? Or have you wondered if Yoshi’s tongue would be good for a stew?

Well, if you don’t have the same obsession of meat diagrams like Jude Buffum did, I’m sure you said no to all three questions above.  That’s right, with some exploring and a love of meat diagrams, Buffum created some meat diagrams of well known video game characters and creatures.

So check out after the jump for some awesome looking diagrams and head on over to Buffum’s site if you want to buy any of the diagrams because who wouldn’t want a image of Yoshi all cut up.

Yoshi Loves Birdo

Screen shot 2010-11-01 at 11.16.48 PM

All I can say is that this has to be the weirdest love connection ever.

I mean, everyone loves Yoshi. He’s green, loveable and can eat anything. But, at the same time., everyone hates Birdo. She (I am calling Birdo a she in order to avoid the confusion for Super Mario Brothers 2, where she is male, but wants to be female) fires eggs out of her mouth and is not the prettiest of characters.

But the question in everyone’s mind is, where does she get her eggs?

As love-struck Yoshi finds out in the video below from the mildly disturbed folks at Dorkly, it is not a pleasant answer.

Watch the video to see if true love can really overcome such obstacles!

Yoshi Hates Mario

Screen shot 2010-10-25 at 11.31.10 PM

The relationship between Mario and Yoshi is never quite defined – Is it an owner/pet kind of thing, a master/slave, or does Mario simply take advantage of Yoshi‘s good and friendly nature?

The folks over at Dorkly believe it is the latter, as the video below proves.

I mean, you cannot help feel sorry for the guy … or is it a girl? After all, Yoshi constantly that gets gets scared way too easily and runs into pits, and Mario consistently abandons him just for a younger and different color Yoshi. How would you feel if you got treated like that?

All I ask is that next time, you think about the ramifications of your actions on the ever-dwindling Yoshi population! Maybe Yoshi deserves a little hate in his heart.

Nerd Art: Aging Video Game Characters

Link

As we get older (and grumpier), it seems that game characters usually just stay the same and look better as technology gets better. What if these characters actually showed their age as the years go by. Well, Dorkly got a set of pictures of known video game characters in their aged form and what they would be doing in the real world. No, not the MTV show but our world. Check after the jump to see how these game characters are deal with life in their old age and see if Slippy finally gets the respect he deserve. (more…)

Nerd Art: Samurai Mario

samurai-mario-1

I’m a little confused on what precisely is going on here but regardless this Mario Samurai art is pretty freaking cool. As I think about this illustration a bit further my best guess would be that it appears that Mario is about to mount dinosaur Yohsi and then sodomize Bowser with his sword. Don’t you agree?  Props to deviantART member xiaobaosg for creating this magnificent and bad ass art.
