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?

Sonic is so jealous right now (more…)

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!
