26 Years Later, Here's A Deleted Scene From The Super Mario Bros. Movie

26 Years Later, Here's A Deleted Scene From The Super Mario Bros. Movie

As terrible as it was, the 1993 Mario Bros. movie has a cult following online, led by the dedicated team at SMBmovie.com, who have spent years cataloguing and uploading everything you’d ever want to know —and a lot of stuff you wouldn’t—about the film. In May, they hit paydirt: they got hold of an old VHS tape that contained deleted scenes from the movie.

The scenes are pretty rough, and were...

Man Caught Playing Pokemon Go On Eight Phones In His Car

Man Caught Playing Pokemon Go On Eight Phones In His Car

You know how there’s a warning on Pokemon Go not to play the game while driving? This guy never got the memo, and when he is eventually sent it, needs it sent another seven times, just to be sure.

As The Seattle Times reports, Washington State troopers noticed a car stopped on the shoulder of a busy highway on Tuesday night, and pulled over to see if the driver needed assistance.

Instead, they...

Apex Legends Gets Some Very Nice Toys

Apex Legends Gets Some Very Nice Toys

Weta, who in addition to being a special effects house are also a merch company, have a bunch of Apex Legends stuff coming out, ranging from little vinyl figures to more expensive statues.

Statues first: they’ll be out in December, stand around 9 inches tall and cost $100. They’re called figures, but since they’re set in elaborate poses and are 100% immovable, I’m calling them statues. If...

Henry Cavill Is Now Geralt In The Witcher 3, Too

Henry Cavill Is Now Geralt In The Witcher 3, Too

We have come full circle. No longer is Henry Cavill just playing Geralt in Netflix’s Witcher adaptation, but he is now replacing Geralt in The Witcher 3 itself thanks to a mod that I’m honestly surprised took this long to turn up.

Adnan’s Henry Cavill mod swaps Geralt’s old-ass face and replaces it with a decent approximation of Superman’s, and in keeping with the traditions of a man involved...

Some Of Our Favorite Board Games Have Employee Cameos On The Cards

Fantasy Flight, the publishers of some of the biggest and best board games around (from Star Wars to Arkham to Game of Thrones), have a little tradition going among staff: Once you’ve worked there for five years, you get to appear as a character in one of their games.

While this might sound like the same kind of thing you see in video games, where some random NPC is named after a developer,...

Shaved Mario Is Making Me Feel Strange

Shaved Mario Is Making Me Feel Strange
Your browser does not support HTML5 video tag.Click here to view original GIF

Here is a very simple, but very effective mod for Super Mario Odyssey that shaves Mario’s moustache for the entirety of the game. Cutscenes, gameplay, everything. It’s gross and I hate it.

And yet...I also cannot stop looking at it. At how young it makes him look. Like this is the Young Super Mario Chronicles. Like a...

In order to get the game cleared, Bohemia Interactive are changing every version across the planet just to comply with Australia’s classification guidelines.

Since it’s impractical to create a new version just for...

Ninja Understandably Upset That His Old Twitch Channel Was Promoting A Porn Stream [Update]

Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, who recently left his 14 million-follower Twitch account behind to go and stream on rival platform Mixer , has issued a statement labelled “disgusted and so sorry” today after that now-dormant account—which he no longer operates—was promoting streams from other users, including one broadcasting pornography.

Ninja obviously has no control over that Twitch landing page...

Cooking Mama Has Gone Vegetarian

Cooking Mama Has Gone Vegetarian

There’s a new Cooking Mama game coming to the Nintendo Switch via publishers Planet Digital Partners, pitched as a reboot for the series, and while the announcement was centred around some bizarre blockchain news, the most interesting part is that there’s now a new vegetarian mode to go alongside regular recipes that include meat.

“New to Cooking Mama will be a ‘Vegetarian Mode’ where players...
