You guys, this Super Mario World script is really, really bad. Even Max Landis admits it’s horrible. He wrote the script when he was just 19, but he had the cojones to post it on his site (which you have to admire) along with a foreword detailing the script’s many issues. Let’s start with it being a whopping 435 pages long and that it contains a ridiculous character list that includes Banjo and Kazooie. This is definitely in “so bad it’s good” territory.

Read Landis’s forward after the break.

This montage video created by RedKeyMon shows some of the unbelievable stunts that you can pull off in Grand Theft Auto V if you’ve got the skill. There are planes, cars, motorcycles, and even jet skis doing the impossible. What about the laws of physics, you ask? Since when did laws of any kind mean a darn thing in this game?

If you’re a gamer then you know that there are times when the dice love you and times when the dice hate you. Brian T. Huff has created a series of posters that show what happens when you’re rolling Natural 20s and killing your foes. They also show what happens when you get those pesky Natural 1s and die a horrible death as your buddies laugh so hard they fall out of their chairs.

disney smash bros 1

What if Disney characters starred in Nintendo games? By the looks of this art from Michael Villamejor, it would be awesome. He mashes up characters from Disney films with ones from Smash Bros., and it results in combinations like Stitch as Pikachu and Robin Hood as Star Fox. I can barely handle the brilliance of these pixels.

princess bride monopoly

Are you ready to climb the the Cliffs of Insanity and travel across the fearsome Fire Swamp? Then you’re prepared to play Princess Bride-opoly. The game puts you right into the film, and you can buy properties as you travel across the kingdom. Instead of building hotels, you’ll construct cottages and castles. Plus, this version of Monopoly has duels! My only gripe upon first look is that the player tokens aren’t more interesting.

You can pre-order the game now for shipment in January 2015.

Link and Zelda from the Legend of Zelda series are already animated in the games, but they don’t look like this. Illustrator Cassio Yoshiyaki’s style is similar to what you’d see in a DreamWorks animated film. Her renderings of the characters are beautiful, and these versions of Link and Zelda would look right at home riding dragons next to Hiccup.

Playing Mario Kart you can’t help but wish that you could actually drive one, and now you can thanks to Razor. This is the Razor Cray Cart XL (a follow-up to a smaller version they made for kids) and it’s built for grown-ups because kids shouldn’t be the only ones who get to have fun drifting all over the place. It was made to handle a 6’3″ 250-pound rider but has been tested up to 300 pounds. It will retail for $800 when it goes on sale in December, just in time for Christmas.

This is all in good fun, but at some point it’s all going to go south for the guy behind the camera. Apparently, he has a lot of time on his hands while he’s at work and takes every opportunity to scare the daylights out of his coworker by screaming Street Fighter quotes. One of these days, he’ll get his and I hope someone has a camera ready in landscape mode.

Self-taught engineer Ed Zarick has created a portable version of the PS4 game console that can be yours for $1,395. He calls is it the PlayBook 4 and it’s basically the console housed in a 3D printed case that also holds a 22″ 1080p display. You can get it in either black and blue or white and black.

Nintendo has announced some interesting news about Link’s upcoming appearance in Mario Kart 8. As you can see from the above pic, Link is getting a motorcycle (dubbed the “Master Cycle”).

Nintendo also mentioned that there might be some Zelda-themed racetracks in the game too.
