Wrestling fans will immediately recognize Stone Cold Steve Austin doing his famous beer toast in the ring. Grab two beers, smack ’em together, and chug. Pro gamer Kenneth Bradley was at CEO 2015 for a fighting game tournament and took to the stage just like Austin.

The music starts, he struts down the runway, and then chugs two drinks thrown to him by someone in the audience. He finishes it all off by hitting the ring announcer, who has been hamming it up the whole time, with a Stone Cold Stunner.

Gamer and Lego master Simon Liu got sucked right into Borderlands 2. When he emerged and returned to his love of Lego, he recreated a beloved character. This Claptrap stands 2.5 feet tall and was on display at Brickworld Chicago 2015.

unreal mario

I’m super intrigued by the reactions to this video of Mario in Unreal Engine 4 by YouTuber Aryoksini. Some people think it’s amazing, others think it’s all levels of wrong to put Mario in a realistic setting.

All of the environments are from the Unreal Engine marketplace and Aryoksini rebuilt Mario’s animations from scratch, so it ends up looking like Mario’s trapped in everything from Coruscant to Rapture.

Personally, I liked it, but I can see how it might throw some people. Check it out after the break and let us know what you think.

blindfolded mario run

Y’know how people like to say they could do something blindfolded when they’re so much better than you at something? Well, speedrunner PangaeaPanga can back it up. He recently put his skills to the test and did a run of Super Mario World while blindfolded in only 23:14.

It’s mesmerizing to watch and just thinking about the muscle memory and skill involved blows my mind.

Check it out after the break.

This beautiful image is made of 1,128,960 blocks in Minecraft. The blocks were placed by hand rather than by a computer program and the process took 23 weeks to complete. It’s the painstaking work of Thorlar who created the trio of Kerrigan, Diablo, and Deathwing.

Kjetil Nordin is a Norwegian computer programmer/skydiving champion/crochet master who spent 800 hours of his free time over the last six years crocheting this Super Mario Bros. 3 World 1 map.

He was especially careful to get exactly the right yarn colors to match the Super Mario All-Stars version of the game and, according to NRK, even scrapped one section when the shade of water looked too purple.

Business cards are still an important way of connecting with potential customers, and we assume that this real estate agent has plenty of nerdy clients. Her Magic the Gathering card describes her as a “Legendary Creature – Sales Rep” and I would hire her to sell our house in a heartbeat.
