Video: Mario prankstar, Rémi Gaillard, returns for more kart racing

Rémi Gaillard's dedication to authenticity continues to impress. Too bad by standers and The Law don't share his passion.

Video: The Legend of Zelda as an angst-filled 1980s movie

A big jar of hearts for the creators of this fan-made trailer for tackling five of the big 1980s teen movies. (The Breakfast Club, Say Anything, Sixteen Candles, and two others.) Post a comment if you know the names of the last two movies.

Video: NBC's Community does Dungeons & Dragons

It's just an indisputable fact that playing Dungeons & Dragons makes you a monumental nerd. Still, kudos to writers of Community for dealing with the subject matter without stooping to condescending humor.

Video: Have Princess Peach and Zelda fallen for their captors?

So all of these years that Mario and Link—and by Mario and Link I mean me—have been devoting themselves to rescuing these ladies and it turns out they don't even appreciate it?

2010 in Review: Not a Top 10 List!

Since all my esteemed colleagues seem to be doing it, I feel compelled to slap together thoughtfully craft a year-end assessment of my own. As there enough "Top 10 of 2010" lists to make a "Top 10 'Top 10 of 2010' lists" list, I won't be making one of those. Instead, I'll just ramble about some trends of 2010 and release you unharmed back to the Internet wilderness.

Video: Why Yoshi hates Mario

I actually remember that section of that level in Super Mario World quite well. If it's any consolation to Yoshi, it wasn't an easy decision to make at the time.

Video: Koopa gets a star

Mario needs to be more careful with those stars. We could have wound up with a new series of games like Super Koopa 64, Super Koopa Kart, Dr. Koopa or Koopa Party.

Video: Windows: LittleBigPlanet 2 Edition

Now they're recreating (sort of) operating systems in LittleBigPlanet 2? What's next? OS/2? Or maybe some productivity programs like MS Office or Adobe Photoshop? It doesn't sound that far-fetched.

Video: Fan-made Duke Nukem movie hails to the king

Did you ask what Gearbox was thinking picking up the rights to Duke Nukem Forever—the game that as its name implies has taken forever to be released. I mean, who still cares about Duke Nukem after over a decade of being the butt of every joke? Well, the people behind this fan made trailer certainly do care and they are probably not alone.

Video: New Mario Bros. Movie Trailer

This particular video really hits its mark. Part tribute to Super Mario Bros., part tribute to Grand Theft Auto and completely awesome. As an homage it captures some popular Nintendo catch phrases and mixes them in with altered non-Nintendo catch phrases. My favorite part of the video though is that frequent sad sack and third wheel, Luigi, is particularly badass. Though clearly the second in command in The Brothers Mario, he's not the pathetic, attention-seeking sibling we see in other fan videos.
