Posted in Nintendo by Conner Flynn on September 13th, 2010

Everyone’s favorite Princess rescuing plumber is 25 years old today. That’s right, Super Mario has been around since 1985 and is probably one of the most recognized game characters in the world. This news makes me feel old.

Nintendo is celebrating Mario’s birthday with a contest where you can win a bunch of Mario themed prizes. They are giving away a range of Nintendo DSI XL consoles as well as a copy of the new Super Mario Bros. You can also check out a cool video which shows Super Mario Bros history over the last 25 years here.

Sony PlayStation turns 15This just makes you feel old. Can you believe it has been 15 years since the original PlayStation was launched? How many of us spent countless hours playing games on this thing? It was launched in Japan 15 years ago today and in the US and UK a year later.

Sony then launched the PS2 in 2000, and it remains the number one selling game console of all time. In 2001 Sony relaunched the original PlayStation as the PS One. Of course the PS3 came after that. Here’s to many more years of good gaming.

Commodore 64 cake It’s been a while since we’ve seen an awesome geek cake as retro-liscous as this one. A genuine Commodore 64 Cake. It was made in honor of some guy’s 30th birthday.

It has some super nice detail work on the frosting, like all of that keyboard lettering. Even a power cord. Though I don’t remember Pong being available for the C64. It sure looks tasty. This guys wife, who made the cake, is a real special woman and if things don’t work out for them she can make me a cake anyday.

Millennium Falcon cake is too good to eat

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on July 16th, 2008

Millennium Falcon cakeWe’ve seen our share of geek cakes, whether you’re talking Star Trek or R2-D2. But the Millennium Falcon cake is the best yet. Probably the best ever. It takes the cake.

It’s super detailed and would leave a trail of sickeningly sweet icing through hyperspace. It was made by Charm City Cakes in Baltimore and some lucky guy who isn’t me received it this weekend for his birthday. I wouldn’t know whether to eat it or get my old action figures out and play. It just needs a blockade of Star Destroyer cakes to outrun and the scene is complete.
