Nintendo drops DS Lite to $100, Mario games go red

Posted in Nintendo DS by Conner Flynn on May 31st, 2011

Out with the old and in with the new. That’s what Nintendo is thinking with an official price cut on the DS Lite from $129.99 to $99.99. Very nice of them. The DSi’s price is still $149.99 and the DSi XL is $169.99.

Aside from the DS Lite price cut, Nintendo is also playing with colors. Red in particular. They will be re-releasing six classic DS Mario games with red boxes. They hope that the red color makes them easier to spot when customers are shopping for games. These games include New Super Mario Bros., Mario Party DS, Mario & Donkey Kong: Miniland Mayhem, Super Mario 64 DS, Mario Kart DS and Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story. So who is buying a DS Lite now?

Mario Mushroom Barbecue Grill

Posted in Grilling by Conner Flynn on June 11th, 2010

When barbecuing with Peach, Bowser and the rest of the gang, a plain old grill just won’t do. But this Mushroom grill is perfect for cooking up some Yoshi burgers. It was created by Greg Mata, who dubs it the Grilltendo.

Greg had to use special paints to make sure it would stand up to the heat. Hopefully whatever he cooks with it makes you larger or lets you shoot fireballs. It’s much better than your old rusty grill.

Look out Bowser, Mario drives a Mario Mech

Posted in Toys by Conner Flynn on February 9th, 2010

I don’t think Mario has ever actually done this in a game, but this is exactly how to kick Bowser’s ass. You ride around in a large Mech version of yourself. The Mech Mario was designed by custom toymaker Donald Kennedy aka KodyKiala, who obviously loves Nintendo and is a great artist.

Yep, that’s a little Super Mario controlling a Big Super Mario. I call that awesome even if it is wacky and absurd. I just love all the detail.

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on June 7th, 2009

Video Game TattoosWe thought we would take a look at some questionable gaming tattoos. The kind that are either a bad idea or not well thought out, or just plain wrong. Gamers love getting tattoos of their favorite characters, but sometimes, they just need a friend to stop them from making a horrible mistake.

Friends don’t let friends make bad tattoo decisions. Unless both of you have been drinking heavily anyway. Some of the images are NSFW. Click through to check them all out.

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on June 2nd, 2009

Wii Fit Plus for fall, lets you play Mario-type gamesNintendo has announced Wii Fit Plus. The new fitness software is planned for release this fall in two versions: bundled with the Wii Balance Board and as a stand-alone. Apparently, the new Wii Fit “moves in an added direction” beyond the original, letting users “create a specific workout program that’s perfect” for them. Six new strength and yoga activities can be tailored to your own tastes, depending on what goals you have. There’s also a revamped interface focused on creating seamless routines of 20, 30, 40 minutes.

Plus will also introduce 15 new minigames, like juggling, skateboarding and a game called “perfect 10″ were players move their hips to select numbers that add up to 10. It was dubbed, “Brain Age for your backside,”.

Nintendo offers two new DS Lite bundlesIf you haven’t got yourself a DS Lite by now, I don’t know if these two new bundles are going to lure you in. And if you already own a DS lite, chances are you are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the DSi here in the states.

But if Nintendo has the urge to bundle, at least a few of you will have the urge to buy. The bundles come in an Ice Blue Brain Age set with custom carrying case and a Mario Red New Super Mario Bros set with “M” logo. They’re pretty nice looking and are being released this Friday for $150.

17 geek Lego statues

Posted in Lists by Conner Flynn on November 23rd, 2008

homerWhy are geeks drawn to Legos? They’re fun sure. You can create original stuff and recreate almost anything imaginable. It probably has something to do with why the pyramids were constructed in Egypt. Humans just need to create. And since the dawn of time geeks have been the most innovative and creative. Here’s a look at a bunch of random cool statues all done up in lego. Statues used to be made from bronze, steel, gold, concrete… But the age of Lego is at hand.

Lego Donkey Kong that moves

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on August 10th, 2008

Lego Donkey Kong that movesHere’s something that makes my cold geek heart melt, skip a beat and pop out of my chest cartoon style. This Lego version of Donkey Kong actually moves people! It moves! It’s alive! Rolling barrels roll. Donkey Kong throws rolling barrels at Mario and Mario jumps. Have a look at the video below.

Pretty awesome invention. I’m not joking when I say that it’s right up there with the toaster and the waffle maker. The guy even made it play the Donkey Kong game start song. If I were rich I would create a Think tank with guys like this, throw a trillion bucks at them and see what else they could do. I would advance geekery and nerdum ahead by a good thousand years.

Mushroom vacuum cleaners won’t give you an extra life
Just how do they keep the Mushroom kingdom clean anyway? Looks like all the mushrooms in the land are actually vacuum cleaners. Makes sense. I mean, you need something to suck up left behind star power, coins, Yoshi poo…

These are also perfect for the messy gamer. I’m sure they can suck up that mound of potato chip droppings that have collected in your game spot. Well, maybe they aren’t that strong, but they make your home look more like a Mario game and I happen to know that’s a personal goal of yours. The Mushroom vacuum runs on 2 AA batteries and is available in red, orange, green or purple for $12.

Collectors Edition Nintendo Monopoly

Collectors Edition Nintendo Monopoly
Ok, so I have been sick of seeing Monopoly this and Monopoly that, for years now. Every time you turn around there’s a new one and I always imagine some lonely geek collecting each one and storing it away as they come out. But this latest Monopoly game I might actually buy and it might even make me want to play again.

This one features Mario, Luigi, Link, Zelda, Kirby, and other NES icons. The box comes with 6 collectible pewter tokens including Donkey Kong’s Barrel, Link’s Iron Boots, Hylian Shield, NES Controller, Mario’s Cap, and a Koopa Shell. I especially like the NES Controller. The Collectors Edition Nintendo Monopoly retails for just $33.00. As usual, it’s the same exact game. It just has Nintendo graphics everywhere.

Century Sutra 1688 mobile phone gamesThose that are game obsessed in China have a new gadget to keep their eyes glued to their mobile phone and it’s a blast from the past. The Century Sutra 1688 phone looks like any other generic mobile out there until you slide on the gamepad and turn it into a SNES thanks to the emulator chip inside of it.

Yup, now you can play Super Mario Bros. and other old school Nintendo games while killing time and your button mashing will be made a lot easier. The company gives you 1,500 ROM titles when you pick one of these up and it skirts around copyright issues by saying that you should only have all those warez if you also own the originals…which of course we all do, don’t we?

The phone has the popular touchscreen, a 1.3 megapixel camera, dual …
