World of Nintendo

16) Starfox video

This home-made sketch is about Fox and the intergalactic gang having trouble coming up with the rent for their squalid student flat. Features some spectacularly awful cosplay, and a location that looks like it could use a good cleaning/fumigation. Predictably, Slippy’s a bit of a tool. Ahh, game characters in the real world – is there no end to your comedy potential?

17) Mega Man goodies

Celebrating Mega Man’s 15th anniversary, these promotional items are available from Capcom’s Japanese store. If anyone figures out how to get them to ship to this country, let us know. There’s a slim chance they might be released here in time for the 20th anniversary, by which time we might have completed Mega Man 9.

18) Cupcake horror

No doubt these Mario and Luigi carrot cupcakes are delicious, but why do they look like the brothers are drowning? Those ‘moustaches’ on their faces make them look like they’ve surfaced under something particularly unsavoury. Ewww.

19) Gunpei Yokoi papercraft

One of the stranger papercraft models we’ve seen. Cut out and assemble these pieces to build a 3D cartoon caricature of Game Boy creator Gunpei Yokoi. Get your template here.

20) Mario cartoon

Seth MacFarlane, the bloke behind the Family Guy cartoon series, has turned his hand to videogame parodies on YouTube. Check it out, it’s, erm… not as funny as Family Guy. Makes us want to eat burgers, though, for some reason.

    When Kirby looks that bad after a holiday in Chernobyl, wonder what he hell Yoshi would look like. Also, I'm officially going to sleep with a crowbar under my pillow. I prefer being attacked by Pyramid Head than Chernobyl Kirby, at least Pyramid Head has a funky dance. Also, to GR, a reply system like Youtube's would be brilliant

    AHHH! Kirby has a nail on his hand!?!?! Its a giant thumb!?!?

    This one of my favorite recurring features! Keep up the good work guys! And now off to the top 7!!

    I bought a candy wiimote - they don't really 'shoot' out as much as just sort of snap forward. It's kind of like a pez dispenser, I guess. I ate all the candy, and now the mini wiimote is swinging from my rear view mirror in my car. I get compliments about it sometimes. also - my captcha? "Frick time"

    You could make a ton of dough if you had a store that sold these.
  • sora3428 - October 28, 2008 2:18 a.m.

    i would like some of that cake lol rofl
  • GoldenMe - October 27, 2008 10:48 p.m.

    Agreed with Joe. Nintendo may not have the best console right now, but it sure has a wonderous world. Great article GR!
  • Skooch - October 27, 2008 10:04 p.m.

    I can just imagine someone grabbing their Wii Remote, pressing the B button and shooting a small tasty treat straight through their very expensive TV.
  • Gonri 13 - October 27, 2008 9:37 p.m.

    I agree about the Seth Macfarlane youtube videos, not as funny as Family Guy. The Mario one is definately the best.
  • oreomonkey - October 27, 2008 9:33 p.m.

    if that wii remote shoots out candies couldnt you trick ur friend into shooting himself in the face. tell him the controls are put the back toward your face and just press b. i would replace the candies with paintballs
  • bl00dyvalen7ine - October 27, 2008 8:57 p.m.

    DUDE! The Mario mints taste like ASS, they're nasty... in fact we payed my friend like 5 bucks to eat like 10 at once
  • Thequestion 121 - October 27, 2008 8:08 p.m.
