Super Mario Bros in Felt

Sunday, May 17th, 2009

Hot on the heels of Paper Mario comes Nintendo’s next big franchise… Cloth Mario?

Felt Mario Bros

Perpetuating the current deluge of Mario-themed handicrafts, Alice of Eat A Duck I Must has painstakingly recreated these NES-era Super Mario Bros characters in felt, lovingly preserving all of their 8-bit pixel-y goodness in the process.

We’re guessing she’s still working on the flagpole and the castle…

Fergie vs Sonic the Hedgehog

Saturday, May 9th, 2009

Sonic the Hedgehog’s overwhelming influence on the world of pop continues with this superb mash-up by Afriquedeluxe, in which he juxtaposes the classic Sonic 1 Green Hill Zone theme with Fergie’s 2007 single Glamourous.

Friday, May 8th, 2009

This superb WarioWare: Made in Ore microgame ingeniously reprises the excellent Bit.Trip.Beat. If you’re unfamiliar with Made in Ore, it’s a WarioWare title which enables the creation of your own microgames, complete with custom graphics and music.
