    By 21 June 2011

    We love a good Mario spoof here at Pocket-lint. We were massive fans of Joe Nicolosi's Mario movie trailer from SXSW, absolutely adored the College Humour Peach Stockholm Syndrome sketch and were greatly impressed with the detail in Brandon Laatsch's...

    Recently on Pocket-lint we brought you sound guru Jake "virt" Kaufman's modern spin on the original Super Mario Bros. game. Well, modern in terms of sound at least. This 3DSMax animation effort, created by Brandon Laatsch, is perhaps what the original...

    VIDEO: The Super Mario movie they should have made

    By 16 March 2011

    The Super Mario Bros. film that was made in 1993 and stars Bob Hoskins has a score of 3.8 on IMDB. And that's because it's an absolute horror-show for your peepers, a perfect example of how not to make a movie of a video game. And whilst Joe Nicolosi's...

    This is the best YouTube vid that we've stumbled across in ages. It's the handy work of gaming sound guru Jake "virt" Kaufman, whose real work includes Red Faction Guerrilla, Batman: The Brave and the Bold and Contra 4. The "nextgen AAA" sounds certainly...

    VIDEO: Super Mario Bros - Kinect Stylee

    By 29 November 2010

    We've seen Kinect hacked to fulfil Star Wars fetishes. We've seen it modded to put on a virtual puppet show. We've even been blown away by a real-life, Minority Report-like, desktop gesture display. But we've not seen anyone hacking the latest gaming...

    If this video doesn't make your inner-geek sick with jealousy then you're either one of two things; totally heartless, or a loyal Sega heathen. We at Pocket-lint love the pudgy little plumber and only wish we had the dedication of 11-year-old Oscar Brown,...

    Look, we know that with Kinect you'll be able to play games by moving around, and there is even a face controlled game coming for the Nintendo DSi, but there is something charming about this hack-job from the clever so-and-sos at Waterloo Labs, who have...

    By 29 June 2010

    The Super Mario Bros. Android live wallpaper serves no purpose other than looking cool. Sure, it will probably eat your battery life quicker than you can say "but our princess is another castle" but it's worth it for the attention you'll get when you...
