The New Super Mario Busters - Featuring Sonic - Go Into Action

More cameos and insanity to enjoy

Earlier this year we posted a video called Super Mario Busters, which was a new creation from YouTube user James Farr.

This Is The Star Fox Movie We Want Hollywood To Make

Behind the scenes on a fan-made masterpiece

We've already seen how Nintendo games can get the Gritty Reboot treatment, but this latest fan-made video is going for a truly epic feel — and makes us wish that Pixar and Nintendo could join forces to make Star Fox: The Movie with Joe Morrisseau, George Hernandez, Jesus Martinez, Jeff Barruga and...

Check out that fabric

We do like to show you some awesome collectibles and figurines when they emerge, as sometimes they can be difficult to ignore. The Legend of Zelda is a franchise that gets its fair share of desirable decorations, one example being that from Max Factory, which we showed you last year. That was nice, but a Skyward Sword-style...

It's a Fighting Robot Controlled By a Famicom Controller

Step aside, R.O.B.

Video game enthusiasts are often wonderful people, in that they'll do something unspeakably cool and awesome simply because they feel like it; that's why we rather adore quite a lot of video game culture. We also like anything that fuses modern technology with retro gadgets, which is exactly what this Japanese genius has done...

Well her name is in the title, after all

All for one lucky little girl

Earlier today we posted an article on The Electus 64 II Mini, a handheld Nintendo 64 that resembles a glossy, chunky Game Boy. And rather like London buses (wait for an eternity and two come at the same time), we've been directed to an arcade cabinet that plays NES games — just like the handheld N64, that's actual...

Possibly the Most Legendary Zelda Cake Ever

Seriously, this is ridiculous

Some video game fans, particularly those in the Nintendo camp, sure go to a lot of trouble to demonstrate just how much they love their chosen games or franchises.

Try the Ryu opening

Some say video games are violent, to which the response is often "yep, as are TV and films". Without getting dragged into a debate, we've found a product that is arguably as violent as anything else, it's the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Chess Set. Chess? Violent? You bet, it's a game where minions are sent to their slaughter...

Another classic Nintendo Direct moment

Use the ekto-thingy-majig

YouTube is a home for many lovingly-crafted fan creations, whether real-life dramatisations, animations or someone sounding off in front of a camera about the latest big thing. Some of its gaming content is rather neat, with production values often going beyond humble origins; one example of this is the animated cartoon...
