I mean, he's big Mario, so he clearly took some shrooms, which might explain why he thinks he can break bricks with his head to get gold coins.

I can't run around and do flips and stuff, so seeing other people who can is a nice way to kill a few minutes on the Internet, but oh man I love this Super Mario Bros. parkour video so much. It has guys dressed as Mario and Luigi, and the graphics are as impressive as the parkour. Enjoy.

    We already love the PBS YouTube shows Idea Channel and Off Book, so it's no surprise we like their new one Game/Show as well.

The first episode has host Jamin Warren explain the endurance of Mario, Sonic, and Link as characters. We love this. A lot.

    Thank You, Mario, But You Can’t Afford the Down Payment on the Princess’s Castle

    You know, Princess Peach really should be a more active character in the Mario series. After all, according to your favorite fictional castle cost calculators over at Movoto, the lady is ridiculous kinds of loaded. Exactly how loaded is that, you ask? Natalie Griegson estimated just how expensive the castle from Super Mario 64 would actually be in real currency, and yeah, it's a lot. What else would you expect from somebody who seemingly runs an entire kingdom?

    Nintendo to Release Free-to-Play Game That’s Somehow Not Mario or Pokémon

    A day after they spilled new information on many upcoming titles with their E3 Direct presentation, Nintendo still had something new up their sleeve. CEO Satoru Iwata mentioned in a Q&A with press yesterday that Nintendo have another project in the works -- a free-to-play game. Free-to-play games are all the rage these days, with titles like Team Fortress 2 and League of Legends finding massive success. While Nintendo is not a company that is always keen on capitalizing on current industry trends, this is one it turns out they apparently want to get in on. And really, who wouldn't want a Nintendo game you can play for free?

    Mario and Luigi Finally Get the Professional Help They So Clearly Need [Video]

    Brothers fight, sure, but some brothers have more to fight about than others. As far as family issues, go, Mario and Luigi probably have their fair share. They're always trying to grab the same power-ups, battle the same villains, and, of course, save the same Princess. Sometimes, it's bound to feel like the Mushroom Kingdom just isn't big enough for two Mario Brothers. In the latest episode of their new webseries Shrinkage, SCTV takes a look at the emotional toll their decades long rivalry has taken on these two noble plumbers, and it's pretty entertaining.
