Gaming Heroes with Beards

As the average gamer’s age has increased, so too should the maturity of the average gaming hero…  At least, that’s what the Examiner’s David Stonecipher claims when he tried to explain why he felt the urge show the world what some of gaming’s most iconic characters would look like with giant beards…

I really don’t think there’s anything else to say about this, do you?

Super Mario Bros Crossover – BEST. CROSSOVER. EVER.

What could be better than playing Super Mario Bros on NES?  Playing through Super Mario Bros as Mega Man!  Exploding Rabbit has made the best flash game ever.  In “Super Mario Bros. Crossover”, retro game fans can play through the original Super Mario Bros using iconic NES characters; the roster includes Link, Samus, Mega Man, Simon Belmont OR Bill from Contra. (Also Mario, but who wants to do that?)

At first glance, the idea might not seem that inventive.  Right now, you’re probably saying; “Changing appearances?  That’s not so great.”  Well, in Super Mario Bros Crossover, each character has their own abilities – Mega Man can shoot and Slide, Simon Belmont can use a whip and throw axes, and so on.  In other words, playing through as each character is a unique experience.

It’s awesome.  Go play it.
