Super Mario And Then Some

There’s quite alot going on in this video. I have to say, it’s super well done, I bet it took them alot of time to get it all working. Then again, there’s not much else to do during quarantine, so making super ace videos of video games and stuff like this is a great way to pass the time.

Secrets of Super Mario 64

With the advent of emulators, and being able to mess around with the underlying game code we’re able to learn all sorts of new interesting stuff about games.  I also find it interesting that people spend the time to dissect the game to find these little inconsistencies.

One such person is YouTube user UncommentatedPannen, he’s uploaded dozens of videos detailing the little parts of Super Mario 64.  It’s super interesting all of the research and effort he spent analyzing the level and finding this slope that’s just slightly off to cause the coins to spawn wrong.

People like make things Burn

Why anyone would design this type of level is beyond me.  But, according to Destructoid, it took 46 hours to beat it.  I’m not sure if that’s from the creator, or just some random twitch streamer.  Either way, that’s too long, stop being crazy.

Super Mario Blanket

Mario Blanket 1

After spending over 6 years, Kjetil Nordin has completed a crochet version of World 1 from Super Mario Bros. 3.  It’s pretty insane, it’s just about 7 foot by 6 foot in dimensions, and it’s pretty detailed.  It’s so detailed that when he noticed that the shade of blue he started the water with was wrong, he undid it all, adding an additional week to the process.  Now that is dedication.

I think it’s pretty cool, he obviously can’t sell it, but he can make a few more of them and start up the entire game if he wanted.  But at the current rate, according to reddit, it would take him between 45 and 130 years.  Hopefully he has some other day job.

Super Mario Maker is Crazy

I’ve never played the game, but I know enough about it to want to get a chance to play it.  Nintendo’s Super Mario Maker on the Wii U has some impressive user-created levels.  Granted, Nintendo themselves have made some pretty damn impossible levels, but these user-created ones are a step above.  They aren’t so much as levels, more of perfect frame by frame jumps and using the elements to your advantage.  They’re fun to watch though, which is why I embedded two videos here:
