This may be our second reference to "Still Alive" (aka "that song from Portal") in as many weeks, but some things can't be helped. This time the song is parodied by Rob Balder, and tells the woes of an end boss that Nintendo fans might be more familiar with. That's right, the song features none oth...

Turns out, there might be a glitch in that copy of Super Mario Galaxy you've been playing. During an encounter with Bowser in the game, one person found that they could knock Bowser off of the planet they were engaging him on, freaking out the camera and causing the game to halt all progress. Ho...

Having a wife that indulges you in your obsession with gaming is nice, but one that participates in said obsession is even better. Hence, we have these two lovely pumpkins, carved by reader Colleen and her husband (unless his name is Colleen, which we've never heard before), they're some of the mo...

This fanart is so powerful that it seems to have crushed the Warp Pipe forums under the weight of its own pile of Diggs. We can understand why-- we've certainly been enjoying staring at it for a few hours. The full image is after the break, but even in the detail shown above, you can see the insan...

This awesome picture made the Digg front page, and for good reason. It's a shame we don't see Toad anywhere. Thanks to commenter Borman, we now know the origins of the sketch (later colored by other forum members) come from the Neo-Geo forums by an artist named hermegildo. Check out the highlights ...

Continuing the focus on Bowser, the Dojo has updated, showing off Bowser's Final Smash. Unlike Link's and Pikachu's, Bowser's Final Smash sees him transforming into the monstrosity you see above. In this form, Bowser hands out beatings like the Santa at the mall hands out candy canes during Christ...

Today's Dojo update brings us images and the character profile for the game's resident tank character Bowser. If there's one thing we can say after seeing today's update, it's that Bowser looks amazing. Seriously, look at that character model above. Do you not cower in fear? We do, oh how we do. C...

Just as we were talking about the difficulty of scoring Nintendo merchandise, this auction pops up on eBay. With bobblehead figurines of Luigi, Mario, Bowser and Yoshi, we find ourselves wishing we had quicker reflexes, as the auction has already closed. All figurines ended up going to one lucky i...

In honor of Father's Day, we thought we'd ask a themed question: Who's your favorite father and son/daughter team? Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr., or, uh, hmm. Oh, how about Bowser and the Koopa Kids? Pac-Man and Baby Pac-Man? Pitfall Harry and Harry Jr. from Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure? Man, w...

A Livejournal group called "Bento Challenge," which is devoted to making festive Japanese-style lunches in recognizable shapes, is doing a "game characters" theme this week. And, as you may expect, that means a lot of Nintendo. In Soviet Russia Japan, you eat Kirby! We posted the Kirby because it'...

Reader Jason wrote in to show us a pair of tattoos he has gracing his body, on each of his ankle's to be precise. He told us he had read another story showcasing another sweet gaming tattoo and felt his would be appreciated. Oh, they are! We've never seen such sweet Mario and Bowser tattoos before....

With only a few months to go before the release of Super Mario Galaxy, expectations couldn't be higher for Nintendo's flagship hero. The title was recently confirmed for release this year, leaving our Nunchuk thumbs quivering in anticipation. Mario is carrying a lot of weight on his shoulders, howe...

There's a new microsite for Mario Strikers Charged. There is little more than a promo video and some boxart at present, but more is apparently on the way. We got a quick look at the game last month, and thought it seemed pretty fun, particularly in multiplayer. The game will feature online play, th...

Subscribers to Nintendo's mailing list received a classy invitation to Bowser and Peach's wedding early this morning. Posing for a photo to promote Super Paper Mario's release, the groom looks none too happy about the event. If the crossed arms and eye-contact avoidance aren't indication enough of ...

Modojo's Ryan Morgan took a trip into the underworld of DS games, finding the meanest of the mean villains and delivering stern warnings about them. These aren't the everyday spiny, cloaked, "NOOOOOOO"-bellowing villains we know, the kind that telegraph their evilness to the world, but some more ins...

Gentlemen, CountBlockula, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world's first bionic koopa. Bowser will be that koopa. Better than he was before. Better...stronger...faster. Check out the highlights for this weekend: Joystiquery Joystiq hands-on: Mad Catz A...

Mario Hoops 3 on 3 has had so much hype that we were ready for a game full of more fun than a circus. But from the sound of it, all we got were peanuts. Having played the game ourselves, we see where the review is coming from and we are 100% catching what they are throwing -- something Mario and his...

Some videos popped up yesterday over at IGN showcasing several different situations the portly plumber might get himself into in his travels of eating mushrooms and balancing on ropes over lava pits in New Super Mario Bros. The first video even shows Mario duking it out with the big bad Bowser ...

IGN has posted a list that is sure to generate some grumbling. But that's what's to be expected anytime you try to cram the baddest evildoers into a list of ten. Here goes: #10 - Bowser (Super Mario) #9 - Dr. Robotnik (Sonic) #8 - Dracula (Castlevania) #7 - Evil Otto (Berzerk) #6 - Psyc...
