In the run up to Super Mario Galaxy 2's big launch later this month, Nintendo has been releasing a steady stream of nostalgia-caked media on the game. And while we don't tell you about each and every one (there's a handful of trailers right here, for instance), we do try and point out the ones tha...

While it's unbelievably tempting to litter this piece with allusions to the various Mario and Luigi properties, we're instead going to bite our tongues and tell the story of some less-than-gentlemanly gents who beat and robbed a NYC cabbie at 4AM on November 1. According to police reports, the cabb...

After seeing Snake, Raiden and Kratos in Soul Calibur IV's Character Creation mode, we knew it was inevitable other fan favorites would soon arrive as well. As you can see above, two very famous plumbers were painstakingly recreated for your viewing pleasure. This site managed to collect even more...

We're going to make this one simple. Which Italian plumber brother do you prefer: Mario, or Luigi? We think that Luigi is infinitely more likable, in all his goofball glory. On the other hand, he is more of a "damsel" in distress type that Mario has to constantly bail out of trouble. Even so, we're...

When Japan-based 4cr staffer and elementary school teacher Vinnk tried using the Mario universe to teach his young students the English words for family members, he can't have been expecting a lesson of his own on the Mario family tree from a classroom of six-year-olds. That's exactly what he did ge...

We recently brought up the never-ending case discussion again, because, like so many of our readers, we just can't find that perfect bag that really reflects how we feel about the DS. That's why we love it when readers let us know they've taken matters into their own hands. We like to live vicario...

Sometimes, you just can't decide which fandom you want to pursue at any given time, especially when we're talking about an occasion like Halloween. There are just too many options! You know you've toyed with ideas like "Its-a me, Sparta Mario," or "Touching Mrs. Tingle." Well, one reader decided t...

Is this not the cutest frickin' iPod case you've ever seen? Martha Wozniak knits not only these Luigi-themed cozies, but Mario and Princess Peach pouches as well. If only they could fit a Nintendo DS, that would be perfect! We're sure that many of you would gladly pay a king's ransom to secure one ...

We don't actually know what the fragrance in these Mario and Luigi air fresheners is. We assume it's fresher than the scent of not an air freshener, at least. Strangely, the product information for these air fresheners doesn't include what they smell like. If it turns out that they smell like a gu...

We're not sure how the folks at PETA came to the decision to rip off Nintendo for a flash game about chicken cruelty, but we can only figure it's a byproduct of the make-your-own-Mario trend at Joystiq, so that means Super Chick Sisters is really Joystiq's fault. Way to go, guys. When it's law...

It's easy to forget that brothers Mario and Luigi actually have day jobs, since they're so busy driving go karts, smashing mushrooms, and playing dress-up, but this shirt serves as a reminder that the dynamic duo can also take care of those pesky U-bend clogs for you. If they were real, we would t...

Well, folks, this is likely to be the very last week for Mii Spotlight. It's been fun while it lasted, and this week, we thought we'd check out some of the Miis that have been sent in over time but were never used -- either because there wasn't an appropriate theme edition, or they were received a...
