Every day here at Doom HQ we receive tons of tips from our readers about really cool stuff from the world of geek, as well as promotional materials for new films, comic books, collectibles, and much more. While we do our best to bring you as much of it as possible, we don’t always have enough geek manpower available to cover it all on a daily basis. But we hate the idea of all of this really cool stuff wasting away in our inbox. How could we NOT cover it? Hence why we’ve resurrected our long-defunct column Bits Of Doom, now rebranded and revamped as Doom Digest, a collection of easily digestible bits of news, videos, photos, and other goodies.
Today: Red Letter Media targets Prometheus, Spidey plays basketball in The Amazing Spider-Man, what Taxi Driver would be like today, an exploding Rubix Cube shirt, and footage from the would-be game Super Modern Mario Bros., plus Bits Of Doom.

To end today’s edition of Doom Digest, here’s a video from Blumasters called Super Modern Mario Bros., a quick video showing what an updated Super Mario Bros. game would look like. Pretty amusing. By the way, when I see or hear anything Super Mario Bros., I get all tingly.
