Super Mario Bros. Pregnancy Announcement

You’re not going to find many pregnancy announcement videos here at Geeks of Doom, we promise (unless of course it’s for April Fools’ Day), but this was too good not to share. Most…”news”…outlets report on a pregnancy when it involves some Hollywood it couple or royalty, which is boring and unnecessary. This non-Hollywood couple decided to make their announcement in a much more entertaining way, that will no doubt make any geek smile.

The couple used the familiar first level of the classic Nintendo video game Super Mario Bros. to make the announcement, tweaking it a bit to fit their current life story and capping it off with the big news (spoiler alert?).

You can check out the video below.

The ‘Super Mario Bros.’ Secret You Might Not Have Known About The Past 30 Years

Super Mario Bros. Game Over Screen

I, like countless others, have the fondest of memories of my time spent playing Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo Entertainment System. So many have experienced similar grand times, and the game’s reputation is so great, in fact, that even some teens of today playing it for the very first time are well-aware of its existence and excited at the chance to try it.

But there’s also some bad memories, as well. More specifically, remembering all of those times we got to World 6 or 7 or even 8 after hours of trying, and then died on our final life, sending us back to the start again. As we learned of the various shortcuts this became a tad bit less painful, but still frustrating nevertheless.

But what if I told you there was a little secret Super Mario Bros. was hiding these past 30 years that would have made things much easier on us?

Super Smash Wars By James Farr

There are plenty of mash-up videos floating around the internet, many of them not worth viewing; but sometimes, a video can be done so remarkably well, it needs to be shared using a little “force.” Super Smash Wars is one such video.

In two parts, this fan-made creation by animator James Farr combines the epic adventure of Star Wars with many classic Nintendo properties including The Legend of Zelda, Mario Bros., and Metroid. Using cartoon-style illustrations with old-school video game sequence to sequence action, Super Smash Wars grabs hold of your inner child and refuses to let go. Sit back and prepare for awesomeness with this geek-filled extravaganza.

Be sure to continue below to watch the videos.

It Came From The Interwebs!

With a jetpack fueled by insomnia and an easily amused mind, It Came From The Interwebs scours and sifts through everything that has ever appeared on the internet (more or less) to find a few things that you should know about every week. These things come from the interwebs, hence the clever name.

This week, we return from a few days of getting lost in Tom Hiddleston’s eyes to bring you the vampire unicorn cyborg of web junk columns, featuring: the hip hop stylings of Jon Hamm, the meteorological rise of a prince, the gravitational fall of dominoes, and an Icelandic invasion.

Fatalities are a crucial part of the Mortal Kombat video game franchise; the graphic and gruesome death of an opponent by your own hands has been satisfying gamers for years and is still going strong today.

But have you ever wondered what the Fatality finishing move would be for other classic video game characters like Mario, Link, or Pacman? Well, my friends, that day has now come. A hilarious new video has been released showing off the lost “audition tapes” of many different classic game characters, who use familiar elements from their own games to brutally end the life of a Mortal Kombat opponent.

You can see the video right now by continuing on below.

Video Game Race

YouTube user Eyspire put together a video, called Ultimate Retro Running Race, of several classic video game characters having a race.

Watch the video here below.

The video clocks in just under 2 minutes, and shows some of our favorite video game characters racing against each other within several gaming scenarios with different gaming landscapes, all set to classic video game music. You’ll recognize Sonic the Hedgehog and Mario, as well as characters from Disney animation and Back To The Future, and many more.

This fan-made video, which Eyspire animated frame by frame, is a segmented portion of a larger satire series he says he’s working on.

Can you pick out all the video game characters in this video?

Must Watch: Mario Rules The Streets In This Awesome ‘Super Mario Bros.’ Creation

We’ve all played Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo Entertainment System, correct? If you have not, you should — these video game thingies are going to be huge someday. Anyway, someone decided to take Mario and his world to a whole new level with this great new video.

The idea is simple: take Super Mario Bros. and project it on some concrete and along a street. Why not?! Not only that, but it starts at the very beginning of the game and hauls ass straight through to the end using all of the super-secret tricks and transporting tube portals you have at your disposal. As the game plays out, someone with a camera walks along with the game, capturing the 8-Bit phenomena as it unfolds. Obviously the game was actually thrown into the footage after the fact, but you get the idea. Play along, damnit!

Eat your favorite mushroom (no, not that one…children) or flower or immortality star and flicker-skip to the other side to watch the video!
