Random Video of the Day: Марио проти&#10

Here's an odd one I found via Patrick Klepek's blog, push.the.button. Of it, he says "Possessed, likely high Russian animators pit Pac-Man against a poor, naked Mario (I'm serious)." And it's pretty accurate. Mind, it's not graphic nudity or anything, but if bare cartoon bottoms bother you, then you may want to refrain from watching. On an interestingly-timed related note, Game Informer (via GoNintendo) reports that the new Guinness World Records 2010: Gamer's Edition says in the category of "Most Recognized Video Game Character:" "Mario? Sonic? Mega Man? Nope, it's Namco's very own Pac-Man. 94 percent of American consumers recognize the pellet-gobbler, edging out Nintendo's plumber by just one percent." I remember when Mario was more recognized than Mickey Mouse, so how did this happen? The most memorable thing Pac-Man has done since the 80's is Pac-Man: Championship Edition.

But for developers, "it's not changing how much money you're bringing in; it really doesn't change what we're focused on." He adds that the thinks it creates opportunity for a lot of different developers. Read More

Rumor: Are the Ice Climbers Ready to Rock n' Roll?

The release of Super Smash Bros. Melee saw one very unexpected addition to its roster... or, should I say two? Nana and Popo, known collectively as the Ice Climbers, made their first appearance since the earliest days of the NES, where they starred in 1985's appropriately-titled Ice Climber. Fun fact: In some countries in Europe, the game actually came with the NES. Is it any wonder Nintendo had a harder time developing a foothold over there? Read More
