Corrupted Super Mario 64 Is Super Trippy
Here’s some footage from a really tripped out/corrupted Super Mario 64 cartridge. It’s fun to watch and overall insane, and I’d love to actually play a version that runs this damaged. Peep the video below:
Play As Classic Snake in MGS V: Ground Zeroes
This new trailer for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes reveals an exclusive PlayStation mission titled “Deja Vu,” in which players can play as the original classic Snake. Completely untouched by next-gen graphics, the original Snake looks hilarious and adds a nice exclusive feature to those with Sony consoles.
iPhone 5c With Pokemon Influence
Apple’s iPhone 5c has a vibrant choice of coloring, which makes it difficult to choose which sole phone you’d like to use in the line. Now, thanks to artist George Michael Brower, it might be an even harder choice with these Pokemon-inspired mockups. Totally rad artwork! You can head over to Brower’s site to download these wallpapers as stickers for free here.
Mega Man Stop-Motion Animation Done Completely With Glass Tiles
This amazing stop-motion video was created by YouTube user FinalCutKing, who used over 1,000 glass tiles and 10,000 photos to make this two-minute video. It’s a cool video and an amazing feat to put such time and effort into this project for the love of Mega Man and film making. Definitely holds charm.
Mario Does René Magritte
Here are a series of pixel art creations, depicting Mario mimicking portraits and paintings created by Belgian surrealist artist, René Magritte. The art was created by Deviant Artist, Breshvic Penicillin, who also recently opened up a Society6 account to purchase each Mario/Magritte print. Peep his Tumblr for more.

Batman Is Getting A New Arcade Game And It Looks Pretty Awesome
Bummed about the lack of Batmobile action in Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City? Well hopefully this will make up for it. Spectacular Action and Raw Thrills will be putting out an all new Batman arcade game this November where players will get pilot a wide variety of Batmobiles such as the 60’s TV and Tumbler incarnations and even the Batwing!
Players can save their progress via a PIN pad and multiple machines can even be hooked up for multiplayer action, but we’re not sure if this is a straight-up racing game, or something more Crazy Taxi-esque with an open world and multiple missions.
Keep an eye out at your local arcade (they still exist!) this November.

Disney Shuts Down Warren Spector’s Junction Point Studios
Disney tried its hardest to relaunch their beloved Mickey Mouse character into the video game realm, but I guess it just didn’t cut it. After Epic Mickey 2 flopped pretty hard, Disney decided to shut down its Warren Spector-headed game studios, Junction Point Studios.
The original title was a Wii exclusive, and sold over 2.8 million since its release, but the multiplatform sequel only sold 1.1 million.
A spokeswoman from the company released a statement about the closure:
It was with much sadness that we informed our teams today of changes to our Games organization, which include the closure of Junction Point Studios. These changes are part of our ongoing effort to address the fast-evolving gaming platforms and marketplace and to align resources against our key priorities. We’re extremely grateful to Warren Spector and the Junction Point team for their creative contributions to Disney with Disney Epic Mickey and Disney Epic Mickey 2.
Warren Spector hasn’t commented.
