Top 20 Nintendo Happenings

Feature: The world as God Nintended it

Hats off to daredevil Remi - the second entry in this month's 20 snippets of Nintendo-related online strangeness. There's simply not enough blatant disregard for life and law in the world of gaming fandom.

Next time you spot something similar on the M1 or somewhere like that, grab a video on your mobile phone and send it our way.

PLUSH INVADERS
These fluffy 8-bit tributes are called bitz pixellated palz - perfect for your belated celebrations of Space Invaders' 30th anniversary (or early celebration of the 31st). Link

THE REAL MARIO KART
Marvel at some super daredevil antics as a fearless French guy dons the Mario suit, hops in a kart and heads onto the open road to play with the traffic. Link

Zoom

RETRO3D
With any luck some game designers have been studying these stunning 3D images. Expect to see at least a couple of games with a similar artistic style popping up over the next year or two. Link

HEMP-MOTE
Nintendo could finally earn a bit of approval from environmental charities if they replaced their toxic white plastic with planet-saving hemp. No more sweaty remotes flying out of careless hands either - that stuff looks grippy! Link

WII SMASH
Remote goes through screen - again. The great thing about this video is just how upset the unfortunate guy is after destroying his lovely LCD. Ahh, schadenfreude. Link

ART OF MARIO
This brilliant picture is made by compositing various images and painting over them digitally to give a consistent look. It's like a sneak peek at a Wii 2 game. Link

Zoom

MII BUSINESS CARDS
For just 150 Nintendo points you can get a set of custom business cards emblazoned with your Mii face - if you live in Japan. Hopefully they'll bring this idea to other territories some day (but don't count on it). Link

MARIO SHOES
Brilliant or horrible? We couldn't quite decide, and opted not to put in a bid for these customised shoes, as sold on eBay. Just as well, because they went for over $100 - that's more expensive than all the NGamer team's shoes put together!

Zoom

HOUSEHOLD GAMES
Assorted retro gems remade using household items such as pizzas, salt shakers and unidentifiable bits of coloured stuff. We thoroughly approve of the massive amount of time wasted to make this video.

SONY DS MOD
For everyone who's ever wondered if the DS would look nicer rebadged as a Sony Vaio PC, here's your answer - it doesn't. But the effect is very convincing, and this skilled Japanese modder has interesting step-by-step photos of the whole process on his website. Link
