World 1-1 of Super Mario Bros might be the most iconic level in all of video games, but the folks over at Blumasters thought the level could use a little updating.

When I was a kid back in the late Pleistocene Era, a video game was a different beastie. Instead of a Master Chief or a Samus Aran, you took the role of a faceless triangle or square, shooting straight-line lasers at blocky enemies, or perhaps deflecting a square with a straight-line. If you wanted to get really complicated, sometimes there would be TWO squares involved. These days, even the downloadable games for your cellphone have marketable characters with distinct personalities. My daughter’s is still quite enamored of a certain yellow avian who, due to his distinct battle cry, she has dubbed Ray-Ray. For me, thanks to hours spent in front of a PS-2, I still have a soft spot in my heart for budding psychopath Tommy Vercetti and his hideous aquamarine Hawaiian shirt.

The game is out now, but if you haven’t seen what the cheerleader/zombie/hack-n-slash game is all about, there is a trailer that features some gameplay for you to check out.
The Legend of Zelda may be one of the most beloved game franchises ever, but compared to other games, LoZ merchandise has been relatively hard to find. This is why I’m overjoyed to see that someone is finally creating a Link action figure that his highly detailed, highly articulated, and arrives in October!
Ever since I got my hands on the prop replica Portal gun, everyone in the Major Spoilers HQ has been begging – Nay, demanding that we create some funky cool fan film. I think the guys behind Portal: Terminal Velocity beat us to it.
