16) Starfox video
This home-made sketch is about Fox and the intergalactic gang having trouble coming up with the rent for their squalid student flat. Features some spectacularly awful cosplay, and a location that looks like it could use a good cleaning/fumigation. Predictably, Slippy’s a bit of a tool. Ahh, game characters in the real world – is there no end to your comedy potential?
17) Mega Man goodies
Celebrating Mega Man’s 15th anniversary, these promotional items are available from Capcom’s Japanese store. If anyone figures out how to get them to ship to this country, let us know. There’s a slim chance they might be released here in time for the 20th anniversary, by which time we might have completed Mega Man 9.
18) Cupcake horror
No doubt these Mario and Luigi carrot cupcakes are delicious, but why do they look like the brothers are drowning? Those ‘moustaches’ on their faces make them look like they’ve surfaced under something particularly unsavoury. Ewww.
19) Gunpei Yokoi papercraft
One of the stranger papercraft models we’ve seen. Cut out and assemble these pieces to build a 3D cartoon caricature of Game Boy creator Gunpei Yokoi. Get your template here.
20) Mario cartoon
Seth MacFarlane, the bloke behind the Family Guy cartoon series, has turned his hand to videogame parodies on YouTube. Check it out, it’s, erm… not as funny as Family Guy. Makes us want to eat burgers, though, for some reason.
