This is quite possibly one of my all-time favorite videogame related videos. First appearing on tudou.com, this hacked ROM of the original NES game “Super Mario Bros.,” titled “Super Mario Forever,” found its fame when an unknown and extremely vulgar gamer narrated over the entire clip. While I was saddened to learn that it wasn’t actually him playing, it’s still funny as $% and deserves to be pulled from DDN video vault and given new life.
If this video doesn’t leave your sides splitting and your face sore from laughing your ass off, then you’re either Ben Stein or an animated flesh-craving meat bag, better known as a zombie.

What you see is a short machinima film by Australian artist Thuyen Nguyen. He calls it a love letter to video games and it is just that. This is why we game, these are the emotions we feel and some of the great moments we remember. In a world where gaming can be considered a stigma a film like this serves to remind us gamers that what we do is not only not bad, its artistic, creative, human.
Lets all take a moment to remember why we love video games, and while we are at it show some love to those who go out of their way to set us back in track.

Machinima is becoming quite a busy field lately, with tools becoming every more accessible to creators we can enjoy such delights as the G-man prancing around a mountain of TV’s. Machinima allows us to indulge ourselves in the pleasures only old time aristocrats could. Minus the opium, most of the time. But virtual jackassery aside, there are some projects out there that show much more depth and elaboration. The Complex is one of them.
The AV Club (yes, like that bastion of geek culture) has been gearing up to produce a live Machinima show. Using Valve’s Source engine they have created a group of sets where they can perform their live shows. The Complex is based around an apartment building, and may or may not contain recipes for cooking headcrabs.
