The original Super Mario Bros. came out 30 years ago. Think on that: for some of you, Mario has been a constant: always there, always playable, and always saving a princess. The game has been through seven generations of video game consoles and more besides, and now Nintendo is giving you the chance to take control of the level design, and create the most evil, messed up platform hell ever created. Or a fun joyride–it’s your choice. If you’ve not yet heard of Super Mario Maker, then perhaps it’s time to sit up and pay attention.

The Blue Marble has never looked so pretty as it does in these images. Shared on Imgur, the images show relief maps of continents around the world, wonderfully illuminated by pockets of light.
South Africa is pictured too, but a local has concerns about the validity of the image.
This gorgeous picture of South Africa is not real. We don't have electricity. pic.twitter.com/X7cNTrBiff

Have a look at 10 of our favourite images of the Earth at Night.
In this age of smartwatches, ThinkGeek takes us back to a more elegant, analogue time with their splendid steampunk chronometer, the Tesla Watch. Complete with a weathered-brass look, leather strapping, a wind-up mechanism, and vacuum tube-style LEDs, it’s sure to get people asking you what time it is.
It can be bought from ThinkGeek for USD59.00.

Submerged is a PS4 game from the same team of developers and artists who worked on Bioshock (but not the same studio). The game’s claim to fame is that you can go about it at your own pace. I paddle about a sunken city and climb some buildings to bring you this review.
Devil’s Third by Valhalla Studios is one of those games that was heavily anticipated, probably because it’s unusual to see an over-the-top violent game like it on a Nintendo console. The game has had a troubling history, what with game engine shifts and publishers shutting down. Still, it’s here now, and we’ve gone a few rounds with Ivan to see what the devil is up.
Given the content of Bryan Fuller’s artistically gruesome series Hannibal, it’s hard to imagine it in a humourous way (moreso considering NBC has has lost its appetite for it). However, Hannibal is proved to be quite the comedian in this series of GIFs. Watch as our favourite serial killer/culinarian delivers some cheesy jokes. They’re killer.
The French creative director captures various paints, oils, milk, honey, and cinnamon as they swirl together. It’s a beautiful mess of mixed emotions.
“The Colors of Feelings” is an experimental dreamlike video rocking us smoothly through circular moves. It is also an analogy of feelings such as anger, love, sadness and joy ; they mix and eventually ease.
Check out The Colors of Feelings below.
I saw this yesterday but still can’t believe it. Because using a conventional surfboard is too pedestrian for Robbie Maddison, the freestyle motocross rider decided to catch some waves atop a modified dirt bike. He transitions from land to sea with ease and speed, and rides a sizeable wave in Tahiti like it ain’t no thang.
Check out Maddison’s crazy Pipe Dream below.
Marvel’s twelfth film in its Cinematic Universe is Ant-Man, and it follows on from The Avengers: Age of Ultron in a sort of tangential manner. Ant-Man himself is far less well-known to non-comic buffs than other Avengers, or even the Fantastic Four. Let’s see how well the miniature hero stacks up against the bigger names.
