So A Typhoon Renamed ‘Nintendo’ to ‘intendo’, So Sayeth Mother Nature…

Twitter / 

Typhoon. Noun. According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a typhoon is “a hurricane occurring especially in the region of the Philippines or the China sea”. One might want to add — that based on current events — that typhoons hold grudges against the House of Mario and Donkey Kong. And Metroid and Zelda and Pikmin and Kirby and Animal Crossing and Pokemon and Star Tropics and Kid Icarus and Star Fox and…..

New ‘Super Mario Bros.’ World Record Claimed by Only .05 Seconds

It appears that speedrunner Kosmic has shaved off the record time for completing the 1985 NES classic Super Mario Bros. by three frames, according to the above video and tweet he posted earlier this week.  Kosmic earlier stated this past Friday that he beat the Darbian’s then-current world record in Super Mario Bros. by a single frame, but later reserved that claim after detecting a “lag frame” earlier in the run. Kuddos for honesty! Continue reading “New ‘Super Mario Bros.’ World Record Claimed by Only .05 Seconds”

Twitter Feud Leads to Match between Will Ospreay and Big Van Vader!

Just so you know, Will Ospreay and Ricochet had an amazingly athletic and physical match during New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Best of the Super Juniors tournament back in May (highlights in the video above), however there are many detractors who isolated the “overly acrobatic” parts and accused the two of killing the business.  You’d think by now that things have more or less cooled down, but not when Vader is one of the match’s most vocal critics. Keep in mind that Vader is an American wrestler who went to Japan (after being a recurring character on Boy Meets World) and performed quite a few moonsaults himself; that’s right Vader, Pepperidge Farms remembers, as do we wrestling fans…  Well, after Ospreay and Vader went back-and-forth on Twitter, it looks like they’re about to lock horns in the squared circle in English wrestling promotion Revolution Pro pretty soon.

Awaiting the Return of the Swiss Superman! Cesaro’s Coming Back!

A lot of pro wrestlers have gotten hurt in the last year — specifically in WWE, John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Sting, Seth Rollins, Nikki Bella, Tyson Kid, etc. — however the addition of the “Swiss Superman” Cesaro on the IR was pretty painful. It seemed like only yesterday in November 2015 when it appeared that WWE was giving him the push he deserved, he went down with a shoulder injury. His recovery timetable was announced as 4-6 months, but the good news is that estimate was giving FOUR MONTHS AGO!! Continue reading “Awaiting the Return of the Swiss Superman!

Why @WWESubway is the Perfect Wrestling GIF Account…

I’m both very happy and very confused that this has become a thing. It’s one of those things that can only happen on the internet and makes you debate on whether you should laugh or groan in anguish over its absurdity. Ladies and gentlemen, late last year, a new, special Twitter account was born, @WWESubway, which features a series of reaction GIFs taken from the professional wrestling world, and applied to every/anything that could happen to you at a Subway. We finally did it, folks; everyone can go home… Enjoy. Continue reading “Why @WWESubway is the Perfect Wrestling GIF Account…”

IT’S HAPPENING!!!

So…Cottonelle is Following NXT’s Enzo & Big Cass Because REASONS!!

God, is professional wrestling weird or what? Well, after Wendy’s delivered some sick burns to Zack Ryder, NXT favourites Enzo Amore and Big Cass made friends with toiler paper brand Cottonelle because…well, aforementioned REASONS. Check out the tweets and screengrabs after the break chronicling this saga, because a toilet paper brand-based alliance with a rising tag team is strange, but it’s still FAR from being the weirdest thing in the history of wrestling.  Hi there, Dungeon of Doom!

At One Time, You Could Play These Classic Games in Twitter; YES, You Heard That Right…

Nope, I am NOT pulling your leg, joshing you nor fooling you. Before Twitter decided to play the role of Sir Buzz Killington, you could have headed straight to Twitter, and try to run through the original Prince of Persia and other MS-DOS games like the good ol’ days of PC gaming! But hey, you can still play these awesome classics over (like Maniac Mansion, … Continue reading At One Time, You Could Play These Classic Games in Twitter; YES, You Heard That Right…

Wanna Coach College Football? Cite “Madden” As Experience!

Well, I guess you can’t say that playing video games CAN’T get you anywhere in the “real world” now! Christopher McComas confidently believes that, thanks to years of playing the Madden and NCAA Football franchises on Sega Genesis and PlayStation consoles, he can lead the University of North Dakota to college football immortality. His coaching philosophy? “Chuck the pigskin.” Chuck it some more. “Never Punt.” Relentless defense.  What it comes down to is that McComas found the vacant position on Twitter indicating that UND was looking for a new head football coach and thought to himself, I’m going to have some fun with them. He wrote this letter to UND athletic director Brian Faison expressing his interest in the position and provided his qualifications, said years of playing Madden and NCAA Football.
