A dedicated Super Mario Bros 3 fan from Norway has recreated the Super Mario Bros 3 map entirely out of yarn. The epic feat took the man six years to fully complete the World 1 map from the iconic video game. Kjetil Nordin, who is 31, says that it is “very emotional, fun and weird to have finished. It has taken such a long time.” You can check out plenty of images of the masterpiece, right here.
“The hardest thing has been to accept that it took such a long time. I’ve spent 800 hours crocheting and many hours researching and searching for the correct yarn.
“When the water was half way finished I saw that I had chosen the wrong shade of blue. It was almost purple, and very ugly, so I had to undo all of it. That took an extra week.”

Nintendo UK is confident that they will be able to pull in those Nintendo fans who have yet to purchase a Wii U with its new colourful new IP, Splatoon. Nintendo UK marketing manager Chandra Nair believes that the game will appeal to those Nintendo fans still on the fence about buying the struggling console and could well result in improved sales for Nintendo’s current home console.

I have long-awaited the next-gen arrival of Dark Souls 2, and last night I finally got my first taste. I’m only in the games infancy but so far it’s every bit the exacting, punishing and glorious adventure as it’s predecessors. The world of Drangleic is as unique and atmospheric as any I have experienced in recent memory.

There is more story here than in the original title, but it’s not so much that it takes away from the games masterful mystery world. I have only but scratched the surface, but I am excited to charge on.
