Space Style to Fulfill Your Curiosity

NASA’s Curiosity rover recently made history as it successfully touched down on the planet Mars after being launched 10 months ago from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Back to School Supplies That Will Have Them Looking Forward To Heading Back

“Back to school.” Depending on whether you’re the parent or the student, these three little words are either met with anticipation or dread. While we can all agree that there’s nothing appealing about the sound of an alarm clock going off at dawn or the frenzy of the parent pick-up line, shopping for new school supplies is usually pretty fun for everyone.

Go 8-Bit for the New Super Mario Bros. 2 Release

A brand new video game is rolling out of Nintendo headquarters in just a few weeks. The New Super Mario Bros. 2, exclusive to the 3DS, will released on August 19. The game sees Mario making his way to Bowser’s castle yet again to rescue the kidnapped Princess Peach, only this time, Mario’s ultimate challenge will be to collect some mega coins along the way (one million, to be exact).

Excited gamers can call dibs now for the hot new game at online stores like Amazon and GameStop (who is also throwing some exclusive swag with each advanced purchase)!

Although much of the newest installment is reminiscent of the original Super Mario Bros, it’s plain to see Mario has certainly grown over the years (and we don’t mean by way of a red mushroom)! The first Super Mario Bros, which burst out onto the video game scene 27 years ago, saw our heroic plumber as a simple 8-bit character, a big difference from today’s high- flying 2.5D golden Mario! And even though he’s been doubling in graphics ever since, the star of one of the best-selling video games of all time still has a special place in our video game playing hearts.

If you still love retro Mario as much as we do, here’s a look at a few pixelated products that gets back to bit basics.
