Someone actually completed this insane Super Mario puzzle

TwitterFacebook

Within that box sits 1,000 puzzle pieces and roughly 500 of them are nearly identical. Somehow, somebody managed to put them all together.

For Super Mario Day 2017, ThinkGeek released the above 1,000-piece puzzle, and Reddit user HardAngelFan completed it a couple months later. The title of their post: "I used to love puzzles. Never. Again."

Here is the completed puzzle:

Who thought it was a good idea to make 50% of a 1,000-piece puzzle the same color?

Sure, the background isn't exactly solid red — there are some diagonal gray lines to assist in the piece-matching process — but come on. Imagine finishing the right half and then staring at that menacing pile of red pieces, hours of work standing between you and completion. Read more...

Nintendo hid a copy of the NES game ‘Golf’ on every Switch

TwitterFacebook

In the long history of weird Nintendo moments, this one stands out.

Tucked away deep within the Nintendo Switch operating system is the data for an NES original, Golf. It's playable by one or two players using Switch Joy-Cons and it even appears to support motion controls... or it would, if anyone knew how to unlock it.

For now, knowledge of Golf's existence on Switch comes entirely SwitchBrew.org, a wiki focused on hacking and analyzing the software powering Nintendo's latest console. It's not a piracy thing, however; "homebrew" programmers try to crack the code on gaming machines primarily to install software that wouldn't otherwise be supported. Read more...

Just to let you know, if you buy something featured here, Mashable might earn an affiliate commission.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: your mouth is not the place for your Nintendo Switch cards. There are better ways to carry them around.   

These handy albums store up to twelve Switch game cards in snug little compartments to ensure that they won’t tumble around when you’re on the go. The case snaps closed with a secure lock and is nice and compact for maximum portability.

There are plenty of different styles for Nintendo fans to choose from, too. If you’re a Mario groupie, you can grab the Mario hat case, a Question Block case, or even a POW Block case. If Zelda games are more your speed, you can get a case with a game logo on it or the Hylian Crest.     Read more...

There is a genius workaround to getting a Nintendo Switch before they sell out (again)

TwitterFacebook

Just to let you know, if you buy something featured here, Mashable might earn an affiliate commission.

Oh, Nintendo, why do you insist on under-producing all of your cool products? We wish we knew how to quit you.   

If you’re one of the many people who have yet to get their hands on a Switch (and are rightfully pissed about it), we may have found a workaround. If you buy it in a bundle with one of the new (or re-mastered) games coming out, you’ll be guaranteed a Switch when the next batch is released. There are actually some pretty cool bundles available and they’re all cheaper than finding a shady re-sale on eBay.     Read more...
