Old School Runescape went ahead and commemorated one of, if not the most fateful day in Runescape history yesterday. It was the Falador Massacre, and in case you didn't know, here's how it went down:

Player Cursed You maxed out his Construction skill, invited a few dozen friends into his house, things got a little bit rowdy as they will when the band gets together, a sparring combat ring was assembled in the house, which flagged players for PvP. But here's where it gets interesting...

When Cursed You kicked people out of his house, they remained flagged for PvP, and a horde of revellers marauded through Falador, laying bloody waste to everyone in their path. 

The tortured cries of 'bank your items!' echo into eternity...

So, in honor of that fateful day the Old School Runescape team set up a tournament in World 666 that made Falador a battleground once more.

Appropriate, don't care, or distasteful? Have at it:

Nintendo celebrated the 30th birthday of Super Mario Bros. with the release of this excellent little video documenting the creation of that iconic game.

Shigeru Miyamoto explains his inspiration and process for how the lasting gem came into being.

Technically, Sept. 13 was the 30th anniversary, but who knows when that is relative to today, what with modern time zones and all. So, Google got into the spirit today with a nifty little Easter egg.

If you type "Super Mario Bros." into search, a question box will appear in the results and you can go ahead and collect all the coins you want.



Unfortunately, you do not receive an extra life if you click it 100 times.

Happy belated b-day Super Mario Bros. Thanks for introducing me to a life long habit of reality avoidance.

That's actually half a decade. Just try to say that out loud. Sounds ominous, right? That's as much as 60 months. Or 261 weeks. Or 1827 days. Or 43 848 hours. Or 2 630 880 minutes. Or 157 852 800 seconds. And that is just ridiculous.

James Maguire says:

Ever since Spider-Man first appeared in Amazing Fantasy #15 50 years ago, he has become one of (if not the most) recognized and popular comic book heroes ever. I wanted to do something to commemorate the event and to show how much this comic book character has had an impact on my life. Each Spider-Man was created in Illustrator using hand-drawn shapes (no Live Trace). I spent 7 months on this project, and I'm so happy that I could get it done for the first day of August. Other resolutions will be uploaded to the URL in this post at a later time.
