The Man Behind Mario (Video)

So I was playing Mario Run on my phone the other day and I began to wonder who played the voice of Mario. I figured it was common knowledge for me it isn’t. Voice actors come and go over the years and I wouldn’t have been surprised to find out that the voice of Mario in the games had changed through the course of his life. However, that is not the case. In fact one man has voiced Mario for the last 26 years and the best part is that he loves voicing the video game plumber and he loves playing the games.

Mario Kart + Star Wars = Star Kart (Video)

Have you ever wondered what could make Mario Kart even better? Some of the funnest times I’ve ever had playing video games was with the many versions of Mario Kart of course. I’ve had countless hours of fun with my friends racing each other and shooting green and red shells at them. I can’t really think of how this game could be any more fun, that is until I saw this video. Adding Star Wars to the mix makes pretty much every thing better and Mario Kart is no exception.

They say that every dog has his day and thanks to James Farr now even the lowly Koopa Troopas can have their day too. In an awesome throwback video to the amazingly entertaining video games of the late 80s and early 90s the Koopa Troopas form a Kick Ass ninja fighting team. Even the music from the original NES Ninja Turtle video game makes an awesome appearance and really helps set that nostalgic mood.
