Yeah, I’m team Ps3, but for life I will always and forever be a fan of Super Mario. It’s just one of the most epic-awesomesauce games ever created! It may not be complex with a bunch of shooting, but it’s strategy will have you wanting to thrust the controller across the room. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve thrown my controller, then sulked across the room, picked it up, and spent another few hours in a haze of tedious concentration, infused with anger, followed by the joy of seeing the adorable toadstools.
Super Mario N64 is probably my favorite of all time, but I do love the classic Super Mario Bros. as well. It’s such an iconic character when it comes to gaming, so it’s nice that it will be a reference that will never get old. Man, I can’t even imagining having kids way down the line and trying to explain to them who Mario is. Wow, that’s going to be interesting! I’ll just have to immerse my kids in a gaming history lesson and explain to them that toadstools are the cutest characters ever incorporated in a video game. Or, maybe I’ll just sit down and show them a bunch of viral videos that show how epic Mario is.
If I had to choose a viral video that shows how awesomesauce Mario is, then I’d be a fool not to show Super Mario Beads 2. Have you guys seen it? It’s the latest viral sensation in the gaming/technology community right now. It’s basically a stop-motion video made by Marcus and Hannes Knutsson, and it thrusts Mario into the real world environment. It’s an exuberant video that includes the iconic Mario theme song, and it just inspires me to continue being creative. I love when people have abstract ideas and bring them to life. Watching this video inspires me to go pick up my camera and start actually filming my television show idea. I must create! Perhaps I will even dabble in some stop-motion, but I doubt it would ever be as epic as Super Mario Beads 2.
Check out pure awesomesauce below. Dude, you can’t ever go wrong with stop-motion and Mario. When it comes to creativity, anything Mario related doesn’t have to abide by the laws of nature. Imagination is totally free to run wild, especially if you throw in some adorable toadstools!

Man, remember when the Playstation Network went down in April/May 2011? I literally thought the world was going to come to an end. As a gamer, there is nothing I love more than being able to play online with my friends and other gamers across the world. I’m not going to lie and say that I’m not addicted to Call of Duty, well…because I sort of am. So when the network went down back in April, I had lost all respect for the PSN. I wasn’t able to play Call of Duty for a what felt like decades, but in actuality it was only a few weeks. But that outage had me wondering if the PSN would ever gain my respect, and make me a proud Ps3 owner again.
In order keep us consumers happy, Sony did give us some games back then since we survived that tragic ordeal. The free games they gave us were okay (Dead Nation was the only good one,) but I just felt like they really needed to give us something better. Since the outage, PSN has continued to add better full games for download and the Playstation Plus membership does seem to have it’s perks when it comes to game selections. I don’t have a Plus membership, but I still peruse the network in search of some cool free downloads. Beyond Good and Evil still isn’t free, but the full game is only $9.99 and I used to love playing it. I’ve got to admit the selection of games they offer for download is getting way better, but I think PSN has finally made us PS3 owners very proud. DC Universe Online is officially free for us beloved PS3 owners.
In October Sony and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced that DC Universe Online was going to finally be free to play on PC and PS3. Dude, how effin’ spectacular is that?! I mean you actually get to download the game for free, and then basically become the hero or villain you always dreamed of being. I’m sold. I actually finally got around to downloading it a few days ago, which for some reason took like 8 hours! But it’s a 16gb file, so it’s a massive download. Yet, in the end it’s so worth it! If you happen to be one of those PS3 haters and a glorified Xbox 360 junkie, then you’re missing out! I know PSN may not be impressive to some, but it has finally truly made me proud to be a Ps3 owner.
I own all three major systems, but I’ve always been Team Ps3. I just love not having to pay for online fees and being able to have access to some pretty cool PS3 only games such as Little Big Planet, Uncharted, and DCUO (DC Universe Online.) I’m so glad that the game is finally free and I actually find myself getting caught up for hours flying around and leveling up to enhance my character’s powers. I never been big on MMORPG’s, but DCUO sure does have a spot in my heart. It’s such a mind blowing game, and if you don’t have it, then go download it from PSN! Oh and to all my fellow PS3 owners out there, be sure to add me on PSN @ Funk25
I’m off to go play DCUO online and fly around for hours, so I now declare this post complete! LOL….I’m telling you, the PSN has finally made me uber proud to be on team Ps3. Ah, it’s so amazing!
