Mario Kart: The Movie – Trailer Looks Amazing!

A bunch of serious Mario Kart fans have decided to produce a movie, and so far the trailer looks awesome! It’s got everything – drugs, bastard children, homicide. Plus, the acting and voiceovers seem pretty decent and it looks like this might actually have some serious potential. Perhaps costumes/etc might need a little work, but overall it’s looking really good.

You’re not going to want to miss it. Check out the trailer below:

I don’t know about you, but I’m itching to see more. Hopefully new developments come out soon!

If Everything Was Made By Microsoft

Microsoft Wedding Album

Apparently recently had a contest to see who could make the best photo of how things would look if Microsoft had in fact taken over the world (like it appeared they might back in the 90s). In fact, I can remember reading a newspaper article about a kitchen controlled entirely by Microsoft-driven computers. For example, the refrigerator had a built-in computer terminal with a touch screen for accessing recipe databases and even maintaining inventory of its contents.

Fortunately, given their last several product releases, it doesn’t appear that there’s any chance of Microsoft taking over much of anything…which makes ridiculing them all the more funny!

Remember way back when there was a “Funny Errors and Glitches” section on The “C” Branch, or even the old CDeMar22? Well, I came across some archives the other day and decided that would be a great idea to bring back and turn into a new site.

Head on over to to check out our totally awesome, all-new Errors and Glitches website.

And don’t forget to submit your funniest error screens!
