Mario Gets Around – 4 Best Mario Spinoff Franchises [MUO Gaming]

Besides the platformers that Mario is known for, there are a ton of spinoffs that feature the famous plumber’s name and face attached to them. Almost all of the franchises with Mario’s name are of an incredibly high quality, so picking the best is no simple task. However, I have a great deal of experience playing all of them, so I am going to really think hard and choose the Mario spinoffs that are the top of the heap.

The 4 Most Important Websites For Classic Video Game Collectors [MUO Gaming]

Collecting video games is hard work. Sure, you can go on eBay and just buy up everything you want, but if you do, you will be paying full market value or more for every game and console you purchase. This is not the smartest way to collect, as you will be spending much more money than you need to. Instead, the best way to collect is to use your local resources such as pawn shops, flea markets, Craigslist, and if you’re really lucky, Freecycle.

Always Be Connected: What You Need to Get Internet Anywhere

We live in a world where we are accustomed to being connected at all times. It’s almost impossible to go out without wanting to have Internet. Between email, social networks, settling arguments, and chatting with friends, we all feel like the Internet is not optional at this point.

5 Awesome Games That Make PlayStation Plus Worth The Price [MUO Gaming]

I recently wrote an article about the biggest rip offs in the history of video games. In it, I was quick to point out that Microsoft charges $60 a year for a service that simply grants players the ability to play games online and a few other little perks. Sony, on the other hand, has an incredible service called PlayStation Plus that costs $50 a year, and gives users some cool extras, while playing games online remains free.

Memes are one of the most important things on the Internet. Sure, you can use the web to find important, potentially life saving information, but that is all overrated, as the meme is what truly makes the web go around. After all, looking at funny pictures is the reason the Internet was actually invented. Okay, so that’s all an exaggeration, but memes are definitely hilarious, and they are a big reason sites like Reddit and 9gag are so popular.

Video Games You Probably Didn’t Know Were Created By Shigeru Miyamoto

When most people think about video games, they think about Nintendo. When they think of Nintendo, they think of Shigeru Miyamoto is one of the first people we think of. He is the genius behind some of Nintendo’s most beloved characters like Mario, Zelda, Link, Donkey Kong, Yoshi, Fox, and the list simply goes on and on. While he might not be the godfather of video games in general, he is most certainly one of the most important figures.
