Offworld put me onto this Youtube playlist full of glitched-up Super Mario Bros. videos. Some are the standard, boring ROM hacks that you see all over the place. But the others, they're actually pretty rad. They appear to have been created by someone who is pumping an emulator full of nefarious Game Genie codes, and the results are awesome... if you like the way broken old technology looks and sounds.

Ryan and I spent a significant chunk of time staring at circuit bent instruments on eBay earlier this week, and this sort of falls in the same vein of saying "HEY LOOK, WE BROKE THIS THING IN A WAY THAT YOU MIGHT FIND COOL IF YOU'RE MESSED UP IN THE HEAD."

So... I find these to be pretty cool. Here's my favorite, and while we're at it, here's a video of a circuit bent Speak and Spell to go with it.

  


AAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!

#4 Posted by piecat (403 posts) -

It took like 10 minutes to load the videos for some reason, but besides that, this is awesome in a crazy way.

#7 Posted by MattBodega (2276 posts) -

#8 Posted by ArbitraryWater (12727 posts) -

That video was crazy, but I couldn't watch the last hack because it hurt my eyes.

#9 Posted by ComradeCrash (583 posts) -

Cool video!  I think that happened to my Super Mario Bros. 3 once long, long ago...bring back memories...

Oh lord. If that Circuit Bender has a woman in his life, she tied up and gagged in his dungeon with the rest of wacky electronic abortions.

I think I need to take a couple of advil and go lie down now.

#12 Posted by natetodamax (19421 posts) -

I got a headache after the first 30 seconds.

Two things: I love the remixes that the glichted music creates, and I think someone should make an actual Super Mario Bros 3 mod that includes the brick-kicking suit as a power-up.

Edit: how is being able to play the VS, Mario Bros original battle mode a glitch?

What the crap?

Awesome video.

#21 Posted by Hughes (423 posts) -

Haha i was watching some corruption videos just like last week or so. They're pretty funny

#22 Posted by zityz (2366 posts) -

After watching half of it, I came to the assessment of WHAT THE FUCKS THE POINT?!?!
It's just a pile full of dumb, it hurts your eyes and its a real waste of a good NES smb3.

The other video, I'm sure that's how he gets all the ladies. "Up now is DJ SPEAK'N'SPELL y'alls"

That was... odd.  But interesting.

You normally can't in one-player mode, and I think they were trying to illustrate that no one could control Luigi, thus making the mode worthless.  Also, they were stuck in the far-off corner of the map screen, unable to access any "real" levels.

The music in corruption 5 is.... intriguing.

#25 Posted by TomServo (243 posts) -

It's sounds like he's torturing poor speak and spell!!!!

#28 Posted by Bigbombomb (698 posts) -

The mario video is just plain weird, but the speak and spell is pretty interesting.

#30 Posted by DondonIcon (112 posts) -

Play both videos together.
ITS MAD!!!

#31 Posted by John1912 (2114 posts) -

Im not sure why I should care about either of these.  The mario game just looks broken, and the speak and spell hurts my ears.

Hahaha, after spending much of this evening listening to Boards of Canada, this is right up my alley, thank you Jeff.

@zityz

the last half was the better half.
the music in #s 4 & 5 was cool.

Hey Jeff, where's the damn Nintendo standard " ! WARNING - Seizures" alert at the head of this post?
#38 Edited by FlipperDesert (2136 posts) -

Corruption type 1-3: Haha what the hell is this?

Corruption type 4: This music *owns*.

Corruption type 5: *vomit*

This video was pretty bad for my head.

Everything after 2 just blows my mind

#41 Posted by ahoodedfigure (4553 posts) -

One of the first things I did with my games, even as a kid, was to see how I could screw them up.  Used to trick out the reset button on my old 2600 so things would mess up, used to skip around the walls in Combat.  Was fun :)

#42 Posted by MrKlorox (11142 posts) -

Watching both of those in a row gave me a massive headache. ugh.

#43 Posted by Duckbutter (387 posts) -

is it safe to say this Jeff guy needs a life yet? but know this: you can make some super dope beats with those glitched out Mario musics. i'm gonna have to yoink some of this off of YouTube and add some booms and ticks if you know what i'm sayin.
