Link, Isabelle, and more coming to Mario Kart 8 ⊟

What. Not sure if this reveal was accidental, but Nintendo UK’s official site posted listings for two upcoming downloadable content packs for Mario Kart 8.

The Zelda pack, coming this November, includes:

  • 3 Characters: Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link
  • 4 Vehicles (is that a Blue Falcon from F-Zero?)
  • 8 Courses (including an F-Zero stage!)

The Animal Crossing pack isn’t due until May 2015:

  • 3 Characters: Villager, Isabelle, Dry Bowser
  • 4 Vehicles
  • 8 Courses (an Animal Crossing stage, yay!)

Each pack is priced at £7.00 or the UK, or around $11.60. The listings note, “As a bonus for purchasing both packs - as a bundle or separately - you can get eight different-coloured Yoshis and eight different-coloured Shy Guys that can be used right away.”

Let’s Make Fun Of: Anthropologie Furniture

lizgalvao:

I love to hate Anthropologie furniture. In particular, the way they stage it for their website. There’s this gross fantasy they’ve created of an art student who can afford to spend thousands of dollars on a paint-splattered flea market find. It’s like all their customers are aspiring to be Charlotte in Tiny Furniture (a loft-dwelling trust fund dilettante).

They’ve gone off the deep end with the juxtaposition. You know those fashion editorials every fall where models lasagned in Prada swing around street signs in Red Hook? It’s like that, but on acid. The settings are more deteriorated and the designs are more design-y. It’s like shopping from deep within Fuck Your Noguchi Coffee Table.

If you choose to purchase a piece of Anthropologie furniture, it will only really look right in one of three settings:

1. An alternative gallery space six weeks from opening

2. An urban cabin with faulty electrical wiring

3. A crumbling Southern plantation (soon to be deemed “the new loft” by the NYTimes)


Let’s take a stroll through the Anthropologie furniture section together. What’s for sale today?

“In addition to being one of the most notorious scenes in the Star Trek franchise’s history, the campout in The Final Frontier—which ends with Kirk, Spock, and McCoy attempting to sing “Row Row Row Your Boat”—inspired one of the damnedest pieces of cross-promotion. Right before Kirk and company start to sing, bombed on bourbon-beans, Spock pulls out a futuristic device to dispense what he calls “marsh melons,” to be roasted over the fire, just as he’s seen in his computer records about camping. When Star Trek V came out, Kraft offered a plastic replica of Spock’s dispenser, for any Trekkie who mailed in a proof-of-purchase from a bag of Jet-Puffed marshmallows.”

This month’s Adventures In Licensing looks at one of the most dubious pieces of movie cross-promotion—the Star Trek V: The Final Frontier Kraft Marshmallow Dispenser—and asks, “why?” [Read more…]
