Three things on the indie game front, then stuff:

Super Mario Bros. Crossover, built from scratch by a dude who taught himself programing so he could make this game is exactly the kind of game you make when you want to make a game so bad you teach yourself programing to do so. The vision here was very clear. Also, beating Super Mario Bros as Samus is hella fun. And Link is shockingly good in X-4 levels. Plus, it's just fun to run through a level of flying fish, gunning everything down Contra-style.

Hero Core also released this week, by the creator of Iij. If the Atari had never ceased production, this is the game that would have resulted. Also if it had babies with Metroid.

And short, minimalist platformer Love has a demo for the new version, which will hopefully drop soon. And a level creator!

John Seavey's brilliant take on the biography of Steve Rogers is something I would read. Something I would super-read.

A timeline of Facebook descent into evil. Not that I'll stop using it just yet.

The desert does crazy things to a man's mind (yoink).
