The Nintendo Switch hasn't had the easiest of launches. While people seem pretty into the system itself, Nintendo has been plagued with dead pixels, controller issues, saving problems, and very few launch titles. Still, the Nintendo 64 lauched with Super Mario 64 and Pilot Wings 64 and people were still pretty psyched sabout it. 

Remember?

But still, you've got to give it up to Nintendo, apparently, they built a pretty sturdy system. I mean, check out this video of someone blasting the Switch with a waterjet at 60,000 PSI. Despite the fact that they cut through the glass and some sort of liquid starts pouring out of the screen, the machine contnues to play Zelda. It's really impressive and cool. 

In today's installment of "What the Hell Is Wrong With People and Why Are They Doing That," people are so excited for the Nintendo Switch that, for some reason, they're tasting the cartridges. 

This all started when video game reviewer Jeff Gerstmann threw one of the cartridges back to see what it tasted like and, poof, a meme is born.

Now, according to Mic, the cartridges intentionally taste bad, as a Nintendo rep points out. The video game-company says, "To avoid the possibility of accidental ingestion, keep the game card away from young children. A bittering agent (Denatonium Benzoate) has also been applied to the game card. This bittering agent is non-toxic."

Well, now other people are trying it out. I hope everyone's happy with themselves.

Nintendo ever protective of its business, successfully pulled off a banana peel assault mission on a Japanese business that was trying to scrape together some extra yen by simulating the iconic Mario Kart, in real life. If there's one thing the go kart business MariCar likely learned, it's that you don't go to battle with the damn titan of brands.

Mario's good at a lot of things: Running, jumping, getting big, turning into a fire dude, being a doctor, plumbing, painting, and driving a go kart. 

One thing he's not particularly good at is being a real-live human being. 

YouTuber CrowbCat made a few modifications to the trailer for Super Mario Odyssey, the game that sticks Mario in a realistic urban setting, which only highlights how weird looking Mario really is. He did them one better, stucking a 6-foot tall Mario inside Grand Theft Auto, so you can see how gross it is for Mario to go to the strip club. Weird.

The idea of Mario, not only disrespecting Peach this way, but also engaging in any type of sexual situation makes me sick to my stomach. But aside from that, you can see Mario drive and explode in a helicopter, fall off a building, and meet a hail of gunfire at the hands of the Liberty City Police.
