Is Conan’s Tonight Show backdrop a shout out to Mario?

If you’re a fan of late night television, and well-versed in classic video games, you may have noticed something interesting about Conan O’Brien’s new Tonight Show backdrop.

At first glance, the screen just seem like shades of blue and odd random shapes. A bit art nouveau. But a few eagle-eyed nerds (and I mean that with respect) realized that it is a darn close match to Super Mario Brothers.

LOL. If this wasn’t an intentional shout-out, then the game was surely the inspiration for the set designer. Maybe Conan has a covert deal with Nintendo to subliminally coax his viewers into buying a Wii 😉

Mass Effect 2 Gameplay

More News from the Mass Effect 2 camp. There is a video of game play out on the innerweb’s. One thing that stands out is the, literal standing and fireing that is still present in the game. We don’t know what “mode” it’s on, this is probably easy to be honest. And that is present in most shooter games on the Easy mode. The part where the player shoots off the Mech’s leg and it keeps coming for Shepard is AWESOME. It appears the menu’s are the same so we can probably expect more of the same but a polished style and gameplay for Mass Effect 2 ala Halo 2. Enough of the chit-chat. Here’s the video of the Mass effect 2 gameplay!
