Random Time! - Pokemon's Lavender Town theme recreated in Fortnite

This isn't the first time we've shared Fortnite music creations, but it's definitely the most creepy video we've featured yet! No matter how many times I hear that song, it still makes me feel uneasy.

Random Time! - Excel ransomware uses Mario imagery

As most of you know, we unfortunately live in a world with something called 'ransomware.' For those who don't know, ransomware is a type of malicious software from cryptovirology that threatens to publish the victim's data or perpetually block access to it unless a ransom is paid. In a strange turn of events, one of the most recent ransomware attacks involves Mario. Reader Meza12 explains the situation.

An Excel file that comes as an attachment on a fake payment mail wants to run a macro to check if you’re Italian. If you are, it downloads a Super Mario image that, in turn,downloads the Gandcrab ransomware. This is one rare case of combining document macros, steganography, and ransomware deliverance.

As always, please be safe with your email. Never open attachments from anyone you don't know...even if Mario is involved.

Random Time! - Yes, you can play Smash Bros. Ultimate on a Sony Watchman

This is for jameslionbreath who asked how I made this crazy setup. So, here you go from r/supersmashbros

I can't tell you why people do what they do. I'm just happy that they do the things they do. Thanks to one of those people, we now know what Smash Bros. Ultimate would look like on a Sony Watchman. No person in their right mind would ever want to play Smash like this for an extended period of time, but now we know it's possible!

Random Time! - What do Smash Bros. Ultimate characters look like when inside Wario's mouth?

Smash Bros. Ultimate's free-roaming camera once again gives us insight into something we'd otherwise never see. I'm so glad it has, because this is pretty damn hilarious. Some of the characters look so damn funny like this!

Random Time! - Drawing Pokemon using mathematical formulas

I don't know why people do the weird things they do. I'm just happy they do them. Case in point, the Pikachu and Dedenne drawings you see above. These were both created using complex mathematical formulas. For example, here's what's needed to draw Pikachu.

I'm a horrible artist, so using the formula above might actually be a better way for me to get a decent-looking Pikachu!

Random Time! - This Bulbasaur fan is riding in style

There are plenty of ways to let people know you are a fan of Pokemon. Little things you can do throughout your day to share your love for pocket monsters. Then there's something a bit more grandiose, like this custom Bulbasaur paint job on a car. Now that's a way to turn some heads on the road!

Random Time! Hideki Kamiya Tweets out poll asking which of his characters fans would like in Smash Bros.

Hideki Kamiya has suddently created a Twitter poll asking which of his characters would be the most likely to appear in a Super Smash Bros. game. The current options are Dante (from Devil May Cry), Viewtiful Joe, Amaterasu (Okami), and Wonder Red (The Wonderful 101). 

It is unknown if this poll will have any sort of impact, as the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC fighters have allegedly already been chosen. With that said, it is still fun to see what a general audience may pick, and Kamiya is likely just trying to gauge fan interest. We will see if any of these characters make an appearance in Super Smash Bros. in the future!

Random Time! - Fisher Price toy hides a Konami Code secret


The Konami Code may not appear in Konami games too much in recent years, but it lives on in a number of ways. Other developers have adopted the code for their game, websites sneak in the code for Easter eggs, and now it seems someone at Fisher-Price is a fan of the code! Check out the clip above to see what the Konami Code does when entered into this toy.

Random Time! - Pizza place delivery offer includes one large pizza, two soft drinks, and a copy of Smash Bros. Ultimate for $100


I've seen some strange and interesting game deals in my day, but I don't know that I've ever seen one as unique as this. A pizza place in Canada is offering a special delivery deal that includes a large pizza, two soft drinks, and a copy of Smash Bros. Ultimate! This looks like a collab between a pizza joint and a game store, and it honestly seems like a pretty great deal! I wonder how many people are going to take them up on it.

Thanks to Dondom95 for the heads up!
