    24 years ago was a dark time for video game movies… That was when ‘Super Mario Brothers’ movie first hit theaters. The movie starring Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo as Mario and Luigi is universally panned, and has squashed any idea of a movie from Nintendo… until now.

    The Wall Street Journal reporting that Nintendo is in talks with Illumination Entertainment, the makers of sing, and all movies with the Minions in it.

    Reports say that series creator Shigeru Miyamoto would be a producer. And that Nintendo would like to do more than just license something.

    Forbes releasing it’s ’30 under 30′ list. A list of 600 young adults in 20 fields who are highly influential. The gaming category has a wide array of game related influencers, including 28-year-old Mark Fishbach….
