This Super Mario 64 hack gives Mario a dizzying first-person perspective

  This Super Mario 64 hack gives Mario a dizzying first-person perspective Nintendo ROM hacker Kaze Emanuar has used a conceptually simple tweak to give Super Mario 64 a completely different feel. First Person Mario 64 is exactly what it sounds like: your camera follows Mario’s head movement as closely as possible, turning the game into a dizzying first-person adventure.In the clip above, Emanuar runs through a few of the ways the game plays differently. Rolls and jumps become “terrifying” with your vision limited to a first-person perspective, and level geometry disappears at close range, so sometimes it looks like you’re running on thin air.

A series of scandals have led many to call for YouTube to vet its videos. Now, following the uproar over Logan Paul's Aokigahara forest video, YouTube may begin vetting the videos posted by its most popular channels , according to Bloomberg.

YouTube will now review its most popular channels for offensive content after cutting ties with controversial vlogger Logan Paul. 1. YouTube is removing content featuring minors that may be endangering the child, even if that is not what the person who made the video intended.

Last spring, companies like AT&T and Verizon pulled ads because they were found to be appearing alongside extremist videos. And it was hit with another round of ad-pulling later in the year when reports surfaced that a portion of the site's children's content turned out to be not so kid-friendly. Now, following the uproar over Logan Paul's Aokigahara forest video, YouTube may begin vetting the videos posted by its most popular channels, according to Bloomberg.

Paul's channel was one of YouTube's Google Preferred accounts -- a group of top-tier, highly viewed channels that Google sells ad space on at a higher rate. YouTube pulled Paul's Preferred status yesterday as part of its response to his video, but for content creators that still have that status, those Preferred accounts will now reportedly be vetted in order to make sure their content is appropriate for the brands buying ad space on the videos.

The report claims that YouTube is looking to review its popular channels for potentially offensive content . This is said to involve the use of both human moderators as well as the use of AI to help search and flag videos that might be deemed inappropriate.

According to Bloomberg's source, Google will use both human moderators and AI to spot videos that may not be appropriate for ads. In a statement to Bloomberg, a Google spokesperson said, "We built Google Preferred to help our customers easily reach YouTube's most passionate audiences and we've seen strong traction in the last year with a record number of brands. As we said recently, we are discussing and seeking feedback from our brand partners on ways to offer them even more assurances for what they buy in the Upfronts."

It appears Mike Munchak will not be the next head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, as the Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line coach turned down a second interview for the job, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter. Munchak, who appeared to be a front-runner for the Cardinals job, was previously the head coach of the Tennessee Titans from 2011-13 before being fired after posting a 22-26 record in that span.With Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley's contract having expired, Munchak could be in line for that position should the club decide to go in a different direction.
