Many women secretly dream of their hubby-to-be proposing on a secluded island as the sun goes down. But gaming buff Brain Klima went a step further and popped the question with a little help from Mario and Luigi.

not as impressive as the story floating around the interwebs yesterday about the guy who hacked bewjeweled to say will you marry me with a doamond ring animation that triggered when his now fiancee got to a certain score.
