Super Mario Crossover

And another Flash-Game that atrracted my attention. In „Super Mario Crossover“ you can play the orginal Super Mario Bros. Levels with lots of classic NES characters such as Link from Zelda, Samus Aran from Metroid, Simon from Castlevania and Megaman from… Pokémon… erm… Megaman. The game is around for a longer time but you know, for me it takes some time to like things enough to post‘em on this blog.

Happy Earth Day: Where’s the Hidden Triforce?!

Can you see it?? I can‘t but I haven‘t looked carefully yet. What’s Earth Day for at all??

Earth Day is a day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment. It was founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in held on April 22, 1970. Earth Day is celebrated in spring in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. Many communities celebrate Earth Week, an entire week of activities focused on environmental issues. The first Earth Week originated in Philadelphia in 1970 (starting April 16 and culminating on Earth Day, April 22.) Earth Day Network, a group that wishes to become the coordinator of Earth Day globally, asserts that Earth Day is now observed on April 22 on virtually every country on Earth. World Environment Day, celebrated on June 5 in a different nation every year, is the principal United Nations environmental observance.

Ah, OK. Good to know.

PS: Gaylord… lolz…

(Not so) Awesome Videogames

It is a little tooo cool and colorful. And the theme music sucks.

Pokémon Black & White

OK, we knew that there would come a new Pokémon generation. This time the colors are Black & White. OK for that. I wanna know how many new Pokémon are in this game??? I guess there will be more than 600 Pokémon in the end.

You can find more information and even some exclusive pics at First Game Screenshots of ‘Pokemon Black’ and ‘Pokemon White’ in ‘CoroCoro’

Oh man, luckily I get off the Poké-Train after LeafGreen!!!

Everybody Pokemon

I‘m currently researching for an article about Pokemon for Lotek64. Guess what came back to my mind when I saw the extras on the second movie’s DVD:

Where is Waldo?

I really hate this search pictures. But this rocks. Thispicture hides 56 different videogame titles. Some of them are easy to guess, some of them are not. Without any help I guessed 34, with the solution I found all. Everything is part of a weird project that sort of belongs to Tron. I don‘t know…

The game rocks, that is the most important thing!!

Nintendo 3DS announced

[image source: Zelda Informer]

Oh, man this is so lame. But it is typical for Nintendo. Just think back to the age of the Gameboy. There were sooooo many handheld consoles that were much better than the old grey brick but Nintendo pwned them all. Just because of the right games: Tetris in the beginning, then Mario and Pokémon in the end. It is the same with the DS. Dr. Kawashima rocks balls, Layton also does. So even if Sony and Apple have consoles with much better specs, Nintendo stills pwnes them. Well, let’s see if Nintendo can reach the power of the PSP or the iPhone and iPod touch with the 3DS…

But maybe it’s only „for whom it may concern“…

PS: maybe the 3DS will look a little bit like the Nintendo BS: FAKERONI

The Darkness That Zelda Deserves

This article deals with the way stories are told in the Zelda universe. We always have the hero, the villain and of course the hero wins at the end. But what if we had to decide who we should save first: Princess Zelda or the world?

This article brings one good thought: What if we had to lose in the end of the game? This would bring up the possibility for a direct sequel and a clearer timeline. But: Would it work??? I don‘t think so. First of all we love the Zelda series for the way each game is presented. Each game uses another gameplay element. For example the time jumps in Ocarina of Time, the two worlds in A Link to the Past and the wolf-form in Twilight Princess. A direct sequel would mean, we would lose this way. A direct sequel that also continues the story of the previous game can‘t bring a new gameplay element.

I just had to think of the Prince of Persia franchise. In one trilogy of the games you are able to manipulate time by using the Sand of Time. These games belong together. In the latest game of the series there was no Sand anymore because they started a new story line with new gameplay elements. This game even is a good example for hours and hours of playing, and in the end your love is laying there sleeping. To be continued in the next games… the missing episode only was released via DLC on PS3 and XBOX360 for about 10 €. PC gamers didn‘t even get the chance to play this small episode. OK, Zelda is Nintendo exclusive and Miyamoto doesn‘t believe in online distribution.

Back to Zelda: We are used to see a cheering crowd in the end of the Zelda-games. Of course it would motivate us to buy the next game if we still had a mission to accomplish. But just IMAGINE (it will never happen) the game sucks. Nobody would buy the sequel.

Two great articles about Zelda

Recently two really impressive articles around the Zelda universe have been released. The first cares about the names and meanings of enemies inhabiting the kingdom of Hyrule. It puts up some really nice ideas and facts. And let’s be honest: How often do we get actual facts when we talk about the Zelda univers?!

The second one is more theorethical again. It is about „Link’s Awakening“ and how a dreamworld can be the place for a Zelda game.

I think these two articles show that many people still care about the „Legend of Zelda“ even if most of the games are older than some of their players. I just wanna remind you to the boy from Spy Kids that thought it would know well about timeline theories. In case you don‘t remember, here’s the link again: IDIOTERONI. As a Zelda fan you have to watch it. Even I with my low knowledge about Zelda timelines and everything around, know that he is talking shit. But I think that he had one good point. I can‘t remember which. Maybe it was when he switched off the camera… I don‘t know.

Flash Game – Monkey Kong

OMG, I‘m addicted. Addicted to a little simple Flash Game called „Monkey Kong“. The gameplay has nothing to do with Donkey Kong. You are a small ape that has to collect bananas. That’s all. No hazards, no enemies, just bananas, jumping and you. This game is FUN!!!
