Hey there. As a kid (or maybe even now), did you ever take a Flintstone vitamin, play with Barbie or Hot Wheels, play with He-Man or She-Ra (or watch the TV show), or spent hours on a Sega Genesis?

Are You Ready to Get Inked? Splatoon Out Today for the Wii U

The Nintendo World Championships are Back

Hey there.  The Nintendo World Championships are back!  After a 25 year hiatus, Nintendo will bring back the official Nintendo competition to crown the ultimate Nintendo champion!!!  If you were a kid in the 90's, you may remember hearing about the Nintendo World Championship.  Actually, you probably remember seeing the movie, The Wizard (starring Ben Savage... you know... the kid from The Wonder Years).  The movie is essentially about a gaming competition that this kid just has to compete in.  Coincidentally enough, Nintendo games and products are scattered throughout the movie.  The Nintendo World Championships are loosely based on the gaming competition in the movie.  But come to think of it... I think Nintendo was ahead of it's time.  We didn't have live streaming back in the 90s.  The event wasn't televised, at least not that I know of.  And if you wanted to see who won... good luck.  lol  But today... we have gaming competitions on practically every inch of the internet.  Super Smash Bros. competitions are HUGE so you can imagine how well received an official Nintendo World Championship Competition will be!!!

Nintendo Teams Up with Universal Studios

Universal Studios and Nintendo
Hey there.  Now this is interesting...  It was announced today that Nintendo has entered into a partnership with Universal Studios to allow Nintendo characters and Nintendo themed attractions at Universal Studios Theme Parks.  How cool is that?!  Universal Studios is known for having movie themed attractions so I'm curious to see how they'll incorporate Nintendo games.  Will be have a Super Mario Bros. obstacle course?  A Metroid themed roller coaster?  How about a shoot the target type game featuring Link or Zelda and a bow an arrow (lasers or light based attraction, of course.)?  I think the potential is there to have all kinds of fun at Universal Studios now that Nintendo is on board.  But... considering that Universal Studios is, in fact, a movie studio... is a Nintendo movie in the works?  Maybe a reboot of the Super Mario Bros. movie?  It's possible.  We'll just just have to wait and see!

Giving Thanks for the Year that was 2014

Hey there.  Can you believe that 2014 is nearly over?  Tomorrow is New Year's Eve.  2014 will soon be a memory and new experiences will be made in 2015.  2014 has been an eventful one, both personally and professionally.  Personally, new city, new home, new environment...  Professionally, new schedule, new contacts, new opportunities.  Personal items affect business items.  Moving into a new home really set me back a bit blog wise.  I'm sure you noticed that my posts have not been as routine as they used to be.  But those months spent settling into a new home is now over and a schedule has been set in place to assure posts are done on a more consistent manner.  But I digress...  This post is about giving thanks.  Thanks to those that have made 2014 a successful one for this website.  Also, I want to give a little insight on what is to come in 2015.  So let's get right to it.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker for the Wii U

Hey there.  You know, Toad has always been one of my favorite characters from the Mushroom Kingdom.  Whenever he's available as a playable character, more often than not, I choose him to be my guy.  So when Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker was announced for the Wii U, I was pretty glad that my man Toad was getting his own game and adventure!

Ganondorf Confirmed as a Playable Character in Hyrule Warriors

Ganondorf in Hyrule Warriors
Hey there.  Hyrule Warriors is really bringing on the hype!  Our first real glimpse at a Zelda game for the Wii U has many fans excited, and for good reason too.  Even though the game is a spin off of The Legend of Zelda series, it's enough to quench our thirst while we wait for an actual adventure starring Link on the Wii U.  Nintendo has been feeding us screenshots and video of many of the announced playable characters of Hyrule Warriors, but none has grabbed my attention as Ganondorf has.  Just look at this beast!
