It seems like PlayStation 2 and GameCube aren’t getting the sort of respect nowadays that Super NES and Genesis received back when PS2 and GameCube were current systems.
The last Swapnote I sent was congratulating two people on my 3DS friends list for becoming engaged on stage at the Pokemon XY launch in NYC.
Swapnote is probably going to be like the Hindenburg of meaningful online interaction for Nintendo.
Pokemon I <3 Gothic - Ghost Party Illustration!
"Look Cuebone! Ghost Pokemon! Maybe we’ll find your mom in here!" Said Pikachu.
It’s finally over. G4 is dead.
More than a decade ago, G4 briefly provided a glimpse of what it would be like if video games and the culture and community surrounding them could support an entire full schedule TV station.
However, it was allowed to, or even encouraged to, rapidly decay into an absolute train wreck of a television network that became a joke amongst many gamers, and it destroyed another great channel, Tech TV, in the process of doing so.
What was supposed to do for video games what MTV did for music and pop culture in the 80’s and 90’s spend most of its existence as a hollow Spike TV wannabe with a technology slant generally informed by the least flattering aspects of the gaming/technology subculture that leaned heavily towards “dudebro”.
Unlike the early 2000’s however, being represented by a television station is nowhere near as important a mark of distinction for the gaming industry in the age of web based mass media and user generated content.
I miss what G4 very briefly was and very briefly represented to those passionate about video games, but what it spent most of its life as was in my opinion an absolute embarrassment, and I’m glad it’s over.
Though I have to admit, I very nearly shed a tear as I snapped this photo of my TV screen.
Nintendo of America is making a motherfucking COPYRIGHT CLAIM on a video I TOOK ON THE STREETS OF TIME SQUARE, IN PUBLIC.
I could understand if this was a clam on a video I took on their property, in their own Nintendo World store, but no, this is something that was LITERALLY ON THE STREETS, IN PUBLIC.
THERE ISN’T EVEN ANY NINTENDO GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE IN THE VIDEO!
I pay 40 dollars for a train ticket to New York and stand in line in the cold to pay 40 dollars for a Mario game, decide to take some footage of the launch event they held IN PUBLIC, ON THE STREETS, and Nintendo’s big idea to thank me is to make a copyright claim on my video TWO YEARS LATER.
Way to thank me for Operation Bluewave guys.
Way to thank me for sleeping overnight in my car to attend E3 2006 at Nintendo World guys.
Way to thank me for buying every Nintendo system since the mid 90’s except for Wii U within four months of launch.
Way to thank me for freezing my ass off in Union Square for the consciously over priced Nintendo 3DS at launch and sticking by it for the first year when half the gaming world had already written it off as the next Virtual Boy.
Way to thank me for taking a 40 dollar hour long train ride into NYC to camp out for the launch of Wii U just to show support for Nintendo when I KNEW that I couldn’t even afford a Wii U and still don’t have one today.
So Digiorno’s gimmick has always been that their frozen pizzas are as good as, if not better than, commercial delivery pizza.
I never found this to be the case, but I’d very occasionally pick one up as a cheaper alternative to calling Dominos when I wanted pizza with a DVD or something on a Friday or Saturday night and for frozen pizza I generally find Digiorno’s to be better than most frozen pizzas.
Well, there’s this new style of frozen pizza Digiorno has called “Pizzeria Style” or something to that effect, it stands out because they totally changed the box design for it.
All I know is, it tastes tremendously better than the regular version of their brand and for the first time I can honestly say it very, very closely rivals (though IMO doesn’t match) the taste of the pizzas I once in a blue moon have money to order from Dominos.
So if you’re gonna watch DVDs or play video games or whatever and feel like trying a cheaper, but IMO still very competitively good tasting pizza than a commercial delivery pizza, Digiorno’s Pizzeria Style might be worth a shot.
Of course, if you want legitimate pizza you’ll still have to call up a hole in the wall pizza parlor. IMO commercial delivery pizza and frozen pizza is just lovely, luxurious, junk food for video game/dvd nights, not legitimate pizza.
Mario, you’re being a dick. :<
(it would be hilarious if the Koopa starts crying if you throw the shell off a cliff or break it though)
In response to this specific set of screenshots, I’ve still seen people bitching that this is “just a sidescroller” and that “this isn’t a REAL 3D Mario game”.
I pledge allegiance to #TeamFroakie, the natural choice for extinguishing Team Flare in the upcoming @Pokemon games.
People are still calling this “a glorified 3DS port” and “an NSMB game with fake 3D added in” and are bitching for their “real 3D Mario”.
Gamers are honestly so full of shit it’s incredible.
Pokémon Origins English trailer is finally around.
Looks like its going to be four episodes. I was pretty thrilled over the prospect of just one episode.
Also, why is there a statue of the Ultimate Chimera from MOTHER 3 behind Red and Charmander?
I just realized that this game came out in 1998, 7 years after the launch of Super NES, and two years after the launch of N64, which is mind blowing to me to think this game came out the same year as Yoshi’s Story and Ocarina of Time.
In 1998, Super NES seemed like ancient history to me and everyone I knew.
Grand Theft Auto V just came out for Xbox 360, which is currently EIGHT YEARS OLD and still a “current gen” system.
Xbox 360 is now OLDER than Super NES was in 1998, when N64 was nearly halfway through its lifespan.
