Hey so this is a pretty cool new tumblr. A friend of mine had brought it to my attention and I think the whole idea sounds fantastic!
Basically, a Nintendo character is highlighted for 2 weeks at a time and the objective is to send in fan art of that character during the time period. No contest or anything, just a gallery showcasing enthusiastic Nintendo fans.
It’s a simple premise but it sounds like a great way to get Nintendo-creative once in a while. That’s something I can always give the seal of approval for.
The current character is Paint Roller from the Kirby series which is an appropriate way to get a blog like that off to a rolling start. I was little late in posting this because the period to send in stuff ends on the 15th, so if you’re thinking of honoring Paint Roller you better start now!
I’ve always thought the plot for Donkey Kong Land was really creative
"Your game was only fun because it had lots of graphics"
"No way, I could be just as fun with less graphics"
"Ok well guess what I just called K. Rool, your bananas are gone again"
One of my favorite pieces of Nintendo history is the Gulf War Game Boy. It’s pretty well-known among Nintendo fans but hey! It might be news to you!
After a bombing during the Gulf War, the Game Boy’s owner found it almost completely charred and melted in the wreckage of the blast and sent it back to Nintendo. A Nintendo staff member decided to try to plug it in for the heck of it, and it powered on! Once the screen was replaced it worked like a charm.
The Gulf War Game Boy is a testament to the sturdy design and enduring nature of Nintendo’s handhelds, and it’s pretty amazing to see in action. It’s on display at the Nintendo World Store in NYC, where it spends its retirement playing an endless demo of the original Tetris, adored (but not played on) by all who visit the store. Good job lil buddy, you earned it
