Pretty neat isometric 3D redesign of Link and the original The Legend of Zelda by French artist Sir Carma. It looks similar to 3D Dot Game Heroes, but that’s absolutely not a bad thing.
Anyone can toss a TV and some speakers together and call it a home theater. But like many who’ve gone before him, Imgur user tylerfulltilt went above and beyond the call of duty with a custom setup that pays homage to the original 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System.
The very first stage of the original NES Castlevania, the spooky Ghost House from Super Mario World, our first battle with Bowser in Super Mario Bros. Scenes we probably all remember and encountered one way or another, from the NES days, that Mark Green resurrected with brilliant dioramas.
Even though the NES Turtles game had its issues (something something underwater level), we didn’t really care as kids. And playing it on a Turtles-themed NES, similar to this custom one by Zoki64, would have been an awesome feeling.
I’ll make a deal with you, Nintendo: I will promise to buy any console that you release, if you will promise to release a new Punch-Out!! game on it.
Let’s take a look at video games’ favorite scene from the Star Wars series: the battle of Hoth. Developers have been trying for over 30 years to get it right.
The setting and the story of the third Evil Dead movie would have been perfect for a Metroidvania game. Something similar to the first Castlevania. We never had one, so CineFix imagined how it’d look.
I invite you to feast your eyes on an expert playthrough of the original Super Mario Bros. Somehow, a speedrunner known as Darbian manages to blaze through the old-school classic in whopping 4:57.627.
On October 18, 1985 Nintendo of America took a huge gamble, releasing a console into a North American market that seemed to have washed its hands of video games completely. Thirty years later those hands are filthier than ever.
Video game history could’ve gone a totally different way if Nintendo’s corporate headquarters were somewhere else. “If Nintendo wasn’t located in Kyoto, I wouldn’t have been there,” the man who lead the design of the Nintendo Entertainment System said last night. Good thing Masayuki Uemura’s parents never relocated to…
Welcome again to the 1980s, an era of great political and cultural change and importantly for us, changes in the entertainment we played and watched. But does any of this media that people have great nostalgia for hold up to someone who wasn’t there? Last time we judged the animation, this time we judge the games.
Did you know that you can beat the original Legend of Zelda without using a sword? No, you did not know that, because it’s not true. But you can beat almost all of it—up until the very last battle.
Call the doctor, Mario 0h-oh.
Let’s celebrate San Diego Comic-Con with a property that embodies all aspects of media—comic books, television, movies, video games, toys—and how that can be a really bad thing.
In decades past, this casing may indeed have housed a Nintendo Entertainment System, but these days it’s home to a decent little gaming PC.
Watching today’s teenagers fumbling around with a game that was second nature to gamers nearly three decades ago is heartwarming, in an evil old bastard sort of way.
In 2011, a guy using the handle Cosbydaf wrote a story on the web about a Godzilla game he decided to revisit when he was a kid. It was a creepypasta—in other words, an internet tall tale intended to scare the hell out of anyone reading it.
For the past few playoff games at Amalie Arena, the Tampa Bay Lightning have used their now-ubiquitous 3-D ice projection system to display a simulation of the classic Nintendo Blades of Steel game onto the playing surface—using the actual goals and everything. It’s the best usage of the technology we’ve seen so far:
