    Happy 34th Birthday to the NES

    Happy 34th Birthday to the NES

    In the fall of 1985, a video game console that would end up being popular to not only kids, but also adults was released. That game system was the Nintendo Entertainment System, or NES for short. Every kid on Christmas wanted one, and I have a story to tell about the NES that took place almost four years later, but before I share it, here's a fun fact about it that would surprise you. These are the three best-selling NES games:

    'Spider-Man' (Game Boy Advance Review)

    'Spider-Man' (Game Boy Advance Review)

    Who am I? You sure you want to know? The story of this game is not for the faint of heart. If somebody told you it was a good game, if somebody said I was your average gamer, not a care in the world… Somebody lied. But let me assure you, this, like any other game worth reviewing, is all about a movie. Spider-Man. The movie I loved since before I even liked movies. I’d like to tell you this game was good, heck I’d settle for decent. Too bad this game is the epitome of bad.

    The 5 Creepiest 'Ocarina of Time' Enemies

    It's often mentioned as one of the best games ever made, but it's no secret that Ocarina of Time has its dark sides, as many of the Zelda games do. Link meets a large number of strange creatures on his journeys, and this game is full of them. Here's my list of the five creepiest enemies from the game:

    'Mario Kart Tour' Has Me in a Frenzy

    'Mario Kart Tour' Has Me in a Frenzy

    So, I’m old school. I started playing Mario Kart on the Super Nintendo. Back then, Rainbow Road hurt your eyes, but you just pushed past it to secure that win. Nintendo’s newest mobile game, Mario Kart Tour, has some of those great courses, and a bunch of new ones as well. This game is my newest obsession, and for good reason—Nintendo did a great job.

    More Indie Games That Deserve Representation in Super Smash Bros.

    Well, then: After I thought he really couldn't outdo himself after Ridley, Joker, Banjo-Kazooie, and even the Piranha Plant combined, Masahiro Sakurai-san has proven yet again that he can still totally break the Smash Bros. fanbase with his incredible announcements.

    Happy 130th Birthday to Nintendo

    Happy 130th Birthday to Nintendo

    Greetings, my Vocal readers. Today, a video game company has reached an important milestone. That company is Nintendo and they are celebrating their 130th birthday. Just to clarify, I'm talking about the company and not the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). Founded on September 23, 1889 by Fusajiro Yamauchi, it was originally started as a trading card company. Nintendo didn't start creating home game systems until 1974, with the release of the Color TV-Game three years later. It was Japan's best-selling first-generation console at the time, and sold more than three million units. Over the next four decades, Nintendo would release many home and handheld consoles. The 1985 release of Super Mario Bros. for the NES sold 40 million copies, making it one of the best-selling video games in the Mario series. Mario has been the face of the company since the early 1980s, and since 1990, he has been voiced by actor, and voice actor, Charles Martinet. Also, every year on March 10 is National Mario Day. In this article, I'm going to share some of my favorite Nintendo games that I grew up playing and still enjoy today. These are not in any particular order.

    Earth's Mightiest Elite Four

    Earth's Mightiest Elite Four

    I have a strong love for Pokemon, I first got into it when it debuted here in the US and have been a Pokefan ever since. It has influenced my writing and, over the last several months, I have written several articles detailing teams I would use if I was a Pokemon Trainer, member of an Elite Four, or even Pokemon Champion.

    'Faxanadu' on the NES

    'Faxanadu' on the NES

    Faxanadu was licensed by computer game developer Nihon Falcom, which is a pretty good company. They continue to develop games today, and have most recently helped to release The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV. They're also famous for the Ys series. Faxanadu came out in the United States in 1989 as a first-party title under license from Hudson Soft.

    Just a Normal Pokemon Ranger

    A few months ago, I posted two teams that I would use if I were Pokemon Champion. These teams were not defined by a single type, but were built around specific themes relating to my love of literature.
