In their January issue, Nintendo Power compiled a fun list of New Year’s resolutions for your “favorite and not-so-favorite video game characters.” Here are the ones that made me chuckle, if not outright laugh in the case of Starman:
- Pitt: Stop fighting it and legally change his name to Kid Icarus.
- Phoenix Wright: Stop going to Sonic’s barber.
- Shy Guy: Read a few books on self-esteem.
- Samus: Destroy eight more planets and drive at least two more species into extinction in the name of galactic peace.
- Link: Take some classes on public speaking.
- Starman from Pro Wrestling: Cut eyeholes in mask.
- Dog from Duck Hunt: Stop taking pleasure from other people’s misfortunes.
- Kin Corn Darn: Change his nickname from “a living karate tool” to something less insulting.
- Professor Layton: Grow a beard and become the world’s top Abraham Lincoln impersonator.
Any resolutions you’d like to make on behalf of a video game character?
