Miyamoto Jealous That He Didn’t Invent Angry Birds, Maybe a Time Machine Will Be His Next Project?

Shigeru Miyamoto has a lot to be proud of.  He created some of the most beloved video game characters in the universe, yet he has one regret.  He wishes that he had invented Angry Birds.  How can such a simplistic mobile game create a hint of jealousy when you are the father of such iconic characters such as Zelda/Link, Donkey Kong and Mario? Now Miyamoto did not actually say the word “jealo...

8 Bit Dreams Project

As children, adolescents, and adults, we have all wasted  time doodling our favorite video game characters.  I can remember customizing Samus with new weapons and new armors (until my mind was blown when I finished the game) and imagining different worlds for her to explore.  I am sure many of you have done the same. Artist Campbell Whyte, Born in Perth, Western Australia in the year 1984, took th...

Would New Games for Old Systems Really Be That Bad?

Recently, Dan posted an article about a new Super Nintendo game in development.  As I read the article I felt a chill of excitement run down my spine and started thinking, would this really be a bad idea if it continued?

I’m Sorry, I Can’t Come To Work Today, I Hurt Myself Playing Nintendo!

When I mention “Nintendo Thumb”, all of the old school gamers know what I am talking about.  The symptoms are the blistering, paraesthesia and swelling of the thumbs, mainly through use of the use o the directional pad. As much as I love the classic Nintendo controller, it was actually pretty dangerous for gamers.  It was not ergonomic, and its boxy, hard edges put a lot of strain on y...

But, did you know that things could have been different? Back in the early 90’s Nintendo Nintendo knew that the SNES was a po...
