NES Game Saves: Nearing Extinction?

  Everybody feels a bit of nostalgia at times. For many the NES was one of our first real gaming consoles.  The love affair we had with it provided many hours of late night rendezvous and satisfying weekends. As the nostalgia overcomes you, the butterflies in your stomach glide you to the shelf that has collected a base of dust.  the frowny face hastily drawn on the boxy beautifulness. Though...

Zelda Pacman: Two Great Games in One?

In our last post we showed you Super Mario Crossover 2.0  in which Link makes an appearance in a Mario game. Well now Link is at it again and has made his way into another classic game. Nothing gets much better than playing classic Nintendo games and two great ones combine here in a remake of Pacman with a Zelda Theme. Our friends over at Zelda Universe found this version of one of the most classi...

If the most interesting man in the world listened to music, he would listen to Nintentunes!

NES – Bionic Commando Back in the days when most of my gaming experiences came from borrowing games from other people, and my uncle was the biggest gamer I knew (which also made him the coolest), I would spend many a weekend visiting family with all of us huddled around the NES waiting for our turn. Bionic Commando lended itself well to ‘die and pass the contoller’ style gameplay, and I ...

Reptile is this week’s Nintentunes biggest fan

Remember when you were a wee little child and asked your parents for a dog but you couldn’t have one because of your little sisters allergies and were given a pet lizard instead? This week’s edition of Nintentunes is dedicated to that as it is an all reptile edition. This week we will go dinosaur hunting, eat sewer pizza, and even talk to our reptile mayors in the city. Join us, and as always,...

Nintentunes: where is all the winter weather edition

I live in New Mexico. New Mexico is primarily a desert. Despite this fact, I can hardly remember a winter in recent memory that has been so warm and precipitation free. I mean come on, this year I have been in shorts and a long sleeve shirt for the majority of the season, when in years past you couldn’t catch me without at least three layers on. What’s the deal mother nature! With that said, h...

Nintentunes is on now!

In my short time as an Infendo contributor, Nintentunes has been one of my favorite parts about writing for the site. Although not everyone may care for the weekly (sometimes) segment, I love reliving video games through the fantastic music emerged throughout the years. If you love video game music as much as I do, click on through and enjoy the pure bliss that is Nintentunes!

Nintentunes celebrates Mario Kart 7 so this week it’s an all racer edition!

There is no way that I am about to jump online with Mario Kart 7 tonight. Why you ask? Well embarrassment for one, and I usually like to finish the single player game first to get a feel for the tracks. Oh yeah, and I don’t want to get smoked ever single race.  In celebration of the launch of Mario Kart 7, this week Nintentunes will visit the wide world of racers on Nintendo consoles. If yo...

This Zelda reminiscing will make you smile

Great essay by Game Informer’s Jeff Cork on struggling to find a copy of the Legend of Zelda in 1987.

Nintentunes would like to remind you that Skyward Sword is only 14 days away

It seems that not much attention is being given to what will perhaps be one the best games in the franchise by the mainstream gaming media with other big name titles dropping such as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but rest assured that we here at Infendo are chomping at the bit to get our hands on the game. In fact, if given the opportunity to play the game of rece...

Did you know? Zelda was originally called “Hyrule Fantasy”

To get you more hyped than you already are for Zelda’s next romp on Nov. 20, read that and other 1986 factoids at Zelda Universe. Thanks, Cody

Nintentunes: Columbus day edition

NES – Operation Wolf Operation Wolf was one of the first games I remember wanting to buy because I first played it at an arcade. Operation Wolf was ported to every console under the sun at the time, but only the NES and Sega Master System versions featured the all important light gun support. The game was brutally hard, as were many  ported games that were originally intended to eat all you...

Nintentunes: Short but sweet edition

So as you may have noticed, I have been absent from the site this week and I’m here to tell you why. My girlfriend of five and a half years and I split up recently, so on top of moving and working, I have been trying to keep up with my studies and haven’t had much time to post. Now that I am all settled in and again have Internet access, I can’t wait to dive back in to the world of Nintendo ...
