YouTube Spotlight: Super Smash Bros – Did You Know Gaming?

In preparation for today’s Super Smash Bros. Direct, I thought I’d share this Did You Know Gaming? video on the Smash Bros. series. It’s very informative, entertaining, and well narrated. Click above to learn, rapid fire style, about the series’ origins, characters that may have made it into the series, and other interesting facts. When it comes to characters that were cons...

YouTube Spotlight: Why You Should Buy a Wii U in 2014

I don’t always agree with online gaming site GameSpot, particularly concerning their decision to award The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword a 7/10 score, but there’s always something to disagree with, and often something to agree with when it comes to any online publication. Today’s YouTube Spotlight video may seem optimistic based on its title, but while praising Nintendo for havi...

YouTube Spotlight: Smooth McGroove

Here we go with another YouTube Spotlight, and this one promises to be something special. You may or may not be familiar with YouTuber Smooth McGroove. If you are: good for you. If not: it’s never too late.

YouTube Spotlight: GilvaSunner

Fans of GilvaSunner’s YouTube channel know that he uploads Nintendo soundtracks with exceptional quality. After playing two of my favorite games from last year, Super Mario 3D World and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, I was excited for Gilva to upload the game’s soundtracks. A Link Between Worlds came quickly, and you can check out the playlist here. The Super Mario 3D Worl...

YouTube Spotlight: How Tough are NES Games?

YouTube user Rinry takes a systematic approach to determining how tough NES game cartridges are, which makes her unexpected humor all the more entertaining. She also tests the cartridges with some outrageous situations, such as strapping one to fireworks and dropping another from a height of three stories. If you like Rinry’s How Tough are NES Games? video, then check out her follow-up, How ...

YouTube Spotlight: TheJWittz

Today’s edition of YouTube Spotlight takes a look at user TheJWittz’s channel, which, until very recently, covered mainly Pokemon material. As our Pokemon-loving friend explains in his top 10 Nintendo games of 2013 video above, however, he has plans to release more content on all things Nintendo, including weekly news round-ups. If you don’t already use YouTube regularly, now is ...

YouTube Spotlight: Xbox One vs Nintendo 64

I remember a time when YouTube was in its humble infancy. It has been interesting to watch the video-sharing site go from there to its current status of the single most popular video-sharing site on the web. If you’re like me, you’re a YouTube regular, using it to watch everything from the latest in-the-millions-of-views baby videos to the most specific and niche Nintendo fan videos ou...

Youtube Tuesday: Super-Fast!! Super Mario World Song

Do you think you know everything there is to know about Super Mario World? I thought I did until I saw this video. Apparently in the last special stage you can collect green berries with yoshi that add 20 seconds to your timer, since it is a really long level. Yet, the fascinating trick is that if you use the berries right you can reverse time to a point before the song speeds up. Basically allowi...

Youtube Tuesday: Mario’s Summer Activities

Wonder what Mario is doing this summer? check out the video! I mean there’s no way he’s getting ready for a summer competition that will be open to two and four player teams. Where you can compete with friends and family to win prizes and bragging rights. No way any of this is happening.

Youtube Tuesday – Stop Motion NES

Sean sent this video my way a couple of days ago and I’m honestly surprised he didn’t post it. If you haven’t seen it yet… you are sure going to be in for a surprise of what I call nostalgic joy. Side note, anyone readers out there do animation or do stop motion claymation or anything? If you do and have anything Nintendo related be sure to send it our way.
