It’s the 25th anniversary of the release of the classic platformer, Super Mario Bros., and I figured I had to do something to celebrate – but what? Broadcast a 25-hour livestream of nothing but Mario games? Too bandwith-consuming. Write a list of the best Mario games? Too subjective. Finally review Super Mario Galaxy 2? Too logical. So instead here are a bunch of fun facts about our favourite pudgy plumber.


Remember how I said these were technically GamingEverything AND NintendoEverything podcasts? Well, they aren’t anymore! These are 100% NintendoEverything podcasts from now on. Though, I’ll admit, there’s not too much different if you listened to previous podcasts aside from what news we cover. Regardless:

This show we just cover some general stuff about Nintendo. I don’t think I’ll be the first to say it’s not the best we can do, but hey, it’s Nintendo, and it’s a podcast. Have at it, and post any questions you may have for us here!


The Wii was released in 2006. Five years before that the GameCube was released. Same for the Nintendo 64. If history holds true, we could be seeing Nintendo’s newest console as soon as 2011. What features would it sport? Which third party developers will make games on it? What does Nintendo need to do in order to preserve itself as #1 in the next cycle of consoles? Let’s take a look, shall we?


After the barren wasteland that was August’s release schedule, the games of September are looking to be a massive improvement (at least the ones that aren’t out already). Whether you like RPGs, puzzle games, or music by Rush, there’s something for just about everyone this month. Read on to see what the biggest games coming to Wii and DS this September are.


There are a lot of really strange adaptations of videos games out there. We all know how weird the Super Mario Bros. movie is and how much the Zelda cartoon deviated from its source material, but I wanted to take a look at some of the more obscure adaptations of Nintendo games there are out there. I figured I should start by looking at what was probably the first example of a Nintendo title being turned into some other form of media, so let’s take a look back at the Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr. cartoons that aired as part of CBS’s Saturday Supercade block from 1983 to 1985.


Hey folks – Just a quick note from Valay. Wanted to take a second to introduce you to Peter, who is the author of this feature. He’s a new editor on the site, and will be taking over Elliot’s role. So expect to see a number of features/reviews from his in the future!

Yesterday I went through the list of games I want to buy from now until the end of the year. It astounded me to find out that all but two are Wii games. It’s true, there are five games coming out from now until the end of the year that are highly interesting titles. This would mark the largest growth of my collection since I bought the Wii in which I bought two games at the same time. Most of you can probably figure out what these five games are going to be, but for those who don’t? I’m more than happy to talk about them.


Update: Game Night is now over! Winners will be announced very soon.

Note: Game night will start at 6:30. Come gather in the IRC and chat until we start!

You all know the drill I’m sure: Hop in the IRC and play some Mario Kart Wii with all of us from the site! Remember, those in first and second place win a free copy of Grease: The Video Game for Wii or DS!



Howdy all! The podcast is up on Sunday this week because I’ve been busy, but it should be a lot of fun for everyone now that it’s up. I had a lot of fun with this show as we go over things like recent news, games we’ve been playing, and all the regular jazz that makes this what it is. Enjoy!
