Ninfest Says Goodbye For Now. Thank You For Playing!

Posted by Streex on October 21, 2014 at 12:25 AM Comments comments (2)

Hello Ninfest Nation. It brings me great sadness that I'm going to put Ninfest on hold for an indefinite period of time. Life has gotten too busy for me to continue to run the site by myself. Maybe down the road I'll find myself with less responsibility to get Ninfest running again, or maybe I'll find a group of Nintendo enthusiasts that want to run the site with me, but right now it isn't feas...

Nintendo No Longer Has Time For Pathetic Gamers

Posted by Streex on August 29, 2014 at 4:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Shigeru Miyamoto has a knack of saying things Nintendo doesn't always want him to say. He gives away too much on games he's thinking about making and can share too much on the next direction of the company. The latter has just happened, and very bluntly at that. It's no secret that casual gamers are off playing casual games on mobile devices because they like to waste time gaming instead of investing it. Now Miyamoto h...

Multi-Game Nintendo Direct, Where Art Thou?

Posted by Streex on August 24, 2014 at 10:50 PM Comments comments (0)

You know what I miss? I miss the Nintendo Direct that came out every other month, filled with at least 6 titles to look forward to in the near future. It was bliss, and a constant reminder of the great things to come. Unfortunately, 2014 has been pretty dry with only a couple Nintendo Directs made specifically for one game. Is Nintendo abandoning the all encompassing Nintendo Direct before it even started, or is this po...

Video :: The World's Biggest Zelda Fan Leaves Us With The Best Memories

Posted by Streex on August 12, 2014 at 2:55 AM Comments comments (0)

An incredibly brilliant actor, standup comedian, human being, and gamer. Robin Williams left us today at 63 years young, but no one is more heartbroken than his family and daughter Zelda, who he named after Zelda from The Legend of Zelda series. The man made us all laugh through countless movies and acts on stage, we are all at such a great loss. I personally first became amused with Robin watching him act as an oddball...

Yoshi's Prehistoric Full Name Excavated From Nintendo Archives

Posted by Streex on August 11, 2014 at 1:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Wiki updaters everywhere are running around rampantly, trying to change historical logs at this latest discovery. Yoshi is not simply just Yoshi, NO! He has a real name that I'm sure he only uses on DMV and job applications, like most of us. According to an official Nintendo character guide from 1993, his full name is T. Yoshisaur Munchakoopas. Well this is just great because now the plot thickens. What does the T...

Is Retro Game Music Better Than Game Music Of Today?

Posted by Streex on August 10, 2014 at 11:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Whenever I find myself humming a tune from a game, it's always from something I played years ago. NES and Super NES game music seems to be permanently stuck in my head, but very rarely can I say the same about anything released in the last 5 years. One thing that easily sticks out is that game music back then looped over and over. Usually a 30 second to 1 minute track would repeat, therefore grinding it into our heads. ...

Journalist Claims To Know Iwata Is On Hot Seat

Posted by Streex on August 2, 2014 at 10:25 PM Comments comments (0)

These days it seems some people will go to great lengths to try and convince Nintendo to put their games on mobile platforms. This time a journalist claims to know that other managers at Nintendo feel this way as well and are trying to get rid of Iwata, since he sits at the top, and apparently is the only one that feels it would be a bad move. The article in question is probably bogus because it reads more like fan fict...

The votes have been tallied. We asked you if you had ever intentionally destroyed one of your video games. 17 votes arrived, and we have a tie!

I've never destroyed a game on purpose. Once I accidentally dropped and ran over my copy of Dragon Warrior for NE...

club.Nintendo Rewards Elite Members with a Slap in the Face

Posted by Streex on July 19, 2014 at 10:30 PM Comments comments (0)

American club.Nintendo has truly reached rock bottom. While members of club.Nintendo all around the world still get great gifts every year for being a gold or platinum elite member, the US gets to pick from a small selection of digital games. The biggest problem here is that many elite members already own these games. Why would they want to download them again to the same console they already own them on? At this point Ni...
