Nintendo NX and Zelda NX confirmed for 2016 (apparently)

Update: Interesting. . . . The video has now been removed by the user. Here’s another video on the same leak though:

Original Post:

Who knows if you can truly believe the hype but seeing as this guy sounds so absolute and certain (and he has an honest voice), I figured I might as well post this one. It’s always fun to jump onboard the hype train. 😀

Not that I’m particularly hyped for NX at all at this point. I’m far more hyped for the upcoming VR headsets from HTC/Valve and Oculus to be honest—VR is the most exciting thing happening in gaming and entertainment right now as far as I’m concerned—but that’s for another post. A post just like this:

Why am I so Excited About Virtual Reality?

Where’s The Fair Use?

YouTube’s copyright claim and takedown system really is totally broken at this point in time. In many ways it’s pretty much illegal, or at least a whole lot of the copyright and takedown claims are abusing the law to the point of absurdity (and not in a funny way). The following video sums up the issue rather well:

If I had the means to do so, I’d actually try to figure out a way to bring some kind of class action lawsuit against Google and/or a bunch of the companies involved in these insidious claims—because this really needs to be addressed sooner rather than later—but I don’t, so for now I’ll just share the message.

And if you’ve ever watched and enjoyed any YouTube videos created by a movie reviewer, video game fan channel, Longplay creator, or whatever, then you should probably share the message too.

Before Mario, the book

I’d definitely love to own a copy of this book:

Nintendo has been around for a long time, and as it happens it actually made a lot of games and toys before it became famous for being “the house that built Mario”. It even ran a love hotel at one point too. 😮

Before Mario is a great little book that details many of the cool toys and gadgets Nintendo created during some of its earlier years, and its well worth checking out if you can get your hands on it.

I just backed Invisigun Heroes on Kickstarter

Yeah, those screenshots look kinda simple and empty—I know that’s what you’re thinking—but there’s more to this game than meets the eye.

Watch the video below and you’ll see what I mean. 😉

Check out the game’s Kickstarter page, and maybe even support the project if you like what you see, because it’s actually a very cool idea.
