Seriously! Every gamer has felt this phenomenon, like a divine hand cheering you on.
Does anyone remember “Nick Arcade” from back in the day? Apparently, it was a technical marvel.

This bill will be a fatal blow to classic gaming :( …For example: This puts all of those gameplay videos on YouTube in danger.
Apple and Microsoft join Nintendo et al in support of Internet-censorship bill
Initially we though Apple and Microsoft had come out in support of sopaipillas, the delicious and flaky fried pastry treat served in parts of Central and South America, as well as the North American Southwest. Imagine our surprise when we discovered that what they’re actually supporting is the far less scrumptious SOPA, or “Stop Online Piracy Act” which Nintendo, EA and Sony have already put their weight behind.
The supporting statement didn’t come from Apple or Microsoft directly, but rather through the Business Software Alliance; a trade group that represents both Apple and Microsoft, as well as other tech giants such as Adobe, McAfee, Dell and Symantec. Meanwhile, Internet-technology companies like Google, Facebook, Twitter and Zynga have taken a vocal
anti-sopaipillaanti-SOPA stance, going so far as to purchase a full-page ad in the New York Times.
We’re pretty worried this bill is going to pass, truth be told, so we’re going to take this opportunity to say everything we won’t be able to say once Internet censorship becomes the norm. Okay, ready?
Hey Internet, [REMOVED].
Here’s one way we can help: http://americancensorship.org/
What are your thoughts about this killer bill?

This week is the, believe it or not, 20th anniversary of the release of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in North America. Check out the links below to learn about the SNES’s history and relish in its glory! (And it should go without saying that if you want to experience the SNES’s best RPGs, my FantasyAnime is the best place! ^_^ )
• The Strange, Sad Case of the North American Super Nintendo - An interesting piece of history about the Super Nintendo.
• RPG Lunch Break: Super Nintendo - RPG Lunch Break is FantasyAnime’s subsite where it covers non RPGs; this is the SNES section. Here I cover all of my favorite games with mini reviews, screen shots, and the game for download.
• Super Nintendo @Wikipedia - Of course, there’s always Wikipedia if you want a full history lesson.
• The SNES CD Story - Gaming History @YouTube - A comprehensive, researched history of the Super Nintendo CD! Was it made by Nintendo? Sony? Philips? Or a combination? Watch this video to find out!
So Disney is making a movie inspired by classic gaming. Very interesting! I have a feeling it’s going to be like Scott Pilgrim Vs The World because (1) it’s a popular classic gaming inspired movie, (2) Disney likes to copy.
MCV reports that during Disney’s D23 fan expo, Disney announced the next film under its Disney Animation studio: Wreck-It Ralph, about a destructive 8-bit game character looking for a game in which he can be a hero — like his in-game rival, Fix-It Felix.
The film, due in November next year, features cameos from licensed game characters, including a Pac-Man ghost, who is part of Ralph’s video game character support group. FirstShowing posted images of the show floor display, including a themed arcade machine. It also reports that John C. Reilly will voice Ralph, with 30 Rock’s Jack McBrayer as Fix-It Felix.
We look forward to the inevitable tie-in games, based on the movie based on video games.
So in my FantasyAnime’s Seiken Densetsu 3 shrine, I have a patch that allows you to be able to play 3 players in Seiken Densetsu 3 (SNES), just like in Secret of Mana. Because by default, the game only lets you play up to 2 players. This patch can be downloaded from my shrine’s Downloads page.
Never heard of this game? It’s the sequel to Secret of Mana on the SNES. It was never officially released in the NA. It’s available in English because in the year 2000 it was translated to English by fans for fans, for play on video game emulators. It’s a really awesome game!! I highly recommend it. You can download it from the Downloads page.
