New Super Mario Bros. 2 Info!

Here's everything you need to know about New Super Mario Bros. 2! If you're still debating whether or not you're gonna get this game, you really need to read this post!

Zelda Raps

Note: May contain explict.
I've actuallly been wanting to show off the Smosh Zelda Rap for a while now, but then I got this idea to find some other Zelda Raps and show them off here on this blog, so that's what this post is about!!

Smosh Zelda Rap: This was was posted just a few days ago on November 18th, and is already the top result if you google "Zelda Rap". It's really catch, and I find it just awesome. There is some explict, but all in all, it's an amazing song and video! Also, gonintendo.com had an interview with Anthony (the guy who played Ganondorf), which you can read here.

DJ Ephixa & NoneLikeJoshua: This is probably my personal favorite Zelda Rap. The instrumental part was done by DJ Ephixa (http://www.ephixa.com/), and the rap part was done by NoneLikeJoshua. DJ Ephixa has made 3 other Zelda Remixes, and NoneLikeJoshua has done 2 or 3 more Zelda Raps. I actually had a post a post a while ago where I talked about DJ Ephixa (and some other Zelda Remixer's). Enjoy...

Mario Kart 7 Website is Up

Nintendo always makes great websites for their big games, and now, once again they have made a great website, this time for Mario Kart 7!! They show off the new racers, new items, tracks, items, and more. They even have a 3D section for viewing on your Nintendo 3DS. So if you want to check that out, click here!! But that's about all I have to say today, until then... ~JTA

Make eShop Purchases Without Paying Taxes!!

Don't you hate the eShop with the weird taxes and stuff now?? I can't stand it, I always get weird with some weird amount of money, usually 10¢ short of what I want to pay and it ticks me off! Well, we found a solution...and all you need is your 3DS, and an internet connection!! This tutorial is assuming you've already been to the eShop at least once and filled out the information.
  1. Turn on your 3DS and go to the eShop
  2. Go to Menu (top right) > Settings/Other
  3. Scroll down to the Location Settings
  4. Press Change Address
  5. Enter a Zip Code from a state/province that doesn't use online taxes.
So a working Zip Code would be 92164 (San Diego, California). Please note that this is illegal, although the chances of you getting caught are almost impossible, and the risks are extremely minimum sense all you are really doing is keeping like, 20¢ (or less) for yourself. Although, if you for some reason are caught, you cannot blame me. I will NOT take the blame for your choice. Oh! If you are gonna buy a virtual consol game, you might want to check out THIS POST first! (Or you can just download an ROM of it online...). Anyway, I hope that you guys enjoyed this post, tell me what you think in the comments!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hey everyone! It's Thanksgiving, well, for those of us in the United States at least!! I thought that this would be a good time to thank each and everyone of you guys so much for helping me out and get this far on my blog! We just hit the 10000 hit mark the other day, and I am getting 200-300 views every day!! That is awesome! So thank you guys so much!

As a side note, I am going to have a great tutorial for you guys tomorrow (or tonight at 12:01 AM MST). I'm sure a lot of you guys will really enjoy it and use it wisely. If you guys ever saw my old blog, then this won't be anything new. And there won't be a weekly epic. I'm actually kind of done with them, but NEXT Thursday I'll be posting a new weekly thing known as SEQUEL VS PREQUEL!!

And one last thing! We now have a viewer survey that you can fill out and tell us how good/bad we are doing on this site, and what you want to see changed and stuff like that. So, pleaes go do that, its only 12 questions or so... And I updated the broken download form, so if you know of any broken downloads, head over there! Well thanks again guys! ~JTA777

Super Mario 3D Land Bowser Wallpapers

I promised you guys I was gonna make some wallpapers for Super Mario 3D Land, and between then and now, all I've gotten done is 3 Bowser Wallpapers (and 1 Mario). I know, it's pathetic, but I don't want you guys to be waiting forever for the others. So, take a look at these, and if you like them and want more for the other characters, tell me, and I'll do my best to create some more, and if you don't, I won't.

So yeah... that's them. If you do like them, just say so in the comments, and if you don't, well, I'd rather you didn't say anything. Until then... ~JTA777

The Great Pablo Belmonte...And His Incredible Hoaxes

Pablo Belmonte...He really is incredible at what he does. If you aren't aware of the guy I'm talking about, he is the guy who made the amazing Nintendo On Hoax and released it a few days before E3 2005. He was also the maker of the Super Mario Galaxy DS hoax...And the Majora's Mask Remake Hoax...And the F-Zero Hoax...And the Super Mario Universe Hoax... If you still don't know what/who I'm talking about, just watch this video, showing all of his (good) works that I was able to put together:

Yeah, he made all of that... Unfortunately, none of it was real... Almost all of it looked official until the very end of the Nintendo On video. Press the "View Full Story" button below to read all about each one of these clips and more.

Weekly Epic 4 - Remember Them!!

This weekly epic is dedicated to many characters that have been forgotten, or that we are probably never going to be seeing again, if we ever do... Lets get right to it!

In my opinion, Geno (from Super Mario RPG) is probably one of the most loved characters that never made real return to the gaming world. I never really became a fan of this dude (mainly because I never got past the first 20 minutes of SMRPG), but I know that he was loved, and many people do miss him, and are still looking forward to his return [that's probably never going to happen]. So while you cry (or celebrate) over this fact, check out the image on the left!! This badass piece of art was created by a pretty freaking awesome artist, by the name of Minaya. He/She(/It) seems to be pretty awesome. I've checked out some of his/hers/its artwork, and they do have some pretty awesome stuff, including a new pic of Geno. So if you guys wanna check all that awesomeness out, click on his/her/its name, or on the pic of Geno. While Geno probably was one of the most loved, I'm gonna go onto my favorite (forgotten) villain...

PETA Bashing Mario for Tanooki Suit (And Promoting Violence)???

This story has actually been really popular lately, and usually I don't go over popular stories, but this is one that I felt I had to, and get my opinion out there. So just recently, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) have basically bashed Mario for his Tanooki suit... Pathetic already right?? Wait to you read the rest...

Direct Quote:
When on a mission to rescue the princess, Mario has been known to use any means necessary to defeat his enemy—even wearing the skin of a raccoon dog to give him special powers.

Tanooki may be just a "suit" in Mario games, but in real life, tanuki are raccoon dogs who are skinned alive for their fur. By wearing Tanooki, Mario is sending the message that it's OK to wear fur.

Awesome FANMADE Kirby Hats...

Well, the title says everything you need to know! Some dude (known as HextupleyooDOT) was crazy enough to make a ton of images of these Kirby "hats" (as he calls them). They are pretty awesome, and look official. Although, the sad thing is, most of these hats will never be, and us loyal fans will be stuck hoping forever... Well, I'll show off my favorites, and at the end show some links to even more Kirby Hats, and where you can find all of these... Well, here they are!

Realistic Mario Characters

I personally think that one of the best things about the Mario series is how unrealistic it is. If the Mario series/characters were to be more realistic, it/they would probably end up a lot creepier, like all of the images shown in this post... The image on the right is what Bowser would look like if he were real. That's just freeky... If you have the guts and WANT to see what Yoshis, Koopas, Goombas, Shy Guys, and more look like realisticly, just click the button that says view full post...
Note: I am not responsible for the horrific nightmares these may give you.

Realistic Super Mario World Wallpapers

Super Mario World was like, one of the best Mario games ever. And I know how much you guys like seeing Wallpapers and stuff, so I found some pretty badass realistic looking SMW wallpapers online. (I did not make these and am in no way claming them as my own). I'm not sure if they were actually meant to be made as wallpapers, but that's what I'm gonna say they are. (View the full post to see all 4 of them). These images are pretty large, so if your screen is small, you may have to do some resizing of your own. This first one you can see is probably my least favorite of the bunch, so make sure to check out the other 3 by clicking the button under this image. Anyway, here they are...

Weekly Epic 3 - Scary (& other Nintendo related news)

Hey everyone, its time for yet another weekly epic, even though they aren't very weekly... Anyway, last Monday was Halloween, and Halloween generally has a scary or creepy theme, so I felt that this would be a good time to do that! The Last Weekly Epic I showed you guys had a pretty freaky Kirby image if you wanna check that out... But its time for a new weekly epic, so lets get started!!

The first image I wanted to show you, is my favorite character... zombified, I guess is the correct term. It's Megaman Zero yet again, in an epic zombie form (or whatever you may call that)! This image was created by a DeviantArt user known as hollowzero so just click on his/her name or that creepy image on the right to check out his/her deviantart profile. This image is actually pretty cool. It looks like it was just done in pencil, and really nicely. The helmet still has it's classic shape and smooth looking texture, while Zero himself just looks demonic. His hand is quite large and slightly disfigured, but that just adds to it. This deviantation is actually named "Nightmare Zero" so I guess zombie wasn't the right term... Anyway, its an awesome image, that's all I have to say on the subject of that...

Super Mario 3D Land Commercial

Posted on Nintendo's Youtube Channel yesterday. For a Nintendo commercial I'll say it's pretty good. They've had some rather... interesting commercials in the past. Enjoy...

Well, that was interesting... Tell me what you think!
