Retro Music Montage

We all love music, it can do so many things for us, like relax us, bring back memories, and so much more. Some guy on youtube known as DragonStarDT basically taken a bunch of retro music from games like Super Mario Bros, MegaMan, The Legend of Zelda, Sonic the Hedgehog, Final Fantasy, ect. and mixed it into a 10 minute song. Here it is:

DOWNLOADS REMOVED Legend of Zelda Orchestra CD

Earlier this year, The Legend of Zelda - Skyward Sword was released, and Nintendo was generous enough to include a CD with it that had 8 tracks, all are orchestrated. Well, I finally got my hands on one of them, and I have them ready to download. Maybe you didn't get the game yet, or maybe you don't want the game, or maybe you don't know how to use a CD...whatever the reason you maynot already have the tracks, I don't care, but if you do want them...

So download those and enjoy. All of them came directly from the CD and are compressed in a .Zip folder as of now. I guess you could consider this as a late Christmas present from me or something...I dunno. I hope you enjoy them! ~JTA

Thank You Nintendo

This has been one of the best years for the fans of Nintendo, and I felt like writing this post just to Thank Nintendo. So let's see, what has happened this year?

1. The Nintendo 3DS
A new handheld introduced by Nintendo lead to many things, such as...
  • A new way to experience gaming
  • Many new games (and old remakes)
  • Ambassador Games
  • Free stuff
  • Things to wait for.
2. Free Stuff
If you were one of the many who bought the 3DS before that huge price drop, then by now you already have 20 free games. Not only that, but Nintendo also released [3D classics] Excitebike, Pokedex, Nintendo Video, Legend of Zelda 4 Swords, Swapnote, Video Trailers, and plenty of other things for everyone.

3. New Games & Old Remakes
While the beginning of the year wasn't so great, Nintendo ended the year with a BANG. With the releases of Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7, The Legend of Zelda - Skyward Sword, Kirby Return to Dreamland, Cave Story 3D, Star Fox 64 3D, and plenty of others. Nintendo also had a few good releases earlier this year such as Super Street Fighter 3D Edition, The Legend of Zelda - Ocarina of Time 3D, and a few others.

4. Things to Wait For
Nintendo proved to their fans that they will never run dry, mainly at E3 when they gave us deeper looks into games such as Paper Mario 3DS, Kid Icarus, Tekken Prime Edition, the Wii U, and many other games (that I can't list due to my horrible memory). They're making these games too fast...

So thank you Nintendo, thank you for this year, I can't wait to see what you have in store for us next year! ~JTA

For all the Smash Bros Fans

Super Smash Bros Brawl was released over 3 years ago, and let's face it, the next Smash Bros Game won't be released for at least another year or 2. (At E3 2011 it WAS announced but they haven't even started it yet). A while ago we did post some Smash Bros 4 Rumors, if that would be interesting for you, but if you really want a treat, then read on...

Some dude (from McLeodGaming) decided to make a Flash game for Smash Bros, also known as Super Smash Flash. Although it is a flash game, it is way more amazing than I thought it would be. Although you only start out with 10 characters doesn't automatically mean that you can't unlock more... That's right, the guy actually coded the game made is so much like the real Smash Bros games that you can unlock things, use items, change stages, and a lot more. It's actually pretty incredible. It's even avalible for Mac users. I'm pretty sure that the controls are customizable, and he even added new characters, my favorite is MegaMan.

Not sure if you want it yet? Click the view full post button below, you can play it directly from my site! If you want the full version, (which only takes a few seconds to download), click here (if you're on a Mac, click here), or go to the downloads page on McLeodGaming for more updates if you saw this post too late. Check out more of McLeodGaming games and other stuff by clicking here. Anyways, that's all I have to post for you today, I hope that you guys enjoy this, and please tell me what you think.

The title says it all. To download them, just go to Settings/Other and scroll down until you find your downloaded titles. Scroll to the very end of the list, and you should be able to download them. So go already! And if you're not an ambassador, I'm sorry... ~JTA777

The Transformation of Nintendo Consoles in 30 Seconds

The other day I was messing around on youtube, and on one of my buddy's favorited lists was this video. In this video, it shows all of the Nintendo Consoles transform from one to another in 30 seconds. I was pretty amazed when I first saw it, and I thought it'd make a fairly good post to show you guys. Here it is:

GBA Ambassador Games Announced

It's about time Nintendo tells us what we're getting for being ambassadors... Here's the list:
  • F-Zero: Maximum Velocity
  • Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi’s Island
  • Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap
  • Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
  • Kirby & The Amazing Mirror
  • Mario Kart: Super Circuit
  • Mario vs. Donkey Kong
  • Metroid Fusion
  • Wario Land 4
  • WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgames
They should be here on December 16th for the reseidents of Japan and Europe. Nothing has been said about America yet, but it's safe to assume that they will also come on the 16th.

We Are Rockmen!

In my opinion, music is one of the best things in this world... Well, Capcom had their team basically remix a few of the popular Megaman songs (from a wide variety of games), and turn it into an Album they call "We Are Rock Men!" Here's my personal favorite:

Circle Pad Pro gives player 480 hours of gameplay?!

So you know that new thing that Nintendo is coming out with, that gives the player a second circle pad to play with on the 3DS? Well, Nintendo was smart, and added a batery pack on it. It does require a AAA battery to run, but those things are cheap, and just one of them power 480 hours of gameplay? It almost sounds too good to be true. It hits stores in Europe on January 27th, but I have no idea when its coming to the America's region. I'm pretty sure it only costs around $20 dollars. This thing sound pretty awesome, too bad it's not coming out for the holidays...

Cave Story Remix'd Soundtrack!! (Free download)

So this soundtrack has been out for quite some time (way before Cave Story 3DS was released), and downloaded it, and to my surprise, it was pretty awesome. Well, I had totally forgotten about it until last night, and I haven't had a very good post on the blog in quite some time, so I figured you guys would like this. The download comes with 29 songs by a bunch of pretty awesome DJ's, and the download is in .zip format. If you're interested, just click here, or head over to the downloads page. But thats all for today, until then... ~JTA

Bill S.978...The End? & Other news

For residents of the United States Only

Back in May 2011, a group of morons proposed a Bill that prohibited the posting of copyrighted Material on the internet (just another reason to hate the government). This bill basically prohibits the posting/publishing of copyrighted material on the internet (like I just said). So, what does that mean for us? Well, it basically means that this site, along with just about every other website, youtube (or any other) video, forum, image, and all that stuff that has to do with gaming, movies, books, characters, or anything esle copyrighted will be taken down one by one. So, in a way, it could mean the end of this site and so many other things. This Bill seems to controdict our right to freedom of speech. Right now, Nintendo could take this site down if they wanted because, well, I'm talking about there stuff, but this Bill would take the site down without the permission of me or Nintendo.

This Bill would be awful, and affect many people outside of the United States as well... This Bill probably won't be passed, but if it is... we're screwed. I don't know if we are allowed to vote on this or not, but we are, and you're over the age of 18, PLEASE vote against it!! Thank you. If this Bill does happen to come true, then you will know, and this wont be the only site that goes down...

On a seperate note, this site is starting to feel kind of like a job (which is a bad thing), and I don't really always want to be working on the site and stuff, so posts won't be updated near as much, but if you do have something cool that you think I could talk about, just send me a link or something. I'm not leaving the site, just not gonna be as active. If you want to join the site (help write posts), please contact me, or ask in the comments, and I'll consider it! But thats all for today, until then...
