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!

Epic Nintendo Guitar Covers!!

Games and music are some of the greatest things this world will ever see, and a combination of the two are even better. There are tons of musicians out there covering songs from all sorts of different games, from Zelda to Halo to Mario to Final Fantasy to so many others. However, I think I have found one of the greatest musicians ever. He is known as CSGuitar89, but let's just call him Casper (as that's his name).

So what's so great about him, and why is he better than the rest? Well first of all, he is extremely professional in the way he records his songs; so much so, I'll bet you can't find any mistakes in any of his songs. So you're probably thinking, "Yeah, but I know tons of other musicians who do that." Well that's true, so what else makes him special? In every song that he covers, he plays the lead, clean, bass, rhythm, and harmony, and then when he makes the video, he puts all of these together which only makes the song better. He even makes custom backing tracks (which is the drums and other instruments in the background). The greatest thing about Casper has probably got to be that he makes the tabs/chords/backing tracks/mp3s/etc. for every song that he covers, available for download (for free)!! So if you've ever wanted to learn any of the songs that he's covered...well, you're in luck!

Casper's YouTube account is www.youtube.com/csguitar89 (which currently has 58 videos on it) and has a great website which can be seen at http://www.csguitar89.com/ . On the website you can download everything listed above (including tabs)!! He's truly amazing, and you should check him out sometime, if you're too lazy to go to his YouTube page, here's one my personal favorites from him:


Ultimately, he's an amazing musician, and he should get more recognition for his works. I highly encourage you to support him. Just go watch some of his videos, comment, like, subscribe, anything really. He's awesome and deserves it. I really don't know what he'll be doing next, but I hope he does one (or more) of the following before I die:
Anyways, that's all I have to say about CSGuitar89. Until next time...

Mari0...

I'm not sure if there are any Portal fans reading this blog, but if they are, this is definitely the post for them. So you're probably wondering, what is Mari0? Well in the title Mari0, the 0 (instead of the o) is representing a portal. Now, Mario has never had any connection to the Portal games, but now, thanks to a bunch of crazy fans of both Mario and Portal, the worlds have crossed, and a free game has come out of it! Now, the game itself doesn't seem like much at first, but once you spend a little time on it, it can be pretty entertaining. Now, it is true that it is the same exact original Super Mario levels, but there is also...
  • A level editor
  • Simultaneous multiplayer
  • Hat editor
  • Skin and hat color editor
  • Portal color editor
  • And a lot more
The game is 100% free, and can be downloaded on Windows, OSX, or Linux platforms. Or, if you really want, you can even download the source code. Anyway, I really haven't spent that much time on it, but I can guaratee that you will enjoy it! Here are the downloads for each platform:

Some News

Hey guys, well, I'm very busy outside of the blog, and I don't have much time to post stuff. And honestly, I don't even know what to post anymore. I really do want to have a lot of more recent Nintendo news, but I don't have time for that...If anyone would be up for working on the blog, please contact me on one of the recent posts. Tell me your email, and I'll send you some mail asking what you want to do on the blog, and just asking how much time you have and whatnot. The comments are moderated before they are posted, so you don't need to worry about anyone else getting your email.

Also, I haven't been working on any wallpapers lately, mainly because I have no idea what I should be working on... Just tell me what you guys want to see in the comments. I'll take requests, just give me something to work on! Please!

Anyways, that's about all, until then...
