You know what? To Hell with an official review of Mario Kart 8. I’d been writing that thing on and off since the game’s release date and I just can’t look at it anymore. Long story short: I LOVE this fucker, and outside of tending to very basic survival behavior it is all I do anymore. All cups have been three starred, all ghostly time trial records shattered and plenty of ass-whipping has been given and received online. So to inject a little life into Shigeru’s List here (which I have big plans for soon), I’ve decided to share with you some of my favorite personal highlight reels from the past couple of months.
Well this doesn’t happen very often so you’d better believe that made it high time to embarrass myself in public by taking a bunch of awkward pictures! There are NINTENDO TOYS in Happy Meals right now. As in THIS VERY MOMENT. Like, you could actually leave your house and go buy them TODAY. This wonderful occurrence equals yours truly waking up long before his comfort hour to snag the complete lot as quickly as possible. The following post is a blow by blow visual re-enactment of said “collecting” and is jam-packed with half assed attempts at jokes courtesy of our very own brand of Nintendork humor.
AYE, this one hurts. According to the headline I just wrote, somebody’s talkin’ some trash! *Does that neck swerve thing* This time the anger stems from one Alex Ward, who in addition to hopping aboard my shit-list, also co-founded Criterion games (aka the studio that made Burnout 2: Point of Impact for GameCube). Mr. Ward let loose quite a string on something called Twitter yesterday, discussing the course of action for his new software development company. Their plans include the intention to produce content for any hardware that will allow them to self publish. Well, not including Nintendo’s struggling home console of course. Apparently there’s quite a bit of bad blood swimming around in regards to both EA and Nintendo’s lack of marketing assistance for their work on the Need For Speed: Most Wanted port last year. A game that was a massive commercial failure, even for a Wii U game. The following images were captured for this article using the internet:
And I promise I’ll start posting again as soon as possible! Real life has been super hectic since the holidays and I haven’t had much time left over to play any video games let alone sit down and try/fail to come up with snarky jokes about them. That poor Link Between Worlds cartridge has been sitting in my 3DS untouched for weeks now! AYE, I’m so out of the loop. Nintendo is still cool right? In the meantime thank you for all of the support this past near half decade.
Nope. Those aren’t sausages or burnt up hot dogs. Our old pals at 7/11 came up with this abomination called the “cheeseburger stick” (see previous WDIELN) a while back and apparently I can’t get enough. One long shaft of hamburger meat with cheddar chunks needled in and slowly cooked for several hours over a hot roller? Genius. I doubled up one night and as you can see, the result is a glorious mess.
I’ve decided to resurrect the “What Did I Eat Last Night” site I made on tumblr a few years back. And by resurrect, I mean I finally remembered the email account/password combo to log in. This should be totally embarrassing.
Saw this tonight with my sister and holy FUCK. It’s a rare thing when a movie actually manages to meet or even surpass your expectations, so you’ve got to really roll around in it when it does. Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new classic.
