Sean Unboxes a Wii Mini

Never mind that it can’t get online. (Most of the online services were discontinued over the summer of 2013.) Never mind that there’s no SD card slot. (Who needs one when you can’t get online?) Never mind that there’s no component out. (It’s only 480p anyway.) Never mind that there are no GameCube components. (The last revision of the Wii removed them anyway.) This one comes with a Wii MotionPlus remote. And it’s red.

Famicom Dojo: Minus Worlds

Vinnk and Sean return to video with the 8-bit classic Super Mario Bros., and the game glitch so famous that reputable magazine articles have been written about it.

But this is the Internet! We will show you how to perform this trick (with video), and explain why it works, and what other variations exist besides the well-known “Water Level of Death”.

See more video after the jump!

Six Years of Famicom Dojo!

The Famicom turned 30 on Monday. Famicom Dojo turned six on Tuesday! Coincidence? Mostly!

For perhaps the first time ever, I explain the origins of Famicom Dojo. See more after the jump!

MAGFest 2013: Famicom Data Recorder Preview

Sean shares a couple of items from his MAGFest haul! This year he procured a Family Keyboard and Famicom Data Recorder from Mad-Gear. It’s a pretty cool, really strange peripheral that saved game data for a very small number of games before the Famicom Disk System came along and stole its thunder.

This will definitely be covered in a future episode of Famicom Dojo, but until then enjoy this quick hardware preview, and imagine the gaming possibilities with sequential magnetic tape!

On the eve of the Wii U release, Sean and Phil return to the Target where they waited overnight for the Wii in 2006, only to find it a deserted wasteland. Where are all the campers for the Wii U?

An explanation, unboxing, NintendoLand gameplay, and more after the jump!

KEEP PLAYING – Splatterhouse (Old & New)

Lost Classics: Nintendo Power (Gaming Magazine)

This past month, Nintendo Power announced that it would not be continuing its groundbreaking gaming magazine, Nintendo Power. The magazine, which has been in print for 24 years, will end with its December 2012 issue. For many gamers, myself included, this will be the end of an era. Although I had stopped reading it long ago , I remember it as one of the best gaming magazines ever created. I had a subscription since 5th grade and kept reading it all the way through the middle of my sophomore year in high school when I got my Playstation. Every month in between, I remember eagerly waiting beside my mailbox for my book to come through. The extras were awesome as well. When my mother first bought me a subscription, it came with 4 free guides: A book about Game Boy, A book about the then-upcoming SNES, Mario Mania (A game about all things Mario) and the NES Atlas (A guide with the maps of all the levels in games such as Ninja Gaiden and Mega Man). Even today, it remains the gold standard in printed gaming journalism, even if it’s obviously biased towards Nintendo.
