Archive for December, 2002
January is the month that Nintendo packages a little something extra into their magazine, as sort of a ‘Thank you’ to it’s subscribers. This year, they packaged a CD in with it.
The CD is a soundtrack of Super Smash Bros. Melee performed by an orchestra. The track listing is as follows:
- Planet Corneria
- Jungle Garden
- Great Bay Shrine
- Dr. Mario
- Original Medley
- Fountain of Dreams
This map is a recreation of Hyrule Castle from the beginning of The Legend of Zelda for the Super Nintendo. The layout is almost identical to the Super Nintendo version, except that instead of rupees and treasure chests, there are Rocket Launchers and Link Guns. The download is here.

Over at Snoot.org they are having a competition to determine the wussiest classic video game character. You can cast your vote by going to the page and clicking on who would win the match at the top of the screen. As of writing this, my boy Little Mac is holding steady at the 31st wussiest character, less wussy than the Eggplant Wizard and the L-piece from Tetris.
TSR’s NES Archive is perhaps the most complete site of NES related information. If you can’t find what you want to know on this page, it’s probably not worth knowing. It’s no longer updated, but there’s almost nothing else to update about.
The strips are usually about video games, sometimes movies, and sometimes just silly stuff. Since modding seems to be the theme of things to do these days, I thought I’d mod out the comic strips. I’ve only done a few right now, but there will be more in the near future.
Note I am hosting the first three of the ‘mods’ here, here, and here. -basscomm
Harvest Moon is a game about life. You inherit a farm, plant some crops, try to woo a wife, race your horse, milk the cows, shear the sheep, and go to the town festivals.
Wow, that sounds boring.
Luckily, it’s a lot more fun than that. This site has a lot of information on the games in the series.
