Video Game Chat / “Who are you?”
« on: October 13, 2003, 09:02:49 PM »

“Who are you?” is a question that Nintendo of America is asking video game players of all ages in a new multimedia campaign this fall.

The campaign showcases the ability of Nintendo games to let players explore a wide range of emotions and personalities through Nintendo’s stable of the most popular and diverse video game characters in the world. The “who are you?” idea is introduced through cinema advertisements, print ads, out-of-home elements that include wall murals and 30-sheet billboards in major cities, transit ads, mall banners and dioramas, in-store merchandising and other elements. An online component features interactive ads and a “who are you?” Web site located at

The campaign features a cinema commercial that is one of the most ambitious commercials ever produced by Nintendo, featuring more than 500 extras and notable talent such as the stunt coordinator for Mortal Kombat: Annihilation and the editor of Amelie. Filmed in Asia, the ad pays homage to Nintendo’s heritage. The 60-second spot will run on nearly 10,000 screens in movie theaters across the United States beginning Oct. 30, prior to movies ranging from The Matrix Revolutions to The Cat in the Hat in order to reach a diverse group of video game players. In addition, 30- and 15-second versions of the commercial will be used on television in October to promote Super Mario Advance 4 : Super Mario Bros. 3, one of the most anticipated new games for Game Boy Advance.

“Nintendo permanently established video games as a key element of popular culture, and ‘who are you?’ embodies the emotional connection players have with their favorite games and characters,” says George Harrison, senior vice president, marketing and corporate communications, Nintendo of America Inc. “This campaign celebrates what makes Nintendo unique – the fact that we offer the widest range of personalities through which you can unleash your other self … your game self.”

“This is not about changing who we are,” says Harrison. “Nintendo has been and always will be about making great video games for all ages. This campaign simply enables us to speak with one unified voice.”

In the campaign’s print ads, Nintendo characters are “taped” onto well-known photographs and images, including the Mona Lisa and the Berlin Wall, among others. The ads illustrate the point that Nintendo games allow players to take on a wide range of imaginative roles and reinforce Nintendo’s position as an innovator that shapes pop culture. Print ads appear in nearly 20 different magazines, including Rolling Stone, Stuff, Spin and ESPN.

The White Mushroom House / Rare Super Nintendo items wanted!
« on: October 09, 2003, 10:03:08 PM »
I am building a SNES stand up arcade machine and am looking for a few rare items for the US Super Nintendo.  If you have any of these or know where I can find them (besides ebay) let me know.

I need:
- An adapter that allows you to hook up more than one SNES cart. into the console at a time (very rare).
- An adapter to play NES games on an SNES (rare).
- Arcade style controllers (easy to find).
- A cheap 3.8 mm (I think) secruity bit (easy to find but not cheap on ebay).
- Plans for the Nintendo Super System, Player's Choice, or other Nintendo or similiar arcade stand up video game system.

I plan to use several SNES/NES/GameBoy games on the system.  Here are a few I may use:
- Tetris + Dr. Mario
- Super Mario Kart
- Mario RPG
- Super Mario Land 2 (GB using Super GameBoy adapter)
- Mario Bros. (the original arcade game on NES w/ NES to SNES adapter if I can find one)
- Mario Paint?

If you have any suggestion let me know.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Video Game Chat / Played Mario & Zelda on Phillips CD-I?
« on: October 04, 2003, 07:38:54 PM »
I have heard that the games on the Phillips CD-I were terrible, but it seems that nearly no one has ever really played them.  If you have please tell us about them in detail.  I am also wondering if Nintendo will include them in there supposed Mario and Zelda collections for the GameCube.

There haven't been any posts here about Animal Crossing in a long time.  Nintendo Power just released the Mario Mural code.

Site Discussion / Mods look here for threads we want deleted.
« on: September 28, 2003, 01:44:53 PM »
I have seen many threads that have posts requesting that they be deleted.  I have even made a few of such requests.

So, I am makeing this thread for people to  let the mods know which threads you would like deleted.  This way we don't have to post in the thread we want deleted to find that we have simply pushed it to the top were others have replied to it causing the request to be buried in the topic we wanted deleted.

I personally want all the "Ban (insert name here)" topics deleted.  If you want a thread deleted post it here.

Video Game Chat / Nintendo handheld game works as videophone

Nintendo handheld game works as videophone

TOKYO (AP) --Nintendo Co.'s Game Boy Advance handheld machine now works as a videophone with an attachment that comes with a digital camera, earphone and microphone.

The 13,000 yen (US$110) Campho Advance from Kyoto-based Digital Act Co., which makes mobile and Internet equipment, slips into the top of the Game Boy Advance just like any video-game cassette.

When connected to an analog telephone outlet, the display shows live video of the person on the other end of the line, who must also own both the Game Boy Advance and the Campho Advance. Your own image will show up in the corner of the display.

Campho Advance, which goes on sale only in Japan in December, requires no Internet service provider. Developers are working on a broadband device but have no plans to sell the product overseas so far, company spokesman Kazuhisa Saito said Friday.

Nintendo has sold more than 10 million Game Boy Advance machines in Japan, and about 34 million worldwide.

Video Game Chat / Nintendo to buy Capcom?
« on: August 24, 2003, 11:40:07 AM »
In the "Character Ideas For Next SSB Game" thread Chupperson Weird said that there are rumors that Nintendo may buy Capcom.

Does anyone have evidence to support such rumors?  What do you think would happen if the rumors are true?

I think it would be a great move for Nintendo.  I really enjoy the NES MegaMan games, but not the new ones as much.  Nintendo could bring back the NES games in Animal Crossing or in an advance series like Super Mario Advance.  They could add MegaMan to games like SSB.  They may also make new games that would be easier (not sure if that would be better).  Besides, Nintendo and Capcom have worked well together in the past.  The GameBoy Zelda series is a good example.

General Chat / Star Wars Kid
« on: August 21, 2003, 03:06:51 PM »
The Star Wars Kid is basically a 15 year old nerd from Canada who became famous last April, 2003 when he got caught pretending to be a Jedi on video at his school. His classmates, to be cruel, put his video on the Internet and humiliated him. Soon, Star Wars fans began editing the video to make the Star Wars Kid look cool (some of it is indeed mean).

Now, there's even a big rumor Lucasfilms wants this kid to make a cameo in Episode 3 !!!

Apparantly, over a million people have downloaded this video. I think everyone should see this.

Not only is it funny, but I think it's great when a fan who got humiliated coulc end up being in his favorite movie.

Read more about it here:

Here's the Ultra Cool Star Wars kid in Action: (1.5 MB)

Here's the Original Video: (3 MB)

Here's the link about the rumor of him appearing in Star Wars Ep. III:

Video Game Chat / GBC, GBA, or SNES Developers Kit and DarkBASIC
« on: August 14, 2003, 11:01:22 PM »
Does anyone have or know where I can get software developers' kits for gbc, gba, or snes?

I currently use DarkBASIC to make games for PCs and hopefully the Phantom.

If anyone here knows about the above kits or uses DarkBASIC (I know Cash Crazed does) please email me at or post here.

I am making a pong / breakout game based on SMB with DarkBASIC.  I have most everything from SMB, but want the images, sprites, backgrounds, sounds, music, etc. based on the SMAS version.  Do you have anything or know were I can find it?  Let me know what you have, post it here, or email it to

Also, if you know how to program in DarkBASIC (CashCrazed does) let me know.  If you want I can also post everything along with images of the game as it is made on my site at

Forum Games / The Pointless Trivia Game
« on: June 14, 2003, 01:25:32 PM »
In this game there will be 3 stages consisting of 10 misc. trivia questions from video games, websites, cartoons, comics, tv shows, etc.  The first person to answer one of my trivia question gets the points for that question.

(I will be out of town for the last week of June so the game may have to be put on hold if I can't get to a computer.)

Stage 1 - Easy - 10 points per question. (100 pts)
Stage 2 - Med. - 20 points per question. (200 pts)
Stage 3 - Hard - 30 points per question. (300 pts)

Bonus points may also be given for extra information regarding a question or topic.  The bonus points will be made up as we go along like in "Whose Line is it Anyway".

The winner gets.. well.. uh... the knowledge of know he/she completed the game with the most points.  So, even though I keep points, the points are essentially pointless.

Stage 1, Question 1:

"Hey, Do you have a canoe I can borrow. Please."  From what website did that quote originally come from?
