Although North America identifies Nintendo products from 1995 as reflective of this change, 2001 is the first year of the Neo-Nintendo period to dispense with narrative convention and Nintendo-Formalist style for a sustained period of time. 2006 is the year that concluded what had been, for Nintendo, a stylistically progressive sequence of featured released video game - defined in this article as the Neo-Nintendo period - that broke with the hyperrealist conventions most commonly associated with the video game company's output. It is this critically neglected sequence of video games, comprising the years 2001 (like The Legend Of Zelda: Ocacle Of Ages and The Legend Of Zelda: Oracle Of Seasons), 2002 (like Super Mario Sunshine), 2003 (like Kirby Air Ride), 2004 (like Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door), 2005 (like Mario Kart DS) and 2006 (like The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess), as well as the 3 Nintendo systems, GameBoy Advance (2001), Nintendo GameCube (2001) and Nintendo DS (2004) which provide the focus of this article. By analysing the artistic and narratological composition of these video games from 2001-2006 like Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire and Mario Kart Double Dash,...

.Homo sexual relationships (if you are homophobic please don't read the chapters that warn about same sex Yoshi crushing or dating its mostly just one girl character with a crush on another)

ust looking at him scared me! I looked at the gods and they looked up at him very seriously. I have heard of him and learned about him,but this killed me.I mean-he was a dark blue,had these blue shades and a red collar with spikes on it.And he had sharp claws on both of his hands and feet.But those sharp teeth is what shocked me! But I'm here to keep Yoshi's island safe from this freak-I had to be brave! I looked up and the storm was getting worse.Then I looked down and thousands of Yoshi's were watching.And more came in ready to fight.I saw all kinds of Yoshi's that looked different but were fighting in this war.I then said,"You all help everyone fight, I will take Boshi myself". They agreed and that's when the army ran down the mountain starting the war.And the Yoshi's did the same.And the Yoshi gods jumped down to join the fight.Then Boshi jumped down to me.He looked at me with those red eyes.He then said,"So...... This is the one who will destroy me.Well, you look like some person"! And I said"Well, I wont let you harm any Yoshi as long as I'm here!"He laughed and said"We will see......we will see.....".

The next day when I woke up,I felt amazing!!! Ever since that day,I have felt awesome!!! That must mean this yoshi powers really settle with me! So I got out of bed and did the old,got dressed and went of to school. In the middle of my walk,I could not see with my contacts. And when i took em off,I could see perfectly! I never knew yoshi's had amazing eyesight. So when I got to blackville high,I once again found the bullies, But they ran away . That must mean what i did scared them off, Which is great!!!!
But even knowing this,i still went on with my day. And when school was over,I called my parents and told them again that i'll be home late. And when i was done, I ran to the back of the school to see if Sama was there but she wasn't I looked allover for that portal but it was empty. I then remembered she said i could use mind waves to talk with them. So I thought hard about them and I got Sama. I told her i wanted to train more.And she said she will summon the portal. And when the talk ended,there it was. I looked both ways and jumped in.

The god power. We make up what we call"the yoshi gods".Now,you must wake up and tell your parents this so you can start your training.Now come here!So i walked up to her and see slapped me!And in an instant,i was awake and am back to reality.I got up and raced to my parents who had just waken up.I told them everything and they believed me since ya know,they believe anything i say since the transformation.So they told me to still go to school.And i got ready and was ready to...

on a sunny day in blackville,i was walking to school where everyone is awesome and the tree's were greener than ever and it was not to cold or too hot.I am john,I go to blackville high which i hate because i never was good in school. Not like i was bad as in trashing things and getting detention,but more like not good in the subjects.So as i arrived,there was the bullies.They always bullied me for no reason and took my money and or beat me.As soon they were gone, i went to my classes like always.I go to the main subjects like math and science and workshops like wood shop and cooking.Going though those classes were hell but lunch was my favorite subject..As i went on with pizza and a salad with some sprite.I felt something cold on me.But nothen was there.So i just sat and ate.They let us play games at lunch too so i am lucky there. Im a huge Nintendo fan and i love yoshi and i play yoshi's island all the time on my ds. So i sat and played like always. I still felt that cold air and it felt like it was going into me. Suddenly,i fell unconscious onto the floor and was in a type of coma.I did not know what happened since that because i was in the hospital when i woke up.It was...

Operation Rainfall will also be running a campaign recommending Xenoblade, The Last Story, and Pandora’s Tower to fans and gamers everywhere who enjoy their time with Skyward Sword.

This channel is also known as Mii Contest Channel in some places
A long time ago I wrote this link so that Fanpoppers could share their Mii's via the Mii Parade.

Later, Nintendo introduced the Mii Contest Channel. This channel may be downloaded under your Wii Shop Channel and then under Wii Channels. It is a free channel.

Themed Mii contests regularly run on there, and the results are usually quite fun, as well as the general designing of Miis.

I'd like to try and do some contests again, and as this month celebrates 25 years of Mario (well, since he was called Mario, semantics and all), we'll go with the Mushroom Kingdom theme.

This first contest of 2010, running from 12th October to 25th October and our theme this fortnight is to design this character:



Luigi! It's also been 25 years for him too, let's not forget. Feel free to design him with or without his hat.

Chapter 1
Starting Point

    I find it funny where I can end up sometimes. In second grade, I ended up face to face with the biggest bully, Hugo. He was in fifth grade and practically had a moustache. There was even a rumor that he had two kids already with some girl up at my city’s high school. Hugo beat the crap out of me and why? Because I decided to play The Hero and stand up for my friend.
    Once at the zoo, I tried to save a kid’s balloon and ended up in the monkey pit because I broke through the net. I got tons of poo thrown at my face and a broken wrist from the fall. Then there was that one time I found a deer that actually let me pet it and I got shot in the leg by an arrow from my father’s crossbow.
    I have always ended up in the most bizarre, painful situations, whether by pain it was emotional or physical. However, this story I am about to tell you, reader, puts me in a situation that I never thought I would be in.

In the Pokemon anime, some people disliked May and Dawn because none of them was Misty, while some disliked Dawn because she replaced May and/or Misty.

You will need this channel for the contest
Some of you that have been here for a while will have read my link article. Using this article, you can trade Wii Codes and recieve a few Miis from your fellow Fanpoppers.

However some time ago, Nintendo introduced the Mii Contest Channel (Also known as the Check Mii Out channel in some locations). This channel may be downloaded under your Wii Shop Channel and then under Channels for free.

Themed Mii contests regularly run on there, and the results are usually quite fun, as well as the general designing of Miis.

So, now through the wonders of Fanpop, we are going to have our own contest.


This second contest, running from 9th November to 9th December and our theme this month is to design this man:

One of Nintendo's great silent protagonists, and the Hero Of Time, wielder of the Master Sword.

Brawl is by far the most mixed-quality game I’ve played this year. Many good points, many bad points.

GAMEPLAY
Pretty much the same as Melee (the prequel), with the exception of the Smash Ball; which allows a character to perform an incredibly powerful attack, which often results in a 1-hit-kill. Another new feature is the Assist Trophies. They function exactly the same as pokeballs: a character comes out and either assists or annoys you. Assist Trophies can be anything from Waluigi to Nintendog.
I don’t know quite what it is, but Brawl takes some getting used to if you’re used to playing Melee.

STORY (Sub Space Emissary)
A fantastic achievement by Nintendo, they somehow managed to tell a whole story without using a single word (apart from introducing each character by name). The only problem I have with the SSE is that it can get kind of repetitive, and the maze near the end of SSE was the Water Temple of Brawl: [i]“where do I go? So many different directions, I defeated a boss, what did that achieve? Nothing I can see, I’m completely lost, <pauses game> I have a map???? Well that makes things a bit easier. Right, I’ve...

Ok, this is my first attempt at a review so polite constructive criticism will be welcomed.

CHARACTERS
I'll talk first about the characters (please note, there may be spoilers but most of the characters are so rubbish I don't think it matters). None of the characters have an item which is exclusive to them which is.... well, disappointing is an understatement. As for the choice of characters, it's full of pathetic clones; it has to be said that Nintendo is hopeless at thinking up of original characters. Here's some of the light-weight characters: Baby Luigi, Baby Mario, Baby Daisy, Baby Peach. I am sick of the freaking babies. Nintendo also seems to lack an understanding of weight, as Rosalina (from Mario Galaxy [yes, they put her in as well]) is classed as a heavy weight character. Luckily, Oh, and yet another excuse-for-a-character is Skeletal Bowser. I did however like the addition of Funky Kong; who, despite looking like a gangster is rather amusing.

Some of you may have noticed that there are quite a few Miis on the Mii Contest Channel which appear to have male genitalia on there forehead; and the initials are: DH. People of all ages go on the Mii Contest Channel, and they will be able to view the obscenity of some of these Miis; I always thought of the Wii community as safe and friendly, but this is immature and if people continue to post Miis similar to this it could ruin Nintendo's reputation as a child friendly console-maker. Can someone please tell me how to report innapropriate Miis?

Don't forget to keep your GC controllers for Virtual Console games
Another IGN list read, and another one that I don't agree with so here are my top 10 GameCube games.

10 - Pokémon Colosseum


The first real Pokémon RPG that wasn't on a handheld came as a bit of a shock. What was even stranger however were the new Shadow Pokémon, Pokémon with corrupted hearts (Heartless anyone?) which along with your new companion you must rescue in order to restore their hearts. This game is slightly railed, but you do get the odd moments where you can do whatever you like. You don't have to earn any badges or anything, all you have to do is catch all 48 of the Shadow Pokémon. Once the Shadow ones are purified and the game completed, they can be transferred back to your GBA games, meaning previously unobtainable legendaries such as Entei are now avaliable.


9 - Beyond Good & Evil


Beyond Good & Evil is freaking wierd. Very freaking wierd. A female protagonist in the form of Jade helps along the very pretty visuals of this game. You are mostly armed with just a camera in this game, which is your way of making money....

Unfortunately this console is on the way out...
After reading IGN's top 25 list, I disagree with the ordering of certain games, and there are games that deserve to be there a lot more than others. So here is my top 10 list.



10 - Harvest Moon: Friends Of Mineral Town


Harvest Moon is, at it's bare roots, a life simulation game. It doesn't just stop there though, like the box art suggests the main point of the game is to take care of your inherited farm. You get all the things you need to help you along, including your own little puppy and eventually cows, sheep and occasionally a horse! Growing your crops quickly becomes second nature and you notice all the subtle hints from your female villagers, and realise that a dating sim game also lies within Harvest Moon and you're able to take your pick of the womenfolk. Of course, the game isn't sexist, there is always a female version of each game wherein you may pick one of the men in the village to settle down and have a child with. Harvest Moon is one of the games, much like Animal Crossing, that can absorb your whole life if you're not careful. You have been warned.

The Mii Plaza where all the Mii's you have made gather
So, no doubt by now you have your very own Nintendo Wii, and no doubt the first thing you did was to make your own Mii for using in Wii Sports or Wii Sports Resort, which came with your console.


Did you know however, that you can transfer the Mii's you have created to other people's consoles? There are many ways of doing this, and I shall tell you how to do all of them.

First of all you need your Wii Friend Code to give out to other people, which is located on the front of your address book, which can be accessed from the Wii Message Board, and then on Compose Message.

If you then give people that Friend Code and register theirs in the address book, then you can start trading Mii's!

How To Trade Mii's using Wii Friend
1. Register the person's Wii Friend Code and make them register yours.

2. Then go onto the Mii Channel.

3. Choose Wii Friend, ensuring that you have both allowed your Wii to connect to the internet so that you are both registered on each other's consoles.

This ain't your momma's Nintendo
People getting mugged. People getting shot. People needing escorts to their cars. People waiting in line for hours upon hours for the local Wal-Mart to open. You'd think that with all this chaos and ridiculous behavior that the apocalypse had finally arrived. That or two video game consoles that gamers have been anticipating for years now have finally hit store shelves.

I've been following all of the craziness and irrational behavior of the past few weeks since Nintendo launched the Wii and Sony launched the Playstation 3 and it has been nothing short of insane. People waiting for days in line for a game system that costs $650 after tax or that they could get in 2 months with no wait. Stories of people getting link for their game consoles. Listings on eBay for several 100% markups over the retail price. And idiotic publicity stunts like link which worked because of the sheer audacity and stupidity of these idiots. Granted I love video games as much as the next guy, okay maybe not as much as...
