Conan O’Brien and his nerd-in-chief on staff Aaron Blair were lucky enough to get their hands on an early release of the game to try it out and give it one of their famous Clueless Gamer reviews.

Nintendo revealed its new games for the Wii U and 3DS handheld on Tuesday, forgoing the traditional E3 press conference in favor a online-only stream.

Some highlights:

  • The Legend of Zelda is coming to Wii U.

  • After almost a decade of hiatus, Star Fox is coming back with a new title for the Wii U.

  • You can play as anyone you want in the next Super Smash Bros. Nintendo is making Miis, its customizable human avatars, playable characters in the upcoming entry to its fighting game series.

What did you think of Nintendo’s E3 announcements? Let us know in the comments below.

Back in the late 1980′s, the video games market had a rebirth, thanks mostly to Nintendo and their Nintendo Entertainment System. In 1991, Nintendo introduced their new system, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, with better graphics, more computing power, and better games. But it came with the steep 1991 price of $200. That’s around $331.46 today. 

The nightly news gave a ridiculous report on people who were “Ninten-pendent”, and were upset about the high price of the new system. The classic video clip is featured on Guyism

Williams, who was found dead at his home last week aged 63, was a keen fan of video games, even calling his daughter Zelda after the popular Legend of Zelda series.

The change.org petition asks the Japanese company to consider naming a NPC (non-playable character) in the new Zelda game after the actor.

“It was a series he loved, and it’s a small tribute to a great man,” the petition claims.

3. Nintendo has now responded, with Sky News reporting that a spokesman said on Monday: “Nothing has been decided, but we won’t rule out the request.”

The organiser of the petition, Nick Schaedel, has left a couple of messages on change.org as it attracted more and more attention.

He said he was not expecting Nintendo to totally redesign a character or rewrite the storyline but instead was hoping for a subtle but touching change.

“In my mind, all I pictured was a humble villager on a hilltop somewhere, with a few goats and a nice view,” he said. “Not an incarnation of the man, but a tribute to him.”

4. He added:

If Nintendo does do this, it would be an unexpected but wonderful outcome.

If Nintendo takes some other action or even just posts a statement – which they may well have been preparing these last few days anyway – that is also a wonderful outcome.

If Nintendo doesn’t do anything, then this petition simply stands as a reflection of a lesser-known way that Mr Williams touched the lives of many people. That’s fine too.

5. Schaedel has also called on people to donate to the numerous charities Williams supported.

If you pride yourself on being a devoted Nintendo fan, a rare video game has popped up on eBay that may pique your interest.

Nintendo collectors are racing over to eBay to bid on an auction for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) game Nintendo World Championships.

Initial bidding started at $4,999, but, at the time of this writing, the latest bid on the rare game cartridge was $98,601. According to BBC News, one Nintendo expert thinks the cartridge is likely to earn more, despite the item’s poor condition (a ripped label and the words “Mario” written on its casing), as genuine copies of Nintendo World Championships are hard to come by.

“[The writing on the case] is quite unfortunate but happened many decades ago by this point in time,” explained the seller in the auction’s description. “[S]omeone probably wrote on there long ago not having a clue what they actually had.”

Part of what makes the game so rare is the fact that only 116 copies of Nintendo World Championships were ever made. The game was designed for the actual Nintendo World Championships — a competition in 1990 that toured 29 cities in the U.S — but was never offered for sale to the general public. Each of the 90 semi-finalists at the Nintendo World Championships were given one for making it that far in the competition.

The game includes three shortened “mini-game” versions of classic Nintendo games: Super Mario Bros., Tetris and Rad Racer.

Nintendo specially designed the three mini-games for the competition’s format. Each contestant was given just a few minutes to play through all three of the shortened games and earn as many points as possible.

The auction will end on January 25.
