Hi IHC, a friend of mine is streaming a one-sitting playthrough of Ocarina Of Time on N64 for Child’s Play charity. I’ll be guest commentating at some point during the day and would love it if you could spare any cash. The link for the stream is http://www.twitch.tv/gurn94 and the link for donations is https://donate.childsplaycharity.org/d5821d94b28350ffaa38bba554b25973

The once mighty Nintendo, is for lack of a better term, is kinda circling the drain. Sales of the Wii U have been awful and every day, a kid picks an iOS or Android device over a Nintendo 2DS or 3DS. They’ve got to do something, and fast. So in a meeting with investors earlier this week, Nintendo laid out a bunch of new ideas, the two big ones being a new flex pricing structure, where the more games you buy, the bigger discounts you receive on future Nintendo games, and secondly (finally!), an openness to the possibility of allowing Nintendo characters in games for mobile devices.
No one at Nintendo is saying that there’s ever going to be a Legend of Zelda movie, certainly not after the shitball that was the Super Mario Bros movie, But if for some reason, they did greenlight a Zelda movie, Nintendo’s Eiji Aonuma has a weird, very Nintendo-like gimmicky vision of what it would look like.
