Top Ten Mario Locations

Mario, pretty much everyone knows him; his games span nearly 35 years after all. During all that time, he’s been on plenty of adventures in some pretty weird and wonderful locales. Today, we bring you the first of our Top Ten series. I’ll be going through some of my favourite locations found in Mario games, in no particular order of course.

Check out our globetrotting list after the break!

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!

NintyBeats – November 2019

The music of Nintendo games make them truly remarkable and memorable. To show our love of the music, we aim to share a selection of tracks from various Nintendo titles, new and old.

Welcome to another NintyBeats feature! To kick things off, I wanted to start from the beginning, and share music from some of the first Nintendo released games I ever played.

Metroid 30th Anniversary – A Retrospect

30 years ago today, Samus Aran set off on her first adventure on the NES, where she explores the depths of Zebes to stop the Space Pirates from exploiting Metroid lifeforms for their own devious agenda. Since then, she has been an influential game character due to the representation of her gender. She is independent, strong, and a badass bounty hunter who has even wiped out entire species and destroyed planets!

To celebrate 30 years of the series, I produced this little retrospect video which showcases some of her best moments over three decade run of the series. Let’s hope it doesn’t end there and there are many more years to come. Enjoy!

Shout out your favourite Metroid moments in the comments below! (Please make comments via the article thread on the forum as we are experiencing some technical difficulties regarding commenting)

Let’s Play Pokémon Red With Your Host… A Fish?!?!

The internet, a host to many weird and, sometimes, wonderful things. There’s keyboard playing cats, birds who hide in people’s cleavage, fainting goats and oh so much more. But I think I have just stumbled upon something that pretty much tops everything else… a Let’s Play stream hosted by a fish! Yes, that’s right, a fish, the aquatic animal which has fins, gills and swims through water.

Watch live video from FishPlaysPokemon on www.twitch.tv

The idea, though weird, is actually conducted in a very clever way. It looks like the brains behind the project has aimed motion markers at certain points of the tank, so when the fish swims over the marker the button which it represents will be pressed.

What do you think of this project? What do you think is next? Maybe bumble-bee playing The Legend of Zelda Majora’s Mask?
