Finally pulled the trigger on this. I debated on the PS Vita due to the cross platform functionality with the PS4 but ultimately I wanted a handheld gaming system and not a handheld gaming accessory, which it seems like the Vita has been relegated to. Overall, thrilled with the purchase and CAN’T wait to get down on A Link Between Worlds.
Happy 125th birthday Nintendo!
Nintendo is a Japanese multinational consumer electronics company headquartered in Kyoto, Japan. Founded on September 23, 1889 by Fusajiro Yamauchi, it originally produced handmade hanafuda playing cards. By 1963, the company had tried several small niche businesses, such as cab services and love hotels.
Abandoning previous ventures in favor of toys in the 1960s, Nintendo then developed into a video game company in the 1970s, ultimately becoming one of the most influential in the industry and Japan’s third most valuable listed company with a market value of over US$85 billion.
The name Nintendo can be roughly translated to English as “leave luck to heaven.” As of March 31, 2014, Nintendo reports lifetime sales of over 670.43 million hardware units and 4.23 billion software units. [Wiki]
Modern Games Get Demakes
Some people, like me, prefer sprites over polygons. Junkboy seems to be in that second camp, as he’s de-made several modern games and replaced the fancy graphics of today with some awesome-looking sprites.
I love these.
DC Hero Profiles: The Series
This is the full DC Hero Profiles series thus far. There are a ton of characters I still want to include… Doctor Fate, Robin, Batgirl, Blue Devil, the Atom, etc. I love the #DCU and have really enjoyed building this series! If you have a character suggestion, I’d love to hear from you.
