Mario’s journey would be so much easier if he had more choices like a certain blue robot we all know and love. Show everyone how much you like choices with this awesome, retro-love-letter tee!
GO HERE TO PURCHASE THE SHIRT from my redbubble account! (Shirt colors tend to look muddier on the site than in person, so fear not!)
We’re all drawing Mario characters. So I drew a sexy Shy Guy.
I drew this stupid thing. Enjoy!
I remember the night of November 18th, 2006 very well. My father was out of town for business so my step mother was kind enough to take me to the Gamestop where I had preordered my Wii. I remember the cold air had me shivering. My stepmom looked to me in the passenger’s seat and said “wow, it’s not that big of a deal.” To which I replied, “It’s cold!” I was a little too embarrassed to admit that part of my shivering was caused by the sheer excitement rising in me. I was about to get a Wii!
The next 6 years would prove to be a roller coaster for Nintendo from many points-of-view. And although it may be a struggling system now, the Wii’s phenomenal hold on the market and influence on gaming as a whole cannot be denied. It’s hard to believe that almost exactly 6 years later, today, a new generation of gaming starts with the Wii U. But I think it’s important to look back and really appreciate what the Wii gave us. I had so many fantastic experiences with the little white box and while I’m ready for change, and although I’m keeping my Wii (for many reasons, but especially because it plays Gamecube games), I can’t help but feel a tiny bit nostalgic for all of the great times I had with it.
That night, when we got home, I popped in Wii Sports first instead of the much-anticipated Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, which I had waited literally years for. The rest is history!
Long Live, Wii! Thanks for all of the wiggles, waggles, and memories.

Can’t believe I forgot to mention this, but I was on a podcast and it was put up today! It’s an Atlanta-based gay gamer podcast called Gayme Bar and at a get together this past Sunday, they got little 10-or-so minute interviews with many of the people who have been on the show or will be on the show. I think I’m the very last one and…I haven’t listened back to my segment just yet but you’re more than welcome to go listen to it so you can hear my deep, sexy voice awkwardly fumble through questions about video games.
I thought a bright pink, tranny-tastic Princess Peach would be a great way to get your attention on the matter. GO LISTEN! (Contains language and an overall tone of sass, don’t listen if you’re not cool with that)
Also, go like Gayme Bar on facebook! That is the best place to keep up with the podcast.
Oh, and I’d like to take this opportunity to say that I will be the featured guest on next week’s podcast, a Zelda extravaganza in celebration of 25 years of excellence and the release of Ocarina of Time 3D. I’ll make more noise when it goes up, as well. <3
Alrighty, take care!
