Nintendo has been around for a long time; since September 23, 1889, when it was founded as Nintendo Koppai. This company has existed for a much longer period than what is commonly considered their competition. Sony, a fellow Japanese company, was started in 1946, and Mircosoft has only been around since 1975. You could easily look at these much younger companies and applaud them for all they have been able to accomplish is a shorter time, but it is Nintendo’s humbleness that sets them apart from so many other companies and is one of the things that I believe will keep Nintendo around for generations to come. Nintendo has been successful in bringing joy to people’s lives and creating its own unique culture. Nintendo is more than just a company and it has a legacy.

Boo!! Happy Halloween from Wii Are Fanboys. I know its not Halloween just quite yet, but what I usually like to do in the weeks leading up to Halloween is to play lots of Halloween themed video games to get me into a spine-tingling mood.

As I continue down my path of SNES nostalgia I’ve moved from Donkey Kong Country Returns right into NBA Jam. For the sake of full disclosure I should mention that I became disinterested in this game the closer it got to launch. To be frank, I was wrong. Check out the video below by Gamexplain for a taste of what makes this game so great. WARNING: cheat code spoilers.
