A collection of the best Nintendo Short Cuts submissions

6:58 PM on 06.12.2007 // Hamza CTZ Aziz

About a month ago, Nintendo announced the Nintendo Short Cuts Showcase competition. Nintendo wanted their fans to create a 5 minute film based around the Nintendo universe. The top 3 winners will have their films premiered at the New York Rockefeller Center next week during the summer film showcase. Among the prizes of various Nintendo products, the first place winner will receive a Wii, DS, and trip to New York. Oh, and $10,000. 
After scrounging around the Internets for the last few hours, I've come up with a collection of the best entries to the competition. The best of the bunch (and the one I think is going to win the ten grand) is the first video above simply called Punch-Out!! Trailer. The quality and production value of it is quite remarkable.
Do you agree with me that the Punch-Out video is going to win? Or do you think one of the other videos in the bunch will win the top prize?  
The Pitch. A company is trying to combat the ever growing threat of Nintendo by coming up with some unique videogame ideas.
Nintendo News Network. All the big news from around the Nintendo universe. The bit at the end with the winning lottery numbers was hiliarious.  
The Blue-Light Zone: Eye of the Mii-Holder. It's like that episode of the Twighlight Zone. 
Nintendo Love. The chronicle of a man and a Nintendo as they go through life, love, marriage, birth and heartbreak.  
Pretendo. Mario and Link have to save Princess Peach.  Some funny moments. Also, hot chicks.
Wii-Napped! A kid has his Wii stolen and the Elite Beat Agents come to help.  
Jack Thompson goes on a killing spree! Apparantly, it was banned for being too violent.  
Crazy Nintendo fanboy shows off his Nintendo collection. Hey, if you can't come up with a witty movie idea, then showing off your crazy collection works just as fine I suppose.  
Return of the Champ. Sure, the other Punch-Out video is way better, but the music on this is amazing.  
Super Smash Brothers Medley. Making up lyrics to Smash Bros songs? Total win. Not to mention the real life Smash battle that takes place.  
Nintendo Gamebusters. It's like Ghostbusters. IS THAT DESCRIPTIVE ENOUGH?! 
I Am Error. Nintendo invades real life. (Is the Mother Brain theme from Super Metroid just one of the best boss songs ever or what?) Made by Matthew from The Tanooki.

Memo to self: spend your time cleaning before wasting ten or so hours on a cblog you'll end up just scrapping because you're incompetent and incapable of writing on the subject.
Is there an occupation out there for people who want to give up and not worry about shit for a while until they can recompose themselves before going back into society?

That test was pretty raw. Some decisions cut deep, some I didnt care for at all. But im satisified with the end result.

People are having serious anthropological discussions about video games and here I am reminding people that they have one more day to get a dumb card I painted:

While I am glad I only paid $15 for it, I bought J-STARS VS+ for one specific reason: to drink some beer and kick ass as Yusuke and Hiei. And in that regard, it delivers. Beer not included.

We can be so weird sometimes. You can easily move on from some of the stuff you might want to remember forever, but then sometimes you just can't let go of trivial things. What's up with that?

I'm in the mood for some feel-good music. Hit me with your best feel-good VGM, people! [youtube][/youtube]

My "Thankful it's over" post is done. Editing it tonight, posting tomorrow. Will there be more last-minute entries? Will Pixie be merciful to Twilight Princess? Will Zetta add words to his entry? Why is bear driving? Who run Bartertown? Stay Tuned!

Ok you Monday morning motherfuckers, 3 favourite fictional universes you'd like to exist in (The initial iteration of the universe had to be in videogame form) Go.

Just ran into my first 'suicide mole rat' in Fallout 4. I'm beginning to think this may not be a 100% accurate, meticulously researched recreation of life after the apocalypse.

Well I just played Undertale. It's a really unique game, but the difficulty in the beginning is a tad intense. Got clobbered once they started throwing three monsters at me at a time and lost a lot of progress... where's Toriel when I need her?

Just 1200 words left to go on my essays. Do I deserve a day off to play Just Cause 3 once I'm done? Yes.

Elite: Dangerous has some glaring issues, and can occasionally feel kinda bare bones, but I'll be damned if it isn't one of my favorite games in recent memory. Ships are fun to fly, trading is rewarding, and the sound design is absolutely brilliant.
