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.

Those N64-era THQ wrestling games have actually held up really well over the years. Take that, nostalgia!

Heading off to Spiel in a bit. A whole lot of games there, just of the cardboard variety. I love me some board games.

Finally finished The Witcher 3. Definitely one of the best games I've played in my 30 years or so of gaming. Now onward to Ground Zeroes/Phantom Pain.

If anyone's playing Marvel Puzzle Quest (any platform) you should join my Alliance, RedRightHand, and help me kick some Galactus butt for their second anniversary event. (Please?)

MGS Online Day 3. I have 3 character up to level 10 now, one in each class. They're all pretty handy, but I do miss the scout's mark speed the most on other classes.

The SW: Battlefront is pretty and has great sound design, but the gameplay is so shallow and has seemingly no depth! If the full game is like this I will be disappointed.

Dear Playboy: Love your video game coverage, but how about you start making some topless unboxing videos? Seeing someone unwrap a copy of Call of Duty is boring. Seeing a topless Playmate unwrap a copy of anything is awesome!

In happier news, Level-5 is already talking Yo-Kai Watch 2's Western release, and better/worse yet, they're considering amiibo support for the series! And hey, if they can't get Jibanyan into Smash, that'd be one way to get the West's attention.

I drank a glass of Ovaltine for the first time in years today. It was nice. Like drinking a glass of my childhood, complete with ignorance, embarrassing angst, tears (so many tears) and night terrors. Ah, the good 'ol days.

[img][/img] This is just depressing. Digital classics on consoles are such a great idea, but it's like not a single company wants to really go through with it.

I recently beat Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow again, but this time I played on Hard mode from scratch. Outside of dying a few times due to me being an idiot, and enemies hitting harder, it was actually easy. Like really easy.

Today I replated bacteria that I made take up a plamid hopefully stitched onto the genes generatlight. Taken from other dead bacteria and put into a non glowing species, to make it glow. Fucking microbiology is the best.

It seems fairy farts are a fragrance, a soap, incense, a vaping liquid and a kind of nail polish. I'm clearly in the wrong line of work and need to eat more chili.

Just tried 'The Last Of Us' on PSNow Trial, only to be told... 'Something went wrong. Try again.' Game-appropriate error message or quickie plot-summary?
