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.

The Dyslexic Laywer Is it too late to write about the waifu wars? I don't really have one but there is a female character I have in mind that I want to talk about.StriderHoang Bayo has high execution barrier and largely unsafe moveset but Witch Time is a huge saving grace. I bet people are double bitter with Corrin being in the game and being pretty reliable in terms of skillset. Definitely a safer and stronger choice than BayoJed Whitaker Streaming some Unravel then perhaps some Firewatch. Don't not come.

Parismio I was playing Third Strike on PS3 with my PS4 controller and I tried using the dpad for the first and noticed that it doesnt take corner directional inputs. Is this normal for ps4 controllers on ps3? Larxinostic I swear, it makes sense in context..... Kinda. Hmmm. Okay, not so much.

MAKE UP YOUR DAMN MINDS PEOPLEShinta God damn, Bernie Sanders is just killing it with this speech. Hitting basically every point. He even used the word "oligarchy." Probably the first time I've ever heard that word uttered on CNN. I think a lot of people in power are shitting their pantsPixie The Fairy In my haste to finally factory reset my tablet, I erased a blog I had worked on. Thankfully, it's fresh in my mind. It's another MGS blog, but it goes the opposite way of my last MGS blog.
