Oh hey! You caught me off guard there. You shouldn't sneak up on me like that! Anyways I guess you are here to find out about me. Or not. Either way I am gonna tell you a bit about myself here.

The name is Brent. It is a pretty sweet name. I found out it actually means "up on a hill" in Ye Olde English. Yeah... not so cool.

Where do I reside? Well in the good ol' US of A. Virginia Beach, Virginia to be exact. Man.. you are pretty nosey aren't you?

Hobbies? Do I have any of those? Well I play videogames of course. Thats a hobby, right? I also like things dealing with films, art, fighting, women, and most deliciously... BEER. Not sure if thats a hobby but its delicious.

So, videogames. That is why we are all here right? Well I am no "fanboy" as I love every system. I am kind of out of the videogame club right now however. You see, I lost my job. My girlfriend and some friends were going to London. I didn't have the money to go so I ended up selling my systems (360, GameCube) and all of my games along with most of my DVD collection. Hey! Don't give me that look! I didn't want to be left out. I still have my PS2 though but only a handful of shitty PS2 games. I have some sweet PS1 games but wouldn't you know it... I lost my Memory Card. But hey... I'll get back to it. I promise!


A strange chemical gas has engulfed Nintendo HQ. Suddenly and unexpectedly, the higher ups rush to their
meeting room. The gas seems to have everyone within the room teeming with excitement as all of them have
an amazing idea at the tip of their tongues. A strange feeling of awesomness has entered their 8-bit souls.

"Let's make a 2D side-scrolling game for WiiWare!!" One man cries out.

"That's what I was just about to say!" A female voice shrieks from behind.

"We could even do it starring our most beloved characters! Like.... Mario... and Link!!"


Is some crazy-ass scene like the above going to have to happen for Nintendo to jump at the possibilities of
making NEW Mario, Zelda, etc. games in the vain of what was done with Megaman? I mean c'mon now. How
awesome would it be to have good old-fashioned sequels of Super Mario Bros. and whatnot in pure
orgasmic, beautiful 2D?

For one I am sure the fans would LOVE the idea and for two I am positive money will be made. Or maybe I
myself have been hit by the crazy 2D loving swamp gas and am on a lonely road? Anyone else agree that
making new 2D games of our favorites would be amazing? Hell, I'd take a remake with some extra goodies.

Make it happen!!
