I know you all love them so here’s another Teens React To video. This time the team have given a number of teens the chance to go hands on with the original Mega Man on the Nintendo Entertainment System. Naturally some are a little bewildered and there are plenty of cringe worthy moments, but it wouldn’t be a Teens React To video without them. Enjoy.
Thanks, Conor P
Mike Tyson appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon and was persuaded by the host to attempt to take on his Nintendo self in Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! on the NES. You can watch Mike Tyson try his best to beat himself in the amusing video which is posted above.
YouTube channel TheFineBros is at it again and this time they’re seeing how teens react to the Nintendo Entertainment System. Surprisingly the majority of the teens were unaware it’s a NES, but some knew it was some kind of video game contraption. It’s an entertaining and enlightening video so be sure to give it a watch.
The world record for beating the iconic Super Mario Bros on the NES has been smashed by speed runner, Blubbler. The previous record for the game was 4:58:09, but Blubbler finished in 4:57.69. The record-breaking speed run was achieved by a bullet bill glitch at level 8-2, which allowed Blubbler to skip the walk to the castle.
Nintendo has released a new trailer for Super Mario Bros. 3. The NES classic, which originally launched over 20 years ago, is now available as a Virtual Console title on both Wii U and NIntendo. 3DS. The game features more than 70 courses and stars Mario and Luigi as they venture into seven worlds to defeat Bowser and the Koopalings. Super Mario Bros. 3 can be purchased from the Nintendo eShop for $4.99.
Nintendo World Championships, an extremely rare NES game, is up for auction on eBay. The game is expected to fetch thousands of dollars, as there were only 116 ever made. The game has already attracted 46 bids and the highest bid at the time of writing is for $15,500.00. Sadly for the collector the sticker on front of the cartridge has been ripped off and the words Mario have been scrawled on the front. Still, despite it’s condition it’s still a highly sought after item. The Nintendo World Championships cartridge still has one day left for bids, so it will be interesting to see how high it goes.
The renowned box art illustrator, who was most famous for his designs in the NES era, Greg Martin has sadly passed away. Last week, a post on the Nintendo Age forums confirmed his death, and shared a wonderful homage to his huge catalogue of work.
A former Hanna-Barbera animator, Martin first launched his career when designing for the likes of series such as The Flintstones and The Jetsons. But it was his work on video game box art that will be the most memorable to gamers and fans today.
The late illustrator created artwork for Sonic the Hedgehog 2, the Adventure Island series, DuckTales 2, and both The Flintstones and The Jetsons adventures on the Nintendo Game Boy. Martin regularly produced 24-30 inch airbrushed paintings, taking a week, or less, to complete. You can see all his artwork in full, here. Which box artwork do you have fond memories of?
