    But that's just a theory... ...A GAME THEORY! Seriously, did you get half of these from YouTube?

    Did you click "source" in any of the slides?

    For the Gary's Pokemon thing: Isn't the SS Anne the famous ship in which Pokemon trainers go on a pleasure cruise while holding a Pokemon trading convention? Who's to say his Pokemon died, you don't think he might have lost it in a bet on the ship instead? I mean, dude's got quite an ego on him, I expect he'd make asinine bets like that.. He's never make that bet with you, he's your rival, he wouldn't want to see you take his Pokemon from him. Pride is a heck of a drug. The Shy Guy thing doesn't mention/explain that Shy Guy's first appear in Mario 2, in which the whole game was a dream. Furthermore, the game wasn't even supposed to be a Mario game to begin with. Shy Guy's just became sort of popular given their look and made it into other Mario games, still doesn't explain how Mario was dreaming of them before they really made it to the Mushroom Kingdom, at all -or why they seem to LOVE the desert. It's doubtful, if you look at them in games like, oh say, Paper Mario Sticker Star, that these guys started in such a horrific way. Even for being shy, they're a pretty happy guys. Hate to go here with this, but you're blind if you think the flags in Mario mean any of that. The flagpole flag is a skull, not a piece sign. As for the Russian thing.. What? Sources and other videos saying Mario himself is a communist as clickbait aside, you do realize the Russian flag is white, blue and red, right? And that before that the communist flag was red and yellow. Meanwhile, Japan's flag is actually white with a red circle in the center.. The circle means what you ask? The Sun. What's the Sun? A star. If anything, Mario is hoisting a parody of the Japanese flag, not some weak Russian facsimile. "But if there are no lower parts to go to, the blood circulates normally. " Where is there a source to this? While understand the blacking out is certainly a thing that happens, who's saying that losing your legs causes you to keep circulating blood normally? Wouldn't it still go down and simply pool in your pelvic region? I don't believe biology and physics would simply stop because your legs were gone, the blood would simply have less places to go. As for the whole flying while amputated thing; cybernetic legs in a videogame are one thing, but I'm unsure if you're legally allowed to pilot a vehicle that reaches those speeds without legs -even if legs aren't necessary to pilot them. Just saying, most jets that go that fast are military, and I'm pretty sure they've got regulations about that when it comes to putting people who can get shot down and will need to survive and whatnot behind enemy lines. Not saying I'm right, but we need hard proof for all this before we go on saying it's true. The lack of a scientific/military source to such a big claim is befuddling. Make-A-Wish, or any organization like it for that matter, wouldn't put a child in the ring to get pummeled. Nor would they let a trainer make the kid run behind his car to train him. Fun slideshow or not, there isn't a single reason to buy this one. Also, this game was made before the Tyson-Holyfield biting incident. It'd be good for people who don't know better, to know that before you send people too young to know out into the world thinking Nintendo featured a guy who would do that sort of thing in one of their games, when by now we know they'd never do that.

    "...his outfit becomes red on white--the colors of the Russian flag." Wait, what? Have you seen a Russian flag? Let alone a Soviet Russian flag?

    My friend came up with a theory about Majora's Mask when I noticed the whole "Link is dead conspiracy". Basically it works almost as a time paradox/alternate reality. You have 3 days to stop the Moon from colliding with "Earth" and killing every living thing. When you arrive in the town and make it to the 3rd day, right before the moon hits you are taught "The Song of Time" which let's you go back to Day 1. What if one of your "future selves" (Day 2 Link, Day 3 Link) doesn't survive until the end? You die, are able to make a copy of yourself, and using the "Song of Time" go back without ever knowing that if you stayed you actually would have died??? Yea, it still confuses me but somehow seems logical.

    The theory about Luigi being dead would be good... except he's not. Nintendo addressed the shadow and said it was a lighting glitch.

    Mario is a communist because he wears Japan's color of the hero? "In Japan, red is a traditional color for a heroic figure.[121]" "In Japan this[Red is Heroic] was traditional in old Kabuki plays and the like. It's made to represent the hero bathed in the blood of his enemies." Takes down flags with skulls on them (Why the heck would a tyrant like Bowser, who turns citizens into stone, have peace flags up?) And puts up flags a bit more reminiscent of Japan (The Sun is a star, Japan's flag is a red sun on a white background)? Whoever came up with the theory and everyone who believes it fails at Japanese Research and Critical thinking. Also the name Mario comes from the name of the then Italian-American landlord of the Nintendo of America. Originally he was named Jumpman, and the mustache was added to provide contrast for his nose. People really should do research before coming up with theories that make them sound like idiots.

    The only thing wrong about Metroid Fusion's theory is the Space Pirates. The whole game is about the Federation, the BSL Station and the X Parasites. It does take place above SR33(where Metroid 2 takes place) and have an environment which is a recreation of the planet's surface.

    The one about Luigi broke my heart.

    #4: OR...it's a lighting glitch.

    Come on man give F**king credit to your source: Mario is a Communist is a old and well know video from the game theorist (2 million views) and other site have spoke about it. Here the link : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKW7cZ9WCFk
  • Tony Wilson - July 18, 2014 9:33 a.m.

    Actually, if you check the source in the article, you'll see that it posted before that Game Theory video.

    That Metroid one is way off, like Pooka and andrew-montenigro said. The only involvement I think the Space Pirates had with Fusion is either they tried to get in the BSL ship to sabotage/steal specimens and got infected with the x parasites or the pirates we saw were actual specimens for the Fed's dark experiments. I think the Federation didn't really know about the x or the infection until Samus her self got infected. Why would you send your best warrior down to a planet you know has deadly "The Thing" goo around every corner? Why would you risk killing her and having twin that has no reason to work for sprout out of her corpse? I got a better Metroid theory that helps me deal with my dislike of the latest installment: Other M was a hyperspace nightmare Samus had right after the events of Fusion. Her mind, reminded of a long lost comrade, mixed what she had just been through with her past and added crazy, illogical things as dreams tend to do. It explains why Fusion and Other M have similar settings, (near) deserted biological research stations in space with nasty creatures running amok. It also might explain why there was so much idiot-ball holding going on between every single character and Samus being depicted as short when her canonical height is over 6 feet (She felt guilt about whatever really happened to Adam). Anthony Higgs might sadly be a product of her imagination.

  • shawksta - July 16, 2014 7:31 p.m.

    Good ol Gametheory with that DKC one :P K. Rool's like my favorite childhood villain so i wouldnt mind him getting praise for being the "true" hero XD
  • shawksta - July 16, 2014 7:29 p.m.

    The Metroid one is quite interesting, the Punch Out one is reaching too far, its one of those "The game mechanics is like this because yadda yadda" You want to talk about Shiver Star in Kirby 64, how about posting a pic of it :P
  • Tony Wilson - July 16, 2014 8:08 p.m.

    You're totally right--the picture has been changed :)
  • shawksta - July 16, 2014 9:22 p.m.

    Its good for clarity, glad to help :D
  • g1rldraco7 - July 16, 2014 5:09 p.m.

    Now my mins is warped O.O
  • Pooka - July 16, 2014 3:10 p.m.

    Metroid were the only natural predators to the X parasites*, correction.
