World of Nintendo

Another bumper crop of damn fine gaming crafts and goings-on, brought to you by the power of the entire planet’s obsession with Nintendo. Of course, not everybody can come up with the kind of quality we’ve compiled on the next few pages, but if you’ve got something as good as our celebrity Samus cosplay or, erm, that vibrating mushroom pillow thing, let us know!

1) DS camera

Non-Japanese gamers will be waiting until next summer to get their hands on the DSi and its 0.3 megapixel camera, so how about something that’s available right now and is altogether higher tech? This homebrew gadget is for controlling an expensive digital SLR with a DS, so you can take HDR images without having to lug a laptop around with you. Or so we’re told. 

2) Brilliant Wario ad

The game might not have been everything we’d hoped it would be but this promotional website is great. Waaah! What have they done to YouTube?

3) Ex-Vice President-hopeful Samus

America is the place where a kid without a cent to their name can grow up to be president. But only if he’s fairly attractive, which is probably why John McCain recruited a hot ‘hockey mom’ to divert the cameras from his lumpen face. And here she is dressed as assorted game characters!

4) Top cosplay

In case you were wondering how they got Sarah Palin into that Samus costume, here’s where you’ll find the original version. She’s a cosplayer called Jenni and her website is stashed with brilliant photos of her dressed as Nintendo characters and Japanese schoolgirls. Bookmarked!

5) Pumpkin Bob-omb

Yes, it’s a Halloween Bob-omb pumpkin, all painted black, with a metal detonator rammed in its skull and a lit fuse. You could be shot dead by police snipers for bringing that within 50 miles of an airport. Trick or treat?

    That hockey fight was O.K. If those players were Canadian they would've beaten each others ass. Especially if they were older. If you ever watch a hockey fight watch one before the new rules, before they had to wear helmets. Now those boys know how to fight! I'm Canadian believe me I know anyway nice article. -pc

    I remember seeing the Samus cosplayer featured in an issue of Nintendo Power months ago. It's a very cool looking costume. The bloody wound on her side was an awesome detail.
