Shameless Contest Post! (And something else)

So anyways, if you want to take a break from Youmacon news, here's what I'm cooking up (By the way, I can't attend, since there are some scheduling issues I needed to work on.)

Do you like Goo? How about a world of it? Don't like to pay? Missed 2D boy's anniversary sale? Am I asking too many questions? Of course you do, did, and yes, there are too many rhetorical questions in this sentence. But anyways, since I did get an extra code of World of Goo, I'm passing on the savings to all of you prospective bloggers.
The contest will go as follows: If you can tell me the answer to a simple gaming question I ask first, then you will receive the code!

Send all answers to

The question is: What was the first Nintendo published Wii game featuring Mario?
See? Simple! Now all you gotta do is post the answer in the comments portion! Good luck everybody!

By the way, I'm working on a hidden gems article, five games you probably haven't played. See you then!

Assassin's Creed: Lineage Part 1

The first installment in the Assassin's Creed: Lineage film series just came out, and is fairly exciting.

I remember when I went to the Assassin's Creed II panel at Comic Con they talked about this and how they were going to be using the backgrounds from the game in this. Honestly, then I was thinking "Wow, that kinda sounds stupid and it'll look out of place actually". Turns out I was wrong.

Princess Robot Bubblegum

It was inevitable that mainstream media would eventually take notices of the cliches rampant in a lot of anime. Here's part of the first wave.

Still Not Convinced About Youmacon?

Yeah, yeah, some of you are thinking "SHUT UP ABOUT YOUMACON ALREADY!", but trust me, it's worth babbling on about. You'll also probably never hear a word of it again a few weeks down the road.

If you're still wondering about Youmacon, here's a video put together by the local Detroit news:

Mama-Mia, That's-a Big-a Mario!

This reminds me of when I was younger and tried to make Lego versions of a lot of my favorite game characters... and failed horribly.

Anyways, the Lego Mario above stands at 6 feet tall and weighs roughly 110 pounds.

Some of you out there might be wondering, "Why would someone build that?" Oddly enough, "too much free time" is not the answer in this case. It's for a Dutch Ronald McDonald Foundation and is up for auction.

So, if you've got a few grand lying around and have always wanted a giant Mario, then bid quickly!
