Archives For Nintendo

Maybe I am just one of the lucky ones because all of my old consoles and controllers are still in working order (except on one of my Nintendo 64s, the reset button is stuck down although the console still works fine).  Well, for those that are unlucky enough to have something like a controller die, at least they can be recycled into a desk organizer!

Etsy seller GreenCub is selling one such “upcycled” Nintendo 64 controller as a desk organizer and USB extension for just $15.99.  Its nice to see the old N64 controller getting a new life rather than just sitting in a landfill like I am sure many are (the joysticks weren’t exactly built to last).

If there is one thing that will fill up your heart meter, it is cupcakes!  Especially Legend of Zelda themed 8-bit heart cupcakes!

I’m not sure who made these delicious looking cupcakes with 8-bit hearts on top but they look delicious!  This would be the perfect thing to snack on while having a marathon session of running around Hyrule as Link.  Unfortunately, they won’t do anything for filling up Link’s heart meter.

The only question I have is why nobody ever brings me any cupcakes like this?  I like cupcakes too you know!

As somebody who has locked himself out of his car on a couple of occasions, I can definitely say it is dangerous to go out alone and not have your keys with you!  Well, if you need a reminder that it is dangerous to venture out without your keys, then this Legend of Zelda inspired key holder would be perfect for you!

Etsy seller GeekyandChic is selling this piece of retro gaming awesomeness that will make any Legend of Zelda fan smile as they head out the door.  If you are a fan of the classic Legend of Zelda for the NES and need somewhere to hang your keys, you can order this Legend of Zelda key hanger for just $15.00.

When it comes to sunglasses, I am very picky about what goes on my face.  I refuse to wear cheap sunglasses and in fact, I refuse to wear anything that isn’t made by Oakley.  I prefer to stick with a quality product that I know is going to protect my already sensitive eyes than take a chance with some other brand.

Well, I have to admit that I am a little envious when I see these glasses because Oakley doesn’t make amazing Super Mario Bros sunglasses like these!

Etsy seller ketchupize is selling these hand-painted Super Mario Bros sunglasses for $41.61.  That seems like a pretty reasonable price for sunglasses that look these good but considering I am used to paying closer to $300 for my sunglasses, anything cheaper seems like a bargain.

Comic-Con in San Diego may be over for this year, but the awesome cosplay pictures from the event are still flooding the internet and while there are more that are worth posting than I could ever have time to post, this one caught my eye and I figured I needed to post it.

Sadly, I don’t know who these two really cute girls are, but they pull off a pretty good Mario and Luigi!  I don’t recall the famous plumbers wearing what appears to be some kind of train conductor hats but in this case, I think they work.  Great job ladies!

I grew up playing Legend of Zelda on the NES and it was one of the things that made childhood so great.  I’m glad to see that parents are still letting their kids enjoy the fantastic Legend of Zelda franchise.

I don’t know who these really cute kids are that are sporting this awesome Link and Princess Zelda cosplay, but Tyson L. submitted this picture to the official Legend of Zelda Facebook page and it ended up being named the fan of the week photo for last week.  I’m not sure if these are Tyson’s kids (I would assume they are), but this is parenting done right!  Its never too soon to introduce your kids to quality cosplay or the Legend of Zelda!
