Tabletop Review: Super Fantasy Rumble

Most games listed as “2-4 players” tend to be better experiences with four people, in much the same way cars drive better with four wheels. Consider me pleased, then, that a game which allows four players is actually a solid two player game that doesn’t need the additional bodies to make it work well. Super Fantasy Rumble by Passion Project is not a vibrator, as you might expect, but rather a strategy card game played out on a grid style board. In essence, there are two teams containing two leader cards and four warrior cards, each with their own special attacks, defense, and range. The range is perhaps the key differentiating element of the game, and what adds to its unique appeal.

Tabletop Review: Boss Monster

On a site like this one (Nintendorks), chances are me, you, and every other person visiting is a fan of Nintendo. Not just Nintendo, but classic Nintendo and vintage video games in general. In fact, I don’t even own a current generation console, and like Magic Johnson’s dick, I would be afraid of putting a modern video game in my mouth for fear of getting AIDS. However, my heart will forever hold a place for 1980s video games, at least until the dementia destroys so much of my brain that I can only remember the Vietnam War…which I never fought in. Yet, while I welcome companies, big and small, to prey upon my memories of my childhood, I will still cast a discerning eye on any nostalgic molestation.

Centenarian loves Nintendo, mushed food

Kathleen Connell, a 100 year old Scottish woman that loves tea and not dying, said Nintendo has “helped to keep my brain as active as possible in my old age.” Trevor Mogg of the website Digital Trends writes that researchers at the University of California claim “to have found a connection between activities that stimulate the brain and levels of a kind of protein that is believed to cause Alzheimer’s, a disease marked by dementia and memory loss.” For Ms.

Nintendorks’ Legend of Zelda Timeline

It has been making the rounds all over the web. Siliconera posted a timeline of the Legend of Zelda series. The site posted a graphic showing the chronological progression of the Zelda games, based off of an official encyclopedia published in Japan. The author of the article, Ishaan, wondered if their theory made sense.

The answer is no, it doesn’t make sense. Or maybe it does, who knows? In any event, Nintendorks has taken it upon itself to proffer our own version of the Legend of Zelda timeline. See below the jump for the full visual interpretation.
