The Kickstarter for Howard Phillips’ Know-It-All did not reach its goal, nobody reports

Howard Phillips, the former face and bowtie of Nintendo of America, has an idea for an educational game that basically takes traditional flash cards and reworks them into a puzzle game, making them more effective via science. Lots of websites reported on Howard and his game, Know-It-All, back in September when he launched a Kickstarter page for the project. Unfortunately, when the funding period ended a month ago on October 24th the project fell rather short of the $50,000 goal, meaning people will have to remain morons for the foreseeable future. All hope is not lost, however, as Howard has noted on his Facebook page that he’s seeking other avenues to get the project going.

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.

Tenth Anniversary Memories

The day Nintendo released its GameCube console in North America on November 18th, 2001, I did not purchase one. I had heard Nintendo games were for babies, although soon enough I learned how wrong I was; all video games are for babies. Nevertheless, I eventually bought one, colored in the indigo variety. Some people did not opt for the “purple” version because that is a “gay” color, but if you ever attempted to shove the GameCube up your butt, you realized it can’t possibly be used for that.

My Brief OkCupid Affair With a Goldeneye Wii Clanmember

As told by Nussy:

This story sounds mean. It’s about a boy judging a girl because she’s a nerd (like so many of us!) that he met on OkCupid. But that’s the point: Judging people on shallow stuff is human nature, and the magic and absurdity of online dating is how immediately and directly it throws that into relief. One person’s Goldeneye is another person’s fingernail biting, and no profile in the world is deep enough to account for that.

Earlier this month, I came home drunk and made an OKCupid profile. What the hell, I thought. I’m busy, I’m single, and everybody’s doing it. Sure, I’d heard horror stories, but what was the worst that could happen?
