Random Time! - The solar eclipse, seen through a Game Boy Camera

I took a picture of the eclipse with my Gameboy Camera

Well, that actually looks a lot cooler than I imagined it would. I mean, it's also really low-res and a bit of a mess, but I can appreciate it for what it is. A different way to look at something we were all focused on, and a unique way to capture it forever.

Random Time! - Playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with a PS2 controller


Ah, the strange things people think up in their free time. Apparently pretty much everything works, minus the d-pad. Now let's see someone using a dance mat! Thanks to Cmercur for the heads up!

Random Time! - Craigslist seller has 7,500 NES units to sell

Looking to grab 7,500 NES units? Well there's a Craigslist post where you can do just that! I don't know how this person came into so many units, but they're not willing to sell any less than 50 units at a time. You can check out the listing here.

Random Time! - That hacked 3DS theme you like is coming back in style


I don't even know if we've mentioned it on our podcast. I mean, I think we have...but I digress. We're big fans of Twin Peaks here at GoNintendo, and so is our friend Rogersbase. He stumbled upon this awesome Twin Peaks-themed 3DS menu hack over on Reddit, and boy am I jealous. It's the first time I've ever seriously considered using a hacked theme! As far as I'm concerned, it's a damn fine 3DS theme.

Random Time! - Digimon Universe: Appli Monsters anime shares a nod to Fire Emblem Heroes



Digimon Universe: Appli Monsters is all about Digimon in the world of digital apps/games on mobile devices. In a recent episode, you can see a very clear reference to the Fire Emblem universe. Since this is all about mobile apps/games, that reference would have to be tied to Fire Emblem Heroes. Pretty neat to see! Thanks to Gerjet for the heads up!

Random Time! - Former adult actress campaigns to get NBA player's rating changed in NBA 2K18

Mia Khalifa is a former adult actress, currently trying to transition her fame into the worlds of webcam modeling and social media. It's seems shes making some waves on the social media side of things, as she's campaigning for a change to NBA 2K18.

Khalifa is a huge Wizards fan, and she doesn't think Washington Wizards' point guard John Wall should be rated a 90 in 2K18. She's looking to get the rating bumped up to a 93, and tweeter her challenge to a member of the 2K team.


The request above was shot down, but Kahlifa tried yet again to make the change happen. It seems the second offer was turned down as well.

Random Time! - Punch-Out!! spoof pits Mayweather against McGregor

I'm not really someone that follows boxing, but you can bet I'm ordering this PPV. I don't really like either guy, but I'm ready to see who gets taken out. It should be quite entertaining no matter what happens! Hell, I know I'd be willing to get knocked out for a multi-million dollar paycheck.

Random Time! - Pikachu the star of the latest commercials from SoftBank

First up, here's the boring details on what SoftBank is...

SoftBank Group Corp. is a Japanese multinational telecommunications and Internet corporation established on September 3, 1981, and headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. It has operations in broadband, fixed-line telecommunications, e-commerce, Internet, technology services, finance, media and marketing, semiconductor design, and other businesses.

For whatever reason, they felt partnering up with the Pokemon Co. was a good idea to promote themselves. Hell, I'm fine with that, because we get these silly commercials!
