The past few days, I have been playing a lot of the new Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds on the 3DS and I am loving every minute of it!  If you have a 3DS and haven’t bought it yet, I highly recommend it!  And if you don’t have a 3DS, this is the perfect excuse to get one.

Well, speaking of Zelda and the 3DS, the reason I am doing this very rare Thursday post is because Nintendo is giving away the Legend of Zelda: Four Swords anniversary edition for FREE on the 3DS’ eShop for the next 4 days.  I thought you guys might be interested in knowing that so you can get your Zelda on this weekend.

This anniversary edition differs from the original in that it has new levels you can unlock based on past Zelda games and it has a new single player mode.

The deal lasts through the end of 2/2/14 (Sunday) so if you don’t have your 3DS sitting next to you right now, you still have a little time to jump on this deal.

I got my copy of this game a long time ago for being one of the first adopters of the 3DS when Nintendo gave away a bunch of free classic games on it to appease existing owners after the dropped the price on it right away.  I can’t say I have spent more than a couple of hours with it but it seemed like a good game.  I plan on going back and playing it through after I finish A Link Between Worlds.

Nearly a year ago, I posted about an amazing series of video done by an awesome bearded guy where he sang acapella versions of several Legend of Zelda songs.  Well, the bearded wizard is back at it again and this time he has tackled some music from Super Mario Bros 3.  Considering Super Mario Bros 3 is my favorite Mario game, I am really loving this this video!  This guy is seriously talented and I can’t even imagine how much time and effort it takes to record something like this.

This bearded musical genius is YouTube user Smooth McGroove and if there is somebody that deserves your YouTube description, it is him!  He does awesome acapalla gaming videos like this all the time with games ranging from Tetris to Final Fantasy and he always does an amazing job.  If his Super Mario Bros 3 Overworld 2 theme performance below doesn’t have you hitting the subscribe button at the end, I don’t know what will!

These days, I am pretty well behaved when I game but in the past, I was the most hated troll in various gaming communities.  If you know where to look, there are still stories floating around the internet of my epic trolling activities that range from tricking people into getting banned from gaming servers to hijacking an internet radio station, pretending to be some guy that was getting on my nerves in an IRC chatroom and playing Hanson’s MMMbop for 24 hours straight (his reaction was priceless when he found out and to say that he was pissed would be an understatement).  Well, even though I don’t do stuff like that anymore, I’m glad to see there are still people carrying on that proud tradition!

One of my biggest privacy concerns about the Xbox One (from now on I will refer to it as the Xbone or Spybox One just to piss Microsoft off) is the fact that its’ Kinect system is always watching and listening to you (I know you can turn it off although last I heard, you still aren’t allowed to unplug it so I don’t trust it).  Well, one clever gamer realized he could use the Spybox One’s always listening technology against other gamers to screw them up in game.

He changed his gamertag to Xbox Sign Out and whenever anybody says his name, the menu is brought up to sign them out of the Xbone.  It is a hilarious troll (frustrating for those trolled I’m sure) and well worth watching in the video below.

On a related note, I might be in love with the girl with the sexy laugh that almost falls for this clever prank.

Even as a kid, I was never really one to play with my food (not counting that one time I got a piece of ham stuck up my nose).  I have always preferred to eat my food rather than play with it but I suppose I prefer to satisfy my hunger than my creative desires.  I also hate letting my food get cold.

Well, luckily there are people out there that do enjoy playing with their food and making cool creations with them because then it gives us all something to enjoy!

Sadly, I have no idea who created this delicious looking Nintendo bento box featuring Yoshi, a Yoshi Egg, Kirby, Pikachu and more thanks to the fact that nobody cares about giving creators the credit for their work on Facebook.

Seriously, START GIVING PEOPLE CREDIT FOR THEIR WORK!!!!  I hate not being able to credit people for their work just because the idiot I found out about it from didn’t bother to share that information.  If you are one of those people, STOP IT!

Anyway, whoever made this awesome looking Nintendo bento box did a fantastic job and I would almost be afraid to eat it because I wouldn’t want it to go away.  For those who want to see more yummy Nintendo bento box action, check out this really cute Mario bento box or this other Mario bento box featuring Bullet Bill that you can make yourself!

I have always been envious of those with artistic skill because when it comes to things like drawing or painting, I suck.  Just how bad do I suck?  I can’t even make a good looking stick figure.  I’m not saying I would like to be the next Bob Ross or anything, but it would be nice if I at least had enough artistic skill or talent to be able to paint my house to look similar to this awesome Mario Bros utility building in the picture below.

Sadly, I have no idea where this awesome Super Mario Bros utility building is, who it belongs to or who painted it but it is still one of the coolest buildings I have ever seen.  I’ve seen some great geeky graffiti painting on buildings before, but I think this is the first time I have ever seen an entire building get painted like this.

Whoever did this has some real talent!  I wonder if they would be available to paint my house because I would love to have a Super Mario Bros house.

Is it just me or does the holiday season also seem like engagement season?  Judging by my Facebook feed, it seems like over the last month or so, many people are taking their relationships to the next level and getting engaged.  Within the last month or so, I would say probably close to 2% of my Facebook friends have got engaged which is crazy!

Well, speaking of getting engaged, it looks like one Legend of Zelda fan went a bit above and beyond with their engagement ring box.

Reddit user Blakplague bought this amazing Legend of Zelda treasure chest engagement ring box from Etsy seller Turbo Toaster Studios.  There is no update to say whether the special person they proposed to said yes, but I think it would be rather hard to say no to something that cool!

This Legend of Zelda treasure chest ring box doesn’t play Zelda music like the last Legend of Zelda treasure chest engagement ring box I posted but with the Hylian Crest, Zelda heart and the “It’s dangerous to go alone, Marry me?” message, it has a great charm all its own.

If I ever find that special someone that I want to get married to, I hope they are also big Legend of Zelda fans so I can do something just like this!  I suppose that is putting the cart in front of the horse though as finding that special someone seems pretty much impossible and I feel more like I am destined to be alone with every passing day.

Congrats to this couple though!
