Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2013

Are you a Legend of Zelda fan (and if you love Nintendo, how can you not be!)? Ever been stuck on a level in a Zelda game and wish you had a video that showed you how to get through it? Ever wanted to see lesser known and streamed Legend of Zelda games such as "Link: The Faces of Evil", "Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon" and "Zelda's Adventure" on the Philips CD-i played in their full glory? Enter the Zelda Dungeon marathon!

The Zelda Dungeon marathon is a five day Legend of Zelda video gameplay fest that was created by Zelda Dungeon site owner Mases Hagopian, and features him and his crew playing every single Legend of Zelda game that has ever existed in their entirety. If you're not familiar with the Zelda Dungeon website, you should really have a look -- it is probably the most comprehensive and helpful Legend of Zelda site on the internet.

The marathon is held annually to benefit the Child's Play charity, which helps provide toys and games for sick children in hospitals around the country. During the marathon, each donation enters you into a drawing for one of many prizes given away during the marathon. Every little bit helps, so if you can spare some cash, this would be a good time to donate to a wonderful cause.

This year's Zelda Dungeon Marathon is being held beginning on Wednesday, August 7, 2013. You can watch the marathon on Zelda Dungeon's Twitch TV page. They have even come up with a neat YouTube promo trailer promoting this year's marathon -- you can view the trailer below.

Happy Viewing!

Pikmin 3 Demos Going on at GameStop Now!

Pikmin 3 GameStop Demo

Nintendo has a lot of cool new games coming out this year, and one of the most anticipated is the latest installment of the Pikmin series -- Pikmin 3. Pikmin 3 is due to be released in the next few weeks (on August 4, 2013), but if you just can't wait until then to dig in and sample the goods, Nintendo is holding an event at select GameStop locations today and tomorrow (July 20-21, 2013 from 1-4 p.m.) where you can play a demo of the game. You can also pre-order a digital version of Pikmin 3 while you're at GameStop and you'll receive it a day early -- on August 3, 2013.

We swung by our local GameStop and not only had the pleasure of seeing Pikmin 3 in all of it's glory, but we also were lucky enough to try out a demo of another great game being released next month -- Mario and Luigi Dream Team for the Nintendo 3DS. There weren't that many people at the GameStop we went to at the time we got there, so we played both demos of the games multiple times all the way through and just couldn't get enough! Our Nintendo rep also gave us some cute Pikmin appliques / patterns, and even a cool Donkey Kong 3DS tote bag wrapped up in a banana that was left over for another event. Totally a great experience!

If you didn't get a chance to make it out to the Pikmin demo today, you still have a chance to make it out to one tomorrow; to find the nearest GameStop to you that is holding the event, you can enter your zip code on GameStop's Pikmin 3 event page. If you plan on picking up a Pikmin 3 strategy guide, now is a good time to pick up one up, as you can get 50% off all Official Strategy Guides at GameStop.com! Don't miss out, offer expires 7/23/2013.

Wii U Pro Controller Half Price at Best Buy Today!

While I was at Best Buy today getting my new Animal Crossing New Leaf Rolling Suitcase DLC today, I went over to look at the accessories for the Wii U and was shocked (and overjoyed!) to find that the
Pro Controller for Nintendo Wii U
was half off today! The regular price for the Wii U Pro Controller is $49.99, but as part of Best Buy's Deal of the Day, the Wii U Pro Controller was only $24.99!

This was only for the white Pro Controller though -- the black one was still the regular price of $49.99. Also, you have to be able to pick the controller up at the store -- it's not available for shipping, although you can purchase it online at the Best Buy website it and pick up it up at your local store. I had been holding out on getting a Pro Controller because I didn't want to fork out $50 bucks, but $25 bucks is totally doable (especially since I paid $20 for the Wii Classic Controller Pro -- which is now only $12 on Amazon!)
. Hurry up and get yours now!
