“In Nintendo games you have fun by having fun.”

A look at visual design languages and how we know how to play most Nintendo games because we’ve already played with the images before. It’s a great look at nostalgia and what that means.

The real reason we’re all still playing Mario - Kill Screen

Content Patch - May 17th, 2013 - Ep. 085 [Nintendo targets Lets Plays] (by TotalHalibut)

If you’re a fan of video game content on Youtube and across the internet, news to you might be that Nintendo has asserted their copyright via ContentID to place and/or claim the ad revenue on videos that includes their IP. TotalBiscuit, a well known youtuber goes into detail about the situation and some of the real-world consequences of the action.

This whole issue has come up due to the tricky nature of copyright with interactive media, something it’s not really had to deal with before. If people filmed a LARP, should the LARP writer get any ad revenue from it? It’s complicated from a legal perspective, but if this is how people, primarily youth, get to see copyright in action, then (as long as they remember) the whole copyright edifice is in trouble. As librarians, how do we inform te public and our constituents about these issues?

I would watch this if I were you. Very well done animation and the music! SUPER MARIO CEREMONY -The 30th Anniversary Medley- (by amanbow)
