Just what you always wanted. That infamous Mega Man helmet has a certain je ne sais quoi, don’t you think? According to Capcom:

Due to immense popular demand! There have been many attempts at creating a wearable Mega Man helmet over the years, but it’s never been made officially.

Ahhhhhhh Contra. Remember the wit and will you had to have when taking on this game with it’s never ending stream of goons and flying bullets? In the latest “Teens React” video, the new generation takes on the same challenges, and watching them try to get through the first level is hilarious! Couple of lessons learned right off the bat: that dude running at you will kill you when he touches you, those dots flying toward you will kill you when they touch you, that turret that pops out of the wall will kill you when it touches you, and the most important lesson these kids learn, though, is that like life, Contra is really, really hard. See video after the break:

Nintendo2

Have you dreamed of smashing blocks with your head?  Or dodging barrels thrown at you by a giant ape?  Or wanted to suck down enemies and gain their powers?

You are in luck.  Universal Studios and Nintendo are joining forces to put rides based on Nintendo games into Universal’s theme parks.

I’m not much for video games, so I am guessing this could be a good thing.
