  • Blog Post: Watch The Animated History Of Nintendo's Consoles

    Animators Anthony Veloso and Quentin Dron left out the Virtual Boy, but it doesn't mean their animated history of Nintendo isn't worth checking out. I particularly like the end with all of the Nintendo logos re-imagined using the logos of Nintendo's biggest franchises. [via Reddit ] More
