He wants to be the very best, like no one ever was!

If you've been on the Internet at all in the past week, then you're probably aware that Pokémon is currently making a major comeback.

The Nintendo franchise has been unstoppably popular ever since it debuted in 1995… but with the North American release of Pokémon Go for mobile devices last Wednesday, more people than ever are busy trying to catch 'em all while walking around their neighborhoods!

Just look at John Mayer!

The Your Body is a Wonderland singer is just one of the many celebs who have revealed that they're loving the brand new app!

In fact, the 38-year-old even made the questionable decision to spend REAL LIFE money on some virtual Pokéballs…

We'd still choose you, John!

What unbelievably tragic news.

Pokémon Creative Design Director Eric Medalle was killed in a freak accident on Sunday when a tree was uprooted by a windstorm and landed on his car.

The 42-year-old was driving his toddler-aged daughter around in their SUV when the accident occurred, but fortunately she escaped with only minor injuries.

Eric worked with the Nintendo company since 2003 and was involved in eight different Pokémon projects, including X, Y, Black, White, and SoulSilver — so his presence will surely be missed.

He leaves behind his wife and two daughters, and our thoughts are with the rest of his family and friends at this difficult time.

Stay safe if you happen to be in the Pacific Northwest right now!

We don't now too much about the news other than that it will be similar to Harry Potter World, but that sure sounds good to us.

We really hope that there's an interactive Pokémon ride — How cool would that be!?

Wii Can Do It! Nintendo Celebrates Women's History Month With Rosie The Riveter Video Game Posters!

Filed under: Tech TalkEducational

Girl power meets Nintendo Power!

The video game company is celebrating Women's History Month by posing several of its classic characters as Rosie the Riveter!

For you kids out there, Rosie the Riveter may sound like someone you could choose to play in Mario Kart, but she's actually the character portrayed in the classic "We Can Do It!" posters!

The female empowerment icon was created during WWII as women took on many jobs traditionally worked by men while they were away at war.

Sure, those jobs didn't include hunting down Metroids or exploding on cue, but what the heck! Anything that sheds more light on equality — especially for the Wii demographic!

Nice job, Nintendo! See the rest of the ladies (above)!

Did Nintendo Just Come Out AGAINST Same-Sex Marriage?! Find Out What Game Developers Did To Piss Off LGBT Advocates HERE!

nintendo tomodachi life game developers reject fan pleas for same sex marriage option

Have you heard of Tomodachi Life?

It's a Sim Life-esque Nintendo game with an inexplicable Shaquille O'Neal fetish, and it might be sending out a super shi** message to society!

See, players of the game are encouraged to create characters who engage in all sorts of real life endeavors, including intra-personal relationships and even marriage.

Unfortunately, marriage in Tomodachi Life, as it is in 33 states in this union, can only occur between a man and a woman.

Fans of the game have amazing hearts, though. They recently started a "#Miiequality” campaign and petitioned developers to create an update which would allow for same-sex unions, but the game makers sadly aren't having it. They're rejecting the notion on the bogus grounds that

texas fight zelda replica sword hospitalized gif

File this one under #WhenCosplayGoesWrong!

Two dudes from Texas were hospitalized over the weekend after fighting over the affections of a lady. That in itself isn't remarkable — love has been a catalyst for violence since cavemen were whacking each other with wooly mammoth bones!

The strangeness of this particular story lies in how the fight went down!

After video-game enthusiast Eugene Thompson and his girlfriend with whom he shared an apartment got into a heated argument, she called her estranged husband and he stormed on over!

She let him into their apartment, and that's when the situation really got wacky!

An altercation ensued so Eugene did what any Nintendo fan might do, he whipped out his replica master sword from The Legend of Zelda and defended himself!

Uhh, go ahead read that last sentence again. We'll wait.

HE UNSHEATHED A REPLICA VIDEO GAME SWORD!!! What in the 8-bit f**k!?
