    Dear Readers: Appreciation

    You know what I have come to realize this month? That far, far too many of you don't *really* care about GameCola. We grace your e-mail inbox with our free-of-charge newsletter once every month (well, almost every month), and you do nothing for us in return, not even so much as give us a lousy top 10 list. What the heck is with that, any? We might not even have a list this month if it weren't for the fortunate foresight of video game guru Terrance Atkins. Honestly, sometimes I think you just subscribe to GameCola because it makes you look cool, not because you actually give a h00t about us. Which is understandable, because everyone who's anyone subscribes to GameCola, but the very least you could do is show us some gratitude for giving you such elite status! Heck, at this point, I'd be happy to receive something so simple as some fan art, or even something so off-topic as a list of your 10 least favorite games. That's all I want, just some appreciation. If you'd be so kind. Danke.

  • … of the Month: The 11-Minute Mario 3 Completion Video

    Now, in case any of you haven't heard the news about this pseudo-miraculous video, it is basically of a person playing through the game of Super Mario Bros 3. in 11 minutes. The conspiracy comes in with whether or not he did this legitimately, or whether he/she cheated in some way/shape/form. One theory is that the person who did it used an emulator, playing the game in a slowed down mode, and then sped it up in the movie to make it seem like his feat had been performed at regular speed. This stems from the fact that some people have seen "jumping" and flashing and whatnot during the video, hinting at such editing.

  • … of the Month: Kingdom Hearts

    Kingdom Hearts is a collaboration between Square and Disney, and it lives up to the names of both companies. It has the great gameplay, characters, and storyline of a Final Fantasy game combined with the heart-warming stories and loveable characters from your favorite Disney movies. While you play you will run into familiar characters from Disney and Squaresoft, such as Mickey, Donald, Goofy, Aladdin, Hercules, Tarzan, Ariel, Peter Pan, Squall, Cloud, Yuffie, etc. These characters and others will team up with the hero of this story, Sora, to fight a seemingly endless battle against the shadowy, evil creatures known as the Heartless. The gameplay is easy to pick up, and even if you rarely play video games you will quickly be able to master it. If you are a Disney fan, a Squaresoft fan, or even if you aren't into either of them, go out and pick up Kingdom Hearts. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you may even soil yourself from sheer joy.
