Nintendo Game Starring Me, John Riggs [VIDEO]

Everyone has hobbies. Some knit or cross-stitch. Others may like to make model planes or make remixes of their favorite songs. Me? I love to play video games. It was a life-long dream of mine to be featured in a Nintendo game and I can happily say that, after so many years of video game playing, I have one I can call my own!

Trying to Beat World One of ‘Super Mario Bros’ with the Controller Upside-Down — Riggs Retro Challenge

I'm a huge retro gamer and have a ton of old Nintendo games. Over 600 to be exact. I was thinking about ridiculous challenges I could do to breath new life into my old video games and decided to start filming these challenges just for fun. My first one was trying to beat the first world of Super Mario Bros playing with an upside-down controller. Let's see what happens.

Play Super Mario’s ‘Star Theme’ on the Piano [VIDEO]

Two of my biggest passions are video games and playing musical instruments, whether I actually know how to play them or not. Combine them both and you have me attempting to play video game music. Instead of showing you boring videos of me trying to play music from Final Fantasy on the piano, where there are tons already available on the Internet, I'd rather show you how to play these songs so you can impress your friends.

To capitalize on it's popularity there was someone selling ocarinas that had the classic Triforce logo on them. These ocarinas seem simplified with less holes to play and even came with a book to play some Zelda tunes with music easy enough for anyone to read.

The first thing I couldn't wait to play was 'Zelda's Lullaby'. Here's my first ocarina recital.

As a Stock Holder in Nintendo, I Just Received a Cash Dividend for Eleven Cents

Let me start by saying I know nothing about stocks and bonds and share holdings and all of that. For my birthday this past April my family bought me stock in Nintendo. It came in this giant, framed, gaudy thing that's better compared to those checks they hand you in the Price is Right.

No matter how it's showcased, it turns out to be legit and I even got paid on it!

Eight Characters I Want in the New Super Smash Bros Game

New Challenger Approaching!

That's the sign that you're about to face a new character in Super Smash Bros.

One of the funnest parts of the Smash Bros. series is seeing what video game characters will join the party and become unlockable. They're usually from Nintendo games, but there have been others, in the past, from other companies like Sonic the Hedgehog, Solid Snake and the recent announcement of Mega Man joining the party. Although the new game's announcement did have two new characters, more are yet to be announced. Here are nine characters in the Nintendo universe I hope join in the fun in the new Super Smash Bros. game for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
