Whatever, they're still Pineapples to me! I don't want to believe those are generic-a** intercoms.

When I was hooked on Captain N back in the day I always thought Mother Brain from Metroid(NES) was supposed to look like this.

Later on, to my dissapointment I found out she really looked like this...

I disagree, NES games are much more advanced looking than Captain N.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

lol yes, with their highly detailed 8-bit pixel work.
I loved Mother brains look in captain N, along with her massive lips and grotesque tranny voice haha.
While mother brain in metroid is just a lifeless looking generic brain, which is cool i guess considering metroid was never supposed to be light hearted, goofy and cartoony to begin with. I actually loved the funky designs of the nintendo characters in Captain N EXCEPT simon belmont, they royally screwed him over. Captain N definitly was one of the most beautiful looking cartoons out there, fantastic art work all around regardless if the characters looked different than their videogame counter parts. I loved their quirky designs, plus it was just so surreal seeing your favorite videogame characters during the NES era spring to life in Cartoon form in 'VideoLand' Cartoons like this are a rarity to begin with.

I much prefer their NES counterparts. The Captain N counterparts of Nintendo characters look so stupid but I hadn't seen how Mother brain looked before so at least now I know what the thing at the end of the first Nin10doh was.

I agree I couldnt stand the way Captain N made their characters. I mean come on King Hippo with blue skin???? Did artists even ever play Punch Out?? And than the worst one of all Megaman the only worst drawing of Megaman I have ever seen was on the first Megaman game NA boxart.

Mega man was awesome! How could you not love his troll sounding voice and the fact that he said 'Mega' in every one of his sentences. I totaly love the quirky & 'bizzare' take on the characters. instead of going with the norm, they did something different and i for one love it. Besides, the show's classic regardless of how their take on the video game characters are. Sure King Hippo had Blue skin, but does skin color seriously make him less awesome? I figure they went with blue instead of pink skin to make him look more monstrous. Besides that's such a minor nit pick in comparison to how they butchered Simon Belmont. They nailed the Eggplant wizard, it's easily my favorite rendition of the character all together. stop comparing the characters to how they look in the game and enjoy the crazy ride because it's one hell of a good show.

Eggplant Wizard and Pit were easily my favorite. Thats what annoys me with Megaman, King Hippo and Simon. Its the fact that they did such awesome jobs on Pit and Eggplant Wizard yet the others it was like WTF???? Of course I also did like their rendition of Link and Zelda but of course nothing beats the Link and Zelda of the Super Mario Super Show Zelda cartoon.

You guys are insane and fooled by nostalgia. Captain N is just plain horrible and rushed.

All credability lost from the guy who watches the New My little Pony.
And no, I'm not fooled by nostalgia, i know i great show when i see it. How in the hell was it rushed? Have you even seen it?
It's 1 million times better than the soulless artifical brain dead uncreative flash animation trash that's spewed out nowadays that's incredibly tough to even sit through.

Most Cartoons from the 80's and early 90's(Along with the magical world of retro-disney years beforehand) have that magical, classical & traditionally animated brilliant look about them. Captain N has that going for it as well regardless if the characters look different. They're still drawn wonderfully well.

For me Captain N is such a fantastic Idea. It looks great, it sounds great and it's a total blast to watch. I know I'm not going to convince anybody who hates it, but that's just how i feel. LOve the Super Mario Bros Super Show and Legend of Zelda as well. "Excuseeeeeeeee meeeeeee Princessss!!!!" lol Link has never been cooler haha.

@WaveBoy What's wrong with the new my little pony. I would be happy to discuss your dislikes about the show, but not on this site. Let's move the hatred somewhere where we will not get banned for things we say shall we.

As for things I did not know, I recently found out that gust was originally a normal type move. Also, in R/B/Y, Psychic types had virtually no weaknesses (Dark was not invented at the time and the elements were not as criss-crossed)

I'll admit, i dug the 80's My Little Pony because it also had that classic wonderful look, and animation to it, it was filled with magic(Check out the intro, it's pretty awesome)it's organic animation unlike the New My Little Pony's 'flash animation' which is very simple, computerized and minimal in comparison.. I'm not knocking it because it's "OMGZZZ they're Ponies" I'm all for that(Ponies are awesome, and so are unicorns! ), it's just the look of the show doesn't exactly grab me, decent material aside. That said, it's still probably one of the best Modern cartoons out there and if I were strapped down to a chair and i had to choose a modern cartoon in this day and age, it would be that, SpongeBob(Season 1- 3 preferably) or the new ThunderCats(haven't actually seen it)

But in comparison to something like Captain? C'monnnnn. Different strokes i guess!

The earlier Spongebob seasons were the BEST. Back on topic, I didn't know that about gust being a normal type move in Pokemon. I'm sure there's plenty of little changes in Pokemon that happened after Generation I.

That's exactly why they created the Dark type and adjusted the Ghost type (which was not super effective against Psychic back then), as well as created the Shadow Ball and Megahorn attacks in G/S/C. Back in R/B/Y, the Psychic type was extremely broken, as the only super effective attacks against it were Leech Life (which sucks), Twineedle (only learned by sucky Beedrill), and Pin Missile (only learned by Beedrill and Jolteon with its sucky physical attack power). Also, only other Psychic types resisted Psychic type attacks back then. Finally, if the Psychic type could learn Amnesia (which raised both Special Attack and Special Defense by 2 stages back then), you were doubly screwed.

By the way, Sand Attack, Karate Chop, and Bite were also Normal type attacks in R/B/Y. Here's the full list of how the Pokémon games were different in R/B/Y.
