Were you ever curious about who made Nintendo Life? I doubt it - but If you were, now you have a chance to find out about our founding member courtesy of Andy from Game People. Andy approached me last week and told me all about a new regular interview feature on his site called "Blogging People" where he would randomly pick someone from the blog-o-sphere and ask them all about games, here's some of what happened when I was interrogated:
"Ant: There have been many “highlights” in the past 17 years of gaming. But generally I’m one of those people that really loves the triple A titles, for example, I’d happily wait 3 years for a new Zelda instalment. It’s not just the games that give me great memories though, its all the little details. I remember taking a day off from school when Banjo-Kazooie first came out, or when F-Zero X arrived all the way from Japan. Feeling my whole body shaking as I finally completed Super Mario Land on the Gameboy. I could probably write an entire article on my favourite experiences in games.
Andy: Tell me more about finishing Super Mario Land, I had a Gameboy in the early 90’s but never finished it!
Ant: Ironically the last level in Mario Land is more like space invaders than anything else, your in the Mario Plane ™ and have to a) shoot the boss, whilst b) dodging his splitting fireballs, I remember it taking quite a few attempts before finally beating it!"
I'd just like to say thanks to Andy for listening to me for almost an hour, I don't know how you did it! If your especially bored, please head on over to Game People to read the full interview.
