Thanks for the memories by NatSilva Thanks for the memories by NatSilva
:party: HAPPY 8TH ANNIVERSARY NINTENDO CULT! :party:



I could write a book about the existence of this once candy cane draped Nintendo web site, so sweet...so much fun and so many friggen memories that will stay with me until iam no longer able to look at a screen.....i just hope heaven has good wifi :)

Anyways, to start off.. and explain... a bit cos some of you may not know.. Nintendo Cult was founded by my friend Didz, at first back then the only way kids could have fun and have news to gaming was in fact Magazines.

Here in Australia, there where a few cool mags from where we could get our daily Ninfo from, the net back then sucked major gooma balls, so yea Didz made this web site to host a fan clu for readers and fans of Nintendo Magazine System (NMS for short( and also a few others around like Nintendo Gamer, and Hyper..

Now, it has been exaclt 8 years today... that Nintendo Cult by Avid Gamers was made by Didz, and for that... i made him a little something :) well i made NC a little something ;) hehe..

I have made very good, close friends there, and actually that was my first cyber home! go figure :XD:

I would like to extend a warm and gracious THANK YOU to Didz for making the NC, also...i know it took him a lot of hours, no thanks to dial up internet... but yknow what? if he didnt make that site.... and i would not have posted my art on the mags....






we would have never met :)


ALL HAIL NINTENDO!

BOW damn it! lol


:star: Drawn by hand, coloured with Crayola pencils and Crayola washable markers.

I wish i could aay more... but im kind of jaw dropped and yea.. happy im alive to have made such good friends :heart:

Enjoy! :)

Hey, look it's a Goomb- That hurt worse than when I got hit in the head with a field hockey ball. I suppose that's so.

Me: I was just kidding.

I guess I have to thank the Nintendo Cult, because seeing your images in Nintendo Gamer all those years ago was when I first got to know your Nintendo art.

Yea :) it was a great site! I will really miss sending art work in to mags (just kinda felt like fun yknow?) but who knows.. ;)

I remember those days... back then the only internet I had was at my school and I had to risk getting caught by the teachers and look up anything Nintendo.

I remember looking up the information for the Gamecube online when it was new and all of a sudden this message was typing itself up on the URL saying...

"Tony...this is not school work!!!!"

Back then, that sort of thing scared me a little.

I am so happy to have my own internet at home though, but yeah the internet pretty much sucked balls in Australia back then, it still does now.

I wanna live in Japan and get everything fast with no annoying Government trying to censor my stuff.
