Nintendo Awards Show winners here! + Finally its here! (The Scorpions Back!) + Yadda-Yadda & From the Source!

Welcome to the 2015 Nintendo Awards Show... playing off of the upcoming Academy Awards

Nintendo contacted us with winners of their own custom awards... and wanted us to share them with you! It would've been awesome to see some sort of segment from Nintendo during the Academy Awards as they list their winners with the Super Smash Bros. announcer voice... but we have them below for you to check out.

The awards and specifics about each award are below.

 The Princess Peach Award, for best female costume in a movie - Maleficent

The Samus Aran Award, for strongest female character – Olivia Evans - Boyhood
The Smash Award, for best fight scene of the year – Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

The Dragonite Award, for best film featuring a dragon – How To Train Your Dragon 2

The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time Award, for best music scene in a film - Whiplash

The Star Fox Best Barrel Roll in a movie – Guardians of the Galaxy

 Honorary Birdo Award, for best film with the word 'Bird' in its name – Birdman

Parents... parents... need someone to tell you how to raise your kids? If not, why blame game developers when your kids play violent games? Not all are violent after all, but ignorance generalizes a lot more often than some of you care to realize. (I'm sounding like a regular therapist over here, BFG.) :p I talked to a guy recently who mentioned kids play violent video games... and that came through a topic of kids acting out in school and stuff... like some kids weren't acting like brats before video games ever came along. Poor parenting... existed waaaayyyyy before video games, but its another opportunity to blame something else. BFG wraps it up with great points soooo... check out this episode of Nintendo-Demand's Yadda Yadda!

A game that we've looked forward to for quite sometime... was finally revealed and might (might) hit store shelves later this year. What is it? Just Cause 3! Little Bear told me that he never played any of the games before, and if you haven't and you love open world games with lots of action... this is one of those games that is sort of a cross between GTA & Saints Row, but it stands on its own because it's a lot more action oriented (trust me) and might I add that Just Cause 2 has a huge world to roam and go complete ape squat. Check out... Just Cause and (especially) Just Cause 2, because its just that... awesome and is one of those games I feel every fan of action/open world games should check out. It will be released on PC | Steam | PS4 | XB1
