Here is another video that some of you may (or may not) appreciate. Lol. I found an old VHS tape that I had made way back in 1993, using Mario Paint (SNES) to animate a bunch of Nintendo nonsense. I was always a terrible artist (I was also only 14 years old when this was made!), but it's kind of funny to reflect on :

Haha, wow! My brother and I did the same kind of thing with Mario Paint back then.

That's awesome! Maybe one day when you're digging through some old boxes, you'll find an ancient tape in there too.. :)

I really wish the Wii U had a "Mario Paint U". It would have been the perfect match.. drawing animations on the gamepad..

But the SNES memories are great. I'll always hold them dear ...

Actually... viewtopic.php?p=1012854#p1012854

I mentioned this in response to something SNESdrunk said in his review of Mario Paint. He suggested that I post them online. I actually don't have to dig the tapes out, I already know where they are. They're in a pile of other VHS tapes that I have to digitize. I guess I've just been too lazy. :lol:

I got my hopes up when the uDraw tablet came out for the Wii (not the Wii U, just the regular old Wii). Only a handful of games utilized this input device, all of which look like they're geared toward a younger audience. IIRC, it was originally bundled with a game called uDraw Studio, which is the closest thing to Mario Paint that the Wii got. I was wishing that Nintendo would purchase the uDraw tablet (hey, they've done this kind of thing before) and use it to make a new Mario Paint for the Wii. Obviously, that never happened.

When I got my Wii U, the first digital game that I downloaded was Art Academy Sketchpad. After playing that, it was clear that the Wii U Gamepad was perfect for Mario Paint. But then I read that Takashi Tezuka was interested in making a Mario Paint for the U, but turned his ambition for it into Super Mario Maker. Honestly, I was so stoked to hear about Mario Maker that the axed Mario Paint didn't even bother me. That, and...

You're right.

Anyways, thanks for posting this! Until now, I wasn't aware of anyone else that did this sort of thing with Mario Paint back in the day. I wonder how many other people did...

I'd love to see them one day! I still have a bunch of tapes that need converting too, but I "think" as far as Mario Paint goes, I've uploaded the highlights. If it was any longer it would start being a form of torture lol.

I remember the seeing the UDraw thing in stores and thinking the same, but like you said, it wasn't meant to be. I get flashbacks when I load up Mario Maker, so it makes sense. It has a similar look and feel. Honestly, I would have preferred Mario Paint over Mario Maker, but at least it was something fun and creative. In a way, Mario Maker felt like a way for Nintendo to "kill off" traditional 2D mario games for a while. But that's a whole different topic...

No problem! Thanks for watching it. I hope it brought you some nostalgic joy! It's for people like you that I decided it would be worth sharing/preserving. There are surely other people out there who did similar things with MP, but most of them probably lost the tapes or aren't as crazy as we are to upload them :)

If you search on YouTube, you will find SOME of this stuff, but not a ton. Nintendo Power released a thick Mario Paint book back in the day, which showed how to hook it up to a VCR, etc. But it was an inspiring guide, as it gave interesting animating ideas, and you could "copy" the stamps in the book or try to mimic some of the artwork inside. I remember having a friend sleep over one night, and we spent the entire night trying to make the Statue of Liberty all out of stamps. Ha.

One trick I always loved: the main "thin" drawing tool was still pretty thick. If you created a stamp that was a single "dot" -- you could then use that stamp and drag it around to draw with. This gave you a much thinner paint brush for more detailed drawings. Cheers!

For those who love 90's nostalgia, I recently converted and uploaded this embarrassing childhood Nintendo experience from an old VHS cassette tape :

Or, if you prefer not to torture yourself with that song, you can go back to 1981 when Atari was putting out these "artistic" catalogs :

I don't want to bombard the forum, so I'll only post one or two videos every once and a while, in case any of the topics are of interest to you guys. :)

Pinball video games have evolved quite a bit over the last 40 years; you can watch the genre "grow" in this video if you have 6 minutes to spare. I thought this would be a fun little tribute to compile :

Here is one of the earlier episodes of Gaming Gems, featuring a 3DO title that many people haven't heard of :

And here is a shorter episode, showing off 5 random games that can be considered "puzzlers" :

Take a peek at an old 1994 issue of Game Informer, way back when GameStop was still Funcoland :
