A great game series. The games currenty in it are:
the legend of zelda
adventure of link
a link to the past
link's awakening/ dx
ocarina of time
majora's mask
oracle of ages
the windwaker
a link to the past/four swords
four swords adventures
the minish cap
faces of evil
wand of gamelon
zelda's adventure
(new one coming out for gamecube in '05)

Most of these games take place in the land of Hyrule but they have been set in Termina, Holodrum,
labrynna and Koholint Island. In all but two games, you play as a guy called Link.

The whole story goes:
Three godess created the land, Din, Nayru and Farore. They left behind something called the triforce in a sacred realm. It was split into three peices, the triforce of power from Din, the triforce of wisdom from Nayru and the triforce of courage from Farore. If the one who possesed the "golden power" wasn't equally balanced in courage, wisdom and power, the individual peices would be given to people who strongly had the right qualitys. ie. Link= courage, Zelda= wisdom, Ganon= power.

Anyway, the gods created some races.
Hylians, kinda like normal people except with long ears "so they could hear the gods."
The Gorons, strange things that eat rocks and roll like boulders when they curl up.
Zoras, fish-men sort of that can live on land for a short amount of time.
The kokiri, child people that have guardian faries. They never grow up and it is said that if they leave the forest they will die.
Lastly, the Gerudos. They only ever had one male born among them (however that works) which was ganondorf.
There were other species of monsters like keese and skull kid, but they wern't people-like.

Some time later (unknown amount of time) there was a lot of war. Some armies were using dark magic so the Hylians forged a sword; the master sword, powerful enough to relect this magic as long as there was a hero worthy enough to weild it. Well... there wasn't so they just left it in a stone in the temple of time.

For a time, Hyrule was peaceful under Hylian command. This is where the Ocarina of time (Even though it wasn't the first one made, it was the first one in the story.) happend. Ganondorf of the Gerudos tried to find a way into the sacred realm so he could claim the golden power for his own.
Link was a Kokiri boy, who did not have a fairy of his own. After receiving one called Navi, he went to find the three stones he needed to get the master sword. He retrieved all the stones and pulled out the master sword. It took him sven years into the future. During those years a war happend and Ganondorf had the triforce of power and hd taken over Hyrule. After freeing the sages, he defeated Ganondorf, who transformed into Ganon who he defeated and then Zelda and the other sages locked in the sacred realm.

After, majoras mask took place where Link went to search for Navi (who went missing)
Almost the same story line as Ocarina of time (except a wizard named Agahim gets rid of the king and Link dosn't travel through time, he travels to the Golden land which is now the dark world) happend again in "A link to the past" but was a different Link. It's not really clear what happend first, "A Link to the Past" or "The Windwaker" because they are definatly different Links (because in Windwaker everyone worships the hero of time, Link from Ocarina of time.)
Anyway, after "A Link to the past" that Link (This is confusing) sails to Koholint Island and *spoiler* wakes up to find it was all a dream.

Faces of Evil, Wand of Gamelon and Zelda's Adventure had nothing to do with the other games (Because Nintendo didn't make them, they just licensed Phillips to make some Zelda games for the CDI.)
It's really hard to tell what Link it is in both oracle games and the Minish cap because Capcom put a mix of so many charecters from different games in.

Anyway, after all that stuff is the original Zelda games for the NES. These games most properly took place after all the others because Link ens up getting all peices of the triforce.
In the original "the Legend of Zelda" Ganon captures Zelda, who splits the triforce of wisdom into eight peices. Link finds them all, defeats Ganon and rescues Zelda.
In "Zelda 2 the Adventure of Link" Zelda is cast in a deep sleep by a wizard for notrevealing the location of the triforce of courage. Link, now sixteen had a strange mark on his hand and was told that meant he could use the triforce of courage. He had to go around to six palaces to retrieve thier crystals so he could enter the Valley of death. He defeated his enemy- his own shadow. Hyrule PROBERLY lived happily ever after but we won't know until a continuing story is made.

A great story line, with great gameplay! Conclusion: Zelda rules!!!
The Zelda series is the greatest game series ever!!!

A console (wait, a "graphics machine," I don't wanna offend good consoles) made by that evil company microsoft that thinks the xbox is good because it has great graphics, a dvd player and games that just aren't fun to play.
If you want good games, get a SNES or a megadrive. You might even have fun with a pc.

If you like good graphics more then having fun, the xbox is for you!

Nintendo's system made to compete with the Sony Playstation and SEGA Saturn. The 64 got it's name because it was 64 bit, unlike the PSX and Saturn which were 32 bit.
The 64 was the first console with an analog stick and the first console with a vibrating controller. However being a cartridge based system, it had inferior sound quality. But becuase it was a cartridge based system it was very reliable (Good luck finding a broken one.) Also cartridges have less space on them then CDs, so Nintendo lost alot of 3rd party support. Cartridges are expensive and companies didn't want to pay tons to put a huge game across multiple cartridges.
The 64 had smoother graphics then any other console that generation, though the colour palette had heaps of crappy oranges and such.
The 64's controller was revolutionary, but crap. The analog stick could be worn out quickly (If you want your controller to last stay away from Mario Party.) Also the c buttons were hard to reach.
Some popular 64 games are: Super Smash Bros, Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, F-Zero X, Mario Party, Mario Tennis, Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Perfect Dark, GoldenEye 007, Conker's Bad Fur Day and Lylatwars.
The Nintendo 64 was revolutionary, yet it had a crap controller and little 3rd party support. Overall, it has enough great games to warrant a purchase.

1.An ok company for parts but make shit frames, generally overpriced.
2. Often posers buy them.
1. The haro backtrail x2 is $400-$500 and only has one chromoly tube.

2. People that can't ride buy haros.
Get one of the following instead:
freeagent, redline, mosh, diamondback, fbm, macneil, wethepeople (if you have $1000), hoffman ordk.

Huh! There's no definition for Alex Kidd!!! Well there must be.

Alex Kidd is a series of platformers made by SEGA. Some say Alex Kidd was the unofficial SEGA mascot before sonic.
Alex Kidd is a monkey-boy. His games are Alex Kidd in Miricle world, which was really good, Alex Kidd in shinobi world, which played like shinobi, Alex Kidd the lost stars, Alex Kidd in high-tech world (which was shit) and Alex Kidd in the enchanted castle. There was also "Alex Kidd BMX"
Alex KIdd in the enchanted castle was the only Alex Kidd game for megadrive.

Nintendo dual-screen. Something I can't wait to get. Nintendo's latest portable system is seperate from the gameboy series.

At a first look, the DS' dual screen just seems like a feature. A good feature is one that has something to do with improving gameplay, which the touch screen does. The psp however, is trying to beat nintendo with better graphics and dvd, making the DS the instant winner. Why? Because the DS is focusing on making fun games and revolutionizing games. The PSP is a mobile phone minus the calling people.

Also, the DS is cheaper then PSP and so are the games. The DS consumes less battery power then the PSP.
The DS is an interesting console with fun games.

A side-scroling beat 'em up that was realeased in 89 but the story happens 2 years earlier.
Mike Haggar (from saturday night slam masters) is the mayor of Metro City, the "crime captial of the world." The Mad Gear gang runs the city and they kidnap Haggar's daughter, Jessica. Haggar gets his gym buddies, Guy, the bushin ninja and Cody, the street fighter, to help him rid the city of the mad gear gang for good. They beat up tons of people using punches, kicks, throws, pilledrivers, flying kicks, knives, katanas, lead pipes etc. And they rescue Jessica and Cody knocks the leader out of a window (Shows this at the start of final fight 2, in the Japanese version anyway.)
This game was moved to so many consoles. On SNES, they removed 2 player mode, Guy and a whole level. They also changed Poison and Roxy to Billy and Sid because they thought they were transvestites and because they didn't like the idea of hitting women (Which completly contradicts the first thing.) Damnd and Sodom were changed to Thraser and Katana.
The story of Final Fight 2 is Mad Gear regroups and goes international. They capture Guy's girlfirend (Or wife... or something) Rena and Guy's master's master. Maki, Rena's sister rings up Haggar and asks him to help get them back. He does, with the help of Carlos, someone who is staying at Haggar's place at the time. No Cody or Guy, they were either training, in jail or doing the street fighter alpha stuff. Anyway, the three beat Mad Gear, this time for good.
In final fight 3, Haggar, Guy (By now the events of street fighter Alpha 1, 2 and 3 are over) a cop called Lucia and a street fighter who had his family mudered, Dean, fight the Skull Cross gang who took over after Mad Gear was destroyed. They beat the leader and knock him into some high voltage electricity thing.

There were so many conversions of the original (Final Fight for sega cd, gba etc.) There was also final fight revenge but people still wonder if this has anyhting to do with the story line. There's also a few gaps between the games coz the whole story line consists of street fighter games, saturday night slam masters and a whole lot of other games.
Streets of Rage was a total rip-off of Final Fight but still a good game. Final Fight is the King of beat 'em ups!
