Nintendo Happy Holidays!

Secret santa in the Nintendo universe certainly keeps things interesting!
By Ken Wong

Sorry for being AWOL for so long! I hate to admit that a lot of my attention has been on Level Up Studios these days… and obviously the month of December is a crazy one for an up-and-coming online video game merchandise retailer!

    Wow… Samus is a dick.

  2. BraveSirJimOfLawl on January 3rd, 2013 3:24 pm

    Yay! Shawn's not dead!

  3. Psycroc on January 3rd, 2013 3:53 pm

    What gift could be better than THE BABY

  4. UndeadLex on January 3rd, 2013 3:54 pm

    So, should we expect a New Year's post sometime after Valentine's Day?

  5. Alpar on January 3rd, 2013 3:55 pm

    Well it'd be the best way to get our attention since probably over half of us won't even have a Valentine.

  6. Alpar on January 3rd, 2013 3:55 pm

    He cheats death by constantly procrastinating on it.

  7. Alpar on January 3rd, 2013 3:57 pm

    The fo-

    …idea. Replace every time Samus mentions DA BABY in Other M with THE FORUMS.

    We forgive you Shawn.

    We understand how much more important profit is to you than your own children.

    (No jk, you making money legitimately is an excuse.)

    "From the look on Mario's face I could tell that he wasn't happy with the gift I had bought for him."

    (For bonus points, imagine it in her "newfound" drawl.)

    I think I read the same book in highschool.

    Still haven't finished reading it, though.

    So ever body still wants to live on planet? Good, good if any body wants to so other wise I will not stop following them, while asking them cease speaking, and accept my legal tender

  20. Vabolo on January 3rd, 2013 5:44 pm

    Boy, I'm sure glad that Link's secret santa wasn't Ganondorf.

  21. Master_Xehanort on January 3rd, 2013 5:48 pm

    I just wonder what he's up to!

  22. Soul Eater 676 on January 3rd, 2013 5:49 pm

    Let's hope the next one to reach 100,

    Is going to be me.

    Btw congrats.

  23. Earl the Lemon on January 3rd, 2013 5:49 pm

    You people celebrate this,it is nothing but a good reputation, plenty of us have that ,THIS IS….

    "Not even a fragment… None of the Forums remained on me. I knew it to be true but still couldn't help looking at my palm for a sign. Never again would I encounter the Forums. Never. The finality of it struck me once again."

    The sad tale of Halolz users after everytime they check for the forums

  30. SpectralSheep on January 3rd, 2013 6:34 pm

    I would say that Samus giving Mario a deadly space monster was in poor taste, but Mario gave Link drugs. That's just not right.

  31. Comire on January 3rd, 2013 6:37 pm
  32. Alpar on January 3rd, 2013 7:02 pm


  33. Alpar on January 3rd, 2013 7:06 pm

    I'm not sure if this is an intentional pun since you forgot the z…

  34. Master_Xehanort on January 3rd, 2013 7:22 pm

    Cell has no need for your money. Bring him the world's strongest fighters, however….

  35. Master_Xehanort on January 3rd, 2013 7:25 pm

    [youtube qmXikqaGjnM rel="nofollow"> youtube]

    This is DEATH-inately a good idea.

  36. MetroidJunkie on January 3rd, 2013 7:35 pm

    Damnit, Link. We agreed to a $20 limit. Giving away the triforce like a show off.

  37. The Pualrus on January 3rd, 2013 8:08 pm

    I'm sorry Soul Eater.
    *twirls moustache*
    I'm afraid I can't let that happen.

  38. Master_Xehanort on January 3rd, 2013 8:09 pm

    Pierce the heavens with your peen!

  39. The Pualrus on January 3rd, 2013 8:13 pm

    And Link gave Samus a truly ancient and unparalleled power.

    He's such a nice gentleman.

  40. pokemon_girl on January 3rd, 2013 8:19 pm

    Well, technically the goddesses created it as well as everything else for free. If anything, its the best gift: Mario's gift is a common drug and Samus's..well…eats your brain. And you can wish for whatever you want, even a pizza dinosaur! [youtube FmiYTX11H3o&feature=player_detailpage rel="nofollow"> youtube]

  41. The Pualrus on January 3rd, 2013 8:23 pm

    Yes, and I imagine Samus managed to acquire a preserved specimen of a dying breed at such the bargain. It's not like the Space Pirates were down at the corner market, advertising "Metroids! Get yer Metroids here. A rare, dangerous, and genetically versatile specimen! Only $19.99!"

    I think we need to assume Mario's simply a cheap little man.

  42. TheShiroyasha on January 3rd, 2013 8:59 pm

    Ha-ha I've decided to finally join the site! I have been around as a shadow for years but since its a new year and all In taking my chances and joining.

    Hm now to post something clever for I can seal the deal

    <img src= ""&gt;

  43. Porecomesis on January 3rd, 2013 10:18 pm

    Well, I don't really have any witty comments to say. However, Alpar, I did get a Christmas present for you.

    <img src=""&gt;
    I hope you enjoy them. Merry late Christmas.

  44. Sonicsmash2 on January 3rd, 2013 11:00 pm

    Not so fast Pualrus!

  45. VyseRogueKing on January 3rd, 2013 11:06 pm

    So you gave an item that can grant any wish to the one person who has single-handedly made a nigh indestructible species extinct, destroying entire planets in the process as well as being raised by Chozo, infected with the x parasite then injected and mutated with a vaccine created through metroid dna, as well as suffering through extreme phazon poisoning which, even though it was reversed before the unspeakable happens, has a habit of causing grotesque body mutation as well as mental deterioration?

    Good job, Link. No, seriously. Nothing could ever go wrong with that. She seems mentally sound enough to handle Absolute Power.

  46. ibbolia on January 3rd, 2013 11:16 pm

    Not on my watch, Sonicsmash2.

  47. Paulrus-Keaton? on January 3rd, 2013 11:26 pm

    Shawn, you and I both know that your workdays consist solely of you stalking my Facebook page for no reason.

  48. Psycroc on January 3rd, 2013 11:40 pm

    Gentlemen, it appears we have reached the nirvana of Halolz comments.

  49. Porecomesis on January 3rd, 2013 11:53 pm

    Could've been worse. He could've given it to Captain Martin Walker.

  50. Alpar on January 4th, 2013 12:15 am

    Oh wow, I'm getting all these nice things from strangers on the internet so much this time around… (no joke)


  51. Alpar on January 4th, 2013 12:22 am

    Sadly she will not reward him with sex.

    Instead she will make the universe ruled under her cruel, everlasting iron fist of dictatorship.

    Or she could pull a Batman moment and wish her parents back. That's good too.

  52. gameboy_nate on January 4th, 2013 12:44 am

    Then again, a one up shroom revives you from the dead.

  53. Sceptilianblade on January 4th, 2013 1:29 am
  54. Sceptilianblade on January 4th, 2013 1:33 am

    This. Is.

  55. Porecomesis on January 4th, 2013 1:50 am

    Hey, 'tis the season of giving. Well, 'twas but let's not be pedantic. I don't care to get anything in return.

  56. MasterLuigi452 on January 4th, 2013 2:25 am

    We understand Shawn.
    Just don't leave us hanging too long.
    Hope you had a wonderful holiday.

  57. MetroidJunkie on January 4th, 2013 3:44 am

    Depends at what point in the series. Prior to Metroid II, they're plentiful as hell and, even afterwards, the Galactic Federation was cloning them. Samus has Metroid DNA in her after Metroid Fusion so she could've even cloned one off of herself.

  58. Master_Xehanort on January 4th, 2013 5:00 am

    *casual reference to Metroid Prime: Hunters*

    Oops! Spoilers!

  59. BTSnoogans on January 4th, 2013 5:02 am

    Oh yeah? Well… I don't mind letting someone else reach 100 first. I'll be nice.

  60. BTSnoogans on January 4th, 2013 5:05 am

    Your peen has breached 100 whats?
    Oh, wait. I got it.
    *nervously clears throat*
    You can disregard that last statement.

    He escaped Trunks closet

  70. BTSnoogans on January 4th, 2013 11:46 am

    I can't be sure of any of that since that video is blocked in my country for copyright shenanigans. I guess I could go grab my TTGL DVDs for reference but they're all the way on the other side of the room and I'm far too tired to go over there.

  71. Oddwan on January 4th, 2013 12:06 pm

    Oh, okay, no biggie…
    But, if you'd want to read it, I'll just leave this here… although it's not quite as effectfull as the video :/

    Ps. search the page(ctrl + f) for GRIT and you'll be at the right place Ds.

  72. BTSnoogans on January 4th, 2013 12:14 pm

    Ah, ok. Because you said grit, I already know what line it is.

  73. Soul Eater 676 on January 4th, 2013 1:18 pm

    I should download this and use it in l4d2 when I'm the tank.

  74. Uzumakiclan43 on January 4th, 2013 1:28 pm

    Hey! Shawn's Back!

    <img src=""&gt;

    And it's not a belated holiday post. It's a post celebrating the Festivus for the rest of us.

  75. TheShiroyasha on January 4th, 2013 1:37 pm

    HI everyone I've decided to join Halolz! I've been a shadow for years now. But as of 2013 I'm joining the party!

  76. sims796 on January 4th, 2013 2:30 pm

    Dangit man! Just you wait, my power of wit shall increase the size of my mediocre e-peen!

    Until then, congrats on making my dream and rubbing it in my face!

  77. HughbertReturns on January 4th, 2013 3:50 pm

    I miss having 90+ peen…..

  78. Skrist on January 4th, 2013 6:08 pm

    That's it, no one can top it. Halolz is over, everyone go home.

    I'm in the same boat. I feel like I've been stuck at 92 forever.

  81. Sceptilianblade on January 4th, 2013 9:46 pm

    You were gone?

  82. PortalMan on January 4th, 2013 10:09 pm

    I'm assuming the Metroid was suppose to be one of those "horribly painful" prank gifts?

  83. Vabolo on January 4th, 2013 11:27 pm

    And all it took was ten minutes with GIMP and google images.

    World's strongest fighters…

  87. Master_Xehanort on January 5th, 2013 12:49 pm

    I said "world's strongest fighters", not "world's biggest liars".

  88. BTSnoogans on January 5th, 2013 4:06 pm

    Well, that's just unfortunate. Have a +1 and I wish you luck in the future.

    Why is Link talking?

    Kill it. Kill it with the Ice Beam-Missile Combo.

    It's the most efficient way of dealing with deadly creatures that suck the life force from you.

  97. Jimmy on January 7th, 2013 5:24 pm

    Shawn is leaving us dry on the "new submissions" part of the site…again…

    My internet has been down for the past few days and I am currently on my laptop at my local library. (I'll get it back up & running in a few days so don't worry folks) I popped on here HOPING that there'd be some cool new post we could all make puns about, but NOPE.avi

    SHAWN, I AM SO MUCH DISAPPOINT IT HURTS. Y U NO DO ANYTHING? Poor Trunks practically owns this site now…

    On the plus side, I've been reading a book. YES. A BOOK. Eragon at the moment. I'm liking it and I just beat the campaign of Black Ops II. I didn't get the "Perfect Ending" but I got the second best one. I can live with that. It was actually a fun game to play too in terms of the storyline and choices you make. Well, I'm off. Back online hopefully by the end of this week. Ciao!

  98. Arch_Evil_Angel on January 7th, 2013 9:26 pm

    I love how Halolz has become some people's personal blog site. No sarcasm, I genuinely find it entertaining/hilarious.

  99. Vabolo on January 8th, 2013 1:39 pm

    My opinion on Eragon: don't watch the movie.

  100. The Pualrus on January 8th, 2013 4:55 pm

    In other news: New Pokémon.

    I'll be honest: I haven't really learned them all from Gen V yet, and now this. Not sure what I make of it.

  101. wolfpax181 on January 8th, 2013 5:53 pm

    It's better drunk or after blunt force trauma.

  102. Soul Eater 676 on January 8th, 2013 6:10 pm

    Honestly, It looks alright. The 3D aspect can be used to make the game more interesting.

    The only thing on my mind was:


    I'm not going to lie, Gen IV were the lastest good legendary's in my opinion . I don't like zekrom, or reshiram.

    I'm actually looking forward to this.

  103. Earl the Lemon on January 8th, 2013 6:53 pm
  104. Vabolo on January 8th, 2013 8:35 pm

    Well, Black & White have been released in March 2011 in North America, so with the worldwide launch of X & Y in October 2013, the fifth generation will have lasted at least two and a half years, whereas Pokémon Gold & Silver were released a little over two years after Red & Blue in North America. NUMBERS!

    To be fair, two years might be enough to learn about 99 new pokémon, but two-and-a-half might not be enough for 156 new ones, especially after the 493 previous pocket monsters.

  105. Arch_Evil_Angel on January 8th, 2013 8:37 pm

    What isn't?

  106. Vabolo on January 8th, 2013 8:42 pm

    I'm just waiting for Trollfreak to somehow transform the new fire starter into a fire/fighting starter, and to see the fandom's expectations go

    Link got an extra life, something I don´t think he ever had, except maybe some weird elixir.
