I won!

I wanted to let everyone know that I entered a contest over at CoffeeWithGames a couple of weeks ago for a chance to win 2 years worth of FREE coffee.  Well, good news (for me) everyone, I WON!

Yeah baby!

 

Scott from CoffeeWithGames was gracious enough to host this contest on his site, CoffeeWithGames.  For those of you who don’t know, Scott analyzes data from the Nintendo Channel and gives us his insightful and detailed take on Wii games.  We have linked to a few of his articles in the past, and I encourage you to read up on his blog for information, game analysis and more.

Oh, and if anyone is interested here is my contest entry. It is a video game themed poem.

I awaken, all alone in a field,
surrounded by mountains
Defenseless, having no sword nor a shield.

What is this I hear?
My ears do they deceive?
Strange music abounds,
Reminiscent of classic, 8-bit sounds.

I look yonder, a cave is what my eyes perceive!
As I approach the entrance I see light from a flame,
Briefly, I am reminded of a magical old game.
Upon entering I see a bearded old man,
standing between two flames with something in his hand.

As I approach, he speaks,
“It is dangerous to go alone. Take this!”

I am jarred by those familiar words
Hesitantly, I reach for the sword.

Then he hits me on the top of my head and
says “Wake up Jeremy, time to get out of bed.”

Oh boy, it’s Monday morning, back to the grind.
I roll out of bed, and leave my dreams behind.
I step into the kitchen, right up to the pot,
grab a filter, measure out some grounds and whatnot.

Then I sit at the table as I wait for my brew,
Flip open my 3DS, to play for a few.

What game you ask? Why Legend of Zelda, of course.
I got it for free as an early adopter, and I have no remorse
For spending 249 plus tax on day two
Now excuse me please as I enjoy some of that brew.

About the author:

Jeremy’s love of gaming, especially Nintendo started in the late 80’s when his parents bought him and his older brother an NES. Many hours were spent playing Mario and Duck Hunt. Eventually Jeremy graduated to bigger and better games and systems, like the SNES, GC, Wii, 3DS, and finally to the Wii U. Ask him what the defining moment of his childhood gaming was and he’ll answer, “the day I beat Zelda 2.” To this day that game holds a special place in his heart. His favorite types of games are platformers.

Jeremy started blogging for NintendoFuse in October 2010. He started off as a lurker on the forums who won a free copy of And Yet It Moves on WiiWare. From there he realized he liked the forums and the site and wanted to remain a part of it. He was brought on board shortly thereafter and has helped post news and reviews for the past couple of years. Currently Jeremy has taken a step back to focus on family and school. He assists in minor back-end site maintenance from time to time.
