Shigeru Miyamoto hosted the most recent Nintendo Direct, which was all about the Super Nintendo World park in Japan. It opened with the legendary designer jumping out of a pipe. Thank you, Nintendo for this ‘Shop Contest gift.

Your challenge this week: Have some fun with Miyamoto in a pipe!

I was originally planning on doing a holiday-themed contest, but then Nintendo gave me this, and I had to do it. And no, I wasn’t planning on doing a carp contest, you weirdos. Keep that shit on Twitter.

And to help you all out, here’s a pre-cut out Miyamoto from the Direct. Consider this my Christmas gift to you all. I’m very disappointed that none of you got me anything this year. Very rude.

Next week, I’ll pick a winner and some of my favourites!

Please note that the image submission rules have changed just a little bit. We’re looking for images that are 800 pixels wide now!

How To Submit — Instructions

1. Create your ‘Shop and save it to your desktop. Images must be at least 800 pixels wide.

2. Go to the bottom of this post

3. This brings up a comment window. Click “Choose file” if you’re uploading your ‘shop from your desktop

4. Alternatively, you can upload the ‘Shop to a free image hosting service. I suggest imgur. Then paste the image’s URL into the field that says “Image URL.” Note: this must be the URL of the image itself, not the page where it is displayed. That means the URL ends in .jpg, .gif, .png, whatever.

5. Add editorial commentary and hit submit and your image will load. If it doesn’t, upload the image to imgur and paste the image URL as a comment. I will look at it.

6. Large-size images may not upload properly, though we have seen some animated .gifs upwards of 5 MB. If you’re still having trouble uploading the image, try to keep its longest dimension (horizontal or vertical) under 1000 pixels, or the whole thing under 2 MB.


  • And thankyou yet again again for waking up the kid with your unmuted auto ads while i get some brekkie in before work. Seriously, if it wasnt for your quality writing, Alex… I’d have blown this collage of advertisements back when Serrels had the sense to gtfo. Honestly, come the Eff on, guys- Between this noisy ad bullshit, the endless loop of boring-ass Pedestrian video articles (could not give 2 shits about some twat “hitting the bags hard” the 1st time i saw it) and trying to find the actuall article between the labyrinth of goddamn ads dominating my tablet’s page, I’m really left wondering if it’s still worth stopping in to read this site at all anymore. Bah humbug and thx for waking the lil one up. May a thousand fleas infest your crotch til things improve. Oh and ditch the bloody yanks more concerned with agendas than gaming too plz. Cheers.

    • There are browser extentions you can use to blackhole pedestrian completely which will make your life a lot better. Bit harder on a tablet, you’d have to jailbreak/root it to add blackholing domains so probably not an option if it’s still getting support/updates. Other option is a pihole which may or may not be a fun project depending on your perspective. Endless guides for it out there.
