DJ Coco The AOL Username Challenge! Sep 19 2014, 12:20 AM

User Icon
Hello, DJ Coco here! Or as you may refer to me now: ~_^deejay_cawcaw42^_~

What's up with the name you ask? It has been AOLified! Every year more than 300,000 people are born with real life AOL Username syndrome. Never heard of it? That's why we must spread awareness now as it's becoming more and more widespread! The people affected by this terrible disease are born with a rare condition that doesn't allow them to be named after any already existing name. Their name can also only consist of valid symbols, no spaces, only underscores are allowed. With horrible names given to them like -__yolo_swaggerboy69__-, these people are often made fun of and bullied at schoool, not to mention the severe side effects of this condition. In case of -__yolo_swaggerboy69__-, enough funds were raised this boy could undergo name change surgery, but even then doctors deemed it too dangerous to remove the 69 from his name!

What can we do to help? We put ourselves in the lives of these people! I introduce to you: the AOL Username Challenge! Pick your old AOL Username or if you don't have one, create one, and go by it! Don't forget to nominate three people who also have to undergo this task after you adapted your new or old name! Change your name on Skype and everywhere where you can! But don't nominate if you don't also donate towards the AOL Username Foundation, which helps support people who are really affected by it.

With this out of the way, here is an update for you guys! In honor of the 120 people that passed away the last 365 days because of Underscore Cancer.

VinnyVideo Busy signal Sep 5 2014, 12:11 AM

I have been an excessively busy VinnyVideo this week, but that doesn't mean I can't still post updates! (This is assuming that "reading 1,000 pages over two weeks" qualifies as busy.)

Congratulations to Kritter for winning the August Game of the Month with his awesome Mario Land: Minigame Mayhem. Go play it if you haven't already!

I also have been given the extremely important responsibility of reminding you that the 2014 NFL season opens in about 20 minutes.

Hey, MFGG. Yoshbert here. I, too, am now part of the quality control staff!

I look forward to seeing what you guys submit, and hopefully (if they make the cut), you'll have the pleasure of seeing your creations on MFGG's hallowed e-halls. Please understand take this into consideration, though: I expect to see nothing but top-notch content from you all.

Here's a reminder: if by perchance, your submission doesn't make the cut, don't worry! We'll give you some pointers on how to improve your work, and you can always try again. Here's hoping for some good times.

Also, be sure to check out DJ Coco's Super Mario Country, which won MFGG's Game of the Month award for July 2014. Congratulations to her!

Ugh, I edited this update spiel five times before I was satisfied with it. I really need to proofread the stuff I write.

VinnyVideo We don't have a new affiliate this week Aug 14 2014, 11:32 PM

Three new affiliates in as many weeks is still pretty cool, though! This update contains some other delectable goodies, though, most notably Kritter's Mario Land: Minigame Mayhem, which is finally hitting the mainsite after a decade of development. I think you'll like it.

Congratulations to Cap'n Coconuts for winning the June Game of the Month with his Luigi Land: the Bootleg Invasion. Tasty.

VinnyVideo Hey there, everyone! Aug 7 2014, 10:54 PM

Lots of cool things happened during the past week on MFGG. First of all, we're now hiring new QC staffers. If you think you'd enjoy being the first person to see the awesome things that come into the queue - as well as the not-so-awesome things - go click on this topic and apply today!

MFGG has yet another new affiliate! Talkhaus is Raocow's community, and it's active and full of people who enjoy playing and discussing fangames and similar works. For those counting, that's three new affiliates in as many weeks. How tasty.

And now that my summer classes are finished, I got off my bottom and typed the Game of the Month award for May. Give C-Division a round of applause - he gave us some tasty stuff that is deserving of some recognition.

In addition, Fujiko made us all draw pictures of Kirby using the hands we don't usually use for drawing. Needless to say, some of them are incredible works of art, depending on your definition of "incredible."

DJ Coco New Affiliate and GOTM Winner of April! Aug 1 2014, 12:57 AM

User Icon
You probably already noticed - we're affiliated with SMW Central, your primary SMW hacking resource, now too! Check them out - they've got lots of cool stuff on their site. Also, VinnyVideo will face some less busy times in the near future and nothing says that clearer than a new GOTM thread, even if it dates back to April. Congratulations to Castor for winning GOTM with his Mario vs. the Koopas Remix! Be sure to check that one out, it's a great game. It also is rumored VinnyVideo is in reality a cute little ball that hops around making funny noises. Anyway, enjoy the update.

VinnyVideo Super Update Country Jul 24 2014, 10:56 PM

User Icon
Go check out Super Mario Country. It's one of the finest Gameboy-styled platformers you'll ever see! I think you'll enjoy it.

Also, MFGG has a new affiliate! SuperMarioBrosX.org is the most active community for the SMB X development tool, and it boasts an impressive collection of SMB X episodes and resources. We'll be adding another new affiliate banner in the next couple of days, so keep an eye on the bar on the left side of the screen.

VinnyVideo Watching, reading, and writing Jul 18 2014, 5:52 PM

The 3 W's and R's, or maybe the 2 W's and 1 R, or maybe 2 W's and 2 R's. I don't know.

In the mood to watch some Metroid games? Metroid HQ, one of our affiliates, is relaunching their site and is running a Metroid Marathon that you might just want to check out! You can find more information here. (This reminds me that I really need to play the classic Metroid games someday.)

If you'd rather do a lot of reading, I posted Part Two of a report about the results of our MFGG user survey.

And if you'd like to give your keyboard a workout, you can rustle up some unreviewed games in this week's Review Drive! Cap'n Coconuts deserves another round of applause for helping to compile this list:


* Super Mario Bros Attack of the Bloopers (SMB2011) by BuzzNBen
* Ludwig vs. the Goombas by Syr
* Blooper's Revenge by Pyroguy
* Super Wario 4Tune DEMO 2 by WwwWario
* Super Mario All Stars: Battle Royale by GameStar18
* Mariovania by KoBeWi
