Did you hear
that!? A video game EXPERT! Wait, I thought all of their Nintendo Hotline
people were video game experts. So does that mean, that everybody on that
hotline simply read this book? Well screw paying the 2 bux per minute,
let's buy the book!
seriousness, this book really was the king of all Nintendo books when it
came out. It was literally a Nintendo player's bible. It covered over 90
games, including full-color screenshots, character listings, maps, and
tips, and other little nuggets of info. For example, did you know the
names of the Ikari Warriors are "Paul" (red headband) and "Vince" (blue
headband)? Well you would know that if you owned The Official Nintendo
Player's Guide. Well you'd also know it if you were paying attention to
what I've written.
states the following about The Amazon from the game Pro Wrestling: "This
wrestler wears a mask and his nationality is unknown. He uses illegal
techniques like biting and attacking with Deadly Weapons whenever
the referees aren't watching." Now there weren't any deadly weapons in the
game at all, so I can only assume that The Amazon is a real person and was
informing Nintendo's writers about his real-life fighting techniques.
Either that or they were just making up some nonsense to fill up extra
space in the book, just like I'm doing in this sentence right now.
