The winner of the Super Mario Galaxy 2 Super suit contest is....

Ok. The time has finally come to announce the winner.....
The grand prize of a free copy of Super Mario Galaxy 2 goes to the J1 forum member "o0 LMoney 0o" for his Ram Suit Mario.
I would like to thank everyone who entered the contest, and for all the amazing participation and really sweet ideas they came up with.
Thank you all again for trying so hard to make this contest all that it could be and more.

o0 LMoney 0o's entry:

Hitting a block w/this Power-Up releases a ram that you have to dodge & hit w/a Butt-Slam. Once you do, you get the suit.
It's basically a RAM SUIT, in that it changes Mario's body to look more like a Ram (horns, hooves instead of boots, fur, etc.).

The suit gives Mario abnormally high attack power, and also gives him very noticeable horns on his head/hat. The horns allow him to ram (ha) into things/enemies, and the hooves also grant traction on otherwise unclimbable surfaces. Other than that, the specifics of this suit are displayed below:

1) With the horns, Mario's attack potential goes up. Enemies that would otherwise be partially/completely invincible against Mario's attacks are now susceptible to harm. With this suit, Mario CAN still be hurt, but he'd have little within the game world that he could not cause damage to, in turn. He could also potentially use this attack to get through certain walls/doors/floors. The "Ramming" attack (which, hypothetically, would replace the "Slide" command) would be VERY powerful, but difficult to control. He'd also get a "Head-Drop" attack (replacing the "Butt Slam") to hit enemies from the air. The "Ramming" attack could be charged by crouching, causing Mario to kick his right foot back off of the ground repeatedly, like a ram/bull.

2) With Mario's feet now replaced by hooves, Mario could potentially traverse terrain that before may have been considered adverse, like muddy/slippery surfaces. Weather effects like wind/rain would no longer be a deterrent to making a successful jump/sprint to a specific location. Getting wet would slow him down though-a "Spin-Attack" in mid-air would solve this.

Imagine being able to go through walls into other areas for hidden items or shortcuts to getting certain Stars, or being able to just run through most enemies without worrying about taking (too much) damage. Or using the "Head Drop" to repeatedly hit a button that brings up a door/statue that you eventually have to ram through to get a key...or reveal an enemy. Or fighting a boss that keeps covering it's weak point; you run into it's legs, making it double over, then you ram into it's head, and it falls then jump onto it and "Head Drop" into the weak point.

This would definitely add a bit more of an action vibe to the series, right?

Now that is an entry!! GREAT JOB!!!

MEGA MAN- The fan film!!

Yeah you read it right. Yes it's real, and you know what it's not half bad. Matter of fact it's entertaining. It was done by filmmaker Eddie Lebron. It's a fan film, so he's just showing his love for the Mega Man franchise.
For those who don't know Mega Man's story:
Based off of the popular Video Game, Megaman. In the year 20XX, Robot scientists Dr. Thomas Light and Dr. Albert Wily were completing their special project. Helper robots, which will help humans with everyday work. However, Dr. Wily had secretly reprogrammed the helper robots into fighting machines.
Wily intends to use these robots to take over the world. After Dr. Light learned of this, he had decided to reprogram one of his other helper robots. He has chosen Rock (his male helper robot). Dr. Light gave Rock state of the art combat technology, with the ability to copy another robot's weapon, thus Dr. light created Megaman. Now, Megaman has to stop Dr. Wily and his band of robots from taking over the world.
There is a sudden wave of indie filmmakers making video game movies that blow away anything that the "big boys" do. I say KEEP IT COMING GUYS!!!
The only difference from most fan films based on games is that this one is actually 90 minutes!! It's a full on movie!
For your viewing pleasure I bring you... Mega Man the fan film!!

I wish the big money went to guys like Eddie Lebron instead of the jokers that are in Hollywood now.
