Haze Hype - Day 5: Nectar Is Not Heroin

Some people seem to have taken a disliking to the use of "drugs" in Haze. Nintendo's Miyamoto (i.e., Mr. Nintendo) was not very pleased at the use of Nectar in Haze, opposite of Cliffy B. who thought the game looked cool. But then again, Cliffy B. would say a goat smoking a stogie while wearing lingerie and holding a 2x4 and a grenade launcher is cool. So he doesn't count. But anyway, Kotaku brought out a good point about Miyamoto's own drug related content in Mario games; eating mushrooms to various effects; using pipes to get to a "magical" land; and eating plants in order to fly or transmute your form. Sorry Mr. Nintendo, you're just angry that Haze has a downside to their drugs, as opposed to the super-happy portrayal of the drug references in Mario games.

Big LOL. While the article is about Haze and I like the game (big fan of Free Radical & their TimeSplitters) the most awesome part was the one above with Cliffy! Both Haze and Epic FTW!

Thats funny. I was just about to post about Mario being on Mushrooms when I saw this post. Its the first thing that came to mind. Mario is a 60's hippy. Cartman will kill all hippies.

Has anyone ever wondered what hidden messages/easter egg would pop up if you play the Mario theme song (quite arquably the most recognizable video game theme song) backwards? ;)

I don't know, that's why I was asking.

Miyamoto has no room to talk, that happy dope induced japonese developer.

I mean his games are about an italian plumber who eats mushrooms to grow shink and have the ability to have fire come out of his hand, and he is complaining about drug use? I honestly thought his first mario game was like alice in wonderland and about how drug use is bad, and yes that is what alice in wonderland is about.
