Hooray. You bought a brand-new Windows laptop and, for whatever reason, the manufacturer was nice enough to let you go through the installation process yourself instead of filling your new system full of crapware for you.

You check into your hotel after a hard day of travelling. All you want to do is kick off your shoes, set the temperature to whatever hot or cold extreme you wouldn't be able to get away with at home, and say hello to your Netflix queue before some much-earned rest. And then you realise the terrible truth: Your Wi-Fi connection is horrible or, worse, non-existent.

Getting up in a board room or on a stage and exposing yourself to the judgmental eyes of an entire group of people is damn scary.

The same guy who created the ever-crazy Super Mario 64 Online last year - which Nintendo quickly hit with the copyright hammer - is back with a brand-new creation. This time, he's taken the world of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and stuffed it full of Super Mario 64 characters.
