About the site.
Legendary is a Nintendo site directory listing various types of sites dedicated to Nintendo related subjects. It was an idea created by two friends when we thought there weren't that many Nintendo related sites. As is turned out that wasn't true and they were instead scattered throughout the internet, making them rather difficult to find. In an attempt to bring them together Legendary was born! The directory was run by the two of us for a time but when life got too busy for him I took full ownership of the directory and moved it to my domain so that I could better take care of it. The directory was opened on December 8th, 2014.
I've been a fan of Nintendo basically ever since I was a kid playing on the Nintendo Entertainment System. I remember playing a lot of Tetris and Super Mario Bros. and even failing horribly at Zelda II and Final Fantasy. I even remember cheating with Duck Hunt and playing with the gun up against the TV so that I could actually hit the ducks. I have a lot of fond memories of my early days you could say, and that sparked a life long love of Nintendo. Truthfully, the only console I've owned that wasn't a Nintendo console was a PlayStation 2, and that was just so I could play Kingdom Hearts (a series I have sadly since fallen out of *cries*). While nowadays I only own a Nintendo 3DS and like the freedom of being able to play wherever I want Nintendo still holds a special place in my heart. Hopefully with this directory you can see just how much it means to me.
The directory was named "Legendary" because we felt it fits with so many Nintendo subjects: Pokémon, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Fire Emblem... Just to name a few. We also feel like Legendary really fits well with the spirit of Nintendo. When we think of Nintendo, we think of games with grand stories and legendary characters. No other name really tied in as well.
Currently we are on version 3 of the site which features Alm and Celica from the video game Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia for the Nintendo 3DS. I didn't realize it until Lethe mentioned it to me one day, but I seem to have this thing of using images from unreleased games as soon as there is artwork available for them and that's why I decided to use this image in a layout, haha! I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out too, which is good because I wasn't entirely happy with the previous layout. Anyway, the layout was made by me using Adobe Photoshop 7.0 and then coded by hand using Notepad. I forget where I found the image but patterns used were found at Subtle Patterns. Fonts used are called Mademoiselle Camille and Georgia. Previous layouts used may be found at my layout archive.
