It’s Sunday, Happy Mario Day everyone! I know I should coincide today’s look at Gaming History You Should Know with something Super Mario related, but this piece of gaming trivia is too good to ignore.

Ever since Nintendo signed a deal with Universal Studios, Theme Park fans have been eagerly anticipating Pokémon coming to a theme park in some way. Very few people remember that Pokémon have previously appeared in a Theme Park of their own, because the Park only existed for a brief time. I’m talking of course about the PokéPark, which operated in Japan in 2005 and in Taiwan in 2006.

But what was the PokéPark? What could you do in it? How much did it cost? The YouTube Channel Expedition Theme Park is one of the definitive YouTube Channels I look at when researching the history of Theme Parks, rides, and attractions all over the world. I don’t know if it was because I requested it or not, but almost a week after I asked him to look into the history of the PokéPark this video was posted! Check it out.

This is a great video. Thanks again to Expedition Theme Park for letting us feature them today! If you wanted to look up information about any theme parks, whether they’re defunct or still operating, I totally recommend checking them out.

Crackdown fans have been clamoring for Microsoft to offer backwards compatibility for Crackdown 2 so they can play the game on the Xbox One since Crackdown 3 was released. Yesterday, Microsoft came through and made Crackdown 2 playable on the Xbox One. To celebrate its release, Microsoft is offering the full digital version of Crackdown 2 completely free of charge on the Xbox Live Marketplace. Get it right now while it’s still free!

If you miss out on downloading the game during its free sale, since the game is fully backwards compatible now that means original Xbox 360 discs of the game will also work on the Xbox One.

Crackdown 2 is out now on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
