they seem to have disappeared what happened to them?
Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!
For the month of February we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 199 people to reach our goal of 3,100 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in March!
Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

The same thing stated above applies to those too.

It's highly unlikely that they're coming back.

The longer I spend on this site, the more amazing it seems that Tom didn't succumb to depression long ago.

Unfortunately, Nintendo is a company that can't bear to stand by when someone makes a derivative work with their characters. That's unfortunate because they have a long history of creating engaging and imaginative video game characters which many beginning animators often tap into.
I can't really blame Tom for his decision to remove the games. Legally, there isn't much he can do. He could make a case that all of the sufficiently creative and original flash content which only make use of a character's likeness are actually fair use derivatives.
But this also means that there will be less "Mario vs Sonic DBZ Naruto OC Donut Steel" sprite battles. I'm alright with that.

What is fair use?

For now, but for how long?
Also, a few questions...
1. Is Nintendo going after any other Nintendo-based content on Newgrounds? Metroid, Zelda, Pokemon, SSB series, etc.?
2. Is Nintendo going after the Romhack people as well? The link goes to a site entirely devoted to SMW hacks, for starters. Other games have been hacked as well.
3. What are those specific games being targeted? All of them? If we had a copy of the list, we would know better which ones to try and save.
