New Minza page on video game vocabulary

This page grew out of my reply to Arthaey Angosii's thread "Preparing
for Winter-een-mas" from 1/13. In addition to the titles of video and
arcade games (revised to the new Minza spelling), I've added two
sections on specific names and terminology in the Pokémon and Legend of
Zelda series of games. Nothing much yet, but I go over the derivation of
the Minza words for "Venusaur" (Dažebiréi) and "Machop" (Čalbar), from
luakí components that correspond to the Japanese names, and a handful of
names from the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time including "Hyrule"
(Xáirøl) and "Skulltula" (Stalčura). I'll be expanding these with more
words, and perhaps add some of the Prince's cousins from Katamari
Damacy, characters and places from Baten Kaitos, or others as I get time
over the next few days....

Happy Winter-een-mas!
