Super Mario Party Switch

I have really been looking forward to this game for awhile. Since we had out extra copies checked out, I wasn’t able to do Assassin’s creed but that’s ok! I’m still happy with my choice regardless of what game is today’s review.

So first, I’m excited that I was able to play this game alone. As someone who has very little friends that I could play with, I’m excited that i could rely on NPCs  to be there for me and want us to win. I am so grateful I have them in my shy guy life.

So I’m going to be rather honest here, and let you all know it’s been a few years since I’ve actually sat and played a Mario Party game. I honestly can’t really remember the last time I played one, so from what I DO remember (I’m pretty sure I played on the Wii) I had a lot of fun, and with the new additional play modes, I think it has done the game a lot of justice.  I really liked that I could play three different ways.

 

Old Way: Board game. I forgot how fun it was to watch the NPCs roll, mess up  and all of that other fun stuff. That’s about the only thing I really remember from Mario party games. That and the cute mini games that remind me of Warioware. God, I love that game. If you ever want a fun game to play with your friends hitting the booze, this is it. So the one thing I really love is that each character has their own dice. Which I love. I am a huge Shy guy fan, and my dice was pretty good mix. I think it was like 04446. I don’t really remember haha. You can set up how many turns you have per game and it’s nice enough to give you the average time it takes to do one game.  You can get allies too that can help you with rolls and such. It’s great. When you get them at least haha. When your npc foes get them, it’s a little

 

Rhythm or Rhyme! Both, I’m terrible at.  So safe to say, I was total garbage for these games.  But, the great variation there was made it fun even though I was super terrible I liked the whack a mole and the batting cage. I don’t have too much more to say on that

I also rather enjoy the rafting mode as well, but this one really requires teamwork, and a lot of us  screaming at the NPCs Mostly. “MARIO CALM DOWN” or “YOSHI WHAT ARE YOU DOINg?!?!” It made for a lot of fun in the long run. With the endless outcomes, it’s safe to say that none of the games will play the same. I really like these kind of games.

 

All in all, I lost several hours into this game, and I’m sure if I wasn’t really paying attention,  trust me. All in all, I recommend this game if you have friends and want to play with them. The only caution I have is that the game is only compatible with Joycons. That was kind of turn off for me …that or you can pay to play with your friends on another switch. Not that I’m against the pay to play, but I am against paying for more controllers (jk).

 

At the end of the day, I give this game a 9/10 stars. I really liked it. It was fun to play alone as well with other people. It’s a great way to kill several hours or just a minute.

Super Mario Oddesy

There’s going to be several reviews for some older games on here for a few weeks. I apologize in advanced :3 Forgive me >.<~<3

Man, I really don’t know where to start with this game.  I also mean this in a good way. This is a game that has gotten a lot of hype over the year and every Mario and Nintendo fan was waiting for the next real Mario game. I mean let’s face it. Mario and Rabbids was alright but no replay value and RTS FPS? Really? Sorry, we’ll do this at a different time…really. I promise.

 

So, I want to start this off with the controls, because I feel like I can spice things up a little with chaning the order I do review, but I want I also want to make this a topic that you should cnsider when getting this game…It really uses the Joy Cons the way they were meant to be used with out taking away from the game itself, but fear not as you can also use the Pro Contoller, Hari Pad and any other sort of device on your switch without losing a lot of the aspects of Cappy and his sick tricks!

 

So, going back to the actual controls, you can control what Cappy does with a flick of a wrist or even a push of a button, you have all of control. To do a sick spin, move your wirst one way, to do a sicker spin move it the other way. I feel like they really used the Joycons and I feel like it made the game more fun.

 

There’s a decent amount of puzzles and problem solving in the game as well. Figuring out how to get the extra moons and get from one area to the next kind of makes you think. With the many different ways you can use Cappy, it makes the game a lot more fun and added elements that just make the Mario games more rich and fun to play.  I like games that make me actually THINK instead of “this is your objective. go here. Good gamer. Here’s your treat”

So, what does Cappy do? Boy…let me tell you. First, he gives you the option to jump on him, throw him spin him ect ect ect. But the most important part if you can use Cappy to take control of other creatures or objects!! The video with the T-rex with the mustache? Real. Mario turning into a ball of energy? Real. Goomba? Yes. Frogs? Ribbit! Almost everything living (or electrical) can be Mario! I love how unique this is and how literally every creature has it’s own powers and ways to play. Bravo guys! This is an amazing element to the game!!!

I will admit, I didn’t use any walk through or stuff during my initial play through. I wanted to experience everything in the raw. But when I got stuck, I was amazed on how many things I MISSED while playing. Luckily you’re able to go back and do them. Phew! With so much to do after you finish, this game was well worth the 60 USD and much more!

 

The story line is really the same as all of the other Mario games. Peach gets captured and you have to save her ect ect ect. I mean you get to crash a wedding and if you get the Peach Amiibo you can have Mario is a wedding dress. So that’s pretty fun. There’s not really much more to the story. I mean you meet Cappy and he tells you about the Odyssey and how it’s powered and what to do. But then it’s straight back to “Save the Princess Mario!”

 

All in all, I loved the game. I still do. It’s one of the few Switch games I own currently and so far I don’t regret it. Hopefully that won’t change 😀

 

I give Super Mario Odyssey 7/10 moons. I love the challenge, the puzzles and the game play.  It’s a fun game with decent replay value and so many hidden things you have to explore! Check it out!

Super Smash Bros. For the Wii U

With so many new games out, it was hard for me to find the time to sit down and write about the ones I have played. So I’m going to start with the one, in my opinion, that is well over due and everyone needs to give it a chance.

 

I remember sitting in front of my TV with my best friend beside me. I turn on my gamecube and there it is on the screen. “SUPER SMASH BROS.” (It was Melee of course because it was gamecube). Endless amounts of fun came from this game, especially during summer vacation.

 

Super Smash Bros for the Wii U really reopened my childhood memories of playing with my friends. The endless hours playing this fantastic game it gave me, I couldn’t wait to play it when I heard it was being remade! Now, you may be asking yourself something. “But Unicorn….They came out with Brawl….that was a remake too”  Well…yeah but…Never mind that!

 

Truth be told, I was super excited about this game because from what I have gathered, there weren’t that many CD problems with this game, and I’m sorry but Handheld versions to me of this game aren’t going to give me the thrill of holding the controller and the “risk” of throwing it into your TV. Oh yeah, those were the days. Please note: I don’t condone the breaking of your TV’s by anger.

 

So let’s start with the basics right? Many of the original characters plus new ones are here! The one that was weird to me was they made Zelda and Sheik two separate people. Zelda back in the day was one of my favorite players. But I found myself leaning more towards another character nowadays. With many of the old faces, there are many news ones as well. They added Bowser Jr, Greninja Pac Man and many others.

 

There isn’t much of a stroy line to this game, you beat the tar out of your friends, CPU and other unlockable characters who you swear are always cheating. There are several mini games you can play besides the brawls. My favorite game besides brawling, is the Smash mode. You’re put against (cheating) teams and after so many you get to fight the character you can unlock. How awesomely nostalgic?

 

The controls, to me, are 100% the same and that helped my childhood blossom in this game. I did noticed that sometimes the controls wouldn’t register and when I got knocked off the edge, I couldn’t get back most of the time. I know what you are probably thinking too “what a terrible player” Well no…even when I would try to jump on the stage it wouldn’t recognize it.  Now, I’m not saying this is a huge flaw in the game, and it may even be my controller, but I’ve seen it happen with a new controller and even the WII U controller.

 

There are a few more things that made me fall for this game again. The graphics and the stages. I’m not saying that the graphics for all of the other games were terrible, they weren’t. In Fact for the time periods they were beautiful and fantastic! But Drool on the screen? Come on, who doesn’t like seeing that when you smash your foe into oblivion?! If you don’t well…maybe you’re into the new stages? I”m personally a fan of the non moving stages. I felt them to be more challenging then the stages now where there’s actually a routine and if you blink you’re gone.

 

I do like that we have more places to pummel faces but some of the stages are just so silly I can’t think of a good reason to have them. I saw one of my favorite stages from the Gamecube version. The spaceship. When I saw that one I was immediately needed to play this stage. For those who haven’t played it yet, it’s not the same. You jump from little ship to little ship all while trying NOT to get knocked off during stage changes. And we all know the CPU cheats. (wink wink)  Though, after awhile you get use to the moving stages it’s nice to have the old time ones too, like Ness’s Town of Onett (or Namic when you’re super pumped on adrenalyn), where your biggest problem were those stupid cars that you don’t see because you’re too busy fighting n things.

 

All in all this game is fantastic! The new characters, stages and games just made this a perfect memory to add to my nostalgia collection. If you haven’t had a chance to play the original and Melee, you really need to!  It may help understand the “frustrations” of small children without the real danger of getting controllers thrown at you. (Long story, but totally worth it)

 

I give this game a 9/10 Hammers. Like I said, this game has been a wonderful addition to the Smash Bro’s world and really woke up the child in me. I haven’t felt like this towards a game in a long time, save Omega Ruby (review next weeeeeeeek! WHOOT!)  If you like the inner child in you and want to let it out as an adult, this is the perfect game for you! My only real complaints in the stages and some of the controls.

 

Release your inner child and definitely pick up this game!!
