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!

Skyrim Switch Edition

So boy, I don’t know what I was expecting with this title. Skyrim has been so over done with remakes, re-releases, and the faint hope there may be another TES game in the near future vanishing.  But, nevertheless, I went in to this with positive mindset before it slowly changed to a “what am I doing with me life”  and curled under my sheets and sighed.

I personally don’t believe this should be a thing. Yes, Skyrim is a great game, worthy of all of it’s titles and mods ect. I don’t believe it should be a thing on the switch, or next gen. consoles because WE NEED A NEW TES GAME! Stop beating a dead horse and put out the next game please, Bethesda! PLEASE I AM BEGGING YOU! Nocturnalsave me if it’s coming out on the DS I’m gonna…*coughs* Sorry. I’m composed now.  So, back to this…game.

 

It’s Skyrim. That’s about all you need to know story wise. Same stupid intro scene, same dragon trying to kill you all, same choices as to who to follow and same quests for the most part from what I’ve played. There’s not much more to say about this. If you’ve played Skyrim you’ve well played Skyrim.

 

So what’s different that made you regret your life choices, Lily? Quite a few things. Let’s start with character customization. Everything was preset, nothing was truly customizable.  Perfect example, if you know me then you know that I play Khajiit. Tsa’Musa is my baby and has been since the Khajiit was a playable race.  I’ve tried to make them similar because I mean why not? Anyways! Back to the review! There was around 4 colors to choose from, 6 different eyes (3 colors with 2 different pupils) and 8 Hair styles (4 different cuts and same cuts with different earrings). When you go to customize the face, it’s literally all preset noses, mouths lips ect.  So, I mean I get it. It’s a tiny port, you can’t add everything. But still could have literally added more colors, more pupils ect ect ect. :/

 

So now, let’s talk controls! Holy Laggy joycon Batman! It was so difficult to move, fight and jump. It was really sad. I mean every other game I’ve never had problems with, but it just seems like this was a rushed, messy port and just needed some more love. It had the potential to be fantastic and a great way to slay the dragon’s while on the toilet or hiding in the back room being the best Dark Brotherhood Assassin in all of Tamriel.

 

All in all, I took it as a mobile game. But I didn’t expect it to be toned down THAT much. This game needs more love. It really does.

 

I give this game 7/10 Sweet Roles. I’m partial to Bethesda, and TES games. But I’m disappointed with everything else with the game that made it Skyrim. So please, Bethesda. TESVI TESVI TESVI TESVI TESVI TESVI TESVI !!!!!!!!

 

Want to try this out on your switch? You can go to most retailers and purchase it , or if you think you’re going to just purely love this game, you can purchase it  from Nintendo directly: https://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim-switch

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Imagine a world where you were asleep for a hundred years or so, only to wake up to find out the world isn’t what it used to be and Ganon is back at it being a bag guy! But what can you do? The answer? Whatever you want. The world belongs to you!

 

Welcome to the open world that is Breath of the Wild, a facilitating yet beautiful new entry in the LoZ series as well as a launch title for the New Nintendo Switch. With this game being as massive as well as all the hype, I will admit, this may be one of my favorite games of the year. Here’s why!

 

The graphics are something that I’ve been before, but seeing it for this game just made it something special. I’m not a gigantic fan of the cell shade type deal, but something about this drew me to it and I can’t really place why. Maybe it is the fan girl in me or maybe it’s something more. It’s hard to say. The graphics were so well constructed and just in it’s own original beauty, it’s hard to think of anything bad to say.

 

The creatures, people and bosses are beautiful and unique to the LoZ world. Each thing in the world brought something unique to the table whether it was a weapon, or a piece of food. Everything did something in this game and had some use. I don’t think I’ve killed anything and never had something I couldn’t use drop. I always had use for something, unless I couldn’t carry any more weapons, but that was ok 😀

 

So this brings up something else, there is durability loss in this game, and to me it’s a big weird, but at the same time I kind of like it. Durability is different game to game. Sometimes items are just unusable until you repair them, or sometimes they just disappear into oblivion. In BoW, you literally have to carry multiple weapons, shields and armor pieces with you at all times because once the item drops, you lose it forever. There’s no repair function in the game, and I find that a bit odd. I mean, there are some tricks that can “repair” them or you can find the unbreakable weapons, but I just find it weird. I literally can’t think of anything that doesn’t let you repair.

 

Combat is a lot of fun in this game, and they let you go anywhere you want, whenever you want. If you want to do the boss fight, then go. Fight him to your hearts content! May Zelda bless you…..like really. You’ll probably die a few times but where there’s a will there’s a way!   There’s no skills to really level up in the game, but you do unlock spells to help you out through trials and what not. There’s weapons you can steal from other creatures or find throughout the areas. But the biggest thing is there’s open combat. You can fight whatever you want, when you want and how you want.  My favorite part is you can literally stealthily kill your foes by sneaking into their camp and throwing a bomb, or shooting a fire arrow and stuff like that. The possibilities are endless!

 

The storyline is great as well. With it being an open world you have the typical Hero/Villain, Save the Princess type deal, but it goes a little deeper than that.  I’m aware the game has been out for awhile, but I also know there’s many people who have yet to play it, so I’m keeping it at that. I don’t want to spoil anything for you guys.

 

I really enjoyed the game, just like I enjoy my switch. I’m very happy with it and can’t wait to see if anything else happens in Hyrule.
I give LoZ BoW 9/10 rupees. I love this game and it’s do what you want whenever attitude. The fact that it’s gorgeous, creative and very inclusive make it a def. top 10 for 2017.  But there is still more to come am I right? Half way through the year we got this!!

The Nintendo Switch

So hi. It’s been awhile. In case you forgot, I am Lily. The amazing UnicornMuffin. Your awesome guide to the Gaming world and avid chinchilla lover.  So, first, I’ve been working a lot more and I am super sorry about it.  So, long story short someone quit which opened up more hours, and the original plan was to write reviews at work….but then ya know of course the works wifi will block it haha….Haha….ha….Well, look forward to this months blog that’s in the works right now too so let’s get this started!!!!

With all the hype around the Wii U a few years back, and the amount of pure disappointment I felt when I finally got the console,  I was actually a little skeptical about this system. I didn’t want to drop the money on a system I’d regret. But I will say, so far this is a pretty neat system.

 

The initial launch was a little rough for me. The only game I was interested was Zelda, like a lot of people heh. The down side of this was, I didn’t want to get burned out on the game while I waited for the all mighty Mario Kart 8 Deluxe to be released.  So I took the game real slow.  I couldn’t bear the thought of myself getting BORED with a game and be forced to watch this beautiful system collect chinchilla dust as I wait for new games to be released.

 

The concept of this system is actually pretty freaking neat. I like that I can play full HD games on the go. Sure, there’s the DS, Vita PSP ect ect, but you can’t just tear apart your system and be like ‘Here we go here’s part of my system let’s play”  I, for one, really enjoy the idea of dismantling my controller so I can play with a friend. I mean what’s better than enjoying a game with your bestie? Nothing. This brings me back to my couch CoOp days, ya know?

 

So why pick a switch over another console? Obiviously the exclusives.  Yeah, you can play Breath of the Wild and a few other games on the Wii U, but at the same time if something comes up and you can’t be home, then you really wont be able to play them. The idea of a full scale console with the option to become a mobile device is inticing.

 

Would I recomend the switch? So far, maybe. If you are totally into the games that are already out, then this is the perfect match for you! The greatness that ou have been waiting for is avaiable when you are ready and they’re in stock!

If you want a system that has more games, roll with a 3DS or something like that. That way you have a wider selection of games, and you can take it where you go. 🙂

It’s all about you!

All in all, I really enjoy this console. I love my switch and the games I have for it. I like that I can pick up a game when I’m on break or just super bored in the bathroom.

 

All in all, I say this is a great system, but it might not be for everyone….right NOW. With only a few titles out for it. It’s going to be hard to say “this is a must buy for everyone”  I do suggest, if you know someone who has one, ask to see it and play with it a little and gage whether it’s the system for you!

I give this fancy system 7/10 Joy-Cons.

 

I wish there were way more games out for it then what there currently is. I really enjoy the system but I kind of feel myself going back to my 3ds due to the lack of entertainment. I can only play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe so much until I get mad at Tanooki Mario. (That cheating asshole)

I'm live! Come say Hi!
