Alright, so November was one tough month to choose a single game of the month. Sure, the new consoles that were released are nice and shiny, but the real highlights in game design came from Nintendo this month. One is the best Mario game in years, the other is a sequel to A Link to the Past that does its lineage proud. Between these two games, it’s one tough choice. Read more
Thor: The Dark World is the second film in Marvel’s Thor movie franchise (third if one counts The Avengers), and looks to not only delve deeper into Thor’s chunk of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but also shed some more light on the good brother/evil brother relationship between its titular hero (Chris Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleson). But after a year that saw both the clunky Iron Man 3 and the sleep-inducing Man of Steel, does Thor have what it takes to redeem 2013’s super hero output? Read more
After putting a good chunk of time in Nintendo’s year-cappers, here are some of my thoughts on the two newest releases in gaming’s most beloved franchises. Read more
Mario Party: Island Tour brings the long-running party series to the 3DS. But just how does Mario Party’s return to handheld’s fare? Read more
Huzzah! Today, November 21 2013, marks the twenty-third anniversary of the Super Nintendo’s launch in Japan (and by extension, Super Mario World’s 22nd anniversary as well).
It also marks the nineteenth anniversary of Donkey Kong Country’s North American release, and Donkey Kong Country 2’s eighteenth anniversary in Japan (it was a day earlier in America). Pity DKC3 misses out by a single day…
But I’ve flaunted my gaming trivia quite enough! This is a day to celebrate all things SNES, which as far as I’m concerned is still the single greatest gaming console ever in life.
Super Nintendo, Mario World, the first two DKCs… it’s like this day was a significant calender date for Nintendo to release games or something. Well, they certainly made it significant, anyway.
Happy anniversary, Super Nintendo! Thanks for all the amazing memories, and for having such a great library of classics that have withstood the test of time.
It’s seems like every other blog these days is a blog apologizing for the lack of blogs. But I’ve done so many of these blogs I guess there is no shortage of blogs.
Whatever. I don’t know.
Either way, here I am, with yet another filler blog trying to justify my lack of real blogs.
I promise (or do I?) that this will be the last such blog. I plan on getting back to doing proper movie and game reviews again (at least as proper as my reviews ever were, anyway).
So yeah, I’ll do my best to get some reviews in and stuff ASAP. Maybe a movie and a game or two (or three, or four). I should also get back to my YouTube endeavors. That new channel won’t do video game reviews on its own.
See you around I guess. What’s that? You’re not sticking around. Oh, well that’s okay… I understand.
