I loved the original Super Nintendo, so I was super excited about the SNES Classic mini. I was lucky enough to get in on a Best Buy pre-order, so I didn’t have to line-up on release date.
It comes pre-loaded with 21 games including the never-before released game Starfox 2.
It’s so small and cute. I placed it beside my Mimikyu and Sailormoon plushies for size comparison.
It fits right into the palm of my hand.
It took me a second to find where to plug controllers. A flap at the front opens up to reveal the slots.
You can easily toggle between the 21 games and any save states. Let’s be real, to play like the old days, there will be no save stating!
I already unlocked Starfox 2 by beating the first level of Starfox (it’s harder than I remember). Now to continue reliving the past and playing through all 21 games!
I love games that interact with my Step Count and I almost collected everything in Wokamon. I did a quick search for pedometer games and while there were many, Walkr looked the cutest.
The game uses your steps as energy to explore space and collect fun planets.
It looks like there are a million things to explore and upgrade so this will get me walking for a while!
I’m addicted to Puyo Puyo Tetris lately! It’s a mix of both games and new modes. It’s crazy how fun both classic games still are like a million years later.
I like the online competitive mode but whenever I get paired up with someone from Japan the match is rather frightening! There are some games where I can survive a long time and win, others that I’ll lose in less than 30 seconds. I guess I have to sharpen my skills more.
Add me on your Switch and maybe we can play sometime!
I’m excited to delve into Mario Kart on the Nintendo Switch! I bought a pro-controller and the steering wheel thing for the Joy-Cons. They even threw in a pair of Mario socks for free.
Now to sharpen my skills before racing people.
Since I bought the Nintendo Switch, I’ve been hooked on Zelda. The new game is beautiful and satisfying as someone who is an occasional gamer.
The best part about it is you can go at your own pace. I haven’t come across any timers and there are so many puzzles and shrines that help you feel the sense of accomplishment along the way.
The magic of this new Zelda, is that you don’t really have to follow the story. You can wander pretty much in any direction and find something to do. Whether it’s killing a mob, solve puzzles in a shrine or try to boat across a river.
Dying also doesn’t seem like a big deal. You can pick up where you started. Sometimes deaths are funny. I occasionally climb up mountains to be killed by a goat or try too hard to capture a good horse that ends up kicking me in the face.
I’m still nowhere near done the game but I’m having so much fun in it already!
The best thing about the Nintendo Switch is that you can take it on the go, like a giant Gameboy. For the first week, I didn’t have any protection and was carrying it around in my laptop bag. I found this case and screen protector on Amazon, for half the price of what it would be in store.
The case by Butterfox, has enough space for tons of games as well as a pouch for extra controllers and the charger. It even is small enough to fit into my Pikachu backpack!
Now I’m ready to take my Switch on the Go.
After a super depressing few weeks of search for a Nintendo Switch, I finally got my hands on one (actually two). I bought one for Nash too so we don’t have to share. If you’re lucky the Source at the Eaton’s Centre (by Queen Street subway entrance) had a bunch.
Short blog post today. I’m off to play Zelda.
Recently, Facebook announced HTML 5 games that you can play with your friends in Messengser.
When you are playing with one person the competition is friendly.
However, it can get intense in a group chat! It is definitely a bit more heated. I only hope that they will turn off notifications every time someone plays a game. I only want to know if you beat me!
Now time to play some word games.
I spent a lot of time in the new Pokémon game perfecting my outfit. I spent $32,000 on shoes.
Now I am a fashion goth and would totally wear this outfit in real life.
Moon! Nash has Sun. I am super excited to have not too much planned besides playing the new Pokemon games that take place in a place that looks like Hawaii.
