More Thoughts From Me #116: Chrono Trigger

The first time I played Chrono Trigger…I didn’t like it. This was back during the SNES days and I didn’t like rpgs back then, with the expectation of Earthbound. It wasn’t until I played Final Fantasy 7 that I got addicted to rpgs and after that, I got a chance to play Chrono Trigger on the Playstation 1 and I loved it. Now Chrono Trigger is one of my all-time favorite games. If you’ve played the game, I hope you…

More Thoughts From Me #113: Mortal Kombat Asks You To “Finish Him!”

I was really young when the original Mortal Kombat for the NES came out. I remember thinking it was gross but I wasn’t offended by it and neither was my dad. The game was violent but it was over the top cartoon violence. Of course not everyone saw it like that. A small group and the media tried to turn Mortal Kombat into a controversy  There have been a lot of Mortal Kombat games since then but none of them…

More Thoughts From Me #104: SNES Classic Hands-on Impressions

I tried and failed to get an NES Classic. Then the SNES Classic came out and I failed to get that too. I thought I’d never get either one of them. And then early last week, Amazon had a Lightning deal on the SNES Classic. I managed to finally buy an SNES Classic! Now that I’ve played with the system some, is the SNES Classic worth all this trouble? How are the games on the system? How do they play?…

Mario Party: The Top 100 Review

Mario Party titles have been on the downswing in recent years, with things beginning to fall off the rails around Mario Party 6 or 7. While the final three installments of the franchise have still been great fun - and we reviewed them all fairly well - there was still something missing that the previous titles all had. Once thing, though, that Nintendo has never stalled out on, within the Mario Party franchise, are the mini games. When compared to any other home party title, Mario Party has some of the best - if not these best - mini games available, and to ...

Nintendo Direct 9-13-17

There was a Nintendo Direct today! If you missed it, please check out the video below and then please come back for my impressions on it. I have a split opinion about today’s Nintendo Direct. I thought that the 3DS lineup was ok, meanwhile the Switch’s lineup was awesome. I’ll talk about the 3DS lineup first. The first game to be shown off in today’s Nintendo Direct was the upcoming Pokémon games. As you may know, I’m not a fan…

League of Evil Review

Mission Log. 8/31/2017. The League of Evil have sent their scientists out to cause trouble. I have been dispatched to elimiate them by any means neccessary. I prefer my fists. The League of Evil will not win. With my Nintendo Switch in hand, I’ll take them down and then go out for a beer. League of Evil’s story is pretty simple, but the addition of humor helps it a bit. Its a very dry humor, so its possible that some…

Nindies Summer Showcase 2017

Nintendo of America did a Nindies Summer Showcase video presentation today. A lot of games were shown off. Check out the video below and please come back for my opinion of the showcase and the games shown. The Nindies Summer Showcase today was really good. I wasn’t sure it would be at first because I didn’t find the initial games that impressive (Super Meat Boy Forever looked ok, but not my sort of game). But then we got big news…
