10 Spooky Halloween Games for Nintendo Fanboys

Boo!!  Happy Halloween from Wii Are Fanboys.  I know its not Halloween just quite yet, but what I usually like to do in the weeks leading up to Halloween is to play lots of Halloween themed video games to get me into a spine-tingling mood.  So without further ado, here is my list of recommendations for an extremely ghoulish time this year.

Demake Game Profile: Super Smash Land

Have you downloaded Super Smash Land yet?  If you haven’t yet, what are you waiting for?  It’s a free PC game (created by Dan Fornace) that was inspired by the Super Smash Brothers series.  It was just recently released on 9/14/11.  Super Smash Land is Smash Brothers as if it were released on the Nintendo Gameboy.  Think of the game, Battle Kid for the NES, except that it never went to cart.  The visuals, and sounds of the game are of 100% pure Gameboy retro goodness.  As if you had to have another reason to download it, I’ve gotten some serious hands-on with the game, and I’m happy to report that, for a non-Nintendo made game, it plays extremely well.  Well done.  I am very excited for this game.  Curiously enough, we have never gotten a Gameboy version of Smash Brothers.  This game fills in nicely in that regard.  If you love the Smash Brothers series, you’ll naturally love this game.

What Is That?!

How arrogant of me. How utterly arrogant. All these years I had always assumed I knew mostly everything there was to ever know about the Nintendo Gameboy. I was wrong. About a month ago, I discovered a rare Gameboy peripheral that I’d never seen before or ever knew existed until now – the Konami Hyperboy. How could I have not known about this for all these years is beyond me. It’s a peripheral that was released by Konami in 1991 (never released in the US) that turns your Gameboy into a tabletop arcade. I had always viewed the Gameboy itself as a hybrid system; a cross between an NES and a Game & Watch. With this peripheral, it pushes the Gameboy more into the Game & Watch tabletop territory, which is what I love about it. This has got to be the coolest GameBoy peripheral ever made.

Kirby’s Return To Dream Land

So the Kirby box art is kind of ugly, and the game it’s self is looking a bit flat, but the game looks like it plays like the classic Kirby that I long for. I honestly feel like Epic Yarn has more depth in the levels then Return To Dream Land and it’s flat.

The first level.

But I do have some good things to say about Kirby’s Return To Dreamland…

On a recent podcast, Brad and Adam talked about some gameboy games that they would like to see on the 3DS virtual console service.  To complement that, here is my list of some personal favorites that I would like to eventually see on the service as well.

My Verdict on the 3DS Game Case

image

I officially find myself enjoying both the thinner 3DS games and even the way many of the games keep to a similar design scheme in reguards to the square image present on the spine on the case and overall simplicity of main case layout. This may be my favorite game case, even with the holes.

Ever Wanted to Know What the Inside of 3DS Case Looked Like?

BAM!

I must say it doesn’t look that bad. It is actually quite pleasant looking. Only time will tell if these case will feel like flimsy garbage.

EDIT: After seeing the brilliant use of the eco holes for Nintendogs I have a new hope.
