Platformers have always been my jam. To me there is nothing quite like running and jumping through a game. When your first memories are of playing Super Mario Bros. this makes complete sense. As I get older and I game less, the Puzzle Platformer has gained a special place in my heart. They are easier to pick and play in shorter bursts. I also like the emphasis on thinking over speed. The Puzzle Platformer genre is not an overly prevalent one but this Spring, Nintendo blessed us with two solid entries available in the eShop. Both games kept me occupied on the weekends and up late at night until they were completed to my satisfaction. Continue reading

I have never played a main series Final Fantasy game. I have tried Final Fantasy VII because of all the hype but I couldn’t get into it. I have however beat every single Crystal Chronicles game, and I have beat 4 Warriors of Light. When I was younger I didn’t understand RPG’s so I never played them and by the time I became interested in them I was playing Nintendo 64 (the point in which Nintendo stopped getting so many great RPG’s). Even without playing many Final Fantasy games, the series still has nudged a special place in my heart. I like a lot of the characters and enemies in Final Fantasy and the music is always good, so when a highly stylized rhythm game based on Final Fantasy comes out I can’t pass that up. Continue reading

This is the perfect video to show you the garbage that still exists in this otherwise awesome game. I’ve played over 60 hours of Mario Kart 7 so far and still, every online match I play there’s always someone repeatedly picking this level to cheat. It’s a shame because the lap you skip is a lot of fun but if you don’t cheat you’ll finish dead last every time and lose points. I hope that Nintendo fixes this issue soon. I also hope they don’t say anything either so all the cheaters lose a few matches before they figure it out.
Not much has been announced so far but we do know that it’s going to be a Nintendo DS game not 3ds. The strange thing is instead of releasing a new color like usual, (platinum, emerald, yellow) Nintendo is releasing secondary versions of each color. Personally I would have preferred the next game in the series at least have a 3ds version as well not just be backwards compatible. Either way though I’m always excited for new Pokemon games and hopefully this installment will take the best Pokemon game engine so far and perfect it.
I want to apologize to all our listeners for our show taking a two month break. It wasn’t planned and unfortunately, couldn’t be helped. As always, thank you so much for continuing to listen. There were many games to discuss in this episode and felt good after a slow year. One of the games we discussed was Mario Kart 7 and the creation of the Wii Are Fanboys community. Above is the search code for our community. If you would like to download the show click HERE and I hope to race all of you soon.
