Skyward Sword: 3 Reasons Why It's Worth Buying The Latest Legend Of Zelda Remake
In Nintendo's latest direct held on February 17, 2021, the company announced The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD remake. Just like any big announcement, fans spewed out their opinions onto social media in droves. The Legend Of Zelda fans on social media have taken sides—arguing to answer the same question, is Skyward Sword worth buying or not worth buying? Having played through the game on the Wii, my opinion is that it is worth buying on the Switch. I have three spoiler-free reasons why I think you should buy The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD remake.
What are the changes made in Ocarina of Time's Master Quest?
I want to start this off by saying I am technically only a casual gamer, in that I do not play very many games and I can go long periods not playing anything at all. That being said, the games that I do play and enjoy, I play A LOT and replay many times. The series of games that certainly holds the number one spot in my heart is The Legend of Zelda. I believe I have played every 3D Zelda game that has come out and I can say with certainty that Ocarina of Time is the game that sparked my love of video games as well as the Role Playing Game genre.
It's a Me, Mario! I'm A 31!
31 years ago today, Super Mario Brothers 3 was released in North America. Being the third installment in the series, this 2-D platformer had a lot to live up to, and it did just that splendidly. But what exactly made this game so great?
It’s a hot summer night in the year 2000. Mom and I just finished cleaning up dinner and I ask her if I can ride my bike up to the corner store like I do every Friday evening. She slips me a $5 bill from her wallet and tells me to be safe, make sure I look both ways before crossing the street. I give her a kiss goodbye and run out to the back shed to pull out my bright yellow mountain bike.
The Four Fantastic Mario & Luigi Co-op Games Nintendo Needs
The era of the couch co-op game has been upon us for a while. It's not like the idea is new, but in recent years couch co-op games have dominated the multiplayer market, those and battle royale games. Franchises like Kirby and Donkey Kong have featured couch co-op since their early days. More recently the Super Mario 3D games have featured 4-player simultaneous co-op, Kirby has evolved into the 4-player landscape as well, and even the Legend of Zelda franchise has expanded into multiplayer formats, albeit not always local. But it's about time that Mario and Luigi branch out into some new couch gameplay experiences. With that in mind, here are four Mario, Luigi and Co. games that we need in the near future.
The Five Epic Spin-Offs We Want from Nintendo IPs
Nintendo is no stranger to placing their characters in bizarre situations. From golf to board games, tennis to go-karts, and soccer to an all-or-nothing brawl, Mario and friends have found themselves in uncountable spin-offs. But the Mario brand isn't the only IP to broaden its horizons, though it does have the broadest. Indeed, Link and other Hyrule natives have taken to hack-and-slash combat a la Dynasty Warriors; the Star Fox crew have taken to the skies in full on tactical combat; and space marines from the Metroid universe had the pleasure of going on four person space co-op missions. So, why not Nintendo? Why not expand into some other new frontiers?
How the 'Boktai' Series Lost Its Identity
One of my favorite video games of all time is Boktai for the Game Boy Advance. Now make no mistake the Boktai, I am referring to is the original game in the series Boktai: The Sun is in Your Hand. While I still enjoy the sequels, I believe they stray too far from the original to deliver a satisfying follow-up. So, to explain where I feel the Boktai series went wrong, I will recount what changed throughout the series.
The Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild
Enjoy your childhood character most realistically. Today I want to express my feeling about playing a game I called Nintendo’s flagship title that raises the bar and grabs many awards including the game of the year.
Byleth Should Have Been a Student
About a year ago, one of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC fighters revealed to join the game was Byleth, the main avatar character of the latest Fire Emblem game, Three Houses.
What Happened to the 'Mega Man' Series?
With its long history and many games, the Mega Man series may at first appear to be a wildly successful franchise up there with Mario and Sonic. However, this isn't true of the Mega Man series as a whole with, only a few games selling more than one million copies worldwide. This fact made me wonder how the Mega Man series could be so well known but rarely be the success we would expect from a long-running franchise.
How to Check Play Time on Nintendo Switch?
Nintendo Switch is one of the primary sources of entertainment developed especially for gamers by Nintendo. It’s like a standard tablet that can also be used as a portable device. It has wireless JoyCon controllers with traditional buttons and analog sticks that make it more convenient for users.
Revised Game & Watch
For anyone who has a super Mario fan and dwells in nostalgia, would widely appreciate a marvelous resurrection of a once cheap portable gaming device that Nintendo had easily accessible on the market 40 years ago. It was hard yet tempting for me not to purchase this rare item Nintendo was marketing for novelty reasons. While at Walmart, while I was originally planning to purchase another accessory, I stumbled upon the game and watch that several people a month earlier were trying to order online.
