Nintendo’s masterpiece

Nintendo’s masterpiece

The latest Super Mario, might be the greatest game ever made, if you believe the hype. The game is receiving average reviews anywhere from 9/10 to 10’s from most media outlets.

We picked it up, cause, who can resist a little italian plumber? We checked it out for about 2 hours last night an I agree with the ratings given. The music alone beats 90% of the games out there. The rest beats 99%. The fact that someone else can join in and help you out is much more fun than you’d think.

One of the best review quotes I read last week (but will have to paraphrase as I can’t find it again) said…

“This new game makes you angry, angry that you’ve been subjected to crappy games for the past 10 years and paid more for them (SMG is 50$), seemingly that developers haven’t even tried in comparison. This game shows you what a fun video game is meant to be.”

Wii lightsaber

Wii lightsaber

For all us Wii/Nintendo nerds out there… The killer app for the Wii? You know it will never be as fun as you hope but…

“… Wii remote lightsaber dueling. Since the day that the Revolution was first announced, the dream of wielding the remote like a lightsaber has been a common thread connecting gamers across the world. And now, apparently, that dream will finally come true. LucasArts and Travellers Tales have announced that Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga will ship with motion control lightsaber combat…. allowing players to battle with thrusts and slices of the Remote.”
