Super Smash Bros. Melee

Super Smash Bros. Melee is a platforming tournament fighter for the GameCube and is the second game in the Super Smash Bros. series. As such, I’m assuming that you’ve either read my review of Super Smash Bros. or already have previous knowledge of such. Also keep in mind that I haven’t played the game in a few years now, but I did play quite a lot of it. So excuse me if I miss a few details here and there. So if you’re still with me then let’s get this party ball rollin’! Continue reading “Super Smash Bros. Melee”

Super Smash Bros.

Super Smash Bros. is a platforming tournament fighter for the Nintendo 64. Have you ever wondered what it’d be like to see your favorite Nintendo characters duke it out? Who would win in a fight between Mario and Link? Could Pikachu defeat Donkey Kong? What if Kirby pissed off Samus? Instead of just arguing about it, now you can play it out for yourself in Super Smash Bros.! Continue reading “Super Smash Bros.”

Super Mario 64

Super Mario 64 is a 3D platformer for the Nintendo 64. Princess Peach invites Mario over to her castle to have some cake. Upon his arrival, Mario is informed that Bowser has kidnapped the princess and stolen the power stars, trapping everyone within the castle walls and entrusting the power stars to his minions. It’s up to Mario to jump into various paintings to enter the many worlds within the castle, recover the stars to unlock the doors, defeat Bowser, and save Princess Peach.

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam is a crossover role-playing game of the Mario & Luigi series and Paper Mario series for the Nintendo 3DS. I’d like to acknowledge upfront that while I have played Paper Mario and most of Super Paper Mario, I’ve not played any of the Mario & Luigi games so my viewpoint might be considerably different than long-time fans of both. Now the story of this game is rather simple, but let me try to explain it so that it makes sense. Basically, Luigi (from the Mario & Luigi universe) stumbles across a magical book that contains the Paper Mario universe and accidentally knocks it open. This unleashes many of the Paper Mario universe’s inhabitants to spread across the land. You can find normal and paper versions of many characters, including Peach, Bowser, and even Mario! The like-minded character clones team up to make the most of the situation. The Bowsers kidnap the Peaches and plan to take over the Mario & Luigi world while the Bowser Juniors work to keep the book safe to ensure they never have to part with one another. So it’s up to Mario, Luigi, and Paper Mario to team up and take down all the baddies. Like I said, it’s a simple plot. Continue reading “Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam”

Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty’s Revenge

Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty’s Revenge is an isometric platformer collect-a-thon for the Game Boy Advance. This game was released after Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie on the Nintendo 64, so I’m going to assume you’re up to speed on the previous two games from personal experience or perhaps from checking out my other reviews. While it was released after these two games, it actually takes place between them a few months after the events of Banjo-Kazooie. Continue reading “Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty’s Revenge”
