I Choose Chao! [Retro Revival #2]

Okay, so I am a huge Sonic fan. I’ve been playing Sonic games ever since I was a little kid. I grew up on Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, and played it so much now where I’ve almost 100%ed the game entirely. I love SA2B, and despite the criticism it receives for the treasure-hunting and shooting stages,it is still one of my favorite games of all time. But there’s one mode in it I wish they would bring back (and I’m still hoping they will), and that is the Chao Gardens. Continue reading

Did you ever play Pokemon Snap as a kid? If so, you probably remember how amazing the game was, despite its out-of-left-field concept.

Direct Hit! [SS Opinions #3]

A few days ago, Nintendo released a new Nintendo Direct video announcing a bunch of surprises for the holidays and early 2014.  Some were a bit intriguing, but a few captured my attention more than others.  I have to say the biggest surprise, hands down, was the Legend of Zelda-Dynasty Warriors crossover title Hyrule Warriors, which looks like a great game that should prove to be a popular one.  But my favorite announcement was the introduction video for Rosalina in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U / 3DS.
