Super Legend of the Fire Red Air Ride Bros.


     If you could only have Link, Mario,Pikachu or Kirby in the next Super Smash, who would you choose?  Well, those might not be the decisions, but Nintendo is gonna' have to crack a few eggs to make the holy omelet they're cooking. They have removed Subspace Emissiary because one of the scenes was released on the internet. With the removal of Toon Link, and the undeniable, yet not confirmed deletion of Lucario, Wolf, Ike, and Solid Snake, and the scary thought that they haven't confirmed the commonly appearing Zelda, Peach, Jigglypuff, and Ness, most are concerned if Nintendo is on the right track. I, for one, don't really like the main characters.I love my Zelda. I like Ness, Peach, Ice Climbers, R.O.B(shocker), Meta Knight, Game & Watch and Ike. I have preferences. I love Kirby and F-Zero stages, I never use any mode but stock, and I enjoy killing Squirtle, as I really,really, really despise Squirtle. Will what I want be in the next SSB? Will I be one of the cracked eggs? Probably so. All you can do is hope and pray that your favorites make it in.

New Super Mario Bros. U-Something to Jump For or a Reason to Leave Your Yoshi Saddle in the Original

     When I played New Super Mario Bros. Wii for the first time, the only true Mario game I've played, it struck me as magical. I could play with my little brother, or my best friend, and still have the time to pick them up near the end and chuck them down a canyon. I could saddle up a Yoshi without squirting juice all over Piantas(Super Mario Sunshine reference:D), and eat apples and save my friends from certain doom by keeping them in my mouth pouch. So I had to trade it in eventually, but it helped get my New Super Mario Bros. U.When the game reeled me in, it was hypnotic, but frustrating. Even the 1st level was ridiculously hard for me, even with the help of the booster, someone who can make platforms for Mario and his pals to jump on. If I was rating this for just how long and hard I worked to wield a baby yoshi who walked off a cliff, this game would be considered electronic limbo... but I'm not rating it like that. Instead, I'll give it some credit for a hook and sinker, the fact that boost mode has kept me interested, and the fact my siblings love it. My largest issue is you need certain updates to play this game, and instead of Nintendo adding the update to another one, you have to update at least three times, or some doors will lead to an error message.
     Overall, I had a lot of fun. It's just not striking me the same way that the original did. Mario is beginning to fade into obscurity, and honestly is mooching off his own spin-off series(which there are way too many of). Maybe a new Super Mario Sunshine, or a Wii U Strikers could save the day, if they can pull it off, but for the time being, he's practically dead.

Olimar is Dead? Or is he just really, really slow?

     So, Olimar isn't the protagonist of Pikmin 3, I know, but I didn't know the name of any of the new adventurers, and my sadness destroyed my motivation to find out. Nintendo has been holding back for a while, and I'm getting angry. If it takes any longer, then they won't get any buyers, because Pokemon is coming out in October. Basically, Pikmin was supposed to come out in the launch window of the Wii U, but Nintendo was pressed for time, so they sent it all the way to June. Then, in order to make people even more irritated, they sent it to August 4th. Hopefully, they won't push the date any farther. Other games I'm looking forward to:Super Mario 3D World, Pokemon X/Y, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS, Legend of Zelda Wii U Title, and the Sonic title.
