So, last weekend me and my boyfriend felt like playing something together and started up Mario Party for the N64 for some cozy time in the sofa. Of course I won our round.
It is a really nice game to play, with all the fun little quirks and mini games. You can choose between some of the characters from the Mario franchise. From Peach, Luigi and Yoshi to Wario, Donkey Kong and Mario himself.
It’s like a board game, where your character is a pawn that moves around. You roll the die and your character moves. Along the way, you can end up on different spaces, some good and others are bad. Each round you’ll get to play a mini game. Mini games can be both good and bad depending on how you do. You lose or earn money from each one and there are quite a few.
The boards that you play on are very different from each other. Most are colorful and filled with fun stuff. Each board have a different take on how you’ll play it.
For example on one map, you can plant flowers that steal stars from the other players and on another you can pay roadblocks to force other players to pay way more just to get by them.
The goal of the game is to collect as many stars as you can, the one with the most stars in the end wins. You can buy stars, steal stars and also win stars in the end depending on which awards you get. For example, who had made the most coins in mini games and such.
In the end, it is a well worth game to play with friends. If you haven’t tried it already, you really should.
So, instead of doing something DIY for once, the other week I bought this awesome Witcher shirt from Grindstore. The colors and motif really spoke to me. Not only is the game damn great, the shirt is really epic looking. The quality is way better than I thought it would be and the shipping didn’t take to long. I’ll absolutely order more from that store in the future.
So, this weekend me and my boyfriend played Pilotwings. It is surprisingly fun for a flight simulator and a game well worth trying as it’s strangely addictive.
The point of the game is that you’re training to gain licenses to fly. You get a couple of objectives to do, and you’re expected to reach a certain score to continue. Each level of the licenses adds more difficulty and different obstacles to get past.
I have to say that the hang gliding and skydiving is the trickiest to master, and the rocketbelt is the most fun to do.
Besides the objectives, the game is rather open for experimentation. You can fly wherever for example, at least until your fuel runs out (which takes a little while). It’s fun to explore when you’ve mastered all levels already.
Overall, it’s a short game but a really fun one. It’s one of those games that you should try at least once.
So, just saw the new trailer for ESO: Morrowind and the pre content that you can get. A Warden costume for the new Warden class and a Dwarven War Dog, I mean really?
Couldn’t they come up with anything else? Like a druid for example? Who aren’t thinking of Dragon Age with the Wardens? Is it just me?
I’ll absolutely try it however cause, you know, Morrowind. But the creativity sure runs loooow nowadays.
So, after a lot of trial and error, and maybe a few curse words, me and my boyfriend beat F-Zero. It is a damn intense game and one I really enjoyed. One thing that sticks out the most is the music, damn that’s catchy.
F-Zero is a racing game set in the future where bumper cars are racing above huge cities, while taking damage whenever they hit the edges, the other cars or other obstacles. The walls in particular are so annoying and can kill you in a heartbeat if you’re unlucky. Especially as you bump to oblivion and back once you hit something, like you’re in a pinball game.
Also, it’s a shame that it doesn’t have a two player mode. That would have made it all way more fun to play than it already is.
All in all, it is definitely a game to at least try once. I’ll absolutely play it again.
So, this weekend me and my boyfriend played Punch-out!! We thought we would see if we could be able to beat Mike Tyson. However, what we didn’t realized before we went up against the last opponent, was that the version we played didn’t have Tyson to begin with. We faced Mr. Dream, the sprite that they had edited in there instead of Tyson when the license to use him expired (and they didn’t wanna renew).
So this is Mr. Dream, apparently…
The game is rather cool, with a nice difficulty (when you figure it out) and fun sprites. It really takes a little while to get the hang on how to beat each opponent, they all have their own little hints and kinks to take down. It’s just a matter of knock down or be knocked down. A few of the opponents gave us quite a challenge. Mr. Sandman and Bald Bull #2 must have been the hardest, though Mr. Sandman is the harder of the two. I should count Mike Tyson/Mr. Dream into this as well as we barely landed any hits, let alone took him down. We didn’t try for to long, but damn he was hard.
Overall it is a game worth playing and a perfect weekend challenge. If you haven’t tried it already, you really should.
