I watched Nintendo Direct yesterday, my first one in awhile. I like the Nintendo Direct format but I prefer the normal format as oppose to the more special ones they’ve been doing recently on Hyrule Warriors and Smash Bros and such. Overall, I think the presentation was okay, with little to get me excited about but there are a couple of things I would like to talk about, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D and Splatoon.

I was never a big fan of the NES style of games. Back in the day, even though I liked a lot of NES games, I rarely look back with fondness at the difficulty, primitive graphics, and sometimes cryptic game mechanics. I know, I know, it’s sacrilegious for a gamer to say that, especially for someone like me whose first console was the NES. However, when a game like Shovel Knight is released, it reminds me what fans of the console are talking about. Shovel Knight is arguably the best retro title to be released in recent memory and is a fine example of why gameplay always outshines presentation.
I don’t think Nintendo understands what the word “New” means.
I don’t know why today of all days has inspired me to write a journal entry but here we are. I woke up late, almost noon. It’s been nice sleeping in lately as I had a busy week, a busy Tuesday really, I’m trying to recover from. After checking my email, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, Vine, and Feedly accounts (probably Google+ too), I watch a couple of YouTube videos.

I just wanted to write something though. No plans, no long winded editorial on Nintendo or my favorite game at the moment, no sharing links or videos, just me blabbering. The only guideline I have is to talk about video games only. Continue reading “Man, it has been some time since I did just a blog!”
I decided to post my blog about the Wii U on Gaming Precision and the article is getting a lot of comments which is good for Gaming Precision. Continue reading “Journal: The Blog that Continues to Grow”
This year was the year I finally bought a Nintendo 3DS. Back in April, I went to my local Walmart and bought a blue 3DS XL with three games. Now the year is coming to an end and while at first I didn’t use my 3DS that much, I’m now in love with my 3DS. The games I’ve played has made me hopeful for the handheld’s library. I played exactly 13 games this year, some to completion and some not. So I thought I would talk about them. Continue reading “Countdown: My 13 3DS Games of 2013”
Man did I play a lot of games this past week. 15 to be exact! I played more Pokémon X, mostly just leveling, super training and petting my Pokémon. My Bulbasaur evolved into an Ivysaur so yay. I tried to play more Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver but I’m stuck again so I didn’t get far. I popped in Injustice: Gods Among Us for some online matches and I went through the story mode with Ares. I popped in Prince of Persia HD Trilogy and played more of Sands of Time. I’m around 3/4 of the way through the game. I gave Final Fantasy XIII a try again and made some progress with doing the Cie’th Stones or whatever they’re called. I’ve completed three of them, which is better than none so that’s progress at least. Not very fun, though. Continue reading “My Gaming Landscape [October 29, 2013]”
This is going to be quick as I didn’t play very many games this past week simply because I was busy with work and work took extra long due to me still being a little sick. I played a little bit of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of TIme 3D but not much. It was mostly me finding heart pieces and gold skulltula and going through the Lost Woods. Seriously, over the week I played about two hours. Not much at all.
