Get if your Nintendo 3DS and Wii U this April 17!

The Return of Mega Man

It hurts to see you this way, Mega Man.
Hey there.  See that above comic strip?  That comic strip hit home when I first saw it.  I damn near teared up.  For those of you that do not get the reference, that's Mario in the limo calling Masahiro Sukarai, the designer of the Super Smash Bros. franchise, to ask for a favor to help out an old friend.  It's one touching comic.  Subtle, yet powerful.  Also, it's very appropriate.  Mega Man was one of those NES titles that helped launch Nintendo into the video game world.  I've played all of the the Mega Man games on the early Nintendo platforms.  They were awesome, they were engaging, and most of all, they I felt a sense of pride when completing the games.  For whatever reason, Capcom and Mega Man parted ways with Nintendo and I strongly believe that was a huge mistake on Capcom's part.  Mega Man had games, such as Mega Man Legends, but they weren't the same.  Soon, before you knew it... the Blue Bomber was forgotten.  Left on the way side.  That is... until now.

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D at the Los Angeles Zoo Nintendo Event

Oh yeah!  I'm there for the event!!!
Hey there.  Last weekend was Memorial Day weekend and it was a time of remembrance.  Many of us spent the day out with our families and gave thanks to those brave men and women of the United States Military that gave everything they had to protect the freedoms that this great nation believes in. Many of us celebrated by enjoying that freedom by enjoying it with our families.  I spent Memorial Day weekend with my family as well.  But I also spent it with Nintendo.  How so?  Well, this Memorial Day weekend, the great people at Nintendo offered my family and I a press pass to enjoy the LA Zoo AND meet Donkey Kong!  How awesome is that?!

What I'm Playing... Pushmo

Hey there.  This weekend, I had the pleasure of hanging out with Donkey Kong at the LA Zoo.  I haven't had a chance to post about it just yet, but that post should go live within the next day or so.  While there, I got to play Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D for the Nintendo 3DS.  It's a great game, by the way, but while I was playing, it got me thinking of some of the other titles that I have on the 3DS.  Specifically, titles that I have received from the Nintendo eShop.  That place is a gold mine for great games!  The lastest one that I received?  Pushmo!!!!

Donkey Kong Country Invades the LA Zoo and Botanical Gardens this Memorial Day Weekend

Hey there!  Who has any plans for this Memorial Day Weekend?  Many of us will be firing up the grill and having outdoor BBQ and others will venture off to the beach or other main attraction.  It's almost as if Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial start of Summer.  My plans for this weekend is to take the family to the LA Zoo!  It's been awhile since we last visited the zoo so I think it'll be a great time to check it out.  Our young one is now 3 so he's old enough to enjoy checking out the animals.  Who knows, maybe he'll enjoy spotting lions, snakes, alligatots, Donkey Kong.  Wait... What?!?!  DONKEY KONG?!  YUP!!!  This Memorial Day weekend, Nintendo has partnered up with the LA Zoo & Botanical Gardens to host an event!  How awesome is that?!  The event is taking place in the Campo Gorilla Reserve to commemorate the launch of Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D on the Nintendo 3DS on May 24th, 2013.

What I'm Playing... Kersploosh!

Hey there.  Do you member a time when it fun to toss a rock?  Whether it be trying to knock over a tin can or trying to get it to skip across water, as a child, the most mundane of objects could become an afternoon of fun.  That is the first thought that came to my head to moment I started playing Kersploosh!, on the Nintendo 3DS.  The good people at Nintendo provided me a copy of the game and I am thankful that they did.  The family and I have been taking turns trying to 1 up each others times, and even though there are many big name downloads on the Nintendo eShop, Kersploosh! is one of those rare gems that the whole family can enjoy together.  Well, let's get into it, shall we?

What I'm Playing... Mutant Mudds

Hey there.  You know, I love playing on the Nintendo 3DS.  It's an extremely convenient way to get my gaming on when I'm on the go or when I don't have too much time on my hands.  But you know what the absolute best part about it?  Some of the games made for the 3DS are short, challenging, and fun.  And that is where Mutant Mudds falls in.  Our good friends at Nintendo were kind enough to provide a copy of the game to me to check out.  Like with Mighty Switch Force, Mutant Mudds is simple to pick up and play but offers a unique challenge as well as a moderately high replay value.  So let's get to it!  Let's take a look at the game, Mutant Mudds.

What I'm Playing... Mighty Switch Force

Hey there.  So what has Metallman's thumbs and fingers busy these past few weeks?  Mighty Switch Force by WayForward Technologies for the Nintendo 3DS!  Our good friends at Nintendo provided me with a copy of this great action/puzzle game I haven't been able to put it down.  From what I have been told, there are other Switch Force games out there but this is my first time playing any game in the series and I would like to think that it's one of the best.  So let's take a look at the game, Mighty Switch Force.

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon for the 3DS in Stores on March 24, 2013

In stores March 24th, 2013
Hey there. We are all familiar with the many of adventures of Mario and Luigi, but are you guys familiar with adventures of Luigi?  Luigi's Mansion is a great game for Nintendo's Gamecube and it allowed the player to control Luigi as he explored a haunted mansion, fought ghosts, and save his brother Mario.  It was a pretty cool game and the only negative thing that I can say about the game is that the game was too short.  Well, for those of us that was left wanting more, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, will be released this March, exclusively  for the Nintendo 3DS!
