Get in the Halloween spirit with some creepy Nintendo tunes!

Unknown.jpeg

If there’s one thing Nintendo consistently does right in their video games, it’s the sound tracks. Nintendo games have the best music.

And since the music covers a variety of feelings, themes, locations and enemies, there’s plenty of creepy tunes to go around that are perfectly fitting for Halloween. Continue reading “Get in the Halloween spirit with some creepy Nintendo tunes!”

Paper Mario Partners: Ranked

Unknown.jpeg
I had a much harder time ranking the partners from Paper Mario 64 than I did ranking them for The Thousand Year Door. I mean, wow, it was a struggle. Their personalities don’t feel as strongly defined as the partners from TTYD and they don’t feel quite as unique. They make for very likable and enjoyable partners, but hard to place on a favorite to non-favorite spectrum.

Paper Mario TTYD Badges: Ranked

Unknown.jpeg
Once I sat down to make the Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door most useful badges list, I remembered that a lot of the badges repeat between TTYD and the first game. That fact made this list a lot shorter because I decided to only include badges that are either available in TTYD or that are available in both games but I only use them in TTYD.

The badge system in the first two Paper Mario games is one of my favorite parts of the games. A player’s badge setup basically determines how difficult or easily they are able to progress through the games. And different badge combinations can showcase what a player feels is the most important aspect of Mario’s abilities, whether it’s focusing on equipping defense badges or power-increasing badges or a mixture of the two.

Pokemon Sun and Moon evolutions revealed!


Evolutions for Pokemon Sun and Moon’s three starters — grass/flying owl Rowlet, fire cat Litten and water-type seal Popplio — were revealed on Tuesday. And I think they’re all pretty good; none of them are that radically changed but also none of them are completely hideous. Good stuff! So let’s get into the descriptions!

Paper Mario Retrospective


What better time is there to do some retrospective posts on older Paper Mario games than in the lea up to the release of Paper Mario: Color Splash this Friday?

Paper Mario is hands down my favorite video game. It was the first game that I remember seeing commercials for and being super excited to buy. It’s also the first game I bought with my own money when I was younger. 

Paper Mario and Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door both have so much charm, great music and awesome characters. They’re both extremely enjoyable games to experience over and over again. 

From partners to badges to locations to items, there’s not any part of these two games that are truly unlikable to me. 

And so, in the coming posts over the next two days, I’ll be ranking my favorite partners and chapters, the best recipes and badges as well as posts about Luigi’s adventure in TTYD and other things. 

(The posts will only be about the first two Paper Mario games. I’ve only played Super Paper Mario once and I never actually beat it and I’ve never played Sticker Star. So I’m not nearly knowledgable enough to talk about either of those.)
