In honor of the release of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for Wii U at the end of this week, I thought I’d write a blog about my top five favorite Donkey Kong games. How high can you get? It’s on like Don…er, a stubborn monkey!
Hey there! G.P. the GamerPuppet here! A new 3DS role-playing game just came out in the US: Bravely Default from Square-Enix, and Cary just got the Collector’s Edition of it. So I’m going to unbox it for you and see what’s all in it. Let’s check it out!
You know when you were in Elementary School and you had to give out those little perforated card Valentines with cartoon characters on them to everyone in your class? Well, they still do those. Every time I pass by the Valentine aisle, it’s always interesting what kid properties are deemed popular enough to make into Valentines. But I’m also surprised that we don’t see that many video game characters made into Valentines like that. Maybe the licensing fees for video game characters like Mario and Sonic are too expensive? Or maybe kids just don’t like video games as much as I think they do? Nah, it’s gotta be the licensing fees. But recently I saw these at the store so I had to write about them: Skylanders Valentines.
Here’s something I found amusing at the grocery store the other day: Candy Crush Fruit Snacks! That just tells you how popular that match-three puzzle game is! I think they’re made by the same folks who did Angry Birds fruit snacks. They taste the same and they even advertise them the same. They boast that they’re gluten free for instance (but they aren’t a wheat-type product, so of course they’re gluten free, duh). The snacks are shaped like the various things you match in Candy Crush. I don’t know if it’s just me, but fruit snacks don’t taste as good as they used to. Click here to see a bigger picture of the box. What video games would you like to see fruit snacks of? I don’t know why they haven’t made Pac-Man fruit snacks yet. You’d think that would be a perfect fit.
Next weekend on Saturday, January 18, I’m helping host a Pokemon Tournament with the North Dallas/Plano, TX StreetPass Meetup group at the GameStop we usually go to. So if you’re in the area and are interested, come on down and bring your 3DS and Pokemon X/Y games! Click here for more info.
Happy New Year everyone! At this time of year I like to write about what games I’m looking forward to playing and reviewing in 2014. Now I know there will still be lots of games announced as the year goes on, but these are what popped into my head at the time.
At my cubicle at work, I like to hang up a wall calendar that I usually get at Christmas. The past two years I’ve gotten Muppet calendars, so I wanted something different this year. So this time I got a Zelda calendar! Click here to take a look.
WWE 2K14 is a wrestling video game celebrating 30 years of Wrestlemania featuring Superstars and Divas from three decades. And now you can celebrate, too, with the WWE 2K14 strategy guide; featuring moves for all the wrestlers, and all the events you can participate in.
As I always like to do this time of the year, here’s a list of my most favorite games of 2013. Now, keep in mind that this list is my personal preferences ONLY. No outside influences or voters, just my opinion. Plus, I can’t play ALL the games out there, so if your favorites are missing, don’t be too mad at me! I can only do so much. OK, with that out of the way, let’s take a look at the winners!
If you’re a big fan of the long-running Pokemon anime, and you want to be the very best, the best that ever was, then you’ve got to check out this new hardcover book. It covers everything you ever wanted to know about the characters, Pokemon, battles, and adventures in the book’s more than 200 pages! Now, keep in mind that this book is just about the anime cartoon show. It doesn’t have anything about the games in it. But it’s still a high quality piece of work, so let’s take a look inside!
