Title: NSMB
Posted: July 20, 2006 (02:59 PM)
I purchased a brand new DS Lite recently, along with New Super Mario Bros. I completed it (with every star coin spent) a week ago or so, and my main impression of the game is that it's good, but WAY too easy. They made green mushrooms too easy to get: green mushroom houses, giant mushroom bonus, red coins bonus, and others. The new power-up scheme (getting the flower as Mario turns you into Fire Mario; being hit as Fire Mario degrades him into Super Mario) didn't help, either.

I also managed to find all the alternative routes and star coins (except one) without consulting guides, which is either: a) good, since I could only find half of the secret routes in SMW, and I'm getting better at discovering them; or b) bad, since I could only find half of the secret routes in SMW, and they made them easier to find on purpose.

Anyway, it's a good game. I would probably give it a 8/10 if I were to review it. But I won't.

After playing Cold Shadow in its entirety, it would seem to me that Maui Mallard was created only for the simple purpose of fooling us Donald Duck fans into playing the game. Oh, Disney, you and your devilish schemes! Thatís right: what you see in the cover art and in-game screenshots is not Donald, but actually Maui Mallard! And what are the differences between Donald and Maui? Well, save for the lack of a red bowtie and Fauntleroy sailor hat, none.

Game: Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals (SNES)
Posted: January 08, 2006 (03:17 PM)
Lufia II is extremely underrated. It never got much attention and developed only a minor, almost insignificant group of Internet followers. While the oblivious cognoscenti of SNES videogames praise games like Chrono Trigger and FFVI as life-altering trips, Lufia is pretty much ignored. Why? Maybe because it was released too late. Maybe its simplicity didnít satisfy most fans, most of whom were used to very complex plots. We could argue this all day but we just canít run away from t...
