Life is getting real now that I’m about to graduate from my University with a B.A. in Television, Film, and Media so I need to prioritize my life goals and take a bit of time off from Cynosure Gaming. I’ve spent countless hours since the early days of June 2015 and they continued until now. I have been lucky enough to find and gather easily the best people on the internet to take care of my baby while my time is consumed with job applications that could eventually lead to my career. Thank you to those who have taken the time to read anything we’ve posted. Now starts a new era under the leadership of Camron, good luck buddy and here are my top 100 games of all time!
Tag: Wii U
Nintendo’s latest console, the Switch, released today worldwide and I’ve been having a blast with it. The Switch’s launch lineup didn’t have many offerings from triple A developers, but that didn’t stop me from grabbing a few games. Obviously let’s start my impression pieces with what might be the Switch’s best game already, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
The Nintendo Switch releases this Friday and I’m excited to get my hands on it and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Before I go forward with the Switch, I will first pay my respects to the console that preceded it: the Wii U. The Wii U had a tough lifespan starting with its confusing introduction a few years back at E3 and its lack of third party support, but through it all the console managed to give us a great lineup of exclusive titles. Despite the console being out of production for the past month or two, everyone should know that the Wii U had hard hitting titles in its defense that you couldn’t play anywhere else. So to kick off CSG’s Nintendo/Zelda week I present to you my top 10 Wii U games.
Japan is under attack by mirages seeking idol’s performa to conquer the real world and the world of Fire Emblem. If none of that makes sense, then strap on for a wacky absurd story involving a bunch of JRPG tropes with fun gameplay mechanics that will make you want more by the time the end credits finish rolling.
Paper Mario Color Splash released last Friday and I finally got around to playing the first few hours of the game. Does the game deserve the early hate it received or am I finally going to enjoy my first Paper Mario experience? Read on for my impressions on what might be the most charming game I’ve played all year.
The year is 1990 and Nintendo’s latest home console, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, was booming with new IP’s and sequels to beloved franchises from the NES era. F-Zero, one of these new Nintendo IP’s, developed by the now legendary Nintendo EAD and overlooked by Shigeru Miyamoto, father of most things Nintendo, showcased the power of the SNES with fast-paced racing that looked like nothing else at the time.
As I watched this year’s E3 press conferences from the comfort of my room I kept thinking to myself “where are all the good games to look forward to?” This year seemed a bit dry, especially with all the leaks that occurred the week prior to E3. I wont fault the leaks for the lack of new games but eventually I started to notice more games during the final press conference. Call me a Sony fanboy if you will, but I think they out did every other conference. Sure, some of the previous conference had some good stuff but hardly any of those games catered to my preferences. Well off to my list. These are the games I’m looking forward to the most that were showcased at E3 2016 (minus Final Fantasy XV as it’s almost launching).
