Animal Crossing Updates

For a while, I hadn't been playing Animal Crossing. But then my sisters each got the game and drug me back into it. I learned a lot over time. Like, no fruit is really the most expensive fruit, other than Perfect fruits. It all depends on the foreign fruits of your personal town.
Anyhoo, I've been playing a lot and I got a spotpass notification on the game so I checked the game for new update data and sure enough I could update the game. So I updated and started playing again. Thats when I got this letter in the virtual mail from Nintendo:


Its too bad that I don't pass by too many Nintendo Zones, But at least the rest of the world gets to enjoy this interesting and kinda' cool promo from Nintendo. I think this promo was started primarily because of the Club Nintendo SHUT DOWN Announcement.
I hope someday, Nintendo brings Sledding into Animal Crossing New Leaf. 
That would be Awesomtacular!

Mario made the news, Frankenmuth MI


Frankenmuth MI had a Sculpture contest for their Winter festival .
Someone made a very large Mario out of Snow for a contest in Frankenmuth Michigan. Its not the most accurate Mario and looks kinda flat-like. Its very square and its mustache isn't poofy at all. But you can see that the person or persons who made it really liked Mario and tried their hardest to make a big version of the worlds most popular plumber for the Winter festival. My parents say they didn't see Mario there when they were in Frankenmuth, but out of all they did see, Mario is clearly the winner. :D

Club Nintendo NO MORE

Please read this or visit the official article here.

Club Nintendo is no more.

It seems that Nintendo has decided to do away with Club Nintendo and open up a new loyalty program. This may be interesting but its almost sad. For me, I'm almost Platinum for 3 years in a row. I messed up one year and had to start over but this year would be my third if Club Nintendo wouldn't be discontinued on July 1st. Normally July is when they start a NEW Nintendo year for Club Nintendo. But this year looks to be different. Nobody knows what Nintendo has in store for their new loyalty program. But it looks like its never going to be the same again.
As a reward for many years of loyalty however, Nintendo will distribute special prizes for loyal Club Nintendo Members. I don't know about you but I will be on Club Nintendo and waiting for it to shut down, just to say I was there when it happened. This is truly unbelievable. First Nintendo Power and now this.

All for now, game on gamers..

Back In The Game

It appears that all the facts I've been told by a friend have been pure speculation and Rumor but theres a lot of rumors from other gamers who are convinced or slightly convinced that both Sega and Atari are getting back into the console developer game. Apparently theres a lot of talk of a Dreamcast 2 or Dreamcast X from Sega. But with Sega's Latest Sonic games primarily available on WiiU and 3DS, it seems to me that their playing it safe by Surviving off of Nintendo's sucess. And now it looks like they've changed their name to SEGA Beta. Beta stands for Test, as in: "The game is still in Beta".
Does this mean they don't feel strong enough to consider themselves a full fledge company? Or maybe they thought the word Beta sounded cool. I don't know personally. But I've been told that Both Atari and Sega are trying to get back in the console game. I was also told that Namco is trying something similar but won't be strong enough because Sega and Atari are slightly joining forces in secret. I know its unlikely that ALL of this is 100% True, but both companies are sitting on piles of Money so whos to say they won't try to GET BACK IN THE GAME eventually.

Cube Creator VS MineCraft. Cube Creator 3D Demo Text Review

Well I downloaded a new Demo for the 3DS this week and found that it was a literal copy of Minecraft, with some exceptions. 1.This is only the demo so the full version (when released) could be much better then the demo game. 2.Minecraft is better than Cube Creator 3D, Minecraft has better animation for Water and lava and more options and choices in both Survival and creative. And there's this odd sounding music in the background in Cube Creator that kinda takes away from the game rather then adding to the experience. The Differences list can go on and on but the things that could possible make it a game worth getting are pretty few.

1 (and only 1 so far).The 3D
The 3D in the game is some of the best 3D you can experience, in a block-like world where you build houses and forts and try to survive, there's very little to See in great detail. but the 3D allows you to see the blocks like their really in front of you. With the 3D turned off it looks just like an average Minecraft Clone, but when its turned on you get a different depth perspective which allows you to maneuver in the block world like your actually there. Thats whats fun about the game. But just about everything else has room for improvment.


The space to build in and explore isn't very big at all, you barely have to move around the map before you can't go any further. There needs to be more space fore creativity. And you can't build that high either. The sample map in the demo features a castle structure where you can fly up to the very top and stand on the roof. Go any higher off the roof and you'll discover you can't build anymore, You'll be stopped by an invisible barrier like in Minecraft when you can't build any higher. But the space in this game is limited so much that it makes Minecraft the better choice.

When I first discovered there was going to be a Minecraft clone available on Nintendo systems, I was excited. But unless they improve the full game, I don't want it. It seems to me that this game would only be suitable for kids that don't have Minecraft but have a 3DS.

The blocks they give you are also extremely limited and items as well. The game is ok but doesn't  even come close to Minecraft just yet. Theres room for improvement but the game could get better.

Mario Kart 8, Scribblenauts Unlimited and Amiboo [thats a lot going on]


Flips

Well, This New Years Weekend I played both SSB4 and Mario Kart 8 with my family and realized some very interesting things. Like on MK8 you can use directional flipping. When you hit a medium or large jump and tap the drift button (ZR) you can use the left analog stick to flip any which way you push it. But you must push the stick at the same time you press ZR in order to flip. These flipping Trick maneuvers don't always work. Yet their very fun to experiment with and try out all possible combinations. 


DLC

Right after Christmas 2014 I used my $50 gift card to purchase the Mario Kart 8 DLC, Both packs. I own the first pack right now but the second pack doesn't come out until May this year.
The first pack of DLC includes Tanooki Mario and The Excite Bike Arena which is by far the best course in the game ever (by my own opinion). To Quote Big N Daily: 
"I'm loving the new Mario Kart 8 DLC" 
I can't wait to get the second Courses pack,  Which includes Animal Crossing drivers

Amiibo

As everyone probably knows by now, I now own Five Amiibo figures.
The differences between Amiibo and Skylanders/Disney-Infinity are tremendous. It's like Nintendo took their lame figures and made them better. You don't need to keep the Amiibo on the access point,
You can edit your fighters to your liking, like actually giving them a nickname and changing their outfit/appearance. You can even edit the different Power moves your personal Amiibo fighters have.



Scribblenauts Unlimited


Scribblenauts Unlimited (for both WiiU and 3DS)
is an excellent game with an interesting storyline. Although focusing on magic, the story is playful and tells a tale of good VS evil, A lot like that of Plants VS Zombies. 

 I recently discovered that the 3DS version of Scribblenauts Unlimited doesn't have the Nintendo Characters in it. It was a bit of a let down that the portable version of the game doesn't have Mario, Luigi or Link. None of the Nintendo items are available either. So I later purchased the Scribblenauts Unlimited WiiU game over the WiiU eshop. And to my astonishment, The WiiU game  was 50x better than the 3DS game. Not only did it have more characters (of the Nintendo kind) but it also has more basic features and options. You even get a complete object editor.

In my personal opinion, the WiiU game is better but the 3DS game is portable. So either one of them is good but I prefer the WiiU edition and now I have both of them.
