Game Hunting: Super Donkey Kong 3D World: Tropical Freeze

I know!! It’s not retro! But it’s too much of a hassle to change the title on each and every entry now isn’t it? Sure, you guys probably couldn’t care less, but it really bothers me. Maybe I ought to call this something in the lines of:

“Video Game Hunting”

“Good Will Hunting”

“I’ll Buy it if it’s Cheap!”

“Spare Change?”

“It’s My Life, and it’s Now or Never”

“I’m Gonna Live Forever”

“Search for Games”

If you have any better suggestions I’d really like to hear them, these ones were difficult to come up with! Anyhow, let’s get this one started!

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Super Mario 3D World

My wife bought these for us, she really is perfect! She bought them 2 months ago and we beat Super Mario 3D World already and sure had a blast playing through it all! We didn’t get all the stars and all the flags and such, but had a lot of fun while playing this game, me choosing Mario and she Princess Peach.

Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze is really fun as well and packed with a difficulty curve that rivals the original SNES titles. We’re at the 3rd world currently and haven’t played much more since we got our hands on Mario Kart 8!

I really like this reference to the first The Legend of Zelda game to the NES, this dude clearly references what the Old Man says when he gives Link his first Wooden Sword.

This view of Bowser’s World really was stunning and colorful, and truly befitting a final boss! The background music really was funky too and went well together with the design.

It’s true as this gamer says: The manual of the original Super Mario Bros. for the NES clearly states that Bowser has turned the inhabitants of the Mushroom Kingdom into bricks and such, which means that you run around committing murders throughout the game whenever you destroy a brick.

Mario Kart 8

I apoligize as I didn’t have a photo of the case itself, and ultimately I had to borrow one from the Internet, follow the link below to the original image.

This has to be the best installment in the series thus far, it’s really fun to play both alone and with friends, and the new mechanics feel relevant and bring a lot of new elements to the gameplay while maintaining the core aspects of the franchise. The graphics are top-notch, the music magnificent and the gameplay near-perfect. A must have for all Wii U owners and Mario Kart fans! We got this as a pre-order – we just couldn’t wait to play it!
