First off, I KNOW. It has been FOREVER. And you want to know why?? Because I haven’t really had a chance to GAME. Seriously. But I am okay. I worked my way through by trying to sneak an hour a week at least. Yeah… it was cruel.
But now, I have a little more time, PLUS I have some fun news! Guess what my husband got me!
That’s right. Not only is it a “New” 3DS (literally the name apparently) but it is the HYRULE GOLD EDITION! Being the huge Zelda fan and loving most products that come with any sort of relation to it, my husband splurged and got this for me. (It even has a clear case so I can still see the design.) He has a Red New 3DS and we got games so we can play them!
Oh yes. Yes yes yes.
We have done our little sampling and I can tell you about these games already.
Let me tell you how I am very surprised at how fantastic Mario Party: Island Tour is? With one cartridge, up to 4 people can play together? My husband and I tried it and it worked amazing well. We had fun, there was no issues, no serious lag or anything. It was a very enjoyable experience (Except when Boo beat us. Seriously, we were in the lead the entire game… and he sneaks up on the LAST Turn and BOOM, he is the winner. For real.)
Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is just how I remember it for the N64, which means it is amazing. I have to say, turning on the 3D actually made it seem like it was a much higher quality graphics than it was. But I can only handle so much of that at once. But I am still loving it.
Super Smash Bros 3DS… I have to adjust to the controls and I found out having the Amiibo is essentially having a character that you train, upgrade and improve but you don’t actually play it. You play AGAINST it. Huh.
Project X Zone 2 is actually one I am not playing. That one is purely my husband’s but he says it is amazing.
So short version:
Mario Party = awesome for couple gaming
Zelda = Forever amazing still
Smash Bros = Kind of expected
Project X = Husband loves it.
Oh, and yeah:
Can you tell how excited I am?
