Mario Sports Retrospective Part One – Mario Tennis

Mario first stole our collective hearts with his phenomenal platforming adventures. From his early appearances in the Donkey Kong series, to more recent platforming escapades such as Mario Odyssey, it’s safe to say that Mario has always been at the forefront of the platforming genre. Yet, over the years, Mario and his friends have broadened their horizons, branching out into a wide variety of other titles, including the ever-popular racing series, Mario Kart, and puzzle games such as Dr Mario and Mario Picross. One of the most enduring series are the Mario Sports games, which have become a fixture on multiple Nintendo systems over the years. These have seen Mario participate in sports ranging from golf to horse riding and even competing in the Olympics with former-rival, Sonic the Hedgehog. For this series of features, I will be looking back at the Mario Sports titles beginning with my personal favourite, Mario Tennis.

I have been gaming for 30 years, starting mostly with PC Gaming, where I developed a penchant for classic point and click games. Over time I discovered Nintendo, starting with the Game Boy and the Super Mario Land games. Here, my love for Nintendo grew as I discovered many of their other franchises, from Zelda to Pokémon. These days I play a bit of everything but Nintendo and their unique creativity always keeps me coming back for more.

Darren’s Animal Crossing Memory Walk

I first heard about the Animal Crossing franchise from the original Nintendo Official Magazine (NOM) in the UK, which was advertising the GameCube Animal Crossing title. The series didn’t initially interest me, and it wasn’t until a friend of mine showed me his American copy of Animal Crossing: Wild World on his DS Lite, that my attention for the series piqued. There was just something appealing about the idea of a chilled and relaxed game, where you collect fish and bugs and play with friends in person and online. At the time, the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection was still quite new, and I loved the idea of playing with friends across the world.

Darren is a huge Nintendo fan from the days of the Gameboy Color and his copy of Pokémon Blue. Over time, he developed a passion for many Nintendo franchises, including Metroid. His favourite system is the Wii.

Departing Memories of Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Only days remain until the departure gate opens for Animal Crossing New Horizons. Not too long until we move away from our lovely towns from our fabulous neighbours. We have many fond memories of turning over a New Leaf on the Nintendo 3DS, so we are taking this opportunity to tell them before our New Horizons induced self isolation.

Check them out after the break!

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!

Have you ever wondered what all those Yo-kai get up to while your tucked away in your warm, cozy bed? Sure, some may try to inspirit your dreams, or make you want to go number one in the middle of your slumber, but what about all the others? Some get up to no good in Nate’s neighbourhood, but others form the infamous Yo-kai Watch Blasters, fighting crime in Terror Time!

Is YO-KAI WATCH Blasters: Red Cat Corps and White Dog Squad as pumped (up) as a Blazion, or as disastrous as a Buhu? Find out in our review, after the break!

REVIEW – WarioWare Gold

Me and Wario both have a lot in common. We both enjoy the sweet smell and taste of garlic, we’re both a bit on the tubby side, we are both relatively poor, and, most importantly, we both have a passion for games.

Wario and his ‘friends’ from Diamond City are finally back, now with over 300 different microgames. You better get ready to pick some noses, pull off some smooth moves, and much more before time runs out in WarioWare Gold for Nintendo 3DS Family Systems.

WAAAAH! I’m not tubby, just big boned… yeah, big boned. Also, I have plenty of friends, I paid them plenty of coins to hang around me. Some would I was being two generous giving them ten whole coins (to share), so I gave them five instead. Why did I even give you this game for FREE when you’re just gunna insult me!

Errrm, okay… so, is WarioWare Gold’s fun factor as hefty as a lovely bar of gold, or is it more empty than Wario’s wallet? Find out in our review, after the break!

HEY!
