NintyBeats – Halloween 2019

After a long hiatus, we are reviving the NintyBeats features once again! Leon asked me to resume this series of features, that aims to highlight the vast catalogue of music found in Nintendo games. I am a keen video game music fan, and I feel that Nintendo has some of the greatest and most memorable music of all.

Today is Halloween, and wish to take this opportunity to delve into some eerie sounding music from across some fantastic Nintendo titles. Try not to be too spooked as I share a selection of my favourite eerie music from across the years.

Review: Yoshi’s Crafted World Is Mostly Well-Crafted

It’s somewhat weird to think it, but Yoshi himself has had more consistent releases on Nintendo platforms in the past decade than more prominent leading stars, including Samus Aran, Fox McCloud and even Donkey Kong.

Despite Yoshi’s original sidekick status, the green dinosaur sells, resulting in the most recent title: Yoshi’s Crafted World for the Nintendo Switch. Developed by Good Feel, this game expands upon the idea of an aesthetic of realistic materials. More so than Kirby’s Epic Yarn and Yoshi’s Woolly World before it, Yoshi’s Crafted World shows off its visual creativity in spades while delivering on the mostly expected 2D platforming formula we’ve come to expect from the character.

I’ve been playing Nintendo games since I was 3 years old, and my earliest memory is watching my dad play Super Mario 64.
Since then, I’ve become as big of a fan as you might imagine: YouTube video projects, fan fiction, owning just about every amiibo — you name it!
I’m also a stalwart defender of underappreciated games like Skyward Sword, Other M, Super Paper Mario, Star Fox Adventures, Star Fox Zero and more. I love to see passion in a gaming product, and my desire on this site is to share a similar passion in what I write.

REVIEW – Poochy and Yoshi’s Woolly World

Back in 2015, Yoshi knitted himself into a brand new adventure on Wii U, in Yoshi’s Wooly World. He’s now unravelled in size onto the 3DS, and brought a four legged friend with him in Poochy and Yoshi’s Woolly World.

Has the downsize kept the fuzzy charm of the original, or has Yoshi snagged a thread in Poochy and Yoshi’s Woolly World? Find out in our review, 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!

REVIEW – Mario Party Star Rush

Christmas is coming, and what’s better to celebrate than with a party. And what’s better to celebrate a party than with a Mario Party… well, depending on which one, a lot! Mario and friends are back in Mario Party Star Rush, where this time, everyone can move at the same time.

Is Mario still the centre of the party, or will Mario Party Star Rush crash hard (just like Tesco Value booze… don’t drink kids)? Check out the review, after the break!

REVIEW – Mario and Luigi: Paper Jam Bros.

Don’t worry, you’re not seeing double. What you are seeing is an epic crossover of two awesome Mario franchises, Mario and Luigi, and Paper Mario. A mysterious book that contains the world of Paper Mushroom Kingdom was accidentally opened, causing most of the world to burst out in a flurry like a pop-up gone rogue, including Paper Mario, Paper Toads, Paper Minions, Paper Bowser Jr, and Paper Bowser!

Will Paper Jam Bros. claim victory like how paper beats rock, or does it just lack depth? Find out in our review, after the break!

REVIEW – Yoshi’s Woolly World

A faithful yet mistreated steed, an eggcelent smasher, and a plumber’s babysitter, T. Yoshisaur Munchakoopas, or more commonly known as Yoshi, has had many jobs throughout his history and now he is making a warm and fuzzy return on the Wii U after his latest outing on 3DS, though this time he has ditched his babysitting duties to save Craft Island and its inhabitants from unraveling from existence in Yoshi’s Woolly World!

Is Woolly World better than that cuddly bear you still cuddle, or more embarrassing than the christmas jumper your gran got you last year… in June? Find out in our review after the break!

Nintendo @ E3 2015: The Bittersweet Presentation

Well, the presentation is now over and it was… interesting. It started out with some amazing announcements, but then quickly become less exciting, or at least it did for me. Either way, it doesn’t feel like it was a proper E3 presentation in my eyes, it wasn’t even as long as the other presentations!

Check out what the even included with my opinions after the break!
