Super Smash Bros Brawl

super smash brosSuper Smash Bros Brawl is a fighting game where many characters from various games collide. It is made for the Wii and pre-dated by Super Smash Bros Melee for the GameCube, and before that, the original Super Smash Bros for the N64.

SSBB has the main characters from many popular series. For instance, you can battle as Mario or Luigi, or as Fox, or as Kirby, or as any of the many other main characters. In my opinion, SSBB is one of the best multiplayer games, and is great for parties, sleepovers, or just play dates.

SSBB has various modes to play in. There is the regular fighting mode, or you can dive into the story by playing “Sub Space Emissary,” or you can try the various challenge modes like “Target Smash” or “Home-Run Contest,” or you can play Wi-Fi and battle people across the world.

Not only are the games high-quality and challenging, pitting your favorite characters against each other is really cool. Once again I say it is one of the best multiplayer games out there.

Kirby Air Ride for GameCube

Kirby Air Ride is a racing game that was made in 2003 for the GameCube. It is old I admit, but I was intrigued by a Kirby racing game, so I decided to check it out. It is now one of my favorite games ever! It is fast-paced and exciting fun and very challenging to complete.

Kirby Air Ride has three modes of gameplay: Air Ride, Top Ride, and City Trial. All of these modes have a list of achievements, unique differences, and sub modes.

Air Ride mode is a basic racing mode, except you only start with one car which is the Warp Star. Thankfully, most of the other cars are easy to unlock, but a few others are insanely hard to unlock. It has two sub-modes which are Free Run and Time Attack. In Free Run you have no enemies to obstruct you, so you can go for as long and far as you want until you quit. Time Attack is a mode to see how fast you can complete three laps.

Top Ride mode is a racing mode, but instead of playing at the regular view it is played at a bird’s eye view with shorter tracks. Top Ride has no unlockable cars; instead you have only the free star and the turn star. Its two sub-modes are also Time Attack and Free Run.

City Trial is a mode where you have no choice of car in the beginning. Instead you always start on the compact star, in a city where you gather power-ups and find new cars in order to win in the mini game that comes after time runs out. You also can thwart your enemies by attacking them and gathering the power-ups that they drop. It also has two sub-modes: Free Run and Stadium. In Stadium you can freely play any mini game that you have played in City Trial.

Buy this game! I’ll bet you enjoy it as much as I do.

Nintendo DS

The Nintendo DS is a portable game station. It’s predated by the Nintendo Gameboy and Nintendo Gameboy Advance, and has various models.

The DS is the first of all of the DS systems. It’s very bulky and rough. I have not played it myself, but my some of my friends own the DS, and it is very durable. On of my friends dropped his DS out of a moving car and it still works. The DS can play the older Gameboy and Gameboy Advance games.

The DS Lite is the second model of the DS. It is less durable but smaller, smoother, and easier to carry around. It can also play Gameboy and Gameboy Advance games. I used to own one but it broke when someone bumped into me and I dropped it.

The DSi is the third model of DS and the one that I currently own. It is sleeker and even more portable than the past models. It has some cool features that the older models did not have. For instance, it can access the internet and has a flip book function and more fun things; however, the DSi cannot play Gameboy or Gameboy Advance games.

The DSi XL is the latest model of the DS and is basically the same as the DSi except that it is much larger and more durable. I am not sure if it has any additional functions because I have not used one and none of my friends have either.

The 3DS is the future model of DS which is scheduled to be released on March 27, 2011. It will have 3D graphics without the use of glasses, as well as a joy-stick.

I know what I’m putting on my wish list!
