Well, long time no see. I haven’t posted in a while but I decided to write this. As you all know, Mario Kart Super Circuit is a game that means a lot to me. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t have some favourite tracks. In this article, I will be going through some of my favourite tracks. Note that these won’t be in any particular order what-so-ever.

1. Snow Land

I think this track is definitely a memorable one for me. The background, the scenery and the icy track are the elements that definitely make the whole thing into one beautiful track…


Who’s the guy in orange who’s there to help you improve your game? Who’s the guy who’s bald and has a nice goatee? That’s right, Matt. One of Wii Sports’s top icons, alongside Elisa. Each of them specialize in certain sports however, but this article is mostly about Matt. Sit back and enjoy.

Ever since the release of Wii Sports back in 2006, the originally tech-demo has gone on to become the best-selling game for the Wii. The main games included are Tennis, Baseball, Bowling, Golf and Boxing, plus Training games and a Fitness Test. Yes, everyone loved that one…


There are some Mario Kart titles that do have custom tracks such as Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 7, which did NOT come with the game and had to be downloaded elsewhere. Super Circuit was one of the earliest Mario Kart games which didn’t have these custom tracks for sure. But I wish it did.

I had a dream that Super Circuit had custom tracks in some super special cup, NOT called “Special Cup”. These tracks had such an outstanding design and fascinating background. There were five tracks in this so-called “Cup” and the only one I remember to…


A lot of us have moved on to the newer games in this franchise. I’ve done the same too but I feel like playing Pokémon Sun was a fun and memorable game. I was even thinking about the Poni Island music while writing this. From its striking graphics to exclusive Pokémon you could only catch via QR Codes. There was just so much to it and even Festival Plaza had quite a lot to offer. Without further ado, let’s get started.

The first and upmost important thing to talk about Pokémon Sun is the main story plot. Set in the…


Pokémon GO is that one Pokémon game users could play with one hand and who else watched Pokémon on TV and saw Ash acquire new Pokémon and companions? Well, I was recommended to play this by a friend and just started playing Pokémon GO and it has a unique touch to it. Not because it was released for the smartphone. It’s because during the gameplay, it feels as if we’re in the Kanto Region or whichever, just walking around to different places and seeing different Pokémon is what’s fascinating.

I know I’m quite late on this but it doesn’t matter…


Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Odyssey share a lot in common. From the principles of how it worked to the good times we had, these games were loved by so many people. I probably won’t include pictures in this article too, but you’ll see them if I do. Let’s get into it.

As you all know, the discovery of finding Luigi in Super Mario 64 made the headlines for the past couple days. This was such a big milestone for the Super Mario 64 community and fanbase. My mouth dropped when I first saw the article on the Google…


The 3DS is a handheld console made by Nintendo, part of the 3DS family and all those related systems. There were two versions of the 3DS, the regular models released in 2011 and the “new” models released later in the decade. 3DS systems can be classified as two different sides models. LL and XL. LL is the smaller one and XL is the larger one.

The first version of the 3DS was released in 2011, which I have mentioned above, and the XL model was released a bit later I believe. Now, the 3DS is called the 3DS for a…


The GameBoy Advance is cherished by a lot of people in the retro community and they certainly enjoy its games. A lot of GBA games have made their way to the newer consoles under the Virtual Console category, which was also similar to the 3DS Ambassador Program in 2011. This question has been asked on news articles, “What GBA games are coming to the Nintendo Switch?”. This article talks about what GBA games could be coming to the Switch as Virtual Console games and what games could possibly have their own Nintendo Switch version in my opinion. …


Introduction

The 2008 edition of Mario and Sonic at the Olympics was one that began an unforgettable series. Participating in any Olympic event of your choice in the comfort of your own home alongside your favourite video game characters was an enjoyable experience for a lot of us. Released on November 6, 2007 for the Wii and in January 2008 for the DS, this game sold more than 10,000,000 units and the Wii port received the award of “Best Wii game of 2007”. …


Introduction

Its graphics are striking, features many worlds, and lets the main character run around in a ball. Yes, I’m talking about none other than Super Monkey Ball Jr. Released on November 29, 2002 for the Game Boy Advance, this game is one that GBA game collectors would definitely want to add to their collection, despite the fact that it identifies as more of a puzzle game.

Game Modes

A good place to start is the two different game modes that Super Monkey Ball Jr. has to offer. They are called “Main Game” and “Mini Games”. I don’t have the mini games unlocked…
