Super Bowl XLI

by on

Tomorrow is the big day, Indianapolis Colts vs Chicago Bears, both teams started in a pretty good shape, winning most of their games, but when the regular season was coming to an end they started to make major mistakes, Indianapolis on their defense and Chicago on their offense.

When the playoffs started there weren't many people who believed that those teams would make it to the Super Bowl, I was one of those I thought it was more likely for both New Orleans Saints and San Diego Chargers to head to Miami, but once again the NFL playoffs showed that there is never a favorite team in any game. San Diego was defeated by Belichicke's Patriots and the New Orleans Saints couldn't go through Chicago's strong defense.

I'm a Buccaneer fan since I watched my first game which was the Super Bowl XXXVII where the Bucs defeated the Raiders, unfortunately this season the team wasn't good enough to win many games, I hope they fix their problems and win the NFC South so we can go back to the playoffs.

Tomorrow I'll be rooting for Indianapolis because I do believe Peyton Manning deserves to win a Super Bowl but I wish good luck to both teams, I hope it will be an unforgetable game.

By the way, I just ordered both Metroid and Zelda for my NES, so while I'm still playing Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life I'll be waiting for those games to arrive, I also think I got someone to sell me Earthbound which is one of the hardest SNES games to find around here, I don't know if it is the same in other places.

See ya!

My Wii saga continues

by on

There is still hope for me to get my Wii. I think I got someone to send me it by mail, I'm not sure about it yet, but I hope it will happen this time.

I got my Harvest Moon for GameCube yesterday and I cant stop playing it, it is really nice to take care of the farm, although the game doesn't present anything much different from other installments of the series.

I'll also get Metroid for my NES soon, I'm not buying those games for the Virtual Consle because here in Brazil is cheaper to buy a NES game than those Wii points that are actually quite hard to find, I've only found some over the internet.

In February 10th me and other 7 friends are going to do a GameCube championship, we'll play 11 different games to see who's going to win. We have already done it 5 times, but the past championships were all N64-only, I hope we can do the sae thing with the Wii soon.

I'm looking forward to the Super Bowl!

Not getting my Wii this month

by on

I just discovered that the person who was supposed to bring me my Nintendo Wii didn't do it. Now I'm going to be without a Wii for a long time, I have two options either I find someone else to buy it on the US or I buy it here where the system is highly overpriced.

I can't wait to play Wario Ware Smooth Moves but I guess I need to be patient, fortunately that is the only game I'm crazy to play on the Wii so far, otherwise I would be really mad because I don't have a Wii.

In order to relax I just bought Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life, I'm waiting for it to arrive here, I hope it is a great game because I was a little disappointed with the last game I bought, Pikmin 2.

I just have one month of vacation left so I want to play a lot of games because when my vacation ends I will hopefully start at the University and I will also be working, so I won't have much time to do many things.

My 2007 Wishlist

by on

Another year is beginning and as many of you guys did I'm going to make my own Wishlist for this year. I know it is a pretty long list, I don't think I'll get all those games since some of them are really rare, at least here in Brazil.

Here it is:

NES:
Kid Icarus
Metroid
The Legend of Zelda
Super Mario Bros. 2
Contra
Balloon Fight

SNES:
Earthbound(Really hard to find)
Donkey Kong Country 2
Super Metroid
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to Past
Mario RPG
Killer Instinct
Super Mario World 2

NGC:
Mario Party 5
Harvest Moon: A wonderful life
Viewtful Joe
Batallion Wars

WII(First I have to get the system)
Rayman
Wario Ware
Super Smash Bros Brawl
Super Mario Galaxy
Mario Party 8
Metroid Prime 3

I've already played and finished most of this games except the ones for NGC and WII , but I'm planning on building a Nintendo collection, I hope I can get at least half of them, I also want to buy some more games for my DS but I don't know if I'll have enough money for that.

Still waiting for my Wii.

Got Excitebike for my NES

by on
My Wii hasn't arrived yet, I'm really anxious, perhaps I could freeze myself just like Cartman did, but I think it would'nt be such a great idea. :D

Today I was browsing on the internet at work and I got a great deal on a classic NES game that I believe everybody loves, Excitebike, although I have already played it many times I won't get tired of it.

I guess older games are usually more addictive than the latest releases from the game industry, it happens because 20 years ago games were obviously much shorter than they are now, so producers had to struggle in order to make games that would last for a long time.

I'm not saying that those games were better than the games most of us play nowadays, they are just different because fortunately for us gamers, the companies are always creating new ways of interaction with their systems and that's how great franchises such as Mario, Final Fantasy, Zelda, Metroid and Sonic are still being played after so many years.

Almost finishing my GameCube collection

by on
After four years with my GameCube and many moments of enjoyment is now time for a new system to arrive here, at least I hope it gets here.

During this four years with my GameCube I played many games, unfortunately not as much games as I've played in my Nintendo 64 specially because here in Brazil I can't find any places where I can rent games for a GameCube.

Nintendo was really popular during the early nineties but it all changed when the Playstation was released and as people could easily buy cheap copies of the games, specially Winning Eleven and GTA, the system was a success, the same thing happened with the Playstation 2. Therefore Nintendo was kind of forgotten but now with the Nintendo Wii it looks like they will be back on top.

Well so far I've got 20 GameCube games which I think is enough, but I'm still interested on getting some more.

I own:
Animal Crossing
Metroid Prime
Metroid Prime 2
Super Mario Sunshine
Super Smash Bros. Melee
Mario Party 4
Mario Party 6
Mario Party 7
Mario Kart: Double Dash
Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
Pikmin 2
Mario Power Tennis
Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour
Mario Superstar Baseball
Super Mario Strikers
NBA 2003
Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronichles
F-Zero GX
Star Fox: Assault

I still want to buy Mario Party 5, Viewtful Joe, Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life and Batallion Wars, after that I'll focus on my Nintendo Wii.


Getting my Wii this month

by on
As you guys probably already know the Wii is being sold here in Brazil for $1,200 which is a rip off, I know the Wii is a great system but is hard to afford it.

I got someone to send me one from the US, actually I got two people to do that therefore maybe I'll get two Wiis, if that happens I'll sell one. The first Nintendo Wii is getting here by  January 15th and I can't wait to put my hands on it.

I know I'll only play Wii Sports for some days because I'm only getting the Wii + Wii Sports package, but I'm thrilled anyway because I wasn't expecting to get a Wii that soon.

After I get some money I'll buy Rayman and NFL 2007, now that I'm working it hopefully won't take long, I could also get Twilight Princess but as I already have the GameCube version I don't feel so compelled to buy it.

Wario Ware is also going to be released this month and I'm sure it is going to be the craziest game ever, It will probably be my personal favorite for a really long time.

I know that by now the Wii doens't present that many great games, but do you guys have any other suggestions of games that I should get?


Animal Crossing

by on
I traveled this weekend and as I probably wouldn't have anything to do I took my Nintendo DS, Mario Kart and Animal Crossing with me.

While replaying Animal Crossing which I didn't play for almost 6 months, I started thinking about what possibilities will Nintendo explore on the next game of the series that will come out for the Wii.

Besides being a slightly powerful system it also features the 24-hour Wii connect that will probably allow you to travel from one town to another any time you want, it is sure going to be a great experience.

So, Do you guys have any ideas of what this new installment is going to present?

This week I plan to finish both Minish Cap and Ocarina of Time, I'll finish the latter because I want to compare it better to Twilight Princess and maybe rewrite my review.

I've also been playing The Legend Of Zelda for the NES, so far I've beaten the first and third dungeon and it is really a nice game that remains good until now.

Happy New Year everyone!

Zelda Timeline

by on
Many things have been said about The Legend of Zelda's timeline, each Zelda fan has their own opinion about how do the games complete each other. But there is actually only one person who knows what the proper order is, that is it, if there is one.

But today I saw a video of a pretty good theory, I believe that if this isn't the correct order than it got really close to that.

This is the video:
Timeline

Not only they manage to connect every single Zelda game but they also give enough reasons for us to believe in that. What do you guys think?

Finished Twilight Princess

by on
After many suprises while playing the game I finally got to Twilight Princess' end today, and I as I always do when I finish a game I wrote a review, a quite big one, for this amazing game.

The final battle was awesome, and for me Twilight Princess is better than Ocarina of Time.

Now I wonder what is Nintendo preparing for the next Zelda game.
