7th - Paper Mario

by on

A little while after the release of Super Mario RPG, Square left Nintendo and many fans thought Mario would never appear on a RPG game again. This changed when in 2001 Paper Mario was launched.

The main charm of the game is its Paper style that will make you remember those days when you couldn't stop playing Mario Bros. Besides, the game also keeps all features that made its predecessor a huge classic, such as the nice battle system, beautiful scenarios, many strategies to be used and, of course, all those marvelous characters that inhabit the Mushroom Kingdom.

You can also learn several special moves by using over 50 badges that can be found in the game. With that many options, added to many hours of gameplay and one of the highest levels of challenge you will find in any game, Paper Mario is definitely a classic.

8th- Metroid Prime

by on

Metroid Prime is perhaps the best transition any game has ever made for the 2-D side-scrolling style to a huge 3-D environment.

Although the game and its world are pretty different from the ones featured in its prior versions, all the Metroid series feeling is still here.

With overwhelming graphics, large areas to be explored, many items to be found and many pieces of information to be discovered, Metroid Prime is an interesting game that is a classic in every single aspect.

9th - The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask

by on

A game that is still criticized by many people and loved by many others, is in fact one of the most astonishing games ever.

Two years after the massive success Ocarina Of Time had, Nintendo decided to release a sequel, while many gamers were expecting a game that would follow into its predecessor's footsteps, Nintendo came up with something completely different.

With a creepy storyline and a new world to be explored, Majora's Mask is indeed an awesome game, although it is a lot shorter than its prior version, the game has lots of interesting sidequests, 24 different masks to be used, 4 temples in which you will need to use your Deku, Goron and Zora masks and it also features the most beautiful graphics that players had seen up to that year. 

10th - Banjo-Kazooie

by on

With stunning graphics, nice songs and an unusual storyline, Banjo-Kazooie quickly became my favorite game when I was 8-years-old.

It is just amazing to explore all 10 worlds, learn all the moves, find all jiggies, musical notes, honeycombs and Jinjos. A long challenging game filled with funny characters and worlds with the most different scenarios, from a ship to a haunted mansion, Banjo-Kazooie has got everything it takes to be considered not only a N64 classic but also a game that even 8 years after its release is still remembered in every single conversation about platformers.

Congratulations Rareware for making such a nice game.

My Top 10 Games of All Time

by on

As Nintendo Wii's release approaches I decided to make my own countdown.

I will post, from today to November 19th my favorite games of all time up to the Gamecube.

Come back later.

Buying a NES this month

by on

November has finally arrived, the real battle of this generation will start in around 18 days when both PS3 and Wii will be launched.

While many people are going to buy the latest systems, I'm going to do something different.

My NES stopped working about 8 years ago, since then I've only played NES' games in my computer. That is about to change because I got a great deal on a NES. I don't even know how many games will be included, I just know I'm going to buy it.

I'm quite happy because my Nintendo collection will be completed once again, also because I will have a great time playing all those awesomely fun games as Mario Bros, Ballon Fight, Kid Icarus and Metroid.

Sorry, I haven't been on lately, I have been studying a lot for my SAT exams, but fortunately my vacation will start soon so I'll be able to rest, play games and be active.

Once again my Memory Card is corrupt

by on

I can't understand what keeps happening to my Memory Cards, I have never heard anybody complain about GC's Memory Cards, It seems like I'm the only one that has problems with that.

I have already bought 4 Memory Cards, all of them got corrupt. The strange thing is I don't do anything wrong with them, I keep them inside the game boxes and somehow they stop working.

I'll wait until tomorrow hoping it will work again, if it doesn't  I'm going to format it and lose all of my Metroid Prime, Smash Bros, Mario Baseball, Wind Waker, Mario Kart, Star Fox and many other games data.

Some games I just don't bother losing all data, but there are some that are quite hard and boring to unlock many things like in Super Smash Bros and my Metroid Prime file.

I'd like to know if those things have already happened to any of you guys?

Playing Metroid Prime

by on

I haven't been doing much around Gamespot lately because I'm addicted to Metroid Prime and I just can't stop playing it.

I got to Phazon Mines yesterday and I'm loving it. Is so thrilling, you never know what you will find in the next room and how your enemies are going to strike.

Before Phazon Mines the game was looking kind of easy but when I first entered that place I completely changed my mind, getting to the second save spot was quite hard but now that I'm through I'm quite happy.

I hope I can finish this game as soon as possible because in one week I'll start to take an eight-hour a day course, so I won't have time to play anything. I'll study during the morning, go to the course in the afternoon and only get home late at night. 

No!! Banjo-Kazooie for XBOX 360!

by on

Today I read an interview from one of Rare's developers and he said they are starting to produce a new Banjo-Kazooie game for the XBOX 360.

For me that's pretty sad because I really love both games of the series and as I'm not buying an XBOX 360,so I won't be able to play this game.

Although I always knew it was impossible for Nintendo Wii to get a Banjo release I still believed in that, but I guess that after this news my hope is gone.

Getting Metroid Prime next week

by on

While I'm waiting for Nintendo Wii's release I'll now start to buy games from the GC that I wish I had bought before, but I couldn't because either I wasn't interested or I didn't have the money.

I'll start with Metroid Prime, because I've always heard that it is the best game for the GC besides it is long and hard, two features I always look foward to see.

After Metroid Prime I'll go for Harvest Moon and Metroid Prime 2, I'm also trying to find Mario Party 5 which is the only version of the series I'm missing, but this one is pretty hard to find here in Brazil so I guess I need to wait a little longer.

And by the way, I'm almost finishing Wind Waker with 100%.:D
