Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games











Mario Party 9 Wii Game

I have played Mario Party games ever since they were on the N64, and now for the Wii you get 80 all-new minigames! Play the minigames solo or in a group. Whomever collects the most MiniStars on the board game is the Superstar! I would say the boss battles were more fun when you played with friends.









Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games  3DS Game

As a fan of both Mario and Sonic, this sports game was a hit. There are a couple of options to play the Olympic games in single, multiplayer, or story mode. In story mode, Dr. Eggman (Sonic game) creates so much London fog that they’ll have to delay the Olympics. You could also play minigames alone or in teams with your favorite characters from the Nintendo and Sega franchise. It’s interesting that the characters talk after winning/losing a game, but they resort to just grunts during cutscenes. The dialogue in the story mode is quite funny. My favorite player to be is Luigi because whenever he wins 1st place, he busts a breakdance move!

Mariokart DS










Mariokart DS  DS Game

Mariokart is a pretty fun arcade game, and now you can get it handheld with all the same action. I don’t mean to brag, but I am always first place as Princess Peach.

The Art of Video Games

The Art of Video Games  Book

Are video games art? For those who could not make it out to one of the 10 cities featuring The Art of Video Games National exhibition, you can read about the art of games since the 1970’s Atari system, and all the way to the Playstation 3. I’d recommend this book to gamers of all levels, who appreciate the graphics, storytelling, music, and cinematography of video games.

The Wizard

The Wizard DVD

Starring a very young Fred Savage, this movie tells a story about a boy who is a video game wiz, who gets a high score on everything he plays, and travels with his brother and friend to a LA National Video Game Championship. The Super Mario Brothers 3 game is featured.
