Top Tuesday: Favorite Things To Do In Animal Crossing

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

I’ve got Animal Crossing on the brain lately since I played Happy Home Designer. I started playing New Leaf again and it’s been a while. I’ve rediscovered so many things I love about that game.

Favorite Things To Do In Animal Crossing | Nintendo | DoublexJump.com

Kapp’n

Going to the tropical island is one of my favorite things to do. Most people may skip the boat scene, but I always listen to it. I love reading what Kapp’n has to say mostly because it’s usually funny. I also just love the way his voice sounds. The character speak has always amused me, but Kapp’n voice is my favorite, hands down.

The Island

I can’t explain how many times I’ve gone to the island and spent hours there at one time just searching for and catching sharks. They sell so well and you pay off your debt, no matter how big, in about a day. The music is fun and it’s just relaxing and casual.

Writing Letters

I’ve heard people say they hate writing letters in Animal Crossing. It’s annoying and people will write down something random and send it because the characters aren’t actually reading it. However, I write actual letters and I love sending them. Is it annoying? Yes. But I do it because I love to get mail and the only mail I get in real life are bills.

Collecting Things

This should come as no surprise. I love to collect things no matter what it is. In Animal Crossing you’re trying to get all the bugs, fish, paintings, and fossils. Then there are the many kinds of furniture you can get along with the clothes. Even the villagers are collectibles. Though I don’t like “forcing” the villagers to move away… because then I feel bad.

Top Tuesday: 5 Games That Will Never Get Old

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

Lately, I’ve been playing games that have been sitting in my game bucket for a while. Some of these games have been forgotten over the years, especially with new consoles and games constantly being announced and released. There are some games, however, that will always and forever just be awesome.

5 games that will never get old | video games | DoublexJump.com

Mario Party 2

Kris and I have played this game a couple times recently. I don’t know what made us decide to play it again but we did and we’ve been having a lot of fun with it. It’s refreshing to play again since there haven’t been many great Mario Party games in a long time.

Paper Mario

I will never get over this game. Paper Mario is just fantastic all around. Between the gameplay, characters, music, and graphics, Paper Mario is one of my favorites. I especially love the graphics. The Nintendo 64 had great graphics for its time, but I feel like Paper Mario took it up a level, despite how simple it is.

Animal Crossing

The original Animal Crossing game for the Gamecube was great. It was simple and casual. I love New Leaf, probably more so than the original game, but the Gamecube game has a certain charm to it. It was the beginning of a now huge series that everyone loves and adores. I’m still keeping my fingers crossed for a Switch game.

Pokemon Crystal (or any old Pokemon game)

I say Crystal specifically because Nintendo just released it on the virtual console for the 3DS. Playing the older games now can be annoying because you can’t run right away or not at all, your item inventory is limited, etc. Still, the original games are wonderful and bring back a lot of memories.

Super Mario 64

Who doesn’t love this game? This game has made history. It’s hard for me to explain why I love this game so much because I just do. Like Paper Mario, I just love the goofy graphics, the random glitches (as annoying as they are), the music, and various levels and tasks. It’s great.

Top Tuesday: Favorite SNES Games As A Kid

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

I talked about my favorite SNES Classic games a couple weeks ago and it got me thinking about some of the other games I used to play on the SNES as a kid. Games that didn’t make it to the Classic edition.

Favorite SNES Games played as a kid | SNES | Nintendo | SNES Games | DoublexJump.com

4. Goof Troop

This game wasn’t good. At all. But I loved it anyway. Why? I think it was because everyone else hated it. Kris would never play it with me and I always had to beg my Dad to play guilt-tripping him by saying Kris wouldn’t play with me. I don’t remember the point of this game. The main thing I remember is me playing as Max and my Dad playing as Goofy. As Max, I kept picking up barrels and throwing them at Goofy and my Dad couldn’t figure out why he was losing health. That’s pretty much it.

3. The Lion King

This was always a fun game. Though I don’t think we ever beat it. There was no save and we could never play long enough to actually get through the game. I remember Kris almost made it to the Scar fight once. For some reason, we never did make it though. Still, it was fun to run around like a lion.

2. Tiny Toons: Buster Busts Loose

Tiny Toons was awesome. The game, if I remember correctly, wasn’t actually that bad either. Kris and I used to play and I think our other sister used to play with us as well. Any game that got the three of us playing together was a good game.

1. TMNT: Turtles In Time

The best game ever. You can’t go wrong with anything Ninja Turtles and I wish this game came out on the SNES Classic because I would love to play it again. Kris and I had so much fun with it when we were kids. We were crazy about Ninja Turtles too, so I’m sure that helped.

Top Tuesday: Favorite SNES Classic Games

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

Kris and I have been playing around with our SNES Classic a lot lately. So many games bring back nostalgia, so here are some of my favorites.

Favories SNES Classic Edition Games | SNES Classic Games | Nintendo | DoubleJump.com

5. Super Mario Kart

I’ll admit that I don’t remember playing too much of Super Mario Kart when I was a kid. I think I was too young. I do remember watching Kris play it with my Dad sometimes and our other older sister. Playing it now is fun, but… I’m not very good at it.

4. The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past

I’ll be honest with this one too. I don’t think we ever really played this game. My Uncle used to play it a lot because my grandparents had a SNES. Still, it’s Zelda. You can’t go wrong.

3. Yoshi’s Island

I love Yoshi. Any game that stars Yoshi is wonderful to me. I had completely forgotten about this game until I saw it on the classic and I can’t wait to play it again.

2. Donkey Kong Country

The last time I played this was a couple years ago on the Wii Ware. Kris and I thought it’d be fun to play again but we never finished it. One, I got my wisdom teeth out and we just forgot about it. Two, we couldn’t get past a certain level like children. So… yeah.

1. Super Mario RPG

This one brings back the most memories. Kris used to play this one a lot as it was her favorite. I’ve never played it myself but always looked forward to watching her; especially the mine cart part. I don’t know why, but that was my favorite part of the whole game.

Top Tuesday: Favorite Trials In Pokemon Ultra Sun

Happy Tuesday!

While Pokemon Ultra Sun didn’t have any huge differences from Pokemon Sun, there were some slight changes to some of the trials, which I enjoyed much better than the other version.

 

3. Acerola’s Trial

I’m pretty sure this is the same as the trial from Pokemon Sun. However, it was one of my favorites then and it’s a favorite now. I like ghostly things and going through that abandoned area is creepy and keeps you on your toes, especially since you have to use the camera to search for ghosts.

2. Sophocles’s Trial

They really changed this and made it for the better. You have to solve a couple of puzzles in order to get the generator working that calls the Totem Pokemon. While the puzzles are super easy, it was a nice change of pace from everything else.

1. Mina’s Trial

Mina is the last trial you go through and it makes sense why. She wants to make you a special flower for completing all your trials, but you have to collect rainbow petals for her to create it. In order to get these petals, you must go back to the other captains and battle them. If you will, they’ll give you a petal. While I was disappointed this trial had nothing to do with Mina herself, I enjoyed that I had to go back and battle everyone. Battling is Pokemon, after all.

Top Tuesday: Favorite Kingdoms In Super Mario Odyssey

Happy Tuesday!

Hype from Super Mario Odyssey has gone down a little bit. I haven’t had a chance to go back to the game and find the rest of the moons, but I did want to talk about some of my favorite levels from the game.

5. Cap Kingdom

This kingdom isn’t very large and, especially in the beginning of the game, you don’t do too much here. Still, I think it’s a cool place. It’s unique as far as Mario games go and I enjoy the atmosphere.

4. Bowser’s Kingdom

Bowser levels are usually one of my favorites in Mario games. While I enjoyed this one, it didn’t make it too high on the list. It was certainly different and not at all what I expected. I missed the lava pits, but it was a cool level anyway. The music was excellent.

3. Snow Kingdom

This was a pretty level. I especially loved the many doors you could go through to get to smaller levels within the main level. Also, crushing the snow was the most satisfying thing ever.

2. Sand Kingdom

I’m not one for the desert levels, though this didn’t feel like a typical Mario desert. The Sand Kingdom is the second main kingdom and it’s so big that it’s almost overwhelming. But I felt like I was playing Breath of the Wild again because it was so open and there were so many things to do. Of course, the other kingdoms were big as well, but the Sand Kingdom felt the biggest and had the most stuff to do.

1. Mushroom Kingdom

Call me cliche, but I really enjoyed the throwback to Super Mario 64. The way they did the castle and the outside were awesome as well as the music and the various paintings that you could find and hop into.

Top Tuesday: Favorite Levels In Super Mario 64

Happy Tuesday!

With so much hype for Super Mario Odyssey, I’ve been thinking about Super Mario 64. The two games are similar, yet vastly different. I enjoy both games, but I do miss playing Super Mario 64.

 

Top Tuesday, Super Mario 64 Levels

5. Bob-omb Battlefield

I think this level is one of my favorites by default. It’s the first level of the game and can be considered the easiest, but I think it has a mixture of easy and hard. Flying with the wing cap can be difficult, yet getting the star behind Chain Chomp can take two seconds. Or an hour depending on how well you can get Mario to land that ground-pound.

4. Whomp’s Fortress

This is another level that’s well designed. I especially love this one though merely for the fact that it hands out a lot of coins. I love collecting coins.

3. Tick Tock Clock

This is a very well crafted level. It can be tricky with so many high places to jump up to, but I think it’s awesome that they have the cogs work at a certain speed depending on what time you jump into the clock to enter the level.

2. Lethal Lava Land

Um, there’s fire and a volcano. So it’s cool.

1. Big Boo’s Haunt

I always love the Boo mansions in any of the Mario games. They’re tricky with twists and turns and I just find the levels to overall be well designed because they’re supposed to be spooky and hard. While this particular level in Super Mario 64 isn’t that difficult, I still enjoy the design and the music.
