Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

I don’t know why, but I’ve been taking a trip down memory lane lately. Here are my favorite games from the Nintendo 64.

Top Tuesday: Favorite Nintendo 64 Games | Nintendo | Video Games | DoublexJump.com

Pokemon Stadium 2

I loved both games, but the second always stuck out in my head the most. I think it was because the Johto Pokemon were involved so there was more variety and I enjoyed the mini-games more. This is a game I would love to play again soon.

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

While I’ve never played this game myself, I loved watching Kris play when we were kids (and even now). It’s one of the best Zelda games. The dungeons, the music, and even the graphics are all memorable.

Mario Party 2

It’s an old-school Mario Party and it’s the best one. End of story.

Super Mario 64

This is my favorite Mario game ever. The level designs and variety were wonderful, despite me not being very good at the game. I still loved it and the music is catchy and gets stuck in my head all day.

Paper Mario

If you know me, you know if this is my all-time favorite game ever. It’s just fabulous.

Top Favorite Nintendo Home Consoles [Top Tuesday]

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday and first day of May!

I can’t believe we’re already in a new month. Hopefully, the spring weather is here to stay.

5. Nintendo Wii

The Wii will always hold a special place in my heart. While I’m not the number fan of motion controls, they don’t bother me too much. I have many fond memories of playing with the Wii and there were some great games on there such as Mario Kart Wii and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

4. Nintendo Wii U

The Wii U isn’t liked by many and while I know it’s the worst console to have sold ever, I still enjoyed my Wii U and I still enjoy it to this day even though I have my Switch.

3. Nintendo 64

The Nintendo 64 was a gem. The controllers were certainly funky and hard for my small hands to use, but the games were wonderful and the 64 started a lot of trends and had a great selection of games.

2. Nintendo Gamecube

The Gamecube, I believe, is a hit or miss for some. Though I’m pretty sure most of the games I own are for the Gamecube. I remember playing a ton of multiplayer games with friends and family. Also, Luigi’s Mansion.

1. Nintendo Switch

I mean, this is kind of a given. I’ll admit, when the Switch was first announced, I was skeptical. But… Nintendo has really outdone themselves.

Top Tuesday: Favorite Nintendo Wii U Games I Own

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

Since I talked about my favorite Wii games, I thought I’d give a shoutout to my favorite Wii U games.

4. Yoshi’s Woolly World

This game is just so darn cute. It was great to have another platformer starring Yoshi. It’s difficult to play with other people at times (you know, sabotage), but it’s a lot of fun. It’s a game I haven’t played since it first came out and I want to revisit it again.

3. Paper Mario: Color Splash

This was actually a good game, one I want to revisit again. It’s not exactly like the first two Paper Mario games but it’s improved from the three after that… I still shudder thinking about Sticker Star. This one wasn’t bad though and I had a lot of fun with it. It was decently long too, but not too long.

2. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

This is another cute game. It’s short and I certainly wished there were more to it, but it’s a fun, casual puzzle game that you can pick up and play at any time.

1. Mario Kart 8

It’s Mario Kart. A new and improved Mario Kart. That is all.

Top Tuesday: Favorite Nintendo Wii Games I Own

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday and happy April!

I don’t know where you are in the world but it’s still pretty chilly here and I’m not happy about it… all the more reason to stay inside and play games.

4. Wii Fit

This is kind of a weird one to put on the list, I know. But I remember having so much fun with this game. It’s the only time I’ve ever done yoga or strength training of any kind and I actually enjoyed myself. If only I kept up with it… Still, I remember playing the hula-hoop game and just dominating it.

3. Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Do I really need to say anything about this? It’s Smash.

2. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

I hear mixed reviews about Skyward Sword. The motion controls weren’t great, no, but I thought the game was fantastic. The soundtrack was wonderful, the character designs were adorable (I’m looking at you, Pipit), and the overall plot, character development, and area layouts were great.

1. Mario Kart Wii

Similar to Smash, this is Mario Kart. I don’t think I have to explain this one. It’s just great.

Top Tuesday: Indie Games I’m Looking Forward To

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

I’ve been playing through a lot of older games lately, but I’ve been keeping up with the news and Twitter and have noticed a few indie games that are coming out that really piqued my interest!

Indie Games I'm looking forward to | Video games | Gaming | DoublexJump.com

1. Switch or Die Trying by Threye

This is a platformer game that looks extremely hard. The main point is that you’re going to die a lot, but you should get back up and keep trying. You play as “I” and have lost all your friends, the other 25 letters of the alphabet. Your mission begins to find them all through 75 levels. It’s available on Steam and recently just came out for Xbox One.

2. The Cold Case of Noella Bejerot by RockTheClock

This is a visual novel mystery detective game. You play as a rookie “detective” who is afraid of the sight of blood. You solve crimes trying not to faint adding a little more stakes to each investigation. Kris and I played the Demo, which is available now on Itch.io and the full version of the game will be released on April 21, 2018. I’m looking forward to it.

3. Glitched by EnHouseStudios

A choice-based RPG, Glitched is a game where the main character is aware of you, the player. They’re aware of the video game and you two work together to help figure out how his world has glitched. It seems like a fun, twisty, mystery! The demo is available on Itch.io now and the full version will be released this fall.

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.
