Top Tuesday: Most Wanted Nintendo Switch Games

Happy Tuesday!

I’m pretty sure I’ve talked about this before way back when the Nintendo Switch came out (it’s already been seven months… wow!), but I wanted to talk about some games that I hope will come to the console in the near future.

Top Tuesday: Most Wanted Games for the Nintendo Switch

4. Luigi’s Mansion

I would love to have a third Luigi’s Mansion game, but at this point, I wouldn’t even care if they remade the first one and maybe added a little to it. I love the Gamecube and, at the time, the graphics were awesome, but I would love to see Luigi on the TV with Switch graphics!

3. Animal Crossing

New Leaf came out for the 3DS in 2012. That’s a long time ago! Sure, they’ve come out with Happy Home Designer and Amiibo Festival since then, but… I want a new game. And now that I have the New 2DS XL, I wouldn’t care if they put it on there. Still, I would love to see it on the Switch, on my TV.

2. Pokemon

Give me something. Anything. I prefer a main game, but I’ll take any sort of Pokemon. And yes, I know there’s Pokken Tournament DX, but like I said I want a main game. And, I think that’s what they’re working on, but it’d be nice to have some updates on it.

1. Super Smash Brothers

I can’t believe that they haven’t officially announced this yet. I say officially because we all believe that’s what Reggie said in his blurred-beeped-out speech during the Nintendo World Championship. I’m down for a brand new Smash game or a deluxe version. Like all the other games, I just want to see it on the Switch.

Top Tuesday: Favorite Breath Of The Wild Shrines

Happy Tuesday!

Kris and I finally got all 120 shrines in Breath of The Wild! This was no easy feat for us and now that we’ve seen all the puzzles, I thought I’d talk about my favorite ones.

 

5. Blessings

The Blessings were some of my favorite shrines mostly because they were usually hidden. I loved exploring the open world so it was so satisfying to come across a hidden shrine.

4. Twin Memories

This is two shrines, the Shee Vaneer Shrine in the Dueling Peaks tower region. All you have to do is visit both and remember what you see and put an orb inside certain holes. It’s like a memory game and I enjoyed that.

3. Bravery’s Grasp

This is the Ishto Sho Shrine in the Wastelands tower region. This one is all about timing and using the tools you have (Stasis) to solve the puzzle. I enjoyed the ones that needed good timing skills. It can be a lot of waiting, but they’re clever nonetheless.

2. A Major Test of Strength

I loved all the tests of strengths. The major ones the best because they were, of course, harder. I especially loved when we came across these shrines in the beginning of the game because it was hilarious watching Kris try to beat them.

1. Shrine Quests

Some of the shrine quests were blessings, but some had puzzles on the inside. My favorite part about these were that they were hidden by a riddle or just were not in plain sight at all. You really had to work to find them and it allowed you to explore parts of the land you hadn’t been to yet.

Did you find all 120 shrines? What were your favorite puzzles? Let me know in the comments below and we’ll chat!

Top Tuesday: Favorite Donkey Kong Family Members

Happy Tuesday!

Today I thought I’d talk about something a little random, something that most people probably haven’t thought about in a while.

 

Top tuesday: favorite Donkey Kong family members

Donkey Kong is obviously a great character and a favorite of mine, but I kept him off this list because he’s such an obvious choice for this list.

5. Funky Kong

According to the logic of little-kid-Rachel, Funky Kong was cool because one, his name was Funky. Two, he talked cool and had a surfboard with a plane.

4. Tiny Kong

I have to admit that Tiny Kong is a bit hard for me to remember. I didn’t play Donkey Kong 64 all that much but, like Dixie, I enjoyed being able to play as a girl. And, for some reason, I always felt close to her because she could shrink. And I’m short. That was, again, little-kid-Rachel logic way back when.

3. Cranky Kong

How can you not love him? I think my favorite part of Cranky Kong is the beginning of Donkey Kong Country before the game even starts when he throws a bomb at Donkey Kong for dancing. It’s one of my favorite opening sequences of all time.

2. Diddy Kong

I have to admit, I was surprised I didn’t put Diddy in the number one spot. He’s near and dear to my heart. Diddy is a wonderful character whether he’s by Donkey Kong’s side, starring in his own game, or beating people up in Smash Brothers. Still, there’s one thing that he can not do.

1. Dixie Kong

Yes, Diddy has his jetpack, but Dixie can fly. With her hair. Dixie was always a favorite of mine. I was pleased to see a playable girl in Diddy’s Kong Quest. She was a great addition and… well, her hair. She has nice hair.

Top Tuesday: Favorite Sidekick Characters

Happy Tuesday!

I have to admit, I still have Pokemon on the brain, so it took me a little while to figure out what I wanted to talk about for today’s list.

It’s a tad on the random side, but it’s video game related, so… there you go.

5. Tails

Tails from the Sonic the Hedgehog series is a great character. He’s like a little brother to Sonic, but is a great friend who also knows what’s he’s doing. He’s smart, can think quickly, and can fly. He’s the kind of character that the hero would be lost without.

4. Diddy Kong

Diddy Kong is a character who isn’t mentioned that often. I think most people forget about him pretty easily because they’re more focused on Donkey Kong. Yes, he’s stronger, but Diddy was always faster and… I just always preferred him for some reason.

3. Luigi

Some people may not consider Luigi a sidekick, but that’s how he originally started. He was always there to help or cheer on his big brother Mario from the sidelines. He even has his own game where he saves Mario… you can’t get a better sidekick than that.

2. Navi

People rag on Navi from the Legend of Zelda series because she’s “annoying” or “bossy” or whatever. Still, I always enjoyed her and she stuck around poor little Link as an adult and a child, which is pretty special, especially since he wasn’t a typical Kokiri.

1. Fi

I didn’t plan on having two characters from the same series, but I had to put Navi on the list and Fi… well, Fi is pretty awesome too. She’s Link’s sidekick in Skyward Sword as she is his sword. She’s the Master Sword and the game Skyward Sword is considered the first in the Legend of Zelda timeline. Which means… well, the way I see it, Fi is in every single Zelda game aiding Link along the way. If that’s not commitment, I don’t know what is.

Top Tuesday: Favorite Legendary Pokemon

Happy Tuesday!

It’s time for another quick top list.

Who’s your favorite legendary Pokemon?

5. Latios & Latias

Right away, I’m cheating. But Latios and Latias are a set, so I’d be crazy to just list one of them. Both Dragon- and Psychic-types from the Hoenn region and star in the Pokemon: Heroes movie, which is a great movie. I think that’s why I love these two so much.

4. Rayquaza

Also from the Hoenn region, Rayquaza is a Dragon- and Flying-type. I’ve never actually used him before, but he’s majestic and wonderful. And I really like his design.

3. Xerneas

Xerneas… a majestic Fairy-type from the Kalos region. He’s powerful and he too has a cool design. I love him as a Pokemon, but I mainly love the fact that his antlers look like they glow in the dark.

2. Solgaleo

A Psychic- and Steel-type from the Alola region, I absolutely love Solgaleo. He’s powerful, like most legendaries, but I especially love him because I love lions. No, they’re not my favorite animal, but I when I was younger and thought I’d be going to Professor Xavier’s X-Men Institute, I figured my powers would be to transform into a lion.

1. Entei

Going all the way back to Johto, where my journey officially began, Entei is my favorite out of the legendary trio. This is mainly because he’s a Fire-type, but also because I loved him in the movie, Spell of the Unown.

Top Tuesday: Favorite Pokemon Regions

Happy Tuesday!

It’s time for another top list and it’s pretty simple this week.

 

Top Tuesday: Favorite Pokemon Regions

While this was super hard to narrow down the seven regions into five and then try to put them in order, I came to this conclusion.

5. Alola

Alola is the latest region of the Pokemon world. I enjoyed it, I had a lot of fun, the islands were a cool aspect of it. Still, it’s not my favorite. It was different, which wasn’t a bad thing. But there were a lot of changes to the games and even though I liked those changes, things just weren’t the same. I miss the way everything else used to be. Though I loved being in that area, it’s not my number one region choice.

4. Kanto

The place that started it all. Normally I would have this be in the number one spot. It has a lot of fond memories and familiar towns, but this is a region I never really played through. When Kanto came out, I was too young to play the games myself. I watch Kris play and I watched the anime, but I never played them myself until years later. I love Kanto because it’s nostalgic.

3. Johto

Here is where it all began for me. When the Johto region came out, I was old enough to play the games myself and actually understand them. I played the games and when HeartGold and SoulSilver came out, I devoured through those ones as well.

2. Sinnoh

I know Sinnoh isn’t typically a fan favorite. I don’t understand why, but I’ve heard more people say they didn’t care for Sinnoh as much as the other regions. I think Barry was a big part of that, even though I quite enjoyed him as a character. But Pearl was the first game I ever completed. I also got the farthest on it with my Pokedex as well. It will always have a special place in my heart.

1. Kalos

The Kalos region was the closest region I had to Sinnoh. I completed X in two days and I’ve almost completed my Pokedex in full. (One of these days I’ll do it… I swear!) I enjoyed all the brand new animations and features of the game. Kalos was a fun place to visit.

Top Tuesday: Favorite Gamecube Games

Happy Tuesday!

A few weeks ago I talked about my favorite 3DS games, so I thought I’d talk about another console I love.

 

5. Sonic Adventure 2 Battle

This is a terrible game, Kris and I had so much fun playing it together. My favorite part was the Chao garden more so than the actual game, but it was still a lot of fun back then.

4. Mario Party 4

This is another game that wasn’t too great. It was my favorite Mario Party for a while, mostly because of the 2V2 mini-games that Kris and I dominated the CPU characters at. It’s not the best Mario Party now, but it’s still a good game.

3. The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures

This is another game Kris and I played a lot together. I usually watch her play Zelda games, but I often played this one with her. She would battle while I picked up the force gems afterward. We had a lot of fun.

2. Animal Crossing

The original Animal Crossing games was one of the best. I never 100% the game, but I did completely pay off my debt and I felt as though that was a huge accomplishment. Now if only it were that easy in real life.

1. Luigi’s Mansion

Luigi is one of my favorite characters. I was so excited when I found out that there was going to be a game for him. A haunted mansion was involved too, which was really cool and different for a Mario-type game. It’s not just my favorite Gamecube game, but one of my all-time favorite games.
