Top Tuesday: Favorite Mini Games In Super Mario Party

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

I’ve been playing Super Mario Party so much lately. There are about 80 new mini-games in the game so I thought I’d talk about some of my favorites.

5. Net Worth

This is one of the four-player cooperative games from the River Survival mode. It’s a four-player game where you all have to work together instead of against each other. You all hold a fishing net and when a bunch of Cheep Cheep come swimming by you have to collectively pull your Joy-Con up to lift the net. This is a lot more fun when playing with other people because you have to actually communicate. It’s satisfying to get a lot of Cheep Cheep as well.

4. Bumper Brawl

This is a crazy version of Bumper Balls from Mario Party 2. The difference is that there will most likely always be a winner. This is a four-player ally mini-game which means it’s every man for himself but you have the help of your allies (should you be lucky enough to have any). The sound effects for this game is great as you’re all in hamster-like balls. Depending how many allies are on the board as well this game gets pretty crazy which is a lot of fun.

3. Absent Minded

This is a “quiz” from Toadette. It’s a four-player mini game. There are three rounds where you’re given three pictures and then have to choose which picture is missing from the big one. The pictures will pixelate slowly on screen or flash real quick throughout the screen. It’s a clever game and harder than it seems.

2. Rattle and Hmmm

This one is similar to Absent Minded except instead of seeing it’s about feeling. It’s another four-player mini game where Toadette “quizzes” you. There are three rounds of three characters doing something on screen and each one has a unique rumble you feel in the Joy-Con. The curtain closes, a rumble happens, and you have to guess who made the rumble. This is another one that’s not as easy as it seems.

1. Slaparazzi

Yet another four-player game and this is the best one, especially if you’re playing with three other people in real life. A Koopa has a camera and tries to get many different angles of you and your friends. You have to try to be the center of attention which means punching your friends out of the way. Once Koopa takes the photo, the picture is shown on screen. The pictures that come out – the poses and faces of the characters – are absolutely hilarious and well done. There are more than five rounds for this game too which is nice so you can really have a lot of fun with it.

Top Tuesday: Favorite Spooky Games

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday & October!

With the Fall officially here and Halloween around the corner, I though I’d talk about some spooky games I’ve played… well, the term “spooky” is used loosely.

Favorite Spooky Games to play | Top Tuesday | video games | gaming | horror games | suspenseful games | DoublexJump.com

Take this list with a grain of salt. I don’t play horror games for a reason and some of these games aren’t even in the horror genre. Though I felt they were spooky enough.

3. Hello Neighbor

I’m already cheating on the first game. I’ve never actually played this one myself. I’ve seen a lot of other people play it though and… the story can be pretty unsettling. The learning AI and the premise is pretty spooky and this is technically a stealth horror game.

2. James Noir’s Hollywood Crimes

I’ve played this game for the Nintendo DS a couple of times and have even given it a review. This is a simple puzzle game and there isn’t too much to the story. However, you’re up against a psychopath and even get put into jail and have to escape. While the consequences aren’t that great, the game makes it seem like the stakes are high. When I first played it a long time ago, it kind of creeped me out.

1. Luigi’s Mansion

You should have seen this one coming. This is one of my favorite games. When I first played Luigi’s Mansion on the Gamecube way back in the day, I had a hard time playing it because our gaming systems were hooked up in the basement. I also couldn’t play it when I was home alone or when it was dark out. The cartoon ghosts spooked me despite how much I enjoyed the game. I pushed through the fear though!

Top Tuesday: Games I Play Over And Over

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

I was pretty excited from the latest Nintendo Direct. There were a lot of games that I’m looking forward to but some that I know I’ll play over and over again just like I have with the games before it.

Top Tuesday | Games I Play Over and Over | Video Games | Gaming | Nintendo | Nintendo Direct | DoublexJump.com

3. Luigi’s Mansion

This is a favorite of mine and one that I’ve played a few times. This is a game where I feel like I need to be in the mood to play it, but I always get excited for it and into it. Now that Luigi’s Mansion 3 has finally been announced, I can’t wait to play a brand new spin on the series. Plus, I can’t wait to get a hold of the original game for the 3DS and play with a friend… as weird as green Luigi may seem.

2. Animal Crossing

It’s no secret how much I love Animal Crossing. I definitely go in spurts with that game but I’ve gone back to it time and time again. While the real time can be annoying if you haven’t played in a year, I love being able to just pick back up where I left off. Or, wipe our my town and start from scratch… though I don’t like doing that. I’m sure I’ll be playing the new game over and over for a long time.

1. Pokemon

While this wasn’t talked about much at the recent Direct, I’m still super excited for the Let’s Go games and also the new core game that will be out next year. Though we still don’t know anything about that game yet. Either way, I know I’ll be trying my hardest to complete my Pokedexes and catch them all.

Now all I need is a new Paper Mario game and I’ll be good to go.

Top Tuesday: Favorite Nintendo Controllers

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.com Happy Tuesday and September!

I don’t know what made me think of this the other day, but controllers are such a big part of playing games and I decided to talk about my favorite controllers from Nintendo consoles.

3. Nintendo 64 Controller

There’s always some sort of debate on how to hold this controller. I’ll admit, I always held onto the middle and right side because my hands were too small otherwise. In fact, they were pretty small no matter how I held the controller. So, why is this one on my favorites list? Because it’s unique and cool looking. That’s pretty much all there is to it.

2. Gamecube Controller

It’s not a classic controller, no, but whenever I think of a “game controller” the Gamecube one pops into my head. This one has always been the most comfortable and Kris and I used to have certain ones that had grips where you held it. So I always liked that.

1. Nintendo Switch’s Joy-Con

I feel like not many people will agree with me on this one. I was skeptical of the Joy-Con at first for sure. They certainly don’t look like a “game controller.” However, I love the ability to have one or two united. I also love being able to do other things with my hands while I play. I can sit with my arms crossed and play whatever game. But the biggest reason this is number one for me is because they’re small. I have baby hands and the Joy-Con fit me perfectly. It’s so comfortable. Anything to help me play games easier is a win for me.

Favorite Types Of Merch To Collect [Top Tuesday]

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

I bought more Pokemon cards the other day. And I want more. I always want more. I love collecting things, especially things I don’t really use and that has to do with video games. Thus, this Top Tuesday post.

3. Figurines/Stuffed Animals

I love stuffed animals. I had a nice collection of figurines too. I have so much and no place to put them all that I haven’t gotten any in a while. However, someday, when I have money, I’m buying every single Pokemon figurine and stuffed animal there is. Also, Mario, Zelda, Sonic… anything and everything.

2. Game Guides

I’ve talked about this before, a long time ago. I love getting game guides. They’re pretty, they’re helpful, and they’re just something extra to have along with the games. The problem is, I barely have enough room on my bookshelves for my books let alone game guides.

1. Pokemon Cards

Someday I will show off my Pokemon card collection. It’s ever-growing and I try to keep it as organized as I can. I’m currently re-organizing them by region and it’s taking a while. Do I play the game? No. But I’m going to keep collecting them. I’d like to start collecting other cards such as Magic: The Gathering… and actually learn how to play that. Someday.

Top Tuesday: Favorite Bosses In Paper Mario

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

I was thinking of Paper Mario the other day. Why? No idea. But I thought I’d talk about some of my favorite boss battles from the game.

For the sake of everything, I’m not including Bowser because… well, he’s in everything.

3. Lava Piranha

I’ll be honest, there’s nothing too special about this boss fight other than Kolorado busting in every now and then. The Lava Piranha is found on Mt. Lavalava and is kind of a creepy looking dude, but completely awesome at the same time. Plus, fire.

2. Crystal King

This weird guy is found at the Crystal Palace – not to be mistaken for the breakfast buffet in Disney with Winnie the Pooh and friends. He’s the last major boss you fight before heading to battle Bowser. His move set is cool with illusions and the like. I’ve always liked the music and sound effects for him too. I mean, the music all around is good for the whole game, but this one always stood out to me.

1. Koopa Bros.

The very first major boss fight of the game in Koopa Bros. Fortress. These guys are hilarious. They really add a lightheartedness to the game (as if it wasn’t already). Bonus points, they remind me of the Ninja Turtles.

Top Tuesday: Favorite Mario Sports Games

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

Sports games aren’t necessarily something I’m into. Though with some hype (and not so much hype) of Mario Tennis Aces, I thought I’d talk about some of the Mario sports games I have played.

I’ll be honest, I had to look up a list of Mario sports games. As it turns out, I’ve only played about 3 of them. So, there you go… not that into sports games even though they are pretty fun when I play them.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games

I like Mario and I like Sonic. I remember when this game out for the Nintendo Wii in 2007, I was excited to give it a try. I thought it was an interesting take on a sports game and crossing over Mario and Sonic was cool as well. Though, they probably should have stuck to crossing them over in a platformer rather than making them ice skate and sprint.

I don’t remember too much of this game other than I wasn’t that impressed with it. Maybe I’ll give it another try someday just to see.

Mario Super Sluggers

This is a baseball game that came out on the Nintendo Wii in 2008. I remember getting it because I enjoyed the Wii Sports game so much. So mixing that similar game with the Mario characters excited me.

I’ll be honest, I don’t remember too much of it. I don’t think I played it that often. It wasn’t as fun by yourself and Kris wasn’t into the game so no one would play with it. Like the other game, I might play it again soon to revisit it.

Mario Hoops 3 on 3

This basketball game came out for the Nintendo DS way back in 2006. I’ve played this one the most and, if I remember correctly, I was pretty good at it. I don’t remember there being too much to the game but I did play a good amount of it. I remember bringing it to babysitting with me one time when I had a late night ahead of me.

When Nintendo announced Mario Tennis Aces, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to get the game or not. It looked interesting to me and I definitely wouldn’t mind giving it a try. I haven’t gotten the game and I’m not sure if I will anytime soon. In the meantime, if I want to play tennis, I’ll probably turn on Wii Sports again.
