Playing with Redflare (Yoshi), TJ (as himself), and Little Miss (Rosalina) can get super brutal. (I was Luigi).
TJ, this time around, had a pair of epic plays. First with a bomb right at the ramp…
And then an airborne banana peel.
Redflare ultimately won the match, in spite of the bomb and banana.
Some parents look forward to their kids going back to school.
For Redflare and me we don’t really because it means these later night games have to wait until only the weekends since everybody has to get up earlier.
A while back there was a “Nintendo Humble Bundle” at the humble bundle site.
A surprise favorite for me was “Freedom Planet.”
Something that inspired a chuckle was when the character I selected to be the main one said this.
When I play this game I think of a good Sonic game.
As a gamer dad, naturally the kids want to copy what I’m doing. Each has had their own preferences as the console generations move on.
Christmas brought a few more amiibo and the really cool amiibo display steps (the 3D chess board on the right is our other display).
We haven’t jumped hugely into the amiibo scene, but we have grabbed the characters of significance for us, and that’s the important thing for me on the amiibo collection front.
One Christmas a long time ago my cousin and I both got Earthbound for Christmas.
It was a big, weirdly shaped box since inside was not only the game itself but a player’s guide.
It’s why I’m so happy to report that I’ve managed to get the Ness amiibo and add him to the Mario Party characters I’ve managed to secure.
I am not a crazy amiibo collector. I don’t “need” to “catch them all” as it were. I just go for those characters that hold special emotional significance.
So this is a little out of order, but one evening we all enjoyed a game of Mario Kart with Nana and Aunt Ann.
Thunderer’s engagement wasn’t very high. :p
This Mario Kart didn’t manage to make her motion sick like the old SNES version we played when I was growing up.
So we start out with Redflare landing on Little Miss’ green shell… and then immediately getting revenge.
After that Redflare enjoys hammering poor TJ with red shell after red shell.
It just wasn’t his day.
