My Top 10 Wii U Games

Ahh…the Wii U, one of my favorite consoles of all time, and yet woefully ignored by consumers and developers alike. Some of the best games I have ever played are out on this console, and it’s hard to pick 10, but I did my best. Of the 88 games I own for the console, I have only played 69 of them. But here are the best of those ones…

 

#10

mario kart 8

Mario Kart 8

Nintendo

2014

This is one of the best in the series, with a wide array of characters, customizable carts and actually reasonably priced dlc that gives you a lot of content. I’ve played this for many, many hours. The new anti grav tracks don’t really add anything to the game, but it’s a cool idea nonetheless.

 

#9

rayman legends

Rayman Legends

Ubisoft Montpellier/ Ubisoft

2013

This is one of the best platformers I have ever played. Excellent level design, fast paced action, andjust a whole array of weird stuff going on. Tons of unlockable skins for different characters to play as, satisfying challenge. It’s just great all around.

 

#8

yoshis wooly world

Yoshi’s Wooly World

Good-Feel/ Nintendo

2015

Speaking of great platformers, this is another one. The yarn or wool world looks incredible and it’s fun how you interact with it. Finding a ton of collectables in each stage kept me playing for hours. There are so many different Yoshis to explore the incredibly clever and fun levels with and fight  the wacky bosses that fill the world.

wonderful 101

The Wonderful 101

PlatinumGames/ Nintendo

2013

This game sadly seemed to go completely under the radar. I feel like there was no advertising at all. And this is a travesty, for it is a truly unique and excellent action game with great humor and gameplay, in the spirit of Viewitful Joe.

 

#6

smash bros 4

Super Smash Bros For Wii U

Bandai-Namco Games/ Nintendo

2014

Aside from having the coolest cover art of all time, this game comes with some truly great additions in levels and especially characters. A lot of characters got changes made to them too which is nice. There is plenty to do in this game, but getting everything is very tedious, especially farming for the newly added alternative special moves each character has. The board game single player is pretty fun. The game seems a bit lacking however, due to how big brawl was. They can only make it so much bigger. Though it is obvious they put everything they have into this game…and it’s Smash Bros…so it’s timeless fun.

 

#5

bayo2

Bayonetta 2

PlatinumGames/ Nintendo

2016

In short, this is one of the best action games ever made. Far better than the first one.

 

#4

super mario maker

Super Mario Maker

Nintendo

2015

This is one of the greatest ideas of all time. Giving players the ability to create their own Mario levels with a ton of ways to do so? Wowee! You could literally play this game the rest of your life, enjoying the millions of stages others have created or just building your own. Some levels are genius, others, not so much. But one things for sure, it’s a whole lot of fun. The one downside is you can only upload 10 levels unless people “like” your levels a whole lot of times, then you can add more. If none get liked enough, they are removed from online, which kind of takes the fun out of making levels, though I see why this is necessary.

 

#3

nsmbu

New Super Mario Bros. U

Nintendo

2012

They finally stopped f’ing around with the “New” series with this game. This is the first time the platformers could really live up to the old SMW and SMB3. Super creative levels, cool new items and a huge world make this one to remember.

 

#2

windwakerhd

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

HexaDrive/ Nintendo

2013

This remaster basically took a great game, removed all it’s flaws and turned it into one of the best Zelda games of all time.

 

#1

super_Mario_3D_World

Super Mario 3D World

Nintendo

2013

This game is simply jaw dropping. It gave us everything I could have hoped for. The cat suit is strangely awesome, the levels, gameplay, 4 playable characters…all just incredible.

 

There you have it…10 incredible games among a whole library of them.

Nintendo Is About To Do To The Fighting Genre, What It Did To The Online Shooter

Back in May 2015, Nintendo released a game for the Wii U by the name of Splatoon. This is primarily a 4v4 online shooter, but instead of the main goal being to just kill as many people as possible, your objective is to paint, or “ink” rather, as much of the map as possible with the use of paint buckets, guns, paint brushes and rollers. There are a ton of weapons as well as gear, which boosts your abilities.

Image result for splatoon

The most unique part is your character can turn into a squid and move quickly through the cover of your own ink. Sounds pretty original, right? Well that’s because it is absolutely one of a kind. And it is easily the most fun online game I have ever played. I hate online shooters, I really do, but the moment I saw this, I couldn’t wait to play it, and I still play it all the time, two years later. It’s unique take on the genre, colorful art style and superb gameplay has really revolutionized the genre in a way.

Now here we are in 2017, the Switch has been released, and on June 16th, we are getting a brand new ip from Nintendo once again. Again it is for a genre I am not very fond of…fighting.

But Nintendo has given this genre their own bit of flair and have produced something that looks to be quite extraordinary, colorful, unique, content packed and extremely addicting. I of course am talking about Arms, the game where a bunch of unique and interesting characters with extendable arms beat the crap out of each other with a wide variety of…boxing glovish things called arms.

Needless to say, nothing has ever been done remotely close to this game, and it looks absolutely amazing. Again, a game in a genre I show little to no interest in has me barely able to contain my excitement! I am sure this is going to be the best fighting game ever, (in my opinion) just as Splatoon is my favorite shooter.

Nintendo just keep proving that they can take any genre, especially ones they really have never dabbled in before and produce something unexpected, unique, and most important of all, fun.

But don’t take my word for it, especially since the game is not even out yet and I am really just making an awful lot of assumptions. But check out this Nintendo Direct. It will show you practically everything you need to know.

As a bonus, this summer Splatoon 2 is coming out, and that looks to do nothing but take the perfection of the first game and make it better. Be sure to check that out as well!

Tournament Of Hotties: Power Rangers Round 2 (Part 2)

Welcome back to the Tournament of Hotties: Power Rangers. Check out round 1 here and round 2 part 1 here to catch yourself up.

Now that you’re all caught up, let’s get to the ladies, to find the final women to make it onto round 3!

Sixth Match

Tori (Ninja Storm)

VS

Kira (Dino Thunder)

This is an interesting match up. Both Tori and Kira, while undeniably good looking women, failed to catch my interest in their respective seasons. But when they both make appearances in later seasons, they both were smoking hot.

They really are just beautiful in these pictures. I don’t know what happened, but their looks increased tenfold. They are both super hot.It makes me wonder what I didn’t see in them in their actual seasons. Maybe those extra years is all it took for them to fully develop into the gorgeous gals they are here.

But which is hotter?

Honestly, this is pretty tough, but I am going to have to go with Tori. She looks hotter in both pictures here, the top one a perfect still of her looking super sexy by accident.Plus, she is often in a bathing suit, and if you read in round 1, I sort of fell in love with her body at that point. And that is all the edge she needs to move on to round 3! Though a round of applause for Kira for getting so much better looking!

Victor-Tori

Such a great body…

 

Seventh Match

Syd (S.P.D.)

VS

Madison (Mystic Force)

The self obsessed hottie versus the kind hearted cutie! Talking about Syd, she does a lot to make herself look great, and it pays off. She seems to get hotter and hotter as the show progresses. I started with no real interest in her, but by the end of the season I was drooling over her. She just screams “hot and sexy!” Look how good she looks in that S.P.D. shirt. Her nice rack just split that P in half to make lucky onlookers very happy. In addition to a nice upstairs, her downstairs is also very nice, and it sure is great to look at. I can’t stop looking at her picture…

Madison is very attractive as well, with beautiful long hair, a pretty face and such a cute smile. She is much more reserved and yet selfless compared to Syd, and quite frankly, is much better girlfriend material. She is such a sweetheart, and you always hope something good happens to her when you watch, because such a beautiful and sweet girl deserves such.

So who will move on? Well…this is a tournament of hotties, which Syd has nailed down. Madison is a looker for sure, but she is cute and not so much hot. Syd just sizzles her right out of the pan.

Victor-Syd

She’s still getting hotter to me

Eighth Match

Ronny (Operation Overdrive)

VS

Lily (Jungle Fury)

This is a competition between hotties if I ever saw one. Both these girls are smokin’. Perfect faces, perfect skin, perfect bodies. They are just out of this world hot.

Ronny is an energetic girl with tons of hotness surging out of her, leaving fella’s to stare after her in her wake. There is just something super sexy about her.

Lily had it pretty easy in round 1 against Fran, so how does she do against the super hot Ronny? As I said in round 1, she is a master of being both cute and hot.

The picture to the left you just want to hug her and have a fun time with her, like the two guys who are lucky enough to be dancing behind her. On the right picture, you still want to hug her but in a much more…passionate way I guess you could say. It takes a lot to stand up to Ronny and actually be hotter than her, but Lily’s hair, face and smile have her beat. Both these girls could have a shot at winning, so it is sad to see them clash in only round 2!

Victor-Lily

Such an innocent dance move and Lily makes it scream sexy. And this is just a still photo. Imagine seeing her dancing in the actual show…

Ninth Match

Summer (RPM)

VS

Emily (Samurai/Super Samurai)

This is a clash between two yellow rangers who at the beginning I did not find very attractive.

Image result for summer landsdownSummer is a pretty girl, but even now, she doesn’t do much for me. She has a great body, you can tell she does under that leather jacket, and she looks great in her jeans. There is a nice booty hiding under there for sure. But again, nothing really exciting about her, at least for me…

 

Emily on the other hand, started off to me as nothing special, but she grew on me a lot. Like now I find everything about her so sexy and hot. I mean she looks great in the above picture. Super sexy. She is also adorable. Like Lily, she can be both hot and cute. This combined with her innocent, sweet personality makes her one hottie that is tough to compete against.

Victor-Emily

Luckily for anyway who thinks this girl is a knockout, her training outfit hugs her body in just the right places. It’s a shame we can’t see behind her…

 

Tenth Match

Gia (MegaForce/Super MegaForce)

VS

Kendall (Dino Charge/ Dino Super Charge)

Here we are at the final match of round 2! Now we have two of the women from the last two Power Rangers series, as of right now anyway. And both of them are quite beautiful.

I ranted about how cute, gorgeous, sexy, hot and beautiful Gia is in round 1 and even showed you a picture of her in a bikini (no regrets). She really is like a perfect woman. There isn’t a downside about her.

Kendall is also quite beautiful and looks like she can be both hot and cute as well. She is even rocking the sexy lab tech look, which is all good in my book. Having not watched her series, I don’t know much about her, other than the fact that she is very good looking and I probably wouldn’t mind a night out with her. But even though she is gorgeous, it would take a mighty fine specimen to compete with Gia, who is just gushing out everything that would attract men and women alike to her. Sorry Kendall, you’re hot, but not that hot.

Victor-Gia

If someone who looked like this was about to beat me down, it would be the best day of my life. Look how kissable those lips are!

That’s it for round 2! We’ve narrowed it down to 10 quarter finalists. This round was hard enough, it’s going to sure be tough to pick which of these beauties moves on from there.

Tournament Of Hotties: Power Rangers Round 1 (Part 4)

Welcome to the final part of Round 1. We will finally see all the gorgeous gals that will advance to round 2! Check out parts 1, 2 and 3 if you missed them to see the entire first round.

 

Power Rangers Operation Overdrive

Ronny VS Rose

First off in this new season is the yellow ranger Ronny. And she is absolutely hot, a real babe if you will. Viewers wouldn’t think of complaining anytime she was on screen, even if she had her lucky socks that she never washed, her looks easily wash everything else on screen away.

Rose is also an attractive girl. She isn’t hot like Ronny, but she is cute and also nothing to object to when on screen. Though when pitted against Ronny, her looks couldn’t hope to stand a chance. But here’s to having two good looking rangers again!

Victor-Ronny

Power Rangers Jungle Fury

This is yet another season where there is only one female ranger. There is another female role that has a pretty large part however, so we will use her.

Lily VS Fran

 

Okay, so first we have Lily, the kindhearted, absolutely beautiful Cheetah Ranger. And when I say absolutely beautiful, that is an understatement. This girl has the rare gift of being extremely cute and hot at the same time. And what makes it better is she is a complete sweetheart, always so kind and optimistic. She is gorgeous whenever she is on screen, no matter what she is wearing. She even looks amazing in her pizza place uniform. She has a great body, wonderful facial features, and outstanding, long flowing hair. She even likes to dance, so viewers are treated to that I think twice in the series, and while they are not that provocative at all, she makes them seem superbly sexy, even doing one of them with another random hottie.

Fran, on the other hand…well just look at her. How could she ever compete with Lily? Though, she is a fun character to watch.

Victor-Lily

Evil-Yellow-Jungle-Fury-Ranger
Oh, how I wish I was that fork right now…

Power Rangers RPM

Yet another series of rangers, this time having seven all together. Of those seven, only two are women.

 Summer VS Gemma

Summer is the only original female ranger, as this season starts off with only three rangers. She falls right into that category of “I have no idea why I don’t find her attractive.” Because let’s be honest. She really is a great looking woman, without a doubt. Yet she failed to catch my interest while watching the show.

Gemma comes in much later in the show, as the first ever female Silver Ranger. While she is hilarious to watch with her twin brother Gem/Gold Ranger, her looks are not that favorable. When she is pictured up there next to Summer, it really makes Summer’s beauty that I failed to miss watching the show stand out, and that is why Gemma will not move on to round 2.

Victor-Summer

 

Power Rangers Samurai/Super Samurai

Back to two starting female rangers. Let’s check them out.

 Emily VS Mia

Emily is like Syd was, as in she blatantly is very attractive, but at first I failed to notice. Only after watching the show for a while did her tight, petite body really catch my interest, as well as her beautiful face and hair eventually growing on me. And man, did she look great in her training gi.

Mia is not so great. She looks good in the picture above, and a few times in the show she was quite pretty, but for the most part, her looks were not that great, though better than her cooking!

Victor-Emily

 

 

Power Rangers Megaforce/Super Megaforce

For a season where the rangers can transform into any of the previous rangers, it really is not that great, or I was just completely burnt out from Power Rangers by this time. But this show did something somehow every other season has failed to do, and that is produce two female rangers who are drop. dead. gorgeous. Not since Kat and Tanya, or Taylor and Alyssa have two hotties been paired up, and these two blow those pairs away.

Gia VS Emma

It is a shame that these two girls must face each other. Each of them is absolutely beautiful. They both have a good shot at winning this tournament, yet one must fall so early.

Let’s start with the wonderful Gia. She dons tight black pants and a leather jacket usually, which only a few times you see her without, revealing the yellow tank-top under it, which makes her look way hotter.Her face is perfect, as well as her blonde hair. Every time she talks or moves in the show, it just seems so sexy. But the best thing about her is that smile. It just makes your heart melt and then evaporate. It is one of the best smiles I have ever seen. She also has that rare gift of being both hot and cute at the same time, though definitely leaning towards hot, and I mean really hot…

Emma stands proudly up there, refusing to be out shined by that blonde hair and radiant smile. Her brown hair is just as perfect, and she wears small pink shorts like no one else.Her face, eyes, lips, smile and especially her body make her one extremely hot cookie. Like Gia, she too is both incredibly cute and hot, though this time, Emma leans more towards the cute side, though my god she is hot.

I hate to pair them up like this, for they are seemingly such good friends in real life and the show.

And hotter in each picture than the last.

ciara_hanna_and_christina_masterson_hypnotized_by_saintzero91-d7nilqv
It felt a crime not to show off these two beautie’s bodies…so here ya go

Okay so time for the part I have been avoiding. Where I have to pick one to advance. In the beach picture, Gia has a slightly better body (note that both are fantastic bodies), but Emma has a sexier bikini, so that doesn’t help matters. The close ups of their faces further above, Gia shines brightly, but the one next to that where they are wearing dresses, Emma looks breathtaking. But okay, enough stalling. I must judge how they look in the show, and for being just a downright sexy babe, this one wins.

Victor-Gia

Seriously…that smile

 

Power Rangers Dino Charge/Dino Super Charge

Okay. this is the final bout of round 1! And I don’t really know what to expect myself, since I have never watched this season. But upon research, there is like countless power rangers in Dino Super Charge, but only one female ranger in both seasons, one more added in the second season.

Shelby VS Kendall

For the other rangers, I judged on their looks throughout the show. As I can not do this for this season, I am going off by just pictures I have seen of each character.

Shelby is not the prettiest girl I’ve ever laid eyes on, but she does rock jean shorts pretty well. Though I’m not that impressed with her.

Kendall seems to be some Ms. Fairweather-like girl turned ranger, and the purple one, one I had always wanted along with orange since I was a small child watching the very first season when it came out. And like Ms. Fairweather, she is beautiful. She too is hindered by lab coats and nice clothing, but the low cut shirt in the above picture is some bonus points. And its orange! She’s got a gorgeous face, and a great smile, and beautiful hair as well. An easy win.

Victor-Kendall

She reminds me a lot of Felicity from Arrow

 

And there you have it! All the contestants have battled it out with their hotness. 20 girls have advanced to round 2! Check it out when it comes out!
