Super Mario 3-D World

In one of my previous posts, I had mentioned that the game Super Mario 3-D World is not a game I would have wanted to play. I said this mainly because of the fact that it seemed like another Nintendo sequel and the way it was advertised. I guess that I was wrong about this game. In fact, I think that is the most fun Wii U game that I have.
Let me start with the plot of the game. The story is that Bowser has kidnapped a bunch of weird fairies to do something (I have no idea what he is up to yet…). I know it sounds weird, and it is, but the game makes up for it. You can play as four different characters, Mario, Luigi, Toad, and even Peach. Each of these characters has there own special abilities. The levels are absolutely amazing compared to any of the side scrolling game I have seen. Although you could technically call this a 3-D platformer, it has more of a New Super Mario Bros. style to it as well. Anyways, the levels in this game take a unique style and make the levels a lot more fun. For example, I was not a big fan of desert levels or haunted mansions before, but this game makes those levels seem just as amazing as the others.
There are a few faults with this game that keep it from being my favorite Mario game. First of all, since the characters have their special abilities, they are not equal when it comes to using them. This meaning that some of the characters are not the most useful-ability wise. The best being Luigi in my opinion for best skill and my personally favorite character. Second, this game is actually very easy. You start out with a two-hit kill instead of one, ruining the challenge of having to earn your way back to the position of extra power. However, they add the challenge of having to collect three green stars and a stamp per level. Some of them are in places that you would never expect them to be.
In the end, I would this game is excellent and would give it a 4.5 out of 5 stars on a review. If you have a Wii U, and don’t have this game yet, I highly recommend that you get it.

My 13th Birthday

On January 20, 2014, I officially turned 13 years old. This age is one of the marking points in your life, for this age is when you can do stuff you couldn’t have done before. I no longer have to change the date of my birthday on my e-mail just so I can access it without the site bugging me about it. I no longer have to feel guilty about watching a PG-13 movie because I’m not 13. I can officially call myself a “teenager” and I can do so much more. Although this is a very phenomenal age, I have to say that I did not exactly celebrate it in a phenomenal way. My birthday party was-in a nutshell-lunch and a movie with a couple of my friends. I didn’t exactly watch a movie at a theater, though. Instead, I decided to keep it simple and rent a movie of my friends choice. I kind of liked the simple birthday party idea. But this wasn’t my first choice of a party, though. I thought about going to Main Event for the second time, but that seemed a little too childish. After all, 13 is considered to be the age of a man in some cultures. Paintball was suggested by mom, and that seemed like a good idea, but I realized a flaw for it. I’ve never tried paintball, but I have heard from people who have. From what I heard, you get huge red marks on your skin from paintballs. I didn’t know if that was really true, but I didn’t want to risk having a big red mark on my back as a birthday present. That was all my options, so I decided to keep my party nice and simple. Anyways, I hope that after the age of 13, I’ll be able to make it through the awkward stages of being a teenager. If you haven’t had your 13th birthday, then I hope you spend yours in an excellent way. I sure enjoyed mine.

Why Mario is a Cool Character

A lot of people know who Mario is. In fact, I think every one knows who he is (at least if they know video games). A lot of people my age like games like Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Halo, but don’t give Mario a chance. I ‘m not saying that all of you hate Mario. In fact, many people don’t. Sure, I mean, it looks like a game that three-year olds would play compared to first-person shooters, but that doesn’t mean that Mario isn’t a strong guy. Now, I’m not saying that you should like Mario, I just think you should give him a chance. So just hear me out.

Mario is extremely fast. In the game, there are enemies called bullet bills (if you didn’t know). They are basically life-size bullets with faces that shoot out of a cannon. Now when you play Mario Bros., they are very slow compared to Mario’s running speed, making him faster than the speed of sound. Now, if Mario is faster than a bullet, then I can probably conclude that they have slowed the game down enough so that you could see Mario move. Imagine at its original speed! Also, compared to first-person shooter characters, who have a limited run, Mario can infinitely run in his game (it’s best not to though because you could lose control).

Mario is super powerful. His shoes have gone through so much weariness just by running through the fields of Mushroom Kingdom. But he also crush live beings and enemies into mush, which wears it even more. He also has an ability to turn weaknesses into strengths. For example, he eats random red fungi, which could possibly poison you, that makes him grow. He also eats green fungi, which is even more harmful, to gain extra lives. In some games, Mario can even swing his arch nemesis, Bowser, who is a giant, fire breathing turtle, by the tail and chuck him at least 10 yards away from him.

That proves that Mario can be just as strong, or stronger, than any first-person shooter character.

The Holidays

Do you have any traditions that you celebrate during the holidays? By holidays, I mean Christmas and Hanukkah and that stuff. For me, my family spends the holidays with our second cousins. My grandfather had a lot of brothers and a sister, so my dad had even more cousins. We now spend it with a few of them that live here in the U.S. We usually switch whoever’s house we’re going to every year. For example, if the holidays was spent at my house last year, this year would be one of our cousin’s house, then the other cousin, then us, and so forth. I do enjoy the holiday tradition, and I hope to continue it every year.

Halloween Candy

Halloween, a time that everyone can enjoy dressing up like something foolish, even if they don’t like doing so. But after you spend so many hours trick-or-treating, you have this big bag full of candy. Whenever I go trick-or-treating, I usually eat some of the candies that I like the most. After that, I would probably donate the rest to charity. Some of you may eat all of it, and some of you might not eat any, but give it away. Tell me what you do with your candy in the comments.

Top 3 Most Underrated Superheroes

Superheroes, we loved them as kids, then didn’t care, and now love them again. To those people who aren’t fans of them(I’m not pointing fingers at anyone), they often hate on the ones who seem the least powerful. I’m here to disprove your thoughts! Maybe.

3. Spider Man – I didn’t put him on this list because he is underrated, I just think that not everyone has realized his true potential. He’s not just a guy in a suit who can shoot webs, when he got bit by a radioactive spider, he also found much better abilities. He has this thing called the Spider (or Spidey) Sense which allows him to react to things like bullets or arrows extremely fast. He can also move more than 200 miles per hour if he wants to. I guess you would like to be him for Halloween now, huh?

2 . Aquaman – Not everyone has heard of Aquaman, but from the reviews I have heard about him, he is considered the joke of the superheroes. I mean before, he used to have a bad costume, and not a very cool personality. The modern Aquaman though, he is cool enough to be called a superhero. He is the king of the sea (I thought that was Poseidon…), and he holds a mighty trident. He has an army of sea soldiers on sea horses in which he can summon whenever there is danger. Tell me that’s not a hero.

1. Batman – Of course you saw this coming. He is probably the most underrated of all superheroes. Many will argue that Batman has no superpowers, and therefore has no right to be called a superhero. I disagree! This guy has the most advanced technology in his generation, which I think qualifies for superpowers. He has done so much body building, that he looks a pro wrestler or a miniature version of The Hulk. Super enough for me! He has incredible memory, he has mastered over 70 martial arts and hasn’t forgotten them, tell me that can be found in the real world! He may not be a superhero to you, but if he existed, I can guarantee he would beat up someone in a supernatural way.

My Dog, Bella

20130917-214101.jpg

This is my dog, Bella. She is currently 4 months old, and is a Jack Russell Terrier/ Pit Bull Terrier Mix. We got her from a shelter that my sister volunteers at. She was being fostered by a lady who has been growing up with dogs ever since she was 12. We looked at many dogs, but this one just seemed to fit our style the most. Her name was Barbara Ann, but we didn’t like that, so we came with the name Bella after a long debate. She has somewhat of a bipolar personality. When she is fully awake, she can go from playful to maniac. When she is sleepy, you can just pick her up, or put her on your lap and she won’t even care, she’ll probably just sleep on you. We do have some problems, like potty training, and training in general, but I think that we are going to be just fine.
