By the time this goes up, it probably won't be Monday, so, good day to you whenever it is! Being the sucker that I am, and a special kind of sucker: the Nintendo fan, I got SMB3 on the Wii U this past week. It was only a buck for me, so I couldn't not get it. As ever, the Virtual Console is perfect for tv or off-tv play. (Advance Wars omg)
Playing SMB3 for the millionth time was still pretty cool. Even so, I have some minor gripes with it. There's seemingly no way for player one to use the gamepad, and player two to use a Wiimote. I couldn't get that to be a thing. I thought that would have been worked out by now. I hope I'm not just being extra stupid...
Also, and again, this could just be me, but the difference in lag was messing with me. I've played the Mario games more than anyone should, so I don't think it's my imagination. I had the same problem with Wii U versions of the other Mario games. It's small, but causes me to sometimes completely miss jumps! I'm starting to miss the old hardware. For multiple reasons now.
So uh...where was I going with any of this? I don't know. I guess we could do some reCAPS while you're here. How's that sound?
In this month's bloggers wanted prompt, we want to you talk about the physical places you may or may not appreciate in your daily lives as a gamer. Do you find the quiet monotony of public transportation like a train the perfect routine to always get a game in? Maybe you have a relative's home that brings a familiar and comforting feeling as a place and memory. I was just talking about when I played my 3DS in times of uncertainty in my car, so don't think any place is too small or insignificant to share. It could be a chair you've had for nearly half your life that you always sit on as you boot up your favorite gaming console. It could be the classic dream of a gaming room, filled wall-to-wall with your collection of video games *cough*ChillyBilly*cough* and memorabilia.
