Pokemon Sun is a Great Catch in the Pokemon Series

Reviewer: Jason, Age 13 Game: Pokemon Sun 2016 is the 20th anniversary of the Pokemon series and one of the ways Nintendo celebrated this event was by releasing new main series of Pokemon games: Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon.  In this review I will be taking a look at Pokemon Sun. The gameplay in Pokemon Sun is mostly like the other Pokemon games.  Here is a very simple explanation for those who have not played a Pokemon game before: in battle you can pick 1 of 4 moves to attack the opponent with and a Pokemon is defeated when its HP reaches 0.   The battle screen is improved from the last game.  On ...

Nintendo Scores Big with the NES Classic Edition

When I first heard about Nintendo's plans to release an NES Classic Edition plug-and-play console, I nearly imploded. This was one of my first consoles after the greatest-of-all-time Atari 2600. It was simple and simply amazing. I must've spent soooo many days, weeks, months, years playing all kinds of games from Super Mario Bros. to Metroid. I'll never forget the insane jealousy that poured  through my body the first time I visited my cousins in New Jersey. They had this new game called Legend of Zelda and the cartridge was a super shiny metallic gold color! Well, now for the price of pretty much one game on the Wii U, you can ...

Nintendo Sent Us a Big ol’ Bucket Full o’ Color

As a blogger, I'm always getting all sorts of neat mystery packages sent to my house. Sure I get loads of boxes packed with movies, games or gadgets that I need for blog post reviews. But there are plenty of days I get boxes that I have no clue what's inside. Yeah, the UPS guy must love me. Take the other day for example. A box showed up and I didn't have any upcoming reviews planned, so I had zero clue what was inside. I opened it up and saw an even bigger mystery. A beautifully wrapped yellow bucket filled with all sorts of interesting looking items. I had a vague idea ...
