Before I talk about Nintendo Switch Online, I wanna talk about something I just heard. Called: Star Fox Grand Prix.
And yes, this is only a rumor for now, but since a lot of people talk about rumored stuff, I wanna talk about something I'm interested in.
And here is the link of the rumor
https://www.dailystar.co.uk/tech/guides/749023/Star-Fox-Grand-Prix-Nintendo-Switch-Release-Date-News-Updates-2019-rumours

Wolfz Gaim REVEUZ!!! Short

   Star Fox Grand Prix (currently confirmed as)
 First off, I wanna talk about the title. Star Fox GRAND PRIX. Usually, you use this term for racing games like F-Zero or Mario kart. And Star Fox is a 3D spaceship shooter. So..... Is this a spinoff? I mean this wasn't the first time We've seen this. In Star Fox Command, one of the endings were "Fox retires from Star Fox and Falco tells him to mod their Arwings into a racing vehicle to enter the G-Zero grand prix". Of course obviously "G-Zero" is a parody of F-Zero. So this isn't the first time they actually mentioned a racing game in a Star Fox universe. And if this rumor is real, then I bet they got their idea from this part of the game. But it still bothers me that they're going to make a RACING GAME for a series that was all 3D SPACESHIP SHOOTING!!!(except Star Fox Adventures. But even this had little Arwing piloting) It's like if they made a F-Zero Bingo or Dance dance revolution fighting game.

 However, it's just the title. So maybe it has a multiple translation to it. Like the whole story is like a grand prix race or something. Well you shouldn't judge a book by its cover so I'm not gonna go too far about it. But Nintendo never played tricks with game titles so if this rumor is real, then I doubt it'll be a spaceship shooter.

 According to the rumor, this game is supposed to be the sequel to Star Fox Zero. And this bothers me as well. If you read my Starlink: Battle for Atlas review, you should know that I said Starlink is the sequel to Star Fox Zero, since it takes place after Andross died. And let me get this clear with first: That is just my thoughts. Nintendo didn't say anything about this game taking place right after Star Fox Zero or whatever. So I could be wrong. But it's not just me who thinks Starlink takes place after Star Fox Zero. But then if they're gonna make Star Fox Grand Prix the real sequel to Star Fox Zero, then where the fuck does Starlink go? Are they just gonna treat it as a spinoff??? Well probably since if the Star Fox storyline goes to Fox interacting with real people is weird. Fine. I can agree with that. Starlink shouldn't be a sequel to Star Fox Zero. Then should a RACING GAME be a sequel??? Well, as long as it has a storyline then fine. But just the fact that Nintendo is trying to make a racing game out of a franchise that was supposed to be a 3D shooter, then WHAT ARE THEY THINKING??????????????? It just blows my mind. And if it is just the title that sounds like a racing game, then it better have a REASON!

 But other than that, I am excited about it, since it's Star Fox. And of course even if it is just a racing game like Mario kart, I'll still buy it and play it. Cause that's what fans are. Even though it sounds weird, we still buy it. And play it. Just for the loyalty of it being a game based on a franchise that I love. So whatever it'll be, I'm ready. The only hope for me with this game is just PLEASE DON'T STAB US ON THE BACK LIKE YOU DID WITH STAR FOX Wii.

 Well that's all for this time. I just wanted to share my thoughts to a rumored game. Next time it'll be about Nintendo Switch Online.

NES Online/Nintendo Switch Online service

   NES Online
 What can I say about something with a bunch of games that were already said by other people many years ago? I mean, there's not much to say about this. I'm just reviewing it just because it came with the Nintendo Switch Online service. But there are some things that I wish it had.
 First of all, there aren't many games to choose. Excluding the Special versions, there are only 29 games to choose. Sure they're adding more every once in a while, but it's a little slow for me. Also, I wish they could add other famous games like Castlevania, Contra, Super Mario Bros 2 and more. I know Castlevania and Contra has copyright issues since it was made by Konami(BTW little fun fact Konami also makes Yu-Gi-Oh cards as well. Damn you Konami for banning Dark Matter Dragon!!!), but c'mon have that issue solved and have some of these games too. And one last thing, I know it's NES but can you add SNES games too? or better yet N64 games? I know that's too greedy but at least SNES sounds possible. Cause there are some great classic SNES games as well. And for the online mode, I never played it. So I really have nothing to say about the online mode but if there's one reason why I never played it is because I wanna play NES games alone. If it was something like Bubble Bobble then I think an online 2 player mode could be awesome(as long as the internet connection is fine), but oh yeah! There is NO BUBBLE BOBBLE! So fuck that.

   Nintendo Switch Online service
 First of all, let me get this off my heart: DAMN YOU NINTENDO FOR MAKING US PAY TWICE THE INTERNET FEE!!! Okay, I'm done with that. I know these days a lot of people play PS4 or Xbox 1(well for NA standards. I know some play Nintendo games as well but admit it these days kids play either one of those), and even PC games affected the market. So I can understand Nintendo trying to make money in every way they can. So from a perspective like that, this is well... kind of acceptable? But it still doesn't change the fact that what was free 10 years ago... oh wait it's 2019. 11 years ago is now a part of DLC bullshit. And you know how much I hate DLC. Well if you wanna play nasty marketing shit like that, then at least improve something from 11 yers ago. Well actually I think it did get improved. If Super Smash Bros. Brawl could rarely connect anyone, at least Super Smash Bros. Ultimate connects you with someone. But comparing between never getting connected and getting connected but plays like shit, then I'd say it's just like selecting the shiniest of 2 turds.
 But other than that, there's just so many good games on the Nintendo Switch that requires this service to play with others. Splatoon, Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, well at least Fortnite doesn't need this service but that game has a perfect reason why it doesn't need it. I mean if it was like the 90s and online playability was a selectable option then it would be fine, but we live in 2019 and if we have to pay for something everyone does on their computer, then that is some serious problem. But on the defensive side, these online services cost a lot of money to manage, and previous online servers like the Wii are already gone because almost nobody played it. And I already mentioned Nintendo has gone to the minor market already because of all the PS and Xbox and PC games out there. So it's a mixed opinion for me. As a normal Nintendo fan it's fucked up, but on the other hand, there are some acceptable reasons for why they did it this way.

Well since I talked about something kind of DLC, I might as well talk about another thing close to being DLC: Amiibo. Sure it's not completely DLC since some buy it for collection(like me. And also I know it ain't a game), but it's main factor is DLC. Anyway more about it next time.

   Amiibo/and the games that support it
 The first announcement of the Amiibo was umm... I think when SSB4 hit the scene. I don't know about you guys but for me, I like to collect stuff. I collect coins from all around the world(UK, Euro, Hong Kong, China, Japan, CAD, Korea, and best of all my 50 state quarter collection with all dominions), Yu-Gi-Oh cards, Legos, and games. And if there's one thing I find amusing are figures. They're mini versions of characters and if it's something I like, I get even more hyped up. So the feeling of someone whose favorite character just got a Nintendo OFFICIAL figure is something I don't have to explain. As soon as I heard the list of the 1st Amiibo wave, HOLY SHIT I SHIT MY PANTS!!! So as soon as it came out I bought it with no hesitation what so ever. But back then I didn't have a Wii-U, and neither did I have a 3DS. So for me it was just a collectible. And I wondered: when will they make Falco and the rest? But after that I lost interest in Nintendo for a while and played a heck ton of League of Legends. Of course I bought figures based on that as well. So after I got my interest in Nintendo again, I bought a Nintendo Switch. And turns out, the Switch also supports Amiibo. Then I remembered I bought an Amiibo. So I went to my room, dusted off my unboxed Fox Amiibo, and opened it 3 years after I bought it. BTW, the first game I used Amiibo was Super Mario Odyssey, and Uncle Amiibo saying " Oh that's Fox." was so cool. And I also found out they released Falco Amiibo too. Too bad it was Target exclusive at US and the Target I go was out of stock(Miami Target), I had to buy it from amazon. Fair price, but shitty delivery(after I watched Rocket Ralph 2 I thought maybe those Ralph viruses were the reason my amazon delivery was late?). And when I heard "EVERYONE IS HERE!" slogan, I had to think they're gonna make Wolf Amiibo too. But the first Amiibo announcement was Inkling and Ridley, no Wolf. I was disappointed but still I knew they were gonna make it at least some day later. If I only looked at Nintendo Facebook(ironically Nintendo announced Wolf Amiibo only on their Facebook page). When I saw that news I was like:

Hmm... The image doesn't seem to work but well my face was all hyped.

   Uses in games
 Well for example in Super Mario Odyssey, you can scan your Amiibo to Uncle Amiibo and get locations of power moons. Also if you scanned a certain Amiibo compatible to that game then you can get other goodies. In Super Mario Odyssey, you can get costumes. And in Star Fox Zero, if you scan Fox you can get a SNES Arwing that can't lock onto targets. If you scan Falco you can get a Black Arwing that is 3 times more powerful but has less armor. And the most complex use is the Super Smash Bros series. You can scan your Amiibo and that certain fighter will be a FP(Figure Player). It's just like a normal CPU, but the more it fights the more it gains experience and eventually it will level up. For SSBU standards(I think SSB4 is the same but I'm not sure) LV50 is the max level and it kicks 9LV CPUs ass. But other than that it's not too special. I'd say for a figure features like that are minor, and it's mostly for collection. And 14$ ain't that expensive so if you like a certain character and it has its own Amiibo, then buying these are cool. It's great for birthday presents too. If you buy Amiibo for its DLC function then good luck spending a lot of moola. But if you're like me then it's perfect.

   Bonus

Here's my collection! Fox, Falco, Wolf. And on the back are Gnar and Kindred from LOL.

And next review will be I guess anything. I am thinking about Ice Climbers but meh anything is fine.

   Ice Climbers

 Backstory

 Alright, back to the classics. Recently I said that I tried the NES Online for the Nintendo Switch. And there was one game that I heard about but never played it. It was Ice Climbers. Surely nowadays everyone heard of the Ice Climbers thanks to Super Smash Bros. And to be honest, I think it was the Super Smash Bros series that made Ice Climbers famous. Because back then, it was nothing more than just being a classic NES game.

 Gameplay
 
 Well, what can I say. It's like an arcade game. You just break ice blocks and reach the top of the mountain. And every level has a bonus area where you can collect vegetables to gain more points. And probably there's something else one the top of that too but I never made it. One thing about this game is the jumping. I think everyone can agree, this game has one of the most trickiest jumping controls. Unlike games like Super Mario Bros, you have to gain momentum to move yourself in the air. And jumping straight up won't get you far. So if you wanna master this game, getting used to the jumps is mandatory. But to my defense games like this should have tricky jumping. The game is all about jumping and making it to the top. So if you have jumping controls like Super Mario Bros in this game then it will be a lot more easier. And also, it adds more challenge to a simple game. Of course as you go the levels do become more hard but since the main aspect of this game is jumping, I'd say it's fair enough.

  Conclusion

 If you like arcade games, and you never played this in your life, then it's fun to try. Especially if you haven't played it before, it's pretty fresh. But it can get boring since all you do is jump jump jump jump jump.

Well that's all for today. It's pretty hard to talk about a game so old and simple. Next review will be one of the racing games to celebrate Star Fox Grand Prix.(It's probably Mario Kart or F-Zero)

Actually I got a lot bored and played Castlevania 4, oh wait Super Castlevania 4. Gotta love Super Nintendo games with the title "Super". Before it was the "something" 64 age it was the half ass Super age back then. But this game does deserve the "Super" word.
 So here it is.

   Super Castlevania 4

 Prologue

 Castlevania this, Castlevania that. I already did a review of Castlevania and did Castlevania 2 as well. But the reason is because that's how much I like Castlevania! Excluding Star Fox, it's one of my top 3 favorite game franchise. And Super Castlevania 4 is known to be one of the best Castlevania games, I had to try it. Maybe it would have been better to review Castlevania 3 instead but after playing Star Fox and some other SNES games, I got attached to em.

 Gameplay

 My god is it addicting. I don't remember if I said it back in my Castlevania review but if there's one thing I don't like about Castlevania is the controls and difficulty. And honestly, I think the difficulty comes from the controls. The jumping is a bit awkward and getting knocked back when you get hit is something I'll never adapt to. And some enemies come from the top. If you wanna kill it, you have to whip while you're in the air. But in Castlevania 4, I mean SUPER Castlevania 4, you can whip in 8 directions. Of course you still get knocked back and the jumping feels the same, but whipping in 8 directions alone makes the game more easier. Well you might want an extra challenge, but challenge should be based on the game itself, not the controls. Also, duck-walking is pretty handy too. And the whip twirling thingy is fun to use. And if not for reduced damage it would have been useful for attacking. Speaking of controls, thank god the item button is R instead of up+B(although I wish L worked as well since left-handed people can feel a little uncomfortable).

 Graphics/Music

 Something else to talk about. I know comparing this game with games that were just released doesn't make a competition, but let me get this clear: It looked very impressive back in 1991. Especially the level with the 3D looking background. And the music? Well I don't need to talk about it. It has a shit ton of new soundtracks and a shit ton of the original trilogy themes arranged into 16 bit versions. Vampire Killer, Bloody Tears, Simon's Theme, and much more. Before they arranged a lot of Castlevania themes in SSBU, I'd say this game had the most arrangements from previous Castlevania games. And I listen to SSBU Castlevania themes everyday, so you can tell how much I like it.

 Pros/Cons

 Very impressive graphics and music, very smooth controls, not too hard. One good way to sum this games pros. However, it lacks in storyline. I already mentioned about the Star Fox timeline and other games such as Legend of Zelda and Castlevania also have the same problem as well. Well if I quickly tell you about the timeline of the Castlevania series, is first starts with Castlevania 3 Draculas Curse->  Castlevania-> Castlevania 2 Simons Quest. And Super Castlevania 4 is a remake of Castlevania. Kind of like Star Fox 64 is a remake of Star Fox. And the next game Castlevania Dracula X is kind of its own storyline, so once again it kills it. Also, there are some other minor flaws I talked about up there but other than those, it's a great game. And I'd say, if you're new to Castlevania, then this and Castlevania Symphony of the Night are the first 2 games you should try out.

Well that's it for today. And next time I swear it'll be F-Zero.

      F-Zero

  What can I say? Of all the racing games out there it's hard to talk about a specific game. I mean, it's just RACING. No more, no less. Super Mario Kart was out the same era, and ever since the Mario Kart series became a huge hit every game franchise is trying to make one. Excluding the minor racing games(stuff that's on app stores or Xbox you know, the indie games), Sega made one with Sonic and some other franchises of their own, Mario Kart added a lot of 3rd party(?) characters in future games, and even Star Fox is trying to make one(although this is not 100% confirmed yet). So the question for me is: What is it that people like about F-Zero? It's just a racing game. Honestly when I played it, it didn't feel a lot different than Super Mario Kart. People are still asking for a new F-Zero game every day even though we got something close to it: Mute City course on Mario Kart 8. But of course that ain't enough. So what IS the reason people worship this game? Well maybe if I played the other F-Zero games I might have got a clue but since the only F-Zero game I ever played was the SNES one I might as well find out about it by this one game.

   What Makes it different than the other racing games?

 I may have said that it feels a lot like Super Mario Kart, but if I go deeply, there are different things with each one. Mario Kart has items. And these items help you during your race. It can be something simple like a banana peel, or something deadly like a red shell. Of course for me I didn't have much trouble with item luck with Super Mario Kart but games like Mario Kart Wii require a lot of luck with racing. Even if you're a very skilled driver you could finish last place because a bunch of items gang on you(for instance, 1st place-> blue shell ->3rd place-> red shell-> 4th place-> another red shell-> 6th place-> bobomb-> 7th place-> POW block + Power Star-> 9th place-> Bullet Bill-> 11th place-> lightning-> everyone finished 3 laps= FUCKING BULLSHIT). Of course that doesn't mean the game requires no skill, but you're not gonna get good results all the time. And most of the time it will piss you off. Oh and you know what's more bullshit? In MKW, getting a 3 star ranking in Grand-Prix requires you to be in 1st place for a lot of time, get hit by a lot of blue shells, never fall, and don't use bullet bills. May I ask: ARE THEY OUT OF THEIR MINDS??? First off, racing games all matter about who gets first place at the very end. It doesn't matter if you were 1st place for the whole time but finished second because of one red shell. NO! It only matters if you finished first or not. So in a game where final results are primary, why do you need to stay 1st place for a long time??? And about the falling. Well if I do time trial I'd never fall. but if I'm playing with other people and they throw shit at me the odds of getting hit by a blue shell while you're airborne is not that small. This is why I think of Mario Kart games "luck games". Then what about F-Zero? "No items" for starters.
No iddly diddly jack shit. Just you and the course and the other players vehicles. Sure some say there's no fun without items. But that's exactly why I think MK and F-Zero are separated. MK is more of a family party game while F-Zero is more of a competitive skill-based game. But you might think: throwing items and dodging them are skills too. In a way that is true. But do you really have to be skilled with aiming while driving? For people who wanna fair challenge I'd say F-Zero is the perfect game. But if you wanna have fun with friends then MK isn't too bad. So there it is. The answer to my question. F-Zero is more fair with competitive gameplay while Mario Kart is more of a GLHF kind of game.

   F-Zero itself

 Like I said, it's a racing game. And because it's fair, it's pretty simple. Just finish the race 1st place without crashing or falling or running out of energy. And the way the vehicles slow down if you have less energy is realistic. And like I said, the challenge is not dodging items and finishing first no matter what crazy things you did. It's in the course itself. You have to know the course and dodge the obstacles. And if you happen to know any shortcuts, they're useful. And one other thing I wanna talk about F-Zero is the music. To this day Mute City is still my favorite F-Zero themes. Other than Mute City, there's Big Blue and a whole bunch of other soundtracks as well. Another proof that Nintendo makes good music.

  Conclusion

 Well if you wanna fair challenge like me, then this is for you. But if you want some fun then try Super Mario Kart. Or MK8.

Ah... Another review finished. I've been playing a LLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTTTT of SSBU so I think I might as well take a break for a week. I am envious to play Zelda 2 right now so probably that's what I'll review next.(or not. Or maybe something special since it's the 30th review. Either way I still have to review something :'( )
