First Impressions: Super Mario Maker

Published September 27, 2015 by Amanda B. Greene

So far, I’ve played about a couple or so hours of Super Mario Maker. I found myself liking to build levels more than playing other people’s courses. The community has some great ones, but a lot of them are either super-difficult or “Don’t touch anything” where you try to survive or listen to a song; I hope that there will eventually be more diverse level creation and some middle-ground difficulties in the future.

I recently bought the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy for the Nintendo 3DS and I’m currently in the middle of Justice For All. So far, I’m really loving the games. I’ve never had the chance to play them before when they first came out, so I’m happy to finally get around to it. I’m going to review each of the games, starting with first. So without further ado, let’s get started. Read the rest of this entry →
