Growing up in a highly competitive house, I’ve grown into a fair bit of anxiety when it comes to competitive games. Finding one that manages to feel just as fun whether you win or lose is rare, but Ultimate Chicken Horse nails it. I can’t tell you the number of times play sessions devolved into the entire room laughing as the ridiculousness of the stages grow each round. Coming newly to the PS4, Ultimate Chicken Horse is one of the best couch competitive experiences available on the console which can be enjoyed by the whole family.
Building custom Super Mario Bros. levels sounds like a great idea on paper, but there was plenty of room for doubt as to whether Nintendo would nail it in practice. Thankfully for Super Mario Maker, Nintendo did the franchise justice with their level builder and created a game I still boot up on a daily basis. Let’s face it, the Super Mario games are fun and having a nearly unlimited supply of new stages to try can only be a good thing. From the terrible levels to the clever and devious ones, I enjoy hopping into Super Mario Maker every time.
Now that my Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain review is done, I celebrated by attempting the second half of my Expert run on the 100 Mario Challenge. Will I be able to make tall the way through with the meager amount of lives I have left, or will I fall just short of victory? Check out the thrilling conclusion here to find out!
In lieu of the stream tonight, I recorded myself playing through expert mode on the 100 Mario Challenge in Super Mario Maker. Silly me, I thought I might be able to do the whole thing in one sitting, but it is actually a huge time commitment. As such, this is only the first half and I will be doing the second at a later date. Enjoy!
Now that a little time has passed since E3 2015, I’ve had some time to reflect back on some of the awesome titles from the big developers. A few of them we’ve seen before and there were even some that are brand new, but all of them are going to rock my socks off when they finally come out. You might be sick of hearing about them by now, but I just wanted to take a minute to give props to all of the big games that excite me most from E3 2015.
