July 9th, 2012 No comments

EarthBoundThe Super Nintendo is home to a lot of classic RPG’s. Some of my favorites were Super Mario RPG, Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Trigger, and Earthbound.

The scents kept you guessing, but it sadly wasn’t enough to lure in people.

Stunt Race FXIt’s 1994 and Stunt Race FX has raced to the Super Nintendo System. Stunt Race FX was the first racer to feature 3D polygons that were amazing at its time. Thanks to the Super Fx chip, these graphics were able to be displayed on the Super Nintendo 16-bit system. Star Fox was an excellent game that also used the chip. Is this game as good or is it only about graphics. Find out more in the review!

F-Zero

March 13th, 2012 No comments

During the launch of the Super Nintendo there were many innovative and fun games. One of them was the futuristic racer, F-Zero. The game had a sense of speed like no other game had before. Racers would constantly reach speeds up to 300 mph.

You get to choose from a selection of four drivers including Captain Falcon, Dr. Stewart, Pico, and Samurai Goroh. Each car has parameters such as speed, turning, and armor. If you want to get a feel of the game, the best character to use is Captain Falcon. His car, the Blue Falcon, is well rounded in all stats.
