    Feb 23rd, 2007 at 16:38:08     -    Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES)

    After playing another 45 minutes of Super Mario Bros 3, I have began to notice a couple subtle differences from the original title Super Mario Bros. The variety of levels kept me intrigued while playing the game. There were levels on land, in castles, in the water, and a few others. There were also new features like the racoon mario feature. This allows you to fly, which is a very fun and helpful addition. Other new items that you can collect are the frog suit, P-wing, and then Super Leaf. Also, I noticed that if you complete a world and save princess, you might be awarded with special items. I was awarded with a Magic Whistle after the third level, but not after any other levels, so Im not sure what you have to do to get these items.

    After playing for about thirty minutes, I decided to check out the different minigames that I had previously come across on the map screen. I participated in Toad's memory game, in which I had to remember which pictures were in which box. This feature was a fun addition to the normal gameplay. Overall, I feel like this is a vast improvement from Super Mario Bros and a wonderful game to pass the time. I am excited to see how far I can get and what this game has in store for me.

    Feb 23rd, 2007 at 15:48:26     -    Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES)

    The game that I have chosen for my fifth gamelog is the classic title, Super Mario Bros 3. As the third title in the Mario Bros, SMB 3 introduces many new levels, enemies, features, and puzzles. This is the first time that I have been able to play Super Mario Bros 3, but I have been playing the first Super Mario Bros since I was young. The first thing that I noticed in the new title was the addition of the map screen. This allowed me to see where I was in the game and how far I had come.

    As I continued playing, I noticed many differences in the levels and characters. The level artwork was much more animated, making the game very interesting. There were many similar characters from the original, but the third version also introduced new enemies. The first addition I encountered were the Koopa Kids, Bowsers children. Luckily, the gameplay itself was similar to the original. This allowed an easy transition for a new player. In the first 45 minutes of playing Super Mario Bros 3, my favorite aspect is the ability to use the map screen to choose different paths in the levels. I will post my second half of my lof after another hour of gaming.

    Feb 9th, 2007 at 10:47:20     -    Madden NFL Football 2007 (PS2)

    After completing my first exhibition game on this years Madden NFL Football, I was very impressed with the on-field gameplay enhancements and overall fun level. The final score of the 49ers-Raiders game was 35-28, with my Niners coming out on top. After the end of the game, I explored all of the new features of the game. I decided to start the NFL Superstar mode, where you create a player to enter the draft.

    This mode starts with the assignment of your birth parents. First, I was given a Father who had been a Savings Broker with an IQ of 110, and a mother who had been a secretary with an IQ of 99. I didn't see much potential in this players genes, so I decided to be assigned another set of parents. The next set turned out to be much better. My father had been a Pro Bowl halfback that played in the NFL. This was my guy. So, I created the rookie halfback Taylor Lee out of the Ohio State University. The next step was to sign an agent to handle my future decisions and contracts. Once he was signed, I was given an IQ test and I was able to score in the 90th percentile. Before the draft, I had to complete various training regimines to boost up my draft value. At the draft, I was selected in the second round by the Green Bay Packers. I had to complete a couple interviews with the media and then start the preseason.

    NFL Superstar mode is the deepest mode I have ever encountered in a sports title. This was the most fun I have had playing a video game in years. My first season went exceptionally well. I won the offensive Rookie of the Year and was selected to my first Pro Bowl. There is a hall of fame checklist in the mode of many accomplishments that you must achieve to be selected into the Hall, and these would take many many seasons to complete. So, after about 2 hours of playing around in this mode, I have decided to take a break. Madden NFL Football is a must have for any sports fan, whether you are a frequent gamer or not.

    EA Sports brings us another outstanding year of its most prestigious title, Madden NFL Football. This year the game features many new modes, including NFL Superstar-Hall of Fame, in which you create a player that goes through the many phases of being drafted into the NFL. Along with these new modes, Madden 07 sticks to its roots of fun, realistic, and in-depth gameplay on the field. With updated rosters and improved defensive gameplay that includes complete control of every player on your team, I was ready to hit the field and see what this years version had to offer.

    Madden Football is the only video game that can consume me and intrigue me to play for countless hours at a time. I have played this title since the day it came out for the Sega Genesis, and have been able to see the evolution of its graphics and gameplay. This years version did not let down. My first task was to play an exhibition game between my favorite team, the San Fransisco 49ers, and the Oakland Raiders. Right from the kickoff I recognized some new features of the game, including the kicking meter, hit stick, and various defensive moves. On offense, I was a tad bit dissapointed with the ratings of my running back, Frank Gore, but that was the only complaint. Everything was very smooth. Audibles were easy to conduct and I had full control of the field. If this is the closest I will come to playing in the NFL, I wouldn't even mind. At halftime, the score was 21-10, 49ers leading. The first 30 minutes of this game have been outstanding, and I cannot wait to get back to the game. I will post the second half of the gamelog soon. Cheers!
