As the holiday season approaches, the new generation of consoles is finishing up their first year of sales. All three of the consoles have a slew of new games and hardware coming out to please consumers and show what their new consoles can do.

The Nintendo Wii U has 1 year over the Sony and Microsoft Consoles and has many new innovative ways to play their games and tons of great first party software coming out. The most interesting thing they have coming out has to be Amiibos. Amiibos are somewhat similar to skylanders or Disney Infinity but with Nintendo Characters such as Samus, Mario and Link.

The only compatible game so far is Super Smash Bros U. The Amiibo figure is placed on the game pad and the character appears in the game. You are able to fight along side or against the
character. As the character plays its skills will improve, according to Nintendo representatives Amiibo characters are able to surpass any bot in the game and provide a much greater challenge.

Some of the other games that are going to be Amiibo compatible are Captain Toad Treasure Tracker and Yoshis Wooly World all coming in 2015.

Last blog we did a couple short reviews of NES games that we feel are essential and are great for this new generation of gamers to play when getting into retro gaming consoles. This time I’d like to give some reccomendations for the Super Nintendo. Super Mario is a given so I will be leaving that one out and I’ll try to keep the games on the list $25 or below.

One of my absolute favorites on the system is Disneys Aladdin made by Capcom. This is a fantastic side scroller/platformer that should be played by all. Relatively cheap and easy to come by, it is a great place to start for all ages.

Sidescroller/beat em ups are very popular however the most popular ones such as Turtles in Time can be about $50 for a cheap copy. One game that is a great multiplayer experience and easy to pick up is The legend of the Mystical Ninja. This game mixes RPG elements into a sidescrolling adventure with great graphics and music.

Ever have difficulty deciding if you want to play sim city or an adventure game? Than Act Raiser is the game for you. Half the game is a side scrolling adventure and the other half is a city building sim where you play god and must help the people develop their city.
