Gaming since 1989

Female, 29, Canada

A Nintendo gamer since 1989. My first console was the SNES, and long hours of Super Mario Kart with my pa turned me into the gamer I am today. Now I'm a parent, and I hope to pass on my appreciation for gaming to my daughter :)

Another reason why I love maternity leave. Three days of live streaming and I don't have to miss any of it. I think I'll set up the change table by the TV so I can even change a diaper without missing a beat. If only I could get my 2 year old to make lunch...

If anything, these type of games create a heavier reliance on sites like this, to give a (hopefully) unbiased third party review. I still read reviews for 1st party games, even though I know I'll probably get them.
Basically, it's training for new gamers. You spend money on a couple crappy games, and it makes you a much more savvy buyer in the future.

Wow, I'm surprised to see that I already figured most of this stuff out... other than I was always choosing either Metal Mario or Metal Peach. Good to know, but I still like the look of the metal characters over the other heavies, so I'll probably just stick with them. Metal in HD!!! Hate the look of the button wheels, but I do know they're one of the best.

Wow, comments dating back to 2011... Glad I just heard about it at E3, or that would have been a long wait!

If it had just been the Digital Event, I would have been mildly disappointed. The follow up with live Treehouse is genius. Games that didn't hook me in their reveal in the Digital Event certainly made a fantastic second impression in the Treehouse Demos. I really hope Nintendo sticks with this format for future E3s.

she_gamer commented on Feature: Our Hopes and Dreams for E3 2014:

A solid Paper Mario would be awesome. TTYD is my favourite of all time, and I did enjoy the Wii one... but the 3DS version left something to be desired. So it's been a decade since I've truly been enthralled with a Mario RPG.

MKWii was my only online play, and since MKWiiU is coming out soon I don't have much to lament. I just loved the concept of racing people from other countries... Didn't even know it could do that before I bought it, and discovered that feature months later when I had wifi installed in my home. "Is it really letting me play against people from Japan??? NO WAY!"

she_gamer commented on Round Table: Let's Talk Endlessly About Mario ...:

So incredibly psyched for this. Mario Kart 8 accounts for 33% of why I bought a Wii U. Another third goes to 3D world, and the last third is open for pleasant surprises (rayman being one of them).
P.S. "delivered with a straight face". High five.

I was just looking to see where to buy this game! I actually have it already, but I was just thinking if anything happened to it, where would I get another one. I already had to go through the headache of finding a new Okami.

Hey!! Wait Wait Wait, I just remembered something good! WiiU officially supports two Gamepads. That actually made me clap.

Still can't believe I waited a year for a couple seconds of extra Paper Mario footage though. Sigh.

she_gamer commented on Talking Point: Should Zelda Go Episodic?:

This is my biggest problem with Zelda. It's simply too long and I don't have the time. I tried Twilight Princess, Skyword Sword, and even bought Ocarina of Time 3DS, and I just couldn't get into them. Okami, on the other hand, I gladly spent 50+ hours on, and Xenoblade Chronicles I'm approaching 40 hours. So what's the difference? I really don't know exactly, they just managed to capture my interest.
However, that being said, I don't believe Nintendo should change their current Zelda formula if it's working so well for the fans of the series. I've found other titles that interest me, so I don't feel left out when everyone's raving about the new Zelda. It's just not for me.

I did borrow the first Sega/Sonic All-Stars Racing, and it wasn't bad. One step up from "this actually doesn't suck" to "Hey, this is kinda good". This looks even better, but unfortunately, I only need one good racing game.

she_gamer commented on Review: Pandora's Tower (Wii):

As a newbie to the JRPG genre, I have to say that all the things I love about Xenoblade Chronicles seem to be missing from this title, so I may pass (massive landscapes, plenty of side quests, no penalties for taking your time exploring, no heavy punishments for dying... a lot). Still on the fence with Last Story though.
