Disney Magical World 2 Release Party- Nintendo Store NY #Nintendo #NintendoKidReviewers

Disney Magical World 2 Release Party -Nintendo Store NYdisneymw1Disney has been a part of our family forever. Everyone needs a little magic in their life and Disney is right there to help us out. Recently our family was invited to a pre-release party at Nintendo World New York for the newest Disney game- Disney Magical World 2, available on Nintendo 3DS as of October 14th. The magic was flowing as we were introduced to the newest Disney game. The children on hand, including my own were treated to a morning of testing out the game, delicious foods, glitz and glamour, and hair styling. There was even a costume nook where the children were able to choose their favorite Disney Princess or Prince costume which included Belle, Ariel, Alice, Rapunzel, Anna, Elsa and more. What more could anyone ask for to be put in the mood to play Disney Magical World 2!?

The guests were also treated to an into to the game by Disney XD and singing star, Olivia Holt. She was available to chat about the game and help the children choose their favorite costume. What a doll! As for the game- we give it a definite thumbs up! It’s definitely like a handheld trip to Disney! There are six different magical worlds to explore that include worlds of The Little Mermaid where you can become a mermaid yourself and swim along with Ariel, Snow White’s world where you can mine for gems along side of the Seven Dwarfs, Lilo & Stitch’s World where you can hula and surf, Alice In Wonderland, Winnie the Pooh and of course Frozen where you can help Anna, Elsa and Olaf with your own magical wand!

In Castleton you can show off your creativity by showing your fashion and decorating your house. Also be sure to check the store often for seasonal items! You can even snap and share your photos! You can check out everything about Disney Magical World 2 right here. So, if you were wondering what we thought of the game, we loved it! There is enough variety to keep every single Disney fan occupied for hours. It’s great for both boys and girls of all ages. As for adults, we saw quite a few that were actively engaged testing out all of the Disney Magic, myself included. This is going to be one of those games that the kids put down and the parents pick up. It’s just an easy going, easy to operate , fun game. We have also solved a question I have had forever- Do Disney Princesses play video games? Of course they do! Look at Belle going to town on the Nintendo 3DS! Belle gown on, hair curled and primped, makeup applied, gems, cupcake in hand and gaming- What a magical day for all!

Skylanders Celebrates 5th Anniversary With Cake Masters Portal Cake! @skylandersgame @foodnetwork

Skylanders Celebrates 5th Anniversary With Cake Masters Portal Cake! Skylanders “Cake Masters” Premiere Party- Watch Party!       

skylanders

If you are like my family you love Skylanders! From the moment Skylanders was first introduced to us- we fell in absolute love with the game, the characters and the portal! It’s hard to believe that Skylanders by Activision is celebrating their fifth anniversary. To kick of the celebration Duff Goldman of Cake Masters and his Hollywood crew took on the task of creating a one of a kind Skylanders  video game massive cake. Duff definitely surprised everyone with an epic Skylanders cake transformation that came to life before everyone’s eyes. The beloved kids video game franchise- @SkylandersGame, chose right when they enlisted the help of famed cake decorator Duff Goldman, to create a life sized, edible and playable cake. Yes, playable! There was a gigantic working portal in the middle of the cake!  The adventure was captured on camera for Duff’s newest show Cake Masters, that premiered on Food Network.

Since our gamer family has spent endless hours traveling through portals with our favorite Skylanders characters we could not help but join in the anniversary celebration with a Skylanders 5th Anniversary party of our own. Really, can you blame us? We started out with our own box of blueberry Duff cake box mix and created our own version of a Skylanders 5th Anniversary cake. Okay, so it was nothing in comparison to the Cake Masters, BUT it was delicious and there were no complaints at all.

skylanders4skylanders3If you love Skylanders you should definitely grab some party supplies and have a party of your own. You really don’t need a reason to celebrate. You can just have a Skylanders party with your favorite gamers! Cake and playing Skylanders is a perfect night in my eyes! You can check out more of our party fun on the video below from our Snapchat: Threedecades snaps!

We had a blast hosting our own Cake Masters Watch Party! Two of our favorite things- Skylanders and Cake! Does it get any better? Check out more about Cake Masters and the premier episode here: http://www.foodnetwork.com/shows/cake-masters.html

Mario and Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games- #Nintendo3ds #NintendoKidReviewer

Mario and Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games

marioandsonicMy name is Emily and I am an official Nintendo Kid Reviewer. It’s really fun every time a new game comes in the mail. This time Mario and Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games came. There are a few modes you can play. Up to four players can play the game with one game card! In the Road to Rio mode you play through the game and play to win the Olympic Games with one gym to train with Mario’s gym or Sonic’s gym. In the Rio 2016 Quick Play you can choose which event to take part in.marioandsonic1

In the game you can switch to Plus Events which are the same events with little (or big) twists. In Pocket Marathon you can get prizes from running a course. To run the course you close your 3DS without turning it off and take it with you when you go for a walk. You will win prizes like melons and apples which you can trade for clothes and gear. I haven’t played the whole game yet, but so far it’s been so much fun!

Game tip: Try the clothes and gear that are best for the event and for you.(If you can’t beat a part of the game you can get an assisted clear)

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Review #NintendoKidReviewer @Nintendo

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Review

zelda

I have been a fan of the Legend of Zelda franchise for as long as I remember. I loved catching myself up on the series via the Nintendo E-Shop and the re-releases of games like Ocarina of Time, and Majora’s Mask. I was extremely excited to see that my favorite game in the franchise, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, was being remastered for the Wii U system. I was so eager to dive back into the universe that I loved so much when I originally visited the game on the Nintendo Gamecube system.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD brought back all the great times I experienced years ago, but in a stunning new way. With top-notch graphics and the use of the Wii U’s Gamepad, the experience felt very new and refreshing. Twilight Princess also features one of my favorite storylines from the Zelda franchise, where Link switches back and forth between his normal and wolf forms in order to save Hyrule.

The game is a rich experience on the Wii U console, and features incredible gameplay along with awesome and challenging boss fights. I’ve already sunken many hours into the game, and I’m still finding many new things to do, and many places to explore. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is a Nintendo gaming experience that you should definitely check out on your Wii U console!

Nintendo World NY (Newly Renamed and Better Than Ever) #NintendoKidReviewer #Nintendo

Nintendo World Renamed Nintendo New York- All New And Now Reopened! #NintendoNY

mario1For years and years we have been going to the newly renamed Nintendo New York. First of all if you remember way back, the store originally opened at the Pokémon Center New York, followed by Nintendo World and now currently it is named Nintendo New York. If you are a fan of Nintendo you will definitely want to head over there and check it out. There have been a ton of renovations. All of your favorite games and character plush, clothing, accessories and more are all available for you to take home.IMG_1418 IMG_1401You will be able to see all things old and new at Nintendo New York. Check out an array of all of your favorite consoles throughout the years. Since hubby and I were gamers even before the kids arrived, I am pretty proud to say that we have quite a few of the display items!- I can’t believe how far the Gameboy has come. I remember thinking how wonderful it would be to have a lit screen as I held up my reading light to try and see my Tetris game on my original chunky Gameboy. I love to just look at all the different ones side by side.  IMG_1425 IMG_1426You will definitely want to check out the fifteen foot gaming wall! I WANT one in our house! It’s ever gamers dream come true! It’s fun for both the kids and the adults to test out all of the latest games available from Nintendo. If I do say so myself, seeing your favorite game on a fifteen foot screen is pretty amazing and definitely worth a stop and see. IMG_1419

If you are in the NYC area, you will not want to miss out on a trip to Nintendo New York! It’s a gamers dream come true. Even if you are not a gamer, you may want to stop in and check it out for a gamer in your life. They will thank you for it.
