Super Mario Advance 4: The Unfortunate Circumstances of the Special E-Level System

JonWritten by:

When it was released in 2003, Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3 marked the end of Nintendo’s act of bringing updated versions of classic Mario platform games to the Game Boy Advance. It was a grand send-off, however, as the final game in the Mario Advance series was a port of a game that many consider being one of, if not the best, Mario game ever made on account of its level variety, excellent power-up items, and thrilling challenge level. The send-off would have been even better if one of the port’s special features, the E-Levels, were completely utilized outside of Japan. These new stages would require the e-Reader accessory and special e-Reader cards just to access them. Unfortunately, due to various circumstances, many people would never be able to legally access a lot of these brand new levels. This was the reason why Super Mario did not do very well. However, this was not the case with Minecraft. With constant updates, shaders minecraft, and easy access the game did really well in terms of sales. Moreover, there are still millions of players that are playing Minecraft regularly. 

First, a little background information about the Nintendo e-Reader. Released in 2002, the device was designed for people to attach to the Game Boy Advance and swipe cards to access a variety of features. Some cards would allow people to play various classic NES games. Others would activate mini-games not featured anywhere else or add features to other games, including trainers for some Pokemon games. Apparently, Nintendo wanted to make a lot of money and try to utilize the e-Reader’s functions so that people could access the new stages included in Super Mario Advance 4. As neat as the idea sounded on paper, the execution would end up backfiring.

The new stages, which were located in a place called World, accessible from the main menu, were rather like a combination of elements from the entire Mario Advance series. In addition to features from Super Mario Bros. 3, there were vegetables to pick like in Super Mario Bros. 2 and ghost houses to explore like in Super Mario World. Also, players could collect special coins (like the Ace coins in Mario 2 or the Dragon coins in Mario World) in order to unlock new mini-games and other features. Nintendo also decided to implement the e-Reader by creating two other types of cards which could also be used in the original levels. One type would give players a certain power-up the item at any time, while the other type would unlock demo movies which were rather like the hint movies from New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

When the game was released, it initially came packaged with a pair of e-Reader cards, and some copies even came with another five cards. To get these cards, you would have to pick up the game at Wal-Mart, which carried the cards exclusively. Two packs of cards, divided into Series 1 and Series 2, were released at about the same time as the game. These cards would be used to access the levels, demos, and power-up items, and the initial set of new levels was covered in the Prima strategy guide. Nintendo promised and even advertised, more cards so that players would be able to enter even more new levels. However, fate had other plans.

Soon after the game and cards were released, additional card sets beyond Series 2 were taken off the release schedule, as were any other planned e-Reader projects outside of Japan. As it turned out, Nintendo had decided to quietly cancel any further support for the e-Reader. Consequently, the remaining cards were not released worldwide. Americans would not get the chance to use any other cards, and neither would Australians. In Europe, the e-Reader was never released, and thus they did not even get the opportunity to access even the initial set of new stages. Thus, Nintendo’s big plan turned out to be a huge bust.

Perhaps it is no wonder that their plan failed, because people may not be willing to spend a lot of money just to access some new levels. Having to purchase the game, the cards, and the e-Reader would be a hassle. The levels could just as well have been unlocked by clearing special conditions in the main game, such as beating all of the stages in a world or defeating Bowser. Nintendo would make the same mistake with The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures, in which multiple players needed Game Boy Advance systems and game links in order to simply play the game. The unwillingness for players to spend too much money just to play a game caused the company to cancel any further Gamecube-Game Boy Advance connectivity projects. Companies should learn that people should not have to shell out too much cash just so they could play a game or access a certain feature.

What really makes the entire tragedy worse is that the new stages themselves appeared to be quite fun and challenging. Mixing elements from past Mario games would make for some fresh new challenges…something that New Super Mario Bros. Wii pulled off beautifully. About the closest that one can get to experience many of the new levels legally is to watch videos on YouTube that feature these stages. However, I wish that Nintendo could release all of the E-Level stages so that players could experience them without having to buy several things. Surely it would not be out of the question for Nintendo to release the stages as DSiWare under a title such as Super Mario Advance 4: The Lost Levels. That way, we would finally get the opportunity to experience the levels for ourselves.

The concept of accessing optional stages is always a strong one, and other Mario games have pulled it off rather well. Super Mario Advance 4, on the other hand, did not, and all because people needed the e-Reader and a lot of cards just to enter them. In the end, everyone lost: Nintendo because they ended up canceling e-Reader support, and the players because they would not be able to explore any other new stages. Had the e-Reader not been required to reach the levels, they would have been accessed by and enjoyed by, a lot more players. The next time that Nintendo wishes to have people spend a lot of cash just to access a portion of a game, or the entire game, they would be wise to learn from their past mistakes, or else history will repeat itself, and the company would become a laughing stock.

Fastest Commander For An Extraordinary Gameplay Of Rise Of Kingdom

JonWritten by:

Are you the one who has just started playing Rise of Kingdom, one of the most popular and addictive games available on the Play Store? This blog is for you then.  

People who love arcade games have a keen interest in Rise of Kingdom because this is one of the most played games which is encompassed with fantastic features, excellent gameplay and mesmerizing graphics. The real feel of expanding your empire, battling against the forces, making powerful allies and exciting quests and everything else altogether makes the perfect environment of an arcade game and thus this game has reached the peak of popularity.  

The beginners often ask us about the commanders of Rise of Kingdom. Well, the commanders are the heart of the game. By making the commanders stronger, you can be more powerful and announce yourself as a successful emperor. Here in this guide you will get to know everything about the commanders whom you need mandatorily to progress with your gameplay.  

Planning to build Commanders 

To make a successful and effective planning for the commanders first you have to understand your requirements like how long you will be going to play the game and how much money needs to be spent on it. The legendary commanders are the best, however, they are little difficult to be upgraded. After the legendary commanders, you can go for Elite, Epic and Advanced commanders. Majority of the ‘free to play’ players pay attention to the Elite and Epic commanders and people who are willing to pay go for the legendary ones.  

Along with choosing players, you should also consider the roles of the alliance like PvE for battling against barbarians, PvP Rally lead for barbarian forts, passes, sanctums and altars, PvP Rally lead for other player bases and alliance and PvP defense for the attacks from other players.  

Training and Specialising Troops 

The benefits of specializing in the commanders lie in getting a full march troop where the buffs  are quite high and the chance of winning a battle is faster. Several builds are there which stresses upon Cavalry. This will get you the fastest marching speed and quite good attack buffs, Needless to say, this is quite important for the game. Specializing needs you invest otherwise, it would take a long time to make a complete troop ready. Generally players who are willing to invest in the game go for the specialization part.  

If you ask about the fastest commander, then we must say that the Cavalry commanders enabled with mobility trees are the fastest ones. By looking at the talent trees for these commanders will help you understand the scenario better. 

Cao Cao with maximum 3rd skill and the right talent set up is the fastest commander outside the battle. On the other hand, Belisarius with the right talent setup can act as the fastest one if the battle is something you can run away from. Lancelor and Dragon Lancer also belong to the Cavalry talent trees and have quite a good speed. However, Dragon Lancer is better than Lancelot because it has 5% more speed than Lancelot in terms of marching. Hence , it is hopefully clear that depending on the situation, Cao Cao, Belisarius and Dragon Lancer are the fastest commanders you can have in the game Rise of Kingdom. These are all about the commanders but there are other factors as well which can have impact on the speed of the game and those are VIP level, category research, alliance technology and assembly charge, troop tiers and troop types.  

However, people who play the game, consider Belisarius as the fastest commander of all who has various skills including deception, irresistibility, bucellarii, oblique tactics, bloodthirsty bucellarii etc.  

Therefore, you have to understand your requirements and budget to get the best commander in terms of marching speed. Needless to say, the better commander you have the more enhanced and smooth will be your game progress. The best commanders are mentioned here already along with the option of free to play and pay to play options. Choose according to your needs and preferences and enjoy this wonderful arcade game to the fullest.  

Happy and delightful gaming is awaiting you! Choose you commander wisely.

Review – Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures, the DS Version

JonWritten by:

In a world where adults and kids grew up putting lego blocks together, there was truly no room for failure, especially when you add “Star Wars” to the mix. Three years after the release of Lego Star Wars: The Video Game; LucasArt has combined it’s other legendary franchise with the Lego brand in hopes of another blockbuster on the video gaming world. This time is Indiana Jones’ turn. Indiana Jones is one of the most popular and engaging games that are out there. You get to play with your favorite character Indy and there are several online services such as lol boost that allows you to level up your character really quickly. 

Very little has changed from the Lego Star Wars games. The gameplay remains much the same and the three Indy classics movies are broken up into 18 different levels. The mission is to start from beginning to the end by exploring the area, collecting studs, solving puzzles, and whipping some baddies. The story presentations do not detail the entire movies but include short and humorous takes on famous scenes; they are all nice surprises so I will not spoil them here. Fans of Indiana Jones will definitely be satisfied in terms of story development.

Another positive is that there is an enormous cast of playable characters, they are not difficult to unlock at all. Different characters have different puzzle-solving skills and tools. Indiana Jones has a whip that helps him swing across rivers and cliffs. Some have umbrellas to slide down wires. Santipo has a shovel that he can use to dig or bash enemies head with. An added feature different from the Star War Games is that characters are able to pick up different weapons and class-specific tools and use them to open up areas that were once only accessible through free play.

While the game is fairly easy and fast to beat, the reply value represents the true meat of the game. One can spend endless hours exploring levels just to find that last idol. Free play becomes available after you have cleared the level in story mode; the player is able to choose one player while the computer will surround the chosen player with complementary players. Free play is a necessity for the perfectionists as it will allow you to collect missing artifacts and blocks and access hidden areas. The developer also has some other hidden incentives that encourage replay.

There are some issues with this game that prevents it from being the best. Indiana Jones does not boast the variety and quality of characters that Star Wars had. Most of the collected studs were spent on weak peons like Thuggee #5 and Chen Guo. Certainly a disappointment. Also, the inability to change camera angles made some platform hops downright difficult.

Still, with minor flaws, the gameplay remains fun and exciting. Collecting items and peon characters are still fun. Secret surprises were indeed surprising. The game is fun and challenging enough to keep a season gamer engaged and simple enough to keep a casual gamer from becoming frustrated. I highly recommend this game to all who love the Lego Star Wars franchise and all who have not to play the Lego Star Wars franchise. This is a quality adventure platform game for everyone!

RuneScape Money-Making Guide – Law Running

JonWritten by:

Are you tired of people calling you a noob in RuneScape? Have you always dreamed of having that santa hat to match with your santa suit? Are you tired of being the only one in your clan without a godsword? Do you want people to stop calling you a “noob” when you walk around? Well, you can make over 300k per hour running law runes, a fast and easy way to make money! Running law runes is one of the best ways to make money with barely any skills, and one of the most popular for new players as well as high leveled players.

Here’s what you need:

  • Law tiara or talisman (tiara recommended) unless using Abyss
  • As much pure essence as you can buy
  • Higher agility level helpful
  • Abyss miniquest completed if using the abyss
  • 50+ defense recommended if using the abyss
  • 1+ amulets of glory (charged) if using the abyss
  • Ring of life or Forinthry brace if using the abyss
  • Weight-reducing equipment
  • Pickaxe if using the abyss
  • Food (cake recommended) if using the abyss
  • Enlightened Journey quest completed if using balloon transport system
  • Logs if using balloon transport system
  • 1+ rings of dueling if using balloon transport system
  • FPS Tracker to easily track your game’s currents stats and rankings.

What’s so good about this method?

Though it can be boring, law running is a fast and easy way to make money. Since you barely need any quests or skills to be completed, this method is an ideal method of making money for new players.

What do I do?

If you are using the abyss, start in Edgeville with weight-reducing equipment, a rune pickaxe, and a charged amulet of glory wielded. Have pure essence in your inventory. Run north alongside River Lum until you reach the Zamorak mage. Watch out for Revenants and skeletons along the way! You may be attacked and possibly teleblocked by a revenant, so a ring of life or Forinthry brace helps. Choose the “Teleport” option on the Zamorak monk, and be teleported to the Abyss. Upon entering the abyss, you are skulled and prayer is drained to zero. Immediately find a rock or another obstacle to try to get past, and keep trying until you succeed. Now, enter the law rift.

If you are using the balloon transport system, run from the Castle Wars arena north to the Assistant and fly to Entrana. Once there, run to the law altar and enter using your talisman or tiara.

After entering the law altar either through the rift or ruins, find someone who is offering to assist you. You should use the designated “Law Running” world for this. Request their assistance, and craft your law runes. After you finish, either use your amulet of glory to teleport back to Edgeville (if using the Abyss) or use your ring of dueling to teleport back to Castle Wars (if using balloon transport system).

Useful tips:

  • Be sure to use the designated “Law Running” world to speed up efficiency.
  • A high agility helps a lot, as you will be doing a lot of running.
  • Try to equip only necessary items to save inventory space and run energy.

I hope this guide has been useful; good luck and have fun with your newfound wealth! Finally, if you are in need of a free RuneScape membership, please see this article.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the iPhone is Here!

JonWritten by:

After much anticipation, Rockstar Games has finally released the newest installment of Grand Theft Auto on the iPhone, ‘Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.’ Available from the App Store for $9.99 (which seems to have become the de-facto price point for premium games), it features a rich and immerses storyline in the immaculately rendered world of Liberty City. Despite a set of controls that seem initially quite awkward, this is a fantastic game, perhaps the best of the ‘console adaptations’ to arrive on the iPhone (and iPod Touch) to date.

In ‘Chinatown Wars,’ you play the role of Huang Lee, born into a Triad family and delivering the ‘heirloom sword’ to his uncle in Liberty City. In the midst of this mission, he’s caught in a battle between gangs, kidnapped, and eventually left for dead. Cue the redemptive plotline, along which Huang must save his own life and set off to redeem himself and his family.

As in all the other entries into the GTA empire, this one is replete with lawlessness and obscenity. Your character runs around, stealing things, shooting people, running over people, running through things, and just generally causing havoc. Surprisingly, given the App Store’s stifling approach towards anything bordering on lewd, the dialog in the game contains a healthy amount of swearing, so perhaps it may not be good for younger children (assuming you, in the absence of that, would have been happy to have them play the role of a renegade gangster). So since it is available also in GTA 5 mods Xbox one, it is advisable that parents give extra attention to their children when playing this type of game. This is to promote the safety of children.

Thus far, after a number of hours playing, I seem to be less than halfway through, so I can attest that this will be a worthwhile expenditure, in terms of gameplay for your money. That said, the controls suffer from the iPhone’s constraints, which is largely the problem of the small screen. The joystick and buttons need to be controlled as you go, but it’s hard to pay attention to what your fingers are pressing when they’re also focused on what’s going on in the action. I often found myself thinking I was driving when really my fingers had migrated off the buttons. It takes a little bit of getting used to it. If the screen was bigger (the upcoming Apple tablet, perhaps?), it would make everything easier, as there could be bigger buttons that don’t encroach on the play area.

The graphics are brilliant; the best I’ve seen on the iPhone. Especially at moments when you’d expect the game to falter (for instance, when you’re moving quickly), the animation is seamless and Liberty City is rendered beautifully. The engineers at Rockstar have really squeezed as much as possible out of this machine.

The gameplay is solid and occasionally broken up by little mini-games, for specific tasks (like the initial one to break out of the car you’re drowning in). These are fine, though basic and not really so complex. I guess it helps people retain focus, and perhaps build fine-motor skills.

Overall, this was a great game. I look forward to more publishers bringing their marquee titles to the iPhone platforms. It’s particularly refreshing to see among the nostalgia-tinged porting of classic PC games. The iPhone gaming market should not just cater to hipster 30-somethings (though those games are nice, too). I’d recommend ‘Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars’ to anyone who wants to see what the current iPhone and iPod Touch is capable of.

Intelligence Escaping Toy- A Favorite for Kids

JonWritten by:

There are three phases of life- Childhood, youth and old age. Death is the final outcome. Childhood is considered to be the best phase of life. The time period when we have everything going for us with no worries, no tension and no stress.

This is the phase when you have older and experienced counterparts in the form of parents who have to bear the brunt of jobs, money, expenses, your upbringing. These are the problems that you do not get to bear during childhood and only if you are lucky.

For there are many people who right from a very young age, have to shoulder responsibilities and duties far beyond their capacity due to destiny playing its cruel part. However, the plus point here is that in the process of doing so, they find that they wear the mantle very well and are well prepared for the future.

this acts as a severe penance for people as right from childhood they are brought in adverse circumstances and become learn and matured earlier than usual, becoming responsible and independent as it becomes easy for them to hold their own under difficult phases in life and learn to tackle them with ease and grace.

But the fortunate ones are those who have loving and caring parents to look after their needs and demands and gladly fulfill all their wishes. These children virtually get to rule the house with as the parents do their bidding and cater to all their whims and caprices.

However, it must be kept in mind that by the parents that while it is important to nurture them with love and affection, they should not be spoilt rotten so and imbibe negative qualities such as stubbornness, arrogance, disobedience, impatience etc. etc.

Children need to be pampered but not spoilt as it will have bad implications and seriously impact his future in a negative manner. The mistake that most parents make is that they forget that under the influence of their blind love, most children, from a young age, become cocky, conceited and impudent.

They develop a false sense of security that they can get away with anything, even murder, because they have influential parents backing them up or more powerful skin to protect their skin in case of trouble or altercation.

This aspect is a matter of serious concern and needs to be taken care of right from the very beginning. As the old saying goes-child is the father of man, therefore, your childhood is what decides what kind of a person you grow up to be.

It will act as a catalyst as what kind of choices you make and what you choose to make of the life you are destined in this birth. There comes a time when you are at crossroads and have two paths to choose- the right path and wrong path.

The right path is full of thorns such as difficulties, challenges and obstacles at every step. But if you have the passion and willpower to succeed, to keep going, you will surely reach your destination in the end.

In sharp contrast, the wrong path is quite easy to tread in the beginning, full of flowers and soft as silk, but it makes you quite lazy and irresponsible as you are not able to realize the dangers that lie ahead of you and are embroiled in the difficulties and challenges and fail in reaching your destination.

Therefore, parents need to keep the aforementioned points in mind while nurturing their children to become good human beings, achieving their goals and destinations in life and make them proud in the end.

During childhood, the two most important and paramount things in the minds of children are generally toys and sweets, along with regular doses of entertainment from television and video games.

When we talk about toys, it is the very first thing that catches the eye of all small children, right from infancy, once they start getting to know and become aware of their surroundings.

Toys such as assorted dolls, action figures, miniature house, toy race cars and various others. These things are what sums up the childhood of any person and it is only this that you are bound to remember and recall the most about your childhood.

But what are the toys that are the most popular ones for children? There is no clear cut answer to this question as it entirely depends on the minds of children, what is it that catches their fancy at the moment.

The right question is what kind of toys are the most useful for children? Again, the usefulness is something not much talked about as toys are mainly for entertainment purposes and keeping children engaged and their usefulness is just as simple as keeping children happy and satisfied.

We do have the Intelligent Escaping Toy to talk about. It is basically for exercise purposes as they keep the children up and about rather than simply sitting in a stationary position.

A technology based toy, it has the ability to sense and detect objects that are close in vicinity and programmed in such a way that they automatically change direction and run off fast when anyone comes closer.

Its features are as follows:

  1. It is battery operated and have a sealing ring attached to t for preventing any kind of leakage.
  1. It keeps not only children but also the pets engaged and entertained in a funny manner.
  1. It will glow and make a ringing sound when it comes into contact with anything.

MMOs and Their Impact on Productivity

JonWritten by:

With the immense success of the video game World of Warcraft, game companies are spitting out a bunch of online games in an effort to get their own piece of the pie. World of Warcraft was notorious for it’s addictive gameplay. People would devote as many hours to that as they did to full time jobs and some even went so far as to neglect their families. While the individual games may not have the same massive success as WoW, productivity is sure to take a swan dive.

You can increase your productivity with expert boosting. You can easily level up and increase your world rankings. This is a great tool to help you with your online gaming. You can link your world of Warcraft account with this as well.

We’ve got a Star Wars MMO coming out in the near future. It ties into the popular, and also addictive, Knights of the Old Republic games released for the Xbox. I’m on the fence about this. The trailer did look pretty good, however I am also highly excited for the DC Universe MMO set to come out in the next year or so.

The DC game is still in early phases of production. I have, however, seen video clips and game demos, each of which filled me with excitement. Luckily, I’m able to keep my mind off the topic ninety percent of the time, but when I do stumble across mention of the game, I want it to come out that much more. While I’m somewhat disappointed you don’t play as, but play alongside the major DC characters I suppose it makes sense. There can’t be 20,000 Batmen running around, though I would love to see all the Hal Jordans gather together and declare war on the Kyle Rayners just to see the fanboy war manifest itself in digital combat.

Trekkies and trekkers will be able to come together under the banner of the upcoming Star Trek MMO. Each being given command of their own starship. It’s every Trek fan’s dream come true. If you aren’t a fan of the federation and want to teach them a lesson, you can also play as a Klingon. In keeping with the show’s theme of exploration, you will be able to beam down to various worlds as well.

Given my propensity for procrastination, I have no doubt that the addictive MMO will impact my work ethic. Even people who don’t have a problem will find themselves glued to their computers for hours with these games. How on earth are we supposed to get anything done?

What of the people who buy more than one? If one MMO is able to take up 40 to 60 hours a week, a person running two games will be utterly screwed. There aren’t enough hours in the week and while some of us try to fight it, we all need to sleep sometime.

There is an upside, with the economy the way it is. People who are out of a job will now have something to do, hooray? Better yet, let’s turn it to our advantage. Most video games have you collecting coins of some sort, let’s make it legal currency. The money can be deposited into your bank or paypal account online. I know the companies have to make a profit, but putting some money back into the players pockets will help in these hard times. If Halo players can make a living playing their video game of choice, I don’t see why we shouldn’t be given the same oppurtunity.

I think we should learn from WoW. Rather than giving into the highly addictive nature of the game, we should keep control and limit ourselves to only a couple of hours a day at most. I know video games are fun and can be hard to pull yourself away from, but MMO’s operate on a whole different level. We all need to channel our willpower for the sake of our work ethic and make sure these games don’t consume all of our waking hours.
