Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King
Good Game...Good rpg....Tell my family I love them......I feel the ESRB rating for this game is appropriate (Everyone 10+), although I must admit I don't recall seeing any actual blood or reading any offensive language.
Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past
love it!...Love it....Between this and Mario Kart 8 (not to mention several other already released games and the upcoming Legend of Zelda and Star Fox games), I would recommend considering getting a Wii U (unless you don't like fun; then, I can't help you)....It's still a great action/fighting game that takes almost no time to play, and perhaps the experience would be helped tremendously if I had amiibos, but compared to the lofty expectations I had for this game, it falls just a bit short....Came free in black friday bundle of Wii U deluxe!!!

Fun fun....Just fun...And of course you can upload the courses you make to the Internet for other people to play ... but, you have to be able to clear your own course before you can upload it, and you can only have so many courses online at a time (10 to start with)....Yet as the release got closer, and reviews came out, I also got more excited, and it was warranted: it's a classic Mario platformer in so many ways, but with the twist that you're playing levels you either construct yourself or find from the millions that other gamers have created to amuse or torture you....I bought this game at a promotional early black friday price.
You've searched castle after castle for the princess, slid through too-many-to-count number of pipes, ridden Yoshi on thrilling adventures and tossed fireballs, flown, stood still like a statue and swam underwater.

Great buy...Good Game...It followed the same tried and true platform that always wordpks, but the good news they are already adding more rare monsters to the mix starting Dec 5th, using QR codes... It's great for younger Pokemon hunters, both my 6 and 8 yr boys play it....There's even a post-battle pokemon refresh mini-game where you can pet your 'Mon or blow-dry off a wet 'Mon after fighting a water type or wipe the dirt off or feed them Poke Beans, all to make them more affectionate and trust you more, which boosts the amount of XP they gain in battle.

With vibrant graphics, Pokémon Sun for Nintendo 3DS helps you on your quest to "catch 'em all".
Have fun!...Best ever...But the most important reason why it just won't play with motion controls as beautifully as it did with the Wii U GamePad on the Switch is during some of the shrine puzzles; which are so easy to do with motion controls; but would prompt you to use that tablet like a literal plank, twisting it upside down and sideways to balance one or several rolling balls, etc....This is the best reviewed video game in history for a reason, and you're probably better off googling any major outlet's take on the game (IGN, Gamespot, Destructoid) than reading about my ramblings about how much fun it is to cook food and kill Guardians :P *The WiiU version is nearly identical to the Switch version so pick up a WiiU pro controller and save some $$$!
