Barring a handful of games, I was admittedly distant from the Nintendo 3DS library -- even more so once the Switch released. Even as a fan of JRPGs, the handheld's bread and butter, I barely paid attention to it since I was already buried under the backlog of my PlayStation Vita. So it goes without … Continue reading [REVIEW] The Alliance Alive HD Remastered
Few things in the gaming industry get me more excited than a Nintendo Direct. I'm 36, a bit jaded, and the feeling of elation often eludes me with game announcements... with the exception of Nintendo. Blind nostalgia? Sure. But hey, it makes me happy. Yesterday's Nintendo Direct presentation spent a little over thirty minutes running … Continue reading So That Was One Hell of a Nintendo Direct, Yeah? Let’s Talk About It!
Friday! Video games! Let's talk! I finished up Night in the Woods on the Switch last night, which is a 2D adventure game that plays out like those between-mission segments in Mass Effect 2 where you run around the Normandy and talk with all of your squadmates. Featuring an entire cast of bipedal animals, it … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?
Friday! Video games! Let's talk! Another Friday is upon us, bringing with it the expected batch of due dates for college assignments. Boo hiss. That being said, I still plan on squeezing some gaming in before Monday rolls back around. Sunday is a wash, though, since we're taking my mom to see the theatre rendition … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?
Friday! Video games! Let's talk! I'm not sure if it's due to inclement weather on behalf of Irma or what, but this week has been relatively slow on the college front -- a most welcome surprise. I took advantage of that by figuratively murdering my backlog, while also managing to sink a bit of time … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?
We're less than a week away from arguably the biggest gaming event of the year. Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo will take the stage (more or less), along with a few third-party publishers, and reveal to the world their plans for the future. Sony is riding high on their wildly successful PS4 sales figures and an … Continue reading Let’s Discuss E3 2017, Shall We?
Friday! Video games! Let's talk! I have a busy few weeks coming up as the spring semester draws to a close, which essentially means tons of essay writing, last-minute homework assignments, and final exams. I'm not quite sure how much gaming I'll get in this weekend, but it sure won't be for a lack of … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?
Friday! Video games! Let's Talk! The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is still my primary focus, which isn't surprising given how massive the game is. I've just taken down my first Divine Beast (Ruta) and have yet to climb each of the map towers, so that's part of my goal this weekend. The … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?
I'm tending to a sick cat while cramming in a major art essay that's due tomorrow, so let's just jump right in to it, shall we? What are you folks up to this weekend? Although I have my eye on Horizon: Zero Dawn, Torment: Tides of Numenera, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?
Four in February is an annual gaming event that encourages people to focus on their backlog, rather than spend money on new games. The objective, as the name implies, is to pick four games from the ol' backlog and complete them before the end of the month. This is something I look forward to participating in every … Continue reading Let’s Get Prepped for Four in February!
