My Favorite Game for Every Year I’ve Been Alive

It's true everyone. I have existed on a single planet for my whole life. I know - with galactic real estate prices at an all-time low, I have barely scratched the surface when it comes to exploring the universe, and I really have no excuse. I'm embarrassed to say, but all of my existing has …

Thoughts and Favorites from the Nintendo Direct

Well, it came and went, as Nintendo managed to sneak a mini-direct out ninja-style at some crazy hour of the morning. In fact, when I received word that it had been streamed, I immediately dismissed it as yet another hoax due to the hour it "allegedly" streamed. Didn't I feel silly when I realized it …

What Video Game Dungeon Would I Move In To?

A couple of weeks ago, Ian from Adventure Rules started the second round of his Charming and Open Event - a community blogging dealio wherein commentators pose videogame-themed questions to which he responds with a blog post. In turn, a question is volleyed back to the original asker, and they are to do the same. …

The 2017 Master List + My Top 5 Games of the Year

2017 has been nothing short of an incredible year for gaming - unanimously one of the greatest years that gaming has seen since the late 90s. Honestly, I asked literally every gamer out there and they all said the same thing. Oh, I didn't ask you? You must have been sleeping! The year saw not …

Answering Big Questions: “What IP would you bring back from the dead?”

Over at The Well-Red Mage where I sometimes post words structured into paragraphs about video games, our leader and crimson king The Well-Red Mage himself is always asking the big questions. Last week, it was a short question with potential for some... tall answers, "tall" being an opposite of "short." I don't know. Anyway, the …

Why You Should Buy Xenoblade Chronicles 2 This Friday

Yesterday I had a conversation with my co-worker and fellow Nintendo-everything fanatic, and he explained to me that he wasn't interested in Xenoblade Chronicles 2  because he had never played previous installments in the series before. I explained to him that none of the Xenoblade games are connected, and spoke more about my experiences playing …

The Breath of the Wild Critique – The Reflection Phase (part 4/4)

It's been months since I touched this article, having mentally divorced myself from Breath of the Wild and being unable to wrap up this series. That being said, for whatever reason I've stumbled upon a bout of motivation to complete it - perhaps due to the fact that I inadvertently wore my Breath of the …

SNES Classic Edition: Unboxing and First Impressions!

If you've been a long-time visitor of Nostalgia Trigger, this is going to sound very unlike me - but I completely forgot that the SNES Classic Edition came out this past Friday. Let me rephrase - I knew the date that it was being released, but I completely forgot that the calendar had somehow moved to September …

Metroid: Samus Returns – Old-School Cool!

13 years. It's been 13 years since a 2D installment in my top franchises of all time. The Metroid series may not have always had a spot on the podium, but since the early 00's, I've managed to play through almost every game in the series multiple times, and something clicked with me in more recent years. …

Breaking the Curse of “Gamer’s Block”

As my pending nuptials creep inside the "one month to go" mark, I've found myself very distracted from gaming, blogging, and blogging about gaming, aside from the occasional burst of motivation. And as ill-timed as this may be, I've also been suffering through a rough bout of Gamer's Block! What is usually my go-to for relaxation …
