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. …

Magikarp Jump is the Definition of Insanity

I had originally planned to write a little mini-feature on this little iOS App Store tapping game, but here's the thing: I never got to a point where I wanted to retire from playing with it and put together a little review. It's odd that something like Magikarp Jump would appeal to me, but Nintendo seems …

The Breath of the Wild Critique: The Burnout Phase (part 3/4)

Continuing my rant on Breath of the Wild, here is part 3, finally. In the last installment, we talked about the exhaustion that slowly began to occur from exploring, collectibles, eating and cooking, as well as some more positive words about the durability system. If you haven't read the previous two preceding posts yet, I …

Pokémon Direct: My Hopes, Dreams, and Everything In Between

Word on the street is that we're to receive a Pokémon Direct tomorrow morning! And it couldn't have come at a better time, let me tell you. For one, I've been getting a real nostalgic Pokemon itch for the past few weeks, and this might just be the scratch I'm needed! What could possibly be in store …

iOS App Store Retrospective + My 5 Favorite Vintage Games

There was a small window of time right after the launch of the iPhone that will always stand out to me in gaming. Back in the mid-2000s while clamshell phones were still all the rage, the elusive iPhone had just been revealed by Steve Jobs, and was quickly taking the world by storm by putting a …

Some Thoughts on Human Resource Machine, for the Nintendo Switch!

I can't exactly pinpoint the reason I've been reluctant to spend any money on the Switch eShop, but if I had to pick one, it would be a combination of 1) already having enough games to play, and 2) I don't like digital-only games, and would like more physical games in my hand to get excited …

“What’s in Geddy’s Hand?” March Edition!

Welcome to the first in a new segment, "What's In Geddy's Hand?" the ambiguously named installment where I tell you about the handheld games that have been keeping me occupied, entertained, and most importantly, distracted from my real-life obligations. As I've mentioned before, my playing style is usually playing one large game at a time, with a …

Stay tuned for some more Switch reviews and some nostalgia-inducing goodness, coming soon! As another unrelated note, if you're having fun on your Switch, add me as a friend! Friend …

Breath of the Wild: It’s All About the Little Things!

There's so many damn Breath of the Wild reviews out there right now that it almost feels pointless to write one, and so I'm going to bypass all of that and just talk about some awesome things about the game that I am loving so far! This game is a case study of the concept …

I Finally Finished Super Mario Run (after countless hours on the toilet)

While it may be unpleasant to think about, it's true folks, and you know it. The top-selling game in the industry known as "mobile gaming," or as I like to call it, "toilet gaming," is the latest addition to an admittedly short list of games I've completed in February. I've been endlessly grinding away in …

A Few Words About Kirby: Planet Robobot

I had my eye on Planet Robobot for quite some time before I actually pulled the trigger. While I'm a sucker for Nintendo IPs and generally impulse buy anything they have to offer, the Kirby franchise had managed to evade me since I was younger. The only game I'd ever played was Kirby's Dreamland, an extremely …

[Spoiler-Free Review] Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons

I bought this game years ago on a winter Steam sale, and it sat unplayed up until this Christmas break. With my trusty new Steam Link and dual-joystick controller (practically required to play this title), I finally made the effort and finished it in a few days. And I'm really glad I did, and you should …

Review: Rayman Legends on PSVita

I've played this game on and off since I got my Vita in early September, and I'm happy to say I've finally finished it. Not only that, but I somehow managed to 100% the damn thing, which upon first seeing the sheer amount of content in this game, I assumed was an impossibility. This is a huge …

Review: God of War Collection (PS Vita)

I just finished my first play-through of God of War. It came highly recommended, and as I haven't enjoyed a good 3D action fighting game in a while, I was pretty excited to get into it. Especially since this is my first dual-stick game and I was anxious to see how well it performed with the …
