Thoughts on Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles (Switch)

I don't remember when I first saw the trailer for Yonder, but right away, I realized it was for me. Following the discovery of Yoku's Island Express, a combination of relaxing play and beautiful visuals seemed like it paired well with me at the time, and just as Yoku did not disappoint, Yonder currently sits in my good graces. …

Thoughts On Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc (PS2)

I love Rayman. Since the day I booted up the original Rayman on my old Compaq Presario many moons ago, I had a weird fascination with the strange fellow. I first wandered into the world of Rayman in my younger years, naturally - wandering into a CompUSA I found a copy of the MS-DOS release …

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp -or- The Quest For Steel

While I alternate sitting and standing at my really neat adjustable desk, impatiently waiting for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 to arrive while Googling the typical jail sentences for hijacking delivery vans, I wanted to start a write-up about Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.

Super Mario Odyssey – The Collect-a-Thon We All Needed

Evidently, Mario is not popular in Thailand. Our original honeymoon plans were going to put me in Japan for the Super Mario Odyssey launch, where our favorite Italian plumber enjoys fame and fortune, but despite my best efforts to steer my honeymoon to a more Mario-friendly destination, we enjoyed up going further south to Thailand. …
