The Big Break from the Big N: My Ten Year-Long Hiatus from Nintendo

Those who have been reading this blog for some time may know how big of a Nintendo fan I am. While I've been a big supporter of a lot of the The Big N and what they've done over the years, they only recently re-entered my good graces. Over at PlayingWithThoughts, a recent article talked …

Personal Announcements and Milestone Celebration!

Happy Friday good people of WordPress and other places! It's a good day indeed and a cause for celebration, and that's because I have officially reached 50 followers! 51, to be exact, but I totally missed it since it went from 49 to 51. I never thought I'd get a single follower, let alone fifty …

Limited Edition Physical Copies on the Nintendo Switch – Who Will Step Up to the Plate?

I've talked a lot on here about LimitedRunGames, and a little about IndieBox, and how I think companies like these are helping save the physical release. While they have some light competition, for the most part, they represent somewhat of a monopoly on limited print physical releases for the Playstation 4 and Vita. Buyers of these …

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 …

RETROspectives, part 1: Police Quest – In Pursuit of the Death Angel (1987)

Welcome to a new installment into the Nostalgia Trigger repertoire that I'm calling RETROspectives! In this series, I'll revisit three PC games from 1987-1992 - the first five years that I, your host, have existed in human form. I must say, I am very excited to talk about this game today. This is one of the …

Some Stray Thoughts on the April 12th Nintendo Direct!

The Nintendo Direct aired last night, yesterday afternoon, in the evening, and this morning. All at the same time. Incredible how time works! I just wanted to post some stray thoughts on some of the game-specific announcements. First of all, and this doesn't surprise me as much as it should, let me start by saying …

Geddy’s ProTips: How to Play Your Consoles From Anywhere In the House

With the release of the Switch and this newfound ability to play console-quality games (or at least a handful of them) absolutely anywhere, I've had a really tough time being anchored to a television or computer. Let's face it - it's 2017, and many of us sit down many, many hours in a day, for …

“More People Need to Play Ys”, and Other Things I Read In A Fortune Cookie Once

Earlier this week, LimitedRunGames made several announcements regarding their upcoming releases. In case you're unaware, LimitedRunGames is a small operation that makes a single print run of indie games, or otherwise digital-only games, that are available for a very short period of time, never to be reprinted again. Hence, "Limited Run." They typically sell out …

Yookah-Laylee, and Using Nostalgia to Sell a Game

It's no secret that Yookah-Laylee is among the most anticipated games of this year. Arguably right alongside the newest Zelda series installment, which in itself was hyped to the moon and back. But can this Return of the 3D Platformer possibly live up to the hype generated around it? To look at the origin of the hype, …

An Announcement, a Blogging Milestone, and #MyFirstPostRevisited Walk Into a Bar

It's a new week, and I have big news. Saturday, after day drinking copious amounts of beer, I was driven by my sober fiancée and stumbled into a furniture store, where I bought a shag rug. This is for the office in my new house which I don't yet technically own. Just look at this beauty. As I don't …

April Fools 2017: What’s Next for the Legend of Zelda Franchise? Here are Some Ideas!

Breath of the Wild has been extremely well received, and naturally we're all looking at Nintendo and wondering, "what's next?" It's pretty hard to top perfect 10 scores practically across the board. We've seen Zelda in side scrolling platformer, 2D, 3D, 2D with 3D capabilities, and now, open-world. What could Nintendo possibly do with the …

“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 …

You Know What’d Be Sweet? A Mii Game on the Switch!

First, let me just say I never got into Miitomo, and at least according to various sources, it never took off in the west. Personally, I had exactly three friends on the thing. And one of them only used it once. Granted, there wasn't a whole lot to do with it and it was deleted from …

What Do I DISLIKE About the Nintendo Switch?

NOTHING! Nah, just kiddin'. The Switch has been getting the bulk of my posts recently, but if statistics mean anything, it's what people want to read about lately. And of course, as I've been spending a lot of time playing mine, I have no shortage of opinions on it. Because I realize I can sound very …

My Nintendo Switch Game Wish List

The Switch is out and the game announcements don't seem to be stopping any time soon. Indie developers are jumping on the opportunity to be a part of this groundbreaking portable home console/home console that's also portable/any other damn way you want to describe it. But there's also the bigger players whose announcements we have to …

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 …
