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 …

E3 2017 – My Hopes, Dreams, and Everything in Betweams

I've read tons of these E3 wish lists, and read all kinds of crazy demands. But there's something to be said about having completely unrealistic expectations. Ya gotta dream big, right? Now I'm not a Playstation guy aside from the Vita which is dead as far as Sony's concerned, and I don't care about VR …

My Yearly Monthly Update – What’s Geddy Playing?

While it's been a good long time since I did a monthly update, I wanted to drop in and do a quick summary of games I've been playing, what I've got planned for the foreseeable future, and some quick news! First of all, I've got a special feature that nostalgia'd me pretty hard sitting in the …

The Breath of the Wild Critique: The Honeymoon Phase (part 1/4)

Note: After writing this over the course of several days, I decided that it was far too long for any mortal to sit still long enough to read. I'll be breaking this up into a four-parter, because rather than overwhelm with 10 opinions on 10 topics, I'd rather inspire some discussion on one or two at 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 …

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 …

Nintendo Switch Impressions + “Hue” Giveaway Results!

I feel like I've just woken up from a coma. It's a new week, the bleary-eyed Switch early adopters of the world, awakening from their long slumbers, presumably following some long hours in Breath of the Wild. I found myself in that camp, waking up with a deep feeling of dread that usually accompanies the day of my yearly …

Geddy Visits the Nintendo World Store in New York City!

The Switch is so close I can almost taste it - although it's possible that's the Chinese lead and BPAs of which this plastic water bottle is comprised. That's right folks - tomorrow morning I truly believe we will be seeing the beginning of one of the biggest shifts to gaming since the release of the …

Gamers Need to Realize Something

Earlier yesterday, the price that Nintendo will charge for the online component of the Switch was revealed, or at least in Japanese currency. The rough number for the US Dollar is presumed to be between $17-$26, depending on the exchange rate and whatever fluff Nintendo adds on top. This has been met with rejoice, anger, and the …
