Thoughts on Axiom Verge

If you were to ask what took so darn long to complete this game, I wouldn't really have a good answer for you! Released back in 2015 by one-man team consisting of developer Thomas Happ, Axiom Verge has been universally praised from everything to its aesthetic, to its storytelling, to its clear Super Metroid inspiration. …

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 …

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – 34 Hours and 134 More Questions

Warning: Some light spoilers ahead but nothing story-centric. Ahh, Xenoblade Chronicles 2. I've already written how I've had some trouble getting started. At this point in time, I am about 34 hours into the game - although that is a bit of a guesstimate because the "docked mode save timer bug" struck me bad, adding insult …

Thoughts on Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX (3DS)

A few weeks or days ago (I have no idea what day it is anymore) I released my Master List of 2017 and talked about my gaming adventures for the calendar year. In that list, I mentioned one of my favorites of 2017: Hatsune Miku Project Diva F 2nd for the PSVita. While I had …

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 …

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. Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is Nintendo's most recent foray into the mobile game racquet, …

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 …

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. …

Six Months of Nintendo Switch/Thirty Years of Geddy

Well it happened folks. I have officially transitioned into my third decade of human life. And I'm happy to announce that I feel the youngest I ever have!

Yeah, ok, like that ever caught on! But the video game and the video game manual? Folks, we have our winner. In 2017 it really is a lost art form, …

Pokemon Pearl: The Solo Piplup Run – Munchkin’s Journey Begins (part 1)

Given the good news about Pokemon at the Nintendo E3 Presentation earlier today, I figured it was as good a time as ever to put together a write-up of my latest foray into the franchise. Read on! I have a confession. I get nostalgic about things and then buy stuff. You could say.. my nostalgia …

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 …
