Let’s Talk Video Game Manuals, and 3 of my Favorites!

Ahh - the video game manual! Never has something so great been accompanied by something even greater. Peanut butter and jelly? Ha! Total snooze-fest! Steak and potatoes? 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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …
