My Favorite Game for Every Year I’ve Been Alive

It's true everyone. I have existed on a single planet for my whole life. I know - with galactic real estate prices at an all-time low, I have barely scratched the surface when it comes to exploring the universe, and I really have no excuse. I'm embarrassed to say, but all of my existing has …

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 …

The 2017 Master List + My Top 5 Games of the Year

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 …

Answering Big Questions: “What IP would you bring back from the dead?”

Over at The Well-Red Mage where I sometimes post words structured into paragraphs about video games, our leader and crimson king The Well-Red Mage himself is always asking the big questions. Last week, it was a short question with potential for some... tall answers, "tall" being an opposite of "short." I don't know. Anyway, the …

Why You Should Buy Xenoblade Chronicles 2 This Friday

Yesterday I had a conversation with my co-worker and fellow Nintendo-everything fanatic, and he explained to me that he wasn't interested in Xenoblade Chronicles 2  because he had never played previous installments in the series before. I explained to him that none of the Xenoblade games are connected, and spoke more about my experiences playing …

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 …

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! I'm at my healthiest and wealthiest, so I think I'm doing it right, although I'll probably lose both of those traits as the plans in this decade …

The Most OVERRATED Video Games, According to Some Guy on the Internet

I've got a confession: I've played a lot of video games in my life. I think it's safe to assume that you, Mr. or Mrs. Reader, are in the same boat, or at least you've got a sizable interest in them. Over the years, I'm sure if you haven't played that many games, you've heard a …
