I really want to like this game. In theory, it should be something that grabbed me and that would have forced me to bug my friends into submission, but I just can’t get through it. I have been trying to get my friends to check this game out, but I could tell that it was going to take some convincing. How can I expect them to pay $60 for a game that I wasn’t even too sure about? Apparently, I’m pretty good at negotiations and was able to get my friends to try it out. (That and anyone can get a 14 day free trail to Xbox Game Pass, which allows you to play Sea of Thieves for free). Over […]
I heard all of the excitement surrounding Sea of Thieves and I felt as though this would be the game for me. I don’t know why, but I think my favorite aspect of Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker and Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag was the sailing. The idea that you can just be out in the water and discover new […]
what is life without the experiences that you live and learn from? Whether your journey through life is pleasant or traumatic, we rely on our memories to give us drive and clarity. The idea of losing my mind is one of my worst fears. Not spiders. Not poverty. The idea that one day I could wake up and forget everyone […]
Recently, another mass shooting plagued the United States, and this time it was directed at a high school in Florida. Many students, who were feeling as though they were as safe as they could be, ended up in the middle of a situation that very few have ever and will ever experience. Students were killed and many more injured […]
Update: I just played the game for the first time on the Xbox One X and finally got my Chicken Dinner! I am aware that this post may not have the same meaning, but I just needed to share this awesome moment. The rest of my post is filled with my impressions of the game…I think it’s worth a read. […]
Recently, Atari announced that they will be crowd funding their popular Roller Coaster Tycoon series in order to port the game over to the Switch. Personally, I loved the Roller Coaster Tycoon series, and I was actually pretty excited about the prospect of playing these games on the Switch. Immediately nostalgia kicked in and I remembered the hours upon hours that I put into the original during summer breaks when I should have been outside. I spent many late nights trying to figure out why a ride continuously broke down or why my janitor felt it was necessary to cut the grass for the entire park instead of actually taking out the trash and cleaning vomit. While I was sitting […]
First of all, I would like to just thank all of you that have stuck with me while I work out some of the major changes in my life. Since I started this blog, I have gotten very encouraging words from fellow writers and have participated in some great challenges that have helped me to continue developing as a writer. […]
Is Mario the legend that we know, or the villain we fear he could become?
Thanks to Kim over at Later Levels for the question!
As children, we often idolize the people that make a difference. Whether it is a astronaut that has come home to tell their story of different worlds, or a soldier that saved lives in a war torn village, children grow up thinking that there are good guys and bad guys. Right and wrong with no grey area. But, what happens when the people that we grow up to love are not so black and white? We all know the myth and legend behind Nintendo’s most iconic character, Mario, but is he the hero that we all think he is? Or, is he just a troubled soul that seeks violence and murder? I have been playing Mario games my whole life […]
The internet is a wonderful thing for all of us. It allows those without a voice to finally be heard. It gives people that have something to say a platform to stand on and make their community stronger. But, what happens when the very thing that we hold dear is threatened? In just a couple of days, Congress will vote […]
This is my submission to Adventure Rules Charming and Open Community Event. Enjoy!
As reported by Gamespot, Belgium’s gambling authority, the Belgian Gaming Commission, has launched an investigation into Star Wars: Battlefront 2 and Overwatch to determine if the loot boxes in those games constitute gambling. Belgium claims that because players receive loot from loot boxes on a random basis, it is fair to say that players are essentially gambling with real money […]
When I first played Xenoblade for the 3ds, I was not sure what to expect. I had read a couple of reviews and watched some videos in order to try and figure out what was going on. Most of it confused me, but I could kinda see where they were going with it. So with a job that offered me some down time, and some extra money burning a whole in my pocket, I decided to pick it up and give it a shot. Hands down one of the better surprise games that I had ever played. I loved the combat, the art direction, the cast of characters, and the story. Pretty rare to find a game that can actually […]
There is no denying that video games have come a long way. Some of the first video games that I played are now being produced for handheld systems at a fraction of the cost that my parents spent in order for me to enjoy the 16 bit masterpieces. As time presses on, technology doubles and triples in its capabilities to […]
Recently, EA and Ubisoft have had the spot light on their companies due to a growing interest in a loot boxes and the overall shadiness of it. Loot boxes are nothing more then just another way to get gamers to spend a little extra money on a game that they like in order to feel like they have a bit […]
