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 […]
It has been a while since i have posted anything on my site. I have been working like crazy and trying to finish all of my wedding preparations. I love games and I love writing, but sometimes situations cause me to no longer have a choice in regards to what I am aloud to do with my time and unfortunately I do have to do adult stuff. That being said, I did have few opportunities to play some pretty fun games and now that I have some time to kill, I’m going to post my reviews for said games starting with Uncharted: Lost Legacy. Developer: Naughty Dog Platform: PlayStation 4 Release date: August 22, 2017 I have been a huge […]
“Hell is reaching deep inside of her. She has dreamt of this before. They say dreams are visions as thoughts of our hopes and fears as dreamed by our inner eye. But, what if each one of us is dreaming even when we are awake and all we can see is what our inner eye creates for us. Is this […]
You are in your bed, sound asleep, recharging your batteries for the next day. You wake up feeling remarkably refreshed, perhaps thinking that the new workout you did the night before caused you to sleep harder than you ever have. You reach over for your phone and check to see if you have any messages, when you notice that it will not turn on. A slight panic washes over you. Did I forget to plug in my phone again? How many calls have I missed? What time is it? Because of cell phones, most people will forget that they actually had to tell time by looking at something called a clock. Now fully awake, you throw the blankets off and […]
Developer: Nintendo Release Date: July 21, 2017 Platform: Nintendo Switch Splatoon 2 is a third person action shooter with a lot of charm and personality. I never had the opprotunity to play the first Splatoon but was always curious by it. I watched a few Twitch competitions and always liked the idea behind it. At the beginning of the month, I had the opprotunity to play the demo for this game and ended being pretty impressed with the little amount of time that the demo allowed. It drew me in with the colorful world, interesting characters, and pretty simple game mechanics. Beginning of the game You start the game with the same tutorial that you would have gotten if you […]
