Child of Light: An Excellent RPG for Those Pressed for Time

More often than not, a game with an interesting art style is a surefire way to grab my attention.  While this is most certainly not the only criteria one should consider when perusing their gaming options, it has also led me to such interesting titles as Okami, GRIS, and Cuphead, all of which are excellent…

Unforgettable: The Final Boss of Yoshi’s Island

In the recent-ish past, I wrote about my experiences playing Yoshi’s Island for the very first time, a really charming and unique game for the SNES.  One of the biggest highlights for me was the fun and unique boss fights.  While there were many memorable examples, the boss fight that stood out the most to…

And I’m Done with Ni no Kuni: A Response Post

It is always a shame when one of our favorite gaming franchises either dies or is reduced to a shadow of its former self.  Not long ago, Hatm0nster published a post on how he was finally done with the Paper Mario franchise (as am I), due to the sad fact that the series has lost…

Super Mario 3D All-Stars Will Only Be Available for a Limited Time

Nintendo has recently announced a whole bunch of things that will be available for the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros.  This includes making various Mario titles available on the Switch, a Mario Game & Watch, Mario-themed furniture coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in March of 2021, and even…Mario-inspired shoes?  Okay.  Ahem, you can…

It Only Took Me 26 Years to Get 101% in Donkey Kong Country

The title pretty much sums it up.  I grew up with the original Donkey Kong Country trilogy on the SNES.  I adore these games and have played them countless times over the years.  And while I have managed to get 102% in the second game and 103% in the third game, motivated to do so…

Stuck in Gaming’s Past: A Response Post

When I was reading Cary’s post entitled “I Am the Future of Gaming?”, I couldn’t help but see myself.  For me, too, the future of gaming couldn’t be further from the truth.  Forever stuck in the past, I will often find myself buying a new console just before its predecessor is announced.  More often than…

I Think I’m Finally Bored of New Horizons

After months and months of diligently playing the newest entry to the Animal Crossing series, of carefully crafting the perfect island, decorating the perfect house, and collecting the perfect set of villagers, I think I’m finally bored.  That’s not to say the game isn’t fantastic.  Because I absolutely love it.  But until the next major…

Kirby’s Dream Land 3 Review

For the last ten years, Kirby’s Dream Land 3 and I have kept passing each other by, with no more than mere glances in the other’s direction before ultimately going our separate ways.  Whether in the form of a physical SNES cartridge or a quick download vie the Wii U Virtual Console, I have had…

Could TV Ads Be Coming to Console Games?

I won’t lie.  I can be a rather negative person.  Nevertheless, I have had a certain bad premonition for years about the future of gaming that might be coming true.  In a troubling turn of events, I have learned that TV ads could possibly begin showing up in our console video games!  Yes, including those…

Singing with Animals in Fe

Despite my stubborn love of physical games over digital, I have started to amass a small collection of digital games on the Switch (“amass” meaning about five games, which accounts for about 50% of my entire Switch collection, so…it’s all relative, I suppose).  This all started when I was perusing the Switch eShop out of…
