Bringing Peace to Miitopia Once and For All

I’ve finally done it, dear readers!  I have finally completed my grand adventure in Miitopia, at long last!  The Darker Lord has been defeated, and I’ve thoroughly explored the generous post-game as thoroughly as I care to.  I’ll be writing a full review eventually, but for now, this post shall offer a recap of the…

Hanging Around at TGS 2022

It’s been a really tough past couple of years, hasn’t it? All of the pandemic scares and the societal upheavals that came with them really haven’t been good for anyone, have they? I don’t know about you all, but I’ve been dying for things to finally start getting back to normal, and I finally got…

Scarcity in Video Games

It’s probably pretty safe to say that we all like rare items in our games. That is to say, we like acquiring rare items in our games. There’s a sort of rewarding feeling that comes with finally finding, earning or crafting that one item that’s been eluding you all game and thinking about finally getting…

Fable III Co-Op: Better Late Than Never?

With a some extra time on our hands over the recent holiday weekend, my household dug a little further into some multiplayer options through Game Pass. We steered clear of MMOs and looked for local multiplayer and co-op options. In doing so, a huge surprise rose to the top: Fable III. “Wait, WHAT?” was my…

Losing Momentum

I don’t know about you all, but for me finishing a game is all about getting into a groove and staying in it. Sometimes maintaining that groove is easy since the game is so good; sometimes it’s a struggle all the way through, but you’re gonna finish because you spent that $30 to $60, dang…

Animal Crossing Monopoly: Cute, But Complicated

A few months ago, Mother Duck and I accumulated a small collection of classic board games, along with one variation on a classic, the Animal Crossing: New Horizons edition of Monopoly.  (They aren’t exactly a proper replacement for games of the electronic variety, but we imagine they’ll come in quite handy during power outages, at…

Fallout 76: Year Three in Review

In typing up this review of my third year in Fallout 76, one question stalks my mind: is it my last? I know that I won’t be renewing my Fallout 1st sub after it expires next month. I also know that I don’t plan on dedicating a significant portion of my future gaming time to…

Safety Truly is an Illusion in Minecraft

I’ve been playing Minecraft off and on for a very long time now, and I thought that I had it all figured out by now. As far as I knew, any and all challenge in the vanilla survival mode was contained to the opening couple of day/night cycles and specific places like unexplored caves, the…

Saving My Friends in Miitopia

As I make my way through Miitopia, the cute and silly RPG where you choose the faces of every character in the game, my next goal was to travel through the volcanic region of Karkaton, at the end of which we explored the castle of Dark Lord Mr. Bean!  Along the way, my ever-expanding team…
