This is Not a Post about Bloodborne

Let me be clear from the start – I may have played Bloodborne, but I did not play Bloodborne. Let me explain. What happened was that, a couple weekends ago, I had a moment after watching a number of Elden Ring videos in which I thought I could totally do that. I really don’t know…

Helping the Fab Fairies in Miitopia

I recently recorded part 3 of my Miitopia playthrough, which saw the formation of my third and, presumably, final team.  This time, I created all three of my new team members’ Mii’s, with their identities being as follows.  Charlotte, the energetic cat, joined the team first.  She is actually meant to resemble my character from…

First (and Maybe Last) Impressions of DC Universe Online

In my household’s ongoing quest to find enjoyable multiplayer outings, we’ve found plenty of fodder. But lately, continued interest on both our parts has taken a dive. It Takes Two was a great thing, but not one to revisit; Bethesda’s offerings of ESO and Fallout 76 haven’t drawn either of us in lately (despite my…

I’m Still Not a Big Fan of Super Mario 64

I don’t really like Super Mario 64.  There, I said it.  I understand that the game was a big deal for its time, considering it was one of the first 3D platformers ever made.  While that is certainly something to be admired, I never really had the best opinion of this game.  In fact, I…

Dr. Loboto, Swaine, and Freddy Join the Duck in Miitopia

I’m still working my way through Miitopia, a charming RPG where you can choose the faces of every character in the game.  Very soon, our Youtube playthrough shall be taking a break, which will be temporary or permanent depending on the views.  I’ve already written a review about the demo, and now I’d like to…

Playing to Get it Done

In a major departure from my usual gaming habits, I’ve been putting major hours into Elden Ring over the past couple of weeks. Seriously, I went from playing maybe 10 hours per week at most to nearly 30+! As it stands, my character is level 165 with just over 136 hours logged on it, and…

Choosing My Own Adventure in Fallout 76

When I last wrote about Fallout 76 in November, I had given an “eh, so what?” to its newest mode, Fallout Worlds. Since then, I’ve only been back to Worlds (Private Worlds) once, cajoling my husband to formulate our own world and give it a go. That go lasted a single session, and we’ve not…

When Game Recommendations Go Wrong

When one shares a hobby with their friends, it’s inevitable that you’ll want to make recommendations now and again. Be it movies, books, anime or any number of other media, we have this impulse to share things we like with people we think will appreciate it. Of course, not all recommendations pan out well. Sometimes…

I Play Video Games Wrong

When I played The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I eventually did everything I could to avoid the Lynels, Centaur-like creatures that dotted Hyrule. I say “eventually” because I didn’t avoid them at first. At first, I was ready and willing to take on these difficult beasts with my dinky wooden sword, because…
