Putting Yourself in the Game, or Not…or Never

Joining with masses, I recently took advantage of PlayStation’s holiday sale in picking up Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Online Edition. Outside of the online extras, it was a good deal, and it would finally allow my husband and I to play side-by-side in Los Santos. (Which we’ve been doing, hoo boy, it is ever…

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore – Getting Hyped All Over Again

I’m not really sure how it’s happening, but one of my absolute favorite Wii U games has an enhanced port releasing for the Switch next week! It goes by the ridiculously long name: Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore and is about as outlandish as it sounds. This isn’t a bad thing though, quite the opposite…

Revisiting Nier: Automata

You know, it’s actually kind of crazy to me that’s already been about two whole years since I was first introduced to Nier: Automata. It’s been on my replay list ever since I finished it the first time, and I kind of can’t believe I wasn’t able to work my way back around to it…

Minecraft is Still Incredible!

There are few games that I’m able to come back to year after year and still thoroughly enjoy. Most of them are childhood favorites: Super Mario RPG, Metroid Prime, Majora’s Mask and such. There’s also Minecraft, a game which I never thought I’d like until I tried it. Despite preferring games that offer curated, structured…

Nixing Fallout 76

When I started playing Fallout 76 earlier this year, I didn’t have any real plans with it. I knew that I’d never reach the grandiose levels of some players, but that didn’t matter as much as simply enjoying the wacky, post-apocalyptic world of West Virginia. Truly, Bethesda did create a beautiful gamescape, one that’s really…

The Outer Worlds is the Fallout: New Vegas Sequel I’ve Always Wanted

Two of my favorite games from the PS3/Xbox 360/Wii generation of games are Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. I’d never played anything like them before, and they captured my attention immediately with their large worlds filled with intriguing quests and witty writing. The presentation was a bit wonky and the bugs were numerous, but…

The Quest to Finish Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem

Over the years, I’ve found that there are some games that I just cannot finish no matter how much I want to. Be it poor timing, lack of ability or just a plain ol’ lack of enthusiasm, I’m just not able to get these games done. One of these is the classic Gamecube horror title:…

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is Nintendo at Their Best!

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening has finally made it to Switch, and it’s just about everything a old Zelda fan like myself could want! They’ve kept just about everything that made the game what it was, while also seamlessly weaving-in a few modern conveniences and features. It’s actually kind of strange to play: I…

Favorite Nintendo Character: Link

So far this month we’ve discussed our favorite games and pieces of music produced by Nintendo, so it’s only natural that we move onto what is perhaps their most influential creations: their characters. Great games need great characters, and Nintendo has plenty of these! Mario, Samus, Donkey Kong, Zelda, Fox, Kirby, the list just goes…
