This is an ongoing series about my experience playing The Sims 4 for the first time. For other previous posts in the series, click here and here.

You Can Try Dreams For Free Right Now

Video game creation…game? Dreams is now free to try for anyone who wants to take a crack at developing their first game.

Since Cuphead‘s release in 2017, the game has become known for two major things, its 1930’s art style and high difficulty.  Now that I, too, have suffered through the many challenging bosses of Cuphead, I thought it would be fun to rank all 19 from easiest to the ones that walloped me the most thoroughly. …

Cuphead: A Swell Time

When Cuphead was originally released in 2017, people just wouldn’t stop talking about it.  And based on the screenshots I had seen, the game looked cool enough with its 1930’s style graphics.  Nevertheless, I was never actually tempted to try it myself, but rather decided to watch a playthrough of the game on YouTube.  And…

Animal Crossing: New Horizons and My Quest for the Perfect Island

As this is my third week in a row writing about Animal Crossing: New Horizons, it’s probably safe to say that I’m still thoroughly addicted to the game. There’s just so much to work on that I find myself chasing different things each day I log in. Some days I want to make some bells,…
