Listmas 2022: Cary’s coziest picks

If the onset of winter each year conjures one and only one feeling, it has to be the need to feel cozy. Bundled up. Safe and warm. Maybe a fireplace crackles in the background or a warm beverage sits nearby. The surrounding space could be tight, or it could be expansive – either way, the…

Listmas 2022: The Duck’s Coziest Fireplaces

There are few things more relaxing than curling up under a warm blanket by the dancing glow of a fireplace, hot cocoa in hand, while snow piles up outside.  And of course, my favorite thing to do while relaxing in such a fashion is to play video games.  But if I could be transported to…

When Does a Game Become ‘Unfair’?

If you’ve been playing games for a long time, you’ve almost certainly had a “BS” moment.

There May Be Such a Thing as “Too Much Pokemon”

You know, Pokemon is kind of amazing. Despite all predictions for multiple decades now, the franchise remains the single most popular and profitable entertainment property in the world. Seriously. The pokemon craze that started all the way back in the mid-90s is still going strong almost 30 years later! Wow! What’s even more amazing is…

Resonance: Eorzea de Chocobo

Real talk: giant, flightless birds aren’t my jam. I don’t really have any problems with them per se, but I’m not one to expend extra effort to seek out their company. I harbor the same feelings for most fowl – they exist, I exist, we can exist together on the same planet but not necessarily…

Mod Removes Ed Sheeran from Pokemon Scarlet/Violet Credits

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is has been having issues across the board since its recent launch, and quite a few fans are upset with it.
