A Few Times When Wii Motion Controls Were Actually Good

Like many of us, the Wii motion controls were something special when I first purchased the Wii and got to witness the Wiimote and nunchuck in action.  But, as my gaming library grew, I quickly began to realize that…motion controls, more often than not, meant little more than having to shake the controller in order…

Challenge Mode: Racing Canary Mary

Though gaming is easily my favorite hobby, there are a few things about it that I really don’t enjoy.  At the top of the list are any challenges that require me to press buttons quickly.  As silly as it sounds, I absolutely hate having to do this, as my weak noodle arms do not possess…

Day 21: Game with the Best Story

Once again, I am slowly working my way through 30 days’ worth of video game topics.  And once again, I am taking the task far too seriously.  The next topic on the list is the game with the best story, which is an exceedingly difficult question, if you ask me.  I mean, there are so…

Playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf with Mother Duck

Ever since its origin on the GameCube, Animal Crossing has always been one of those few games that both Mother Duck and I enjoy playing.  While she prefers more peaceful games like Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon, it is rare for me to play a game that doesn’t involve some grand adventure, platforming, RPG, or…

Mysterious Squirrels in Sly Cooper 4

Yesterday, I was working on my second playthrough of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time when something bizarre happened.  I was in the third location, the Ice Age, just running around, looking for the final clue bottle.  And then it happened…

Challenge Mode: Fighting Dark Yabu in Vexx

A good deal of the time, I’m not a big fan of boss fights.  Many of them are long and tedious and generally not a whole lot of fun.  Other times, they are brutally difficult, and when these battles are of the final-boss variety, it’s only my obsessive desire to finish everything I start that…

A Ni no Kuni Movie?

It seems like a lot of video games have been adapted into movies lately, and fortunately, this one is not live action.  That’s right, folks, they’re apparently making a Ni no Kuni movie, which is, thankfully, keeping the animated look of the games.  The only unfortunate thing…right now, there’s no word of it being released…

Ni no Kuni II: A Review

Christmas is always the best time for catching up on all the games I missed, and one such game that I was able to obtain thanks to Christmas of 2018 was Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom.  Though I was a big fan of the first game on the PS3, I’ll admit I was rather…

KH3 Disney Worlds Ranked

Hey there, everyone.  I am still trying to fill the empty void that was left in my life once I completed Kingdom Hearts 3, so why not enjoy a ranking of every world in the game?  When choosing what order in which to rank these worlds, I took into consideration many factors, including the story…

Sonic’s Getting a Live Action Movie

In recent years, live action adaptations have been quite the trend.  Disney has been producing live action remakes of their animated features, there’s a live action Detective Pikachu movie in the works, and now…Sonic the Hedgehog is getting the same treatment.
