YouTube Highlights: Weekly Edition #4

Don’t know about you, but we sure are happy to be bringing another week to a close. And what a week it’s been for fans of Mass Effect! Hope everyone who got their hands on Mass Effect: Andromeda is having a good time with it. Back here in planet Earth, we’ve been adding lots to…

YouTube Highlights: Weekly Edition #3

Thank you all for joining us on this lovely Friday (Happy St. Patrick’s Day to those celebrating!) for another look back at our week in YouTube. All in all, it was a solid week. Even with the end of the cutest game in the world (probably), Kirby’s Return to Dreamland, we ventured on with a…

Listmas 2016: An Ode to Sidekicks

In this season of giving and good will towards all, it would only be fair for at least one Listmas list to give some attention to the oft under-appreciated sidekicks of gaming.  It can be easy for said sidekicks to get lost within the shadow of the more famed hero of the game, but that…

Zelda-Ween: Top 3 Creepy Dungeons

Last week, we discussed the many spooky enemies that reside in the land of Hyrule (or Termina, as the case may be).  Well, oftentimes, creepy creatures live in creepy places, and when you think of scary locations in the Zelda series, more often than not you think of the dungeons these games are known for. …

Zelda-Ween: Top 5 Most Notable Scary Enemies

Even though The Legend of Zelda series doesn’t typically come to mind when you think of horror, I’m sure all fans of the series have noticed that these games have more than their fair share of creepy creatures.  In fact, whenever I think about scary enemies in video games, more often than not, my thoughts…

Making Nice With the Twilight Princess: 10 Years Later

  This November marks the tenth anniversary of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Earlier this year, Nintendo released an HD version of the game on the Wii U. Although Breath of the Wild is what’s in the news, it’s really been the year of Twilight, and that’s a big part of why I decided…

Resonance: Sky Waltz

Over on UWG’s Youtube channel, I have been covering Kirby’s Return to Dreamland for the Wii, a game I hadn’t played in probably a good five years.  As with all Kirby games, this one is bright and cheery and all around adorable, and I had such a great time with it, in fact, that this…

Nintendo and I: Is the End is Nigh?

Three years ago, I contemplated why I had not yet established a relationship with the Wii U. The console had then been out for number of months, and as a self-prescribed “super” Nintendo fan, I had yet to jump on the Wii U bandwagon. Though I was enamored with the likes of Super Mario 3D…

Making Nice with the Twilight Princess: Update #4.2

Greetings, all! It’s time to get back to talking about The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess! When I left off last time, I promised to get things moving along with the second half of the game. I can’t stress enough how much better things are going for me in this portion of the game. Maybe…

Making Nice with the Twilight Princess: Update #4.1

Isn’t it about time for more action with Link and the fight against darkness? I’ll say it is! Because between my last update and now, I think I’ve made pretty good progress in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. And by “pretty good,” I mean that a couple more dungeons are finally in the bag….

[REVISITED] The Wiimote and Me: An Onerous Ode

Following up on my most recent Twilight Princess update and the issues I’m having with the Wiimote and the Lakebed Temple boss Morpheel, I decided this week to re-share an article I wrote (from April 25, 2013) that’s all about this dastardly controller. (Actually, it was, and can be a pretty fun controller…when it works….

Making Nice with the Twilight Princess: Update #3

Lest you think I’ve totally forgotten about Link and the shadow realm, I’m back with another The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess update!  Now, I wasn’t lying when I said it’d probably take me longer than normal to get through this game. Even this update might be a meager one comparatively in terms of content….
