If you’ve been following my blog, you’ve probably noticed that there’s been an exteme lack of posts so far this year. My life got really busy and the fact of the matter is, I don’t make any money of this site, so it has to be a thing I do for fun when I find time rather than a priority. The good news is, things are finally starting to calm down, so I’m recommitting to putting out the same amount of content that I used to! Continue reading
A few days ago, Nintendo released a demo for Kirby Star Allies on the European eShop, but for us Americans who didn’t want to bother with making a European profile, it just came out today. I’ve always really liked Kirby, especially Kirby’s Adventure on the NES, so I’ve been really looking forward to the pink puffball’s debut on the Nintendo Switch. Now that the demo is out, we can get a pretty good idea of how the game is shaping up. Continue reading
There’s been a lot of games based on the Dragon Ball series of manga and anime. A lot of them aren’t very good, and even the ones that are tend to be more fun fan service, rather than an actual good video game. That all changed this year when the creators of Guilty Gear and Blazblue, Arc System Works, released Dragon Ball FighterZ. Continue reading
I’m no stranger to crazy Nintendo-related speculation. I spent almost two years reading every Nintendo NX “leak” or theory or whatever I could find. What happened over the last few days was that all over again, except this time it was in a much smaller amount of time. Continue reading
There will be a Nintendo Direct this month. I mean, they haven’t actually said that they’re going to, but they are. It just makes sense. We’re coming up on the one year anniversary of their Nintendo Switch event, which basically spelled out their plans for 2017. Plus there’s been a ton of leaks, one of which is an internal timeline for marketing the game Fe that straight up says that it’ll be shown during the January Direct. So, it’s happening. But what will be shown, and more importantly, what do I want to be shown?
Man, if it doesn’t happen, this is the dumbest start to an article. Continue reading
This was a much crazier year than last year. When I had to make my top ten last year, I had only played a total of thirteen games all year. That’s how games I don’t even particularly like, such as Pokemon Go, made it on to my list. This year, I’ve played over thirty. That means that not only did I have to make way more cuts, but there isn’t a single game on here that I didn’t love. That’s better if you ask me. Continue reading
Have you ever liked a game despite itself? Like, you know it’s nothing special, but for some reason, it captures your attention anyway. That’s me with Sonic Forces, a mediocre at best 3D platformer that managed to keep a smile on my face the entire game. If you’d hear me out, I’d like to try to explain why. Continue reading
