The one video game I got for Christmas this year was Persona Q: Shadow the Labyrinth. I waited until Christmas for it for several reasons—my parents needed something to get me, and because I wouldn’t’ve had time to tackle it until after the holiday anyway. So, while some people have been playing this game for … More I can’t put Persona Q down!
I won’t say I’ve taken a break from Super Smash Bros (one does not simply stop playing Smash) but when not playing that, I’ve been playing some Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Wii. My history with this game is a bit strange. I had rented it from Gamefly shortly after it came out (back … More Playing Donkey Kong Country Returns
Incoming positively-charged rant about Smash. Prepare yourself. So, after much crying, sighing, deals with the devil, and so on, I managed to get myself a Gamecube adapter for Super Smash Bros for WiiU. And holy hell, this the way the game was meant to be played! The moment I picked up my wavebird, everything in … More Oh yes, I do so enjoy the Superb Smashing Brothers!
And the last time I shop there. In the past, I’ve spoken in favor of GameStop whenever they came up in conversation. I’ve always felt that, yes, they offer you very little in exchange for your used games, but I’ve never felt like I was forced to accept their offer. Much like haggling on a … More That’s the last time I pre-order a game at GameStop
So, I told myself last week that I was done blogging about Bayonetta 2. It was time to move on, I said, and despite the fact that I’ve played little else since the game was released, surely I had said all I could on the subject. It’s a brilliant game, and after all, there are … More Let’s talk about Bayonetta 2’s ranking system
I had no intention of buying Hyrule Warriors when it was released. I hadn’t ever played a Dynasty Warriors game, or any of its many sequels/spin-offs. But I had heard enough negative buzz about the series to be turned away. I heard that its combat was simple, repetitive, with no depth or nuance to it. … More Hyrule Warriors: A simple, but surprisingly addictive game
I’ve debated with myself numerous times over whether I would chime in on the recent controversies that have been plaguing the video game community. Every time I went to write a post, I always stopped before I started, deciding that I was no expert on these subjects, and would likely write something based on false … More Comments on the recent video game controversies
Short post this week, but one that I personally find pretty interesting. Jordan Devore of Destructoid.com mentioned in a post about a week ago that he was not playing Destiny, and was instead playing Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, a game he had gotten for free from Nintendo as part of their ambassadors program. He … More Feels like I’m playing the game for the very first time!
How do you define a favorite video game? Is it the one that filled you with the most inspiration? If that’s the case, then the clear winner would be Skies of Arcadia, a JRPG for the Dreamcast that presented a bright world full of wonder and possibility. Even now, when I take a step back … More My favorite video game: Sonic 3 and Knuckles
This made me laugh. And cry a bit.
