Just last week, I wrote a blog about coming back from a vacation from not only work, but also social media and blogging and the rest. I had closen to two weeks off from all of that stuff, and it was just what I needed to recharge the batteries. Strangely enough, however, I find myself … More Vacations are never long enough
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
Well, it’s that time of the year! The time when ABC Family becomes something worth watching, the time when all the stores are full of people struggling to find a gift that their acquaintance who they barely know won’t hate, and time to string up a ton of lights that may or may not light … More Musing about Christmas
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!
It’s kind of funny how I have a specified writing time, and I can usually count on my brain to prepare itself for that time on its own. I may not think about my writing for the entire day, but during my hour and a half train ride, usually I focus purely on my writing … More Turbulent Week
AND IT WAS AWESOME. :D This was my fifth TSO concert, and like the previous five times before this, I left the show feeling a sense of amazement and awe at what I had just seen. The show is truly mesmerizing, from the way the lights and sounds sync to the music, to the sheer … More Saw Trans-Siberian Orchestra over the weekend
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
Short blog post today, because I honestly want to get back to the subject of this blog, rather than talk about it. But today I pose a question to you. Do you enjoy the creative process? Now, before you slam your way to the comments section with your answer, I want you to seriously consider … More Do you enjoy the creative process?
I’d like to bring up a discussion I had with one of my video gamer friends a few days back regarding the value of a video game. Specifically, what would justify the purchase of a sixty dollar full-console experience. I was talking about how I would spend sixty smackers on Bayonetta 2, Mario Kart, Smash, … More Do you need a story in your video game?
I’ve said before on this blog how I do most of my writing every morning on my 1 ½ hour train ride to work. This has become a hard habit of mine, and it’s gotten to the point where if I don’t do writing here, my whole day feels soured and wasted. While this is … More Writing outside of my writing spot
