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’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’m going to do my best not to type in all caps and gush here. After all, I am a writer. I am expected to remain critical at all times. BUT OH MY GOD YOU GUYS I FOUGHT A PRIEST WITH FLAMETHROWERS STRAPPED TO MY ANKLES WHILE HE SUMMONED A GIANT ANGEL DRAGON THAT FOUGHT … More If you need to learn how to talk to a lady, play Bayonetta 2!
This made me laugh. And cry a bit.
So, I’ll admit with no small amount of shame, I didn’t get around to playing Fire Emblem: Awakening until I saw the Lucina reveal trailer for Super Smash Bros. My more recent posts acknowledged my far-too-big video game backlog, and Fire Emblem: Awakening was just another game on that ever-increasing list. It wasn’t because I … More Not-So-Quick Game Review: Fire Emblem: Awakening
And I have no regrets. I’ve made no secret about my love for all things Mario Kart, and number 8 is the second best Mario Kart I’ve played (hard to top Mario Kart DS, a game I bought twice so my brother could play with me). But when Nintendo announced its DLC plans for it, … More I bought the Mario Kart 8 DLC
