Death Stranding: Fulfillment

COVID has put my gaming all over, but it definitely put it front and center. With the day job grinding to a near halt, it was pretty much hanging out with the family, playing video games, and writing. I’ve gotten through Final Fantasy VII:… Continue Reading “Death Stranding: Fulfillment”

Here’s disc 2 of the soundtrack. Check that out while you read other… Continue Reading “Final Fantasy VII Remake: How it all ends and begins”

Pokemon Sword/Shield Review

I’ve been playing a lot of Pokemon Shield. The game makes Pokemon trainers out to be the amazing they are. With the game taking place in a world inspired by England, battles take place in soccer (or futball) inspired stadiums. Massive crowds cheer you… Continue Reading “Pokemon Sword/Shield Review”

Mario and Sonic Olympics

I picked up Mario and Sonic Olympics. It looked like a cool party game, I’m adding it to Mario Party/Racing and Smash Bros. I know that Nintendo does an amazing job at creating silly, fun to play mini games set in a world which… Continue Reading “Mario and Sonic Olympics”

Dark Pokemon: Farfetch’d

Pokemon Red

I got Pokemon: Red on my 3DS. Originally it was to let my nephew play from the beginning, but kids love their pretty graphics, and so he was bored quickly. I upgraded him to Diamond, and he seems to accept that leap, despite his complaints he… Continue Reading “Pokemon Red”

Pokemon Sun and Moon Demo

The demo came out today. I’ve been waiting for it as they show more and more of the features. It looked like a living world that wasn’t just battles and a few side missions like coordinating. Instead of battling to the equivalent of a… Continue Reading “Pokemon Sun and Moon Demo”
