Rundown (12/03-12/09) Rest Before the Final Battle!

Next week is going to be a hectic one for me.  I have finals, work, and, of course, surgery all scheduled, and am scattering to get everything done in time.  And seeing as how the The Game Awards were held this past week, I’ve got a lot of news to get through.

Rundown (9/24-9/30) A 13-Year-Old Dream Lives On!

I believe that I have talked about how back when I was around the ages of 12 – 14, I was a big fan of a lot of Newgrounds flash animations, amateur made cartoons that often took the form of video game parodies, and provided one of my friends and I with countless hours of enjoyment.  One of my favorite series from back then was TTA or TVTome Adventures, a story driven and incredibly ambitious series centered around a convoluted anime-esque story about people playing a virtual reality MMO based loosely on the online interactions of a bunch of teenagers.  It was a 73.5 episode saga created primarily by one person, Chris Niosi, throughout his high school years, along with other various flash cartoons.   Continue reading

Rundown (7/23-7/29) Much Ado About Rambles

Seeing as how this week had little in the way of news that I cared about, I ended up doing a lot of rambling about two specific topics I have some level of passion behind, but do not fall into the category of gaming news that has come to define these Rundowns.  Sorry about that, but this is my segment, and I’ll talk about whatever I goldarn want to.

Little King’s Story Review

20160811223016_1Little King’s Story is among my favorite Wii games, and while I technically reviewed this game way back when, I generally look upon my writing during that time in a very negative light, and with a PC version recently coming out, I figured it was as good a time as any to revisit this delightful game, and I’m not too surprised by how I feel about it.

Xenoblade Chronicles Review

00This is a review that has been looming over me for roughly four years now.  I originally bought Xenoblade at launch after the participating in Operation Rainfall, planned on reviewing it, but after seventy hours with the game my disc drive broke, and my interest in the game dissolved as complications delayed repairs.  So the game was dropped, and I always felt bad for not finishing it.  Now, four years later, I decided to replay the game using the Dolphin emulator and an HD texture pack.  About a hundred hours afterwards, I really wish I had cleared this game years ago, if only so I wouldn’t have spent the past few weeks rushing to finish it.

Rundown (2/23-3/01) I Am Replaying Pokemon FireRed with Nuzlocke Rules

The Proper Pokemon NumberingI have a secret past time that I may have only ever told one person about, and I just spent about ten hours making it easier on me, because I lost something tied to it.  What this secret thing is, however, should be pretty obvious if you look in between the lines I laid out and if you steal my computer… although the punishment I would deal on you for that would be on par if you deleted my Pokemon X file after I finally got all 713 obtainable Pokemon… obtainable for me at least.  Now I’m six hours into Pokemon Firered, this time with Nuzlocke rules.
