  • 4 Art Styles I Want to See More Of

    5

     

    More
    A strong art style can make or break a game for me. It can also make or break any piece of animation. It’s no secret that I watch animated shows and movies almost as much as I do live action. Over the years I’ve fallen in love with certain... More

    The Fourth of July – if I didn’t have such a love for Christmas movies it would probably be my favorite holiday. It’s not that I’m particularly patriotic, I just have a thing for fireworks and summer nights. There’s something... More
  • Community Writing Challenge: All About the Aesthetic

    More
    It’s been awhile since I did a CWC and this was the perfect one to jump back into the swing of things with – I’ll never pass up an opportunity to talk about how much I love games with a strong aestheticism and art direction. Games have... More
  • The Waiting Game

    More
    I like to think that I’m a patient person. That I’m the kind of person that finds something to do while I wait for that circle to stop spinning or for that bar to hit 100%. Of course, just because I try to be patient, it doesn’t mean... More
  • Wonder Woman Review: A Superhero Movie In the Best Way

    More
    It’s been over a week since I saw Wonder Woman in theaters and this review has been written and rewritten more than I’d like to admit. This movie left me at a loss for words – or rather, it made me feel like all of the words I came up... More
  • Thanks Dad

    More
    Games are filled with so many great dads and father figures. Just look at the new God of War – fatherhood is worth making a whole game around. I thought about talking about some of my favorite game dads, but I’d rather write about mine. *... More
  • Annoyances You Won’t Find in Games

    More
    It’s no secret that people use games as a form of escapism. It’s a way to ignore problems in your personal life, or in the world in general. But, games also allow us to play through characters that don’t have to deal with minor annoyances... More

    Yellow, Crystal, Emerald, Platinum… these

    More
    Yellow, Crystal, Emerald, Platinum… these have always been my favorite Pokémon games. The third game Pokémon game in a generation is a special thing – but the Pokémon Company has seemingly done away with them. And I want... More

    More

    I scare very easily and I always have. It’s not just that jump scares work on me, but even loud noises can freak me out. Perhaps scared isn’t even the right word – I startle easily. Semantics aside, I’ve decided that the best way... More
  • Why I’m Anxious About Wonder Woman

    More
    We are one day away from seeing Wonder Woman on the big screen and although I’m excited, I’m also really nervous – but not for the reasons you may think. I’m not worried about the movie being bad and I’m not concerned about... More

    As strange

    More
    As strange as it is to say, I’m viewing this summer as my “last summer”. In a few months, I’ll be moving to a new city to start a new life where I’m not in school, away from home, and completely outside of my comfort zone... More

    Well, tonight’s the night: the worldwide premiere of the 13 th season of the Bachelorette! If you don’t think that watching 31 men compete for the hand and heart of one woman isn’t the best way to spend your Monday night, then you wouldn’t... More
