Here’s how you use the 3DS Badge Grab Center

I found the best thing last night, when I updated my Japanese 3DS XL. Nintendo’s been moving towards allowing all kinds of customization on the system, what with the introduction of Themes, and has taken another step forward with The Badge Grab Center. What’s that? It’s an application that lets people acquire decorations, new icons, more »


Skyrim should be Game of the Year again

Look, I know that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim came out in 2011, and the came out in 2013. And yes, a game has to have come out this year in order to win game of the year for 2014. But I have some very good arguments why Skyrim should still be able to be more »

On Final Fantasy VII and Price Gouging

So it’s come to my attention that when they release Final Fantasy VII for the PS4, it’s going to be a whopping $15.99. That’s not incredibly expensive. It’s not exactly cheap,sure, but it’s not a great deal of money. Except, when you look at the Steam price, you find that the game is only . more »

5 Games I want that will never be made

We all have a list like this, I think. A list of games that we would absolutely adore, and play the living hell out of, yet we know that they’ll probably never be made.

I want Skyrim’s Penitus Oculatus Armor without being evil

As I think I’ve made abundantly clear, I love playing pretty princess dress me up. I will use armors that are clearly inferior, stat wise, because I like the way they look. I will base entire characters on a single weapon I feel like using. This sort of thing is normal to me. Unfortunately, there’s more »

How can Angry Birds be 5?

I’m in shock. I don’t know if it’s my body readjusting from Central to Pacific, then back to Central time or what, but I can’t believe that the Angry Birds franchise is now five years old. There are children out there who have never known a world without Angry Birds. It’s so hard to believe. more »

I beat The Kahdir in Rogue Legacy!

A little while back, I purchased Rogue Legacy. It’s exactly the kind of game I normally hate, because I normally dislike games that feel punishingly hard. Something about Rogue Legacy, however, doesn’t feel punishing. It’s incredibly difficult, of course. And I die an awfully large number of times. But it doesn’t feel like it punishes more »


After 987 hours, I started stealing from Skyrim trainers

When I play Skyrim, I often do a lot of personal role playing. I concoct a story in my head about my character, who they are, why they do the things they do, and what their purpose for adventuring is. I use these ideas to decide what dungeons I’ll explore, or what missions I’ll follow. more »

Cats dig Octodad

This is Octodad. He’s the star of Octodad: Dadliest Catch. You can find it on the PC, PS4, and eventually even the Vita. But this particular Octodad is one I purchased at the PlayStation Experience this past weekend. He was supposed to be my souvenir. You know, a little something special. Especially since I didn’t more »

I had to go to Vegas for a Pokemon EON Ticket

Good news if you’re searching for a Pokemon EON Ticket via StreetPass. There’s hope for you yet. It may start getting easier to find one for Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby. How do I know? Well, I happened to get one! It involved a bit of a journey, but it happened! Of course, I more »
