Monday Memories: AOL Instant Messenger

Happy Monday, everyone! We’re going back to the past in regards to today’s post. AOL’s instant messenger was alive from May 1997 to December 2017, and I remember using it so often to chat with friends after school during our early high school years. Video games have always been a major source of inspiration for […]

Monday Memories: Game Start

Happy Monday, everyone! Welcome to the first Monday of 2020! I’m being a little nostalgic today, mostly due to the new year and the fact that my birthday is coming up. I started thinking about where my love of gaming all began. I’m going to be 30 years old this year, at the end of […]

Monday Memories: The Electric Tale of Pikachu

Happy Monday, everyone! With Pokemon Sword and Shield came the ability to have Pokemon Dynamax in certain battles in the game. Playing Sword and Shield, though, made me feel as if I’ve seen a Dynamax Pokemon long before the Galar region existed… We’ve been playing a lot of Pokemon Sword and Shield lately, which probably […]

Monday Memories: Legend of Zelda Fanfiction

Happy Monday, everyone! It’s NaNoWriMo — or National Novel Writing Month — an event that happens every November where writers attempt to write 50k words of a new story.

Monday Memories: Ace Up My Sleeve

Monday Memories: Red, Blue, and Yellow

Happy Monday everyone! Today brings us back with another Monday Memories, this one dedicated to the Gameboy Color Pokemon games: Red, Blue, and Yellow.

Monday Memories: Video Game Nights

Happy Monday everyone! It’s a holiday where we are, and we’re hunkered down at home due to snow blanketing the ground outside. It was the perfect weekend to just relax at home with some hot chocolate and good video games. When I first started gaming, I mainly played single-player games. Granted, I think back in […]

Monday Memories: Game Boy Advance

Happy Monday, everyone! The Nintendo Switch and the 2DS XL are our current go-to consoles when it comes to playing games lately. Recently, however, I found my old Game Boy Advance during a cleaning spree, and I remember how much I used the old handheld… The Game Boy Advance was released in 2001 and I […]
