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.

Happy Friday, everyone! The year is three-quarters over, and there are about ninety days left until Christmas. Isn’t that crazy? Golden Sun is a game that I need to play again. I never actually owned it, but I remember a friend lending it to me sometime in sixth grade. She scolded me at one point […]

Throwback Thursday: Donkey Konga

Happy Thursday! I still have the bongos. Donkey Konga is a rhythm game that came out for the Nintendo Gamecube in fall 2004 in North America. It starred Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong, of course. The story behind this game is that the two Kongs found bongos, assuming they were barrels and some sort of […]

Happy Friday, everyone! July is almost over and, with it, a little more than half of the year! What are you planning on doing for the rest of 2019?

Throwback Thursday: Wii Sports

Happy Thursday! Ah, the good old Nintendo Wii… everyone’s favorite console. Honestly, I thought it was a good console. I enjoyed it a lot and definitely got plenty of use out of it. Sure, the motion controls could be a pain at times, but I thought it was overall pretty great. The Wii Sports was […]
