Tomorrow is Mar10 Day! How are You Celebrating?

Happy almost Mar10 Day! It’s a day that I tend to forget about until the actual day arrives. I’ve always enjoyed the pun of Mar10 Day but I’ll be honest, I’ve never been too in tune with it. I’m far more interested in Pokemon Day. This isn’t to say I don’t like Mario, of course, […]

The Making of a Great Console

For today’s post, I was taking a look at the video games exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. Since the Nintendo Switch console is now four years old and was one of the best-selling consoles — including the Switch Lite version — of 2020. Indeed, the PS5 and Xbox Series X may not be able to […]

Pokemon Presents and Our Thoughts on the Future

  On Friday, February 26, 2021, one day before Pokemon Day, we finally got some news from the Pokemon Company about some new things happening in the Pokemon world. The roughly 20-minute direct was less than I expected, but I was happy with the announcements. And I say I expected more because I thought they […]

Pokemon of the Day

Does anyone remember when generation five of Pokemon, the Unova region, came out? I do. Kris and I laid in our beds, turned on the games in unison, and were totally baffled at the graphics. We enjoyed the music, though it was totally awesome that the Pokemon moved during battles, and we thought it was […]

Remembering The Nintendo 3DS Streetpass

The Nintendo Switch’s main gimmick is its ability to “switch” between handheld and docked mode. It allows players to experience video games on their bigger television screens or on the go. Considering the portability of the Switch was such a big selling point, it made business sense for Nintendo to produce the handheld-only Switch Lites. […]

Playing Games with the Children

I was always “player two” growing up. Kris had the controls and I grew up watching her play various games such as Super Mario RPG any game from The Legend of Zelda series. When I was finally able to join her in these games, I was “player two” or the “sidekick.” When something was hard, […]

Top 5 Nintendo Direct Announcements

The Nintendo Direct on February 17th was, in my opinion, decent. Were there announcements that I wished to see? Of course. Unless Nintendo calls to ask me what they should talk about, I do my best not to be so expectant of certain announcements that I leave a Nintendo Direct disappointed enough to be upset. […]

Legend of Zelda 35th Anniversary Predictions

Why, yes, Pokemon Day is February 27th and here we are talking about the Legend of Zelda. Because, hey, the Legend of Zelda franchise is also celebrating an anniversary this year! While Pokemon is turning 25 this year, the Legend of Zelda is ten years older and hitting 35. There are tons of rumors circulating […]

I Can’t Run in Games

If you know me, then you know I’m not the best at video games. I picked a good hobby, didn’t I? Kris and I recently finished playing through Super Mario RPG on our Twitch channel. This wasn’t our first rodeo with the game. I grew up watching Kris play this game over and over again. However, […]
