To Be In Control

Happy Monday, everyone! I apologize for no solo posts last week. This whole virus nonsense has been throwing many people — myself included — for a loop, particularly where my day job is concerned. Diving into video games has been my go-to coping method. When Rachel and I decided to do a themed month of […]

For The Sake Of Game Reviews

2019 has been funny so far. We reviewed a handful of games on the blog in 2016, when Double Jump first started. We reviewed more in 2017. We reviewed even more in 2018. We would love to review even more games in 2019. However, that hasn’t been the case. We’ve barely kept up with out […]

Of Kingdom Hearts

Happy Monday! We’re actually in Disneyworld right now! Being around Mickey Mouse and his friends reminded me of the popular video game franchise Kingdom Hearts, an ambitious crossover of Disney characters published by Square Enix. I’ve only ever touched upon the Kingdom Hearts games when I was much younger. Having never owned the games myself, […]

Reality is Broken

Happy Monday, everyone! It’s the end of the first month of 2018. I hope you’re all doing well and that everything has been working in your favor so far. Here’s to the rest of the year! A book I’ve been reading lately is Reality is Broken by Jane McGonigal. It depicts why video games are […]

Confession: I Don't Like Z-Moves

Happy New Year, everyone! May 2018 treat you even better than 2017 did! We’re going to dive right into my perhaps controversial thoughts regarding a major feature of the latest generation of Pokemon games.
