It’s Thanksgiving day in our neck of the woods and we’ve certainly got a lot to be thankful for this year. 2019 was an odd year, to say the least, but the gaming community has been kind to us. As always, we continue to meet some wonderful gamers and get the opportunity to work with them as well.

We’ve done a couple of collaborations this year with some awesome people, and we have more planned for the future. We’re thankful to be able to work with all of you, including Jett from InThirdPerson, Justin from TWOTALL4UFOOL, and a giant collaboration in the works over at Normal Happenings for next year.

We’ve met a lot of wonderful people since beginning this blog, but 2019 was a fun year in particular through the blog as well as live streaming on Twitch. Even though we’re not exactly the best at keeping a consistent streaming schedule, it’s always great to see a few “regulars” pop up into the chat.

krismii
Absolutely. Like Jett and Ian from AdventureRules, and our little chat is continuously growing. It really makes me thankful to see familiar names and people eager to talk about video games and life with us!

Rachel Mii Double Jump
Exactly! Double Jump has grown a lot this year, despite the rocky summer. We’re thankful to each and every one of you who stuck around and reached out throughout all of 2019.

We’re very thankful to be able to do what we’re doing in terms of the blog, Twitch, and our social media. Aside from the amazing people we’re friends with, we’re also thankful for the opportunity to flex our creative muscles while celebrating our gaming hobby. Having this outlet and community has been wonderful.

Rachel Mii Double Jump
We’ve reflected back on 2019 and have thought ahead to 2020. We’re eager to try new things with Double Jump and give back to the gaming community.

So, a big thank you to everyone here and in our other communities — Twitch, Twitter, Tumblr — that helped make 2019 a great year for us!

Unique Blogger Award

Unique Blogger Award

NekoJonez was kind enough to nominate Double Jump for the Unique Blogger Award! He runs a wonderful blog over HERE about all things gaming from his opinion and views to the gaming industry as a whole. Please go check out his blog and give him some love. Thanks again, NekoJonez!

If you were able to erase all memories from one game to be able to fully experience it again, which game would it be and why?

krismii
My obvious response to this question would be a Legend of Zelda game for how epic some of their stories and game play are, but… I think Pokemon Yellow would be my answer for this. It was my first game on my first handheld, the GameBoy Color. While I had grown up watching my uncle, and sometimes my father, play video games, Pokemon Yellow was the first game that I experienced on my own where I could figure out how to move forward while making friends with my Pokemon team. It opened up what video games could be, and despite how strong the Pokemon franchise still is, the basic formula for the games are all the same. Being able to relive all that magic would be amazing.

I would love to fully experience Breath of the Wild again. There’s still so much we have to do in the game, especially with the DLC, but I would love to turn on the game for the first time again. I was amazed at the music and the graphics, let alone the main storyline as well as the gameplay. Even going into Hyrule Castle for the first time… It was so epic!

If you were allowed to help in the production of a game, which role would you take on and why? The role of producer, voice actor, writer, designer…?

krismii
Writer and, perhaps, designer and programmer. I love writing and I want to get better with my art, so designing a game would be a good way to do that, haha! I’m decent at programming as well, and I wouldn’t mind taking on the task of weeding out bugs in a code to ensure a smooth gaming experience.

rachmii
I’d love to be a voice actor and a writer. Writing is my career so I couldn’t imagine not contributing to the script. Voice acting is always something that’s been in the back of my mind. I’d love to give it a go and I am pretty decent at doing multiple voices.

What is one of the earliest video game memories?

krismii
Probably bothering my uncle to play video games so I could watch when I was barely in kindergarten. It was always either Super Mario RPG or Ocarina of Time that I bothered him to play, loving the characters and the stories of both. He was one of the main influences that I picked up a controller on my own (that, and my mother, who decided that I should play the games on my own rather than wake up my uncle, who was usually napping to prepare for his third shift job!).

Rachel Mii Double Jump
This is a tough one. I remember playing the SNES at my grandparents’ house – Street Fighter, Super Mario Kart, and watching Kris play Super Mario RPG. However, the first game I played and completed myself was Paper Mario for the Nintendo 64. Those were certainly good times.
