Character Spotlight: Katrielle Layton

Happy Tuesday! Fairly recently, Kris and I had played through Lady Layton on the Switch. It wasn’t the best game but it did have some pretty great characters. Katrielle Layton, most known as Kat, is a detective following in the footsteps of her father, Professor Hershel Layton. I’m sure you’ve all heard of the Professor […]

Character Spotlight: Tortimer

Happy Tuesday! I have to admit, there’s one character from Animal Crossing that I’ve been missing in New Horizons. Since he’s been long retired anyway, I thought it was appropriate for him to have a chance in the spotlight. Tortimer is a turtle from the Animal Crossing series. He has appeared as the mayor in […]

Character Spotlight: Timmy & Tommy

Happy Tuesday! Today is the last day of 2019. What better way to celebrate than talk about a couple of baby raccoons? Timmy and Tommy (don’t ask me which one is which) are twin brothers who first appeared in the very first Animal Crossing game, Animal Forest (2001) for the Nintendo 64. This game was […]

Character Spotlight: Piranha Plant

Happy Tuesday! For this month, I decided to give some attention to a minor character who has finally gotten their chance in a spotlight in a popular game. Piranha Plant is a common enemy in the Mario franchise. Based off the Venus Flytraps in real, Piranha Plants are plants that will eat anything that comes […]

Character Spotlight: Blue Thieves

Happy Tuesday! I can’t believe January is already just about over. This month went by pretty fast and I had decided to do a character spotlight on these characters since the beginning of the month. The Blue Thieves are an enemy in the Spyro games. They first appeared in Spyro the Dragon (1998) and have […]

Character Spotlight: Waluigi

Happy Tuesday! It’s the last Tuesday of the month which means it’s time for another Character Spotlight! Today I’ll be talking about a Mario character who I’ve never really paid too much attention to. Waluigi first appeared in the Mario Tennis┬áseries for the Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Color way back in 2000/2001 respectively. He […]

Character Spotlight: Luigi

Happy Tuesday! I can’t believe the end of the month is already here. It’s time for another Character Spotlight and I’ve chosen one of my all-time favorites!   Luigi was created as such so the Super Mario games could have a two-player option. They changed Mario’s color scheme, thus coming up with Luigi. He soon […]

Character Spotlight: Fang

It’s Rachel! I thought I would do a fun mini-feature on the blog called “Character Spotlight” where I showcase some of my favorite characters from video games.   Everyone, meet Fang. If you’re an Animal Crossing lover, I’m sure you’ve met him plenty of times before. I started playing Animal Crossing when it first came […]
