This has been a rough year for many of us. The pandemic, the political discourse, people are tense and often at each other's throat. I too have felt this a lot. There's many things that are bothering me to no end right now. All of this is making people here on edge and some are leaving because of it. I personally don't think this whole thing is worth leaving over. The whole world is basically in a distraught state so this is simply a case of the wind blowing in a certain direction. It isn't good
Baboom. The new commission that I have been hinting at is now complete. The artist did an amazing job, completely nailing the kind of vibe I was going for, a vibe that is happy and playful, something that some of my past Kyoshi pieces of art haven't embraced. I don't know if they want me to mention them by name or linking to them, they didn't mention that so I will not do so right now, but I am very grateful for people like them. They allow someone like me to have this kind of expression through
As some may know, I have decided that I am not going to watch the last season of Friendship is Magic. Was giving it a think last night and I wanted to make it clear as to why I have made this choice. Obviously, watching a show that I love and has had such a huge impact on me come to an end isn't exactly the most uplifting of things. The way Hasbro has been pushing this fact has also been a troubling thing, pushing so hard that this is the final season even though we already know this. The initia
Let me get this out of the way right now. Sekiro Shadows Die Twice is a colossal disappointment. The newest game from a developer I like a lot, From Software, makers of Dark Souls and they have made probably their most piss-poor effort since Dark Souls 2. I haven't finished the game yet, but I have certainly played enough to have a firm judgement on the game.
What do I like? The pure combat itself, I do at least like that. It is fast, visceral as hell and when you are flowing it together, i
Yeah, this is a bit sudden, but this is a thing I have been wanting to do for ages and this subject is perfect for it. I made this video talking about how I think Apex Legends is a clear sign of gamer hypocrisy.
What do you all think? How did I do? I would love to continue doing this because I am quite passionate about gaming.
Was recently having a sort of 'conversation' that become more of a rant with someone. About the sad state of gaming and how Battle Royale is contributing to this Gaming Great Depression. I'll try to just abridge what I said in that discussion here:
With the recent release of Apex Legends by Respawn, I love how much everyone is already worshipping the game like a god. If you dare criticize the game for being yet another unoriginal and soulless battle royale game, you get flamed like crazy. I
And after completing it, which took me around 16 hours, I can safely say this; World of Light is one of the most pathetic, repetitive, unfun, unfair, worthless, padded out, masturbatory modes I have EVER played. THIS is how to you do EVERYTHING wrong in a so called 'adventure mode'. Where the hell to do I even begin with this shit?
World of Light is a total joke. Whereas other fighting games are trying their best these days to have engaging stories connected by fights, this mode tries to ha
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, simply put, is nowhere near as good as everyone is raving about. While this game does have a lot of positive points and good amount of content, it has so many issues that pile on quickly and ruin a lot of the fun atmosphere this game is supposed to have. First and foremost are the horrendous spirits. This incredibly stupid addition replaces the trophies of past games and it is garbage. Rather than being about collecting things and it being fun in that sense, it is all
I just watched a critique of Fame and Misfortune, an episode I hate. This is that video:
This person didn't like the episode either, but instead of focusing on the episode's real problems like the terrible writing, bad characterizations, bringing up stuff that makes no sense, he mainly brought up and chastised the one thing the episode kinda has going for it, the message. The message of accepting yourself despite your flaws. He didn't like that at all. Opinions are opinions but..w
So some of you may have seen the blog post I made recently. About Atari being greedy beyond comparison by crowdfunding a horrendous port of Rollercoaster Tycoon Touch, a terrible mobile game, for the Switch. If you have not seen that blog, check it out here first: https://mlpforums.com/blogs/entry/23099-rollercoaster-tycoon-on-switch-the-worst-thing-ever/
Thing is, IT ACTUALLY GETS WORSE! Somehow. On their StartEngine campaign page, Atari recently updated it with a new 'Q&A' to answer p
Atari has apparently been on a mission to murder the beloved Rollercoaster Tycoon franchise, one of my all time favorite games EVER. They pretty much were successful with the crowdfunded disaster of Rollercoaster Tycoon World and then proceeded to put a few more bullets into the series with Rollercoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile, a horrendous mobile pile of trash.
Well, Atari is back at it again. They have come back to now parade the corpse of RCT around like some puppet in a horrific nightmare fun-
2017, what a year. Gaming was big, really big. New Nintendo console, amazing games, some corporate craziness that pizza'd off the gaming world...Which reminds me, I might be starting a new split up blog post purchase service, Blog Boxes. Sounds like a good idea no?
Anywho, bad games. Those happened like they do every year. Games like Road Rage and Hello Neighbor were apparently really trashMcnasty, but I didn't play those. I actually didn't play a whole lot of bad games this year, not many
Doom has recently been released for the Nintendo Switch. Reading reviews of the game, it seems to be hitting good notes overall, but there are some criticisms. Seeing these criticisms, and some of the limitations of the Switch made me think of something. Gamers these days love to compare their gaming preferences to each other, battling for some kind of superiority. That is human nature, really. We love to compete. It sadly takes a tone of negativity among gamers, it goes too far. People for year
I will say this right off the Flutterbat, the Xbox One X being smaller than S is very impressive. This definitely shows with how heavy the system is, which it is surprisingly somewhat heavy. Seems a lot was put into such a small unit to make it work and it seems to work wonders.
From what I have seen thus far, the X is an impressive machine. Forza 7, a flagship title for the X, runs at a beautiful native 4K and 60fps, but another thing impressed me was the rearview mirrors. On the other sys
With the movie coming up, and from what I have seen of it so far, it feels like an epic celebration of what the show has become, how far it has gone. A big reason of that is because of this fandom, supporting it to the point of putting it into history. A fandom I joined over 5 years ago.
I am feeling a bit emotional right now, but in a good way. If that makes sense. I am thinking a lot of these past 5 years. Time sure does fly by. I joined this fandom at a time when I was so depressed and l
BDobbinsFTW made an excellent early impressions video for Destiny 2 that I highly suggest watching. It has strong language, but I believe it is quite appropriate. He shows this game for what it is on the PvE side of things.
I feel like starting a new blog series, one where I discuss games that I personally find to be very overrated. I will start that now!
Telltale's The Walking Dead was released to extremely high critical acclaim back in 2012. It one several awards, including the prestigious Game of the Year award. Even I enjoyed it back then and I cried at the ending of season 1. Looking back, however, when I think of this entire series in retrospect, I feel a much different tone towards it. That being t
I am not good at social interactions. Never was. I thought I was getting better when I was in school over time, but it seems all of that has gone away and my ability to properly socialize has gotten worse in time. I also suffer from depression, but lot's of people know that already. With these things, I have a terrible social life offline and lately, online too. I am starting to feel like most people hate me for whatever reason. Could be people think I am too depressing or maybe I pissed some pe
Anyone that knows me knows that I have issues, for sure, Mental issues. Sometimes I get really depressed, other times I get super stressed out, and sometimes I get super pissed off. Being someone that is autistic and has a crippling anxiety disorder, this stuff isn't too much of a surprise. Regardless, I know that I do come off as abrasive sometimes, or perhaps even more than that and if I have ever come off as an asshole to anyone here, I apologize, deeply. I mean no ill will towards anyone, I
The main E3 conference for Xbox has ended. You know what? I thought it was good. Damn good. It started off with the now named Xbox One X, and it seems like a cool machine, might pick it up. It apparently is quite small for a system of its type and that is impressive. Then, what was most of the show? Games. Game after game after game, it was awesome. Seeing all of these new titles was a treat and many of them looked so interesting.
The Ori sequel trailer for example, was beautiful and emoti
*Disclaimer: While this blog is me stating why I think you should not buy this game, it is your money so feel free to do whatever. I can't stop you.
So Call of Duty WWII has been revealed to the public to apparent positive reception in initial impressions. The like to dislike ratio in the trailer is actually positive, which compared to last year's Infinite Warfare, that means something, I guess.
The thing is, I am not impressed. While the trailer to me was simply okay, nothin
Last night I was thinking while going on a walk. During the past several years, me and my few offline friends loved to play video games together or perhaps go places. Playing stuff like Minecraft, Dynasty Warriors, or even Mario Kart 64. Those are times that I cherish. I got to thinking about it all though, about how it all sorta vanished. How we just don't do those things anymore it seems. I am not sure why. Perhaps everyone is just busy with their own life, which I can understand. Perhaps ther
It seems no matter what I do or think about, eventually the day will give me some type of reminder to why I don't like myself at all. Makes me wish that either my existence never happened or that I wasn't me at all. Either one would have solved a lot of problems not just for me, but for everyone else that has the misfortune of stepping into my life. While I try to live within my means, I don't think it will mean shit when the years go by and I cannot do anything right. Goes right back to me wis
