Opinion Piece: Meta vs. Casual Play and PVP

This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately between things like competitive Pokemon, Fire Emblem Heroes Stat/IV Calculators, and a lot of debate on things as simple as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. I’ve always been a bit odd in the sense that I am constantly kind of at both sides of a place. […]

On the Nintendo Switch

As per usual with these, I will mostly be talking about things that caught my own attention and my opinions on that versus reporting everything :) If you haven’t watched the presentation yet, I highly recommend doing so. I already made sure to preorder the Nintendo Switch myself (though, I am still hoping the colored […]

The Problem with Achievements in Gaming

As a completionist, most people assume I generally do not have a problem with how achievements tend to work in gaming, but that’s not entirely true. I think when it comes down to it, I had a lot more fun when games were “simpler” and didn’t feature all these excessive requirements to get certain things. […]

Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 2 (and a bit of Pack 1) Thoughts

To start, I will say I like this DLC more than the first set. The first set wasn’t bad at all, but I just didn’t enjoy it as much. Wario’s Gold Mine being remade is nice and I think Dragon Driftway is really cool, but the only course I really loved was Hyrule Circuit. I […]

Mario Kart 8 and Tomodachi Life Ramblings

So, Mario Kart 8 came out in North America today! I’ve been enjoying the courses a lot, though, my index finger hurts from how much drifting is required (how much I suck at said drifting doesn’t help). I won’t talk too much about issues though as I do plan to write a review sometime soon […]

Mario Kart 8! Revisited!

So, I will admit I wasn’t too hyped up about Mario Kart 8. I had been disappointed with 7 and hadn’t truly enjoyed a Mario Kart in a while (My favorite things with Mario Kart for the Wii were the special downloaded course tournaments each week–I do hope those make a comeback in this game), […]

Mario Kart 8!

Recently, a new Mario Kart 8 trailer came out which shows some of the new courses and items. The items seem interesting enough, but I am mostly really excited about the courses. I love seeing the remakes (MOO MOO FARM–I have the theme for that course on my playlist) and it’s actually gotten me a […]
