Here’s a little secret: I love the Mega Man series. The original Rockman, the X-series, this series that I’m reviewing right now. You name it – I most probably love it… Probably…
*side glance at X-7 and X-8*
When I heard that they’re remastering the Zero series for re-release, I had to buy it. And I did…on day one! I don’t do that often. But… is it as great as I remember?

A majority of us have had over two weeks to get settled into our new deserted island lives in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Honestly there’s no better time than now to for a game like this to be released, with almost everyone in lockdown or self-isolation thanks to COVID-19.
This is my first time playing an Animal Crossing title but I know of things and people off of second-hand information. I’ve honestly never been interested until now (though I would blame the lack of a Gamecube or NDS, really). Now I have my own Switch, I thought there wasn’t an excuse to not dive into this cult-favorite!

Let me start this by saying that I’ve never played any of the original Mystery Dungeon games that were on the Game Boy Advance/DS, but I do love the Pokémon series. Rescue Team DX is a remake and combination of the two original DS games, Rescue Team Red and Rescue Team Blue. Since I’ve not played them, I’m going into this with fresh eyes.
What I know about this series in general is that its a dungeon crawler where you are the Pokémon rather than the Trainer, and boy oh boy does that idea get me excited. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be a Pokémon?

Happy Pokémon Day!
I can’t believe its been 24 years since the original Red/Blue/Yellow series. Almost 900 different Pokémon across 8 regions, from Kanto to Galar …

Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl is another RPG developed by Level-5 (developers of the Layton series). Originally released in Japan in April of last year, Snack World is now available for the rest of the world to enjoy. Why “Gold”? Well, because this worldwide release features all the DLCs available from the Japanese version.
You play as a customisable character who has been hit with amnesia in almost all aspects of life except for your name, found unconscious at the psuedo-olden gates of Tutti-Frutti. “They must be an adventurer!” the quirky inhabitants of the castle exclaim. And thus, that is what you will become.

I could have gotten it long, long ago. I told myself that if I ever got Minecraft that I’d want it in cartridge form for the Switch. More so to make absolute sure that I wanted it.
I know, I’m strange that way. But is a really good way to save money!
So since you’re reading this right now…I guess I did buy it?

I’m considering this a #LateToTheParty post because most people would have finished playing their copy of Pokémon Sword or Shield while here I am…just about finished because I only got my copy of Sword for Christmas.
What’s more perfect than immediately jumping into the Galar region when I’m in the area that inspired it’s creation?

With Christmas literally a week away, I thought a fun little Christmas-y post was in order!
Some people may have only gamer friends, some may have that one gamer friend that’s cool with everyone else who isn’t one (I’m normally in the latter). I’m sure a lot of you have had many-an awkward Christmas where you are gifted with some absolutely random gaming-related thing or have sat through the same Christmas movie about a gazillion times and really they want to have a more “active” time spent with everyone they love. Where is the middle-ground?!

As you well know, I’m running this blog on my own which is why I’ve decided not to post news-related things here – it’s too much! At the same time, I’m also a freelance photographer and as of writing this piece I’ve got another year to go before I become a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, which I’ve been doing for the last few years as a distance learner.
I feel like as time goes on, it becomes a lot more difficult to do the things that I love to do and I really wish I didn’t have to write this. But shutting my thoughts away doesn’t make it any less true.
