#FitTober: I challenged myself to Fitness Boxing

I’ve got something super different for you today!

I read somewhere that Japanese people lost an average of 2.9kg to 4.8kg in a month by playing Fitness Boxing. Thanks to that ‘fact’ going viral, it has become tough to find a physical copy of the ‘exergame’ in Japan. So, I thought it would be an interesting challenge to put myself through since I’ve been meaning to get myself back into exercising but haven’t found the money to be able to afford a monthly gym membership.

And here I am, digital copy on hand… And here’s my daily diary of that journey.

The Complete Noob’s Incomplete Guide to Smash Bros.

I have to admit: I’ve never played Smash Bros until I got Smash Ultimate the moment I got my Switch. I like to call myself a “fighter” (read: gamer who likes to kick butt in-game via fighting games) and Nintendo-lover but I’ve never once laid my hands on the ever-popular brawler.

A lot of gamers tend to shy away from the unfamiliar, or when they do they blame it on the game and refuse to admit that they may just be a noob at that one game. Smash is a whole new ballgame for me but I’m not afraid to say it: ich bin ein Noob!

The changing landscape of Youtube & Gaming

Here’s a random little piece, but I have been thinking about this a lot lately and what better way to express one’s thoughts than to put them down into words?

YouTube Gaming was a really big thing not too long ago – such that almost everyone wanted to bank-in on it one way or another. But now things have changed, and I really can’t say it has been for the better.

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince brought back some good memories

The Trine series of games has been quite dear to me since my boyfriend introduced the sequel to me a few years ago. Its not very often that you get a puzzle role-playing game where you have to use the different abilities of such an eccentric bunch of characters and its not often that you get to share that experience with someone else. And now, Frozenbyte has brought back Zoya the Thief, Pontius the Knight and Amadeus the Wizard for a new 2.5D adventure in The Nightmare Prince.

How I Lost Faith In Pokémon GO

I love playing Pokémon GO. At least, I used to until I started to feel like it was unfair… I wasn’t rewarded for my continued support of the game and the longer I played, the more it became apparent. The more apparent it became, the more I got bored and the more I lost faith.

Over a year and a half ago, while I was working at my previous job, I wrote a piece about why I love playing the game. Oh, how times have changed…

Untitled Goose Game Review: HONK HONK beetch

I’ve been looking forward to this game forever, as I’m sure everyone else in the gaming community has. Last week, Melbourne-based House House has finally launched Untitled Goose Game on the same day as Link’s Awakening and this little indie company has topped the charts.

But what’s so great about a game about a goose? Well, let’s find out!

Daemon X Machina Review: Pew pew pew, rinse & repeat.

Its been about two years since Daemon X Machina was announced at Nintendo’s E3 Direct and its finally launched on the Switch. From the trailers it looked like an amazing mech game with lots of potential. But reviews out thus far have been mixed, according to their headlines. I tried to avoid them before embarking on the journey myself, with slight failure.

So, game in hand, let’s see if it does well.

Spyro Reignited (Switch): Nostalgia on the go

Like most 90s-born gamers, Spyro was one of the first ever video games I’ve ever played in my life and when a remaster was announced I couldn’t wait to get it…Until it was only released for the PS4 and Xbox One (which we’ve reviewed). And then I had no choice but to wait.

Now its finally out and what do I do? Why, I take my Switch out to the park of course!

Astral Chain Review: Nothing is what it seems

Boy, Nintendo sure have been banging out titles like there’s no tomorrow. Not too long ago we had Fire Emblem and here now we have Astral Chain. This Switch-exclusive kept me from sleeping on a 12-hour flight and some subsequent nights after, I was hooked as soon as I had my hands on this game.

Fire Emblem was a hit, and I predict that this might be too.

#LateToTheParty: So I finally have a Nintendo Switch…

You read that right: I finally have the Nintendo Switch. The hybrid console has been out for about 2 years now and I only now have one… Stop judging me!

I’m currently a bit over 9 weeks in as a fresh Switch-owner and I have many thoughts.
