Time to pull my head out of Stardew Valley and make good on the potential of my new laptop. Let's talk about Realm of the Mad God. RotMG is a browser-based MMORPG of sorts developed by the independent Wild Shadow Studios and bought by Deca Games in 2016. It has the multiple servers, raid battles and … Continue reading Roaming the Mad God’s Realm

Putting the “Pro” in “gamer”
With Finals and graduation and all of that terrible real life stuff on the horizon, I'm staving off imminent insanity in the only way I know how: Video games. Specifically, finally trying out that brand new Nintendo Switch Pro Controller I got for my birthday. Two months ago. To be fair, I mostly haven't used it up … Continue reading Putting the “Pro” in “gamer”
My top 10 games of 2018
I always feel like it's cliché for me to throw one of these lists together since it's something EVERYONE does. But the more I think of it as a window into what I love, the less bad I feel about it. After all, looking at my 2017 list pretty much just reminded me that I … Continue reading My top 10 games of 2018
Summer’s end, looking ahead
As we begin the last week of summer vacation, I can feel that vaguely existential dread of having to go back to school start to creep up my back. Of course there are pluses to school starting. Like having a regular schedule. And being a bit more challenged by novel material every day. But for … Continue reading Summer’s end, looking ahead
This feels gross… But Disney makes it right.
It's no surprise that I've become a bigger fan of mobile phone games in recent years. I've been a hardcore GameBoy/DS fanatic throughout my childhood. Yet, despite certain phone games of widespread popular fervor like Angry Birds or Pocket God making their way into my gaming lexicon, overall the app market never truly broke into … Continue reading This feels gross… But Disney makes it right.
What’s in a name?
While I can think of very few distractions better suited to the title than a video game where I'm able to kill a gun-themed dragon with bees, Enter the Gungeon cannot keep me from doing some work I need to do forever. Mostly because the Switch battery doesn't last forever. Otherwise it most definitely could … Continue reading What’s in a name?
The Mad Ramblings of a Man in the Heat
If yesterday was a day of relative progress and hard work, through going to the gym, updating my social media accounts and turning in a Spotlight article for Gladeo, today is... Well, the opposite. Because it is way too hot out for anyone to seriously be motivated about doing anything. The reason my Featured Image … Continue reading The Mad Ramblings of a Man in the Heat
Just another Quiet Day in the Neighborhood
Yesterday I was late on delivery with my blog post because I was busy all afternoon with my friends. Today, while I'm not on the cusp of midnight like before, I'm also a little later than I want to be. But not because I was completely distracted. More because I found it a little hard … Continue reading Just another Quiet Day in the Neighborhood
Go drunk Twitter, you’re home
I decided to go through with my idea from the other day and create a poll on Twitter to determine which game I should buy on my Switch, as I've had an interest in both Hollow Knight and Enter the Gungeon for some time now. It only seemed fair to go to the Internet to … Continue reading Go drunk Twitter, you’re home
Quick Time Events suck
I know it's a cliché to argue exactly what I'm saying in the title here, but don't worry. I'm not actually planning on going on a long tirade against QTEs in video games. This is just another case of 'I spent all day hanging out with my friends and didn't take the chance to write … Continue reading Quick Time Events suck
