Why I Play Roguelikes

“If you could choose any superpower to have, which one would you choose?” I have been asked this question multiple times over the course of my life. At first I wanted a cool superpower. I wanted something that was flashy and stood out. I wanted the classic flight, or superspeed or something that I couldContinue reading “Why I Play Roguelikes”

Rewriting Characters

You know something that has always bothered me to no end? It is sequels. More specifically, sequels that actively go out of there way to destroy their foundations. Personally, while it isn’t my hope that games do this, I am perfectly fine with the sequels not making any major changes to the original so longContinue reading “Rewriting Characters”

Inefficient Inventory and I

I am an ineffiecient individual. I can’t initiate a task unless I make it so its improbable that I don’t leave it incomplete. I don’t know if I invigorate myself by inviting impossible challenges, but I am the inverse of inefficent. Wait, I mean the inverse of the inverse. Well, now I am incompetent. Ideally,Continue reading “Inefficient Inventory and I”

Levels of Difficulty

I’ll be honest here. I didn’t really have a topic for today. I may have messed up my personal schedule and so I wasn’t sure what topic to go with this week. That’s not to say I had no ideas, I just wasn’t sure if I could develop them the way I wanted for theContinue reading “Levels of Difficulty”

Tainted Lost and a Few Moments of Pain

However,Continue reading “Tainted Lost and a Few Moments of Pain”

The first is because of how many shinies I have gotten in Pokémon Legends Arceus. That game gives out shinies likeContinue reading “Shiny Pokémon”

Mouthful Mode Mania

We have made it to the most memorable message of the month. To make things meaningful I will march on with the motif of many modern mainline Kirby games. Many Kirby games have their own memorable methods to mow down monsters while moving throughout the map. More recent methods were the Miracle Fruit and theContinue reading “Mouthful Mode Mania”

The Kirby Formulas

Yes, I know it is a confusing title. It will make sense later. So first, let’s do a little bit of a recap of what we have talked about thus far. Well, I’ve actually been doing most of the talking here. Anyway, I have mentioned two games in the Kirby franchise so far and asContinue reading “The Kirby Formulas”

Kirby 64 and the Bad End

Kirby and the Crystal Shards is one of those games that holds a special place in my heart. for one, it was my first game in the Kirby series. I first found this game in Project 64 along with many other titles for series I didn’t know about from Nintendo. Truth be told, it wasn’tContinue reading “Kirby 64 and the Bad End”

Thoughts on Kirby and the Amazing Mirror

Last year I thought about doing a Kirby month. I thought that the little pink puffball deserved some attention. However, there were two things that stopped me. One was because I thought there were too many months featuring Nintendo properties. The other reason was the announcement of a new Kirby game. I thought that itContinue reading “Thoughts on Kirby and the Amazing Mirror”
