Pokemon Master

When I was a ten year old – maybe even a five year old – I wanted to be a Pokémon master. I’m twenty-eight now, and, to be honest, I still want to be one. Pokémon has been around for 25 years, which is nothing short of incredible, and it’s still going strong. I noContinue reading “Pokemon Master”

Hall of Fame pt. 3

Okay, okay. It’s been a minute, I know. I’m a bit behind. The holiday season (which, if you work retail, is Sept-Jan) has been rough on me this year. But I am TRYING to get back on track with posting and I appreciate the patience! Though, my job has not been the only reason IContinue reading “Hall of Fame pt. 3”

Outside Looking In

I feel like every generation has some “fandoms” that, although they can transcend time and appeal to various age groups, are seen almost as a “staple.” But, of course, it’s impossible to involve yourself in all of them. So here are the ones I missed out on, as a millenial growing up in the nineties/2000’s!Continue reading “Outside Looking In”

Hall of Fame pt. 2

Much like my post last Monday, where I detailed my return to Pokemon Alpha Sapphire after a five year hiatus, I picked up Pokemon Moon this past week, determined to conquer it. I got to the Team Skull base in Po Town last time around, but never actually finished the game. This time, when IContinue reading “Hall of Fame pt. 2”

Reawakened

So, I’m going to be honest for a second. I’ve been in a bit of a slump when it comes to writing. It happens. It’s not an unusual phenomenon for writers and other creative folk. Except this time, none of my go-to methods for sparking inspiration have worked. I sit down to write and… nothingContinue reading “Reawakened”

Hearts, Hearts, My Kingdom for Some Hearts!

My gaming history is not as extensive as some, but, in addition to being a master at the original Spyro the Dragon trilogy (and the Reignited version,) three other prominent series feature in my repertoire. One is Final Fantasy – I have yet to play them all, but X, VIII, and Crisis Core are someContinue reading “Hearts, Hearts, My Kingdom for Some Hearts!”

The Adventure Begins…

Rumors have been swirling from here to the Dragon Realms about a possible original Spyro the Dragon trilogy remaster coming later this year, on the heels of the successful Crash Bandicoot remaster from 2017. Considering the three PS1 games about a feisty fire-breathing purple dragon are my favorite games OF ALL TIME, these whispers andContinue reading “The Adventure Begins…”

Pokemon World

When I was a child, we truly lived in a Pokemon world. Pokemon was EVERYWHERE. One of the greatest Christmas presents I’ve ever received is the Pikachu-themed Gameboy Color with Pokemon Yellow Version. With the recent release of Pokemon Sun and Moon, I’ve been reflecting on my history with Pokemon quite a bit, from winningContinue reading “Pokemon World”

A Dose of Nostalgia

When I was about 6 years old, my dad had racked up enough Holiday Inn points due to his job that he decided to cash them in for a Playstation, which my sister and I were thrilled about, and the first game he purchased for us was the original Spyro the Dragon. Though I was stillContinue reading “A Dose of Nostalgia”
