I am a forgetful person in general. Not good with names or faces. But I do remember actions - and kindnesses. Especially when they come from strangers. My best friend and I, wannabe Pokemon masters to this day, bought Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver at their time of release. A wise decision, considering how much the … Continue reading The Nice GameStop Lady

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 no … Continue 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 I … Continue reading Hall of Fame pt. 3
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 I … Continue reading Hall of Fame pt. 2
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... nothing … Continue 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 some … Continue 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 and … Continue reading The Adventure Begins…
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 winning … Continue 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 still … Continue reading A Dose of Nostalgia
