A Little Zelda, A Lotta Farming: Takeaways from the Nintendo Direct!

Hey everyone! So, this week we were treated to a full-length, 40-minute Nintendo Direct where we saw reveals and updates for SO MANY GAMES.

Lessons from Gaming Burnout

Over the last few months, I've found myself playing video games way less than usual - basically, I've felt burned out by gaming and the relentless news cycle around it.

The last new … Continue reading Lessons from Gaming Burnout

Blog Update: We (Finally) Started A Video Game Podcast!

It's finally happened - after much deliberation and delay, some friends and I decided to begin a video game podcast! We have named it Friendly Fire; a name which has origins in the occasional friction of our supposedly-co-operative online multiplayer games together, for example on Zombie Army 4: Dead War and Nine Parchments! This is … Continue reading Blog Update: We (Finally) Started A Video Game Podcast!

My 5 Standout Games From E3 2021

So, another year of E3 has finished, and whilst some shows fell flat (Capcom, really, what was that?), there was plenty to be excited for - whether that was brand-new reveals, or new information on previously-announced games. As usual, our predictions were mostly way off the mark (a solid five out of eighteen correct, good … Continue reading My 5 Standout Games From E3 2021

Our Expected, Hopeful, and Plain Ridiculous E3 2021 Predictions

It's that wonderful time of year again - E3 is back, following the COVID-19-forced absence last year. I don't know about you, but I welcome its return, as laughing and cheering along with my friends at the hype-fueled reveals from various publishers each year is something I eagerly look forward to.

My 5 Favourite Video Game Characters

This week, we're stopping to take a breath from the Resident Evil reviews - they will continue soon, but I thought it'd be a good idea to break them up with a list post.

It's Saturday once again, and this week we've got another tag post! Following on from my first Sunshine Blogger Award tag a few weeks ago, the awesome MagiWasTaken (who has somehow been posting daily for 100 days straight!) has been kind enough to also tag me for it, so it is time for a second … Continue reading A New Dawn: Sunshine Blogger Award #2

Let’s Chat: Reactions to the Long-Awaited Nintendo Direct!

After a wait that felt like years (and was genuinely over 12 months!), Nintendo announced that on 17th February we would be getting a full Nintendo Direct; not a Partner Showcase or franchise-specific Direct, as filled the news gaps of 2020 amidst COVID-19 disruptions - no, a comprehensive, 50-minute Nintendo Direct! Hopefully this is just … Continue reading Let’s Chat: Reactions to the Long-Awaited Nintendo Direct!

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review

Oh hey there! Before we get into the review proper, just a quick note. This review is taken from my WCRReviews Blogger site, which I ran back nearly a decade ago. Now I have returned to more frequent writing, I thought it would be a good idea to unify that site with this one by … Continue reading The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review
