    Did Kansas City make the right move?

    Did Kansas City make the right move?

    Now don’t take this the wrong way, I think that Patrick Mahomes is one of the best quarterbacks in the game today. He has shown that time and again, hell he didn’t even let being down 24-0 in the Wildcard round of the playoffs stop him. I’m talking about this from a logistical standpoint for the Kansas City Chiefs. Mahomes 10 year extension for $503 million with $447 million guaranteed. While those numbers are insane, why does Mahomes deserve that much of the money? First let’s look at Mahomes stats over the past two years that he has played.

    10 Characters that I want in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    10 Characters that I want in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    With the release of the next fighter for Super Smash Brothers Ultimate creeping ever closer, fans wonder who else could be joining the cast of 76 characters. Over the years, the Smash Bros games have gone from being a series where you pit your favorite Nintendo characters against each other to being a celebration of gaming as a whole when characters like Sonic and Snake made their debuts in Brawl. Fast forward a handful of years and we have a plethora of third party fighters like Mega Man, Pac Man, Ryu, Cloud and more. After Joker, Hero, Banjo and Kazooie, Terry Bogart and Byleth were added thanks to the first Fighter Pas, it was announced that there would be a second Fighter Pass with six more fighters joining the roster. It has already been revealed that the first of these six characters would be a character from one of Nintendo’s newest IPs: ARMS. That character is set to be revealed on June 22, but there are still five other spots up for grabs. With so many possibilities for those spots, it was rather tough to narrow this list down to just 10, so I needed to set some ground rules first.

    Thoughts on the Playstation 5 reveal event

    Thoughts on the Playstation 5 reveal event

    The Playstation 5 Reveal Event just ended, and I’m not entirely sure how to feel about it. Some of the games that they showed were interesting, they had a ton of games with interesting artistic design, but there was also a lot that was missing from the event. I personally had a lot of things that I liked and didn’t like from the event, so let's get right into it and start with the good from the event.

    How to help save Nascar

    How to help save Nascar

    Slowly but surely, the world is trying to restart. We are seeing stores welcome back customers and restaurants reopening. The same can be said for the world of sports as countless organizations try to resume their seasons, while others try to get their own underway. We’ve seen a few get things started, like the Korean Baseball Organization and both German soccer league Bundesliga and Portuguese soccer league Primeira Liga restarting this weekend and June 4 respectively. But for America, the first sport restarting is one that most wouldn’t expect. Nascar drivers return to tracks this Sunday to resume their season with a handful of races over the next few weeks. The sport itself has been in a decline for quite some time and is in dire need of a change. There are several different things that can help the sport turn things around. Some are up to the drivers while others are up to the officials of the sport to change.

    How to make Animal Crossing New Horizons even better

    How to make Animal Crossing New Horizons even better

    I’ve already poured a lot of hours into Animal Crossing New Horizons already. I’ve been catching fish and bugs, digging up fossils, donating to the museum, talking to villagers, and trying to play the stalk market correctly even though my stalks are tanking right now. While the game has its flaws, it is still very enjoyable and a fun to play game. Players can even come up with their own challenges like trying to collect all the fruit or build a stockpile of wood and iron so when your tools break you can easily make new ones. But there are still things that I would love to see be added to the game. With updates happening to the game quite regularly, there is plenty that can and might still be added to the game.

    Why classes are so important in Fire Emblem Three Houses

    Why classes are so important in Fire Emblem Three Houses

    At the end of 2019, many different outlets awarded Fire Emblem: Three Houses their game of the year award, and it was rightfully earned. An interesting plot, a major swerve halfway through the game, and some intense battles are just a few of the highlights in the game. When I first fired up the game, I didn’t really know what to expect but the rave reviews that the game had gotten had me interested in it. I had always liked the Fire Emblem series, but I didn’t know that I would get as obsessed with it as I have been with Three Houses.
