And The Universe Said I Love You
“And the universe said I love you.” Seven words that will never fail to prickle tears in my eyes, the overwhelming sense of truth and serenity in that statement will never not shake me to my core. In a good way.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater Memories
With the announcement that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 are going to be remade, I got hit with a tidal wave of nostalgia. Upon hearing the news and browsing the world of Twitter, it appeared that I wasn’t the only one.
The Infinite Escape
The irony here is that one of the things I love doing most to erase stress and re-balance myself is writing...and here I am writing about it! However, it's not just any writing that I use to accomplish this; it's writing adventures for my table-top pen and paper gaming group that I've found is one of the most effective ways to eliminate stress. I have been playing Dungeons & Dragons and other similar tabletop games for as long as I can remember. Unfortunately, I am using the term playing loosely, as I have almost always been the one running the game. This means I can send the players on adventures using pre-made adventure modules... or, I can create my own custom adventures tailored to my exact liking. I often choose the latter.

"I'm Not an E-Girl" And Other Lies I've Told While Playing League of Legends
#1 - "My name is Mike." Guys, I don't think you understand: I am totally blowing my cover, here. When I first started playing League of Legends, I chose the name "sleepymk." I would play duo games with my boyfriend which would often go (relatively) seamlessly. (I'm a Nami OTP and I will heal you for days, let me tell you.)
Assassin's Creed: Valhalla — Exploring the 10 main locations in England
If you've played the latest version of the Assassin's Creed anthology, you will have probably enjoyed exploring familiar towns and cities throughout England as our favourite drengr, Eivor. But have you wondered about the names of these places and how much influence the Vikings, Romans and Anglo-Saxons actually had through invading and settling in Britannia?
- Created with: Humble Bundle
One Month Later, And Here’s Why I’m Even More Obsessed with Humble Bundle’s Choice Model!
Through that process, I found a community in gaming that helped me give back to charities important to me. That company is Humble Bundle! In case you aren't yet familiar with Humble Bundle, they are a company that sells video games, ebooks, software, and other digital content with a significant focus on supporting various charities in the process. Their goal is to make gaming affordable to everyone and support a good cause while doing so! Both of those things are very important to me. Last month, I got to try out Humble Bundle's "Pay What You Want" feature.
ADOM (Ancient Domains of Mystery): How 15,000 Lines of Code Changed RPGs
Life hasn't been the most exciting lately. I love to travel, so naturally, the shutdown that brought 2020 to a halt has forced me to take up, well, less-preferred means of adventuring. One such method is to explore the open worlds of video games that were ideated before I was born.
Yes, at 44, I Play Minecraft
Almost a decade ago, my daughters roped me into playing Minecraft with them on the Xbox 360. Because I'm one of those parents who is easily talked into playing games and what-not, it didn't take much convincing.
How Nintendo Saved My Life
Growing up as a child, I was always fascinated with Nintendo, specifically the Legend of Zelda franchise. I've always loved the storyline behind video game plots. In my childlike mind, I used to compare it to a high-quality movie that you could control. I started gaming out young, sitting beside my mother as she would play different games on our good ole trustworthy GameCube such as Harvest Moon, Final Fantasy, and The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. I loved watching my mom play her video games in the late quiet of the night.
'Loop Hero' is the Perfect Game for a Post-Covid World
While the title of this sophomore release from indie studio Four Quarters is appropriate, albeit bromide, I find it unfortunate that "Oblivion" is already a shopworn gaming trademark, because that is the word that keeps coming to mind as I loop my way closer and closer to 100 hours of game time.
Animal Crossing & Depression
Ever since I was a child, I have been obsessed with video games. It didn’t matter what the genre was; I played a little bit of everything. RPGs, Racing games, horror survival, 2D platforms, you name it, I was dabbling with it at one point or another. The first video game console my siblings and I were introduced to was the NES or Nintendo Entertainment System released on July 15th, 1983. My eldest brother actually had an Atari 2600 before coming into money to buy his first gaming system, which was the NES. By the time he purchased a Turbo Graffix 16, he had donated the previous console to us in the middle 90s.
