Band of Bloggers: Waiting for the Chair

Band of Bloggers: Mario Vs the Trolls

When I saw the theme for this month's Band of Bloggers, Release The Trolls, I immediately thought of Soulsborne games and how often the player can die due to a trap or ambush. Those games always have a feeling like anything can kill yo...

 
 
 

Band of Bloggers: Hand it to the Master

Band of Bloggers: A Brother's Gift

SquareEnix used to occationally pair their lesser known titles with a demo for the latest Final Fantasy title in order to bolster sales. I could only find two times that they did this, but there might have been more. In order to boost ...

 
 
 

Band of Bloggers: Seiken Densetsu What Now?

Some of my earliest gaming memories stem from the Super Nintendo, though I never actually had one until the SNES Classic. I had friends who had the SNES though, and I still remember going to their homes to play Super Mario World. My br...

Band of Bloggers: Cheating in a Life Sim

Get off my Backlog: Ocarina of Time

For as long as I can remember playing games, I've been a Legend of Zelda fan. I have so many fond memories of nearly all the games in the series. While I considered myself a fan, there was a pretty big problem with my fan status: I had...

Band of Bloggers: Team Battle

Band of Bloggers: Kirby Kirby Kirby

The theme for this months Band of Bloggers was short and sweet, and so I played a little game called Kirby: Triple Deluxe. Kirby games are usually pretty short affairs, and Kirby himself is a sweet little guy who may or may not be an e...
