Luigi’s Mansion 3: So Good, It’s Scary!

I just finished Luigi’s Mansion 3, and boy, what an amazing experience it was!  As much as I enjoyed the original game, this game completely blows that one out of the water.  If you liked the first game, then you don’t even need to read my review.  Just go out and buy it!  …But, if you’re so inclined to hear my thoughts, a spoiler-free review awaits you below….

Inktober 2019 Summary

Now that Inktober is over, I decided to create a summary picture for all 31 of the inked drawings I did.  This was my first Inktober, and admittedly, it was a rather exhausting affair.  I usually do just a drawing or two a month, and this time, I was drawing nearly every day starting September 1.  Needless to say, it made me…tired.  And I look forward to taking a short break from drawing for the time being.

Day 22: A Game Sequel Which Disappointed You

As I slowly inch my way forward through the 30 days’ worth of video game topics, I arrive upon a pretty easy one, a game sequel which disappointed me.  One game in particular springs to mind, but since it is such an obvious choice, I also wanted to briefly discuss one of the biggest crimes a sequel can commit.  For me, anyway.  We’ll see if you agree.

Inktober 2019 Highlights Week 2

Time to share with you all the highlights from my next batch of Inktober drawings!  You may have noticed that I am slowly getting better.  My crosshatching has improved, plus I learned that large, bold areas of ink have a way of making a picture “pop”, so you’ll be seeing a bit more of that now.  As usual, you can see every one of my Inktober pictures over on Deviant Art.

Inktober 2019 Highlights Week 1

Good day, dear readers!  I decided to do Inktober this year, which is a little drawing event where you get a topic for every day in October to draw and ink, either digitally or in the traditional way.  You can start the first day of September, which means I have been giving myself two days per picture.  And let me tell you, I am feeling extremely tired from drawing far more than I’m used to….

Spyro the Dragon: A Short Review

For the past decade or so, I have been trying to catch up on the major PS1 games that I had missed.  For about $10 per game on Amazon (with a few exceptions), I was able to play all of the old PS1 Final Fantasy games, including a few SNES ones that were remade and bundled with other games.  I caught up on the original Crash Bandicoot trilogy thanks to the N. Sane Trilogy.  And last of all, to complete my PS1 tour, I have begun the Spyro Reignited Trilogy.  I have played through the first game thus far, and below are my thoughts.  (If you’re interested, we’re also playing through the full trilogy on our Virtual Bastion Youtube channel.)

Want to See Your Super Mario Maker 2 Levels on YouTube?

Good day, everyone!  I recently got a copy of Super Mario Maker 2 and have been spending many hours playing through all kinds of cool and creative stages created by fellow Mario fans all across the globe.  Which got me thinking…it could be really cool to record your Mario Maker stages on our Virtual Bastion YouTube channel for the whole world to see!  If you’re interested, keep reading below for the details.

Day 21: Game with the Best Story

Once again, I am slowly working my way through 30 days’ worth of video game topics.  And once again, I am taking the task far too seriously.  The next topic on the list is the game with the best story, which is an exceedingly difficult question, if you ask me.  I mean, there are so many games I could pick, but which one is really the best?  To prevent my mind from imploding from the sheer possibilities, I have decided instead to discuss a game with a notable story, Undertale.  Spoilers ahead. Continue reading Day 21: Game with the Best Story

Memories of Friendship: The Friend with the Sega

Last, but not least, it’s time I talked about my memories of friend C from elementary school.  This friend also had a very big house (I had the smallest house out of my friends; this is also the same friend who made fun of the fact that I had a small, blow-up pool in my backyard).  This house had some land around it, but not as much as friend A, but her neighborhood was very scenic, with a pond and a forest nearby.

Memories of Friendship: The Friend with the Uncrustables

Last time, I was reminiscing about the generically named friend A from elementary school.  For today’s post, we are now moving on to friend B.  This friend also had a large house, but it was one of many identical houses in a neighborhood where none of the backyards had any fences.  Like friend A, we spent a good deal of our time playing in the very large, but also very unfinished basement.  Unlike friend A, I never ate at this friend’s house because her mom only offered those weird Uncrustable sandwiches.  You know about those, right?  Those little round sandwiches that are supposed to eliminate bread crust, but which, instead, are surrounded by weird, hard bread that is even more unappealing than the crust had been.
