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.

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.

Memories of Friendship: The Friend with the Pool

Many years back, when the Duck was in elementary school, I had three friends.  Though we got into plenty of arguments, I have many fond memories of our time together and decided to reminisce.  To protect their identities on this here Internet, they shall be referred to as friends A-C.  Since I don’t want this post to go too long, however, I’m going to break it into three.  Here we go… Continue reading Memories of Friendship: The Friend with the Pool

Drawing Rouge 10 Years Later

A few weeks ago, I drew a revised version of my OC, Gretchen the dragon lady, which I originally doodled way back in 2009.  Recently, I recreated another character that I first drew in 2009, Rouge the Bat from the Sonic the Hedgehog series.  (I was in the mood to draw her thanks to my ongoing playthrough of Sonic Adventure 2 over on Virtual Bastion’s Youtube channel….)

Playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf with Mother Duck

Ever since its origin on the GameCube, Animal Crossing has always been one of those few games that both Mother Duck and I enjoy playing.  While she prefers more peaceful games like Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon, it is rare for me to play a game that doesn’t involve some grand adventure, platforming, RPG, or otherwise.  Nevertheless, Animal Crossing just has a certain level of charm that even I can’t resist. Continue reading Playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf with Mother Duck

Ni no Kuni II: A Review

Christmas is always the best time for catching up on all the games I missed, and one such game that I was able to obtain thanks to Christmas of 2018 was Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom.  Though I was a big fan of the first game on the PS3, I’ll admit I was rather doubtful as to how the newest entry in the series would turn out.  As far as I could tell, none of the first game’s original cast of characters was returning, leading me to believe from the start that this game would be a bit…different. Continue reading Ni no Kuni II: A Review

Knights of the Round is Overpowered (and I’m Glad)

In the near past, I had been working through my second playthrough of the amazing Final Fantasy VII, a PS1 classic that surely needs no introduction.  While I adore this game and am happy to say it is one of the few games I went into with high expectations, and was not disappointed, I gotta say I hate the final boss.  The first part, Jenova-Synthesis, is fine.  Bizarro Sephiroth is really…bizarre, but not that bad once I started fighting this monstrosity properly.  But the weirdly-named Safer Sephiroth (what makes him so safe?) is pure agony because of the super boring, super long, Supernova attack. Continue reading Knights of the Round is Overpowered (and I’m Glad)

Fun with FF7’s Chocobo Breeding

When I play video games, I usually enjoy focusing on the main game first and foremost.  Anything outside that, more often than not, feels like a waste of my time.  And yet, when I give said diversions a chance, they often turn out to be much more fun than I would have expected.  A recent example was Final Fantasy VIII’s Triple Triad, a deceptively simple card game that ended up being way more addicting than I ever could have imagined.  The newest story I have to tell pertains to the Chocobo breeding in Final Fantasy VII. Continue reading Fun with FF7’s Chocobo Breeding

New Eiffel Tower T-Shirt Design!

G’day, folks!  Just thought I’d share with you all a new t-shirt design I added over on my Spreadshirt Marketplace.  I actually haven’t added any designs in over a year or so, but I finally had some inspiration.  And it all started with a little piece of fan art I did… Continue reading New Eiffel Tower T-Shirt Design!
