I Learned Something Today: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

I don’t travel much. It’s not that I’m afraid to get out on the open water, it’s more like I don’t necessarily have the skills for travel. I tend to be a homebody but I’d love to go to distant lands. I’m a walking dichotomy. I know I need to get out in the world and… Continue reading

Characters That Games Forgot: Maria Renard of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Castlevania games usually put you in control of the most interesting character. You want to know what happens to Simon, Richter, Alucard, and sometimes Grant DaNasty.

Sometimes the amount of games you own becomes too daunting to overcome. Other times you just get burned out. Taking… Continue reading

Hey! Watch! Mario and Dali Brothers in Surreality?

Whenever I think of Salvador Dali, I immediately think of Super Mario Bros. and vice versa. That is probably the most untrue sentence I have written on this website. However, after watching this video from the PBS web hub, The Idea Channel, connecting those two mustachioed gentlemen isn’t that far off base. I remember having… Continue reading

I Learned Something Today: Duck Hunt

I love animals. I love having them as pets and I love to eat some of them as well. One thing I don’t love is killing animals for sport. Well, I don’t actually know if I love it or not because I’ve never been hunting. But I do know that I will never give hunting… Continue reading
