Pokémon: A Tale of Long Lost Love and 16 Years of Missed Opportunities

Oh Pokémon. How I love you so much yet feel so betrayed from your brand. In this article I will strive for a few things. One, this is a love letter to one of the most influential and important franchises of my childhood. Second, this is a slew of complaints on what drove Pokémon down to the dumps for me.

Moonlighter: A Review of My First 5 Hours

On May 29th, the video game Moonlighter I have anticipated finally released. Below is my review of the game a few hours in!

Run-Down

The game is a rogue-lite top down 2D RPG with a very interesting twist. You play as a shopkeeper who owns the only store in town (in the beginning). You also hit up the local dungeons at night, sort of like the original Zelda or Binding of Isaac style, with randomly generated rooms stuffed with baddies and loot. You have a pendant that if you pay its fee lets you leave the dungeon. You then sell your loot in your shop during the day. Items fluctuate in value based on supply/demand and how often lately you’ve been selling the same paper and sticks. You get to fix the price on your goods and the customers will have 4 reactions based on how good they like the price.

I also decided to not include fruit I haven’t tried enough to give a fair appraisal.

Kudos to the gal friend for helping me with this list ❤

The Greatest YouTuber of All Time (as of 5/17/2018)

While one can analyze this perhaps by statistics such as total views and peak trending, you can also wager in a lot of subjectivity.
In this article I will give my pick for this title as well as give some reasons for why I find this channel to edge it above the rest.

Deck Borrowing is a Premium Feature in Card Games

Last month when the Witchwood expansion of Hearthstone dropped it quietly added a new mechanic called deck borrowing when playing with friends. Basically you can have friends play decks you made with your collection! It was a great way to get my friends back into the game since most of them don’t have the best collection themselves and offers great wacky game modes.

Basically with this new feature, I’m noticing just how elevated my experience is with a card game when deck borrowing is an option.
