Uncharted Drake’s Fortune: The First Step is Rarely the Best

Time for another unpopular video game opinion! Naughty Dog is a pretty well-respected game developer. Every single one of their games has enjoyed critical acclaim from just about everyone! Everyone, that is, except for me. Sure, I love Jak and Daxter! That was the first game I had ever played! But that's about it. I… Continue reading Uncharted Drake’s Fortune: The First Step is Rarely the Best

Character Analysis, The Mind of a Character

Tobio Kageyama: The King of the Court (The Mind of a Character)

Yes, I have been binging Haikyu!! in large, unhealthy doses. And now I'm all caught up. Which has left this great pit of emptiness inside me. So now I need to write this or I might lose my mind. Haikyu!! doesn't have a cast of exceptionally deep, interesting characters. They're all fun, likable, and sympathetic,… Continue reading Tobio Kageyama: The King of the Court (The Mind of a Character)

Books, How's This Book?, Review

Starsight: The Complexity of Space Wars

Don't worry. After this, I won't be talking about any Sanderson books for a few months. At least not until 'The Rhythm of War' comes out later this year. While I did have my criticisms, I ultimately did enjoy Skyward. It was an enjoyable bit of sci-fi with some strong characters and world-building. So, going… Continue reading Starsight: The Complexity of Space Wars

Devils Part 4: Osyluth, the Bone Devil (Best of the Bestiary)

Oh, joy! Time for nightmares! The Bone Devil is one of the only two Devils that I've personally used in a campaign so far. Granted, I had no idea what I was doing when I did. I threw him in there because he looked strong and scary, not because he worked on a narrative level.… Continue reading Devils Part 4: Osyluth, the Bone Devil (Best of the Bestiary)

Sonic the Hedgehog the Movie: The Best Video Game Movie Ever?

Spoiler alert: no. No, it isn't. It's a fun movie, sure! But is it truly good? Not really. The Sonic movie was simultaneously one of the most generic and bizarre cinematic experiences I've ever had. On one hand, you have an incredibly generic, by-the-numbers kids movie starring a CGI animal mascot, featuring some truly terrible… Continue reading Sonic the Hedgehog the Movie: The Best Video Game Movie Ever?

My Review Academia S4 E23: A Child’s Smile

Quick little thing before we start. I criticized the last episode over Deku's final exchange with Gentle in their fight. I complained that Deku told him he'd fought stronger, then immediately went back and told him that he was the toughest opponent he'd ever faced. Looking back, I realize that it isn't a question of… Continue reading My Review Academia S4 E23: A Child’s Smile
