Persona 5, the video game, was and is my first real dive into the Persona series – or anything from the Shin Megami Tensei series in general, if I’m honest. With bias, the game is faultless. Spotless. A rare s […]
Usually, when I write these articles, I try to think back to something I did last week or the past weekend; something nerdy I feel like touching on or talking about. That also gives the article some sort of […]
Growing up in “nerd” culture as I did, I was absorbed in video games, the Lord of the Rings, and the like. Not so much 80s culture, however. Not as much as Ready Player One, the book, would have liked.
But I rea […]
The first Ni No Kuni was a wonderful little game. If asked, I’d say it was a role-playing game that borrowed elements from the greats, the likes of Final Fantasy and Pokemon. Actually, it’s the Pokemon element tha […]
Kami-Con was last weekend, and I’m gonna talk about it! Also note that it’s Wednesday, and I still don’t have my voice back.
So, Kami-Con was founded back in 2009. It began as a small convention in Tusca […]
Did you grow up in the 90s?
Did you play Spyro the Dragon or Banjo-Kazooie?
How about Super Mario 64?
Well, did ya?
So did I!
And, ya know what?
I really, really miss those days.

Should the […]

Okami, a product of Bayonetta’s director, Hideki Kamiya, is a wonderful love letter to all things Japanese. As an outsider looking in, I’ve always been attracted to the art style and history of Japan. That’s why I […]
With the release of what I’m going to call Five Nights at Freddy’s 6, I wanted to talk about why the series as a whole still matters to me.
Five Nights at Freddy’s started a domino effect in my life. First, I was […]
Justice League was an enjoyable movie. There, I said it. Before you get your pitchforks, let me explain.
I did not read the reviews, I didn’t check the score on rotten tomatoes, and I didn’t ask my Marvel obs […]
If you grew up like I did, as a child of the 90’s who loved anime, you probably had at least a passing interest in .hack//Sign, an anime that was (and you’ll see a theme here) way before its time. If you have any […]
Before I get in depth in regards to the actual selection of components, let me begin by quickly answering the why.
Why build your own PC?
Well, I personally built my system because I’m a gamer. I see the c […]
I spent this past weekend doing something I have a serious love/hate relationship with: managing my “gaming station.” I have what I would call a “franken’puter,” meaning it is a mess of parts from all over the […]
Aren’t conventions fun? Don’t you just enjoy being around people with similar interests? Spending money on things you know you shouldn’t at the dealer’s hall? Well, too bad!
If you’ve had a rough go of it financ […]
In November of 2016, my social media accounts were flooded with memes from Yuri!!! on Ice. I was far from interested. I assumed that it was going to be another sports anime full of fanservice and some irksome […]
