Serious-ous Talk – Pokemon

If you were a kid growing up, chances are you owned a Game Boy or a Nintendo DS. Walking around the schoolyard, people would be trading cards, that they would forget about, but suddenly have a burning passion for them when they are in their 20s-30s. Waking up early Saturday mornings to watch the cartoon/animeContinue reading “Serious-ous Talk – Pokemon”

Console Talk – Nintendo 64

Such a franchise, that has the ability to spawn various genres from racing to party games, even adventures staring side characters, deserves some discussion. First and foremost, theContinue reading “Series-ous Talk – Mario”

Great Games – The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I remember the Christmas of 2018 was definitely one of the most memorable as the last present that I opened, by the instruction of my parents, was a Nintendo Switch. It was love after first sight.
