Nerd Crossover: The Wizarding World of Splatoon

Since Nintendo has crossed realities between Inkopolis and TMNT, let’s invite a little magic in. If inklings faced the Sorting Hat, what would their house culture look like? Ravenclaw – My house first! Since we’re smart, resourceful and creative, Ravenclaw inklings would be versatile players. Intuition would drive their ability to read other players’ stylesContinue reading “Nerd Crossover: The Wizarding World of Splatoon”

Looking for LA Recommendations!

I’m heading to E3 in a few weeks, guys! Having never been to LA, Glux set up a map of things we should check out while we’re there, but we need help! I hatehatehate being a tourist, so I’d love to hear about the coolest local spots to check out. Here’s where we’ve landed collaborativelyContinue reading “Looking for LA Recommendations!”

South Park: The Fractured But Whole

Admittedly, I’m not the most loyal South Park fan. But we’re in a bit of a doldrums for Switch releases until July, so I picked up South Park: The Fractured But Whole with some birthday money. I had no expectations going in. I might have been a little afraid I wouldn’t like it because IContinue reading “South Park: The Fractured But Whole”

Splat Fashion 3.0.0

With the release of 3.0.0 last week came over 100 new pieces of gear. I’ve always been a fan of throwing on a bit of military flare so mixing the new gear with some of my favorite pieces and weapons has me losing hours creating new looks and planning my ability builds. This is myContinue reading “Splat Fashion 3.0.0”

Binding of Isaac Tarot Interview

I’ve always viewed this deck more as a novelty – a collectible from one of my favorite video games ever, The Binding of Isaac. I’ve never used it before. This is a completely virgin deck! Until now. The cards depart from the traditional suit structure, instead calling on items from the game to represent suits.Continue reading “Binding of Isaac Tarot Interview”

Let Sleeping Tamagotchi Lie

Summer of ’97 squealed open like the garage door storefronts on the hundreds of kitschy shops on the Wildwood Boardwalk, ushering in the era of the Tamagotchi and its many knockoffs (my favorite was Dinkie Dino). They were our pre-smartphone digital addiction. I spent hours keeping mine alive and subsequently mourning its angelic avatar whenContinue reading “Let Sleeping Tamagotchi Lie”

Octo Expansion Anticipation

Nintendo’s recent announcement of the Octo Expansion has me hyperventilating at the thought of it. Lately I’ve been replaying Splatoon 2’s story mode as Agent 4 to collect all the scrolls and sardinium as well as unlock some of the Hero weapons. I’d forgotten the fun of single player mode and it’s only adding toContinue reading “Octo Expansion Anticipation”

Splatoon 2 Updates: March Splatfest Recap

Splatfest Results: Team Chicken 🥇 vs Team Egg 🚫 Another Splatfest, another loss for my team. In the nine Splatfests that have occurred since the game came out in July, I have won exactly ONE event. However, this month’s was one of the most fun/least frustrating I’ve played. I chose Team Egg because 1) science,Continue reading “Splatoon 2 Updates: March Splatfest Recap”

Bayonetta 2

It took me about 8 hours to finish Bayonetta 2 on Saturday. I wanted it to take longer. Plot-wise, It actually should have been shorter. Bayonetta herself seemed much softer in this game. Still a badass, but more emotionally tied to other characters than she even was to child Cereza in the first game. HerContinue reading “Bayonetta 2”

Thoughts on Bayonetta

After a very intense Splatfest that resulted in a heartbreaking loss for Team Money💸👼🏻, I was ready to dive into something new. On Friday, Nintendo released Bayonetta 2 for Switch. The physical copy comes with a code for the first Bayonetta game so I figured this was a good time to give the series aContinue reading “Thoughts on Bayonetta”
