The Console I Could Never Put Down

   Whenever I think of Nintendo, I don’t often think of the NES, SNES, or even N64. My mind tends to go to the Gameboy Color, That lovely little plastic brick (or in my case see thru purple brick)  that was home to many amazing games. Dragon quest 3, a plethora of Pokemon games, and a…

Anime Impressions: “Black Clover” – NOPE’d outta there

Well this doesn’t happen often… but I actually quit watching this anime right after the first episode because I just couldn’t stand one of the characters. It’s really kind of a shame, because I found the premise of the series pretty interesting, at least judging by the first episode. The animation was fine as well….

Gaming Memories: Castle of Illusion (Game Gear)

Castle of Illusion was one of the first games I played on the Game Gear and also my first Jump’n’Run overall. Honestly, I was pretty lucky in that regard, considering this was also a license adaptation. That could have gone a lot worse (thanks mom and dad for picking this one). As an introduction to…

Gaming Memories: Operation: Inner Space

Tell me if you’ve heard this one before: A demon / evil force possesses your computer and now you have to enter it in a miniature plane / spaceship to re-capture your program icons and free your computer from the evil influence. Sounds like a plot that is right at home in the 90s, isn’t…

Gaming Memories: Castle of the Winds

In the time before Windows 95, when Windows 3.1 / 3.11 were around, there were pretty much 2 “classes” of games: DOS games that were as you knew them at the time, taking up the whole screen, the interface seamlessly integrating into it (of course dependent on the quality of the developer) etc.. And then…

Rainbow Moon (PS4) – First Impressions

Had this game lying around on the digital pile for a while now, finally decided to take a closer look and… well… I don’t think I’ll be playing this much after the first session. First, a quick description of the game: It’s a strategy-rpg with an isometric view. On the main map you go around exploring…

DC Titans 2018 – After 3 Episodes

If you are into DC Comics superheroes and the TV / movie adaptations related to them, you have probably seen the trailer for the new Titans series. To put it lightly, it did not exactly garner a positive reaction, unless mocking (”Fuck Batman”) counts. It made the series look like it’s gonna be very “grim-dark…

Intel and the 10nm Process… what a mess

In recent years I couldn’t help come to the conclusion that Intel has very much been resting on their laurels thanks to AMD not putting up much of a fight for a while now, pre-Zen. At least to me that would be the most obvious explanation why Intel has had so much trouble with getting…

WordPress Gutenberg – First Impression: Terrible!

So since WordPress 4.9.8 has a popup encouraging users to try out the new Gutenberg editor, I thought “what the heck” and did so. But as you can guess from the post title, it didn’t go well. How badly did it go, you ask? Well for starters I could not even create a simple post…

Gaming Memories – Dragon Crystal (Game Gear)

When asked what game introduced you to RPGs, often you’ll hear names like Final Fantasy, Phantasy Star, Baldur’s Gate, larger names like that. For me, it was a much smaller title: Dragon Crystal for the Sega Game Gear. While it wasn’t a full-blown rpg like the other titles, it had character levels, experience points, lots…
