Fire Emblem Reviewathon: Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword (2003, GBA)

Fire Emblem Blazing Sword was the seventh entry in Nintendo’s turn based, strategy, rpg series. This was the first game in the series to be localized for an English audience. Most gamers in the west were introduced to Marth and Roy via Super Smash Bros Melee for the Nintendo Gamecube. Fire Emblem 7 was the second Fire Emblem game for the Game Boy Advance and the first of the two we would get in the west. Fire Emblem Binding Blade( FE6) was considered to be not worth localizing. As someone who is playing it right now in preparation for the … Continue reading Fire Emblem Reviewathon: Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword (2003, GBA)

Favorite Ace Attorney characters complete

Ace attorney is one of my favorite game series of all time. I enjoy the characters and story most of all and while it is more of a visual novel than a traditional video game, these games have truly changed my life and are a comfort to me in times I am down. Part of my college thesis was introducing ways to incorporate fictional characters into therapy by using the strengths and weakness of the client and the fictional person they admire to encourage growth. These are my favorite characters in the Ace attorney series and its four spin off … Continue reading Favorite Ace Attorney characters complete

Favorite Ace Attorney cases 5-1

5. 6-5 The finale for the most recent game, Spirit of Justice, was the last Ace Attorney game to make me tear up. It is really ironic that Apollo Justice got more character development in games where his name wasn’t in the title but that is how it is. Not only does the final case have you literally facing the Queen in court, but it is also the eve of an actual revolution. The central theme of passing the torch and Apollo’s coming of age is truly memorable and I couldn’t feel better for the guy. I was always not … Continue reading Favorite Ace Attorney cases 5-1

Favorite Ace Attorney cases 10-5

The Ace Attorney/ Gyakuten Saiban series is one of my favorite game/ visual novel series of all time. It is funny, endearing, full of pop culture references, and strong character work.

However, not all cases are created equal and today I will start a top 10 Ace Attorney cases list. I will including only cases from the main series (PWAA, PWJFA, PWTT, AJAA, PWDD, PWSOJ) Key for abbreviations: Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney(PWAA) Cases from … Continue reading Favorite Ace Attorney cases 10-5

Dad of War: a splendid journey

Boy did I never figure I’d be coming back to God of War and  thinking that the newest title was the best one.

Kratos, after killing the Gods of Olympus has tried to settle down and move past his previous sins and now must journey with his estranged son, Atreus to scatter his late wife’s ashes on the highest peak.

Kingdom Hearts Retrospective: Pt 1

I just finished Kingdom Hearts 3 and am feeling so many complicated feelings. I am happy to finally get the 3rd installment I have been waiting for most of my adult life for. I remember playing the first game significantly after it came out due to not having a ps2 till later. I was able to buy the second game at launch and liked it a lot. Looking back on all the games I’ve played I realized that I have a lot to say and want to write. So here it goes, a part review and part retrospective of every … Continue reading Kingdom Hearts Retrospective: Pt 1

Donkey Kong and Lefties

I am so jealous that Hbomberguy and Ash Sakar got to do an interview together. These two are some of favorite people and I admit I am super jealous they got to hang out. I feel these two people are important messengers for the message of the true left. Hbomberguy is one of the best Youtube personalities out there. I discovered him when I was starting to get sick and tired of the Sargon of Akkads and people who seemed to rant about social justice warriors too much. Even when I was a supporter of people like TJ Kirk (The … Continue reading Donkey Kong and Lefties

Miles Edgeworth: Character Analysis

Miles Edgeworth is the kind of character that I end up really liking because of the strength of his character arc. It is important to note, that personally, I probably wouldn’t get along with the prolific prosecutor. He is very cool, distant, and is not very emotional. These are all things that instantly put me on guard. I am more expressive, emotional, and passionate. I also do not have his deductive reasoning abilities. However, his character arc, is so good, and makes me really love the ability of this man, to reexamine his own belief systems and attitudes, and change … Continue reading Miles Edgeworth: Character Analysis

Ace Attorney: My favorite characters

The Ace Attorney series immediately won me over with its brilliant music and engrossing storyline. But without the crazy and memorable characters the series wouldn’t be nearly as enjoyable. Each character is incredibly odd and fleshed out and some even have their own theme music. Here are my top ten overall characters in the Ace Attorney series. I will be including every entry including the side series starring Miles Edgeworth. My only rules are: The character has to make an impact on me, as the player, and I must be able to at least explain briefly why Limit the number … Continue reading Ace Attorney: My favorite characters

Phoenix Wright: Justice for All Review
