Yoshi’s Crafted World: My First Impression

Yoshi’s Crafted World: My First Impression

Last week, Nintendo held its first Nintendo Direct of the year. When big gaming companies do that, I like to at least keep up with the happenings, even though I can’t watch them at work because I don’t want to make the IT people mad at me.

There was a lot of info we got in that Direct (this great article from Polygon has the full list of announcements), but the one I was really interested in? The demo for Yoshi’s Crafted World.

My Top 5 Custom Content Sets for the Sims 4

My Top 5 Custom Content Sets for the Sims 4

I think one of my biggest frustrations with the Sims is how limited it can be in terms of home design. It didn’t take me long to run out of ideas with the base-game items, and eventually, I started getting the expansion and stuff packs just so I could build with their items.

I even started following a bunch of different Instagram accounts dedicated to design for the Sims 4, watching what they created and then driving myself crazy trying to find those items in official packs.

Sorry, but it has. It’s been just over 13 years since its predecessor, Kingdom Hearts 2, and it’s been just about six years now since it was announced we’d be getting a third. Continue reading “Why I’m Not Playing Kingdom Hearts 3 This Week”

Pokémon Let’s Go: A Girly Geek Review

Pokémon Let’s Go: A Girly Geek Review

Back in August last year, I was super excited about the prospect of the first Pokémon game to ever hit the Switch. There was a lot I was looking forward to; from the Pokéball Plus to playing multiplayer, and especially finally being able to walk around with my Pokémon again.

I kind of resigned myself to not being able to play it right away, because we didn’t have a Switch and because we didn’t have the money to buy ourselves one.

But then, for Christmas, I got one. And what was the first game I bought for it?

That’s right: Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee. Continue reading “Pokémon Let’s Go: A Girly Geek Review”

My 2019 Game Goals (and My First-Ever Bullet Journal)

My 2019 Game Goals (and My First-Ever Bullet Journal)

I don’t fully know what inspired it, but I recently decided it would be a super fun idea to try my hand at bullet journaling. I’ve been really obsessed with how they look on Instagram for a while now, and although I’m not very artistic, I thought it’d be a good weekend project.

But what could I draw? I hummed and hawed over a calendar or a weekly schedule or something basic, until I found the perfect idea. I’d draw a game goals list, of course! Continue reading “My 2019 Game Goals (and My First-Ever Bullet Journal)”
