The Many Marvelous Faces of Stan Lee

The Many Marvelous Faces of Stan Lee

Let’s be honest here—as much as we all love Marvel movies, half the fun is looking for the Stan Lee cameo we all know will be there.

As the creator of several of our favourite heroes, including Spiderman, Iron Man, Thor, and Black Panther, it’s certainly a nice touch to see his face in the films, uniting the stories across time, space, and alternate universes. Continue reading “The Many Marvelous Faces of Stan Lee”

The New Superstars: Mario and Luigi’s Remade RPG

The New Superstars: Mario and Luigi’s Remade RPG

About two months ago, my sister asked to borrow my DS Lite. She was on a nostalgia spree, and wanted to replay Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga, but well, since her GBA went the way of every console whose buttons ceded to the hands of less-than-gentle kids, that was the only way she could.

Why I Love Video Game Weddings

When I started playing Harvest Moon, it was partially because my sister made it look amazingly fun, and partially because it was a much more inspiring choice for my 17-year-old self than FarmVille.

But I was (and am) a romantic at heart.

Which means there was a part of me that had seen way too many Disney movies and literally just wanted to play because it would let me marry one of the characters. Continue reading “Why I Love Video Game Weddings”

Q&A with Erin

Q&A with Erin

So lately, I’ve been getting all kinds of messages from you guys asking about me, my gaming habits, my Instagram secrets, and more.

It’s really sweet, but I have to be honest here for a minute; I really didn’t expect so many people to be curious about lil old me!

I do my best to get to everything, but sometimes I just run out of time. So, to address that, I thought it’d be fun to take some time today and answer some of the common questions I’ve been getting! Continue reading “Q&A with Erin”
