Harvest Moon Light of Hope: A Girly Geek Review

Harvest Moon Light of Hope: A Girly Geek Review

Last weekend, I had planned to be super productive and get a lot done. I was going to clean the entire apartment, do all the dishes, get the laundry done, and get a whole bunch of work done for my blog.

But then, for Valentine’s Day, Shane surprised me with my very own copy of Harvest Moon: Light of Hope for the Switch.

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.

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”

New Year, New Console: What I Love About the Switch

I still remember the day the first Nintendo Switch ad came out. I was at work, at an engineering news site with a big focus on new and upcoming tech. Two of my friends came rushing over, phones in hand, eager to show me.

I remember being distinctly unimpressed. I don’t know what was going on in my brain at the time (it’s very possible I was having a rough day, because that happened a LOT at that job), but it just didn’t inspire me. Continue reading “New Year, New Console: What I Love About the Switch”

What Can We Expect from World of Final Fantasy Maxima?

What Can We Expect from World of Final Fantasy Maxima?

World of Final Fantasy was my first real experience with the Final Fantasy series. I fell in love almost as soon as I saw it; everything about it was adorable, from the character design to the Pokémon-meets-Chiquita-Banana combat style.

It didn’t take me long at all to finish the main story. Which, by the way, broke my heart completely.

Today, World of Final Fantasy Maxima hits the shelves. It’s the first real update the game has gotten since its release in 2016—and it’s exciting for a few reasons! Continue reading “What Can We Expect from World of Final Fantasy Maxima?”
