Animal Crossing Wishes and Pet Peeves – Part 2

While we have no news on the next Animal Crossing game, Nintendo hasn’t left us completely high and dry: they announced a spin-off called “Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer.” It consists of you helping to design villager homes and will be the first game to support the new amiibo...

Animal Crossing Wishes and Pet Peeves – Part 1

With Nintendo participating in E3 this year, I am hoping that we will get some news (although unlikely) about Animal Crossing Wii U. I think a new AC game would sell even more consoles than the new Smash Brothers; and how awesome would it be if they came out...

Guild Wars 2: If Only…

I really am not trying to beat the dead horse that is my once love, but now hate for Guild Wars 2. It’s said, the further you spend away from something, the more you can be objective about it. Well for me, that time has only soured me more...

Guild Wars 2: Post Script

I hit the wall. I saw it coming but it couldn’t be avoided: I’m done with Guild Wars 2. We took a month off earlier this year when we started to get a little burnt out and came back feeling a little renewed, but it didn’t last that long....

Anet, we have a problem. Make that problem-s.

For the past two years, ArenaNet has been revealing a steady stream of information about its upcoming MMO, Guild Wars 2. Many questions have been asked of them (often repeatedly) regarding basic issues such as “what is going to be the most powerful class?” or “is there a level...

So Many Good Games…

Seriously. Why are so many good games coming out in the next few months? Last year was a horrible year for gaming; this year is looking to be the best ever. I’m playing three recently released games: Portal 2, Crysis 2 and Sanctum, and I missed a couple that...
