Casual News – A Gaming Drought is Coming


Guys and gals, I’d like to announce the newest addition to our gaming family!

It’s gonna be awhile before I can game on my PS4 again. I know, I know what you’re thinking…how will you ever decide if you want a game that’s already been out for a year or two without my input? I am deeply sorry for this, but my wife and I are moving across the country. Believe in your gamer’s intuition for the coming months!

To cope with this drought, my wife is finally getting a new Nintendo system. I acquired one of the Fire Emblem Fates to play along the road trip as well. Why did I chose Conquest, you ask? Let me answer that by asking you this…would you rather be a LannisterĀ or a Stark?

We would have gotten Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, however, they were sold out in this remote section of Alaska. We will most likely pick it up on a stop along the way.

Everyone, my PS4 is packed. Our honeymoon stage is over. We have to get through some dark times now. I ask you to be patient with me. We can face this obstacle as a unit, and I believe we will be stronger for it.

In the meantime, I have a favor to ask. If any of you stream on Twitch, share your accounts with me in the comments so I can live vicariously through you! Also, if anyone has any good 3DS recommendations, that would be appreciated.


Casual Reviews – The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

I never played Nintendo. I started on PC, got an Xbox, 360, PS3, and finally, PS4. It’s as if I never had a gamer childhood. My gaming memories revolve around my dad explaining how I would never be allowed to play a video game if I didn’t first learn how to build a computer…or my mother allowing only a few new games a year. If I was going to do this…I couldn’t waste time with games I would outgrow. Console/game choices were made like a parent buying clothes for a child during a growth spurt. One poor choice would result in almost a yearlong drought of metaphorical gaming underwear.

With my wife came the one console she has ever owned (which she won in a raffle). The GameCube. I welcomed it into our family, gave it a place among my own consoles, and, last weekend, I finally played her favorite game.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Continue reading
