First Impressions: Metroid: Samus Returns

Published February 1, 2018 by Amanda B. Greene


Metroid: Samus Returns is a great return to its roots as a two-dimensional platforming shooter on the Nintendo 3DS. So far, I’ve gotten a few hours into the game and I’m liking it. This is more of what previous games like Metroid: Other M should have been like. Here are my first impressions…

Review: Pokemon Ultra Sun

Published January 15, 2018 by Amanda B. Greene


Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are remasters or definitive editions of sorts to Pokemon Sun and Moon respectively. As the final entries on the Nintendo DS/3DS family of handhelds for the franchise, Nintendo really put in the effort to make these games great. I picked up the sunny version when it came out, and I’ve recently completed it, so here’s the review.

Review: The Legend Of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D

Published January 10, 2018 by Amanda B. Greene


The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is a strange entry in the franchise as it goes through a lot of different emotions surrounding experiences of loneliness, hopelessness, pressure, and so on. Its Nintendo 3DS version is no different in that regard, and has only slight differences from the original N64 debut. I’ve had this game for a while, but I just recently finished it on the last day of 2017; check out Father Titan’s Essentials Challenge blog post featuring me by clicking here.

I don’t have a Nintendo Switch yet, but I’d like to get one eventually sometime next year. Some great games have already come out like Breath of the Wild (Still awesome on the Wii U!) and Super Mario Odyssey. Still, I need more than a handful of titles to truly win me over. In this article, I’ll list some of my wishes and ideas for the newest console.

Warning: There will be major spoilers for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows Of Valentia. If you haven’t beaten the main story yet, then you probably shouldn’t read this blog post. Maybe bookmark it for later? You’ve been warned.

Review: Fire Emblem Heroes

Published September 6, 2017 by Amanda B. Greene


The mobile game, Fire Emblem Heroes, has been gaining more popularity lately as more fans, new and old alike, are joining in as updates continue to come in. It has improved greatly since it first came out, so I thought it would be a perfect time to review it. I’ve been playing Heroes a lot ever since they released the special characters voted on from the Choose Your Legends event. So, let’s get started!

Review: Fire Emblem Echoes

Published June 2, 2017 by Amanda B. Greene


Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, or Echoes for short, is the latest game entry in the Fire Emblem series that released on May 19th, 2017. It actually goes back to the roots by essentially recreating Fire Emblem Gaiden, the second game of the franchise that was only released in Japan in 1992. What made that one special was how it did things differently from the others like having dungeons. Now everyone can experience the great story and gameplay worldwide on the Nintendo 3DS.

I highly recommend Echoes, though if you are completely new to Fire Emblem, you may want to start with Awakening and Fates first to get a better idea of where the franchise is mostly headed. Echoes has a harder difficulty reminiscent of old Fire Emblem games, so keep that in mind. Without further ado, let’s get started.
