Currently Playing

I'm not currently playing any video games. I just finished Assemble with Care by ustwo Games. They made the Monument Valley games I previously wrote about. Assemble with Care was a fun little game. Each level (or story section) was small enough to complete in a single sitting. It also…

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are released tomorrow. I don't think I'm going to be getting this one. Yet. Since 2015, I've played a handful of Pokémon games, mainly on the Nintendo 3DS. I've also played Pokémon Sword on the Nintendo Switch. I really liked these games. Particularly the games on…

Astro's Playground

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

I have a video game backlog that is about a mile long. So many new games to play, so what do I do? I play a game that came out in 1992, 30 years ago. Last week, I finished playing through The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past…

Some of my favorite things - 2021 Edition
