Starting a Collection for a New System

It’s been a loooong while since I’ve talked about video game collecting. That’s a real shame considering game collecting is largely what I do in the greater world of video gaming, and in large one of the main reasons I started this blog in the first place. I was reintroduced, if you will, to the collecting spirit while recording the latest Boss Rush episode. In it, Jon and Mat both had stories about getting a Nintendo Switch, and how there are so many great games on them to play. That idea of buying a new console and seeing all the titles newly available to you got me excited about finding those quality, sometimes totally random, games no one else may be playing. Because of this, I started thinking about my PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch collections. While my purchasing power has been limited for the past year or two, the games for said consoles are still releasing, still lowering (or raising) in price, and still becoming something of a collector’s item. With that, I wanted to divulge some tips I have been using to start up a new game collection for the modern consoles. (more…)

The Surprising Mediocrity of M&M’s Beach Party

As is the nature of many game collectors, we tend to get quite a few games in our libraries that don’t really have any saving graces to be there. Occasionally I’ll get a game I took a chance on that turns out to be decent if not good (Check out The Munchables on Wii for example). But more often than not we’ll take a chance on a random game and it turns out to be complete trash (Check out Dino Strike on Wii for example).

And then a game like M&M’s Beach Party shows up, and isn’t so terrible we can outright ridicule it, but it isn’t good so we can’t straight up recommend it either.

The struggles of game collecting, I’ll tell ya. (more…)

Games I Have Somehow Yet to Play

Recently I picked up Valkyria Chronicles Remastered for PS4 via the Humble Bundle. The tactical/strategy RPG from the PS3 era was always on my radar, and the positive reception the game garnered made me think, “Yeah, I’ll play that someday.” And then someday became hopefully this year. This year became this console. Then this console became an old console, and I never got around to it. This is the case all too frequently with me: I really want to play some game, but for one reason or another, they slip through the cracks. While there are tons of games I want to play, there are a few that I actually do want to play and never get around to them. Even better case in point: I’ve wanted to make a post such as this for awhile now, but never got around to it! So let’s discuss today in no particular order ten games I really wanted to play, but never actually have.

Top Games of 2017: Fire Emblem Heroes

The year of 2017 will go down as one of the best in all of gaming. From the release of Nintendo’s Switch console to the abundant amount of triple A titles worth your time released this calendar year, it’s hard to find any other time it’s been this great to be a gamer.

This is one of them. (more…)
