Some personal things that spoke to me in 2018.
A while back, I can't remember if I decided on the podcast or on a stream, I made a commitment to finally beat Yama in Spelunky. Not only beat him for the first time, but I wanted to do it on stream. With the announcement of Spelunky 2 and my overall enjoyment of games like Dead Cells, Enter the … Continue reading The End of Kielunkin’???
2018 on a personal level was a year that kind of challenged my own thoughts about myself, my life and abilities in ways I more or less just let come at me. With the sole exception of proposing to my partner, I feel like, if I were in Vegas, I would've been saying "let it … Continue reading 2018 — Game Over: Would You Like to Continue?

As time grows.
As I come to a close, more art and characters are expected to shine.
Knowing the past has help what we play today.
Why remakes and reimagine games are needed and beautiful.

It was until the Super NES was doing more on their system with games like Starfox and Donkey Kong Country. At that time, Nintendo had to think outside since NEO-GEO was bringing the "arcade" experience home....for $200 a game, Sega was doing Sega CD and interactive games, Turbographix entering the scene with the HuCards and Turbo CD.
Seeing the tricks, previews, exclusive game features, and more would be the highlight as I read and absorb the information that was being poured. Since the Nintendo Entertainment System was my first official own system (my parents had an Atari) and my brother owning a Sega Master System, I had the world of every aspect of games. Added with Arcades and you can see why I still have an affinity for games to this day.

Why we root for them, place our decisions based on our morals and personality, and other reasons. Our relationships, meaningless or not, is why we love them … Continue reading The Beautiful Relationship We Have
