The Fourth Ith Thtrong With Thith One

It’s May 4th today!


Which is now celebrated as Star Wars Day because of a vague semblance between “fourth” and “force,” especially if you have a lisp (or is it lithp?). Easy jokes aside, let’s talk about my love of Thtar Warth for a change!

The Busters of Ghostbusting

Today is “Administrative Professionals Day,” yet another day where a calendar suggests that we respect a certain person, when in reality we should just respect everyone who deserves it all the time for the hard work they do in any field. Anyway, Sony released a video today coinciding with the release of the 2016 version of Ghostbusters (which I previously talked about how I’m not really concerned), which focused solely on Chris Hemsworth’s character Kevin, the receptionist for the ghostbusters.

What’s In A Name? That Which We Call Final Fantasy

It may come as no small surprise that I’m an avid fan of the Final Fantasy franchise, and truthfully, the whole of the products that Square-Enix creates, since their styles I dig permeate through each and every one of those products.

I’ve been a fan pretty much since I played Final Fantasy back on the NES, and that love was solidified with Final Fantasy VI (III at the time) on the SNES. I’ve also been in love with Secret of ManaChrono Trigger, and Vagrant Story just to name a few of their non-FF games.


Vagrant Story Reinforcements

Vagrant Story is the quintessential dungeon crawler for me. Ashley Riot? The quintessential swashbuckling badass

A Tale for Halloween

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’ve liked writing and telling stories for a long time. Back in elementary school, we had what was called “Writer’s Workshop”, and there were no two words I loved hearing more (other than “pizza Fridays”). Writer’s Workshop was where they taught us to write, obviously, and we were encouraged to make up stories, fictional or otherwise for the sake of writing practice. It was one of the few things I always looked forward to in school because it let me cut loose my creativity.

When I got to first grade, out of nowhere I began this annual story whenever October rolled around. It chronicled the exploits of two young brothers, Ross and Ryan, who lived pretty much in exactly the same middle-of-nowhere, surrounded-by-hills neighborhood that I did growing up. The hills that surrounded their little slice suburbia were home to a terrible menace that appeared every Halloween, a monster that if not defeated before the night’s end would wreak havoc around the neighborhood. Ross and Ryan made it their mission to stop the monster. With my six-year-old brain, I called it The Halloween Monster, and every school year it got a sequel, appended with a Roman numeral I was so proud of knowing.

One of many things I learned from video games, really

There’s an “I” in “Team” if You Lop off the T’s Arms

I would say that Valve should just hurry up and make an animated series out of Team Fortress 2 already, but they’d never get past the second episode anyway.
