    Atelier Ryza and comfort fiction

    2020 has been off to a slow start for me, mostly because I’m waiting on some (good) job news, and also from personal choice. After taking November and December off after leaving EG, I’m kind of feeling the rumbles inside of me to get working and get creative again. In 2019 I felt that I […]

    2019: The Reflection Post

    It’s hard to start this kind of post without the usual cliches; 2019 was a bit of a year of growth and getting to know myself, and I’ll say that I probably ended up in the positive when it comes to me as a person, even though I don’t feel it at the moment. In […]

    Playing: Ring Fit Adventure

    I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve fallen prey to my share of fitness gimmicks and failed gym habits. I’m always a sucker for trying again, however, and something about Ring Fit Adventure for the Nintendo Switch caught my eye.

    Taking up space: my trip to Japan

    I’ve been putting off writing something about my Japan trip, mostly because it’s hard to know exactly where to start. This probably won’t be the only thing I write about it, but I feel it’s the most important thing for me to commit to a post.

    Me at 30: some advice

    I wanted to some writing to expand on a tweet that I made yesterday that had some advice for people that might want it. My own qualifications aren’t that impressive; all I can say is that I’ve survived to 30 working in the game industry, and that therapy and massive amounts of introspection have caused […]

    Working with walkthroughs, and skipping gaming experiences

    I’ve been making a concerted effort to cross games off my backlog lately before I buy any more. I’ve also been looking at that backlog and thinking “am I really going to go back to this game that I’m not enthused about to finish it?” and realizing that the answer is probably no.

    Haikyuu!!, and killing The Small Giant

    Haruichi Furudate writes good shōnen sports manga — I say this, because I’ve been really enjoying Haikyu!! lately, and I felt like I should explain why. To note, this post is going to spoil the last six or so chapters of the manga, which is currently on Chapter 338 and onward.
