Identifying with a video game character can be cool – until you identify with a cautionary tale.
via “Let it Go, and Move On” – Seeing Myself in Ace Attorney’s Nahyuta Sahdmadhi — Adventure Rules
Ian from Adventure Rules related the phrase “Let it Go and Move On” said by Nahyta Sahmadhi in Ace Attorney to his life. The post is an important discussion on mental health and how using “Let it Go and Move On” properly helps Adventure Rules with his mental health. It also contrast Ian’s idea of “Let it Go and Move On” to Nahyta’s idea of “Let if Go and Move On.” I am glad that Ian took the courage to write such a personal post because mental health is important to take care of. I myself have anxiety and could learn to “let go” of where I think I should be in life or worrying about the future. Check out the post here and maybe you could learn some ideas on how to take care of your mental health as well!
Good animation is like a drug to me, it can completely intoxicate me, leaving me in a state of stupor. It doesn’t happen often because so many mainstream studios tend to stick with what is considered safe at the time. But every so often there are moments in certain animated films that grab me, the […]
via “Just a Cartoon”: It’s Time to Get Over the Stigma Attached to Animation! —
Siobhan wrote an article on why enjoying animation is not childish. I wholeheartedly agree with her! I love animation from films to anime. I also find them to be just as compelling as live action films! Sometimes I prefer them to live action films because I enjoy the art and work that goes into making animation! I also love that each animation has it’s own unique style like Studio Ghibli films! I do not like when watching animation is seen as being childish because animation is for everyone to enjoy and some animation is not even made for children!

Luna from Gamers United asks: what character do I like to play the most in tabletops?
via Ranking My Tabletop Characters and Their Classes: A Charming and Open Top Five — Adventure Rules
Adventure Rules wrote an interesting article recently about his tabletop characters! I loved this article because I have started getting into tabletop games! My friend convinced me to try D&D a couple of years ago and I am currently on my second session! I have played three characters!
- A Druid who could turn into animals and had a direwolf. I made her personality like mine except she was more bolder than I am.
- A Phoenix Sorceress who was a femme fatale
- A Half-elf Fey Warlock Monk. I made her a shy, intelligent goth who is working for Sherlock (played by another person in our campaign and yes the character is based on Sherlock Holmes!)
I think my favorite was my Druid because I loved being able to turn into animals, but I am slowly loving my Warlock Monk as well since I really developed her as a character so I could get better at role-playing!

Thanksgiving is just a few days away for many Americans who celebrate it. It’s a time for family (or friends) to gather together once more to give thanks for what we have and to eat ourselves into a turkey induced coma. While I look forward to piling my plate high with turkey, stuffing, mash potatoes, […]

If you’re new to “The Games That Define Us,” the adventure map is the perfect place to start. Video games exist as fragments on the timeline of our lives, and each one of us have chosen the adventure we feel most defines us.

via The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (2015) [PS4] — The Well-Red Mage
Winst0lf – The Bizzaro Mage wrote an amazing post on The Well Red Mage’s blog. Winst0lf gives a review of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt which is one of my all time favorite games. I loved the story, graphics, music, and the world! I loved the game so much, I picked up the books so I can read about The Witcher once I get around to reading them! Enjoy the post by clicking here!
As many probably know by now, one of the most anticipated games of the year, Red Dead Redemption 2, comes out tomorrow. The early reviews have dropped today, and with the average Metacritic score sitting at a 97, it is on track to become one of the most highly-reviewed games of all time. Ultimately, however, I am not […]
via The Toxic Effect of “You’re Not a Gamer” — HannieBee Games
HannieBee Games wrote about a a quote that was retweeted by Metacritc that insinuated that you are not a gamer if you do not play this game. We both do not like how this was phrased. I believe that you can call yourself a gamer if you do not want to or have not played certain games.
That was honestly one of my fears starting a blog at first. I did not know much about the blogging community and , being a young woman in my 20s, I did not know how accepting other gamers would be of me. I have not played all of the classic games like I have not played any Tomb Raider games. But, I honestly do not think that should matter. I like playing video games therefore I can call myself a gamer if I want to. Luckily, this community also believes that. You have all been accepting of me and my blog as well as other bloggers! Check out HannieBee Games post here and thank you HannieBee Games for the insightful blog post!
I may have already written a response post to a very kind Sunshine Blogger Award from Ian over at Adventure Rules in response to his question about endings and beginnings. But he asked another one of his nominees that deserves some consideration: which magical item or technological marvel from a video game would you use […]
via Video game items that need to exist in real life — Later Levels
Later Levels recently did a collaboration with other bloggers about what video game items they would want to have in real life! I really enjoyed reading this collaboration! I would pick a brush similar to the brush in Okami HD to have in real life! It could be so helpful! You could help the environment by watering plants and growing trees. You could also use it to bloom trees or plants. If used wisely it could help the environment and people! Check out the article here and let Later Levels know what video game items you would want in real life!
