Cosplay Update!

Hey, everyone! Just a quick post because I’m getting over a bit of a bug here. Just a little cosplay update because some of my goodies have started arriving!

On Video Game Remakes: Resident Evil 2 and Others

So the remake of Resident Evil 2 dropped this week, and we got it. Which was unsurprising since I’d preordered it for the other half for Christmas since it’s his favorite of the series. So tonight we were talking about it and others we’d like to see redone this way, so let’s talk about that.

2018: A Retrospective

Well, everyone, I’ll admit I didn’t know what to write about. I haven’t done anything, haven’t seen anything (thanks, weather) lately. This was very close to just being pictures of and talking about my cat. But instead let’s talk about 2018 and what happened. Of course now I went from nothing to write about to lots to write about, but we’ll start here. So this is my year in review. Not really in any particular order, just the things that made an impact on me this past year.

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey- First Thoughts

Hey everyone, time to ring in the New Year! And I’ll be doing it by telling you about Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, or, the game that might turn me around on this whole franchise. This first-thoughts-review was supposed to go up yesterday, but I of course got hung up researching Minoan and Mycenaean frescoes and well, you know how it is. But anyway, let’s talk about the game! No spoilers either!

New Cosplays!

Hey everyone! I was going to do an opinion/editorial-type post about Disney live-action remakes, but then I decided I didn't want to do something possibly quite negative right before Christmas. So instead I was just going to talk about some fun new cosplays that I'm working on/planning. Also hoping to show some of these off next year somewhere, although we don't have anything planned as of yet. So here we go!

So Many Trailers!

Hey everyone. I guess I didn’t need to wonder what to write about this week. There were so many trailers this week that it was a no-brainer. Let’s get right to it!

Fallout 76 Review!

Hey everyone, back again with a review. I know Fallout 76 has been out for a little while, and, while I did play the Beta, I wanted to spend some time with the full game first before writing a review. I thought that was only fair. So, here it goes. I won’t be getting into spoilers, either, as per usual. Oh, and all the screenshots/pictures posted are my own.

Bohemian Rhapsody Review

Hey everyone, back with a review for Bohemian Rhapsody, the newest biopic of the band Queen, and especially of their lead singer, the incomparable Freddie Mercury. I don’t really know if this needs to be a spoiler-free review. I mean, Queen is and has been enough in the public psyche and their history isn’t exactly a secret. So, spoilers, I guess? I don’t know, do with this what you will.

What to Expect When You’re Exercising

Alternate Title- It’s a Strange World or: How I Learned to Stop Griping and Love the Treadmill

Hey everyone, this is something really different from the usual today. I’ve thought about writing something like this for a little while but I’ve always put it off. Mainly because I didn’t want to come off as some kind of expert who knows what the hell they’re doing (I don’t, really), like I’m proselytizing (I’m not), or that I’m bragging (again, not). I just wanted to write the kind of advice that I myself could’ve used when I started this whole thing: something from a normal person who’s just trying to get in better shape and is honest about the process. So bear with me as I try to muddle through.

Costume Update: The Reveal!

Hey everyone! I know I missed last week (totally forgot with the house renos, to be totally honest), but I'm making up for it with a super special post! Today we will be doing the reveal for both the Diablo 3 Barbarian version 1.0 AND the Princess Shuri Pink Black Panther! Read on everyone, because I'm really happy with how all this turned out!
