Local Con-fare

On May 6th I had the pleasure to be part of a nerdfest in my local community. Hosted by the Owen Sound and North Grey Union Public Library. The Owen Sound Mini Comic Convention. Hosted by the youth services.  In some ways it was superior to my excursions to Toronto’s Fan Expo. It is the…

Kingdom Of My Nostalgic Heart

When Kingdom Hearts III was announced, yet again, for release I was beyond uninterested. I was downright bored of the franchise. I was eagerly awaiting KH3 since 2007. The lack of information on the new title and the constant releases of games based on only one tiny part of the main story made me lose…

Final Fantasy XV: After The End

My last post was all about how FFXV struggles to take its place in the series of Final Fantasy. The game still has a lot of problems with story progression and the building of the world around Noctis et all. But there is a lot in the game that makes up for the poor story….

Four Guys In A Car

Final Fantasy XV. I didn’t know what to expect from this title.  I am a huge Final Fantasy fan girl. I played the series, and some non-main title games since 1997, when FFVII was released. I knew I was going to get it. Even after feeling like the XIII titles burned me as a fan…

FINAL FANTASY XV: Kingsglaive REVIEW

(This review will be mostly spoiler free.) (There is one, and it’s hardly a spoiler in the film.) FINAL FANTASY XV: Kingsglaive is an ambitious project created by Square Enix that is a prequel to FFXV. Have you seen it yet? You really should!  Seriously. Watch it right now. It sets up the story for…

The Joker? *Gasp*

This is going to be an unpopular opinion, but here it goes…. Spoilers Ahoy… I really liked Jared Leto as the Joker. He was different from Nicholson and Ledger, and his characterization fit into the world of Suicide Squad. The “Vat of Hot Topic” actually worked for him in the film. I went into the…

The Rise of Destiny

Destiny was hyped as the next Halo. It was literally called “Halo on Sony” across the internet. This isn’t much of a stretch for the pre-release given, that Bungie, the creators of Halo, also created Destiny. Many fans of the FPS genre figured that Destiny would, without a doubt, kill Halo. Sadly this didn’t happen….

Heavensward Aether Current Locations (July 2016)

With the latest patch in FFXIV Heavensward, Square Enix has adjusted the locations of the Aether Currents needed to complete the ability to fly certain mounts on each “Flight Map” in Heavensward Locations. So far I have been unable to locate a site site that lists the updated locations. This page will update as I…

The PC Master Race

  I am a console gamer. A loyal Sony fanbaby. Minus the love of Nathan Drake. (Seriously never played.) What is the PC Master Race? The term “PC Master Race” was coined by Yahtzee from the Escapist in his 2008 video about The Witcher. It is a jab at the elitism within gaming culture and…

The Failure of Infinity

Infinity didn’t quite go beyond, and crashed quite horribly into a mess of broken dreams and heartbroken fans. Disney’s Infinity was a bold addition to the toys-to-life genre. I thoroughly enjoyed the game since 1.0 but sadly my kids only started getting interested in it. They still have difficulty in understanding that Mickey does not…

Gamergirling 101

I have been a geek for as long as I can remember. There was no big event that I can point to and say “yep, that is when I became a geek.” My father read The Sword of Shannara series as a bed time story when I was little, I grew up watching Star Trek…

Gotta Catch Them All

Everyone knows that one guy, the super huge fan that collects everything they can get their hands on that is based on a company, series, or specific game. I myself have a decent collection of items based on Final Fantasy and Dragon Age. Collecting is encouraged in the gaming community with limited runs of special…
