Good time of day to you all. This post serves as a reminder (perhaps to myself) that the Merry Days of Anime™ block shall continue for a second year (or season?) in 2020. I’m pretty excited about it!Continue reading “I’m Gonna Do That Merry Days of Anime Thing Again”
I do not enjoy speedrunning. It’s a hyper-stressful, no-holds-barred precision fest of mega-alertness that I typically don’t care to partake in. This is doubly so when the subject in question is the entirety of a game, and not just one section. It requires patience, luck, knowledge, foresight, and skill to be able to say that you can beat something quicker than anything else. I hate it. Unfortunately, Prodigal is a game I played for review recently that I fell in love with, so when developer Colorgrave announced via Twitter that they were holding a speedrunning contest—with prizes to boot—how could I say no?Continue reading “I’m Participating in an Indie Game Speedrunning Contest”
Hey! That was a nice, impromptu vacation. I have returned.Continue reading “Top 10 Favorite Games After Three Years With KeenGamer”
Yes, I have returned to the blogging space. Yes, I returned just to ask a question.
Hello, everyone. I hope you all are doing well considering the circumstances of the world.
I am writing this update to inform everyone that my output will be (and has been, frankly) slowing down tremendously in the coming days/weeks/months/etc. I have recently gotten my part-time job back, and my work with KeenGamer has increased due to larger responsibilities and number of writers sending in articles. As such, I will not have the same amount of time to dedicate to writing articles for the blog.
This is not a death sentence, nor is it the beginning of the end. I am simply too preoccupied with adjusting to a busier lifestyle, combined with a relative lack of motivation to write about anything when my interest in games is at a high point. As these things tend to go, I will probably find myself re-invigorated with other subjects in due time, and my desire to write will follow.
With that said, I’m unsure of when I will write again for the blog and what I will write about. All I can ensure is that it will be something that I will want to write on. Maybe football; haven’t done much on that recently.
Thank you for your time. Have a great day.
What is this, my third or fourth football uniform ranking post? It’s been firmly established that I, who enjoys this violent game of men running into each other for fun, also care greatly for how it looks. No, not the plays, the players. Uniforms, that is. With this upcoming season, which may or may not be played until 2021, a total of seven teams have tweaked or outright changed the overall look of their players’ outfits. I am here to tell you why I like or dislike them, because I enjoy talking visual aesthetic. It’s a passion. Continue reading “Ranking 2020’s 7 New NFL Uniform Additions”
It’s been some time since I’ve done one of these “personal predicament” posts. Typically, these are things that I experience in my day-to-day life revolving things that interest me, that which confounds me or seem interesting enough to think upon. The “art” of critique and critical thinking is something that floods my mind often, and recently, Animal Crossing has been the primary subject. This will not be a full-on review of New Horizons (though I do have one), nor will it be a dissertation on why the original game is so much better. This will cover something I’ve felt a common occurrence in games from then and now, which has affected the way I approach and appreciate titles: speed.
No, Sonic the Hedgehog will not be mentioned here (though it could). Continue reading “Old Games Are Fast, New Games Are Slow | One of Many Personal Predicaments”
This year, I decided to stick to a certain position when drafting these posts: I will provide context, then let the videos do the talking. What will my commentary provide that isn’t already obvious from the first listen of these phenomenal tracks? It’s like when reality show “stars” describe what’s happening onscreen as it’s onscreen. Yeah, we can see. Continue reading “Top 10 Highest Quality SiIvaGunner Rips (2020 Edition)”
For those unaware, three years ago I started an annual tradition called March of the Movies, where I watch a film every day for the month of March and write reviews for them on the blog for people to peruse. The premise will be the same as it was last year: I watch a film at any part of a particular day and will release some sort of review, whether fully detailed or comically short, in that same specific day. I promise to kick myself into writing them far before 11:59 P.M.
As per my schedule with work and otherwise, one should expect my weekdays to be filled with longer, detailed reviews fairly early in the day, while weekends may see shorter reviews much later on.
In the years since I’ve started this block, I’ve grown as a blog to extend to topics outside of what my blog is typically known for (anime/manga). As such, my film choices likely won’t pertain to said one identifier, though I do plan to watch some anime-based films during the month.
This year, I do have a special plan for the month, which pertains to a joke that I discovered through research. Last week, I stumbled upon my old Rotten Tomatoes account, where I would rate and review films I viewed while I was still in high school (between 2009 and 2011). For my pride and your sanity, I will not link it, as some of my tastes at that time were… questionable. I’ve decided that every other day (even-numbered days), I will re-watch a film from that timeframe that made present me go, “I rated it what?!?!” Most will likely be bad films, but perhaps the old me had some refined preferences that I fail to see in my blinded, old state.
As always, I hope to see you there, and have a great day. For those interested, I also have an archive for past and present films included in this event.
