Hey everyone! I haven’t been blogging as frequently because I got accepted for a full-time position at an environmental science lab. I also went back and edited some of my old anime art by referencing a few anatomy tutorials I found on DeviantArt. I did end up creating some Pokémon fanart after finishing the remakes of Gens 1 and 2.
I will be continuing my playthrough of Pokémon Black since Gen 5 changed up the predictable storytelling formula and actually questioned the concept of capturing Pokémon just for the sake of battling. I’m aware Gen 5 received a lot of hate from fans who thought the Pokémon designs were ugly, but I think Pokémon should be judged by its gameplay instead.

This may sound pointless, but it is a good way to listen to the OSTs without being under pressure from fighting a hard boss or trying to overcome a timed stage. If it is copyrighted, then it might not stay on YouTube. Buying soundtracks is the safe, legal option.

On Steam, there are thousands of potential video games to review. I currently own 250+ awesome, well-known titles stored in my Steam Library. My goal is to play through at least half of them and suggest which titles are worth your time. It is my job to scout for games by separating the “wheat from the chaff” so to speak.
As the only writer, I won’t be able to write more than 1-2 posts a day due to working full-time. If more people were to enjoy reading my reviews, then I will consider hiring professional writers who are both enthusiastic gamers and dedicated to sharing the latest news on popular titles and PC gaming culture.
