Why I haven’t Updated as Often

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.

Taking a short break from blogging

In case you’re wondering, no this blog isn’t shut down forever. Far from it, I’m going to share my opinion on Video Game Controls like I promised long ago…once I stop procrastinating and get back to work. Besides, I’m not giving up on blogging when I don’t even have my first review out yet.

I hope you guys admire the new site design because I’ve already decided on the background images. I’ll make it easier for you to find the latest reviews & walkthroughs by placing them in alphabetical order by title.
