The Best News from the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct

This direct, needless to say, has gotten everyone very excited. Personally, I couldn't have imagined this game looking as good as it does, both graphically and gameplay-wise. There was so much revealed that I just had to make a list of my favourite parts from the direct! And so, without further ado, here they are, in all of their amazing glory...

Top 10 Games of the Decade

Yes, I know that it's the end of January and I'm very late to jump on the bandwagon. Cut me some slack though, at the beginning of this month, I moved to the big city and started my first full-time job. I mean, with my hobbies including drawing, DND, and a (probably) unhealthy obsession with Toontown Rewritten, time is something that's been very hard to come by and these kinds of lists do take time...

As someone who loves cute aesthetic, RPG's, and anime girls, you'd think that I'd have discovered the world of Gacha a long time ago - yet, my journey is just now beginning. After playing Nintendo's Dragalia Lost, my life has been overtaken and dedicated to collecting the best (and cutest) warriors I can get my hands on.

What soon followed was me being awoken in the early hours of the morning to cries of "How could you think Shrek one is the best one?!?!?!" and "Shrek Two is obviously superior!" Needless to say, this has now been a debate lasting all day and ruining more friendships than a game of monopoly. So, I am here to settle the argument once and for all and justify why Shrek one is the best film in the Shrek franchise. (This is a blog post I wrote for Buzzfeed in 2018)

‘The Shapeshifting Detective’ Leaves Room For Improvement

The Shapeshifting Detective is a new game made by 'D'avekki Studios' (Creator of The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker). An FMV game, the player plays as - such as the title implies - a shapeshifting detective named Sam solving a murder case. This introduces an interesting mechanic: the ability to change into different characters in order to trick people into giving you more information. While this mechanic offers excitement into the gameplay, it is let down by a story that feels incomplete and slightly unsatisfying...
