Product Review: Monopoly Gamer Puts Nintendo Twist on Classic Game

When I first heard about Monopoly Gamer, I rolled my eyes. “Yet another cheap shot at gamers to buy Monopoly for the 50th time with a dumb gimmick,” I thought to myself. It’s not the first time a company slapped “Gamer” onto a product in a cheap attempt to sell a few more products. (Full disclosure: I did end up buying one some time later, with some personal disgust in my heart, but I couldn’t pass up the color scheme.)

At first glance, it’s just Monopoly with plastic Mario figures instead of generic metal ones, and coins instead of money. Plus, they’re adding IRL downloadable content by means of extra figures you can buy. Commence even deeper eye roll. However, as ashamed as I am of myself, that was enough for me to buy it.

Joshua is bad about talking about himself, but won't shut up about anything else. A nerd since birth, he's experienced a lot of the culture. A gamer by nature, a writer, an actor, a film lover, an English major, and a recent discoverer of Dungeons and Dragons. Currently, he lives in Oregon, where his primary focus is to write novels, hopefully get a comic book series published, and maybe try his hand at making a very entry-level tabletop RPG game. He's always had idiotically lofty goals.

Top Ten Best Shinies in Pokemon

Let me open with a confession: I spent hours last night on my Nintendo 3DS running a little animated version of myself back and forth from a girl standing next to a bipedal cow in a hood, to a little fence enclosed area, and running in aimless circles on a three-tailed bull so some pixelated eggs would hatch on the off chance I’d find a fire larva of a slightly different color than the other fire larva.

I’ve already done this 300 times.

If that doesn’t sound crazy enough, I’m prepared to do it another 200 times before I start getting frustrated, and probably another 500 more before I give up for a while. Continue reading Top Ten Best Shinies in Pokemon

Nintendo Obsessed Nerdarchist: Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Hey Listen!!!

ZeldaSo, I picked up a little game for the Nintendo Switch recently called Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and oh, boy, is this one the game to end all games. Well, it is for many, myself included. See, this game hits all the points I look for in a game. I am a mixed bag of gamerdom. Sometimes I want to pick up a game and screw around for an hour or less. Sometimes I want to veg out for a day and really lose myself. This particular Nintendo game is totally fine with both, and even has things for all ages. I am exceptionally proud to say my six year old actually solved the Akj Va’quot shrine puzzle before I could even fully look at the thing. Seriously, thank you Nintendo for that proud parental moment. I digress. The game hits all the points, and we will go over many in this article. Read on, and figure out how the latest Zelda entry stacks up against this nearly three-decade-long dynasty. Continue reading Nintendo Obsessed Nerdarchist: Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Nintendo Switch: First Impressions of a Nintendo Obsessed Nerdarchist

nintendo switchThe Nintendo Switch is out, and it is in my living room. Yeah, it’s neat, but what can we really say about it that has not been said? Well, with this I hope to say, in my own words, my opinions on this new system both good and bad. Yes, I said bad, because frankly one should endeavor to always find the bad in a situation for the purposes of improving the future. Keep in mind I have the launch system, Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and  1-2-Switch. Without further babbling, here is what I thought.
