"Now that we've gathered our bearings..."

It’s been over a month now since I finished the main storyline of Final Fantasy XV. Boy oh boy was that ending a doozy. As per usual, my entire playthrough was such an emotional experience — so much that the week that followed after I finished the game was filled with a lot of post-video game blues, emotional trauma, bittersweet nostalgia, and crying.

Lots and lots and lots of crying. Nothing new with me, it seems.

FFXV tells the tale of Prince Noctis Lucis Caelum — a.k.a. Noct, a.k.a. my precious darling SON WHO MUST BE PROTECTED AT ALL COSTS — as he travels across the nation with his three buddies: Prompto (my sweet sunshine of a Chocobae), Ignis (resident Cooking Mama and all-around housewife), and Gladiolus (Papa Lion Daddy who does not need to keep his shirt on, thank you very much). Collectively, the fandom (myself included) refers to these four as the beloved Chocobros.

So the Chocobros are making their way to Altissia because Noct is set to marry his childhood friend, Lunafreya Nox Fleuret (former princess of Tenebrae and is also the ~*~Oracle~*~), as part of the negotiations regarding a peace treaty between Noct’s homeland, Lucis, and its nemesis, Niflheim.

Long story short, FFXV is all a glorified road trip about a bunch of bros and you think it’s all fun and games until the story progresses and all the feels start to come out and so when it all ends your soul is just ripped out from your body and-

A n y w a y, let’s talk about some of the pros and cons of FFXV, because there’s just so much I need to get off my chest before I finally combust from all the feelings and frustrations and everything in between.

In celebration of the latest Pokemon game (which at this point shouldn’t surprise anyone that there's a new Pokemon game) Ultra Sun and Moon, Ina and I have decided to comb through our knowledge of Pokemon, and try to imagine our own Pokemon teams. shhhh Ina and I did not miss Sun and Moon at all

I mean if an 11 year old kid can form a team and save the world, then we can too.

(somewhere in here is a pokemon revive joke about this blog that's just way too real)

Is This Real Life, Or Is It Danganronpa V3?

Of course this was going to happen. Of course. Considering my history with the Danganronpa franchise — and how much I’ve talked about it on this blog — it should come as no surprise that I am here, yet again, to blab on and on about the latest entry in the series: Danganronpa V3.

Having finished the game some weeks ago, I’ve allowed myself to bask in the V3 afterglow and to simply let That Ending™ simmer as I slowly processed it all. I have a LOT to say about V3 (then again, when do I not have so much to say when it comes to Danganronpa?), but I’ll keep more spoiler-y sections of my fangirling separate with a warning.

My Regrets Begin and End with Pre-Sequel

Borderlands, Borderlands 2, and Borderlands Pre-Sequel.

Apparently major gaming companies can’t count to 3, go figure.

I Believe I Can Fly... With A Headache

This is a long overdue post (because clearly I am bad at this arcadexpoints thing) but hey, what better way to slither my way back into the blog than with a post about an old game in light of its sequel’s trailer being released at this year’s E3?

Basically: Gravity Rush.

Congrats On Your Face

Yes. Ina and I will be talking about video game crushes. Which is very appropriate for a Valentines Post.

And by 'talking about video game crushes,' we mean 'mindless fangirling.' You have been warned.
