Animal Crossing: New Horizons Falls Short
By: R.P. Lauer - 4/14/2020 10:25 AM empty starempty starempty starempty starempty star
The latest entry in the Animal Crossing franchise has failed to live up to its potential in my opinion. And what's worse is that they released a partial game for full price with expectations to finish it as time goes by.

Just some nostalgic ramblings about my days at Scrub Radio, as an artist, listener, DJ and the webmaster, as well as the past days of Independent Music online.

There is a lot going around these days on Climate Change, the Environment, what we can do and if we even need to do anything in the first place. Here are a handful of my takes on some of this discussion.

I recently bought Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and after a few days of playing as much as possible, here are some initial impressions. They probably aren't quite on the favorable side, unfortunately.

The third entry in the Terminator franchise gets an enormous amount of hate, and while I can't go so far as to say it's a great movie, I do think it's underrated overall.

Star Trek: Insurrection is one of the lowest rated Star Trek movies out there. There are a lot of criticisms of it, but are those criticisms fair? The ones I can think of, that I have heard, aren't in my opinion.

By: R.P. Lauer - 10/11/2019 2:33 PM empty starempty starempty starempty starempty star
Going to the movie theater use to be an exciting event, something absolutely unmatched by any tradition means; having the choice to watch a movie on the big screen or at home, there was no choice. Sadly (I think), this is no longer the case for me, and this is why.

A classic GameBoy game gets a fresh coat of paint for a new generation. How does it hold up? You're going to hate me, but I have to be honest here...

Are video games too difficult? Should all video games have an 'Easy Mode'? Or should people just 'git gud'? I can't believe this is even a discussion...

My Time At Portia is filled with glitches and an overdose of grinding, but over all it's still a fun 'Life Sim' game in the vein of Stardew Valley.

Marvel's latest film, Avengers: Endgame, is a movie event 11 years and 22 films in the making. I am not a critic, and I will not be spoiling anything (or at least I will try not to), so this cannot be a 'review'. Instead, it will be mostly some general impressions for this milestone event.

The subject of the failures of the Wii U have been beat into the ground. However, there are a handful of aspects that I don't *think* have been given enough (if any) real attention. These are those aspects. (dun dun)

In this sequel, the title character breaks away from the video games that made him famous and focuses on the Internet, and hijinks ensue. But does it work?
