Bad Games That Should Have Been Great: Pokemon Battle Revolution

If there’s one thing I love, it’s Pokemon. The series, despite doing its best to stagnate, is just as good as it’s always been. However, there’s one place that it’s still lacking entirely: A real Pokemon game on a major console rather than a handheld. We’ve got a few tries, such as Pokemon Stadium 1 […]

Let’s Think Deep: Books and Games

Escapism. Through whatever medium we use, we are all searching for that elusive experience that takes us elsewhere; that state of mind in which we aren’t concerned about our money problems, our painful lack (or disturbing presence) of a significant other, or whatever war or natural disaster is happening in whatever part of the world.

Let’s Think Deep: Nintendo Explained By a Lifelong Fanboy

Today is a special occasion for me here at Toy-Too Much Awesome. Today is my 300th post (according to my backend stats), so I wanted to celebrate by writing something very near to me as both an interest and part of my identity. For my last milestone I talked all about my greatest Pokemon accomplishments […]

Bad Games That Should Have Been Great: Metroid: Other M

Ten Aspects of Otherwise Good Games That Bring Them Down

I watch a fair number of video game-related videos during the course of my week, but one that stands out to me is Extra Credits over at The Escapist. A few weeks ago, the Extra Credits team (Daniel, James, and Allison), have been discussing how best to play games with a developer’s mindset firmly in […]

Let’s Think Deep: The Mind of a Fanboy

Why haven’t I Thought Deep for a while? I’m not really sure. I might as well fix that by diving into a topic I’ve mentioned before: Fanboyism (or Fangirlism, but it’s easier to write “fanboy,” so just replace the gender pronouns to enjoy the article more if that’d otherwise be a deal-breaker). What makes someone […]

Bad Games That Should Have Been Great: Turtles in Time: Re-Shelled

How could I enter 2011 without digging deep into my favorite topic, Ninja Turtles? I couldn’t. And beyond that, how could I not start with a rant about something that just plain ticked me off? I love rants, I love Ninja Turtles, but I certainly don’t love Turtles in Time: Re-Shelled. Reason being? It’s awful, […]
