Personal Connections Update #2

Standard

Hi again! I have another update for the series, though this one’s not as good. I know that I wanted Personal Connections to be a bi-weekly series, but unfortunately I won’t be able to adhere to that for the foreseeable future. Life has gotten very busy and stressful in the past few weeks, leaving me with barely anytime for myself. If I were to try and maintain the series as being bi-weekly for the time being, I wouldn’t be able to produce the posts I want at the quality that I want.

Writing these posts is something that I want to be able to enjoy and have fun doing. Writing them while also being stressed from the events of my day to day life will ultimately leave me feeling unhappy and not as invested in each piece, and that’s not what I want. So with that being said, my Sora piece will not be going live on Monday, April 19. For this, I sincerely apologize. I still intend to do it, but it will be coming at a later date. What that date is, I cannot say since I myself do not know. But rest assured that it will come.

The same goes for the rest of the series. I fully intend to write posts for all the games I have planned. I want to talk about them and share my love for them with you all. In fact, before I even wrote the first piece, I brainstormed what I wanted to talk about for the first 5-6 pieces. Those are all planned out already, so it’s just a matter of getting it on paper in a way that is honest and satisfactory to me. And even once I get past those, I’m going to do the rest of the games that I have in mind. It will just take more time than I first planned, and for that, I once again do deeply apologize.

I hope you all understand and still look forward to the pieces coming in the future. I think that they’ll all be worth the wait.

Hi all! Just giving a quick update on Personal Connections. Unfortunately my next piece won’t be up tomorrow as initially planned. The past week has been incredibly busy, leaving me with no time to actually work on it. Rather than try to cram it all in one day, I’m going to delay the piece by one week to Monday, April 19 so that I can actually have some time to work on it. I apologize for the delay and I appreciate your understanding. See you all soon!

Personal Connections: Kingdom Hearts II

Standard

15 years. That’s a long time for a person to love something. This is especially true if the love started during a person’s childhood. As kids we latch onto things all the time, bouncing from one interest to the next. But every now and then, something comes along and takes root in a child’s heart. It grows from something we like into something we love; and from something we love into something that we’re passionate about. Once it’s reached this point, it never lets go and plays a key role in making us the people we grow up to be.

The Last of Us Part II Review

Standard

By: Tyler Miller

Seven years ago, Naughty Dog released The Last of Us to critical acclaim. The story of Joel and Ellie and their cross country journey resonated with gamers from a gameplay standpoint and an emotional standpoint. It was a game that pushed the industry forward in more ways than one, so expectations for The Last of Us Part II were astronomical. Somehow, the team was able to create a sequel that is a step up from its predecessor in every way imaginable and blow me away yet again. Continue reading
