Do you think that nowadays there are too many reboots and sequels to old games instead of new IP’s? Honestly, no. I am still wishing for a few reboots myself like Haunting Ground, Clock Tower 3, Rule of Rose, etc. I would buy them as is if they were ported over to the PS4. For real. So many games fell through the cracks that I either didn’t get to finish or really want to revisit.
Can the big studio’s like Nintendo, EA, Ubisoft… make indie games? Hmm… I’m not sure how to answer this one. To go with the definition of what an indie game is, it’s usually a game that doesn’t have the financial support of a publisher. I mean these big studios could publish them. I know sometimes they have smaller teams that work on indie games that they do in fact publish.
If one of the games you played in the past gets a HD remake, do you get excited? Would you play the remake? Yes and yes! Spyro is the best example of this. I was so excited to play Reignited, and it brought back so many good memories.
What do you do during a grinding session? Do you do something else while grinding for resources or characters or do you focus on the game? If I’m grinding, you can bet I have a blanket, a snack, and YouTube pulled up! If it’s a multiplayer game, I chat with friends to make the time go by faster. I find it hard to just game while grinding so multi-tasking is my go-to activity.
How do you take notes for your articles? Do you write them down on a piece of paper while playing the game? Do you record your gameplay and write down time stamps? It depends. If it’s for a game review, I usually revisit the game then immediately write up a draft. Over the week I’ll make tons of edits and add content until I’m happy with the overall post. If I have an idea for a post that’s not a review, I usually make a note, then add to a draft until I’m ready to finalize it.
What are your least favorite sections in gaming? Un-skippable cut-scenes, having to beat a boss over and over again, annoying sidekicks that die constantly, and babysitting other characters.
What is something unique/fun/interesting about your hometown and/or community? My husband and I are in a house currently that is nestled in the middle of four neighbors’ yards! we have a little driveway between the houses and most delivery drivers miss it. We also live super close to a community park where we like to take Padme for walk and battle at Pokemon gyms.
What’s your advice to new bloggers or even, experienced bloggers looking for advice? Join blogging communities! They are all over Facebook and Twitter. I have made new friends and gotten so much advice this way!
Can you answer this question with a wrong answer? One thing that works for one blogger may not work for another. I say it’s okay to try all kinds of thing until you find what works for you so I wouldn’t say there’s a wrong answer.
Do you sometimes look back at your old(er) articles and think, if I write another article about that today, it would be totally different? Yes! I really want to revisit some of those articles with the sate of mind that I have today. So much has changed; I have changed! I might attempt to revisit a few of my older articles just because of this question.
