Sorry for being gone...BUT I'M BACK!!!

Hello, my gamer geek lovelies! Sorry for my absence, the darned holiday seasons have gotten hectic, but now back to gaming and motherhood! For Christmas, I got a Wii U and quite a few good games. For my Xbox 360, I got the Mass Effect Trilogy, KoA: The Reckoning, The Witcher 2, Dragon's Dogma, Dance Central 3, & Just Dance 4...So needless to say, I am content with my gaming selection for the time being. As for the Wii U, the only game I gave at the moment is Nintendo Land...I rented Mario Bros U and ZombiU, both of which are excellent! I intend to buy them as soon as our funds allow :3 Still writing for, but aside from being staff writer, I am now in charge of graphic design as well. All I can hope for is that it will all lead me to where I want to be career-wise.

 To keep up with the Geek mom and all the awesomness:

Random Ramblings of a Gamer-Geek

So good news, good news...My work as a writer/blogger is getting recognized finally. I'm working for an awesome gaming site called I'm one of the main article writers, and here pretty soon, I'll also be in charge of graphic design as well. Good things to come, people! Now, I promise to keep up on here as much as is possible, but just so you know, coming soon I will have my very own section of the site for blogging and personal experience as a gamer. I look forward to all the possibilities that this could bring me. Perhaps one day I will work for one of the major gaming companies, if I'd only be so lucky *Little heart shapes glaze over my eyes* dream is to work for Nintendo America...but that is a biiiiiiig dream. Hey, anything is possible, right? Ok, enough about my career aspirations...ON TO GAMING! Just recently got my hands on some Microsoft points, and spent them today. I downloaded the arcade game AMY. I've yet to play it, but once I do, expect a review in the near future. And furthermore I downloaded the Hearthfire DLC for Skyrim...I greatly look forward to testing that one out, even though I heard it was extremely tedious to create for yourself a home. But anywho, reviews coming soon for both of those. Until then, my gamer-geeks...Peace, Love, and Video Games <3

Playing Through tLoZ: Majora's Mask All Over Again Pt. 1

 So recently I've decided to play through The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask all over again. The last time I played through the game and completed it, I was about 12 or 13 years old, and now I'm 25. Just recently I downloaded the game onto my Wii purchased with points I earned from the Nintendo Club. I started a game on it a few days back, and I was flooded with memories from my previous play-through. But I was shocked to realize that there were many things I had forgotten. So it's like I'm playing anew all over again!
 The beginning was fairly easy. You're stuck in the town as a Deku scrub until you can pass various trials to leave the town. And from there, you're off to the Southern Swamp to conquer the first main temple. There you have to clear an innocent monkey's name, who was accused of kidnapping the Deku Princess. Upon completing the swamp level, you save the Princess.
 I just recently completed the mountain area, where you meet the Gorons and take on the role of their local hero, Darmani. Now, that level I had completely forgotten how to play. It had been so long, I didn't remember most of it at all. I'm not going to lie, it took me a while to finish that level...I just went in circles over and over again, until finally I figured it all out. Once I figured it out, it was like a face-palm moment... It was like "Well...duh...of coarse THAT was what I was supposed to do!!!"
 The place I left off on was recovering my horse, Epona, from Romani Ranch, and now it's off to the ocean, to complete that stage all within a matter of three days. I had forgotten how nerve-racking the whole "Three Days" was. Luckily, I remembered that if you play the Song of Time backwards, it slows the current flow of time. A very handy tool in this game.
 I have come across a few people that didn't really care for this game out of all the Legend of Zelda games, but personally, I enjoy it. It's so challenging, and difficult, it has a totally other element that the other games don't have: A time frame of 72 hours to complete certain tasks. Brilliant.
 This is part one of a series of blogs about my 'Re-journey' through this game. As I play through so far, I'll create another blog. Peace, Love, & Video Games, all! <3

Gamer Mom Probs

 I'm feeling the itch to game as of late. Hopefully I can satisfy this need soon. Having two little ones makes it extremely hard to play a video game.
 When I play a video game, I have to submerse myself completely in whatever universe I may be playing in at that moment. Maybe I need to start waking up earlier in order to be able to get some gaming in before the kids wake up, hahaha! In all seriousness though...I need to game! I feel like a drug addict going through's sad, and almost...pathetic ;_;.
 I need to finish Skyrim...I need to finish Skyward Sword...there are so many I NEED to finish...

 One day...

Well, gamer-rant over...Expect a blog coming up for my trip to Dallas, Tx Comic Con Fan Days!!! :D

Another day in the life of me

What a chill day today. Worked on the computer for a while, while enjoying a delicious cup of coffee. I managed to create and edit my profile for the website I'm going to begin working on. Recently, I was recruited to write for the gamer website, The creator of the site found my blog posts on (copies of the same blogs I post on here), and liked how I write and represent gaming. I'm happy to say I'm working for this site. It's a good site, lots of info and reviews to the popular games out there. Hopefully from here I can gain industry experience, because it's my dream to one day work for a major gaming site and/or magazine, or even one of the major gaming labels or companies (Nintendo is my goal, but that's a long shot) So wish me luck readers...just know, with hard work, you can accomplish anything!
Peace, love & video games!

San Japan Review

So came home from San Japan yesterday...SO MUCH FUN! I had forgotten how much I enjoy a good anime convention. Great cosplays, lots of activities, it was great! This particular convention was held in San Antonio Texas at the hotel, the Grand Hyatt. The hotel was great, offering discounts on rooms to those there attending the con. For the most part staff was good, though, there were a few that were rather rude and I would've liked to slap if given the chance >:[ Anyway, back to the cosplays! Some of the best cosplays I've seen in a while. Gave me the boost I needed to want to get back into cosplaying more than what I am. I've already planned out a few that I'd like to work on in the future for future cons I will be attending. The rave was tons of fun! Awesome show put on by the DJ Arch-Angel and go-go dancers. All in all, awesome con, I will def attend in the future :)

Green Tea & Zelda!

So today I'm thinking of attempting my Zelda gaming marathon once again. Thinking I'll play some more of A Link to the Past, then some Majora's Mask, Twilight Princess, and finally, the completion of Skyward Sword once my dear hubby comes home from work (because he wants to see the ending). So today will be a day of green tea drinking and infinite Zelda game-play, of course with the break every now and then to feed my precious babies <3 Today...will be a good day.
 And at the same time I feel the urge to forgo my Wii games, and cheat on it with my xbox360 and give some more of my life away to Skyrim. I could dwell in that world forever...BUT! Zelda needs my attention today...Link needs me to make him the Hero of Time all over again.

The day this far 8/4/12 (intro to Darksiders review)

Awe...the smell of coffee. It makes everything better. Cleaned up some, and took care of breakfast for the kiddies... I want to play Darksiders so bad, but having a baby who's under the weather some, and taking care of her is more important at this point. Perhaps once she lulls herself to a nap, I'll take advantage and continue my adventure as War, one of the four great Horsemen of the far, the game is incredible, better than I expected! Cannot wait to complete my awesome journey through this epic game...highly recommended. Once I complete it, I'll write a better review.

So...Anime, Anyone?

I love to watch anime. The worlds they create intrigue me, and run wild with imagination! It's always been a dream of mine to write or do animation for an anime company. To work for FUNimation has been my dream for quite some years now. I've been watching a lot more anime than usual as of late. All thanks to Netflix!!! Currently watching Fruits Basket, Spice and Wolf, and High School of the Dead. Each one VERY different, each one incredibly awesome. I've been contemplating watching Deadman Wonderland, but still iffy on it. And most likely I will watch SoulEater in it's entirety for the 3rd time...I just love that anime so much!

Skyrim/DawnGuard review

   Skyrim…? SKYRIM!!! First off, Bethesda, being the incredible company that it is, has graced us with their presence in the past with many great games. One of my personal favorite series of games from them being the Elder Scrolls. I've played a few of the previous games, Oblivion being one of them, but by far, Skyrim is my favorite. When I feel like taking a break, just merely walking around in the game, taking in the breath-taking landscapes in the game are enough to let me escape from the ‘real world‘ for a few moments, and submerge me into the great world known as Skyrim.
   Just recently I downloaded DawnGuard, the first of the downloadable content to be released for the game. I’ve began the mission, and so far, I am not disappointed! Best Microsoft points I’ve spent. It adds a whole other story line, and it is a great one at that. Though I am not completely finished with the mission, I am in awe over it.
   In this new mission, you are introduced to a different species of vampires, that are a lot stronger than the regular vamps you’ve faced in the past on Skyrim. They are ruled by the vampire lord, Harkon. It’s his passion to see the world shrouded in eternal darkness. And come to find out, that can be accomplished by his obtaining certain Elder Scrolls. First, you will meet the DawnGuard, the small group of  people in Skyrim that are out to stop Harkon from having his dream of eclipsing the sun forever come true. They give you a mission that leads you finally to Harkon, the vampire lord. Upon first meeting Harkon, you are faced with the choice to become a vampire lord like him, or face his wrath if you choose to stay in alligance with the dawnguard. I myself chose to become a vampire lord, and let me tell you, it is fun! Hovering above the ground, resurrecting the dead to serve under you, and feeding off the living, what more could a fan of vampires ask for?
    Later on you discover a whole new side of Skyrim, the Soul Cairn. Think of it as the underworld of Skyrim, where all souls retreat after they’ve met their demise. The world itself is beautiful in a cryptic and dark way, but nonetheless, still quite beautiful. And if you can find them, you come across a few side missions while in the Soul Cairn. One in particular that upon completing, you gain a new conjuration, a skeletal horse, engulfed in blue flames named Arvak. You can summon him at anytime, and upon doing so, you have a new means of traveling across the vast land. It’s a lot faster than traveling by foot. Now, if you’ve just recently purchased this game, and haven’t leveled up too much, keep in mind that even though you’ve downloaded the DawnGuard expansion, you cannot begin the mission till you’ve reached at least a level 10.
   And that’s that. Skyrim is a great game for those who love a good time-consuming rpg, The graphics, the story, the gameplay…all of it is enjoyable for most gamers. I’d highly recommend this game to any adventure/rpg gamer who wishes for a game that upon total completion, will take about 150-300 hours. Hour of your life, well spent.

The Legend of Zelda

Greatest series from Nintendo in my opinion. A game I grew up with, and feel it grew up with me. There's never been another series that's had the impact TLoZ has had on me. I've played all the games from the series, except the the Philip's CDi ones (which pretty much all Zelda fans hardly recognize as actual TLoZ games). To pick a favorite would be like picking a favorite child: You just can't choose. It feels wrong to have to choose! Most challenging I would have to say goes to Majora's mask. Given the fact of having to complete all these things in three days is quite nerve-racking...but oh so much fun. Most memorable would have to be Ocarina of Time. Incredible story, such depth and beauty. And each level more challenging than the last. Brilliant. And a lot of people didn't care much for Wind Waker, but I thought it was quite charming. Regardless of the chartoon-ish like graphics, it was still a good game. Least favorites would have to be the ones created for the Nintendo DS, Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks. They had their moments, but not my two favorites from the series. And I cannot say enough about Twilight Princess...that game, to this day, I will play over and over again. Beautifully done, from graphics to storyline. Sounds strange to say,but that game truely impacted me greatly. I smile just thinking about playing it! I own it for both the Wii and the GameCube. Both formats great in my opinion. And last, but most certainly not least, Skyward Sword. I am in the final battle as we speak. The grandiose face-off against the evil Demise. This game is so fantastic, I almost cannot bring myself to finish it! I just don't ever want this adventure to end...tho I know it must be done sooner than not. I can't wait until the next TLoZ game is released, both for the WiiU, or the 3DS. Either way, I'm getting them all! And the WiiU is as good as mine by next year *fingers crossed*. So, my gamer-dears...what is YOUR favorite TLoZ game?? Which one meant the most to YOU?? Which had the best story/graphics/etc?? Please share, I am all ears. /)^3^(\

Gaming Mom 01

I love gaming...tho, as of late,  it's hard to stay true to my gamer-ness...Being a mother, it's EXTREMELY hard to game like I used to :( When I play a game, I have to submerge myself into it completely, 100%. It needs my undivided attention in order for me to totally enjoy my gaming experience. Have a newborn and a toddler makes it hard... Love my girls to pieces, but miss the good ol' gaming days. The days of NO responsibility, just pure, 100% gaming! Can't wait for my girls to be old enough, then they can just game with me :) Well, something to look forward to anyways!
