Game Side Chats: Shining Soul (GBA)

Boy oh girl, do I love that SHINING series! I JUST spent a sizable load of my hard earned cash on a mere disc that convinces my GameCube to load an emulator that will play my Game Boy games on the console! I have been WANTING that disc for a couple of years now but the price was climbing HIGHER and HIGHER! No one wants to pay $70, $80, dare I say $NINETY for a single little disc that isn’t even a game.

Game Side Chats: Xena Warrior Princess: Talisman of Fate (N64)

I always thought this game was a weird tie-in to a TNT action drama that would be extremely under budgeted, janky as hell, and not really necessary. I wasn’t wrong, but I must say… it’s not that bad. My curiosity was piqued when scrolling through a list of N64 games, I saw this one listed under the fighting game genre. Fighting game? I didn’t know this was a fighting game. I had imagined an action-adventure Ocarina of Time wannabe where a polygonal Lucy Lawless runs around a forest stabbing rabbid goblins with her giant sword.

I also never actually watched the show.
