December 2021 in Summary: The Iceman Cometh

Donkey Kong Country 3 - Christmas

Happy New Year! So, 2021 has come to an end. I know a lot of people were disappointed in how it wasn’t the deliverance from 2020 they hoped it would be, but with the presence of vaccines and an absence of a potent COVID-19 variant that can completely dodge them, it was still better than 2020.

Well, if nothing else, 2021, like 2020, was a remarkably great year for music. Seriously, those artists have been firing on all cylinders lately. I was a bit skeptical about the whole vinyl revival, and while I do get the appeal, one undeniably positive impact it had on music is that it got artists to begin thinking about how to put their work in an album format. I find one’s body of work tends to be stronger and more cohesive if you can translate one’s talent to the album format.

I also apologize for the lack of reviews, but, I will have a review of Donkey Kong 64 ready to go for next week.

October 2021 in Summary: A Shot in the Arm

Sorry for the lack of content this month. I recently started a new job and haven’t really had much of an opportunity to work on any reviews as a result. In the meantime, and to give the title of this update post a second meaning, I also got a booster COVID shot as was recommended. I suggest anyone who can does likewise.

August 2021 in Summary: It’s on Like Donkey Kong!

Donkey Kong Country 2 - Haunted Hall

The release of a new Ace Attorney game is something I’m both excited for and slightly annoyed by. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great series, but it’s also filled to the brim with spoilers that I know that when a new installment comes out, I have to drop pretty much everything I’m doing to play it if I’m to experience it completely fresh, hence the low number of films I ended up watching this month.
