    Why I Quit ‘League of Legends’

    When it comes to mental health, you really shouldn’t mess around. Playing League of Legends is the biggest waste of time ever known to man. I think a lot of eSports gamers and fans start in the community by aspiring to be in the Pro Leagues – they spend hours upon hours invested in this game (and there are others: Dota2, Overwatch, Fortnite) only to end up resenting the community, quitting, and coming back again; it’s a vicious cycle and I’ve seen many succumb to it. Hell, I’ve met players that dropped out of college (in fact, someone I played with argued with his parents about going to college because…

    ‘Fire Emblem: Three Houses’ Hard Mode Clear

    At 59:16 hours of game play, I finally did it – I beat Edelgard’s story on hard mode classic in “Fire Emblem Three Houses” a month after the release. It took several tries (11, to be exact) but I managed to make it to the end without losing a single unit; recruits included. Note: let it be known that Nintendo quoted 80 hours of game play for each story! Overall, I learned a lot (I definitely should have recruited more while I had the chance.) I didn’t realize how important recruits were until it was too late. If you read a little further below, you’ll see that I ended up…

    I Purchased ‘Fire Emblem: Three Houses’ (…and boy am I impressed)

    “Fire Emblem: Three Houses” has launched on Switch, and to the surprise of many, it’s pulling in very, very good reviews (with an OpenCritic score of 88), with many praising it as a big leap forward for the series. I’ve played games in the franchise since “Fire Emblem” was released on the GameBody (remember Eliwood, Lin, and Hector?) and I gotta say, this game has came a long way. I had just about lost hope when I picked up “Fire Emblem: Awakening” (“Fates” was awful, too) and several fans will agree that this is the best game thus far (well, besides the classics, anyway). First things first, I delved in to…

    About Moonie

    I’ve never been the person to talk about myself but here goes! My earliest memories of video games was in elementary school – all of the cool kids had one of the very first Game Boys and I was jealous. They would sit together during lunch breaks and play Pokemon and I would sigh and whine and go home every night wishing I just had a Game Boy. Life would be so much better if I had a Game Boy. Remember when you were a kid and the week before summer break absolutely nothing happened at school? The teachers would try their best to get a roll call in the…

    body:before {content: “Hello World”; }

    I love playing video games. I also love writing and learning to code; that’s when I started pursuing careers outside of my Paralegal position. After I started streaming with my static group in Final Fantasy XIV, I started filing out applications for jobs in the programming/technical writing field, but I quickly realized I needed something more than just a resume in order to beat the competition. I wanted to write again and blogging allows me to dabble in code, so, here we are – the best of both worlds! On this blog you will see video game reviews, ranting about Final Fantasy XIV, some Twitch streams, and even some insights…
