Official reviews of things that could reasonably be reviewed.

TL;DR: this is a video game

So yesterday Pokémon UNITE was released and I got a few good rounds in… and I’m kinda… meh about it. I doubt that’ll be a surprise to anyone because, well, let’s be honest: Pokémon UNITE has a bit of a frosty reception in the gaming community. Why? Well, as PA!

Muh muh muh muh muh something something ummm CONGRATULATIONS

If I’m gonna trash this concert for anything, it was for ending too soon, just right as I was really getting into it! Oh, and also switching the original stream to private right in the middle of people: I was watching the Post Malone Pokemon thing and it went private half way through. pic.twitter.com/aqmxeYHsWw — […]


Did you see this yet?! Of course you did! What Pokémon fan didn't know about this until 8 hours after its initial release?

I’ve got a few things to say about that, but I’ll share that later when I’ve gathered my thoughts about this some more. Another thing I’d like to cover is the Galar alphabet, which I find super interesting… […]


(I decided to split my “Thoughts and Review” post into two. Read “Part 1” if you want to read my opinions on why I’m not worried for the future of the Pokémon series.) As mentioned in Part 1, a lot of the arguments against this game are mostly done out of fear and not with a level […]
