The Way I See It: Super Mario 3D World

The Way I See It is a category of pieces that represent my personal opinions or reasoning on subjects I enjoy or have a lot to say about. Though at times the write-ups may be built on well-researched and verified information, as a general statement, I do not speak with absolute authority on any given matter covered. Thank you for your time.

So for the first one of these, I wanted to talk about Super Mario 3D World, a game in the Super Mario series released back in 2013 on the Wii U. More specifically, I wanted to address a topic that I've seen come and go often on forums and discussions in the Mario fan-base:

Is Super Mario 3D World a true 3D Mario game?

The Nintendo Switch: My Initial Thoughts and Analysis

About two months ago, on Friday, October 20th, Nintendo released a sneak-peek reveal (which you can watch here) of their upcoming game console, formerly known as codename NX. This new hardware is the Nintendo Switch, a console-handheld hybrid thats meant to provide a new experience by bridging the gap between those two worlds.

I thought that this was an incredibly interesting reveal, not to mention the unprecedented timing and lead-up thats had a lot of folks in the gaming community on their toes for months. The whole things been so exciting, in fact, that I wanted to write up my thoughts and observations of what weve seen so far. The contents of this post are sort of a work in progress because theres a lot to break down and consider, so Ill be coming back to it and adding more if and when something comes to mind.

Picture Me This

Here's a little thing I put together a year or so ago for people that enjoy writing. I haven't gotten to try it out much in my circle of friends, but I figure there are some folk out there that might want to take a crack at it.

So I've come up with this simple exercise to help me get back on-track with creative writing. After a while, I’d started toying around with how it could work in a more collaborative environment, and it’s become a game that I think is both fun to play and a useful way to get your creative and interpretive juices flowing before taking on a project, or even to come up with a project.

The game is called Picture Me This.

My Favorite Animated Films

Hello again!

I've recently decided to return to public writing again. Or at least as publicly as this page can be considered to allow. 

I don't have anything particular these days to share that isn't private creative work or analytical write-ups, but I'll figure things out one day at a time.

Today, I've decided to build a list of my favorite animated films. The following is in no particular order, and the only qualifiers are that the films stood out to me in a way that makes them memorable and that I can enjoy them on repeat viewings.
