A Retrospective on Guild 01&02

Looking back on Level-5’s fun and weird 3DS compilation games

I’ve been in the mood for DS and 3DS games lately. I’ve got a lot of nostalgia for the handheld gaming era - I miss weird ports that try to condense down big console games, games that have really cool tech that makes you think how they managed that on weaker hardware, and I especially miss the smaller scale games with weird concepts which developers didn’t have to spend millions of dollars and years of development to make. So in my yearning of a bygone era, I decided to do a deep dive on the Guild games on 3DS, which I felt really embodied the weird small scale stuff we never see in the “mainstream” anymore.  Setting the scene

The Monthly Review, May and June '24

The skip was intentional this time, promise

Okay so elephant in the room - yeah it’s another double month Monthly Review. But I actually meant to do it this time around! At the end of May, I didn’t really have anything I wanted to talk about except one album. On the gaming side of things, I had spent my time replaying long-ish games (Fallout: New Vegas and Digimon World DS) and movie wise, nothing felt right for a more longer form review that I didn’t cover on my Letterboxd account. So I decided to do another double month feature! I hope you enjoy the Maune Monthly Review!

Top 5 Reasons Why I Write

The sincerity of number 4 will SHOCK you!

That’s right, I’m not above clickbait titles. There’s not even a reason for me to do it - I don’t run ads, I don’t track impressions, I don’t even have a late 90s/early 2000s visitor count. I’m doing clickbait for the love of the game, for the respect of the hustle.

The Monthly Review, March and April '24

It's still monthly, it just took more months than usual this time

Like a bolt from the blue, it’s time for The Monthly Review! I’ve been in a bit of a writer’s slump lately so I didn’t do one last month, so instead we’re just going to treat March and April as one big month. We can call it Marpril or Aprich, whichever sounds most appealing to you. Some of the reviews are longer this time around, which I hope makes up for brief hiatus.

The Monthly Review, February '24

If it takes 2 months to form a habit, does this count as one now?

Like a bolt from the blue, it’s time for The Monthly Review! Despite it being the shortest month, I’m still writing a full length article! If that’s not dedication, I don’t know what is. I nearly didn’t have a movie I wanted to talk about this time, which got me thinking about changing up the format for this. It’s the same this time, but who knows, maybe I’ll be writing about a TV show next time?
