Hands-On: Splatoon

At PAX East 2015, I was able to get a little hands-on time with the upcoming Wii U shooter Splatoon at the Nintendo booth, but this week I was able to get some more personal time with the game at a special media event in New York City.

With Konami’s cancellation of Silent Hills, I was inspired to look back over the history of the Silent Hill franchise and reminisce about my favorite (and not so favorite) games in the series. Come along with me on this fog-shrouded trip down Memory Lane!

Wootini’s Weekly Animal Crossing Diary

Dear Diary,

It was a pretty uneventful week, really, even though there was technically a holiday. Just one major moment of drama (and I’m not even talking about Shari being upset that her favorite magazine, Big-Top Shrimp Risotto, had been canceled)… read on and I’ll cover the whole adventure!
