Announcing this a bit late, oops. But here we go. In addition to my Ko-Fi, I've recently set up a Patreon for anyone who wants to support me that way. It's right here! Patrons get access to sneak peeks of stories, and early access to pieces of flash fiction I'm posting exclusively on Patreon. If … Continue reading Announcement: I’ve Got A Patreon!
Kinda obligatory. Two out of five, but this post is technically a double feature because I felt like it. Sonic the Hedgehog 3. A classic game with a classic soundtrack. Ice Cap Zone is exciting as all Sonic levels should be, and also absolutely gorgeous. One of my favorite levels in any Sonic game, even … Continue reading Winter Video Game Music: Ice Cap Zone Act 1 and 2 (Sonic the Hedgehog 3)
It's Christmas Day where I live and so I think this is a good time for me to start a new series. Wanted to start this sooner, but stuff came up.

Won't that be nice? ...Anyone? Metroid Fusion is a pretty creepy game, all … Continue reading Moving Video Game Music: Underwater Depths (Metroid Fusion)
Well this isn't my follow-up to my last post, but college got in the way and now that it's over with, I'd like to finish my Moving Video Game Music set before I continue with that and whatever else comes to mind. So, three out of five. Anyhow. Sword of the Stars. I love this … Continue reading Moving Video Game Music: Main Menu Theme (Sword of the Stars)
So as of this year I've become very interested in the history of video games, their cultural impact, how culture impacts them, how they impacted my life as a storm dragon who loves the darn things, and other stuff. I'd like to thank channels such as Gaming Historian and Games as Literature for helping me … Continue reading Storm Dragon Rambles: The Last Great Era (?) of Video Games and the Future Ahead
So I went radio silent without so much as saying goodbye, so my apologies for that. Anyway, November was... certainly a month. A fun month, but also an incredibly frustrating one. When I first came up with the idea for N I G H T W A V E S, it was envisioned as a … Continue reading NaNoWriMo Musings: N I G H T W A V E S Ends
