Smash’s Redemption Arc

Apologies for the hiatus, for I was busy with work and Astral Chain (great game btw, though it ended really abruptly). This article was meant to be made after Pyra and Mythra were released as our latest DLC fighters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and before the beginning of E3 2021, where everyone’s sure the …

Super Mario Splatfest

Well then, the announcement for Splatoon 3 came out of nowhere, and it’s coming out on the Switch instead of its eventual successor (some Nintendo titles such as Mario Kart come once every system). To celebrate, I’ll be going over my experience with the final FINAL splatfest of Splatoon 2, which is Mario-themed to celebrate …

Zelda’s Confusing Time Travel Shenanigans

Happy belated new year, everyone. Sorry for the lack of a new article last month, as I was busy trying to 100% Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, which was created to keep up the hype train for the sequel to Breath of the Wild. The game was advertised to be a prequel that takes 100 …

Splatoween Encore: Trick or Treat

Happy Friday the 13th, everyone. This article was suppose to be ready right after the Splatoween encore was over, but then work got in the way, so I didn’t have enough time to post it. Last month’s encore is Trick vs. Treat, and I’ve chosen Team Treat before because I love candy, so I’ve chosen …

Ultimate as part of Fighters Pass 2. His inclusion also marks the end of the war between Banjo fans …

Splatfest Encore: Chicken vs. Egg

Better late than never, here’s an overview retrospective of last month’s Splatfest encore, which is the never-ending debate on what came first: the chicken or the egg. If you’ve already studied evolution at your science class, then you would know the answer is objectively the egg, for it has existed long before the first chicken …

The War on Gaming

This is something that I have wanted to write about for a long time now. I’ve wanted to write this since before I started visiting Playeressence and before this site was even created. This is something that I know that I know I’m going to get shit on for endlessly, so if you disagree with …

The Hiroshi Yamauchi Rebuttal

“A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get it’s pants on.” – Winston Churchill After taking inspiration from a Razorfist video on Michael Jackson, I decided to write this article.
