There comes a time in everyone’s life when you sometimes have to admit to yourself you might have taken on more than you’re able to handle. Maybe you got too ambitious or you didn’t carefully plan everything out in your head. Whatever it may be, this is the situation I found myself in when I made the attempt to play and finish Saints Row IV.
I’ve always been a kid at heart and I doubt it’ll ever change the older I get. When there’s a good animated feature currently showing at my local movie theater, I’m not ashamed to express an interest in watching it and actually going to the movies to see it. The recent offerings from Disney––Frozen, Big Hero 6, and its latest film Zootopia, has gotten me excited about seeing more from the House of Mouse. It seems like Disney is investing in more stories with powerful messages that actually teaches kids something more meaningful, while still being the fun and colorful Disney films we tend to expect from their brand. Zootopia is no different in joining this lineup of great storytelling in a kid’s movie.
I don’t particularly make it obvious how much I love watching anime, read manga, or play video games in my daily fashion choices. It’s a sentiment I have written about before on this blog and on Geek Force Network when the site used to be active. While I may not always show my pride and passion for the leisure hobbies I like to pursue during my spare time, it doesn’t mean I haven’t found smaller ways to convey my enjoyment of them.
Ashley Hagood of Robo♥beat invited me to take part in a community post all about our favorite voice actors in video games. Check out who I chose as my favorites along with other bloggers’ favorites on her site!
Lately I’ve been wanting to write a post celebrating voice acting in video games. It’s a big topic I wasn’t sure how to broach, so I’ve brought in some of my fellow gamers and bloggers to share their favorite VO actors, performances, and moments. Please share yours in the comments too!

I’ve talked a lot about character customization in video games before, especially in the now disbanded Geek Force Network in two posts that still exist on the site. There’s no question about how much I love the chance to design my character the way I want them to look using the options game developers have created for the player to choose from. When I ordered my copy of the newest Fire Emblem game Birthright for the Nintendo 3DS, there was one tiny addition to their customization option that has made me unabashedly, deliriously in love with my playable character.
