I'm hosting another Q&A and Survey! (TTHT Blog's 5-Year Anniversary)

Hello, ogres! I know that the last few months, and even years, have been very strange for my blog. So I'm sure you've got plenty of questions about it all. But, a very important day is arriving in a few weeks: The five-year anniversary of my Blogger blog, on August 28! To commemorate and celebrate this landmark occasion, I'm going to do something I haven't done in two years, which is to host a Q&A form where you can ask me anything you want!

You can ask me about blogging in general, the future of my blog, my personal goals and interests, or any other friendly question you'd like to ask. How do you ask me questions? Well, you can use the Google Form I will give a link to below or the comments section to this post.

The form is open from today, Thursday, August 8th, to Saturday, August 24. That means you've got about 3 weeks to ask me as much as you want, about anything you want! So what are you waiting for? Go and ask up so I can answer up. If my last Q&…

NEWS ROUNDUP: New Switch Revision for 2019 Announced, Lawsuit Over Joy-Con Drift, New Joy-Con colors, the end of Splatoon 2, SDCC 2019, Moon Landing Anniversary, and MORE!

News. *clap* Review. *clap*. What is up, fellow ogres? I haven't posted very frequently recently because of summer camp taking up much more time than I initially expected (hey, that wasn't in the job description), but that's actually a positive thing. Why? That means I have more important news to talk about and catch you guys up on, and then proceed to babble on about it for 12 pages!-- Just kidding. While there may not be a TL;DR included for this post due to the fact that it covers so many topics at once, I have attempted my best to make each individual section as short as possible, like a TL;DR in it of itself. You're welcome. Now, without further ado, let's Naruto Run straight into this news! We're starting off with an announcement that seems perfect after the Switch Lite last week... 

New Switch Model Announced! But is it a worthy upgrade?

On Wednesday, Nintendo announced via their Japanese website that a new Nintendo Switch model set to replace the curren…

Nintendo Switch Lite announcement EXPLAINED

Image Credit: Nintendo

So two days ago, I woke up bleary-eyed and bored. So I opened up my phone and scrolled aimlessly through my notifications page. And the first thing I found would have had me do a double-take had I been sipping coffee or water at the moment—-Nintendo had just uploaded a reveal trailer for something called the “Nintendo Switch Lite” ten minutes ago from when I had boarded the bus.I couldn’t believe my eyes that this had been announced while I was eating an egg sandwich merely minutes ago, and almost hesitated to even click the video in case it was joke-clickbait from IGN. But this “Switch Mini” was no surprise at all. It was perhaps Nintendo’s worst kept secret for a year up to that point. For several months, industry rumors and even third-party accessory listings pointed to two new Nintendo Switch models for release in 2019. One, an upgraded model like how Nintendo did for the New 3DS XL from the regular 3DS. This model would be somewhat of a “Switch Pro”, an inc…

Turks and Caicos Islands Mini-Vlog!

The skies are blue, the birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, and all the 12-year-old boys in America have secluded themselves indoors from dawn to dusk playing Fortnite... I'm no expert meteorologist, but I'm pretty sure that means that summer is here at last! Of course, the end of school and my graduation from middle school wasn't extremely recent; it only happened two weeks ago. The first week after summer, I was on vacation in the beautiful Turks and Caicos Islands!

We stayed in the Turks and Caicos for about a week, and since we're Turkish" I guess you could call us the "Turks in the Caicos". (ba-dum-tiss!) But about that name, in case you're wondering; Turks and Caicos doesn't have to do with the nation of Turkey. Rather, after doing some research, I can confirm that it has to do with a cactus. Let me explain.

Some of the plants native to the island include the cactus. One of these cactuses has a cylindrical red flower on top, which…

Nintendo Direct E3 2019- What to Expect (and not)

It's the most wonderful time of the year.... With the gamers all playing and everyone telling you to ride the hype train... It's the most wonderful time of the year! It's the hype-hypiest season of all. With those leaks and rumors and speculative rambling when E3 comes by... It's the most wonderful time of the year! There'll be predictions to make and leaks to debunk and expectations to set... And tales of those failed E3's long, long ago... It's the most wonderful time of the year! 
Oh, wait, are you guys reading this right now? Oh, sorry for my singing. It's just that I tend to get very festive this time of the year. *Ahem*. Where was I? Oh yeah, E3 2019 is finally here! The Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3 for short, is the annual gaming convention and press conference where gaming studios and developers take the curtains off from some of their biggest game and console projects and announcements for the public! It's no boring selection of key…
