GOODBYE, Google Plus.

Now, this post is very different, and also probably unexpected. But, I am legitimately begging all that look at this not to click away due to the date that I published it. That "April Fool's" garbage is a mere coincidence this time. While last year, I had the time to create an awesome collab joke story for it, this time, having been so busy recently and not posting an entire month for the second time in a row, that isn't the case. This post is serious, solemn. I'd dare say emotional... For me, at least.

Most kids my age wouldn't even blink at the mention of it. To them, the word "Google" means no more than that website that they get Fortnite V-Bucks generators and silly games to distract them in class from. Or, even worse, Google Classroom and hours of homework may have caused them to form a negative association with the term in their minds. But for me, my favorite tech company in the whole world (sorry Apple and Microsoft) brings up a variety of o…

NEWS TIME: Reggie Fils-Aimé Retiring (and getting replaced by Bowser) + Samsung Galaxy S10 Foldable Phone + Xbox Game Streaming coming to Switch!?!

This is Arca, and this will be a news roundup post about some interesting things that have occurred over the past few days. One of them is bittersweet, the other is super-cool, and the last is just a crazy industry rumor. Let's dive right in.

Goodbye, Reggie...



I have some very semi-sad news to share with you all today. The man you see in the photo above may be familiar to you. He changed the video game industry, spawned a massive internet meme, and steered Nintendo back into their pedestal of 21st Century Kings of Gaming. This man is named Reggie Fils-Aimé, and he is the President of Nintendo of America. Or, at least, he was... That's since he has officially announced his retirement.

Now, this is actually delightful news in many ways. He has already served the company for 15 years, became the CEO of the North American division, and has formed a very memorable relationship with fans. This guy must have worked countless hours trying to perfect marketing, pitch game ideas, and f…

RED Blog Redemption, RIP Google+, Pewdiepie, Nintendo Direct, & MORE!

Love is in the air... Actually, that's incorrect, according to my social studies calculator. You see, carbon dioxide, hydrogen, argon, and boron are in the air (sometimes). Also, the air is in the air.

Why am I making such a strange and different post like this? Well, in case you didn't know, one year ago, I decided to get particularly festive for St. Green Boi Week. I published a YouTube video (or a blog post, I forgot) titled "Green", which you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0

Have you read it yet? A very beautiful wallpaper, I know. But that's not the point of it! The point was to be as festive as possible. Now that it's sometime close to Watermelon Swine's Day (that was the name of the holiday about red heart-shaped candy, right?), I decided to do the same. I will spread as much Water-swine's Day cheer as possible!

Now, h…

SICKO BOWL + New Splatfest!

I only watch American football once a year. That's on Super Bowl Sunday. I am not super familiar with football, but I still find grown men giving each other brain damage to try to get touchdowns somewhat entertaining. However, I wasn't there for just the game, of course. I was there for all the "extra noise". But this year's Super Bowl simply felt... off.

Many people said that the game itself was boring and uneventful. I only watched half of it, but I do distinctly remember that at least an hour of it was spent without a single score. It remained zero-to-zero until the Boston Patriots got a three. I predicted they would win (I wasn't truly rooting for anyone, in particular, this year), and I was right. I woke up the next morning, and it was a victory of 13-to-3. So while they did beat the LA Rams, it probably wasn't a very exciting game. Only one touchdown was scored the entire time. Sure enough, it happened to be the lowest scoring Super Bowl in history…
