An Update on My Creative Projects in 2021

Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am working on a bunch of creative projects in 2021, so I just wanted to share an update on how everything is going.

Here are some of the many creative projects I am working on in 2021.

Unboxing the Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light 30th Anniversary Edition

The day has come; Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light has finally been localized for a western audience. As a longtime Fire Emblem fan, I was ecstatic to hear it was finally releasing states-side on the Nintendo Switch. I knew I had to grab the 30th Anniversary special edition while I could. The second it was announced, I went online to pre-order it, but GameStop’s website wasn’t accepting pre-orders at the time. I sighed and stopped by my local store the next day, hoping by some miracle that I hadn’t missed my chance to pick up this unique piece of gaming history.
