Site News: Some thoughts

Hi all, I’m going to be honest — I’ve been super busy with work lately and I don’t have a whole lot of creative energy to expend on games writing right now. It’s unfortunate because I enjoy doing it, but that’s the thing that has given in these stressful weeks. I love my job, don’t…

Opinions: My Personal Examination into Video Games and Gender!

I missed posting yesterday, thus ending a successful streak of content where I praised many of the women who have touched my life in games, music and beyond. To make some mild amends for that, I’d like to take a moment to spotlight some pre-existing content I have done regarding women in video games over…

Site News: Women’s History Month

Hi all, For the month of March LVLS and Visuals will be running daily content! Here I will be putting up an article relating to women who matter to me in some way; these can be additions to my Women Composer series, Music posts about women bands or performer, discussions about women in the industry…

Happy Holidays from LVLS

It’s that time of year again, so I want to spend a moment of today wishing all of my readers a lovely holiday season. I hope it is peaceful, merry and bright!

Site News: Rebound

Hi all, After a forced hiatus due to the demise of my old laptop, I think I’ve properly recovered. I have a brand new laptop designed for gaming (so I’m hoping it will hold out more than three years…), and an external disc drive resolved other logistical issues…so we’re back! I need to test out…

Site News: Back to Business

Hello all, The fire has settled itself further away from my home, so I’m ending the hiatus period for all of my sites. The Camp Fire has devastated where I live. The town of Paradise is effectively razed. Thousands have lost their homes and are currently living with other family or friends, in shelters, in…

Site News: A (Slight) Design Overhaul

I’ve been using the same look for LVLS for…most of its current iteration at this point? Since I am battling some sort of illness (woo…XD ) I took some time today to reconsider its style, but what can I say, Dyad is a great fit for the content I produce here. So I did change…

Site News: The Belmont Chronicles

With the Smash Bros. Ultimate reveal of Simon and Richter Belmont, one thing has become clear on my (MANY) repeated viewings of reactions to the Direct — a depressing number of people who watched the show and taped their live responses were hyped for Simon, but didn’t really know much about him, his games, or…

Site News: LVLS is 17 years old today!

Hey friends! Hard to believe that I’ve hit the 17 year milestone with my online presence as of today! Unfortunately I am reeling from the ample smoke from California’s insane blitz of fires, so I am not feeling too up to drawing, writing or much else today. 😦 So I may port over some more…

Site News: E3

As the banner change and the earlier article today may suggest, it’s E3 time! So LVLS will be focusing entirely on the show and writing about what catches my attention over the rest of the week. With that in mind, I’ll be giving a small break to the Composer series tomorrow to focus on whatever…
