8 Scary Settings That Would Be Cool In Zelda

Last night I wrote up a simple article for the article post today. I’m actually hoping to crack down on some of the articles that have been submitted to us, but I had to write this first because, well, time was up. Writing this was hell for once because I was dead tired and unable to concentrate much, so I had to go to sleep and make it actually good in the morning (for which I had some help). Either way I think it turned out decently though. Exactly as the name says: A bunch of ideas for Zelda’s frequent scary locations. You can read it here. Enjoy!

My Top 10 Resident Evil Monsters

One thing I’ve always loved about the Resident Evil series is its monsters. I love monsters in general, so when I first played the original Resident Evil I was sad that it seemed like it only had zombies, something I’ve never particularly regarded as a monster, or at least not my kind of monster… Of course, as it turns out, the original had plenty of other monsters once you got later in, and the rest of the series has continued to include great creatures throughout (and this is actually one thing the modern Resident Evil games haven’t particularly let up on).

These are my top ten favorite monsters of the Resident Evil series.

This won’t include anything from Resident Evil 6, but once I’ve played the game I may update the list if it’s needed. So here we go!

10 Childhood Cartoons I Wish I’d Seen More Of

Man, childhood. Those are the carefree years, where you don’t worry about getting a job, the state of the world, or even having arguments about religion on internet message boards. No these were the good old days when all you had to worry about was having television networks compete over your attention span with cartoons. Not that this was really something we worried about; it’s why life was great!

But for some of us, me especially, there were a lot of shows we never got to see all that much of because of a variety of reasons, including not having cable at the time. Sometimes I’d catch glimpses of shows I only dreamed I could watch more of when I stayed at someone else’s house, or stayed in a hotel. Don’t get me wrong, I saw plenty of shows as a kid, including Swat Kats, Batman: The Animated Series, Power Rangers, Digimon, and many others. Maybe it’s simply a “grass is greener on the other side” thing, but I always used to think the ones I never saw were so much cooler.

So in no particular order, here are 10 different shows I always wished I could see more of.
