It's time to run down Nostalgia Lane.

Three Video Games that Deserve to be Remastered

If you're a Millennial like me, you have a strong sense of nostalgia for certain things: cartoons, toys, books, movies, certain shows, video games, et cetera. So when the news came out that Crash Bandicoot was making a comeback in an updated form for the PS4, fans were excited and ready to play; it did not disappoint when it arrived on June 30, 2017 as it has kept all the familiarity that fans grew up with (lives, the boxes, the characters, the moveset, and more), and even the critics gave the trilogy two thumbs up.

I've been playing through the first game in the trilogy and it is a delightful (and at times frustratingly difficult) stroll down memory lane. However, there are a few other games I hope companies consider remastering, and they are as follows:

1. Spyro

Crash Bandicoot and Spyro were some of the most common characters one would see in the video game world some ten years ago, so here Spyro is on this list. This purple dragon is a fun little guy who could spit fire and we could easily follow; he also has a love of jewels and was raised by dragonflies. Sure, he's been kicking it around with the Skylander franchise, but he needs to stand on his own four paws again. If anyone should make a comeback, it's Spyro.

2. Harry Potter

A lot of the times you will find characters be converted over to a Lego series, such as the Marvel franchise and the Harry Potter universe; I am not talking about the Lego games here but instead the old school ones you'd play on PS2 or PC where you follow the events of the book/movie. You could create potions, or spells, or fight demons; it was all magical (pun intended). Just for some nostalgia, maybe consider bringing these series back?

3. Final Fantasy VIII

Okay, so maybe it's because I'm a Kingdom Hearts fan but I want to revisit the stories of the Final Fantasy characters in their actual video games, and seeing as FF VII has already been brought to the PS4, it's time its successor was brought in as well so we can see Squall Leonhart. Cloud's story is a familiar one as he has the antagonist Sephiroth to fight against, so let's see Squall face against his enemy, shall we?! (And get the affections of Rinoa).

What are some video games that you'd like to see remastered and updated?

I Just Spent $300 On The New Xbox For My Boyfriend, And It Was Worth Every Penny

Happiness is important, and sometimes money helps, not gonna lie.


As everyone probably already knows, the new Xbox Series went live for preorder yesterday, and while they cost a good chunk of change, I bought one for my boyfriend. This would normally not be something I would have the extra money for, and to be honest, probably wouldn't want to buy, but I still ordered it.

There isn't one person the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hasn't affected. While COVID-19 is risking everyone's physical health, it's also destroying the world's economy and personal finances, weakening mental health, wreaking havoc on education... and, well, the list goes on.

Among the many things being impacted is love.

A Couple's Wedding In Peru Was Postponed By COVID-19, But A Lifetime Of Love Is Worth The Wait

During their first semester at Instituto de Empresa (IE Business School) while working on graduate degrees in Madrid, Spain, soon-to-be-newlyweds Rory and Gigi met when they were placed in a workgroup together — and the rest was history. Now, four years after their relationship began, the couple's fall plans to get married in Perú, where Gigi is originally from, have since been postponed by COVID-19.

Though things haven't always been easy for the pair because of immigration, starting a skincare business together, and now, canceling their dream wedding because of the pandemic, they have always worked together as a team (maybe we should all be in a workgroup with our future spouses).

A Bumble Couple's Wedding Was Canceled By COVID-19, But Nothing Could Come Between This Perfect Match

"The whole purpose of all the stress and time and tears was that we love each other and that was all that mattered."

Shortly after Kaihla's sister made her a dating profile on Bumble (despite her fear of being catfished), she matched with Shanna, and their chemistry was quickly undeniable. So much so that only a month and a half into dating, Shanna told her best friend "I think I'm going to marry her," and eventually, the nonprofit worker and elementary PE teacher duo proved this to be true.

In the fourth episode of a new docuseries called "Pandemic Weddings" by SoulPancake, the couple opens up about how they met, the difficulties of canceling a non-refundable wedding of their dreams (that took a year and a half to plan), as well as the pain of having family members who didn't support their marriage use the pandemic as a convenient excuse not to come.

Bobbie Hall

This fall was my boyfriend and I's two-year anniversary! In the past for special occasions, we've typically gone out for a movie and dinner or just did something fun in general. However, in the year of COVID, we didn't really feel safe doing something like that.

Instead, we wanted to try something new that kept us significantly more socially distanced. Luckily, I found a TikTok trend a few months ago that gave me the perfect idea! The Target TikTok trend blew up all over for couples and friends alike. It seemed like a fun activity for us but also a good way to get each other gifts that we might not have thought about.

If there's one thing everyone's talking about right now, it's voting — in real life, on social media, and yes, even on dating apps.

And rightfully so! Because is there really anything sexier than someone who cares about using their voice to be the change they want to see? In my opinion, no... not much, honestly.
