Three Video Games that Deserve to be Remastered

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?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
