With the NFL season coming to a close after Super Bowl 53, I thought I'd lay down some bold takes for next season. I have a feeling that most of these won't come true, but one can hope, right?
A year after making the AFC Championship game, Jacksonville petered out to a 5-11 record, good for last in the AFC South. What can the Jaguars do to get back to the AFC Championship game and beyond?
The Super Bowl is this Sunday. That will mean a half hour dedicated to drawn-out ceremonies, a national anthem, and lengthy player introductions. It's become a regular motif for big sports events, but that's beside the point. We're here to talk about these two teams:
The rebuilding New York Giants may have finished 5-11 this year. However, they have found another exciting player on offense. What do they need to do to continue moving forward?
Every year, millions of Americans get ready for one date and, no, it is not Christmas or Thanksgiving. It's the Super Bowl. This big event is celebrated with lots of food, a marquee halftime performance, and two of the best teams in the NFL. Here's a lowdown on what this big event is about for non-NFL fans.
The Super Bowl match-up for this year may be set in stone. However, that does not mean that the following teams can't sulk with a bright future ahead. Which teams can make the Super Bowl next season with the right moves?
On the other side in the Super Bowl are... the New England Patriots. The Patriots made their third straight Super Bowl behind the likes of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. Here's what you need to know about the New England Patriots.
In this installment of Nostalgia Game Review, I'm going to review another game in a series I've never tried before: Castlevania. It takes Simon Belmont on a journey to abolish Dracula and his castle for good. Along the way, he collects sub-weapons and fights monsters such as Frankenstein, mummies, and Medusa. Simon also collects hearts to fuel his sub-weapons and wall meat (you read that right) to fuel his health.
The premiere game of the series was quite fun, packing a variety of sub-weapons to use and enemies to fight. They range from a cross that acts as a boomerang to holy water that can stun enemies and bosses (it is very helpful in this game). The game is also challenging, which is a hallmark among Konami games. This is especially true when you get to Dracula himself and his second form. The game will truly test everything you got, leaving you cussing like a sailor. The gothic feel of this game gives it that perfect feel of classical horror, which is apparent in the boss music.
There are some gripes that I have with this game. One, there are certain things you can't do in this game (which has been mentioned in the Nintendo Life review of Castlevania). For example, you can only whip from the front and you can only climb up the stairs by pressing up. Granted, that isn't a bad thing in some cases. However, not pressing up to climb the stairs can lead you to aimlessly wander off the ledge to your death. You also cannot change your jump in mid-air. Once you have made your jump, you're committed to that jump. That can be problematic, especially when you're in a heated boss fight. This is also true for the controls, which can stick at times.
Overall, the game is a great challenge to try. You may have a few problems with the mechanics of the game and the insane difficulty. However, don't let that deter you from giving Castlevania a go!
The Super Bowl 53 match-up is set, so now it's time to get to know the teams. Let's start off with the Los Angeles Rams, a team that's fresh off a move from St. Louis and is now on the biggest stage of them all.
The Jets had yet another Jets-y season, finishing last in the AFC East and going 4-12. They have yet another new quarterback under center, but their team is still dysfunctional. What should the Jets do to actually take a step forward?
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
