There’s a certain feeling you get when you walk into your favorite store. A sense of excitement and mystery, as you look earnestly to see what new products await you. When walking in that store, there’s an emphasis on design that can create a sense of belonging–You instantly know that you and the other customers share a common bond. It’s this reason I end up spending money 95% of the time I visit Wish in Atlanta. It’s also why I visit the Nike Store or the Apple Store in Lenox, knowing good and damn well there’s nothing new in the store from the last visit. Yet I’ll visit those stores every time I’m in the mall. But the opposite is also true. Visit a store that cares more about moving product and you feel a sense of dread…like how I feel when I visit GameStop.
The hype train has left the station, I got my first class ticket. Anyone else peep New Monarchy in the background?
Thank God Spider-Man is back in the MCU. Ever since he joined Iron Man in Civil War, I’ve really been interested in what a solo Spider-Man film would look like. From the looks of the trailer I think they’re on the right track. Especially with Michael Keaton playing a villain that isn’t too far removed from Birdman. This might actually be a good Spider-man movie.
April begins this Saturday which means a new month and new games to play.

The JRPG that’s moving from a cult following to a mainstream success story. For more information about Persona 5 and the rest of the list of games releasing in April, hit the link below.
