NEXT GAME POLL! APRIL FIRST!

Cast your votes, leave your comments. These are taken from the top recent suggestions and maybe one or two past ones! There's not many Fire Emblem games left that I haven't played, and I wanted to keep this poll all games that I haven't played for fresh, genuine reactions! I think Sacred Stones might be the only one I haven't played? And then there's some that I played and didn't finish.

NEXT GAME!

Hey guys! We got a few solid suggestions on the last episode of Hyrule Warriors, HOWEVER, a lot of people said I should make a post so that even those who weren't checking Hyrule Warriors can leave some suggestions. SO, do that here! We'll have a poll on Wednesday with the top suggestions! :]

Where have I been!

SO, if you're a regular here on shadypenguinn.com, the title to this blog post isn't going to make much sense! But this is really here for anyone from our YouTube channel, as we're starting our new Nuzlocke over there, and over here! :] -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SO, I haven't uploaded on YouTube since October, a real gaming video, anyway. Why is that? Well, the short story is that Let's Plays are completely dead on YouTube. They don't get

DECISIONS!

Hey all! We're gearing up to start the next playthrough, AND I NEED YOUR COMMENTS. Originally when I started this premium content journey, it was because I wanted the freedom to play the games I wanted without having to bend to YouTube's algorithm in order to survive financially. You guys gave me the honor of doing just that. However, at this current point in time, even if this website lost all of it's members, I would be financially stable, and I cannot thank you guys enough for that. BUT DO

November First

It's November first. Today is my daughter's 365th day on this planet. This year has been, intense. Intense in the best ways, and intense in some harder ways; but the biggest focal point has been my little light Abigail. Watching her grow from this little squish baby that could do nothing but sleep, cry, and poop, to watching her take some of her first steps, everything in between has been miraculous and life changing for me. I don't think you'll ever read this post, but I'm so lucky to have yo

Thank You

The start of another month, and this post is perfectly timed. This last month has been a little hard on me mentally. I tried a few new things on YouTube after my channel slowly going downhill since the incident in Spring, and it really all kind of came to a head...

It's Actually Hitting Me

I've been okay the last few days. A little bit heavy at times with everything, but I've been so concerned about other people that it's kept my head busy, I guess. But for some reason, moments ago, everything just started to hit...

Down and Up

Fall Outs Suck

Push Yourself

So a lot of you guys know that I'm currently a bit under the weather! I was really struggling with pushing myself to record today's Nuzlocke video, and in the past, if it was for YouTube, I definitely would've taken the day off to just bum out and rest up the entire day...
