Clickbait Boyfriend: 2 Chainz (of Memories)

Folks, I’ve really done it: Clickbait Boyfriend is addicted to Kingdom Hearts. How do I know? Not only did he make it through the cinematics of varying quality, but he’s now poised to complete his fourth game, and of all things, it’s Chain of Memories. Will he make it all the way to the end? Let’s see…

This week, we begin with exciting news: Clickbait Boyfriend and I are the proud owners of a new PS4! We can finally play all of the games we’ve missed out on the past five years, by far the most important of which is Kingdom Hearts 2.8. Black Friday deals came just in the nick of time…

Clickbait Boyfriend: 358 Nobodies in a Daze

Despite the mockery I endured in yesterday’s Clickbait Girlfriend guest post on my trials and travails playing Portal, Clickbait Boyfriend is still, against all odds, Clickbait Boyfriend. Doesn’t he know by now that I have to be good at everything? For the sake of the blog series, let’s hope he goes back to his usual reverence and…

Clickbait Boyfriend: Xtreme Xistential X-Blade X-Fit

We’ve been too busy playing slightly more niche Nomura title The World Ends With You Final Remix which, as you can imagine, Clickbait Boyfriend had strong feelings…

Clickbait Boyfriend: Is Kingdom Hearts Sexist? One New Yorker Thinks it Might Be

Way back in the first Kingdom Hearts, Clickbait Boyfriend pondered whether the game was racist. He was being pretty tongue-in-cheek, but it’s a serious question worth addressing. It’s certainly not doing anything noteworthy in terms of representation! This week, in a month where these kinds of questions feel particularly salient, he wonders whether or not Birth…

Clickbait Boyfriend: Bow to the Rodent Queen

Let’s be honest: Kingdom Hearts is a pretty male-dominated series. The whole first game was about literal damsels in distress (well, and darkness), and until this past week’s blog, Clickbait Boyfriend had never been able to play as a woman!
