Archives – Order To My Chaos

Welcome to my somewhat coherent archive of posts! Thank you to anyone out there who takes the time to read any words from this mess. 🙂

Video Game Ramblings

Post Playthrough Roundups – As I slowly complete video games in my backlog, I’ll make one of these summary posts about the game. This will include my final progress in the game, my unqualified opinion in the form of a quick review, and a trip down memory lane (if the game was long enough).

First Impressions – I’ll burden the internet with my opinions when I first embark on a gaming journey that I know will take significant time to finish, or if I find the time to try out a demo of something. These posts will contain my initial chaotic thoughts on the game. Did I blindly preorder a horrible monstrosity or is a game actually worthy of its hype for once? These types of questions, that no one asked, might possibly be answered.

Progress – I have a horrible memory and I use this blog to keep track of my journeys through various gaming worlds. These posts will explain what I’ve been up to and/or how badly I’m failing.

Wannabe Writer Ramblings

If I really have nothing worthwhile to say, but desperately want to blog about things, I’ll create mashups of my thoughts, or some other type of weird wordy post. I usually keep things video game related, but my mind may wander into other topics.

Random Thoughts


  • Happily Ever Inked – The grand reveal of my finished tattoo, and a response to the “10 Things That Make You Happy” blogger tag.
  • My E3 2017 Pipe Dreams – My gaming wishes will never come true…
  • The Girl with the Lightning Tattoo – After years of wanting, months of planning, and six hours in a tattoo chair, the start of my very first tattoo happened. If this doesn’t show how special Lightning is to me, nothing will.
  • April Fool’s Final Fantasy XIII Review – An uninvited guest review by raging internet troll, CelesHelen. This is mostly poking fun at all the hateful trolls that make me sad on the internet. No offense should be taken by anyone! I truly respect all opinions.
  • Housekeeping?! – Announcing some changes here on LightningEllen’s Release, including the creation of this archive.
  • A New Direction: What is Blog Anyway? – My meltdown post that destroyed “Conquering the Gaming Backlog” and gave rise to “LightningEllen’s Release”.



Obsessive Collector Ramblings

I have a problem with stopping myself from buying plastic figures of my favourite game characters, useless Art Books, pretty strategy guides, and cruel Nintendo’s adorably addictive Amiibo figures. Sometimes I might make a dedicated post about the shiny item I just acquired.

Blogger Awards

Believe it or not, some of the far greater bloggers out there have blessed me with award nominations. Though these can be seen as glorified chain letters, I find them interesting to read since they place the empowering spotlight on the other brilliant bloggers out there.


I see so much hate for the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy that I can’t help but hit the reblog button whenever I see someone say nice things about it. I’m biased and I can’t help it!
