Few games have captured my attention as the Kingdom Rush series. These fantasy tower defense games bring creativity and complexity to a simple game format. I will only briefly go over the first 3 installments of the franchise. I’m mainly focusing on the newest installment, Kingdom Rush: Vengeance. Vengeance focuses on the storyline of Vez’nan (the villain from the first Kingdom Rush) finding that after returning from banishment, his old evil fortress had been turned into a carnival. Breaking from traditional games, in Vengeance, you play as Vez'nan’s general as you command the bad guys.

Go toe to toe with friends and rivals in game modes ranging from 'steal the bacon' to soccer, while attempting to configure the ultimate team in the online game Brawl Stars. Currently the game has six game modes that cycle every day, Monday through Friday (showdown, bounty, gem grab, heist, brawl ball, and siege). On the weekends, three additional game modes are available to play (big game, robo rumble, and boss fight). Two of these weekend modes are three players against CPUs (computer controlled enemies) while the third is a five vs. one match up with real people. Every game mode has multiple maps that change as they come available.

After receiving a Grammy for album of the year, Apple Music’s album of the year, and CMA’s album of the year, I decided I had to listen to Kacey Musgraves’ fourth studio album, Golden Hour. If I didn’t know Kacey Musgraves was a country artist, I never would’ve considered this a country album. Country is my least favorite genre, but I decided to give this one a try.
