HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Seth Stoddard

This is the last-ever High School Dreams post. Ever. EVER. Seth Stoddard Stereotype: Emo kid I decided early on in this playthrough that Seth was going to be my favorite. The heart of my 12-year-old self (circa 2005) beat wildly at Seth's wardrobe, demeanor, and poetic ambitions. I never got the Gerard Way obsession; I get the Seth Stoddard one.… Continue reading HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Seth Stoddard

HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Benny B

This week's been a bit rough - I'm finishing up a senior thesis, recently presented at an undergraduate symposium, and have emigrated for the weekend for my brother's wedding. The rehearsal dinner just wrapped up and I have about 17 hours of free time until the big day, so I thought I'd take a break from… Continue reading HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Benny B

All that to say, thanks to High School Dreams, I'm pretty prommed out, and I… Continue reading HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Eugene Moss

HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Petey Jacobs

I realized in my last post that while I raged about what a douche Landon was, I didn't go into enough detail about the story and gameplay. I'll try to remedy that with this next post. Fun fact: In High School Dreams, if you don't buy a prom dress by the date of the prom,… Continue reading HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Petey Jacobs

HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Landon

I'm a connoisseur of terrible computer games targeted at girls. I've played a LOT - most of the early Barbie games, various pet simulations, an awful dating sim that will remain nameless. When I saw a trailer for "High School Dreams" while watching Let's Plays on Youtube, you better believe I bought that business for… Continue reading HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Landon
