Diablo Gear: A Few of My Favourite Things

Diablo Gear: A Few of My Favourite Things

One of the most wonderfully fun things about Diablo 3 is how much character customization there is in terms of gear. I mean, sure, there are a few limitations, like I can’t have a tiny little demon hunter swinging a two-handed barbarian shovel-mace, but still.

Pokémon HeartGold: Revisiting a Classic

Comic Book Movies: A Matter of Perspective

Some background, before I dive on in: My boyfriend and I met by being total nerds together.

Our first conversation ever was about our favourite superheroes (his is Batman, and mine is Iron Man). He even brought me Lego Batman minifigs on our first date. Continue reading “Comic Book Movies: A Matter of Perspective”
