Pokémon Let’s Go: A Girly Geek Review

Pokémon Let’s Go: A Girly Geek Review

Back in August last year, I was super excited about the prospect of the first Pokémon game to ever hit the Switch. There was a lot I was looking forward to; from the Pokéball Plus to playing multiplayer, and especially finally being able to walk around with my Pokémon again.

I kind of resigned myself to not being able to play it right away, because we didn’t have a Switch and because we didn’t have the money to buy ourselves one.

But then, for Christmas, I got one. And what was the first game I bought for it?

That’s right: Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee. Continue reading “Pokémon Let’s Go: A Girly Geek Review”

My Adventures in Minecraft Aquariums

My Adventures in Minecraft Aquariums

Last Saturday, I had a toddler day.

See, I’m basically my dear boyfriend’s toddler. If there’s something wrong with me, he asks either if I’ve had a snack or if I’ve had a nap, and if the answer to either one is “no,” then it’s time to stop having a meltdown and have that thing.

Why I Didn’t Love the Necromancer’s Season Set

You may recall that not too long ago, I discovered that necromancers are a thing in Diablo 3. I was also surprised at how powerful the character was, even before Blizzard announced that it was releasing a buff.

In that same post, I had mentioned how dearly I was hoping for a good set reward for the necromancer in Season 11.

Alas, it was not meant to be. Continue reading “Why I Didn’t Love the Necromancer’s Season Set”

How I Botched My First Pokemon Go Raid

How I Botched My First Pokemon Go Raid

So lately, I guess everyone has been all in a stir over Pokemon Go’s legendary raids for Articuno, Moltres, and Zapdos.

May I just say for a moment how much I wish it looked like this?

I was only a level 24 on Pokemon Go at the time the raids started. Now, this does mean that I couldn’t play the raids for the birds myself, because it was my understanding that you had to be level 25 to participate in raids. Continue reading “How I Botched My First Pokemon Go Raid”
