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”

Mission Possible: My 2018 Game List

One of the biggest struggles facing gamers today is that of the backlog.

This is a vicious cycle that begins when many, many games hit the market, and there just isn’t enough time to play them all.

If you’ve ever experienced the U.S. version of the Office, you’ve experienced the sheer joy and face-palmery that is Dwight K. Schrute. He’s a real unique character, if you will.

One of my favourite mini-scenes of Dwight is his obsession with Second Life, where you can literally be anything and he chooses to be exactly as he is now, plus flying. It’s just such a perfect example of his personality. Continue reading “How I Got Hooked on the Sims”

How I Became a Legend

How I Became a Legend

Okay, so I’m not really a legend. But you’ll see what I mean by the end of this post. It all starts with League of Legends.

League of Legends is one of those games that I was always aware of because people around me played it, but I never got into it. Why? Well, I had played tower defence-style games before (Bloons, anyone?), but I’d heard the community was—ah—lightly salted, if you will. Continue reading “How I Became a Legend”
