Meta: Today has been a long one. I had work last night, I’ve had two hours sleep and I’ve spent the day driving around seeing family, so forgive me if this is another somewhat limited discussion of this topic. Hey, the challenge is to post for 30 days straight right? No one said they had to be good…Ahh yes. Genre. ——- In the world of video … Continue reading Day 20: Favourite Genre
I cheated a little. Yesterday’s post was actually hastily written 2 days ago. Whilst it somewhat goes against the spirit of the challenge, I really need a day off from this to focus on some of life’s little obstacles. Those obstacles have (for the most part) been dealt with..for a few days, and I’m back to spend a little time writing about a topic I’m actually … Continue reading Day 19: Picture of a Game Setting You Wished You Lived In
Meta: I’m tired. Grouchy and..I’m pretty pissed off. As such, today’s post is going to be a short one. We’re really in the weeds here huh?

Favourite. I like favourites. It means I don’t have to try and justify why thing A is better than thing B. I can tell you I enjoy something and you can think I’m a total idiot for enjoying it whilst being entirely safe in the knowledge that it doesn’t make me wrong. So without further ado. My favourite video game antagonist is: GLaDOS I’m not … Continue reading Day 17: Favourite Antagonist

They’re really rather broad and for the most part, require the author to spend half an hour googling for an answer that they’ve got no way knowing off the top of their head. Today’s topic is no different. After 20 minutes of googling ‘Best Video Game Cut-scene’ here’s my favourite. I played an awful lot of … Continue reading Day 16: The Game with the Best Cut-scene
As gamers, we’re constantly told to check our hype, that we shouldn’t get too excited about things because ‘Oh it’s just hype’, almost as if people forget that video games as a hobby are supposed to be fun; that it’s perfectly fine to get excited about things that excite you. Over the last few years we’ve seen E3 change from the most important event in … Continue reading I Don’t Want E3 to Disappear.
Quick one today, I’m a busy bee. So I’m currently working my way through the genuinely beautiful Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on my Switch. I’m not usually a Zelda guy…. but I had to buy something right? Forgive the poor quality image. I guess they destroy the image with compression when you upload it to twitter. The game is really, really something … Continue reading Day 15: A Screenshot From Your Current Game
