Things I can’t resist doing in games #3

I’m a pretty chatty person in real life, as well as a good listener. I do have a tendency to interrupt people when I’m excited about a topic, however. In games, on the other hand, I switch between being a profuse dialogue reviewer and feverishly skipping past conversations because I’ve already played this game a hundred times/ really couldn’t care less/ read the subtitles instead. … Continue reading Things I can’t resist doing in games #3

Payday must-have: Kitty bag

I am a self-confessed cat enthusiast. I have a Christmas cat jumper, a regular cat jumper, a cat bed spread, phone covers, soft toys – EVERYTHING. The only thing I don’t have is a real cat, which is a disappoint I re-live on a daily basis. SO! On my hunt for all things cats, I stumbled upon this beauty on ASOS: Whilst there’s every chance … Continue reading Payday must-have: Kitty bag

“Kingdom Come: Deliverance” Warhorse Studios Kickstarter Plug

I have found myself in a bit of a gaming lull. Having reached 200 hours of gameplay with both The Witcher 3 and Fallout 4, I am trying to find a new obsession to fill the gap between The Witcher’s new DLC and Mass Effect: Andromeda next year. I can’t quite decide if I want to buy Tom Clancy’s: The Division just yet and am … Continue reading “Kingdom Come: Deliverance” Warhorse Studios Kickstarter Plug

Fun Fact Friday #3

Ok, it’s technically Saturday morning, but still! It’s been a busy old week, so here comes my belated super Fun Fact for Friday! The sound of people coughing and sneezing makes my blood boil. I literally cannot stand it and feel sorry for anyone who coughs/sneezes/breathes heavily around me because I (apparently) stare at them like I want them to be struck with lightning. According … Continue reading Fun Fact Friday #3

Things I can’t resist doing in games #2

Good evening and welcome to another edition of “Things I can’t resist doing in games!” This week I’m focusing on a slightly controversial habit of mine whilst playing large-world RPG’s: Randomly killing NPC’s/ whole towns. I know what you’re thinking: Video games turn people into psychopaths! They make kids violent! Quite the contrary; I’m a bit of a pacifist. Vocal, yes, but I don’t exactly … Continue reading Things I can’t resist doing in games #2

20 years of Pokémon: Cards, cartridges and cartoons

I can still remember the first two Pokémon cards I ever owned: A Weedle and a “Gust of Wind” card. They were given to me by a classmate who had “like, 8 of those” and was surprised that I hadn’t discovered what would be the biggest gaming franchise I’d ever follow. After that, Pokémon exploded into my life like no other hobby/obsession ever had. I … Continue reading 20 years of Pokémon: Cards, cartridges and cartoons
