Things I can’t resist doing in games #4

After revealing my junk hoarding, semi-homicidal gaming foibles in earlier pieces, I thought it was time to confess to another set of weird gaming habits. This time I’m going to focus on my crappy combat abilities, such as firing sniper rifles point-blanc at enemies, not taking cover to reload or, more accurately, not taking cover at all. I am a serial “fire from the hip” … Continue reading Things I can’t resist doing in games #4

First Impressions: The Elder Scrolls Online

I finally renewed my PlayStation Plus+ membership and jumped back into Elder Scrolls Online. I was lucky enough to test the Beta version twice for PC, so was super excited when I received a copy for my PS4 at Christmas from J. I am only a few hours in and still finding my feet, but I thought I’d give a general explanation of how I feel … Continue reading First Impressions: The Elder Scrolls Online

Pieces of a person: Taking care of your whole self

I can readily admit that I wasn’t always my own Number 1 priority; I would often place my needs second, third – OK, totally last – compared to the needs of others, because it brought me joy to think I was helping someone or made them happy.

“The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” Review

There are a vast number of open world, exploration-driven RPG’s on the market right now, which can make finding a game you will enjoy quite challenging. I’ve spent upwards of ten or twenty hours on a game to finally decide that, actually, I don’t get it and it isn’t for me. Whilst there have been a number of decision based games that I have enjoyed … Continue reading “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” Review

France through drunken eyes: Burgers

Once upon a time in 2010, I lived in Poitiers, France, as part of the ERASMUS exchange programme. It was a pretty defining year for me as I was struggling with depression and anxiety, a love/hate relationship with university mixed with a true desire to finally move out of the family home and make it on my own. So, on 2nd September, armed with my … Continue reading France through drunken eyes: Burgers
