Ah, books and gaming – my two passions in life. Why hasn’t anyone thought of bringing the two together more often?

Dialogue into acted, actual lines. Imagination-based lore into a realm you can explore… It’s a hard line to walk, where many have tried and failed. But the successes are great. ‘The Witcher’ series, for example – going from book to game to TV show, a viral phenomenon […]

My journey to that plat was riddled with challenges – Nightmare difficulty being one of them. Overpowered dragons, court balls, friendship aims – Dragon Age: Inquisition is no walk in the park. But it is […]

Hey Streamers! So I thought I’d do a monthly post where I’m a little bit more personal than in my usual reviews and articles. ‘Whatcha Watchin’?’ will be where I ramble about my blog progress, setting goals for the month ahead, what I’ve watched (duh), what video games I’ve played and what I’ve been up to for the past four weeks. Exciting, right? It’s almost October! My favourite month of the year. Pumpkin spice lattes are brewing (don’t judge me), the leaves are turning into their beautiful fiery shade of red and orange, and I’m […]

With 809 Pokémon, some are bound to get left behind, forgotten, unused, and abadoned, forever left to collect up digital dust. Apart from at this little geeky corner of the internet! I’ve rounded up a list of 11 Pokémon that deserve waaaay more love than they get. The poor little critters.   Mightyena   Okay, I might be a bit biased in that Mightyena is my favourite Pokémon of all time! I’m not even kidding.
