Monthly Wrap-Up: July – August

Hello everyone! How has the last two months been for you? It’s been sooooooo long since my last post and it feels great to be finally back posting again. I didn’t intend to go without posting for so long, but life just got in the way. Towards the end of July, work became kind of…

Telltale’s Game of Thrones S1: a Review

I actually finished this post a couple months ago but never got around to edit it. And partly because I didn’t write anything this week and partly because GAME OF THRONES SEASON 7 PREMIEEEERRRRRRRR and partly because this game is on PlayStation Plus this month, it felt like an appropriate time to dust it off…

Monthly Wrap-Up: June

  Hello everyone, how has your month been like? I can’t quite phantom how half a year has already passed us by. It feels like someone pressed the fast forward button some time earlier this year.

E3 2017 Recap

This year’s E3 has been… in a word… underwhelming. I thought it would be a year where many of the publishers flaunt their exciting new IPs, herald glorious returns from series pass and push their awesome machines in our faces, and we would all happily throw money at our screens. But that was not to…

E3 2017 Hype and Speculations

E3 is happening in just a few days! Let’s get the hype train going! Or maybe not. This will be the first time in a long time that I won’t be able to watch live, except for EA (which is 3am my time) and maybe Sony, though I might have to save up some bandwidth…

Monthly Wrap-Up: May

  Hello everyone! How’s your month been like? I hope it has been well. It’s been a while since I had a chance to blog and with any luck, I’ll soon be able to be more active again, since one of my jobs has officially ended 🙂 There’s so much catching up to do too.…

Monthly Wrap-Up: April

Hello everyone, how has your April been? April was a great time for me, especially considering how the past three months have been. Most of it I put down to the amount of work holidays I had in April. A whole week off my night job and 3 days off my day job. That’s a…

Book Review: The Hollow Boy

The Hollow Boy is the third installment of Jonathan Stroud’s Lockwood and Co series. The series continues on from the Whispering Skull as Lockwood and Co’s string of recent success has resulted in a flood of clients. Well, that and the fact that most of the other big name agencies are tied up with a…

Monthly Wrap-Up March and a Look At 2017 So Far

Holy frost from the seven hells, I feel like time has just rushed past me, leaving me behind in its dusty, sandy wake. I’ve been away from this blog for a month! And boy, has that month been a terrible one for me. I didn’t get any writing done. I only watched some YouTube video.…

Monthly Wrap Up February

  Hey guys, how’s 2017 been so far for you? We’re 2 months in! Time really flies by! I hope 2017 has been treating you well! It’s been a while since I last did a wrap-up, so I’ve a lot to talk about. 2017, for me, has been a year of change. And I’m super…

Our 2¢ On: Rogue One: a Star Wars Story

Good day everyone, it’s been more than half a year since the last Our 2¢ post, and this one has been gestating for a while. I just haven’t gotten to editing it (sorry, Max!) This time around we’ll be discussing our thoughts on Rogue One: a Star Wars story. Our 2¢ is Max’s idea, and…

Ten of My Favorite Romance Tropes

It’s Valentine’s Day. Love is in the air! And appropriately enough, this week’s Top Ten Tuesday (by the Broke and the Bookish) is All About Romance Tropes/Types. It took me a while to put together this list. Initially, I had a hard time listing out what romance tropes even exist. And then the dam broke…
