Blogger Blitz: A Judge’s Journey

“With great power comes great responsi…..”

“Yeah, I’ma stop you there Spiderman’s Uncle”

“No, wait. This is kind of important. See, with great power comes great resp….”

“Dude, we’ve been through this – not bothered, innit!?

“Yeah, but you should be ‘bothered’ – this is an important lesson, James”

“La, la, la. I can’t hear you!!”

 

…….is the conversation I initially had (in my head, obvs) when I was given the honour of being a Judge in the Blogger Blitz Community Event over at Adventure Rules. I then spent a good five minutes shouting “I AM the law” in my best Sylvester Stallone voice, before whipping out an imaginary gun and shooting (also imaginary) people with it. Because I’m a rubbish adult. Continue reading “Blogger Blitz: A Judge’s Journey”

Ten Things That Make Me Happy

First off, a big thanks to Kim over at Later Levels for the nomination. I’m sure most of you know her anyways, but if not you should absolutely rectify that post haste on account of her being one of the bestest Bloggers what exists and suchlike. Later Levels is positively packed with insightful, funny and interesting pieces on a plethora of Gaming shiznizz, and Kim still finds the time to be an active member of the Gaming community, and pack in some Gaming-related charity work too.

Next, the rules. Pretty simple and self-explanatory, really: list 10 things that make you happy. I’m not going to lie, at first I was all like, “Ten? Ten?? How’s that even possible?” but once I got thinking about it, turns out I’m not quite as miserable and devoid of feeling as I first thought. So without further ado, and in no particular order, here’s my list….. Continue reading “Ten Things That Make Me Happy”

Blogging Awards: Liebster and Sunshine

Despite the fact I’ve been pretty shonky of late in terms of output (and quality too, prob’ly), I’ve somehow managed to pick up a couple of community blogging awards which, as always, really mean a lot. It’s always nice to receive validation for what I always think of as my “clumsily stabbed out proto-thoughts” anyway, but when they come from fellow bloggers who I like and respect too, it’s that little bit more appreciated. The current trend seems to be to combine awards into one post – and not wanting to be left out – I’ma go ahead and do the same, so what follows is my Liebster/Sunshine twofer…..

Blogger Recognition Award

Don’t Even Think About It, Kanye……

Right away, I’d like to thank Anidaan over at The┬áMoral of the Story both for the nomination, and for the exceptionally kind words that came with it. If you haven’t already, you should totes check the place out, because it’s quite impressive. As somebody who constantly analyses and dissects narratives anyway, I was immediately taken with Anidaan’s ability to do it with Video Games (and other stuff too), and it’s always interesting reading what he took from a particular experience. Sometimes it’ll be something that I missed entirely and his insights, and his skill in delivering them, are always rewarding to read. Continue reading “Blogger Recognition Award”

Liebster Award Nomination

Ok, if you’re one of the two or three people who read this place you may’ve noticed I’ve not, like, posted anything for a while. For that I apologise – I had a friend visiting for a bit, and he didn’t seem too keen on just sitting inside and watching me play video games having forked out for a plane ticket to Brazil and whatnot. Some people, eh!?

Anyways, having fallen out of the habit of writing I was genuinely struggling for ideas and inspiration when, lo and behold, I was nominated for this by Particlebit, which was incredibly fortuitous and rather superb timing – so many thanks for that. I’m a big fan of his place anyways, so this was quite the honour. Continue reading “Liebster Award Nomination”

Weekend Gaming Doodah #14

Boo – yah! The weekend has arrived and another working week is in the books. Gone. Done. So long, and thanks for all the fish. As it so often does, the weekend probably means quality Gaming time for you, perhaps finished off with the next episode of a certain little TV show that features some dragons and Lord Commanders who couldn’t give a flying fuck about how, like, death works an’ shit. Truly we live in a joyous age. This is our time, fellow nerds. Our time! Continue reading “Weekend Gaming Doodah #14”
