Gaming + Technology
I am an influencer’s dream. I am the target market. If you show me something enough, I will want it. Also, as paranoid as I am about the Internet spying on me, I don’t really do anything to stop it; I don’t clear my cookies, I don’t really have a look at my privacy settings and I let all my apps talk to each other – so the Internet has a pretty good idea about what I will like and what I won’t like. In fact, the Internet probably knows better than I do. I’d been watching a lot of YouTube videos where people buy the first five things advertised to them on social media (another example of the Internet knowing what I’d like, with Youtube suggesting so many to me again and again), and I quite fancied giving the Internet a proper test to see how well it knew me! My problem was, I was skint, and alone in London, so I decided to let the Internet suggest things for me that were free, and that let me down the app game route. I decided to have a play of the first five games the Internet advertised to me, regardless of what I thought of the advert. I’d accept influence from general adverts, adverts in other games that give your free game currency in return for watching and, if I was struggling, from the Google Play store. I was running out of space on both my phone and iPad, so the game had to impress me to be kept, and I struggled to get good Internet in my digs, and in work, so the game also couldn’t be too heavy on the data usage, though I knew downloading five games would be a bit of a big hit anyway.

Tara recently shared this post, where she discussed her move to a Mac. I found it really interesting to see how she coped with the differences between the operating systems, and it made me realise I could never make the move to Mac! I love reading about people’s adventures with technology – so I thought I’d share some quick thoughts on a few pieces of technology I’ve picked up over the past few months! Continue reading
If I hadn’t been unemployed for the past two and a half months, I would have spent a small fortune during the Steam Sale this time around. For some reason, every game looked incredibly appealing, and I don’t usually have much self-control when it comes to spending. As I said though, I’ve had no work since May and I have the second half of my tax bill looming, so even I knew I needed to be sensible when game hunting! Continue reading
The Steam Sale is nearly over, and I have bought nothing so far. I’m not making any money at the moment, so I’ve managed to talk myself out buying anything that isn’t essential but I don’t think it will be long before I cave in. I can’t resist pretty games, and I can’t resist a bargain and Steam have some real bargains!
People have different opinions on what counts as a bargain though, and I saw so many websites recommending new games that were still around £30 on sale. That might be a bargain in comparison, but for skint people like me, it’s far too much! I had a look through my Steam library, and picked out 5 games I love that I got for a real bargain price – less than £5. With just two days left of the sale, here’s 5 games I’d recommend you get from the Steam Sale, each for £5 or less!
