Surprisingly, despite my attempts to do an A-Level, run a business, work on shows and learn to swim, I had an incredible amount of time in August for gaming. (Possibly because I didn’t run the business…..or do the A-level. I can swim though.) Last month, being out of the house so often, I really rekindled my love for the Nintendo Switch, though it does mean my 3DS sees the light of day less and less each week. I also upgraded my phone so I now get 100gb of data a month, so the app games got downloaded thick and fast. 90% of my gaming was done on the go. It’s incredible to think of how much mobile gaming has come on over the last few years, and how much more accepted it is within the gaming community.
I’ve tried to stay balanced, though, and written about 4 games on a mix of platforms. This whole post had the potential to become a list of apps I’d downloaded, and that wouldn’t be any fun.
I’ve seen so many posts and Tweets saying January lasted too long, but personally I don’t feel like I had enough January. Considering I go back to work on February 18th, I’d quite like a bit more January – as there’s still so much for me to fix in my house. In all honesty, I had plenty of time to do it while I was off, but it’s been bitterly cold and the last thing I wanted to do on a frosty day was paint my garden wall, or repaint the cold hall. Instead, I played a lot of games. Some of them only kept my interest for a few hours, but below are the five I played the most during January.
Come back, January… 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!
