It’s been a while

Hi. It’s been a while. Only about two years and a whole pandemic. Feels kind of weird that it’s actually been that long since I last even looked at WordPress.

I was in the middle of working on my thesis when I decided to take a break from blogging and after all that was done I just never felt like getting back to it for a lot of reasons. Mostly because I was so incredibly burnt out from uni and my mental health was in little fragile pieces that needed to be put back together. It has taken me a long time to start feeling sort of normal again and I recently finally got this little spark of “hey, maybe I could have energy for a little hobby again”.

So here we are. Thought a little life update would be in order before I get back into posting whatever. Don’t ask what kind of stuff I plan on posting or how often because I have no idea yet.

Games I’m Looking Forward to in 2020


I realized I’ve accumulated quite a few 2020 games on my wishlist over the past few months, so I thought it could be fun to share some of the ones I’m especially looking forward to this year! Most of them don’t have any kind of release dates just yet (other than 2020), but all of them seem really cool and some have demos available if you’re curious and want to try them out.

Books and Tea 2020 Reading Challenge


Our book club Books and Tea has its own reading challenge this year! There are 12 prompts so basically one book a month, which lines up perfectly with my usual Goodreads reading challenge, so I’m happily taking part. You can find more information about the challenge on Lauren’s blog post, including a small list of staff recommendations for one of the prompts.

I’ve already tried to put together a list of books that fit the prompts but I don’t really do TBRs or anything like that so I won’t be surprised if at the end of the year turns out half the books are something completely different. Continue reading “Books and Tea 2020 Reading Challenge”

2019 Wrap Up


I feel weird making a yearly wrap up after not blogging at all for a couple of months but hey I want to do this anyway. I feel like I’ve been a bit of a mess this whole year and I’m just a little bit confused how it’s the end of December already. I did my internship (which was great), started my final year of uni and now I’m working on my thesis and just trying to not crumble to dust at any point. Fun fact though, I’m making a little game as my thesis project so you can probably expect to see that this spring!

Now, let’s go through my gaming and reading highlights of the year. Continue reading “2019 Wrap Up”

Let’s Play Together! | Bi-monthly play-along


Hi, I’m back! At least trying to be.

Anyway, I’ve been toying with this idea of like a book club but for video games for a little while now and after testing the amount of interest on Twitter I decided to just go for it!

What is this?

The idea is that every other month we choose three games to play and talk about on me and my fiance’s Discord server, RPG Club. Continue reading “Let’s Play Together! | Bi-monthly play-along”

My Fiance Tries My Games


So my fiance and I have a very different taste in games. He plays mostly FPS games and more classic RPG type of games and I’m more into pretty story games that may not always have the most complicated game mechanics. A little while ago he suggested we should do a little experiment where we try out a couple of games from each other’s Steam libraries just to see if there’s anything we end up liking.

I gave Aks ten games to choose from, and he picked five of them to try. Since I’ve reviewed most of the games on here I’ll link my reviews after Aks’s thoughts so you get to read both of our thoughts if you’re interested because they probably differ a lot haha.

October Gaming Wrap Up


I actually forgot the month was ending this time because I’m that good at keeping track of time lately. But hey, I’ve actually played a decent amount of games this month! And bought games, because I’m bad and used my birthday as an excuse and also a couple of games I’ve been really excited for happened to be released in October as well. Continue reading “October Gaming Wrap Up”

Spooky Games for Non-Horror Fans


I’m really not someone who enjoys scary games, but since Halloween is coming up I wanted to post something sort of related anyway. I figured I can’t be the only one who wants to just play something mildly spooky instead of an actual horror game, so why not recommend some games that are within my own spooky limits.

Some of these haven’t even seen a scary game, and some of them are actually in that genre but I just think they have cool enough stories to be motivated to power through the scary bits. Continue reading “Spooky Games for Non-Horror Fans”

The Never Tilting World by Rin Chupeco 

Frozen meets Mad Max in this epic teen fantasy duology bursting with star-crossed romance, immortal heroines, and elemental magic, perfect for fans of Furyborn.

Generations of twin goddesses have long ruled Aeon. But seventeen years ago, one sister’s betrayal defied an ancient prophecy and split their world in two. The planet ceased to spin, and a Great Abyss now divides two realms: one cloaked in perpetual night, the other scorched by an unrelenting sun.

While one sister rules Aranth—a frozen city surrounded by a storm-wracked sea —her twin inhabits the sand-locked Golden City. Each goddess has raised a daughter, and each keeps her own secrets about her sister’s betrayal.

But when shadowy forces begin to call their daughters, Odessa and Haidee, back to the site of the Breaking, the two young goddesses —along with a powerful healer from Aranth, and a mouthy desert scavenger —set out on separate journeys across treacherous wastelands, desperate to heal their broken world. No matter the sacrifice it demands.

Game Review: Neo Cab


I found out about Neo Cab during LudoNarraCon and also tried a demo of it back then and pretty much knew right away that I needed the full game when it came out. And it was finally released on October 3rd so naturally I grabbed it right away!

You play as Lina, who is one of the last human cab drivers and she’s moving to Los Ojos to live with her best friend Savy. However, once you get there Savy immediately disappears who knows where and you’re left to solve that mystery while doing your job or driving people around the city.
