Our weekly dose of X-Men nostalgia!
Having worked in retail for 10 years, I have experienced quite a few things that , quite frankly, I want to rant about. This week, I’m ranting about customers who leave things to the last minute.
Since the Christmas jumper seems to be a thing people are deciding to wear again, these might actually be ideal gift for someone you know this Christmas. In this post, I’ll be looking at some geeky themed jumpers, suitable for the festive season.
Its not quite Christmas, but Final Fantasy XIV is giving us the gift of another seasonal event, this time to celebrate the release of an expansion for Dragon Quest X in Japan.
In my Recommended Gaming posts, I’ve been recommending a lot of RPGs; so to spice things up, this week I’m recommended a completing different type of game!
Hi guys, I hope you are all enjoying the Christmas madness of December. Things have been pretty hectic for me, as you can probably tell, with the fact that I had some issues with my Bambi post last week. Fingers crossed, that should be the last of the teething problems for Daily December!
What have I been reading?
I finished A Dance of Cloaks by David Dalglish. You can tell he was inspired by George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series and Brent Weeks’ Night Angel Trilogy; there was a lot of death and betrayal. I really enjoyed the politics and intrigue, so I’ll be picking up the next book in the series, A Dance of Blades, soon. At the moment, I’m about to start Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison, I’ve read it a few years ago and have been wanting to re-read it for a little while. The best way to describe it is its urban fantasy, set in our world but with an altered history. I’ve also been meaning to read the Warhammer 40,000 novels that have been piling up. I had subscribed to this collection a year ago and I have only read about four of them. I feel I need to read some grim sci-fi to add some diversity to my reading.
What have I been playing?
Quite a few games! My Breton Templar, in ESO, is now level 9 and I’m currently exploring the Orc island with her. In Final Fantasy XIV, my White Mage has reached level 33 and is making steady progress through the main story, after getting distracted with some many seasonal events.
Aside from MMOs, I’ve also been playing Assassin’s Creed Origins, where I’m currently finishing the side activities in Memphis. I’ve also been dabbling in Horizon Zero Dawn, mainly getting distracted by the open world activities and collectables. After receiving my December Humble Monthly Bundle, I decided to play one of the games in the bundle, Passpartout, a game where you are playing as an artist who wants to become famous. I’ve only played less than an hour of it but I can’t say it has really won me over, but I’m going to give it a little more time.
What am I blogging about this week?
I’m going to make this a little easier, by listing the next six days:
- Tuesday: Recommended Gaming post, this time about a creative business management game- it even has a Christmas theme! … sort of.
- Wednesday: I’m talking about (another) MMO event, this time in Final Fantasy XIV.
- Thursday: A Gift Ideas post about geeky ugly Christmas jumpers.
- Friday: I’m
rantingdiscussing about things that happen while working in retail at Christmas.
- Saturday: I talk about episode episode 5 of X-Men: The Animated Series, called Captive Hearts.
- Sunday: My Disney Classics Challenge post on Bambi.
And that was my week! I would love to hear what you guys are getting up to, especially in the run-up to Christmas, so let me know in the comments below!
Hi guys, this is just a quick post to let you know that I’m postponing the Bambi post until next. Basically, I’m not happy with what I’ve written and I need some time to make some changes. I’m sorry about the delay, the post is coming but I don’t want to put it up on the blog until I am completely happy with it.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I’ll talk to you guys soon!
