Thero’s Gaming A-Z: O.

We have reached the letter ‘O’ for this series of posts! This week’s post was actually an easy one to write, as there is only one game that begins with the letter ‘O’. Fortunately, this game happens to also be a solid JRPG, so let’s take a look!

Thero’s Gaming A-Z: N.

Its been a while since I’ve written a Gaming A-Z post, so I thought I should get back into writing these posts on a regular basis. Today’s post is about a game whose title begins with the letter ‘N’. I’ll be honest, there was only really one choice, so let’s take a look!

Thero’s Gaming A-Z: J.

I’m not sure how but this series of posts keeps getting harder to write each week! According to the game collection site I use, I only own seven games whose title begins with the letter ‘J’/ OK, not to worry, I’m sure I have options in my Steam library… oh, I only have ten games on Steam beginning with ‘J’. Seriously?! Out of over a thousand games in my Steam library only ten of them have a title beginning with the letter ‘J’?!

So, I guess I have to come clean hear and say that for these I’ve either haven’t really played them enough to write about them or I have played them and don’t feel like I could recommend them. So, that leaves this post in a slight bit of limbo. So, I guess I am going to pass this over to you guys and ask, what game, whose title begins with the letter ‘J’ do you recommend I should play? Let me know in the comments and join me next week, when I will have a game to talk about- don’t worry, I’ve already checked!

Gotta Play ‘Em All!

This is going to be a brief post just to let you know about a new series of posts that I will be writing about. As the 30 day Pokemon challenge is, finally, drawing to a close, I was thinking about how to continue celebrate Pokemon‘s 25th anniversary. I wanted to do something a little different that is not only a nod to the Pokemon series and also focusses on video games and gaming.

Don’t worry, I’m not embarking on a crazy play all the Pokemon games by the end of the year challenge. I learnt my lesson. No, instead I wanted to take a look at other monster catching/battling games and see if any of them manage to capture the Pokemon magic or how they manage to make their own mark on the genre. This isn’t about seeing who is the best built rather the effect that Pokemon had in gaming and how it has since influenced other video games.

As I will be playing each game to completion, this won’t be a weekly or even a monthly post but rather a post that will be written as and when I complete a relevant game. That being said, I’m not going to be restricting this series of posts to this this year only, as I don’t want to rush through these games.

So, when will the first Gotta Play ‘Em All posts be posted? Well, you won’t have long to wait, as it will be next Monday. So, I hope you will enjoy this new series of posts and please let me know if you have any recommendations for games I should I play for it. See you guys soon!
