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!

Thero’s Gaming A-Z: E.

Its week five, which means its time to talk about a game begining with the letter ‘E’! This was a bit of a challenge, as I haven’t played that many games beginning with ‘E’. Fortunately, one of my favourite games of all time does begin with ‘E’ and I haven’t yet recommeneded it in one of my recommendation posts. Can you guess what it could be? Well, let’s take a look!

Thero’s Gaming A-Z: A.

A couple of years ago, a number of gaming blogs did a series, in which each week they would have a particular letter and in the post the bloggers would have to talk about games that began with that letter. Well, as always, I’m a little late to the party! Still, I thought it would be a bit of fun, if each week I tried to recommend one game based on the letter of that week. So, let’s take a closer look at this challenge that I’ve set for myself…
