Thero’s Recommended Gaming: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch.

Today, I wanted to recommend a game that I played last year- a game that I wished I had played sooner. It is a fantastic JRPG that well deserves its reputation as a classic. The game I am recommending today is Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch.

Thero’s Recommended Gaming: Slay the Spire.

It has been quite some time since I have recommended a game on A Reluctant Hero. I thought I would change that today, by recommending a game that I still play three years after its release. The game I am recommending today is Slay the Spire.

Thero’s Gaming A-Z: Y.

Yet, again this is going to be a very short post. Now, unlike some posts where I haven’t played any games whose titles begin with a particular letter, for the letter ‘Y’ I have completed one game. That game is Yoshi’s Crafted World for the Nintendo Switch. However I won’t talk about that game as it isn’t one that I would recommend. Yoshi’s Crafted World is a charming, colourful platformer but it is also a short and repetitive experience, certainly one I would not advise paying full price for. Once again, I would love to receive some recommendations from you guys about what games you would recommend whose titles begin with the letter ‘Y’.

As for the final post, I will be talking about a game next week, so please join me the final ‘Gaming A-Z’ post. See you next week!

Thero’s Gaming A-Z: X.

Unfortunately, today is going to be another very short post, as I do not have a game to talk about for today’s post. I have played a number of games, whose title begins with the letter ‘X’ like XCOM: Enemy Unknown and X-Men Legends. However I have not finished any of these games, which means I do not feel comfortable recommending them- yet. So, if you have a game that you would recommend for this post, please let me know in the comments below and I’ll talk to you soon!

Thero’s Gaming A-Z: V.

Unfortunately, this is going to be a very short post. To put it simply: I have not completed any game whose title begins with the letter ‘V’. I have checked my console games and my Steam account; whilst I have played a number of games that I could talk about, I haven’t completed them. I said from the start of this challenge, I would only talk about games I would recommend and I would not recommend a game I have not finished. So, there is no game for this week. If you have any games you would recommend, whose title begins with the letter ‘V’ , that I should play,  please let me know in the comments as I always love getting some gaming recommendations.

The good news is there will definitely be a game for me to talk about next week, as next week’s post will be about the letter ‘W’. Hopefully, I will see you next week!

Thero’s Nintendo Switch Game Christmas Gift Guide.

OK, this post is a little later than expected but if you know someone or indeed is someone who is desperately looking for Nintendo Switch game recommendations, then this is the post for them/you!

I did do a game recommendation post for PS4 games and like with that post, I do have some ground rules to establish. Firstly, all of the games I am recommending can be found on This way, if anyone who is not familiar with games is looking, they can easily buy it. This does mean there won’t be any niche games, but I’ll try and throw in some lesser known titles. Also, these are games that I have played either on Switch or another platform, so you know that I have experienced the games I am recommending. Unfortunately, that does mean you won’t see any Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate or Luigi’s Mansion 3, although I have heard that all three are excellent games. OK, let’s dive into the games I can recommend!
