One of the new year’s resolutions I gave myself this year is to read and complete 20 books within this year of 2016. So far I’ve played and completed 8 books and I’m currently reading my 9th, which is The Last Coyote by Michael Connelly.
The other books I’ve completed are:
- Scott Pilgrim Volume 3
- The Black Echo by Michael Connelly
- The Black Ice by Michael Connelly
- The Concrete Blonde by Michael Connelly
- The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith
- Scott Pilgrim Volume 4
- The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod
- The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith
I came up with the idea for microreviews after trying my hand at the traditional longwinded method of game reviewing and realizing that I myself have never fully read a whole game review. Have you? The visuals catch my eye and then I skim for the bits of information that interest me and I leave the rest alone.
Solution: I play games, I take screenshots, and I provide basic information on the game with a rating out of 20 points tallied up from four different categories; Fun factor, gameplay, sound and visual style. Although I will confess that some of the screenshots may not be my own based on whether I was able to capture while playing.
Of course, I love discussing games. So if you’d like to start a conversation about any game I’ve played and posted a microreview for, please don’t hesitate to leave me a comment!
My first microreview on Uncharted: Drakes Fortune will post next Tuesday, May 24th.
Welcome to my new blog!
For those of you who may not be familiar with me, I’ve had other blogs on other platforms before, but as I transition into a new part of my life, I’ve decided to transition my blog onto a whole new platform and give a new look and tone.
What’s new? Well, my parents are moving in with my 90 year old grandmother to help keep an eye on her and take care of her, rather than hire a stranger or place her in a home. This leaves their house available to us and once we’ve done a bit of work to make it our own, we will be starting a family!
In addition, I’m also toying with the idea of starting my own shop on Storenvy. I won’t spoil it with too many details until I know more what I’m about, but I can tell you it will be focused on handmade felt garlands.
This blog will still be very game and health-centric, I’d just like to start widening my lens to explore more aspects of life.
