E3 2019 | Highlights & Final Thoughts

E3 2019 | Highlights & Final Thoughts

I had been intending to do a write-up for each of the E3 conferences this year. However, in the end, I didn’t feel that there was enough content to do a write-up for each conference individually and also it was a lot of work for each post! This year’s E3 was incredibly disappointing and a lot of the games that were featured were ones that had already been premiered last year or even the year before. Whilst it was good to get updates on the games in development and some 2019/2020 release dates for those games, it meant that there was little to get excited about in terms of new games.

This year I watched the presentations/live-streams for EA Play, Microsoft, Bethesda, Ubisoft, the PC Gaming Show, and Nintendo. I did a presentation write-up for EA Play and Microsoft, but the other presentations (with the exception of Nintendo) didn’t leave me with much to talk about. So, instead, I’ll be sharing with you all my game highlights of E3 2019 in this post featuring the games that I’m most looking forward to playing in 2019/2020.

WWW Wednesday | 8th May 2019

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions:

What are you currently reading/playing?
What did you recently finish reading/playing?
What do you think you’ll read/play next?

This week has been pretty chill, making very slow progress on my essay and progress on books and games! I’m not looking forward to May as we have a lot of stressful things coming up (landlord inspection, deadlines, etc) so it’s going to be a bit difficult balancing everything that’s coming up. For now though, let’s catch up on this week.

Wrap Up | April 2019

Wrap Up | April 2019

I haven’t done a wrap up since my January wrap up earlier this year, although I’m not really sure why. Anyway, April turned out to be a pretty good month for me reading and life wise. I had a great birthday on April 15th and then attended Easter Con over the Eater weekend which has helped to greatly improve my mood over the past two weeks. I’m still struggling quite a lot with a particularly nasty Masters report I have to submit soon but that’s for future me to worry about. For now, let’s recap on all the great April things ❤

It was my birthday on Monday so I haven’t been able to get much reading done as a result of all of the birthday prep, celebrating and resting I’ve been doing! I did get a surprising amount of books for my birthday though so I am very happy about that (let’s not talk about how that makes my TBR pile feel though)

Have I Played This Yet? | C & D

Have I Played This Yet? | C & D

Welcome to the B side of Have I Played This Yet? In case you missed the introductory postHIPTYis a series started by Tecsie where she goes through her games alphabetically and talks about whether she’s played them or not. It’s a great way to hold myself accountable for all of the games I own that I haven’t yet played as well as inspire me to get playing them.

A | B

As I hardly have any games beginning with C, here’s a double whammy of C & D games for today!
