Monthly Summary: September 2020

After my slight gaming lull in August, I feel like I’ve redeemed myself during September. I somehow managed to completed 10 games, publish 8 blog posts and still have enough time to no-life Smite… all in all, it’s been a good month.

With September over, it also means it’s time to pull out the horror games and get into a spooky mood! I have a huge list of games to play with the run up to Hallowe’en and I’m itching to get started. But before I do, here’s what I got up to during September!

The J-Pop Tag

Today, I’m straying away from my usual topic of gaming to share my other passion – music. This post is my take on ‘The K-Pop Tag’ by Michelle over at a Geek Girl’s Guide, but I changed it to J-Pop instead. For me, J-Pop covers a whole variation of Japanese music including J-Rock, EDM, Utaite and Vocaloid music as well as the typical Pop chart music (although theirs’s is so much different to what we have here in the UK), so you can expect a selection of genres within this post.

Smite: Odyssey 2021

The first content for the Odyssey 2021 has arrived with Patch 7.9: Odyssey: Reckoning update notes. This year, the Odyssey works a little different to how it has in previous years, so in this post I’ll give an overview of what’s new, what you can gain for free and how to make the most of your Gems!

Firstly, the winner of the Odyssey T5 Skin contest was awarded to Hel with the Eclipse Summoner skin which arrived to Smite with patch 7.9. You can see the process of how Hel was crowned winner of the T5 skin here.

Seriously Geeky Sundays: Back To School

This week, it seems like we’re all going back to school: Fandom Style! It’s been quite some time since I was at school and I’m definitely glad that all behind me, but it’s been pretty fun to imagine what school life might be like in a universe that’s quite different to the reality we live it. Thanks to Heather at Just Geeking By for these Seriously Geeky Sundays prompts!

Hatsune Miku: 13th Anniversary

August 31st marked Hatsune Miku‘s [初音ミク] 13th anniversary! As a fan of Vocaloid music (and genres stemmed from Vocaloid), I decided to put together a post containing 13 songs that come to mind when I think “Miku” and a short bio about each producer. I’ve written the English and Japanese titles for both the songs and the artists of each listing in case anyone will find this useful.
