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.

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.

Monthly Summary: August 2020

August seems to have flown by even faster than the rest of the year. What have I even done this month? Good question. I’ve still been in a bit of a gaming lull if I’m honest and I can count the amount of games I’ve played on one hand… That being said, I’ve got big plans for the next few months.

Seriously Geeky Sundays: Animation

This is my first entry to the Seriously Geeky Sundays prompt created by Heather at Just Geeking By, with this week’s theme created and hosted by Megan at A Geeky Gal. I thought this animation theme would be a great introduction to join in with the SGS community and I hope to contribute more in the near future.

Monthly Summary: July 2020

July has been quiet on the gaming front due to my lack of enthusiasm for gaming. I’ve been so excited to play Collar X Malice for months so I put off starting anything heavy until my copy arrived. Unfortunately, my copy ended up arriving a week late so I feel like I’ve wasted a lot of time just sitting in limbo. However, we’re back on track and there’s actually a lot of games I’m looking forward to playing after my recent dip.

The Steam Games Festival: Summer Edition

During June, Steam featured a selection of free demos for upcoming games as part of The Steam Games Festival: Summer Edition which ran alongside the Steam Summer Sale. During this time, myself and WesleyWhale decided to try out a handful of games to write about, however, this handful quickly became two handfuls and before long, it turned into a list as long as my arm. In the  end, we settled on a list of 12 games to try (all displayed in the header) consisting of a variety of styles and genres. After playing through each of the demos, we wrote all about our experiences in this post with a couple of screenshots to accompany our reviews. So, let’s get started!

Monthly Summary: May 2020

It’s all been very odd with the lockdown still in full force, but with businesses planning to open up again next month, it’s looking like things are moving forward in the UK, but I guess nobody really knows how it’s going to pan out. Meanwhile, from the shelter of my home (that I’ve only left 3 times to go on 3 short walks in the past 11 weeks), I’ve been putting a lot of hours into a variety of games – although I seem to really be enjoying visual novels this month. I’ve also noticed a trend in my gaming patterns that show I’m actually playing games that I’ve bought recently rather than letting them all gather virtual dust in my backlog!

So let’s take a look back at everything I’ve been up to during May:

Top 10 Anime OP/ED Songs #AniMay 2020

It’s not uncommon for anime to have memorable theme songs. These themes can either be written with a certain series in mind, sometimes with contributions from the voice cast, or it could even be an existing song that fits the desired style pretty well already. Either way, there can be some real gems found here, all written using a vast range of musical styles.

I’ve been wanting to share some of my favourite anime songs for a while now, so what better time to do so than during #AniMay! I’ve made a list of 10 anime OPs and/or EDs that I would consider to be my all time favourite anime songs (only one song per anime).

So what will come out on top? Let’s find out!
