A Dame’s Gotta Review – A Look Back At 2018

Hey everyone!

I had originally meant to get this posted before Christmas, but as you all know, that magical time can either be super busy or super relaxed.  Either you’re running around trying to get everything done on time, or if you’re like me, you’re a bit too relaxed with a cup of coffee by your side and an Xbox controller in your hand, knowing that everything is done and the festivities can commence without a hitch.

I wanted to take a few moments and reflect on this year in terms of blogging and look forward to a new year and what blogging adventures may await!  I started this blog back in March, so I’m a bit shy of having a full year to reflect back on, but I feel like the months since I started this blog are a great place to begin.

I found some general end of the year review questions for bloggers and I’ve decided that I will answer them in this post as it may give readers some insight, as well as myself.

Hailey’s Geekmas Holiday Gift Guide

Hey everyone!

For some of us, it’s almost that special time of year. You know, the time of the year where everything seems magical and hectic, all at the same time.  We scramble around and search high and low for the perfect gifts for the special people in our lives.

This is my first holiday season since I started this blog and I’ve always wanted to do a fun gift guide for gamers, geeks, and collectors.  It’s a common thing to see these types of lists on most blogs and websites during the holiday season so I figured that I’d join in on the fun and list some neat gift ideas for the holidays!

I will show some of the products that I enjoy and tell a little about why I think they would make a great gift!

Figure Photo Friday – Vol. 10 – Fall/Halloween Edition 1

There’s something about this time of year that really makes me happy.

It could be the slight chill in the air, the Halloween decorations in the stores, or just simply the need to wear a hoodie every day.  It could also be the smell of pumpkin spice that tends to linger everywhere I visit.

Autumn, and particularly the entire month of October, tend to serve as my favorite time of the year.  From the perfect weather to scary movie marathons on TV, you really can’t beat this time of year!

For this week’s Figure Photo Friday, I decided to do photos with Fall and Halloween themes.  I am planning to do more of these before October ends!

All of the photos were taken and edited by me.

Please enjoy the photos!

Oh Joy! My Adventure So Far In We Happy Few

We Happy Few is a game that I have been anticipating for awhile now and it had been on my “must-play” list since I first saw a trailer for it about two years ago!

After playing the demo on Xbox, I was super excited to get my hands on the full game and that time has finally arrived! (I may or may not have sat and watched for the UPS man for most of the day to deliver my copy.)

We Happy Few was released this past Friday and I spent most of this past weekend exploring around Wellington Wells and taking in the mysterious, beautiful, and sometimes creepy sights.

I am currently about twelve hours into the game and it has been everything that I had been hoping for and more!

Today, I will detail some of my adventure so far and share some in-game screenshots.
