My new favourite nerd heaven, Fantayzia Designs, invited me to play with their retro games consoles and check out their nostalgic treasures. I sat for a few hours and have to say it’s now my absolute favourite for nerdy nostalgia and creations at FarGo Village, Coventry.
2019 is set to be a big year for movies! Checking out what’s coming up I thought I’d pick my selection of my most anticipated movies of the year. Some of these I am really worried about! I just don’t see how they can be good, but I hope they are!
It was lovely to finally get to a smaller convention in 2018. I am used to going to the MCM Comic Con in Birmingham or London, and sometimes they can be a little overwhelming. However, at Stratford Comic Con* the room was bustling with the same lovely atmosphere of a larger con, but without the annoying queues! There are always perks to visiting a smaller comic con…
I’ve always loved Sci-Fi but I never feel like I have seen enough! I wanted to explore as much as possible, from the first Sci-Fi Movie “Le Voyage Dans Le Lune” (1902), right through to the latest releases and sub-genres that have expanded throughout the years. Because, Sci-Fi always makes us question;
Where will science take us? What’s going to happen to us? What’s NEXT?
I’ve already considered what makes a good Sci-Fi story, and so I started doing a little research into the release dates of movies (and some extra reading). I realised that there is a pattern in what’s happening in society and science, and the types of movies that became popular at the time.
Welcome to Part 2 of my guide on Where to start with Anime! Well done for making it this far. If you missed the first instalment then go back to Part 1 HERE for the Dramatic and the Dark ones.
Depending on your mood, something intense might not be where you’re at. Sometimes, you might just want a good cry, or a laugh, or something entirely lighthearted.
This list is just for you.
So many of us want to break into more nerdy card games and geeky board games, but where to start? I am quite lucky in that I have a great group of friends who introduced me into this world of geeky board games and card games! Sometimes you can’t commit enough time to a full Dungeons and Dragons campaign (although I did for the first time this week and it was AMAZING). Sometimes an awfully complicated strategy game can also take hours to set up.
Sometimes you just need to start small, and aim high.
I can’t pretend that I am a connoisseur of anime, but I feel like I’ve at least watched enough (about 30 or so) different anime movies and shows to give you an insight into where to start with anime.
Anime is a style rather than a genre and so many people seem to mistake anime as a genre of movie rather than just a form. Just like other styles, it all depends on your mood as to what you can cope with or feel like watching – whether it be action, romance or something entirely different. Part 1 below is all about the dramatic or the dark anime, for those in the mood for action!
As you may have seen previously, I did a quick review of 90s fads and playground games which may or may not have withstood the test of time. I felt so much love and nostalgia that the post at the time ended up being huge! So much so that I needed to split it into parts, which I have just got round to posting so… onto part 2, TV and Tech!
So last weekend, I dressed as Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time for MCM Comic Con. This day was pretty significant to me in lots of ways. First, I wore a costume to a convention for the first time. Second, I met one of the YouTubers I admire. And third, I had some kinda weird exhaustion breakdown. All fun!
Being Princess Bubblegum
Onto the good stuff! Being Princess Bubblegum was exciting and a bit of a rush. I have dressed up for so many parties with friends in the past, but never played a character at a place like MCM Comic Con. I felt like I wanted to impress people and that also added some pressure!
2017 has seen the return of 2 major 90’s games. Crash Bandicoot and Sonic Mania have outsold their previous counterparts within their franchises. These games do so, not by offering anything new, but revamping the old. If we can gauge what these games offer it might give us an insight into understanding nostalgia that is instilled in us.
