Check out these amazing realisations of “Kanto in real life.”

If you are a fan of the Pokémon games, these beautiful pieces of art will take you on a journey through Kanto, and remind you of how epic that first pair of games really were. Starting in the iconic Pallet Town, digital artist and game developer, Simone Maendl has been working her way through the region where the series began. Using inspiration from the real world, Simone is building a version of Kanto that is more believable than any shown before, in my opinion. Looking at this artwork takes me back to a childhood walking along rivers, imagining there were Pokemon everywhere, and I love that. You can follow the rest of the journey on Simone’s Instagram: @simonemaendl.

What does your perfect night with a video game consist of?

What does your perfect night with a video game consist of?

In the past week we “celebrated” (🎉) Video Game Day, and while nobody really cared it got me thinking about how I enjoy video games. It became clear pretty quickly that I have an ideal way I like to partake in my favourite past time, and for no particular reason, apart from self-indulgence, I’m going to tell you what that is.

What do you do while the game you are waiting to play updates?​

What do you do while the game you are waiting to play updates?​

Back when I was a kid, it was my mum trailing me from shop to shop that kept me from playing a brand new game I’d purchased on the same trip, not instal times and updates. After that, it was the 45-minute car trip home, but back then we had the manual to keep us ticking over, long gone are those days. So, my question to you is what do you do while waiting for your games to update? Continue reading “What do you do while the game you are waiting to play updates?​”

In the wee hours of​ the morning, Pokémon fans got a big helping of new stuff to be excited about – here’s a round-up.

Last night I stayed up late to watch this press event, realised it was probably in Japanese and decided to just follow along on Twitter instead. Then my internet gave up so I couldn’t write about it. Basically, I wasted sleeping time, which I’m not overly happy about. What I am so glad about is all this new Pokémon news!

The Big List ’17: Best of the bunch

This year I kept a list of every video game I played or went on to finish, which I creatively called The Big List. In this post, I am going to talk a little about the five games that I enjoyed the most. For the sake of variety, I have ruled out the games that made it onto The Bulb’s Game of the Year list, whi.

The Bulb’s Game of the Year picks…

The Bulb’s Game of the Year picks…

Over the course of 2017 many games that have been getting high praise were released, but I’ve got to be honest, I did not play an awful lot for any serious amount of time. I hardly finished any of those I started, but that is because I got sucked into one world in particular. Just because I didn’t play a lot of games doesn’t mean I didn’t game a lot. So, my first Game of the Year list is short. Read on to find out my top three and which game took up all my time in 2017. Continue reading “The Bulb’s Game of the Year picks…”

Facts and thoughts that spawned from The Big List ’17

Facts and thoughts that spawned from The Big List ’17

I kept a list of every game I played or went on to complete in 2017. Sorry, if that came across as a little exasperated it is because I’ve written it into every post I’ve drafted this week. It’s just, in trying to breathe a bit of life back into this blog, the only thing I really have to talk about right now is that god damn list. Here are some random facts and thoughts, presented horribly, that came out of keeping it. Continue reading “Facts and thoughts that spawned from The Big List ’17”
