It’s been a while…

 

A year in fact, and my life is considerably different in all areas; relationship, work and home, have all changed for me. It’s been a very challenging year, I may reflect on it at some point in this space. But for now, I’m feeling a revamp is in order, as well as some new content, things that may interest you if you have been around this part of the internet before;

  • The latest Guildwars 2 expansion is almost upon us!
  • I’ve switched class preference in Hearthstone from Rogue to Druid.
  • I’ve recently started playing Destiny 2 on PS4. (Review spoiler alert…I think it’s over-rated)
  • I’ve started a couple of new cross stitch patterns.
  • And have learned that budgeting is great for helping my anxiety levels, especially now that I am living alone.

If there’s something you want to hear more about, or would like me to type a piece on, let me know in the comments or tweet @kezla.

I’ll be back soon 🙂

Birthday Fun.

Knitted Manatee

My birthday is obviously one of my favourite times of year, this year was no exception. Firstly, my Nan knitted me a manatee. Manatees are my favourite animals, and I have never seen a knitted one before, this is definitely a special gift!

Lowery Stand

Then after much research finding discount codes, I was lucky enough to secure a Lowery stand from my boyfriend. I will feature this in a seperate blog post in future, but for now, to anyone thinking of taking the plunge, I would say go for it. (But research some discount codes for SewandSo or another online retailer first!)

Space Kez

My brother took me on an adventure to the “Above and Beyond” exhibition at the National Maritime Museum. It features exhibits on the latest developments in aerospace and space travel research, flying cars, reusable space rockets and elevators into space!

New Space Frontiers

Whilst there I treated myself to a book that covered these wonderful aspects of Science and Engineering in more detail, and a Nebula bookmark 🙂

EGX 2014.

1. Toryanse

This, was one of the games I loved the look of most at EGX. Backtracking slightly, EGX (Eurogamer expo) was a gaming event that took place in London this past weekend, and despite the big guns being there (Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo) The areas I spent the most time in, were the 2 indie game sections, the games there fueled my passion for gaming even further.

So to the games…Firstly Toryanse, the Studio Ghibli style art was what first caught my eye, as well as the cat, the thing that pleases me most however, is that this is a point and click adventure game. Within the game all information is presented via speech bubbles and illustrative thought. You can follow the game’s development and find out more by clicking here.

2. Big Pharma

Ever wanted to manage your own pharmaceutical company? I know I have…manage side effects, discover new active ingredients, battle with rival companies, question your own moral compass, and of course, develop drugs, in this sim due for release in 2015. For more info, click here.

3. A light in chorus

A Light in Chorus

Easily the most beautiful game I saw at EGX was A light in chorus. This is an exploration game in which you move around as a reconfigurable swarm of particles, taking on the shapes of the things around you, illuminatiing other things to explore. This is a game that really has to be seen, so I’ll embed a little preview below. For more info on the game click here.

Those were my 3 favourite finds from EGX,

Kezla.com turns 3!

Sam
Sam playing with his PS3.

3 years and 102 posts and this is where we are. Firstly a massive thank you to everyone who visits, reads and comments. I’ve had blogs of some description for about 10 years, but have never taken the time, or the care, quite like I have around here, and it’s definitely worth the effort and research. You can find my very first posts here.

As you may have noticed, I’ve started to branch out of the realms of gaming and into some crafty endeavours and lifestyle type posts, these come from my desire to share my crafty stuff with people, and the questions and requests I get on Facebook and Twitter govern the lifestyle type posts. This will always be a blog primarily about gaming (although that was difficult when my PS3 died!) but I will share topics and content about my other favourite hobbies here as well.

When not typing here, I can be found chatting about games with you all on Twitter and sharing stitching pictures on Instagram, I really enjoy interacting with everyone on both sites, and have found some awesome gamers to discuss the latest releases, gaming politics and retro classics with. Here’s to another 3 years! 🙂
