Pokémon Go

I have been playing this app on and off since its release date on July 6th. I even bought the Pokémon Go Plus on release day to help me play the game. I have even bought some of its items through the store using the free Google Play money I earned.

Having been a fan of the Pokémon series since its release in the United States, I was excited when this game was first announced. While it hasn’t fully lived up to expectation, it still is a fun game to play when I am traveling.

With the valentines event happening, I am starting to play the game again and look forward to any other events they are going to release.

Hearthstone

Hearthstone is a game I am been getting into more and more recently. While I am not big into the lore of Warcraft, I enjoy playing as the many different characters the game has to offer. Currently, my main deck is using Jaina Proudmoore. I have yet to purchase any of the expansion packs yet, but I will most likely purchase them in the future.

In the past, I used to play World of Warcraft after a generous Christmas gift of the battle pack with every expansion pack to date. Currently, I am only missing Legion, as I have let my subscription lapse. In the future, I wish to get more into the lore of Warcraft and play more World of Warcraft to accompany my Hearthstone playing.

When I was younger I played the Pokémon Trading Card Game on the Game Boy Color, so this is part of the reason I like playing Hearthstone. I also reacquired the game on the Nintendo 3DS to relive part of my childhood, but more on that later.

February in Runescape

Jagex released a list of upcoming updates for the month of February for Runescape.

6th – 15 Year Veteran’s Cape/Invention Tools/Valentine’s Event
Having played this game for over 10 years, I can’t wait for this cape to be released.

13th – Valentine’s Timed Event/Double XP Weekend/Game Jam Weekend
I am not a huge fan of the time events with cosmetic rewards, but I will be participating in this event just due to the weekend it is on. The weekend of double experience will be an eventful one, hopefully I can knock out a bunch of levels.

20th – Skillcape Perks
This update seems very interesting. Being able to harness extra ability while not wearing skill capes seems very beneficial.

27th – Mystery Quest
I don’t know much of the quest but the lore recently in the quests have been superb.
