A Survivors Guide to Dead By Daylight

In August, Playstation Plus users were blessed enough to have Dead By Daylight free to download. Which meant a lot of new players were installing and trying it out blindly with no real idea of what they were doing. Which can put a lot of people off, not knowing how to play something can get frustrating quick. Most online games are quite straight forward, mainly with the objective of killing an opponent or something similar. Dead By Daylight is a little bit more detailed within it's game rules. But I promise you the moment you get the hang of what is actually going on, it's a game you can play for days, weeks, months, years? Considering I've been playing it for over a year now, it really is an online game you can come back to at any point and still find each game you play challenging, but very fun! I thought I'd give a quick guide to any of you who managed to grab the game for free this year but have hesitated to play it, hopefully I can help you understand it better! I'll keep it simple. Grab some snacks and lets get stuck in.

Spyro: Year of the Dragon, Quite Literally

I would first like to give a shoutout to Crash Bandicoot. For giving us a remaster, throwing us all back to our childhoods, I really feel like it gave Spyro even more of a push to do the same. I love that we are living in a world where our childhood memories can be bought into adulthood, in all of its remastered beauty. Though playing classing games have such a nostalgic, retro feel, I’ll never say no to more video games in my life.

Silly question, but who’s excited to have that purple boy back in their lives? We'd all have the game in our hands if it hadn't been pushed further until November, not bothered by that fact at all... Nope. Not me. I'm kidding (or am I?), I know they did the right thing, sometimes making perfection just takes that little bit longer. I know it'll be so worth the wait. Like a lot of people, I grew up with the Spyro games. I wasn't blessed enough to own all three, but I was always grateful with anything I got as a kid. I faintly remember the first two Spyro games... Which if anything makes me even more excited to go back and remember everything I’d forgotten about. But Spyro 3 is 100% where my heart is. It’s the first game I actually completed, and probably my most re-played game of all time. I’ve lost count how many times I’ve gone through it start to finish and I can honestly say I still have so much fun every single time I play it.

If you didn’t have a chance to play Spyro when you were younger and are trying to decide whether to give the Trilogy a go this time around, I thought I’d give you a couple reasons why I think it’s the best decision you’ll make this year...

It’s been 84 years...

Hello? Can anybody hear me? It feels kinda empty around here... Where did all of my posts go? WHO STOLE MY CONTENT? Oh yeah, that was me. I’ve been wanting to do this for the longest time now, the struggle to write a new post has been real. If this is your first time reading my blog, I had been frequently blogging for around 5 years, as time went by I gradually posted less until I just stopped altogether. I’ve always loved having my little blog on the internet, I can’t say whether my writing was particularly interesting for anybody to read but I just loved to write. That’s all that mattered really, and I think I forgot how much I did enjoy it and because of that, I just disappeared from the world of blogging.

I guess this is my attempt of a comeback, including the disposal of some posts and hiding the rest in my drafts, I think that way I’ll be able to have a clean slate, fresh start kind of thing. I haven’t really planned much for my return, I’m kind of excited to just see what ideas come flowing through my brain. Or y’know, I could just completely overthink everything and return back to the comforts of my bed to hide there forever. It’s normally the latter, I won’t lie. Let’s try and change that shall we? Though my bed does sound super wonderful and comfy and warm and safe right about now... 

If you’re still reading, congratulations to you, I truly appreciate you sticking around. I’m no professional writer and I’ll never claim to be one, I just want to have fun writing again and hopefully anyone who decides to read will too! 

I suppose I should of made an introduction at the start really, better late than never! 
My name is Vicki, I’m 23 years old and I’m from the West Midlands in England. I have a huge love for Video Games. PS4 being my console of choice, but also dabbling in the world of Xbox and Nintendo. There’s no competing around here, I love all consoles. (BUY A PS4) I mean... Uh... I also love watching Movies and binging TV Shows on Netflix. Who doesn’t? I’ll hopefully get into more detail in future posts about my hobbies and such, I hope you enjoy the garbage I create on my blog, I will be eternally grateful if you do so. 

(Also, if you got the movie reference in the title, kudos to you. If you didn’t get it, where the hell have you been?)
