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...
