Welcome to JohnHQLD.com! I’m JohnHQLD, and this is my little corner of the internet. Hopefully, you will come and join us as we share our love of gaming.
Mainly I will be talking about things that catch my interest, primarily in gaming. Board Games, Video Games, Puzzles – I don’t mind. As long as we are all having fun, that’s all I worry about.
If there is anything you would like to discuss or would like my thoughts on, leave me a note on the Facebook page, or @JohnHQLD me on Twitter or Instagram! Follow me on Instagram if you also want to see lots of pics of our pets as well 🙂
March seems to be a month of a lot of my old favourites getting some TLC in various ways. Remasters, sequels, new platforms – in one way or another, I will be able to play some old favourites or play them on a platform I couldn’t before. What do I mean? Well you will have to check out my March Highlights to see!
The workaround for the delays in my PC is almost in place. I just need to get through this week and tweak any setups. And just in time too – Bravely Default II comes out this week! But that’s future games. This is Last Week’s Gaming! Again, not a lot, but I did get in some gaming and I have more detailed thoughts this week.
Looking around for what to review, and my eyes kept focusing on my PlayStation 5. OK, it was because I just wanted to kick back and play games, but while I am trying to write up PC guides, I thought why not review this console? So after a film review that wasn’t a review, welcome to a console review that isn’t quite a review either!
Saturday I took a rest day after a long week. Lucky for me, Saturday was also the release for the Nicolas Cage film Willy’s Wonderland. After watching the trailer, I decided that I had to sit back and enjoy some B grade goodness. What Rabbit and I experienced was not the mindless laugh we were expecting, but a surprisingly enjoyable (but still B grade) film that I can see becoming a cult classic.
Istanbul is a game that I enjoy, but don’t get to the table often. In fact, it’s so rare, I can’t find Istanbul the Board Game in my library, only the Dice game! But the last few weeks after trying the Digital Edition, my love for Istanbul the Board game has been rekindled to the point it’s almost my default laptop game while recovering at night!
