Bits of Interest

Some people would call this News I suppose.  For me, it really is just whatever grabs my fancy, and probably not the most timely of announcements.  So Bits of Interest it is 🙂

Site Updates and Upcoming 2020 Plans

JohnHQLD Site Background

Hi everyone 🙂 So after my week off, I think I have the direction of the site sorted. It will be in stages, but that is because of the amount of work I want to do on the site experience. So today, I want to give you an update on what I have planned for the rest of the year.

Site reevaluations and big changes coming – just not soon.

JohnHQLD Site Background

So I slowed down to 3 pieces a week and simultaneously planning new projects and extra work. It isn’t working. So, while I am not shutting down the site, a longer break and cull is in the work for a little while.

JohnHQLD.com will still be a thing, but there are a lot of site changes coming. What are they? I need time to plan out and time manage to be sure.

But I hope whatever happens it works for us all. Have a great weekend everyone!

Pandemic Legacy Season 3 is actually Season 0!

Pandemic Legacy Season 1

We have known from the Pandemic Legacy creators Rob Daviau and Matt Leacock that a third game was coming. Last night, a teaser trailer popped up on YouTube for this game, but it’s not what we thought!

Pandemic Legacy Season 3 is Pandemic Legacy Season 0 and will serve as a prequel to complete the series.

PAX Aus/PAX West 2020 Merch and Shelfie Stacker!

Shelfie Stacker Cover Art

Another Wednesday, another round-up on things I am looking forward to! Last week, the Kickstarter for a fun game idea called Shelfie Stacker got bumped for PAX 2020 news. Today, PAX merch is available to order. I didn’t want to push talking about Shelfie Stacker again, so today I talk about two things that are making me spend my money!

So. PAX Aus 2020 online anybody?

PAX Online

So, a very short one today. Wednesdays I talk about things I am looking forward to, usually games on Kickstarter. Yesterday, PAX Aus 2020 was officially postponed until 2021. But that doesn’t mean that I still can’t be looking forward to PAX! I wrote this thinking Tuesday was Wednesday and thought I would float a way of celebrating PAX online this year. Glad it was only Tuesday because PAX Online 2020 is real.

The PlayStation 5 Reveal Event Thoughts

PlayStation 5 Lineup

So the PlayStation 5 was revealed this morning (Australian time). I got out of bed early and enjoyed the reveal. There is a lot to be excited about, even if not a lot of concrete information came out.

But the information that was revealed is pretty impressive – and divisive. So as no one else on the internet has given their two cents on the topic, I thought today I would give my thoughts on the PlayStation 5 reveal.

Castle Panic Deluxe is live on Kickstarter!

Sorry, I am a little late today folks – I thought it was Tuesday! But today an old favourite of mine Castle Panic hit Kickstarter for a new Deluxe version! New plastic castle, mini’s for enemies and wooden tokens. You can even just upgrade your existing copy! Check out more on the site!
