Welcome to JohnHQLD

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 🙂

2021 Gaming Challenges

In 2020, I started the year with some gaming challenges. I didn’t do too badly, all things considered. But, it’s 2021 now, so that means some new gaming challenges! I am a lot better at sticking with gaming challenges than New Year’s Resolutions. Guess I will always be a gamer at heart!

It’s 2021!

2021 Is here – welcome to the new year! I hope you had an amazing break. And I hope you like some of the visual updates I have made to the site! That’s not all I have been doing though. Come on in and I will tell you what I have been up to during the holiday break!

Time for the Holidays! See you in 2021!

So fresh off my personal holidays, it is time to shut down the site for a little while. Well, more than a little while this round. But I have a lot of stuff to put in place for 2021! While I am busy getting all this done, I thank you once again for sticking with me for another year and can’t wait to show you what I have planned for next year. So while I am doing all that, I hope you have a great end of 2020!

Bugsnax Review

When I saw the Bugsnax trailer in the PS5 showcase earlier this year, I was intrigued. While I haven’t played Octodad, Young Horses previous game, I am aware of its almost cult status. And getting the game included with PlayStation Plus meant that I just had to play it! What did I think? Well, that’s what the review is for!

Last Week’s Gaming

So long holidays On the plus side, I got in a heap of gaming! In my two weeks off, I managed 4 Platinum trophies. Can’t be unhappy with that! But I also got to do some more Clank! Legacy and a new treasure game. Come on in and check out Last Week’s Gaming!

Scooby-Doo! Escape from the Haunted Mansion Review

At home escape room games have blown up in popularity this year for obvious reasons. Narrative adventure games have generally been popular as well. But how can you get the best of both worlds without the story feeling forced? Fit it into a theme that already integrates the two! Scooby-Doo! Escape from the Haunted Mansion has jumped to the top of two genres of game styles for me, come in and see why.

Choosing a Gaming Computer – Part 1 – The Monitor

Next-gen consoles, new graphics cards and CPUs, gaming got really complicated quickly! With so many options out there coupled with stock issues for almost all tech, I thought I would do a guide for what you should be looking at for a gaming PC. First off, the part that is always overlooked even though it shows you everything – The Monitor! The screen you want to game on should be used to tell you what type of computer you want to buy/build.
