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 🙂

Last Week’s Gaming

Last Week’s Gaming is back for 2021! Today I reveal an open secret in why I skip some games I play in there roundups, but also talk a lot about the video game that pulled me in after finishing Cyberpunk 2077 – Immortals: Fenyx Rising. The planned games day last Saturday got postponed, but that doesn’t mean I have no board games to talk about!

Cyberpunk 2077 – Separating the Controversy from the Game

Tomorrow I am reviewing Cyberpunk 2077. I am eager to share my thoughts on the game, and my adventures in Night City. But to say that there has been a lot of controversy and attention to things surrounding the game would be an understatement. Some of this is deserved, but not everything the headlines say I believe is completely true. Buckle in though – this is a long read!

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!
