Year End Wrap-Up: Starting 2017 on Mt. Silver

On the summit of Mt. Silver

I can’t believe  it’s been over a year since I first started Nice Job Breaking It, Hero and it has been such an amazing journey, full of so much growth! In my first Year End Wrap-Up post, I dubbed 2016 my New Bark year, because this time last year, I was just starting my blogging journey here on WordPress. I was new to all of this, back then I was racking in a cool 10-20 views a day… and let me tell you, it was discouraging sometimes. There were days when my site didn’t get any views at all! Ya’ll I wanted to give up so many times, especially when Grad School was kicking my ass, but I didn’t! I fought every step of the way, I wrote, I networked, I put in the time and the results blew me away!

A Year in Games: My Favorite Games of 2016

First, I’m baaaaack! Well, sort of… this is one of the two year end posts I told you all I’d be writing, I’m just posting it a day early since I’ll be on a plane back to DC on the 30th…

A little while ago, my dear friend Leafy asked me if I planned on doing a top games list for 2016 and at the time I gave her what I thought was a pretty solid, Nah… I’m terrible with lists and schedules so I go out of my way to avoid them when I can. But, as we got closer to the end of the year I found myself thinking about all the games I’d played throughout the year; the good, the bad, and the meh titles and before I knew it this post kind of wrote itself! So here I am, a few days before the start of a new year running through my favorite games of 2016…

Now, I will say this in advanced, not all of these games were released in 2016, most were, but there are a few titles that were released prior to this year… Also, I am not including the Voltage games I played (save Liar), because I plan on doing a separate list for that. Finally, before ya’ll start grabbing your torches and pitchforks because your favorite game isn’t on the list, or you don’t agree with my picks, remember this is my list, if you have suggestions feel free to tell me about them in the comments section (I am always open to game suggestions)! *claps hands* Let’s get this show on the road!!

[Announcement] Home for the Holidays…

As many of you know I am home for the holidays and if you didn’t know, you should really follow me on Twitter, because that’s pretty much all I’ve been talking about (Yuri on Ice aside)… Anyhow, I’m telling ya’ll this because I’m not going to be very active for the next week or so.

Since I don’t get the opportunity to go home very often, I’m going to use this time to hang out with my family. However, that doesn’t mean I won’t be blogging… I am currently working on two new post series for the new year and a ton of new content for you guys to enjoy in 2017! So, don’t worry, everything will be back on track in January. *ahem* There will be no new Fangirl Moment posts until January 6th, 2017 and there won’t be a new Last Week Today post until January 1st, 2017!

However, I will be posting two end of the year recap posts, on December 30th and 31st so look forward to that!! I’ll still be around on WordPress and Twitter, so feel free to drop me a line if you want to chat… just don’t expect any reviews anytime soon, since I am still playing catch up!

My Top 10 Favorite Generation Five Pokemon

It’s been awhile, but I’m back again with yet another Top 10 Pokémon list! This time around, I’ll be covering my Top Ten Gen  5 Pokémon. So let’s get this party started…

The fifth generation games renewed my love of the Pokémon series! Both Black and White and their sequels had a much more dramatic narrative than any of the previous Pokemon titles. In terms of storytelling, the fifth generation games were some of the best Pokemon games to date… excluding Pokémon Sun and Moon. However, I have to say that I was not a huge fan of all of the Pokemon introduced in these games… Out of the 156 new Pokémon introduced in Black and White, I really only liked a handful of them. In fact, my team in Black mostly consisted of Pokémon from previous generations, so this wasn’t an easy list to write. But, this was a much easier list to write that the Gen Four list, so silverlinings…

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Dec. 11th to Dec. 17th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! This week has kind of been a blur, now that the holidays are on the horizon… So, I’ve been trying to catch up on a few things before I go home for the holidays! But, the universe seems to be conspiring against me going home for Christmas, because it’s super hard to get a ticket!

I might have to bike home or bust!
