Geek Space

I’ve been writing on this blog, on and off, for about five years now.

Sometimes I’d write about life. Sometimes I’d write about films. Sometimes I’d write about travelling.

But as my life moved in different directions, my usage of this blog changed substantially. During my Masters, in particular, it became less prominent in my life, as I started working on a second blog, New to Comics as part of two of my projects. After I left university, both sites took a bit of a hit. But last year, I’ve made an effort to revive N2C, and now it’s this site’s turn.

Rather than just writing anything and everything, and promptly losing steam, I’m going to curate a collection of reviews and just general thoughts, new and old, based around all the nerdy things I love and have loved.

My geek space, if you will.

POKÉMON: OMEGA RUBY | Nintendo 3DS XL Review

RELEASED: November 28th 2014
DEVELOPED BY: Game Freak
PUBLISHED BY: The Pokémon Company

It’s been a while since I played a Pokémon game. When I was a kid, I started on Pokémon: Yellow – I had the special Pikachu Game Boy Colour and everything. I instantly fell in love with the game, having already become a huge fan of the anime series. Later, I would move on to Pokémon: Crystal, which I also thought was an amazing game. By this point, I was also a bit more savvy about how everything worked. Although I did have the chance to play Pokemon: Ruby, I missed the chance to actually own it myself – instead, I got the remake of Generation I, Pokémon: LeafGreen. Some years later, I would get Pokémon: Pearl on my Nintendo DS. I thought Pearl, which debuted in Generation IV, was a great game, but it would soon be outdone by the Generation II remakes, Pokémon: Heart Gold and Soul Silver. In my mind, that was the apex of Pokémon games, and after playing through them, I fell out of sync with the series, moving on to other things.

More recently, however, after getting back in to Pokémon GO! I decided I wanted to revist the core games. I bought myself a second-hand Nintendo 3DS XL and Pokémon: Omega Ruby alongside it, curious as to how the games had progressed since my youth.
