Almost Done.

Almost Done2017 is almost complete but despair not my #YOLGing friends because you will NEVER be done.  That would normally be a depressing statement but in gaming its one of the best things ever.  We are spoilt for choice with the variety of games there are to play……new shinny…….ohhh, must have.

#YOLG Update. 29th October

AmazingOh my #YOLG!

I’ve updated all the standings today and wow!

DastardlyJabby has hit 50 games complete! PGTips77 and Daddyicken have now completed 30 games and are still going strong.  There are so many of you close to hitting the 30.  Enjoy.


The 30 Zone has been hit.

#YOLG 30 Games CompleteCongratulations to Paul Gaskill, PGTips77 for being the first one to hit 30 Games Complete.

Just over six months in and he’s cracked it.  Knowing Paul he’s going to keep the foot down and I wouldn’t really be surprised if that number doubled.

Well done Paul.  I hope you enjoyed revisiting games long set aside.


Catwoman may not be a virgin.

Telltale BatmanTelltale’s Batman started off with lots of promise with great new graphics and hope of a smoother experience.

Sadly and to the detriment of the game the engine powering this walkabuttonathon is still severely lacking.  It was a stuttering mess in places and at this stage I can’t find myself in a place to forgive Telltale.

Not an apology.

Bongo the SaneHi guys,

This is not an apology.  I’ve been slammed with work projects for the last few months and haven’t had much time to concentrate on the blog or worse than that get another Dirty 30 Minutes recorded.

Fear not, all of your individual pages and completions are still being updated and as of this post, all is accounted for.  Hopefully a Dirty 30 Minutes will be squeezed in soon.

You guys are amazeballs.  The amount of great ‘back catalog’ games you are finishing is fantastic.  I hope you’re having fun with them because that’s the whole purpose of the #YOLG.

Game on!


Do I have bad breath?

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Updated: 12.04.17

Confession:  I have never completed or spent a lot of time with any of the Zelda games.

So, with that statement in mind I’m coming at The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild completely fresh with little knowledge of the lore or mystic built up around this series.

Switch it up

SwitchIn this topsy turvy world not everything makes sense and my purchase of a Nintendo Switch is one of those things.  Do I need it? No.  I could waffle on about how it’s important as a host of the Overseas Connection Podcast that I stay on top with new equipment blaa, blaa, blaa.  I just wanted one.  #dealwithit

New #YOLG Members & Odd Picture of the Week.

Arthur DentHello Yolgers.  It’s been a very busy few weeks for me and this coming week is no different.  So, hang in there, re-listen to some of the older 30 Dirty Minutes Therapy Sessions and when I return from my business trip at the end of the week I’ll reopen the surgery.

You now number 40+ members all working away at a common goal… get them games finished.  It’s been great receiving feedback from you about how much you’ve enjoyed the games you have revisited.  This makes The Year of Living Gamegerously a treat to administer.  Thank you.
