My Most Anticipated Media of 2017

So I’m a little late to this list – plan was for this to go up at the start of the year but we all know how things go sometimes. 2017 has been a blur so far it seems, but as we step into the second month I felt it appropriate to finally share some of the things I’m most looking forward to in the coming months!

1. Mass Effect: Andromeda (March 21)
This game that I’ve been ready to love since it was first announced long ago is actually a mere two months away now! The long over adieu follow up to Bioware’s original Mass Effect trilogy, Andromeda follows a group looking for a potential new home far from their own galaxy. With every released trailer I’m more and more committed to my next space adventure and I may or may not have already started planning my Ryder internally.

2. Wonder Woman (June 2)

It was pretty world changing for me, to see that there was a female superhero in the same league (literally) as household names Superman and Batman. Since growing up, my devotion to the Amazon warrior has only grown.

Girl Meets Game: Spooky Games for Halloween!

I truly can’t believe I haven’t posted anything Halloween related here on the blog yet. It’s a favorite holiday of mine for so many reasons, but this year it feels as though it really snuck up on me. The exciting news is that though I’ve been slacking here, I did manage to put together a fun little post for my first ever guest blog entry over at Gabriella’s Nerdette At Large! In it I discussed some of my Halloween traditions, including my favorite films and television shows to watch. Give it a read here!

In addition, I do want to talk spooky video games! Now, my list here is probably going to be pretty tame compared to most as I just don’t have a lot of experience playing horror games. But I do think these are some fun games with Halloween vibes that a wide audience can enjoy.
