May is already over and it feels like time is moving so incredibly quickly. It's early June, and so I'm getting together the nerdy things I loved in May and sharing them with others, recommending a few nerd-tastic things to anyone who is interested.
Let's get into my favorite nerdy games, shows and books of May 2016!
Fallout 4: Far Harbor DLC - PC
Far Harbor brought so much new stuff to the table, I'm very impressed. I'm also relieved because it felt like I ran out of content in the base game way too quickly. Despite the lack of content, Fo4 has been my favorite game this year, and I am happy to have such amazing new content to explore in this world.
The visuals, music, and atmosphere are my favorite parts of this content, but there are a multitude of awesome things about it that I won't spoil for anyone who hasn't gotten to play. Just know that if you're wondering whether Far Habor is worth the 34.99 it costs on Steam, my answer is yes.
Pokemon Shuffle - Android
You start by battling Pokemon using the puzzle pieces, before you’re given the chance to catch the Pokemon and use them to battle and catch Pokemon in the following levels. You’re rewarded with level ups, new Pokemon, expert levels, special levels, and the ability to Mega Evolve. I highly recommend this game as a fun time waster and enjoyable way to get your Pokemon fix on the go. Be advised, it does require internet connection to play.
Sailor Moon Drops - Android
That is not even mentioning the beautiful power ups that are included, the free wallpapers you can collect for your phone, and the satisfying sound effects that make the completion of a level feel like an adorable chibi-celebration.
I can see myself playing this game until I utterly can’t stand it anymore, then playing it a little more just for the novelty of Sailor Moon official content. Thank you, Bandai, for your contribution to my nerdy satisfaction.
Star Wars: Clone Wars
The animation and visuals are well done, and the humor is exactly my sense of humor. Everything in the show is canon, because it’s made with George Lucas, and it’s got a really similar vibe to the movies without trying to be an extended Star Wars movie. It’s family friendly, which I think is also a plus, but it’s got a darkness and a depth that I think really makes it enjoyable for anyone. The abundance of strong female characters is a definite positive factor when it comes to my enjoyment of media, so I really appreciate the positive female role models they’ve inserted in Clone Wars. And some of my favorite characters are so well performed and generated in this iteration of the Star Wars universe that I'm falling in love with them all over again.
If you're a Star Wars fan who is not sure whether they should give Clone Wars a try, I think this is a show that can't be missed. And if you're new to Star Wars, I think you'll be able to enjoy this series as well. 5 stars, two thumbs up, new favorite.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone - Laini Taylor
Zombies: Encounters With the Hungry Dead - John Skipp
