After a long discussion at our rail station, Steve and I decided we would follow in the footsteps of last year, and go the Wapping Route to get to the Tobacco Docks for EGX Rezzed. However, in what is quickly becoming Rezzed tradition, a certain London and south eastern railway region operator caused us to miss our first train to Wapping due to travelling at the speed of molasses for a very painful twenty minutes inching through South London, but we got there in the end. And I know I complain about this every year, but the signage at Wapping station for the event could have been better (or even, any kind of signage to point you in the right direction upon leaving the station) – although at least getting to the Tobacco Dock is virtually a straight line down Wapping Lane!

And of course, what do I find myself doing when I have a random evening free? Again, I have a large amount of Froakie to dispose of, and I rather think that someone might like to receive one, than my leaving them to languish in a PC box somewhere.

Annnnnd, I’m still trying to offload my Froakie army that I’m building up.

Well, there’s no harm in going back for a round two of Wonder Trading is there, right? I had a few more Rotom to get rid of, and then it was dumping my Froakie collection I’ve been breeding, looking for a perfect Hidden Ability one.

So, after many years, I finally managed to get my 3DS to connect to the WiFi. Being a major fan of the Pokémon series, I sought to take advatange of finally getting online to take part in game on stuff like trading and battling Pokémon online. As it turned out, I was very quickly distracted by the Wonder Trade facility, where you can stick up a Pokémon for trade, and the game matches you up with another player online completely at random, with no idea of what you’re going to get.

After the release of Pokémon Sun and Moon in 2016, they were followed up by, somewhat controversially, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon in November 2017. Although these games are standalone games in the 7th Generation, they have faced claims that they are the ‘finished’ versions of the original Sun and Moon, and were released as enhanced version as a quick cash cow. However, were there enough deviations in the newer game’s plot and Pokémon distribution to justify a second release of the 7th Gen?

2017 was a bit of a hit and miss year for gaming, I felt. Games tended to be rather good… or rather rubbish. However, I do feel as though it was a good final year for the 3DS and PC, at the very least, with games from both dominating in our Top Ten for 2017. Continue reading Karen and Steve’s Top Ten Games of 2017
With the UK release of Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon last week, I thought I’d take a quick look back over the OST of Pokémon Sun/Moon and see if I could nail down a favourite ten. Which I admit now, I found somewhat difficult to do, as I didn’t think much of the Sun/Moon OST was that standout, compared to earlier games.

With the release of the latest Pokémon games yesterday, Ultra Sun, I thought I’d have a look back over Pokémon Sun and Moon, released just over a year ago.

Well, this year, myself and Steve decided not to go the Shadwell DLR route in order to get to the event (probably because we missed… our Lewisham train), and so ended up having to go into Central London and back out from there – however, despite it requiring two changes and getting off at Wapping rather than Shadwell DLR, the journey was comparable to what we’ve done before. Slightly quicker, possibly, this time we were there before 10am. However, we (once again) had the same problem with regards to signage – once out at Wapping station, there was nothing to direct you to the event. However, as it was literally a straight path down Wapping Lane, almost, it was fairly easy.
