The Myth Of Game Development

The biggest myth of Game Development is that it is mostly about design. The truth is there is a lot more to that. Game development requires a lot of object oriented programming as it is focused on user experience as well as as designing levels meant for a player. Hence it requires a lot of… Continue reading The Myth Of Game Development

Requiem

I was expecting more when it came to the story. There were moments which really grabbed my attention but those overall had been few and far between. The story jumps around too much and the writing to me had been difficult to understand. It didn't give a good picture and was incredibly unimaginative and difficult… Continue reading Requiem

The Promised Neverland

Contrary to what many thought I never really got into the series. It got good then it didn't. And after a while I just didn't care about the series enough. It had a unique premise, I'll give it that but it also brought a lot of problems too. At times it just dragged. The story… Continue reading The Promised Neverland

Escape From Houdini

I was expecting something more exciting. The story had managed to entertain me, and it still does but I feel that the middle was just too bloated. One thing that kept this series from feeling the drag had been that each book presented a different a mystery. Something fresh. Stalking Jack the Ripper in my… Continue reading Escape From Houdini

What is wrong with YA?

I went through a phase of my life where all YA books I read was often terrible. For lack of better word. And it's as though YA had lost most of the charm that defined it for what it was. Or that it is just me, where I grew as a person enough to feel… Continue reading What is wrong with YA?

Wildcard

This was okay. It wasn't anything that really surprised. It entertained all right but it never managed to really get me to keep on reading. The best part about the story had been the subplot of Sasuke. That was incredibly interesting and the ending surprising. I liked that completion because it managed to surprise me… Continue reading Wildcard

Especially with how I turned to beta reading and began to review books less. Next year will see… Continue reading 2018: Reflection

November: Slowing Down

I'm slowing down this month because I just can't find anything good to read recently. And school has gotten the better of me, so I'm just slowing down on updates until I figure out what to do. Or maybe a break from books can help things to become fresh again. I will still be doing… Continue reading November: Slowing Down

The Flames of Florence

It wasn't what I thought. I thought that it might be a story about Leonardo da Vinci. And about Renaissance Italy which had been something that I am fascinated by for quite a while. Nothing like it occurs here. I didn't like the way it never seemed to know what it really wants at the… Continue reading The Flames of Florence

Playing By Fire

For such a story, I was more interested in the war parts. Which I agree as well. Lorenzo's story was more important than Julia's at any point. Because of how it had affected later on. I liked the dark legacy of Inciendo and who it meant. But I didn't like mostly everything else. It doesn't… Continue reading Playing By Fire

Smoke In The Sun

For a series pitched as feminist, it surprisingly isn't. It also fails to be a Japanese historical fantasy. In many many ways as well. Most of the Shoguns sometimes didn't have power, same about the Emperor. If this actually tried to explore the situation as it was, which will have been fun to read. But… Continue reading Smoke In The Sun

Personality and Me

Recently, I took a personality test. I got an ENTP-A. Honestly, I thought that it was one of the most accurate even if I wasn't a complete fit. But for most part, it explained why I behave the way I do. This has never been clearer as to what kind of person I truly am.… Continue reading Personality and Me

What is wrong with Throne Of Glass?

As of recently, I have all but steered clear of any work from Sarah J Maas, mostly because of how disappointing it has been for me as a reader. Here is why I believe it stopped clicking with me after the third book, with me disliking Queen of Shadows, dropping Empire of Storms and steering… Continue reading What is wrong with Throne Of Glass?

Should Writers Major In Other Disciplines?

My answer is yes. They should, they should make an effort to learn about anything that they exhibit an interest in. Mostly because of the fact that if you're going to just study writing, you're going to run out of ideas pretty soon. And the fact that for me, I just have plenty of other… Continue reading Should Writers Major In Other Disciplines?
