The Liebster Award: Discover New Blogs!

I’ve been nominated for a Liebster Award!

Liebster AwardFirst off, a big thank you to my fellow bloggers who nominated me: The Well-Red Mage, and pine717 at The Maximum Utmost, and hungrygoriya!

The Liebster Award is by bloggers for bloggers. The award is a great way to “pay it forward” in the blogging community, encouraging us bloggers to keep discovering others in the wide world of the interwebs.

The rules: the nominee thanks (and links to) the bloggers who nominated them, answers their 11 questions, and then nominates other bloggers to answer a new set of questions!

As The Well-Red Mage asked first, I’ll go ahead with the questions below –

1) DC or Marvel? (first and foremost)

Why not an easy one to start?! I honestly don’t think it’s an either-or. DC as I’m a big Batfan. Marvel for Spidey and how good a job they’re doing with the cinematic universe.

2) Favorite console?

Nintendo 64. Super Mario 64, not one but two great Zeldas, GoldenEye, Mario Tennis, all with that fancy new analog controller – total class.

3) Favorite video game?

Another difficult one! Can’t pick one: Sensible Soccer, Half-Life 1 & 2, Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, Link’s Awakening, Super Mario 64.

4) Favorite character or franchise that needs a comeback?


5) Favorite film?

The Godfather and The Godfather Part II. Tom Hanks explains why Godfather is “the sum of all wisdom”:

6) Favorite book?

Deliverance by James Dickey (also a great movie). And: Dune!

7) Favorite non-gaming pastime?


8) Favorite thing about blogging and your blogging goals? (two for the price o’ one!)

Discovering great bloggers – the blogs I’ve been following have featured some great writing, and obvious care for video games. Goals? To keep following other folks’ blogs on WordPress!

9) Favorite thing you find most inspiring in life?

Anything to do with science really – I find things like the Rosetta mission landing on that comet, or the recent discovery of gravitational waves, inspiring and fascinating.

10) What can The Well-Red Mage blog do to improve? (shameless, hehe)

Increase the font size maybe? You’re doing an awesome job!

11) What’s a game you think I should review?

Majora’s Mask! This needs an analysis like the one you did for Shadow of the Colossus.

  5. Pleased to see you mention Digitiser in your favourite websites, by the way. Man, I remember reading that from 1993 to 2003! One specific moment sticks out – eating my cornflakes one morning before school and stopping to bask in the staggering weirdness of the Man diary. Happy memories.
