Considering what our media consumption is like today, compared to that of our childhoods. This has, naturally, led to a more philosophical set of random thoughts for today. 

Blog Updates

On a lighter note, now that I’ve got my cathartic post out of the way, here’s some updates on Gecko! Deactivated Twitter – I’ve redirected Gecko’s Twitter updates onto my own personal account. I was getting my pages mixed up and, as I couldn’t post as often as I’d like to have, it seems like…

The Raving Gecko x Ko-fi

Gecko is now on Ko-fi! If you like the blog (that’s awesome) and look forward to my random, infrequent and sometimes opinionated rants (wait, you do?), why not support a humble writer by buying her a coffee with Ko-fi? Ko-fi allows creators to receive donation from readers, fans and supporters. Anyone who chooses to support…

One Week In: Thank You

I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who has supported the new blog in it’s first week. To all of The Raving Gecko 2.0‘s new followers, readers and supporters, thank you for every view, like and read-through: every single one means the world.

Get To Know Me (2019 Edition)

Since I am new to blogging regularly I thought it would be fun (and shockingly introspective) to do a ‘get to know me’, meet-the-blogger type post. Here are 50 questions (yes, 50 – I couldn’t quite believe it myself) about me, which I hope will give you a better picture of who I am. 1….

Welcome to My Gaming Blog

Every age has its storytelling form, and video gaming is a huge part of our culture. You can ignore or embrace video games and imbue them with the best artistic quality. People are enthralled with video games in the same way as other people love the cinema or theatre.  — Andy Serkis This is the…
