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…

Quote of the Day: Who Are You, Really?

Who are you, really? You are not a name or a height, or a weight or a gender you are not an age and you are not where you are from. You are your favourite books and the songs stuck in your head you are your thoughts and what you eat for breakfast on Saturday…

Quote of the Day: The Acquisition of Curiosity

“If one has failed to develop curiosity and interest in the early years, it is a good idea to acquire them now, before it is too late to improve the quality of life. To do so is fairly easy in principle, but more difficult in practice. Yet it is sure worth trying. The first step…

Get To Know Me Tag: 15 More Questions About Gecko

Hey! I trust you are having a fabulous Wednesday. Can you believe it’s August already? Today I’ve decided to do, yet another Get To Know Me Tag. I’ve attempted these before and, to be quite honest, I enjoy working through them when I’m afflicted by my old faithful writer’s block (or is it blogger’s block?). What…

Quote of the Day: Exodus to the Virtual World

“Anyone who sees a hurricane should warn others. I see a hurricane coming. Over the next generation or two, ever larger numbers of people, hundreds of millions, will become immersed in virtual worlds and online games. While we are playing, things we used to do on the outside, in “reality”, won’t be happening anymore, or…

Would You Rather, For Writers

After stumbling across this post in a moment of severely lacking inspiration, I’ve attempted this unique ‘Would You Rather’ for writers! While I don’t consider myself a ‘writer’ per se, but I have always dreamed about being one, from a very young age. I suppose I’m writing this post now so… technically, I’m almost there!…

Not-So Social Media

Last week I had an epiphany; one of those rare moments of clarity where everything starts to make sense. I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with social media. It’s been a long and gruelling partnership of trying to fit in, inadequacy and fake friends. On the flip side, I’ve also met some incredible people over…

Random Thoughts Vol.1: Maps and Wayfinding

Have you ever noticed something about the majority of games – the fact that they all have maps? The first time we log on, we navigate our way through these virtual worlds like tourists entering a new city. We are required to use maps, both virtual and geographical, in order to progress throughout a virtual…

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. Video games are somewhat niche in the blogging 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….
