The Dragon’s Horde: April Edition

It’s been a very lax month in terms of gaming for Dragon’s Tea Party. In fact, the only thing I’ve played has been Batman: Arkham Asylum and even that didn’t get much play time. I seemed to have an incredibly sociable month and was rarely at home but I need to crawl onto the sofa and re-charge my social batteries now so this month should be a bit more ‘video game active’.

What I’ve Been Playing

Batman: Arkham Asylum

It’s a bit quiet at the Tea Party this month with just Batman and myself in attendance. I’m determined to finish Arkham Asylum this month, I’m currently up to the Poison Ivy boss battle and annoyingly struggling quite a bit with it. I’d gotten used to the ‘big dude runs at you, throw batarangs boss format and this has thrown me.

Coming up in May


Isn’t it wonderful when you are talking about a game you want to play with someone and they happen to have it and let you borrow it so you don’t have to buy it? Hell yeah. Once I’ve finished Batman I’m going to start playing this, I need to actually make sure that I finish it in a decent amount of time as it’s borrowed, my usual half a year won’t do.

I have a fair few posts written out that I just need to edit and put up too so I do have more content on the way!

Blog Update

For the past couple of months I’ve been training to be a web developer, taking me on a whole new career path (turns out marketing just isn’t quite my cup of tea). To practice some of my new-found coding skills I’ve upgraded my blog to WordPress Premium so that I can use the CSS tool. You can expect my theme to change at some point in the near future and I’ll probably play around with it quite a bit so expect a few changes!

Also, if you are a web developer (or similar) and have any tips please let me know! Would love some advice!

Personal Update

A few days ago my lovely pet rat Genji passed away from old age. It came as a bit of a shock as he had a habit of rallying pretty well from being sick but he had been getting gradually worse and unfortunately it was his time. His brother Hanzo died about half a year ago and it’s very strange being pet-less suddenly but they were both old and lived happy lives. Please indulge me as I include a little picture shrine…


What have you been playing this month? Is there anything you’re looking forward to playing in May?

  1. Oh my god your fur babies are so cute!!
    The Arkham games were excellent. Good choice! Over here I’m working on Okami HD and Final Fantasy XII on the Switch. Ports ahoy! It’s been a long time since I played through Okami and I’m looking forward to writing about it. 🙂

      1. Oh my gosh you gotta play it! It’s such a classic, great story and gameplay, and just gorgeous. Switch is probably the best version so far. I’ll be doing a review write up on it this weekend probably.

  2. R.I.P. Genji. You lived the good life amongst the pancakes, M & S carrot cake, strawberry breakfasts and a hideaway made from a beer carton. No rat could ask for more.

    (p.s. I haven’t been playing any games this month – unless filling in a couple of sudoku grids counts?)

  3. Aww! I’m sorry to hear about Genji, and his brother Hanzo before him. Glad you had lots of good memories with them!

    This past month was mostly Hollow Knight and Skyrim! A pretty good month, if I do say so myself! Started Borderlands: GOTY this past weekend (never played the series before), so that’s been an awesome way to start May!

    Good luck in your new field!!

  4. I’m so sorry about Genji. I hope he is playing with his brother again and watching over you.

    I hope you enjoy Spider-Man when you get to start it.

    Congratulations on the retraining and the upgrades going on with your blog.

  5. Ratty babies just don’t live that long 😦 I don’t know if it’s the same on your side of the pond as it is here in the states, but all of our pet rats are pretty much descended from lab ones who were purposely given mutations for research purposes. As a result they tend to develop tumors early in their lives. I’ve never had any, but I have friends who have. They’re lucky if they reach two ;_;

      1. One of my friends was a rat mom for many years and she told me about that. It seems like it’s similar in the UK, too, at least the life expectancy, though granted rats just don’t live that long in general 😦
