2017 is behind us! It was a good year for gaming and a great year for my blog. And that brings me to some news about my blog moving forward this year. I am leaving WordPress and moving on to bigger and better things. Continue reading “Year In Review and Future of My Blog Moving Forward in 2018”
I’m sorry for the really bad sound in the background. I’ve never used the normal mic on my laptop and that’s what I recorded this video with. Enjoy the unboxing!
I know i’ve been really quiet this month so far. I think i’ve only written one or two articles since my monthly recap back in January. There’s a perfectly good reason for that. I have writers block and i’m not quite ready to come back to full time article writing just yet. I am very excited to bring the Xbox One coverage over to drakulus.com and Gamers Sphere. I’ll see you guys next week for my Ryse first impressions.
I am no longer a part of Gamers Sphere. I was working there on the promise that I would be paid and it didn’t happen. My work is now exclusive to Drakulus.com.
This is my very last post of the month and it’s right before the start of a brand new year. The month of December has been really great and I’ve even picked up a few awards this month including three Blog of the Year Awards from caragale, stephenwrhodes, and johnheatz. I’ve also gotten a Versatile Blogger Award, a Sunhine Award from roflrance , three more Sunshine Awards from Chronic Chronicler, The PewPew Diaries., and lunaliah, and finally last but not least I got my very first WordPress Family Award from lunaliah. I can’t tell you guys how much these awards mean to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Winning awards isn’t the only awesome thing that’s happened this month on drakulus.com. We’ve gotten over 100 new followers this month which brings the total up to 365 followers. I’ve also had one of my post surpass the 20 like mark. It was previously my top ten games of 2013 and now my second post to do it is my top ten actors of all time.
Since this year is ending and another one is about to begin everyone here at drakulus.com decided to make a Game of the Year Awards that has over 26 categories. We were joined by John Heatz, and Englishgameruninhibited. Together we made what I think is a awesome game of the year awards and even though I left out a few categories I have some great ideas for next years game of the year awards. I’ll end my monthly recap with my ten best post of the month and I hope everyone has a safe and happy new year.
Total War Rome II- Lag Fix– I had Lunaliah write this post while I was on break from blogging. Since September this post has officially surpassed 1,000 views and this month it was actually a pretty popular topic from Total War fans. I hope this article helped you guys fix your game.
Skyrim Mod Review- Realistic Needs and Disease– I wrote this post shortly after I released my very first top 5 weekly Skyrim mods and I was actually quite surprised that it still gets so many views. It’s worth a read if you’re into modding or just like Skyrim.
Frozen Review– This is definitely one of my favorite movies of the year. I’ve already seen this three times [mainly because my daughters won’t stop asking to watch it again] and I’ve enjoyed the movie every time.
Is Skyrim Too Easy For You? Here’s How To Make It Harder– Here’s another pretty old post. I love Skyrim and I love modding so I decided to make a list of mods that enhance your Skyrim experience by making it harder and it was received rather well over the last few months.
Super Mario World Review– this probably my most commented post of the month. Super Mario World was a lot of fun to write about and i’m glad to see that everyone enjoyed reading this. This post made me want to review classic games more often and i’m working playing through Super Mario 3, and Zelda Ocarina of Time to review them.
Top 5 Weekly Skyrim Mods– I had a lot of fun trying these mods out this month. Skywind is still a work in progress but just being able to walk around in Morrowind again was so nostalgic that I didn’t care that every npc I walked pass was naked. I just listened to the beautiful music in the background and explored the beautiful world that I was in. I think this is the best list of mods i’ve come up with so far and I highly recommend any Skyrim fan to try them out.
Game Of The Year Awards 2013– It’s always nice when your hard work pays off and did this time. I spent days getting everything in order and another day or two just trying to figure out what games should win each category. I think it turned out great and for those of you that took the time to like and comment or just read it thank you.
Superman Unbound Review– I loved this movie. Superman got his ass kicked and actually bled in this movie. That’s not something you see everyday. Supergirl was great, Louis was great, and Brainaic was a badass. If you’re a Superman Fan then watch this movie. It’s one of the best i’ve seen this year.
Top Ten Worst Games of 2013– I wrote this back in November and I stick by my decision not to do a revised list because I think that these ten games really are the worst that came out this year and obviously not everyone will agree with this list but that’s what’s so beautiful about opinions. They’re all different.
Top 5 Weekly Skyrim Mods- December– Another Skyrim post made into my monthly recap and it led this month with views by far. No other article that I wrote came close to getting what this post got and it makes me feel great inside because I work really hard on these list.
Here are some post that I think should be mentioned that didn’t make the top ten of the month:
My Top 10 Actors Of All Time– This post got a ton of likes but didn’t get the most views and therefore couldn’t be in my top ten. It’s still good reading though if you guys are curious.
Is The Wii U Doomed To Fail?– I did some research on the Wii U a while back because i’m getting one and i’m just counting down the days that i’ll finally have one. It did really well this month but missed the top ten by two or three more post.
Mass Effect Trilogy- These are the three greatest games ever made. I never tire of playing them and each game tells an amazing story. Here is the link- https://drakulus.com/?s=mass+effect&submit=Search
This wraps up my monthly recap and i’ll see you guys next year. Here is a preview of what is coming next month:
Grudge Match Review- I just saw this last night and i’ll have a full review on the movie ready soon.
Should I make Sports a part of Drakulus.com?
Broken City Review
Banner Saga Review- This game isn’t out yet but I’m really looking forward to it and I can’t wait to review it! I’m a strategy game nut and this looks very promising.
