Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! My supervisor was out of the office all this week so I had another impromptu vacation! Of course I spent the entire week binge watching shows on netflix!
So I’m finally all caught up with How To Get Away With Murder and I can tell you that I am devastated by the big reveal! I just… I can’t believe they did that! In slightly more positive news, I also watched the Gilmore Girls revival and I must say I am content with that ending, but I am a little hurt that Jess wasn’t featured as prominently in the overall story! 😦
Finally, this week I have a special request for you all which you can find in the Housekeeping section!! So definitely check that out!!

Poll Results for… How do you choose what to play next?!!
Alrighty, so this poll ran for the longest time and for that I appologize, I just couldn’t figure out what to do for the next poll… *clears throat* So on to the results:
It seems like most of you prefer to use Reviews/Walkthroughs when deciding which games to play, with 32 votes! Next up is Cost, followed by Ratings/Comments in App Store/Google Play, with 16 and 15 votes respectively. The six Other votes were as follows:
- Two votes for Moods
- One for Art
- Two for Looks/Appearance
- One for Youtube
I guess the biggest surprise is how low the Social Media vote was, I expected more people to decide what to play based on social media posts and hype, but I was wrong lol. What do you all think of the poll result?
Hey you guys!! I need your help for next week’s Blogger Spotlight! I want to do something a little different, instead of me picking blogger posts like I do every week, I want you all to suggest five bloggers from WordPress! I will feature the top five picks in next week’s post so please send me your suggestions by commenting on this post!!
I really want to hear from you guys, let me know what you think of Nice Job Breaking It, Hero. What do you think about this change? Do you guys like my posts? Is there something you think I should fix or add? Please feel free to let me know here in the comments section, or you can use this contact form!
So, I don’t have anything planned this week, but I’ll be working on various posts for you all throughout the week! I’ll most likely post a bunch of Demo Reviews since they’ve kind of been pilling up a bit!
The new poll is: What type of Otome Player are you? The poll will be open until December 17th at 11:59 PM! You can find it in the side bar (or if you are using a phone/tablet @ the bottom of the page). If you still can’t find it, click the link HERE! I look forward to your responses!
