A new blog award has appeared! I feel incredibly lucky that Michelle of A Geek Girl’s Guide nominated me for her award: the Achievement Unlocked Award. Her kind words warmed my heart so I am so excited to take part in this award that she has so carefully crafted for our blogging niche.
If you haven’t seen Michelle around before, she is not only writes amazing blog posts like this article on games that help you destress, but she also runs an amazing Facebook group called Geek Blogs Unite. Michelle is a super talented blogger and has many ongoing blog series but First Look is probably my favorite! You can check out those right here.
The Achievement Unlocked Award is for anyone who would fit into geeky blogging that goes above and beyond in our niche. Whether you are all about video games, DIY across all fandoms, sharing your cosplay journey, or anywhere in between, it all fits and is worth celebrating. — Michelle @ A Geek Girl’s Guide

Tags are so much fun to do! I was thrilled when I got tagged for The Game Tag by Kim and Aaron of Chimmyville. Thanks so much Kim! I’m a bit new to following Chimmyville, but you should definitely check out The Buffy Tag and Sightseeing in Bristol! There’s tons of lifestyle, food, and travel posts so be sure to follow Chimmyville so you don’t miss a post!
I haven’t seen this one making the rounds on WordPress, and that’s probably because it originates on DeviantArt. Credit for the questions go to Leminz. This tag will be set up as close as possible to my other tags so please bear with me as there is an absence of rules (which is a nice change of pace). In the spirit of a tag without rules, I’m going to do some quick-fire responses and tag five blogs at the end! Let’s do this.

I’m no stranger to the Sunshine Blogger award, and it warms my heart every time I get a nomination! It’s been awhile since I’ve received one of these awards, so this one really means a lot! Our writing community here on WordPress is so supportive and spreads love where ever they go. Special thank you to Neko Jonez for the award nomination.
If you don’t know Neko Jonez (and you should!), he’s a phenomenal writer and has many posts that will make any gamer think twice about a subject like his post on Difficulty in Gaming. He also does reviews and first impressions which are great if you’re looking for your next game! Thanks again for the nomination Neko Jonez! On to the questions…

I saw this tag over on The Animanga Spellbook and wanted to save it for today in honor of International Women’s Day! This tag was originally created by Kate at Melting Pots and Other Calamities, but I stumbled upon this tag on The Animanga Spell Book. Aria has such great content. Make sure you check out her tagged post as well! To answer these questions, I’m picking some of my favorite heroines from anime and video games with a special appearance from one of my favorite Western animations…

When the World Government executed notorious pirate Gol D. Roger he announced that he’d hidden all his treasure in one place and whoever finds it gets to keep it all. This saw the beginning of the Great Pirate Era and, like most others, you would probably love to make that treasure your own.
To do that, you’re going to need a crew. Admittedly, this is based on my experience watching One Piece, however, you don’t have to have seen One Piece to join in. You will need to assemble a crew from the anime you’ve seen, selecting the best character for the positions. — Lynn Sheridan
Lynn tagged me in this very neat Pirate Crew Tag he created awhile back, and I have finally gotten around to it! Thanks for the tag Lynn! If you’re new to Lynn’s blog, definitely check out his books here!

A Geeky Gal was tagged for the original T.A.P. Tag by Winter Reverie awhile back which you can find here! Thanks again Winter for the tag. It’s very much appreciated! The premise of the original tag is tanka for three anime. This geeky twist will feature three video games instead!

Ellie at Not-So-Modern Girl tagged me in this super neat Literary Dinner Party Tag awhile back and I finally wanted to tackle it in true Geeky Gal style! I’m twisting this tag a bit so that instead of inviting literary characters to a dinner party, I am going to invite video game characters!
