News and Updates

Hi everyone!

Unfortunately, I haven’t prepped anything for this week after a particularly mad-cap weekend down South. However, I do have some news and updates for you which should breath a bit of life into myself and this blog!

First of all, if you are jonesing for a fix of Jyn Reviews you can head over to Karibu who have published two posts of mine: the first is my Legion review, which you may have read but has had another pair of eyes on it, and the second is an Opinion Piece on Star Citizen, having watched the E3 2016 gameplay video and had a surprising change of heart. Please let me know what you think!

Don’t stop there though! Please have a read of the other posts on Karibu, this is a fantastic new site for everyone with loads of great content.


In other news, there are going to be a few changes to Jyn Reviews – nothing major, aside from the name, template and domain… I’m going to be hosting the blog on my own domain and renaming it to The Gamepad – everything will be moved over to the new site and I’ll be spending a few hours picking the perfect template, but you’ll be the first to know when it changes! Jyn Reviews will live on in spirit and possibly under a new tag…

I’d also like to take this opportunity to invite anyone reading to submit their own Guest Posts for the blog. The Internet is a scary place and I’d be happy to have a read and post something if you’d like to get a feel for it – earlier this year, my good friend and best man Aidan Parr wrote a post about Overwatch which went down brilliantly!

Thanks again for popping by, check back next week for my latest post!


World of Warcraft: Legion

Anyone who knows me will know that I am a big Blizzard fan, so as soon as I found out the release date for World of Warcraft’s sixth expansion I took a week off from work to play it. Legion was a revitalisation for the MMO with a lot of hopes pinned on its success, considering the mediocre reception of Warlords of Draenor. A long and winding story has been laid in the last couple of expansions, now coming to a head with the Burning Legion setting their sights on Azeroth.

From the beginning, we are on the back foot: the first scenario takes place on the Broken Shore, a massive effort from both factions to push the Legion back before the invasion even begins. We barely make it out alive, with major losses to both sides and distrust sewn back into the Alliance and the Horde.

After we realise the extent of the Legion’s power – which included Invasions throughout Azeroth during the pre-patch questline – Khadgar decides to take the fight to the Legion, magically teleporting these willing adventurers and an entire city to the Broken Isles.
