Overview of (blog) life in September 2016

September was another text-heavy month with 30 articles (1 less because of fewer days), and despite having tried to be more diverse, the focus was still on gaming.

Again with school work occupying most of my time, it wasn’t easy to play through and review these very long titles, but it was definitely worth revisiting the first cyberpunk FPS/RPG adventure and also interesting to see what all the dislikes for the sequel were about, as it was still an enjoyable game:

Deus Ex
Deus Ex: Invisible War

Gaming release news were partly on time when the titles came out, although it was nice to browse through older ones, as they were worth picking up as well:

8-Bit Armies
8-Bit Hordes
Conga Master
The Curious Expedition
The Final Station
Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander
Lethis – Path of Progress
Meridian: Squad 22
Mother Russia Bleeds
Space Rangers: Quest
Super Treasure Arena
Tahira: Echoes of the Astral Empire
Titan Quest – Anniversary Edition
We Are The Dwarves
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – GOTY Edition
Zenith

The same held true for GOG releases. Some were already available on other online platforms, while there were others (like the Army Men games) that couldn’t be bought anywhere else:

140
Army Men I+II+Toys in Space
Death Road to Canada
Mirror’s Edge
Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee
The Saboteur
Shadow Warrior Classic Redux
SPORE Collection
Uprising: Join or Die
Uprising 2: Lead and Destroy

With so many sales going on it’s rather difficult to cover them all, but the GOG Back to School 2016 Sale and GOG Connect additions were worth mentioning, especially since the latter provided a great way to experience games bought on Steam in their DRM-free form.

I wasn’t able to play a lot of games because of the aforementioned time-consuming ones, and the reviews for Kathy Rain and Oxenfree aren’t done yet, either. However, I recently received some fine horror titles, and you can already guess what I’m going to do during vacation. Getting ready for Halloween also means to watch many horror movies, so October might be a bit different from the other months in terms of the articles’ content. It might be more difficult to keep up the daily blogging business when tests have to be written and marked, but at least two weeks of vacation will hopefully make it more manageable.

There might also be a few surprises with an upcoming board games convention and even more experimental articles. So stay tuned and watch this space for more news, reviews, and other media-related stuff!
