Overview of (blog) life in October 2016

The Halloween movie special is over, but before we’ll start the annual Halloween gaming marathon, let’s take a look at what blogging was about in October.

Despite having tried to fit in more movie reviews, the focus was still on gaming, although it has to be said that there were such great-looking indie titles, together with some bigger releases that they were worth writing about, including news that didn’t make it in the previous months:

Anima: Gate of Memories
Aragami
BUTCHER
Caravan
GoNNER
Hybrid Wars
Masquerada: Songs and Shadows
The Metronomicon
Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition
Quantum Break: Timeless Collector’s Edition
Reigns
Shadow Warrior 2
The Silver Case
Star Vikings
Sunless Sea: Zubmariner
Turmoil
Wuppo

GOG also released quite a few new and old games, although exclusivity could only be found in two classic titles:

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
D: The Game
Epistory – Typing Chronicles
Pharaonic
Titus the Fox: To Marrakech and Back
Worms Armageddon

Last but not least, the week before or until Halloween I revisited some classic and newer movies that are still frightening or fun to watch, despite some sequel problems:

The Babadook
Candyman 1-3
The Descent 1+2
He Never Died
It Follows
Lord of Illusions
Sinister + Sinister 2

All in all, it wasn’t always easy to publish articles each day, although I somehow managed. Time is still of the essence, and some rescheduling had to be done, which can also be seen in the lack of game reviews. However, we’ll have a bunch of those coming up this week.

So what are the plans for November? Still trying to play through all sorts of review copies, some requested and others simply given by publishers, so these are obviously of minor importance, even if they’re pretty cool and I’m looking forward to play them. Looking at the numbers of views when posting the movie reviews, I think I’ll post some more, even if this takes surprisingly more time than writing about games (reviews not included). I’m still not sure if more features, like the SPIEL ’16, the world’s biggest boardgames convention, will make it, as well as Gamescom 2016 coverage, but we’ll see.

Being an avid gamer, cinemaniac, and bookworm in addition to other things the internet and new media present, I'm also very much into DIY music, rock and pop in particular. Writing short or longer pieces about anything that interests me has always made me happy. As both an editor for German website "Adventure-Treff" and UK website "Future Sack", I like to write reviews and news about recent developments in the movies, games and book industry.
