Overview of (blog) life in November 2016

November was an almost gaming-exclusive month of blogging with quite a lot of reviews in addition to some beautiful indie releases and comprehensive bundles.

It seems that indie games are still going strong with interesting gameplay mixes and great art styles, as these titles showcased:

Candle
Human: Fall Flat
Kim
Owlboy
Political Animals
Silence
Tales
Through the Woods
Tyranny

GOG added another bunch of recent and older indie and AAA titles to its DRM-free catalogue:

BLACKHOLE
Crysis + Crysis: Warhead
INSIDE
LIMBO
Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault
Zombasite

There were many sales, but what’s always great about GOG is how one gets freebies of a very high quality, as could be seen with the GOG free game “Little Big Adventure 2” + Monstrous Fall Sale 2016.

Speaking of sales, the next logical step was to take a look at some very interesting bundles which didn’t necessarily include games only. It was also refreshing to see Groupee back again with fewer pixel indie games that usually flood their bundle pages these days and are difficult to distinguish:

Groupees: Build a Kiss Megabundle
Humble Book Bundle: LEGO
Humble Mobile Bundle: Board Games
Humble Unreal Engine Bundle

However, in the end it was all about games, and November was probably the most productive reviews month due to the Halloween gaming special week that even spawned two additional horror games being covered and squeezed in during the past two days:

Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare
Black Mirror
Black Mirror II
Black Mirror III
Clive Barker’s Undying
Kathy Rain
Outlast: Whistleblower
Oxenfree
Realms of the Haunting

Of course all these articles wasn’t really for movie fans as with the Halloween movie special, but with the upcoming season to be merry instead of being scared, there will hopefully be some reviews, maybe including snow without the Christmas theme, who knows?

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.
