Overview of (blog) life in December 2016

Before taking an expansive look back at blogging in 2017 (and skipping the uneventful, articles-empty January), it’s maybe best to first see what was worth writing about in December 2016.

It all started out nicely with daily blogging business as usual, covering a few new game releases, some of which were especially pleasing to the eyes and showed some attitude in presentation and inventive ideas in gameplay:

Darksiders: Warmastered Edition
The Dwarves
The Little Acre
Maize
Rad Rodgers: World One
Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun

GOG added two more quirky titles to their roster of DRM free indie games:

Downwell
Headlander

They also gave away a surprisingly comprehensive RPG for a limited time with their annual winter sale:

GOG free game “Neverwinter Nights: Diamond Edition” + Monstrous Winter Sale 2016

With a cold winter approaching, it was the perfect time to review some suitable games for the season, although Revolution Software’s spy thriller was only winter-compatible only in name but not necessarily in gameplay (except for some levels):

In Cold Blood
Rune

It wasn’t all gaming, though, with my promise to cover other media fulfilled by doing a winter movie special week that (not surprisingly) continued the tradition of focusing on the horror genre:

Dead Snow
Dead Snow – Red vs. Dead
Frozen (2010)
The Thaw
The Thing (1982)
The Thing (2011)
30 Days of Night

Unfortunately, the planned Christmas movie special week didn’t happen as planned with only two movies discussed:

Krampus
The Long Kiss Goodnight

It’s always a lot of work to keep up the daily blogging, and as my job took up more and more time (in addition to finding a new one due to a fixed-term contract), I really needed some time off during Christmas and New Year’s time. So hopefully 2017 will bring more continuity with the coverage of new and old games, movies, books, and other events if time allows. I guess we already have a good start with the second day of February featuring the second article in a row, so… fingers crossed it stays that way, especially with so many review copies still in the pipeline.

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.
