Overview of (blog) life in May 2017

Whatever happened to March and April blogging you might ask and rightly so, considering that the overview of (blog) life in February 2017 was written at the beginning of May. Fortunately last month was much more consistent with a wide range of articles.

I was still trying to get my head around what happened in 2016 with some very long overviews:

Blogging 2016 overview
Overview of game review articles in 2016

A new feature was introduced that will hopefully be updated every month (although maybe with a different streaming service):

Amazon Prime Video watchlist: March to April 2017

Being a collector, it’s always nice to appreciate what one has and what one can share, so this one won’t be the last piece of writing:

Happy Star Wars Day 2017 with LEGO collection

The majority of articles dealt with game releases of which there were simply so many that other media had to wait in line:

Blackwood Crossing
EVERSPACE
Everything
Full Throttle: Remastered
GOG release: “Gremlins, Inc.”
Inner Chains
Little Nightmares
Outlast 2
Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs
Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days
Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island
StarCrawlers
STRAFE
Syberia 3
Thimbleweed Park
GOG release: “Throne of Darkness”
World to the West

Finally some reviews materialized, even if there were only two games:

Silence
The Whispered World

Sales and promos were another big topic, and some even included free games:

GOG special promo: Star Wars sale
GOG free game “Eador: Genesis” + “Eador” series sale
GOG free game “Mount & Blade” + “Mount & Blade” series sale
Humble Bundle free game “Dungeons 2” + Spring Sale
Humble Bundle free game “Rising Storm: GOTY” + Spring Sale Encore

Speaking of free games, one indie game became part of the forever-free category after years of digital distribution:

PC game “Sang-Froid: Tales of Werewolves” now free

It was only too bad that another (much bigger) title faced licensing issues due to the music:

“Alan Wake” to be removed from digital platforms

On a much more positive note, a free-to-play game of a pretty big franchise made it into beta:

“GWENT: The Witcher Card Game” public beta live now

As you can see, May wasn’t as empty as the months before, and it seems that June will be even more exciting and busier. Oh my, where does one take the time…
