Overview of (blog) life in August 2017

August was a busy time for collecting, mostly gaming, but also a fair bit of watching movies, TV shows and other surprises.

The overview of (blog) life in July 2017 was quite late due to so many release news, but it was nothing compared to the Netflix watchlist: July 2017 and new additions to the media collection in July 2017 that were published during the last week.

New games were exclusively indie projects, with Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice in particular showing that one doesn’t need a big publisher to do a visually amazing game with mature storytelling. Other titles also presented some unique ideas:

Darkwood
The Darkside Detective
Galaxy of Pen & Paper
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice
Immortal Planet
Immortal Redneck
The Long Dark

Phantom Trigger
Sine Mora EX
Slime Rancher
West of Loathing

GOG had more titles added to its library, with two long-overdue first-person shooters, a classic strategy series, and a forgotten action-platformer gem:

Alien Rampage
Doom 3: BFG Edition
Quake IV
Sudden Strike 1-3

Staying a bit with GOG, there were even more game releases and a sale that brought free copies of recent and not-so-recent titles:

PC game “Chains of Satinav” free with GOG pre-order of “Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth”
GOG free game “Deadlight: Director’s Cut” + Piñata Madness sale
PC game “Event[0]” free with GOG purchase of “Tacoma”
PC game “Furi” free with GOG pre-order of “Absolver”
PC game “Jazzpunk: Director’s Cut” free with GOG pre-order of “Hello Neighbor”

Being able to play many games for a small price, the Humble Bundle selection provided good value for money again:

Humble microJUMBO Bundle
Humble Mobile Bundle: Puzzles (Critical Hits)

It’s often not possible to complete and review everything, but two game reviews per week (even if it came down to four per month) was a nice achievement, especially with such high quality titles:

Day of the Tentacle: Remastered
Full Throttle: Remastered
Maniac Mansion
Thimbleweed Park

Finally, it was a pleasant surprise to be reminded of the Happy 7 years WordPress anniversary that I’ve stayed with this platform for such a long time. So fingers crossed the next days, weeks, months, years will be just as much fun.

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.
