Overview of (blog) life in December 2017

Happy New Year, everyone! After a short break from writing and a bit of a seasonal vacation, it’s now time to have a look back at what blogging was like in December 2017.

The overview of (blog) life in November 2017 was shortly followed by the Netflix watchlist: November 2017, with new additions to the media collection in November 2017 also being covered in the first week of the month. So there was actually more happening than at the start of this month…

A few games were released, mainly indie titles with beautifully touching stories and even inventive gameplay:

Finding Paradise
Gorogoa
Seven: The Days Long Gone

GOG spread some retro and Star Wars love with new additions to its DRM-free library:

Epic Pinball: The Complete Collection
Jazz Jackrabbit & Jazz Jackrabbit 2: Complete Collection
LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga + LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed I & II

The Polish company also gave away two games for free, while Humble Bundle also joined in:

GOG free game “Grim Fandango: Remastered” + new games on GOG Connect + Winter Sale with more free games
Humble Bundle free game + soundtrack “Layers of Fear”
GOG free game “Oxenfree”

Only two games were reviewed, and unfortunately these weren’t the best, again showing that not everything that’s retro is necessarily a classic that holds up well today:

Alien Breed
Alien Breed: Tower Assault

Finally, the Christmas spirit was kept alive with some movie reviews, but the new Star Wars movie wasn’t forgotten, either, although it was a difficult one to rate:

A Christmas Carol (2009)
Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas
The Polar Express
Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi

There were a few days without blogging content, mainly due to the festive season, and if you’ve noticed the look of my avatar, you might see that I spent some time in the Europa Park, a big theme park where I took many Christmas-y photos, but we’ll see if I can manage to cover it with all the other news and game reviews coming up.

About nufafitc

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.
