August provided a good mix of articles for both gaming and movie fans.
First up were the traditional overviews that already included quite a few reviews of movies and TV shows, while new additions to my media collection obviously had many games as well:
Free games were always welcome, even if it meant more for the digital pile of shame:
New games, mostly indies, were again the most prominent ones in the news articles:
GOG also had some old and new titles added to its DRM-free catalogue:
A game that somehow disappeared from GOG made a welcome return, together with a sale:
Maybe the biggest news, at least for Germany, was that something was finally done about censorship in games:
It was quite a coincidence that this topic was put under scrutiny again, as my game reviews dealt with it as well, but with a more lighthearted approach, as the iconic man with the hat and whip liked to punch some Nazis in the face, or puzzle his way through, without any violence, but with lots of block building and destroying:
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb
LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures
LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues
These games wouldn’t have been possible without the movies they were based on or inspired by:
Even the not-so-great TV show was reviewed:
If this wasn’t Indy hype enough, then the books certainly added to the excitement and fun:
So all in all, I managed to publish more diverse articles that weren’t only focused on games, but also movies, and some books (although these were again about movies). Daily blogging worked, too. So hopefully both ways of writing will continue for September as well.
