Overview of (blog) life in July 2022

July 2022 in blogging was a varied month for games, but also comic books, and other media, with this year’s previews for gamescom and devcom making it just in time, too.

With no streaming, only two overviews made their appearances:

The game releases weren’t as numerous as in the months before, making it a bit less stressful to write about them:

Gordian Quest
Hell Pie
House Party
Mari and Bayu – The Road Home
Necrosmith
Old World
“The Riftbreaker: Metal Terror” DLC
Serafina and the Key to the Egg
XEL

The same held true for GOG additions:

GOG releases 2 indie games from Meridian4
Baldo: The Guardian Owls
The Inheritance of Crimson Manor
“Kane and Lynch: Dead Men” and “Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days”
TOEM
Virgo Versus The Zodiac
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

From the looks of this list, it seems there weren’t so many freebies to grab, but with Prime Day, Amazon sure offered the highest number of free games ever:

Amazon Prime Gaming free games in July 2021
Epic Games Store free games: “Ancient Enemy” and “Killing Floor 2”
Epic Games Store free games: “Geneforge 1 – Mutagen” + “Hood: Outlaws & Legends” + “Iratus: Lord of the Dead”
Epic Games Store free game: “Lawn Mowing Simulator”
Epic Games Store free game: “Tannenberg”
Epic Games Store free game: “Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap”

The game reviews were something really special, as one article covered a surprisingly great if very different sequel to a not-so-great third game (Syberia 3: The Complete Journey) reviewed in February 2022 and a complete re-write of a review with a new score:

Syberia: The World Before
The Testament of Sherlock Holmes

It’s already August, and the following gaming events will happen very soon, so it was only natural to include them (barely) a month before:

Upcoming gaming events: devcom 2022
Upcoming gaming events: gamescom 2022

After having teased about these comic books that are part of the concept albums of the band Coheed and Cambria so long, it was about time they were finally reviewed:

The Amory Wars: The Second Stage Turbine Blade
The Amory Wars: In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3
The Amory Wars: Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV – From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness

Despite not having had to write two or more articles per day, last month was still a very busy one thanks to writing reviews and previews of long games and upcoming events that will be part of August, too. The The Testament of Sherlock Holmes re-write was surprisingly tough, too, as it made me think about how my writing style has changed over the years and how perceptions of games years after can, too.
