Welcome to another monthly Summary here at gamergal.exe! This month has been pretty productive in many aspects and overall I feel like I’ve had a decent month for gaming. The end of June / beginning of July saw the return of the Steam Summer Sale which lead to some prompt purchases, but I also feel like I’ve played more this month. So, let’s take a look at my progress, shall we?
Yesterday, Rooster Teeth announced their hit web series, RWBY, would be crossing over with the Free-to-play MOBA, Smite. The announcement Tweet didn’t initially give much away, but a few more details have come to light overnight.
There are plenty of truly wonderful gaming soundtracks out there which can contribute immensely to our personal gaming experiences. I see so many posts on Twitter about great OSTs whether it be appreciation posts, discussions or favourites lists; this topic is certainly a common one – with good reason. However, whenever I see talk of soundtracks, it always seems to be about how well they are written or how suited they are to the game. This is [11:11] after all, so I thought I’d address the topic with a slightly different outlook. As I have a musical background myself, the way music is used in gaming is a topic I’m particularly fond of, so I racked my brains to think of 11 games that have a unique type of soundtrack and / or use of music – the kind that incorporates into the game itself, or those that really go the extra mile to fit into the game’s requirements.
We’re halfway through Season 6 already. As expected, this is a pretty big patch for balance changes, but there’s also plenty of skins and another new Battle Pass on the way! Patch 6.7 will be released on Tuesday 23rd July with the Battle for Olympus content being released on 30th July and 13th August.
*EDIT: The Mid-Season update has been delayed and will be released on Wednesday 24th July, starting from 7am ET.
