October’s Monthly Summary is a day late this time due to the HORRORWE’EN post I co-wrote with WesleyWhale being posted yesterday. October was fairly busy for gaming despite not having a huge amount of free time and I managed to finish up the main games I started in September. October has mainly revolved around Hallowe’en though which I’m sure you’ll notice. Let’s take a look!
Happy Hallowe’en! Over the past few weeks, Hallowe’en has taken priority over my usual gaming normalities since spooky season is my favourite time of the year. Horror games aren’t even close to being my go to genre, but I do enjoy mixing things up a bit so what better time than Hallowe’en to dive under a duvet in a dark room with a selection of horror games.
Myself and spooky gaming buddy, WesleyWhale, have teamed up again to share our opinions on a selection of 8 games with a horror / Hallowe’en vibe. We did a post very similar to this last year which you can check out here, or you can read on for this year’s cut. This year, we have selected another handful of varied games to try to cover as much ground as possible for any type of gamer, whether you’re into scary, cute, action or adventure – we’ve got you covered!
Hello! October is here and I’m feeling spooky! This post is a little different from the others in the [11:11] series as I’ll be talking about games in a less direct way by featuring a list of characters here instead.
I’ve had a minor interest in cosplay for some time now, but I’ve never felt the urge to make a proper go of it. With this month being Hallowe’en, I’ve been thinking about which gaming characters I’d love to have a go dressing up as if I was to go to a party or event (which is highly unlikely for a shut-in like myself – but still). I came up with a few ideas so thought this would make an interesting topic for a post. Who knows, maybe by next year I might’ve actually tried a least one!
September has been a mixed month overall. In some ways, I feel like this month for gaming has probably been the best so far this year, I feel like I’ve played loads! On the other hand, some awful stuff has happened in my personal life which has brought the month’s overall positivity down.
The month of August has been a little abnormal this time around. Although I feel like I’ve completed a fair few games, they have all been of the same genre – a genre I’m very fond of. With so many games on the horizon, I’m now left with a gaming schedule that pretty much consists entirely of new releases up until the end of the year which is totally new for me. Even though there’s not a great deal of stuff to share this month, here’s what I’ve been up to:
Until last summer, I was never really bothered about Trophy Hunting. I always thought it was a waste of time, but I felt a huge sense of achievement after finishing a few games last year by gaining all the achievements. My views have recently changed and I now feel like getting all the achievements in a game means I’ve done everything the developers wanted the player to experience as well as being able to get more enjoyment out of a game once the story is over. This year, I seem to have prioritised 100% completion for those games I’ve really enjoyed rather than finishing a single playthrough and leaving it alone.
