As December is reserved for my favourite games of the year list, I’ll be taking a look back at the Most Anticipated Games of 2019 post I created in January. All the games on this list have either already been released or are scheduled for 2020, so I feel like this review wouldn’t turn out any different whether I did it now or next month.
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!
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.
I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited for September to come around! I’ve been working an awful lot recently and I’ve not had a proper break since January so I’m definitely ready for some time off. I’ll be spending 10 whole days with my boyfriend, so we’re planning on working our way through a load of games – mostly local co-op games – that have been sat in out collective backlog for quite some time (and also a few new releases).
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:
