October for me means Halloween, which of course means I won’t pass up the chance to do a horror game Community Game-Along! If you want to get in the spooky spirit, grab a horror game or any kind of creepy title and join in the festivities by playing it throughout the month of October!
Happy September, everyone! I always love a good Community Game-Along theme that rolls right off the tongue, which is why this year’s pick for September is SPRGs! Play any strategy or tactical turn-based role playing game and share your experiences with #SRPGSeptember on social media to join in the fun!
If you’re not sure where to start, read on for a few game suggestions from me. Feel free to add some of your own in the comments!
Hello August! Though it’s always sad to see JRPG July go, it’s time to move on to yet another Community Game-Along event. This month we’ll be focusing on mech games, or any games featuring big robots that you can control! Of course, there’s always classic mech series such as Armored Core and MechWarrior, but even Kirby’s recent 3DS venture, Kirby: Planet Robobot counts for this month’s theme!
JRPGJuly is back once again! By far the most loved Community Game-Along theme, JRPGJuly has been a mainstay since the first year I started hosting them. This year’s event is especially exciting since Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age is coming out on the 11th! Whether you’ve got a JRPG sitting in your backlog you’ve been dying to finish, or a new title you’ve been meaning to check out, simply grab a JRPG and play it throughout the month of July to join in the fun!
Hello, June! It’s a busy month for video games, especially with all the E3 news coming up, so I though it would be fun to select a less time-intensive theme for this month’s Community Game-Along. But then again, how much time you decide to spend with a puzzle game is entirely up to you!
Puzzle games are perfect for fitting in a few minutes here and there during your commute or while waiting for leftovers to heat up (am I the only one that does this?!), so be sure to grab a game and share your impressions throughout the month using #PuzzleGameMonth! If you’re not sure what to play, never fear, because I’ve rounded up a few recommendations!
To celebrate the English release of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia on 3DS on May 19th, I decided to dedicate May’s Community Game-Along theme to developer Intelligent Systems! In addition to the Fire Emblem games, Intelligent Systems is also famous for Advance Wars, WarioWare, and the Paper Mario games, so there are tons of great titles to choose from!
April 2017 is a big month for Grasshopper Manufacture. The Japanese game developer is finally seeing its first title, a visual novel called The Silver Case, released in English on PlayStation 4 on April 18th. Originally released for PlayStation in 1999, The Silver Case has never been localized until now! The remake has been available in English for PC and Mac since last year, but to honor the widespread release of this classic title, I wanted to dedicate April’s Community Game-Along to Grasshopper Manufacture!
