Monthly Gaming Recap: August 2016

August was a huge month for me. In the month since Examiner’s demise I have taken on three freelance jobs and it’s been busy ever since. I write reviews, news and features for GameSpew, iOS reviews for Pookybox, and I’m a video producer for PlusMana’s YouTube. Plus I have GameJurk here and of course the ReActionExaminer channel as well. Personal stuff aside a bunch of news happened so let’s recap everything that happened in August.



  • Gwent’s closed Beta will begin on October 25
  • Nordic games have changed their name to THQ Nordic
  • Nier: Automata will also be releasing on PC when it launches on consoles next year
