Behind The Scenes is a monthly feature that celebrates our blog anniversary and personal anniversary every 5th of the month. You get to know what we have been up to, along with our video games, movies and comic book haul.
Let’s start with one of the highlights of the month: The Insomnia 58 Gaming Festival! We had the chance to play many video-games, including retro and indie ones, try Playstation VR and play the demo of World of Final Fantasy which Nya has reviewed.
This was also our second time cosplaying, and we took it more seriously – even though Fenrile’s scar needed a bit more work. What can we say? We had a rushed morning. We cosplayed Squall and Rinoa from Final Fantasy VIII . Many old-school players recognized us and complimented our outfits. It was such an amazing feeling. Of course, the gunblade got most of the attention!
Lately, we haven’t had as much time to post and dedicate to our blogs and social media channels because we’ve gone on holidays to Portugal. The sun makes us lazy and we want to make the most of it before we go back to the UK. Here’s a small taste of our short week of holidays in Nya’s hometown, which included surf, beach, sightseeing, zoo, and of course, reading comics (always).
And speaking of comics, here’s the summary of our monthly purchases. As you can see, we are continuing all the DC Rebirth series we have started, and even started some new ones (don’t judge). Nya has also bought the iconic first volume of Wonder Woman: Gods and Mortals.
Because comics take lots of space, we got some plain acid free cardboard boxes to store our comics, which Fenrile is convinced he can transform in some art masterpiece. We shall see and wait.
Let’s talk about TV and movies
TV wise, the highlight of this month was Stranger Things, we binge-watched the whole season in 2 days. We have also finished the first season of iZombie, which actually made Nya start reading the comics. We have also started watching Star trek the original series.
We’ve watched so many movies this month that we can barely remember them all. This is because we got ourselves a limited Odeon membership, and now we often go to the cinema more than once per week! We have watched and reviewed Suicide Squad, but you know that already. We’ve also watched not so geeky movies such as Legend of Tarzan, Nerve, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, and Bad Moms.
Let’s talk about video games
Apart from that, we’ve also played a lot during the gaming fest, and Fenrile bought No Man’s Sky. Review will come, eventually.
Let’s talk about Geek Gear and Toys
We haven’t spent much money in geek gear this month (we are surprised), but we did buy a board game of Game of Thrones.
And that’s it for August.
How about you, Silvers? How much have you been geeking out this past month of August? Do tell us.
