My Monthly Mailbox Flashback #5: August In Review



[image_border img=”” /]

Welcome to the August edition of My Monthly Mailbox, my monthly edition of Stacking the Shelves by Tynga’s Reviews. Each month I will showcase the books, swag, games and other goodies I received, won or purchased. By doing this feature monthly, I hope to give everyone a glimpse into what reviews they can expect coming up on the blog, books I receive for future giveaways, things I’ve unexpectedly won, and games that I am currently playing! Also in the Flashback Section, check out everything that happened over the course of the month. Moreover, if you missed anything, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.



August was an exciting month, school started back for most of us who either attend school ourselves, or have kids we proudly send off. The blog is back in full swing with plenty of giveaways, tours, challenges and reviews. Let’s rewind and check out all the fun M/G/W had in August!

[title3_wrap]What I’m Playing:[/title3_wrap]

[image_border img=”” /]

The Walking Dead

If you are like me and enjoy the awesome TV show, The Walking Dead on AMC, then you will instantly fall in love with Telltale’s The Walking Dead video game. Season One of this amazing series will be delivered over the course of 5 memorable episodes of heart-stopping, zombie killing action. I finished episode 1 and will be playing episodes 2 and 3 in the next couple of weeks. I must say, the game is outstanding and unlike anything I have ever played. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quick game with a well-written story and characters you can truly love. The games are available for download on Xbox Live Arcade, iPod/Pad App Store, and the PlayStation Network Store.
