Daily Scoop: March 1, 2011 – Bejeweled Crazy!

It’s March, HOORAY! Time for spring to get here already. And with Dead Space 2: Severed DLC and PixelJunk Shooter 2 coming out today, you bet that March is coming in like a lion. RAWR!

Today’s Amazon Deal of the Day in video games is a nice long list of PopCap Games: there’s Bejeweled 3 for PC and Mac, Bejeweled Twist for the Nintendo DS, Bejeweled Blitz and Bejeweled Twist for the PC, and Bejeweled 2 with Peggle for PC and Mac. All of the games are $12.99 down from $19.99, and will feed any Bejeweled addiction you might have. And for those Pac-Man fans out there, Pac-Man CE DX is 50% off on the XBLA. Seriously, March is starting off right!

Also of note today is the cool new website, The Mary Sue, “A Guide to Geek Girl Culture.” I was skeptical at first – many sites claiming to be friendly to girl geeks mostly just try to prove that they are the geekiest girls out there and create a strange sense of competition instead. But this site is legitimately awesome, and their articles – like “Real Comic Book Superheroes Who’d Be Better In the Sack Than Cosmo’s Fake Ones” – are ingenious. (Also, they were totally prepared for my skepticism, as their description says, “skeptical geek women, we know where you are coming from.” See? Awesome.)

The daily t-shirt scene is full of guns today – Tee Fury has a cool diagram of a Blaster (you know, that gun Han used to shoot Greedo first), and Ript Apparel has a kick-ass steampunk gun:

I’m partial to the steampunk revolver myself, even if it does bring up memories of that horrible game, Damnation. *twitch*
