Because I’m still here and not Nicole, who we have not heard from in a few days, I will be taking some reader mail today. This one is from Ethel: “Dear Scoop Sub, why are you so terrible? Love, Ethel.”
That’s a fair question. But one I have no answer for right now. So if that is your question, readers, don’t bother writing in — we already know I’m just the worst. Sales, ho!
The PlayStation Plus games for May are now available, so check out some of these free titles this month: Tales from the Borderlands (PS4), Abzu (PS4), Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants (PS3), Blood Knights (PS3), Laser Disco Defenders (PS4 + PS Vita Cross-Buy), and Type Rider (PS4 + PS Vita Cross-Buy).

Ending Friday, the Midweek Madness Sale at Steam this week includes Battlefleet Gothic – Armada for $15.99, with 30% off its DLCs, and an Age of Wonders Franchise Sale with four games at 75% off each, and expansions up to 40% off each.
Also at Steam, they’ve got some good Daily Deals going, such as Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition, and the Darksiders II soundtrack for 80% off each. If you’re in the mood for some Star Wars, they also have a Star Wars Sale with Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga, Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, Star Wars: Empire at War – Gold Pack, Star Wars: Battlefront II, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed – Ultimate Sith Edition, and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II each for 75% off until May 8th! Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens is also on sale for 40% off. Plus, there’s even a few more Star Wars games from 60-75% off, so check those out, too! That’s a lot of warring stars! It’s almost as if it were Star Wars Day tomorrow or something.
And speaking of Star Wars, the Humble Store is having their own Star Wars Sale, with many games from 50-77% off, ending May 8th, many of the titles being the same as at Steam. They appear to be about the same prices, too, but you may want to check to see if a particular game is actually cheaper at one or the other.
Elsewhere in the Humble Store as part of their Sports Week Sale, they have NBA 2K17 and WWE 2K17 for 40% off each, as well as the NBA 2K17: Legend Edition, and the NBA 2K17: Legend Edition Gold for 45% and 50% off respectively.
Not many shirts today, but check out what there is after the break!
TeeTournament has a cool Pac-Man shirt today, “Pac-World.”
And there’s an “Awesome 80s” reprint going on at Ript, that combines a lot of the pop culture we love from that wonderful decade, such as characters from iconic games, cartoons, and movies.
