Hello there, gamers! I bet you’re excited for the weekend to start. What will you be playing over the next few days? There are so many great games coming out over the next few weeks that it seems like everyone’s scrambling to wrap up the games they already started. I’m really looking forward to TowerFall Ascension, which absolutely everyone on the planet needs to buy on Tuesday. Seriously. Buy that.
Let’s talk about deals! Over at Steam, they’ve got a new Daily Deal that went live today. It’s Resident Evil Revelations, and it’s a whopping 75% off, marking it down to $12.49.
Other than that, there are a few more sales over at the Humble Store. You can grab Commandos Collection for $3.24, as well as Kings Bounty: Warriors of the North for $12.49.
As always, let’s wrap this up with some great t-shirts!
Wow, how did it get to be Thursday already? No complaints here – I’m looking forward to it! I can’t wait to play some games, hang out with friends, and celebrate my birthday. Oh, did I forget to mention Saturday is my birthday? Well, it is, and I’m very excited about it!

It’s the middle of the week, which means it’s getting closer to the weekend! I hear the weather is going to be beautiful, which means I might even try to spend some time outside. Or maybe I’ll just open the windows while I play games inside. That’s pretty close to going out, right?
Steam has some deals as well. Their Midweek Madness deal right now is The Walking Dead: Season 2 for $16.74. The Daily Deal is Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams – Rise of the Owlverlord for $1.24. Scoop ‘em up!

“The struggle between law and chaos… what is right and wrong?”
For the first time, the original Shin Megami Tensei will be available in the United States! Atlus is bringing the first game in the series to the iOS App Store, giving mobile gamers a chance to get addicted to these games. Now you can start from the very beginning and spend 40-60 hours with your favorite device: your phone.
For those of you unfamiliar with the plot, here’s a synopsis:
Step away from clear notions of good and evil, right and wrong. There are demons in the world, but whether they are ally or enemy depends on player actions. In Tokyo 199X, a mysterious murder leads to the emergence of demons and an escalating global conflict thanks to the rise of a charismatic rebel leader in possession of a demon army, and external forces that wish to crush such threats with extreme measures. As the protagonist, players have an unusual ability (via computer program) to communicate with and recruit demons to fight for them. As they collect demons, the program will allow you to store, summon, and fuse them to create the right team to negotiate the ever-changing balance of powers, and fight for the kind of world you ultimately wish to live in.
Shin Megami Tensei will be available on the App Store on March 18 for $7.99.
Warning: If you want to play Outlast and you haven’t yet, this DLC description has major spoilers!
Outlast developer Red Barrels has announced via its Facebook page that “The Whistleblower,” the first DLC expansion for the game, will be coming to PC and PlayStation 4 this April.
In “The Whistleblower,” you’ll get to play as Waylon Park, the man who sent the email to Miles Upshur, and many other journalists around the world, at the beginning of Outlast. Park was a software engineer at Murkoff, and “developed a deep-seated distrust of the profit-motivated scientists and doctors leading dangerous and irresponsible experiments on their patients” while he was working at Mount Massive. He was driven to blow the whistle on Mount Massive, and here you can play out those events – though the developer promises that the DLC “will actually stretch past the events of the first game to show the final chapter in Mount Massive Asylum’s story.”
Keep an eye out for “The Whistleblower” this April on the PC and PlayStation 4.
