Daily Scoop: March 31, 2015 – Last day of March

Tomorrow is April Fool’s Day, when you cannot trust a single thing on the Internet. I can’t wait to avoid it all day long!

The Humble Indie Bundle 14 is brand new over at Humble! Pay what you want for Pixel Piracy, UnEpic, and Super Splatters. Beat the average to unlock Outlast, Torchlight II, and La-Mulana. Pay $10 or more to unlock Shadow Warrior Special Edition. And finally, pay $40 or more to get the Travelin’ Pack, which includes a t-shirt, a custom patch, and a handkerchief.

Over at Steam, the Midweek Madness is indie darling Octodad: Dadliest Catch. For just $4.94, you can get the game, or you can pay $6.59 for the game and soundtrack. The Daily Deal is early access to Gang Beasts. If you’re into local multiplayer, this is a steal for $13.39.

Again, there are just a few shirts today. But they’re good ones! (more…)

Daily Scoop: March 27, 2015 – The weekend is almost here!

Yay, it’s Friday! And that means it’s almost time to go home and unwind. I’ve got so much to do, but I’m hoping I get at least an hour to play some games with Anthony Amato. We finally started up Diablo III on the PlayStation 4, and we’re really enjoying it! So I hope we can park on the couch tonight and get back to it.

Onto deals! Humble Bundle is having a Bethesda Weekend Sale. Pick up The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for $9.99, Dishonored for $9.99, and The Evil Within for $29.99, among many others.

It’s a rainy spring day today, with temperature in the 60s. But Saturday it’s going to… snow??? Seriously, Spring. Go home. You’re drunk!

The best way to contend with this madness is to buy more games and stay inside playing them. At Steam, the Weekend Deal is Men of War: Assault Squad 2. You can play it for free, and/or pick it up for $7.49. The Daily Deal is one of my personal favorites, Legend of Dungeon! You can get it for just $2.99, and the soundtrack is on sale for $1.49.

There’s a Paradox Midweek Sale happening at Humble Bundle! Pick up Europa Universalis IV for $9.99, Crusader Kings II for $7.99, and the Magicka Collection for $9.99. Not too shabby!
