I’m having a delightful time so far with The Last Guardian. I am savoring every moment because I know it will be over too soon. But that’s OK – I have a huge pile of unopened games next to my television, so I’ll have something else I can easily dive into once I’m done!

Daily Scoop: December 6, 2016 – NIS America sale at Humble

I have been in a terrible mood today, because Amazon screwed up my order for The Last Guardian. I think it might be time to cancel my Prime subscription, because if I’m not guaranteed delivery, what’s the point of paying the extra money? Guess it’s time to decide between GameStop and Best Buy. Sigh… I’m so sad! Guess I’ll just have to finish some other game first…

Anyway, onto some good news! There’s a big NIS America sale happening at Humble right now. Disgaea PC is $9.99 (and the Digital Deluxe Dood Edition is $11.24), Phantom Brave PC is $14.99, and Cladun X2 is $4.99, among others.
