Daily Scoop: January 27, 2015 – Blizzard dud

No, I’m not talking about the company, I’m talking about this epic snowstorm we were supposed to get. It turned out to be a major disappointment! I was hoping for a lovely day of hot chocolate and video games, with occasional glances out the window at the winter beauty. Instead, the snow is nearly gone already. Boo!

Over at Steam, their Midweek Madness deal is the wonderful Portal 2! Get one copy of the game for $4.99, or two copies for $8.74 (so you can play co-op!). Get it bundled with the first game for $6.24. The Daily Deal is Minimum, which is on sale for just $2.49. You can also get the Team Pack for $8.74, which gives you five copies of the game.

Don’t forget about that Humble Sale! There are lots of games on this list, like Tristoy for $14.99, Infinity Runner for $2.99, and Point Perfect for $2.49.

And, of course, there are always t-shirts… (more…)

Daily Scoop: January 26, 2015 – Where is the snow?

My city is in a panic, as are all the cities around me, about the upcoming snowstorm. So far, this blizzard has been nothing but a dud. Supposedly it got pushed back to 6pm, but we’ll see. I could go for a snow day! I haven’t had any time to play video games lately, and it’s bumming me out.

Just in case we do have a snow day, we should probably know what’s on sale at Steam. There are 103 new Weeklong Deals, including Shadowgate (2014) for $4.99, Descent for $3.49, and Teleglitch: Die More Edition for $4.41. The Daily Deal is Painkiller Hell & Damnation. Get a single copy for $3.99, or pick up a four pack for $$11.99.

The Humble Store has lots of sales this week as well. Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed is $4.99, The Cave is $3.74, Particle Mace is $6.74, and Master Reboot is $7.49, just to name a few.

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection brings Borderlands 2, Pre-Sequel to PS4, Xbox One

I’m having some serious feelings right now, Internet.

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection will bring the Borderlands series to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for the first time on March 24. As expected, it compiles Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel – and all of the DLC for both games – into a single package for $59.99. You can transfer save files and characters between the last-gen and the new-gen and, of course, it’s also got updated graphics.

All of that is sort of ho-hum, until you get to the part where the games now have four-player couch co-op. Oh, and there’s an absurd $399.99 special edition of the game that comes with “a remote controlled Claptrap steward robot, a collectible steel case, and 12 exclusive lithographs.” There are only 5,000 of these being made available worldwide, and pre-orders open today, so you better get on it fast if you want one.

Having played a zillion hours of Borderlands, I shouldn’t even consider buying this. But honestly, if it had the original Borderlands in it as well, I would have already pre-ordered it, as it’s the only one I haven’t played with Anthony Amato. And I don’t have $400 just laying around to buy that Claptrap Edition. But… But… I really want to!

Hit the jump to see what comes in the “very limited” Claptrap-In-A-Box Edition. (more…)
