Daily Scoop: September 2, 2015 – Halfway through the week

We’re almost to the weekend! And in the States, it’s a three-day weekend. What do you have planned? Does it include lots of games? I hope so!

There are lots of deals happening at the Humble Store. You can get Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball for $4.99, Cities: Skyline for $20.09, and Sonic Generations for $7.49. There’s also a Build Your Own Devolver Bundle as well – they’re having huge sales on their games, but get an addition 85% off three games, 87% off four games, and 90% off five games.

The Midweek Madness at Steam is all about the Deus Ex franchise. You can nab the Deus Ex Collection (which includes Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition, Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut, Deus Ex: Invisible War, and Deus Ex: The Fall) for $6.59. If you’ve already got any of those titles, they’re all on sale individually as well. Today’s Daily Deal is Endless Legend.

Daily Scoop: September 1, 2015 – Some new game out or something

I think a new game came out today, or maybe two new games? I’m not sure. Something about Metal… Gear? I don’t know. Maybe I’ll figure it out later.

For now, let’s talk about deals! There’s a new Bundle at Humble, and it’s all Tom Clancy games! Pay what you want for Rainbow Six, Rainbox Six 3 Gold, Rainbow Six Vegas, Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, Ghost Recon, and the multiplayer beta for Rainbow Six Siege.

Finally, pay $75 to pre-order Rainbow Six Siege, an exclusive Rainbow Six Siege t-shirt, and 66% off any three (non-pre-order) Ubisoft titles in the Humble Store. Whew! That’s a lot of games!

On Steam, the Midweek Madness is The Elder Scrolls® Online: Tamriel Unlimited. It requires an online account to play, but you can get the game itself for $40.19 (or the Imperial Edition for $53.59). Today’s Daily Deal is eden, which you can get for $7.99.

Daily Scoop: August 28, 2015 – It’s finally Friday

So, the good news is, I finished up a full draft of my project! The bad news is, I never want to look at it ever again for as long as I live. That’s usually not a good idea, but I just don’t want to look at it right now. Maybe I’ll wait a few hours and then try!

What I do want to look at right now are deals! There’s a big End of Summer Sale happening at the Humble Store right now. You can get Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones for free until August 31. Hunie Pop is $3.39, Valkyria Chronicles is $4.99, and GRAV is $6.79, among others.

Still not feeling great, gentle readers, but I’ve had some time to play more Alphabear, at least! And I’m nearing the end of Professor Layton and the Last Specter. I’m not sure what I’ll do next – either watch The Eternal Diva or go back to Phoenix Wright – I’m up to Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney. I’ll get to the crossover eventually!

I’m also sad to announce that I won’t be making it to PAX Prime this year. But I’m watching it fondly through Tweets and Facebook posts from friends! So keep it coming, everyone.

Daily Scoop: August 24, 2015 – What did you play this weekend?

I had an amazingly game-filled weekend! All told, we played 16 board games in two days. I also started playing the adorable Alphabear on my phone. I was addicted to Triple Town for a while, so it’s no surprise that Spry Fox’s latest is equally addicting. It’s been keeping me company all day today – I’m home with an awful headache and stomachache that I just cannot kick. So I’m spelling words to try to make me feel better. How about you? What did you play this weekend?

Let’s talk about this week’s deals, shall we? There’s a new Mobile Bundle at Humble, and it’s all about Humongous Entertainment. Pay just $1 for Putt-Putt Saves the Zoo, Spy Fox in Dry Cereal, Freddi Fish: Haunted Schoolhouse, and Pajama Sam: No Need to Hide. Beat the average to unlock Putt-Putt Joins the Circus, Pajama Sam Thunder & Lightning, Freddi Fish & The Stolen Shell, and Putt-Putt Enters the Race. Pay $10.99 or more to unlock cross-platform Steam keys for every one of these games. And, finally, pay $29.99 to unlock all of that and also receive a pair of Pajama Sam socks and a Putt-Putt air freshener.
