Daily Scoop: December 3, 2014 – Rain, rain, rain

I know it’s only been a couple of days, but it feels like it’s been raining in Philadelphia for forever. I almost forget what it’s like for it to not be raining. I want to be snuggled up under a blanket playing video games! That is the only cure for these rainy-day blues.

There aren’t too many game deals today, which I consider to be a good thing, because the last few days have seen a spike in my video game ownership. Over at the Humble Store, you can pick up MouseCraft for $7.49, Quest for Infamy for $9.99, and Jet Set Radio for $2.49. At Steam, the Midweek Madness deal is The Legend of Korra for $10.04, and the Daily Deal is Space Run for $5.99.

Just a few shirts today… (more…)

Daily Scoop: December 2, 2014 – Still can’t believe it’s December already

Of course you want the whole thing! Just gift out the pieces you already have. The Daily Deal is Star Wars Empire at War: Gold Pack, which is on sale for $6.80.
