Daily Scoop: October 28, 2014 – Coin Crypt is a featured new release on Steam today!

Well, we haven’t completely finished Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, but the credits did roll last night. We have a few more side missions to finish, and we’re considering playing it over again, but we definitely haven’t enjoyed it as much as we did Borderlands 2. But you’ll just have to wait for my review to hear my full opinion.

In the meantime, let’s talk about deals, starting with Coin Crypt! Although part of the Philadelphia-based team (Dumb and Fat Games) that made it, Greg LaBonav and Tyler Myers, are currently bicycling across the country, their game launched on Steam, and they’re listed in the featured new releases section. The game is also discounted down to $8.49 right now, which is even more reason to scoop it up!

Oh, and, you know, the Midweek Madness is BioShock Infinite for $7.49, and the Daily Deal is Transformers: Fall of Cybertron for $14.99, but whatever! Philly game devs represent!

Let’s also talk about the amazing new Humble InDIE Bundle. Pay what you want for OlliOlli, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, and Tower of Guns. Beat the average to unlock Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, Jazzpunk, four copies of Risk of Rain, and more games to be announced. (Honestly, that tier is worth it just for one copy of Risk of Rain, let alone 4!) Pay $12 or more to unlock Shadowrun Returns. And, finally, pay $65 or more to unlock the Box O’ Treats, which includes a hoodie, 13 collectible cards, and a cassette tape with tracks from the games on it, among other things. How cool is that?

Let’s check out all of today’s awesome shirts!

Daily Scoop: October 27, 2014 – Monday again

I know it keeps happening every week, but here we are – it’s another Monday! Anthony Amato and I spent the weekend playing a lot of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, showing our games off at South Jersey Geek Fest, and playing Dungeons and Dragons. How did you spend yours?

As always, I’m here to bring you the most current deals! John Scalzo already told you about one of the most exciting ones, which is Microsoft’s $50 discount on Xbox One consoles. That’s right – starting November 2 and running until just after the New Year begins, you can get discounted consoles. I’m actually really considering picking one up now – especially that sleek, sexy Sunset Overdrive one!

Steam has another 71 games on sale this week, including Ghostbusters: The Video Game for $2.99, Super Sanctum TD for $0.59, and Nethergate: Resurrection for $0.99, among others. The Daily Deal is Music Creator 6 Touch, which is on sale for $12.49.

Humble has a new bundle, too – the Humble Flash Bundle Boo!. Pay what you want for Claire and Zafehouse: Diaries. Pay $6 or more to unlock Deadly 30 and Haunt the House: Terrortown. And pay $10 or more to unlock Doorways: Chapters 1 to 3 Collection. Scoooop them up!

There are quite a few wonderful shirts available today!

Daily Scoop: October 24, 2014 – Quiet Friday

Hey there, Internet! It’s quiet here in the video game deals/video game t-shirt world today. Not that I’m complaining: I have plenty of video games and t-shirts. But I am always happy to add more to my collection of both.

There are a few games for sale at the Humble Store. You can pick up Escape Dead Island for $33.99, Forced for $4.49, and Gunpoint for $1.99.

The Daily Deal at Steam is the Eidos Anthology. It’s 34 games and DLC for $51.99, which is 75% off the full price. There’s a huge list there, and you should at least give it a glance!

I’ve got three shirts for you today…

Warner Bros. is creating a Mortal Kombat X tie-in web series

mortalkombatx-header

It’s unlikely we’ll ever get to see Mortal Kombat: Legacy III now that Kevin Tancharoen has departed the web series that became an Internet sensation after the director publicly released a proof-of-concept short by accident. But Warner Bros. is picking up the slack with the creation of a new Direct-To-Internet production house, Blue Ribbon Content.

Blue Ribbon’s first project will be a live-action web series that ties in to the story of the upcoming Mortal Kombat X. Like the game, it will pick up after the events of 2011’s Mortal Kombat and “[showcase] some of the franchise’s most storied characters, [as well as] introducing a new generation of fighters.” As of now, Warner Bros. isn’t ready to reveal who they have in mind for the cast or the director’s chair.

Mortal Kombat X will be released for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on April 14, 2015. Presumably, this new web series will be released in a similar timeframe.
