Daily Scoop: September 29, 2014 – Flash Sale!

Monday is back with a vengeance, and we’re all mourning the wonderful weekends we had. In our case, we went to Ratha Yatra, created characters for a 5e D&D game, and played tons of board games. Oh, and we did a lot of work on RESISTOR_, which is unsurprising. Heck, I even got a chance to play a little First Light!

Speaking of all the games, there’s a brand new Flash Bundle happening at Humble Bundle right now. Pay what you want for Anomaly: Warzone Earth, Anomaly: Warzone Earth Mobile Campaign, Sleepwalker’s Journey, and Funky Smugglers. Pay $6 or more to unlock Anomaly Korea, Anomaly 2, and the bonus content for Anomaly 2. Finally, pay $10 or more to unlock SPACECOM.

Steam has a new Daily Deal as well. It’s everyone’s favorite Surgeon Simulator 2013, which is on sale for $2.49. You should scoop it up!

Just a few t-shirts today…

Daily Scoop – September 26, 2014 – Weekend at last

I was going to make the subject “Weird at last,” but then you’d all know that I’ve been listening to Welcome to Night Vale a lot. Well, actually, I guess that’s not a bad thing – just bad that it took me so long to start, and now I can’t get enough of it. If you haven’t started yet, I highly recommend it!

Anyway! Let’s talk about deals. There’s not much going on today – Steam’s Daily Deal is Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion for $9.99, which is 74% off. Their Weekend Deals include the Valve Complete Pack, which has Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Portal 2, Left 4 Dead 2, and Team Fortress 2, among many others. It costs just $24.99, which is pretty absurd for how much content you’re getting.

There’s not much else going on, though you can always, always count on the Humble Store for at least a few deals. Pick up Pid for $1.99 or Shelter for $2.99.

And finally, t-shirts:
