Daily Scoop: October 7, 2015 – Books on games

Last night, we had a group of friends over to see if we could resurrect our old Blood Bowl board game league. It went really well, and afterwards, we played Codenames, which might be my favorite game right now. We went to bed late and I’m exhausted, but it was definitely worth it!

Speaking of worth it, there’s a brand new video game book bundle over at Story Bundle, called the Video Game Bundle 7.0. Pay what you want for Boss Fight Books: Baldur’s Gate II, Shooter, Video War, and Stay Awhile and Listen.

Daily Scoop: October 6, 2015 – Nathan Drake is back!

Today’s the day – Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is out! [Ed. Note: Nicole got a little overeager, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection will be out on October 9] I didn’t pick it up – I mean, I want to, don’t get me wrong, but I have so many games in my backlog that I can’t in good conscience do it. So, I’m just going to watch from afar and try to get through some of these other games so that maybe, just maybe, when it goes on sale, I can pick it up and not feel guilty. Ha! Yeah right.

Speaking of buying more games, there are some good ones for sale at the Humble Store. Pick up Prison Architect for $19.99, Skyhill for $13.49, and Read Only Memories, which is also $13.49.
