Daily Scoop: February 8, 2016 – Game-filled weekend

My wonderful friends came to visit from New Orleans this weekend! We chilled, ate lots of food, and played tons of games. I finally got to play the board game Seasons, and occasionally glanced up while doing homework to watch them playing Helldivers and Chariot. It was so much fun!

But just in case I wanted more games, I have so many great options today! We picked up Helldivers for free through this month’s PlayStation Plus deals, but if don’t have that, it’s also for sale at the Humble Store. You can get the regular version for $13.99 or the digital deluxe edition for $27.99. You can also get Disgaea PC for $19.99, Steve Jackson’s Sorcery! Parts 1 & 2 for $5.99, and Master Spy for $4.99.

The Lunar New Year sale at Steam is still going strong! South Park: The Stick of Truth is $7.49, Life Is Strange is $2.49, and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is $12.49, among so many others.

Let’s wrap this up with a few great t-shirts! (more…)

This weekend, my friends are in town from New Orleans, and I’m hoping we get a ton of gaming done! I would love it if we just had a pajama jammy jam and did nothing but game until the controllers ran out of juice. That’s a weekend plan I can really get behind!

Daily Scoop: January 27, 2016 – Two great shirts today

As I frantically try to prep for PAX South, I’m not sure what video games to bring for the plane ride. Do I start Persona Q, or do I try to get the Platinum in Persona 4 Golden? Or do I take a break from the Persona universe altogether? No, no, that’s absurd. Right?

Anyway, let’s talk about deals! Over at the Humble Sale, they’ve got a lot of great offerings. Tabletop Simulator is $9.99, Rocksmith 2014 Edition is $9.99, and Dying Light is $19.97, among others.

I dove back into Borderlands 2 last night – during a half-time break of the Blood Bowl board game – and boy did it make me nostalgic for Pandora! I was helping a friend get the Platinum trophy by dumping a billion bullets into Terramorphous. It was a great time!
