Daily Scoop: April 28, 2017 – Last chance for April’s Games With Gold and PS Plus freebies

Good news, everyone! We made it — it’s Friday! And, yes, still here sitting in for Nicole. If you’ve been following the Scoop this past week, you know she is on location in the Amazon conducting covert research for persons unknown. We were all excited for her for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend time in the rainforest, but today I received an eerie postcard from her: “The forest is alive. In ways man cannot fathom. The leaves see all. Send Pocky.” I wonder what that’s about. Anyway, sales and shirts!

The Humble Store has some good deals this weekend with The Elder Scrolls Online: Imperial Edition 67% off, and the Gold Edition for 50% off. And if you’re a fan of zombie plagues, they’ve got you covered with Resident Evil for 50% off, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard for 25% off, Resident Evil 4 for 65% off, Resident Evil 6: Complete Pack 79% off, Arizona Sunshine 20% off, and Plague Inc: Evolved for 50% off. Wow, that is a lot of frugal zombie plague-ing!

Reminder that it’s your last chance to get Ryse: Son of Rome (Xbox One) and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations (Xbox 360) as Games With Gold freebies in the Xbox Games Store because those deals end April 30th.

In the PlayStation Store, it’s also your last chance to snag these PlayStation Plus free games: Drawn To Death (PS4), Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime (PS4), Invizimals: The Lost Kingdom (PS3), Alien Rage: Extended Edition (PS3), 10 Second Ninja (PS4 + Vita Cross-Buy), and Curses ‘n Chaos (PS4 + Vita Cross-Buy). These go bye-bye on May 2nd, so get on it, people!

Okay, shirts! There are a few today, so let’s get started. (more…)

Daily Scoop: April 26, 2017 – Humble Fantasy Sale and Steam turns on the Bat Signal

So, I’m still here, and still not Nicole. :( We have had some communique from her, but are still unclear as to her exact whereabouts. But we believe she has most certainly entered the forest by now. We wish her luck during the coming days and weeks and hope her top secret research assignment from an unknown entity has very fruitful results. Onto the sales, kids!

The Humble Store is doing a Fantasy Week sale with up to 80% off a variety of games. They’ve got Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor – Game of the Year Edition for $9.99, Child of Light for $7.49, and Pillars of Eternity (and its expansions) ranging from 40-60% off.

They’ve got a few great weekly deals going on at the Xbox Games Store. For the Xbox One, there is the awesome Axiom Verge for 50% off, and various Madden NFL 17 editions from 50-67% off, as well as Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and Ultimate Alliance 2 each for 50% off.

At Steam, they’ve got serious Batman fever with some crazy Midweek Madness sales on Batman: Arkham Knight and its Season Pass for $7.99 each, as well as Batman: Arkham Origins, Arkham Asylym – Game of the Year Edition, and Arkham City – Game of the Year Edition for $4.99 each. As if that’s not enough Batman, they’ve also got Lego Batman and Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes for $4.99 each, and Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham for $7.49. All these deals end April 28th!

And now shirts, of which there are a bunch today! (more…)

Daily Scoop: April 25, 2017 – Wild Frontier Bundle is now available at Humble Bundle

Hello! I’m still here sitting in for Nicole; thus, you have my condolences. All we know of her whereabouts right now is that she is in South America en route to the Amazon rainforest, or has possibly already reached its moist perimeter, ready to begin her research and correspondence of the aforementioned (in yesterday’s Scoop) secret assignment. This assignment is so secret, we are not even sure who or what assigned it. Anyway, I was not told that this was going to be everyday. I guess that’s what “daily” means, but I thought maybe it was a metaphor? Oh geez, I’m much too lazy for this. Now, the sales!

Since I’m new to this and didn’t do the Humble Bundle yesterday, I guess I should do it today? Maybe? Can we edit out my lack of confidence later? Good. So, the current Bundle of Humbleness (the Wild Frontier Bundle) includes several interesting-looking titles, and if you slap $13+ down on the imaginary countertop, you can also imaginarily walk away with Gods Will Be Watching, Ice Lakes, Frontiers, Hard West, Renowned Explorers: International Society, Spintires, and (the one I’m vaguely excited about) Slime Rancher! How does one even ranch slime? There is so much I, and perhaps we as a society, have to learn about slime, but I can’t wait to find out!

And a quick reminder that Humble’s Intergalactic Bundle ends in a few hours, and includes these games: Space Hulk Ascension, Sins of a Solar Empire: Trinity, Galactic Civilizations 2, Planetary Annihilation: Titans, Rebel Galaxy, Galactic Civilizations 3, and Offworld Trading Company. Hurry up if you want these!

Elsewhere at the PlayStation Store, there is a weekly special on Tom Clancy games including Ghost Recon: Wildlands, The Division, Rainbow Six: Siege, and several others for the PS4 and PS3. It’s definitely worth a look!

Over at Steam, there are two particular games I wanted to mention, and they are Superhot on sale for $16.74 and Flinthook for $13.49.

So grab yourself some games! Good night! Oh, do you want shirts, too? Okay… (more…)

Daily Scoop: April 24, 2017 – Nicole is on top secret assignment

Hi, Scoopers! I’m not Nicole. Sorry about that. Nicole is on top secret assignment in the Amazon, or possibly she’s just using Amazon.com, and will be away for a bit. But, fear! I am here! Yes, I did mean that rather than “never fear,” because she has set really high standards for the Scoop (plus she scares me a little) and I do not want those angry Hogwarts-esque Howlers delivered by toucan when I screw this up! Now, to the sales!

There are several eye-gougingly great sales (as in, if you were trying to buy these games in a store, the deals are so good that you’d all be trying to gouge other shoppers’ eyes out to get them? Okay, I need to work on my adjectives, noted). Amazon has a good sale today on Lego Dimensions and its expansions, including 25% off the Starter Pack and 25-50% off Level Packs including Portal 2, Doctor Who, Sonic the Hedgehog, Back to the Future, and Scooby Doo.

Steam has Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 for 25% off until noon (Eastern Time), as well as an all-day deal on The Flame in the Flood for $7.49.

GOG is doing Full Throttle Remastered for $11.99. Also at GOG, Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell is $3.74, plus you can get the Full Series Bundle (which also includes the Devil’s Workshop Pack add-on, Saints Row 2, Saints Row: The Third, and Saints Row IV) for only $24.45. Not too shabby!

Now for shirts! (more…)

Daily Scoop: March 28, 2017 – Hyper Light Drifter on sale at Steam!

It’s just one week until Persona 5 hits my PlayStation 4, and I’m not sure what to play in the meantime! I don’t want to start anything that will last more than a week, but I also don’t want to not play anything. But to be honest all I can think about is Persona 5, so what’s the point? Maybe I’ll just watch television for a week.

Anyway, let’s talk about Persona 5 – I mean, today’s deals! First up is the Humble Hooked on Multiplayer Bundle, which just went live! Pay $1 for Tricky Towers, Eon Altar Episode 1, and Primal Carnage: Extinction. Beat the average to unlock Move or Die, Ultimate Chicken Horse, and Rampage Knights. Finally, pay $10 or more to unlock Helldivers and the Ranger Pack DLC.

There are some amazing deals happening at Steam as well! The Midweek Madness is one of my favorites, Hyper Light Drifter. Get the game alone for $9.99, or get the game and the soundtrack for $12.49.
