Daily Scoop: August 28, 2015 – It’s finally Friday

So, the good news is, I finished up a full draft of my project! The bad news is, I never want to look at it ever again for as long as I live. That’s usually not a good idea, but I just don’t want to look at it right now. Maybe I’ll wait a few hours and then try!

What I do want to look at right now are deals! There’s a big End of Summer Sale happening at the Humble Store right now. You can get Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones for free until August 31. Hunie Pop is $3.39, Valkyria Chronicles is $4.99, and GRAV is $6.79, among others.

The Weekend Deal over at Steam is Company of Heroes 2. You can play the game for free, and if you like it, snatch it up for $9.99. The Daily Deal is Hand of Fate, which is on sale for $12.49. You can also pick up the DLC for under $4 each.

Just four t-shirts again today! (more…)

Daily Scoop: August 26, 2015 – On the eve of PAX Prime

Still not feeling great, gentle readers, but I’ve had some time to play more Alphabear, at least! And I’m nearing the end of Professor Layton and the Last Specter. I’m not sure what I’ll do next – either watch The Eternal Diva or go back to Phoenix Wright – I’m up to Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney. I’ll get to the crossover eventually!

I’m also sad to announce that I won’t be making it to PAX Prime this year. But I’m watching it fondly through Tweets and Facebook posts from friends! So keep it coming, everyone.

I had an amazingly game-filled weekend! All told, we played 16 board games in two days. I also started playing the adorable Alphabear on my phone.

It’s been keeping me company all day today – I’m home with an awful headache and stomachache that I just cannot kick. So I’m spelling words to try to make me feel better. How about you?
