Over 100 games will be included in the Indie Megabooth at PAX East 2014

paxeast2014Over the years, the Indie Megabooth has become one of the busiest spots at PAX East and PAX Prime and the 2014 East show is no exception. Organizers behind the Indie Megabooth have announced that 76 games will be permanently installed in the booth with another 28 titles rotating in-and-out of a special “Minibooth” within the Indie Megabooth over the course of the convention’s three days. For the first time, tabletop games will get a chance to shine in the Indie Megabooth. Sponsored by Cards Against Humanity, this selection of tabletop games includes bluffing game These French Fries Are Terrible Hot Dogs, party game Funemployed, and six others.

Other highlights in this year’s Megabooth include Duet, a hypnotic mobile puzzler; Delver’s Drop, everyone’s favorite indie answer to the Zelda franchise; Hyper Light Drifter, everyone’s other favorite indie answer to the Zelda franchise; Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Answer, a sequel to the ultraviolent overhead shooter; and Secret Ponchos, an arena shooter that was one of our favorite games from PAX East 2013. Of course, with 104 total titles, this list of highlights is just scratching the surface of what’s available within the Indie Megabooth.

A complete list of titles that will be playable within the Indie Megabooth at PAX East 2014 can be found after the break. And more information about all of them is available at the organization’s official website. (more…)

Daily Scoop: April 1, 2014 – Yeah, we get it, April Fool’s Day

There are tons of jokes flying around today, and I’ll admit it, some of them are a little funny. I will be seriously disappointed if Fez II is a joke, though. I have been craving that game even more since I re-started Fez on my Vita. Please, Phil Fish, don’t play games with my heart!

Let’s see, what’s up with deals today? It’s the last day you can get the Ludosity Bundle at Indie Royale, and the second-to-last day to get the Humble Weekly Sale, which celebrates open source. There’s also a brand new Humble Bundle: PC and Android 9. Pay what you want for Broken Sword 2: The Smoking Mirror, Bridge Constructor, Type:Rider, and Ravensword: Shadowlands. Pay more than the average for Kingdom Rush and Knights of Pen & Paper: +1 Edition.

Steam has some new deals as well. The Midweek Madness is 75% off Dead Island, marking it down to $4.99. The Daily Deal is 50% off Defiance, putting that down to $4.99 as well. Scoop ‘em up!

The bad news is, there are just two shirts today…

Watch This! Every Super NES title screen in alphabetical order

Do you remember that fantastic YouTube video that compiled the Start Screens of every NES game in alphabetical order? Well, YouTube user “NicksplosionFX” has created a sequel that showcases the Start Screen of every Super NES game ever produced… from 2020 Super Baseball all the way down to some unknown Japan-only release. Oh, and be sure to prepare yourself beforehand, the entire video runs nine hours and three minutes (a full six hours longer than the NES video).

I’ll say it again, God bless the Internet.

Kevin Tancharoen is trying to get Mortal Kombat: Legacy Season 3 made

mortalkombatlegacylogoDirector Kevin Tancharoen has already helmed two seasons worth of webisodes in his live-action Mortal Kombat adaptation, Mortal Kombat: Legacy. But it sounds like he’s warming, some might say getting toasty, to the idea of a third season.

After finishing up Season 2, Tancharoen said that he wasn’t interested in resuming his spot in the director’s chair for a third season. He would later drop out of WB’s third Mortal Kombat feature film as well. Tancharoen’s next move was actually another webseries for Machinima, The Gable 5, starring Eliza Dushku. It’s unknown if we’ll get more than the one episode, but it is another spectacular short film. But if the director has his way, his next project will be Legacy‘s third season. Speaking to Inquisitr, he said:

“We are starting to talk about it [Legacy Season 3] literally this week (knock on wood). I’m starting to talk to Warner Bros. and the video game creators, so hopefully we can see it through.”

He would go on to say that he believes there are still many more stories to tell in the Legacy universe:

“With Legacy Season 1, it was kind of a big experiment. No one has done it before, and we didn’t know if should be an anthology or connected. We did the first one as an anthology and the second one more serialized. In the future, it will definitely be more connected and more cohesive… We all feel right now that we have such a trajectory to the series. There are so many more stories to tell in that format.”

Daily Scoop: March 31, 2014 – Out like a lamb

It’s the last day of March, and according to the old saying, it’s supposed to “go out like a lamb.” It almost feels like Spring out there – with the exception of the biting wind, of course. The sun is shining and there’s that feeling in the air like it could be warm, until you get a blast of cold right in your face. Winter’s fighting to the end!

I’m excited to announce that Spriteborne is now selling amazing TowerFall designs! Pick up glasses or coasters of all of your favorite archers. These are amazing, and perfect to use while you are playing TowerFall. My favorite is the Yellow Archer! Just look at that guy.

Let’s talk about video games! Steam has a ton of brand new Weeklong Deals for you to check out. They’ve also got a new Daily Deal today – it’s The Secret World: Massive Edition for $20.39.

The Humble Store has some new deals today as well. You can pick up Solarflux for $4.99, Crea for $9.99, and Ether One for $16.99.

I’ve got lots of great shirts for you after the jump!

Sorry for not writing yesterday, everyone! I was home trying to get some stuff done, and I ended up doing a lot before I said “I need to game!” and dove back into Infamous: Second Son. It’s just so good. And I might have a tiny crush on Delsin.
