Daily Scoop: November 10, 2014 – Evaporated weekend

Well my weekend completely flew by! It was over before I knew it. I saw one of my favorite bands, the Dismemberment Plan, on Friday. It was a blast! On Saturday, Anthony and I met with a friend to discuss our Kickstarter and business stuff, and on Sunday we met with some other friends to catch up at a late brunch. It was a fun and happy weekend! We even managed to get some Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel in there, and I’m coming up on the Elite Four in Pokemon Platinum. I just have to beat it before the new ones come out!

Daily Scoop: November 7, 2014 – Interstellar!

So last night we went to see Interstellar at the IMAX, and it was beautiful! I didn’t love it as much as I loved Inception, but it’s an utterly gorgeous movie – especially if you love space. If that’s the case, then it’s a must-see while it’s in the theater for sure! Oh, and today is the start of BlizzCon, so get ready for an avalanche of Blizzard news coming at you!

There are some pretty great deals today. It’s the Humble Store‘s first birthday! To celebrate, they’re offering Metro 2033 for free! They’ve also got some sales, like TerraTech for $27.99, a pre-order of Valkyria Chronicles for $17.99, and Rogue Legacy for $3.74, among others.

Other than that, there’s just one new sale at Steam – it’s their Daily Deal. They’re offering Men of War: Assault Squad 2 for $8.74, and the deluxe edition for $9.99.

Today has been so dreary – and the perfect sort of day to stay in, snuggled under some blankets, and play video games. I’m heading out into it tonight to go see Interstellar with some friends! I’m excited about the movie, but definitely not excited about the rain. Hopefully they balance each other out!

There are two brand new bundles today. Over at Indie Royale, there’s the Mixer 11 Bundle. Beat the average to get Trace Vector, Circuits, Little Racers Street, Derrick the Deathfin, Dungeon Lurk II – Leona, LightFish, World Truck Racing, and Zack Zero.

The Humble Weekly Bundle has rolled into a new set of games as well – this time, they’re all racing games! Pay what you want for Urban Trial Freestyle, Real World Racing Bundle, and WRC Powerslide. Beat the average to unlock Dirt Showdown and Joe Danger 2: the Movie. Pay $9 or more to unlock Dirt 3.

City of Alamogordo begins selling excavated E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial cartridges

etatarilandfillAs promised, the city of Alamogordo has begun selling some of the unearthed Atari 2600 cartridges found during this Spring’s landfill excavation. Nearly 100 titles are now up for bid on the city’s eBay page including E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, Asteroids, Missile Command, Defender, and many others.

Bidding for all titles began at $50, but the price of the most sought after titles has quickly gone up. Unsurprisngly, the copies of E.T. are currently the most expensive games in Alamogordo’s auction with one copy garnering $520 in bids with eight days remaining (as of this writing). So if you want a piece of history, be prepared to empty out your piggy bank.

For those of you who’d rather experience the Alamogordo landfill excavation for a cheaper price, be sure to log in to Xbox Live on November 20 to stream a free download of Atari: Game Over, a Microsoft-produced documentary that explores the history of Atari and this Spring’s big dig.

Daily Scoop: November 5, 2014 – Quiet Wednesday

It’s a quiet, cloudy Wednesday here in Philadelphia, and I am eager to get home and play some video games tonight. I’m going to put a little more time into Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition, and work on Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel more, too. We’ve hit True Vault Hunter mode and respeced our characters, so we’re still getting the hang of them while taking on the story all over again. It’s actually been more fun the second time around!

There’s not too much going on sale-wise today. At the Humble Store, you can pick up Antichamber for $4.99 and pre-order Fotonica for $7.49. The Daily Deal at Steam is the Worms Collection, which is all the Worms games you can handle for just $17.99! They’re all on sale individually as well, so if you’re just missing one or two, you can pick them up on their own.

Just one shirt for you today!

Today is the launch of yet another Call of Duty game, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. I haven’t gotten hooked on a CoD game since Black Ops, and I’m not going to let it happen again now. Well, OK, I might. But not, like, right now.

Over at Steam, the Mideweek Madness is Banished, which is on sale for $9.99. The Daily Deal is one I’m pretty stoked about – it’s Gauntlet for just $13.39. You can also get a four-pack for $40.19. Grab three friends and get down to business!
