Daily Scoop: July 16, 2014 – Another day, another deal

We’ve made it to the middle of the week, everyone! And to celebrate, let’s get some games on the cheap, shall we? You can start over at the Humble Store, where they’ve got Blade Symphony for $7.49, The Nightmare Cooperative for $8.99, and Abyss Odyssey for $9.99.

From there, you can head over to Steam for their new Daily Deal, which is Magicite for $4.99, and their Midweek Madness deal, which is Tomb Raider for $4.99. I’ve been waiting for that one to go on an absurd sale – this might be when I finally buy it!

For your last stop, hit up Indie Royale, where they have their latest bundle up, “Blasting Off.” Pay the current minimum for Rogue Shooter: The FPS Roguelike, Echo of the Wilds, Talisman Digital Edition, Terrorhedron, and Swipecard.

Daily Scoop: July 14, 2014 – The Humble Flash Re-Bundle

This weekend, I didn’t play many video games at all, much to my surprise! I headed up to my friend’s cabin out in the Poconos and did a lot of swimming, eating, sleeping, and sitting in the sun. It was absolutely amazing. I brought some games and books but barely even looked at them. I was too busy making s’mores and putting on bug spray! Oh, and sliding down Slip ‘N Slides. I guess technically avoiding bugs could be construed as a game, right?

Anyway, it’s back to reality today, and with that is a Daily Scoop! There’s a new bundle over at Humble today, and it’s the The Humble Flash Re-Bundle: Codemasters. Pay what you want for Overlord, Overlord: Raising Hell DLC, Operation Flashpoint: Red River, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, and Rise of the Argonauts. Pay $6 or more to unlock DiRT Showdown, DiRT 3, and Overlord II. This one will be gone in just 24 hours, so you might want to jump on it fast!

Steam is having a sale called From Paris with Games, which is a sale on all games made in Paris. Grab Blood Bowl: Chaos Edition for $7.50, Remember Me for $10.19, and ShootMania Storm for $4.99, among others.

And now, time for some t-shirts!

Daily Scoop: July 11, 2014 – Friday!

Woohoo, it’s Friday! I can’t wait to head home and dive into some gaming. I bought a copy of Pokemon Platinum when I was at Too Many Games, and I’ve been looking for a moment to hop into it. I think this weekend might just be that time!

There are some terrific games discounted over at the Humble Store today! You can get Project Zomboid for $9.99, the You Don’t Know Jack Classic Bundle for $4.99, and the incredible Risk of Rain for just $3.32. Scoop ‘em up!

But wait, there’s more! The Weekend Deal at Steam is Goat Simulator, which is marked down to $5.99, and their Daily Deal is Sir, You Are Being Hunted for just $5. With so many great games to choose from, which ones will you buy?

Let’s end this with some t-shirts!

Daily Scoop: July 7, 2014 – So many fireworks

The Fourth of July has come and gone, and with it, more fireworks than I’ve seen in quite some time! I had a great time on Friday sitting out in a field and watching the show, all while getting eaten by bugs. It was pretty much how I remember all summer holidays being when I was a kid!
