Humble 2K Bundle brings Bioshock, XCOM, and more

July 9th, 2014 by


Just because the Steam Summer Sale is finished, doesn’t mean that there aren’t PC game deals to be had.

The good folks over at Humble Bundle have teamed up with 2K Games for the Humble 2K Bundle. Pay what you want and get Bioshock and some schlock. Pay more than average (just $7.10 as of this writing) and get Bioshock 2, Mafia II, and Spec Ops: The Line as a reward for your charitable deeds.

New to the Humble Bundle is the third price-point tier regularly found in the weekly bundles. Pay more than $20, and you get Bioshock Infinite and XCOM: Enemy Unknown for your troubles. I’d like to call bullshit shenanigans on them for jacking up the average price, but that seems like a real jerk move when you consider the quality of those two games and that some of the cash goes to charity. If you’re salty about it, make sure to customize your payment and push that slider over to the Charity side. Nothing says angry like begrudgingly donating to the American Red Cross and Action Against Hunger out of sheer spite.

This deal lasts for the next two weeks. More games are sure to be added, seeing as they’ve already stated as much. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Borderlands 2 or, at the very least, some form of Grand Theft Auto.

How crazy would it be if this was how Grand Theft Auto V launched on PC? I’m just saying…

Just Some Playground Fun

I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t recognize all of the characters here – it doesn’t matter – it warms the cockles of my heart all the same. Mad props to lonefirewarrior for arranging these models in such a heartwarming fashion. Is it still okay to say ‘mad props’ in 2014?

Cosmo Canyon Theme (FF7) On The Uke

July 7th, 2014 by

Come mellow out to this oft-overlooked theme from Final Fantasy VII, expertly arranged for the ukelele. Maybe it’s because you never ever hear it, but this tune really brings me back, JNCOs and all.

Because nothing says ‘games’ like a heaping bowl of potato salad, amirite?

The Potato Salad Kickstarter by Zack Danger Brown of Columbus, OH – fully funded in excess of $3,976 at the time of this post – is in full swing with 26 days remaining. Those considering kicking this start with their own money should first consider the risks. “It might not be that good,” warns Zack. “It’s my first potato salad”.

Hands! In The Hadouken? You Betcha.

hadouken hands

For as much time as I’ve dumped into Street Fighter, I can’t believe I never noticed this until now. Ryu’s hadouken isn’t a simply a magical ball of plasma; it’s the very projection of his own two hands. Look! Look into those svelte blue flames and you’ll see them – the echo of his outstretched palms.

Wow. How long has this been going on? The whole time? Are the other shotos all the same? Will I see Dan’s puny fist in his gadouken? My world view has been rocked; my jimmies, rustled.

Relax, And Try To See Things From Mario’s Perspective

Close your eyes, breathe, and lose yourself within the clouds and vast brick pitfalls of World 1-1. But do mind the time limit.

The Lords of Midnight and its sequel are awesome and on sale.

June 3rd, 2014 by

lords_sale The Lords of Midnight, by the late Mike Singleton, is apparently a classic. I’m just going on word of mouth and Wikipedia entries here. Never having a ZX Spectrum (nor an interest in it), I haven’t done my due diligence.

If paying $4.99 for a game that came out in 1984 seems a bit steep, then maybe this is for you. The Lords of Midnight and its sequel, Doomdark’s Revenge, are currently on sale in the App Store and Google Play for $.99 apiece. That’s a price that’s pretty hard to ignore when you consider the nerd cred you get simply by having it on your phone. Ladies love nerd cred, right? That’s gotta be how it works.

Pick them up and let us know what you think. I just started, so don’t be spoiler jerks.

LINE Cookie Run 100 Free Crystals Code

May 28th, 2014 by


Cookie Run Season 2 has started on the LINE network, and with it comes a lot of goodies.

The Sorcerer Cookie brings some powerful Coin Magic to the table. His pet, the Grimiore, should help tons of players get new high scores. Obstacles move and generally try to throw off your timing. It’s slowly starting to look more and more like the Cookie Run I’ve been playing over on the for Kakao network for some time.

To prove it, one of the best features shows up in a Coupon Code. To enter a code, touch the Gear icon on the bottom left of your Rankings screen. Scroll down and tap on the “COUPON” button. Your browser will open up with a code entry box.

Enter the following code to get 100 free crystals: cookierun2ndstory

100 Crystals: 5 Rainbow Eggs, 4 Supreme Treasures, or 15 Treasure Slots? Decisions...

100 Crystals: 5 Rainbow Eggs, 4 Supreme Treasures, or 15 Treasure Slots? Decisions, decisions…

That’s “Cookie Run 2nd Story” for those keeping track at home or may want to pass it along to friends. I got it in three guesses, as the code on the for Kakao version was COOK 2RUN 2NDS TORY last year.

Act now! This code, a $10 value, expires on June 5th at 4PM. Run. Run as fast as you can!
