Humble 2K Bundle brings Bioshock, XCOM, and more

July 9th, 2014 by

humble_2k

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…

Review: Rogue Legacy (Windows)

August 17th, 2013 by

rogue legacy
Rogue Legacy is a brilliant twist on the classic roguelike formula: keep the random levels and permanent death, but make a platformer instead of a traditional RPG. This reimagining definitely causes Rogue Legacy to stand out from the pack of infuriating titles in the genre, but is it worthwhile?

McPixel creator, Sos, wants you to torrent his game.

September 8th, 2012 by

Sos, the one-man developer of McPixel, is running a promo with Pirate Bay. This weekend only, you have the man’s permission to torrent the point-and-click, micro-adventure-game for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

In exchange for the download, how about you Steam gamers do Sos a favor and like McPixel over on Steam Greenlight?

Go and torrent McPixel, now! AND… it’s over. You can pick up McPixel at a discount, though.

Microsoft to bring Xbox Live to Windows 8 PCs.

September 14th, 2011 by

Further validating the original “The Xbox is just a PC” argument, Microsoft has announced that they are bringing Xbox Live to PC gamers with Windows 8. This seems like a strange move, considering I can’t be the only person who bought the Xbox 360 primarily for Xbox Live Arcade.

Trine 2 Co-op Trailer

August 18th, 2011 by

Though I haven’t played the first Trine, I heard that it’s similar to Lost Vikings, which is a good thing. With Trine 2 featuring online/offline co-op, I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on it.

Trine 2 releases this fall for PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, Windows, Mac, and Linux.
