Star Wars Humble Bundle – Pay What You Want ($28 Value)

Star Wars Humble Bundle   Pay What You Want ($28 Value)

Humble Bundle always has fantastic bundles available where you can pay what you want for the games. However, when I saw a special Star Wars edition pop up in my in box, I just knew I had to mention it. Pay what you want (seriously!) for three Star Wars games on Steam.

You can purchase the first three Star Wars games in this bundle for as low as $0.01. Those games are:

Now, that is a great little bundle there. You get three games – total value of $28.47 – for whatever you want to pay for them. If you love storm troopers, the Death Star, a certain Dark Lord, and more… these games are going to be just what the doctor ordered.

These are not some B-rated games either. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic has a Metacritic score of 93/100. The reviews on Steam are also very positive with many reviewers declaring it the best Star Wars game ever:

1.Amazing Story
2.Great and Addictive Combat
3.Tons Of Side Quests
and finally 4. BEST GAME I EVER PLAYED!!!!!!!!!

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is no slouch either with an 81/100 metascore and overwhelmingly positive user reviews on Steam. The reviewers love both the single-player mode and the incredible multiplayer community that still draws a following many years after the game was published.

Lastly, Star Wars: Dark Forces is a smaller game with very positive user reviews as well. This is an older game (1995), so expect the graphics to represent the times, but you will still enjoy the good game play and solid story line. You may even make it past level one this time around.

But wait, there is more! If you pay over the average (currently $10.27), then you will unlock three more Star Wars Games. On top of that, if you pay $12 for the bundle then you receive an additional three games (one is a Gold pack). According to Humble Bundle, for a mere $12 you can have $111 worth of Star Wars games. I have to say, that is a pretty hot deal.

If you want to gift this bundle to a deserving friend or family member, then just remember to check the appropriate box at the bottom.

Canadian Freebies: Absolutly Free Games on Steam

Canadian Freebies: Absolutly Free Games on Steam

I mentioned a bit ago that there are often ‘Free to Play’ games available on Steam. They change over often so there is often something new and exciting to try out in your spare time. However, there are also some completely free games on Steam. That means they are yours not only to play, but also to keep.

Usually these games are pretty short and they are all indie games. However, it is a great way to experiment with new genres, ideas, and just have some free fun. Here are just a few of the games available for free:

This is just a taste of the free games available to play on Steam right now. To find others, go to Steam Search and type in “free to play” – you can also type in “free” but it gives you 3x the results and most aren’t free. The “Free to play” search will bring up all the free to play and the actually free games. You can see the difference in the screen capture below:

Canadian Freebies: Absolutly Free Games on Steam

The first two games are actually free – to keep – while the third is only free to play but could be withdrawn at a later time. I just picked out the first eight I saw, but there are loads of these games on Steam just waiting for you to find them. There is no need to throw money at Steam for anything but your favourites when there are plenty of free options.

I am downloading Sigils of Elohim as we speak. I LOVE puzzles games but my old favourite (Jewels of the Oracle) is very outdated and they really have not come out with anything to equal its splendour. I am hoping this sweet little free puzzle game will be just the distraction I need when I want to relax.

I will probably download Amoung Ripples as well. It is a cool little indie game where you control a pond’s ecosystem by adding different creatures to it. See how your creatures interact and create a cool little underwater eco-system. This is also a fun game to entertain your cats.

When you download your free games, let us know which ones you choose!

Canadian Freebie: Free Radical Roach on Steam @ Indie Gala

Posted by on January 26, 2015 at 2:52 PM

Canadian Freebie: Free Radical Roach on Steam @ Indie Gala

Do you love free games? Then request your free Steam Key for Radical Roach Deluxe Edition at Indie Gala. The game is valued at $7.79, but is on sale for $1.16 this week at Steam Powered. No matter what you want to consider the ‘value’ of this game, either way you will pay $0 for it.

The steps are simple. Enter your email address in the banner near the top of the page that shows the free Steam giveaway. You can uncheck the newsletter box if you do not want to be subscribed. Click “Redeem” and then fill out the captcha. You will then receive two emails. Click through one to access your Indie profile and find the Steam Key redemption area through there. It should look something like this:

Canadian Freebie: Free Radical Roach on Steam @ Indie Gala

Then you just click the Steam button and it will take you through the redemption process for your key. You can also gift the key to someone else. However, once you do that you will be unable to access it yourself.

According to Steam, Radical Roach is a:

fast paced shoot em’ up, set minutes after nuclear hell falls from the sky engulfing all but a few tough little bugs.

The game was just released in May and features a very explicit warning that the game is HARD. This is a single-player game where you need to defeat a barrage of enemies on every level. There are no power-ups so things are going to get bad in a hurry. Some people complain about the lack of variation on the game, that each level is like the previous one (except harder), while others praise the funny artwork, fun characters, and interesting story line.

I think the art looks pretty cool and the price is right. So why not pick this little game up and add it to your collection? I have no idea when this deal will end, so you better take advantage of it sooner rather than miss out.

Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth Free to Play & 40% Off @ Steam

Posted by on January 15, 2015 at 4:00 PM

Sid Meiers Civilization: Beyond Earth Free to Play & 40% Off @ Steam

There goes my weekend! Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth (you know that edition they just released THIS FALL) is now free to play on Steam for this weekend only! This is huge news my lovely gamers!

Three days of free game play for one of the greatest franchises to grace the PC is nothing to snivel at. This newly imagined edition to the Civilization franchise takes conquest, expansion, and domination off a ‘normal planet’ with human like Barbarians, resources, terrain, and water. This time, you get to deal with alien life forms, new resources, different factions, and learn how to survive beyond Earth.

I will admit that I have not yet bought Beyond Earth. I am still revelling in Civilization V with the New World expansion on top of Gods & Kings. I try not to waste every Saturday morning gaming, but a few times a month I cannot recall doing much else. It is relaxing, fun, and great strategic planning for taking over the world.

Now, you have three days to enjoy playing Beyond Earth free. You will need to download the game to your system, and then you are all set. If you get addicted (don’t blame me!), I have some other good news for you. Right now, Beyond Earth is on sale for 40% off. Originally $49.99, the game is on sale for $29.99. This is $5 cheaper than the game cost during the large Steam end of year sale I blogged about back in December.

Now, the reviews for this game on Steam are truly a mixed kettle of fish. 55% are positive, which means 45% are negative (see? I did math right there). That is odd as the game has a metacritic score of 81/100 (quite good). Metacritic is seen as THE authority on gaming these days. There seems to be a large gap between the critic’s scores and the gamer’s scores. My guess is that fanboys came into the game with a set of expectations that were not met. Half the fanboys want Civilization V (with all the DLCs) but in space. The other half want something that does not remotely resemble Civ V and are pissed that it has elements of that game in it. Personally, I say play it for yourself and always keep an open mind. Never let the masses tell you what you should like.

7 Games Free to Play @ Steam Powered

Posted by on December 23, 2014 at 3:00 PM

7 Games Free to Play @ Steam Powered

We are all hiding the mail and burning our credit card statements around this time of year, right? Rather than buying some more games this year, Steam has set up seven games you can play for free. A penny saved is a penny earned, right? I wish.

No, you do not get to keep a copy of these games permanently, but you still get to play them for free and have a jolly good time doing so. It is almost as good as keeping them except it takes up less space on your hard drive in the long term. While we occasionally see the odd Free Play promotion from Steam or Origin, it is rare to have so many options.

Without further ado, here are the seven games you can choose to play for free:

School of Dragons is totally designed after How to Train Your Dragon. Therefore, if you or your kids are a big fan then this will be a sweet little game to try out. Might also keep the little eggnog hoovers out of the kitchen while you cook the Christmas turkey. The graphics look totally wicked and the dragons are incredibly accurate to the movie! I thought I would be most interested in Lost Sage, but I think School of Dragons looks better overall.

Lost Saga NA still catches my attention. Anime style characters battle it out in a fighter / brawler style game. Think the Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter arcade games from way back and you totally have the idea. Choose from 60 different characters and kick some royal butt.

Fork Parker’s Holiday Profit Hike totally threw me for a loop with a name like that. After reading a bunch of comments, it appears to be a game much like Mario with a storyline around some guy trying to finance an indie game. One reviewer said:

I started this game with $100 and now have a crippling debt of $395000. That’s worse than college.
Profits are downnn!!! 10/10

It sounds like most people are having a lot of fun with it, and best of all it is free to play.

2014 Holiday Sale Now On @ Steam Powered (Up To 90% Off LOADS Of Games)

Posted by on December 21, 2014 at 5:45 PM

2014 Holiday Sale Now On @ Steam Powered (Up To 90% Off LOADS Of Games)

Calling all gamers: you will be excited to know that Steam’s annual Holiday Sale is now live and until the second day of the new year, you can save up to 90% off (if not more) plenty of games.

New deals are made available every day until 1pm EST the next day and there are also plenty of flash sales to take advantage of as well.

Today, for instance, you can get Skyrim (featured in the image above) for just $5.49 instead of its regular price of $21.99. Considering the immense popularity of this game, this is an amazing discount and one you shouldn’t miss if you have been meaning to give this epic game a try.

Make sure to read the reviews as they are absolutely hilarious and show just how addicting and awesome this game truly is. Here’s one such review:

If I had to choose between this game, and my girlfriend. I’d pick this game.
EDIT: I’m single now.

If you want something else to keep you occupied for hours on end, then Portal 2 is 80% off. Right now, you can get it for just $4.39 (reg. $21.99), although if you haven’t played the first one, then you can also get a Portal 1 & 2 bundle for just $5.59 (reg. $27.99). It’s essentially a puzzle game that traps you in various situations. You have to get out of intricately-detailed rooms by creating portals and hopping around from place to place.

This game too also has plenty of very interesting reviews that make you wonder how those reviewers had the time and creativity to come up with those. Here’s one such review:

BEFORE YOU BUY THIS GAME
- Note that after playing this game your brain WILL explode (with knowledge)
- Understand that your IQ will increase
- May contain traces of Smooth Jazz
- Know that this game is awesome

Don’t worry about missing out on discounts as once you click over to Steam’s website, you will be able to see “yesterday’s” deals as well. To give you an example, NBA 2K15 is on sale for $46.89 (reg. $69.99), which is a 33% discount.

By scrolling all the way down, you will also be able to see all of Steam’s 6187 games on sale… yep, that’s just how major their holiday sale is!

Steam Exploration Sale Featuring 90% Off Battleblock Theater – Now $1.69

Posted by on November 26, 2014 at 5:44 PM

Steam Exploration Sale Featuring 90% Off Battleblock Theater   Now $1.69

Steam is indulging in an Exploration Sale with feature deals that last a couple days and daily deals that are released at 2 PM EST each day. One of today’s daily deals is Battleblock Theater for a breathtaking 90% off. Originally $16.99, the game is now on sale for $1.69.

The game sounds wicked awesome. You are on a quest to free over 300 of your closest and dearest *cough* imprisoned friends from some evil technological cats that are trying to rule the world or run a circus or something. The game style looks a lot like Mario and you can even build your own levels to screw with your friends. It will probably be the best entertainment you have had for $2, much better than that bouncy ball you got out of that giant gumball machine.

Steam has a plethora of great deals on other games right now as well. Here are some of the highest discounts:

Some recently released games are included in this sale for those holding out on the most recent edition of their favourite franchise. The Evil Within was just released in October this year, but the game that usually retails for $66.49 is on sale for just $22.60.

I do not play many games on Steam Powered, but Sid Meier’s Civilization series happens to be the one I play most. I have not bought the most recent release, Beyond Earth, as I am not quite ready to step off the planet I know and love so well. However, this sale brings Beyond Earth, which was released near the end of October 2014, down to $34.99, from $49.99.

While scrolling down through the immense number of games on sale I ran into many quirky ones like this BIT.TRIP Presents… Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien for just $1.35, originally $16.99. This game rather reminds me of a Sonic the Hedgehog racing game where you run instead of drive around and collect gold while navigating obstacles and hitting power ups. Reviews say that the music and scenery are worth it even if you suck at playing the game.

Be sure to check back tomorrow after 2PM EST to see what other amazing games will be on sale.

Newegg Canada: Digital Games Sale – Save Up To 70% On Square Enix Titles

Posted by on October 22, 2014 at 10:30 AM

Newegg Canada: Digital Games Sale   Save Up To 70% On Square Enix Titles

Newegg is currently having a digital games sale, which should please PC Steam users. Right now, you can save up to 70% on a deep selection of Square Enix titles, which includes familiar games like Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light ($2.99 - was $9.99), Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut ($6.99 – was $19.99), and  Sleeping Dogs ($6.99 – was $19.99). What’s great about purchasing digital games is the fact that you can play the games that you bought shortly after purchasing them! This sale is on until October 24th, so take advantage of these sales while you can.

This is one sweet sale from Newegg. From Tomb Raider to Kain & Lynch, there are plenty of familiar franchises that you can find here. Some other great games that are worth checking out here include Thief ($10.49 – was $29.99), Tomb Raider: Anniversary ($3.14 - was $8.99), and Hitman Absolution Professional Edition ($10.49 – was $29.99).

Seeing a good mix of older and new games in this sale started to make me feel a little nostalgic. I first played Tomb Raider on a demo disc for the Playstation 1. Remember how awesome those PS1 demo discs were? They would be packed with tons of playable demos, so you would be able to try out a myriad of different games before you purchased them. Anyways, when I first tried out Tomb Raider (it was Tomb Raider 2), I thought the controls were slightly clunky and unresponsive, but it was still a cool game. The newer Tomb Raider games thankfully have much better controls, and look fantastic, too!

Hitman Absolution Professional Edition usually sells for $29.99 on Amazon’s American website. Listed below is a brief review of this game from a satisfied Amazon customer:

I gave it a 5 out of 5 stars because it is a game with an interesting story line, many ways to fulfill objectives, and has plenty of replay-ability. I usually steer away from 1 player games because I like the dynamics of playing against human opponents. With this Hitman I have gone back and tried new ways of taking down enemies and used different locations to draw or distract my victims.

If you enjoy playing PC games, and you’re a fan of Square Enix, then do yourself a favour and check out this deal. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Steam Powered: Play 10 Games for Free Weekend

Steam Powered: Play 10 Games for Free Weekend

I am a huge lover of Steam. They have been a blessing for all PC gamers. This weekend they are merely reminding us of how awesome they are with a free play weekend. Play 10 games free from Thursday through Sunday.

You can choose from the following 10 games. You do not even have to choose, load up on caffeine and play all of them.

Through each link, you will find a ‘play game’ button. These games are free to play until the 19th October at 1:00pm PST.

Did your weekend suddenly clear? I think mine did. I have wanted to try out Don’t Starve for a while just because I enjoy the drawing style. It looks a lot more like a raw sketchbook style than the usual highly polished styles of most games. Trine 2 sounds like a game I would like as well. You get to journey through a fantasy world and solve physics based puzzles. I am a huge puzzle lover so this sounds like my cup of tea.

Most certainly, I will be testing out Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition. We play it on my mate’s tablet. However, the PC version is more extensive and I am dying to know what additional little goodies are in it. I am hoping Martian Manhunter has been added as a character you can buy because I love the boy. I read one review that said:

I hadn’t played a fighting game such as this in ages. I loved it! The storyline was interesting and the fighting a great deal of fun. A nice feature is the additional costumes you unlock as you play the game. If you enjoy this type of game and love DC Comics you can’t not get this game. 8/10!

Wait, you can unlock costumes? I am so sold! At the heart of this warrior is still a girl who loves to play dress-up. Hello Steam, goodbye weekend! I might have to cancel that games night with hubby’s coworkers… I am… erm… sick. Steam Powered: Play 10 Games for Free Weekend

Is anyone else excited about this freebie from Steam? If so, then drop me a line and let me know what games you are going to play.

Steam Powered: 75% Off Select Paradox Publisher Game Bundles

Posted by on October 5, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Steam Powered: 75% Off Select Paradox Publisher Game Bundles

Steam Powered really has been loading up their platform with astronomical game deals. Right now you can get up to 75% off Paradox Publisher games all bundled up for great savings.

The Magicka Collection includes 23 items for just $9.99 (was $39.99). You get the original game plus 22 DLCs to expand your play and have the most fun ever. The original game cost $9.99 retails so you are pretty much getting the downloadable content for free. Essentially, the game is you learn to cast spells and make it fast or your butt is going to be fried. Here is what one review says about Magicka:

[it] is one of the best Local-Multiplayer/Co-Op/Versus games in all of Steam. I was a late buyer so I got to skip all the supposed bug-fest, but let me tell you this: Right now, Magicka is a blast to play with friends.

Looking for world domination? Give Europa Universalis IV Collection  a try for just $25 (was $99.99). It includes Europa Universalis IV and a load of expansions and DLCs. From what I have read and seen, it appears a lot like Civ in that you are building an empire and trying to dominate the world. Your own personality comes out in playing style and in the way you attempt to achieve world domination. This reviewer certainly hit it on the head when he said:

Lost my kids, wife, and job but I restored the Byzantine Empire to it’s former glory.

Having played the Byzantines in Civ, I even know what he is talking about.

The Crusader Kings II Collection is one of the biggest packs you can purchase during the sale. The set includes the base Crusader Kings II game and 42 DLCs! The collection is valued at $159.99 but you can buy the entire thing for $40. That is less than $1 a DLC including the original game. It is hard to find a better deal than that folks! I think the reviews for this are awesome:

The best incest, murder and eugenics map painter around.

Great game. I ruled the new Roman Empire as a homosexual eunuch drunk who liked gardening until I was killed by a manure bomb.

I thought I was a moral person. I was wrong.

There are many other collections on sale that you just have to check out. With prices this low, you cannot go wrong with picking up a new game.

Humble Bundle: Leading Ladies Bundle – 4 Games On Steam ($79 Value) | Pay What You Want!

Posted by on September 27, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Humble Bundle: Leading Ladies Bundle   4 Games On Steam ($79 Value) | Pay What You Want!

It’s safe to say that Humble Bundle has some interesting sales! For instance, today’s sale is for a bundle of 4 Steam games that feature leading ladies that retail for $79 combined – the price is whatever you want it to be. You can choose to pay next to nothing, or you can pay whatever you feel like paying. Either way, whatever you end paying will go to whoever you want it to go to – either the developers of the games, or the Girls Make Games scholarship fund. Hooray for good causes! Plus, since these games are for Steam, you’ll be able to play them on your computer shortly after downloading them!

The games that are included in this Leading Ladies Bundle are Lilly Looking Through, Ms. Splosion Man, The Cat Lady and Defender’s Quest: Valley of the Forgotten. If you pay $6 more than whatever you end up paying for this bundle, you’ll also be able to get the games Long Live The Queen and The Yawhg. For $10 more than whatever you end up paying for this Humble Bundle, you’ll also be able to download Valdis Story: Abyssal City.

These titles are new to me, but this is a deal that should have some members of the Steam community excited. After all, it’s for a good cause, and you also get to play some new games along the way! The one that’s catching my eye is Ms. Splosion Man, which looks like a pretty fun game.

There are many great Steam deals that have been coming out of the woodwork for these past few weeks, so it’s a great time to be a PC gamer! I’ve included a snippet of a review for Defender’s Quest: Valley of the Forgotten from a Steam user below:

Kinda interesting story, good sound and soundtrack and easy to hop into. Graphics are retro and are nicely done. Had lots of fun with this game, so definitely recommended!

This Leading Ladies Bundle will be on sale until October the 2nd. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Steam: 75% Off Valve Complete Pack Games Bundle (Includes Portal 2 and Left 4 Dead 2) | $146 Value Only $25

Steam: 75% Off Valve Complete Pack Games Bundle (Includes Portal 2 and Left 4 Dead 2) | $146 Value Only $25

Steam has been having some fantastic sales lately. In fact, you can even check out Avigayil’s post yesterday about Steam’s Tripwire bundle deal. However, today’s deal should also garner a fair amount of attention. Until October 1st, you can save on this huge Valve Complete Pack Games Bundle, which includes 24 games and expansion packs in total – normally $99.99, you can now get all of these games for the low price of $24.99! You’ll be able to quickly download these games right onto your PC or Mac computer, so you won’t even have to worry about any shipping!

There are many familiar and vastly popular games in this Valve Complete Pack. Some of them include Portal, Portal 2, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Half – Life 2, and Left 4 Dead 2. And these are just some of the 24 games and expansion packs that you can get for the grand total of $24.99!

I remember playing Portal 2 a few years ago on my Xbox 360, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Even though I didn’t complete the game, multiplayer was a lot of fun. Left 4 Dead is another enjoyable game in this package where you battle – you guessed it, hordes of zombies!

Left 4 Dead 2 currently sells at WalMart for $14.96, while Portal 2 sells on Amazon for $15.68. Both of those games combined is surprisingly more expensive than this Valve Complete Pack deal on Steam, which includes 24 games and expansion packs. I’ve included a brief review of Left 4 Dead 2 from a satisfied Steam customer below:

Even though this game is over 4 years old it still holds up as being one of, if not THE best zombie game on the market. It’s not only fun playing single player but it’s hilarious when you can get three more friends to join in the zombie killing.

This pack of games will only be on sale until October the 1st. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

All prices are in USD.

Steam Powered: 75% Off Tripwire Bundle Now $24.99 ($188.77 Value)

Posted by on September 24, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Steam Powered: 75% Off Tripwire Bundle Now $24.99 ($188.77 Value)

Steam Powered has an awesome mid-week deal for all you gamers out there. Pick up the Tripwire Interactive Bundle (March 2014 edition) for just $24.99, originally $99.99.

The bundle has an actual value of $188.77 if you were to buy the games and packs separately right now at their going rates (including current sales prices). Take out the sale prices – price the games at their regular full price – and this bundle would be worth $218.77.

The bundle includes the following games:

You get six games with this bundle with a total value of $90 retails. Then you get a positive steam load of Character packs and Weapon packs for Killing Floor. You seriously get set up with that game. I counted 12 character packs and 6 weapon packs ranging in price from $4.99 to $7.99 apiece. That is a lot of sweet DLC for your new Killing Floor game. It is also what gives this bundle such high value.

Just for a little price comparison, the Tripwire Bundle that you are picking up for only $24.99 includes the entire Killing Floor Bundle – the game plus 18 DLCs. The Killing Floor Bundle as a stand-alone package retails for $49.99 USD on Steam Powered right now. You get that bundle for half price, essentially, and then five extra games on top of it. Are you dancing for joy yet?

I have never played any of these games before, so I am not the best to make any suggestions as to what one to play first, or which character totally rocks. However, these games all rank very well on Metascore with the primary attraction, Killing Floor, receiving a 71/100 rating. Out of the group, Rising Storm has the highest Metascore at 82/100 – a very solid score.

I seriously have no idea why you would not buy this if you like any of these games. Seriously, it is $25. What are you waiting for? Do you have a friend that likes this kind of games? Good. Buy this bundle and gift it to him/her and you will be most popular friend for a good while! This bundle makes an amazing gift for you or for others.

All prices are in USD.

Steam Powered: 75% Off Most Warner Brothers Games

Steam Powered: 75% Off Most Warner Brothers Games

There is a big sale going on at Steam right now and my entire household is drooling over it as I type. Receive 75% off most Warner Brothers games on Steam. Be quick! This offer ends tomorrow.

My husband and I are both games. We excel at different types of games (I beat the crap out of things, he is an excellent strategist) yet, we both enjoy playing games with fighting and strategy. Recently, my husband has been positively addicted to Injustice: Gods Among Us on his tablet. He loves to build up the DC characters (both heroes and villains), equip them with gear, level up their abilities, and battle them. However, he calls me ‘the master’ because I totally kick ass whenever I do a battle for him, as it is my forte. Right now, Steam has Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition on sale for just $7.49, down from $29.99 US. The ultimate edition would totally kick ass and I know my husband really wants this game. Maybe I shall buy it as a present!

I excel at fighter style games even though I primarily play strategy games – funny isn’t it? Maybe it comes from playing fight style games in the arcades when I was supposed to be doing laundry. Either way, get me behind a controller playing something like Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition and my competitive side kicks in. Mortal Kombat is a legend in fighting style games, and is probably one of the first games I ever played. The action if fierce and you have a good selection of characters. Originally $19.99 US, this game is now on sale for $4.99 US.

Now, for something a little less mature. I have a secret deep well of love for Scooby-Doo. Recently when Amazon Canada has The Complete Scooby-Doo: Where Are You? Collection on sale, I had to buy it. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that I am drooling over the Scooby Doo! & Looney Tunes Cartoon Universe: Adventure which lets me help Scooby, Shaggy and the rest of the Mystery Machine Gang solve a mystery! You can also solve a Loony Tunes mystery, but I am really only interested in the Scooby Doo part. Originally $19.99, the game is now on sale for $4.99 US.

There are many Warner Brothers titles included in this same including their legendary LEGO series. You must check this out!

Monkey Island “Talk Like A Pirate Deals” 75% off @ Steam (PC Games)

Monkey Island “Talk Like A Pirate Deals” 75% off @ Steam (PC Games)

One of my all-time favourite point and click gaming adventures is the Monkey Island series. AAAAAAAArrrrrrrr! And just now, there’s a special deal happening to celebrate “talk like a pirate day” (which was yesterday), in which Steam are offering a 75% discount on some of the individual Monkey Island games or bundles.  Here’s the info:

If you’ve never played Monkey Island before, then you might want to start your foray into the gaming world with some of the individual games:

The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition for $2.50: This is the first game in the series and it’s just fantastic. I still remember how many days I lost just clicking around trying to solve the puzzles therein. There were also plenty of puns and chuckles peppered throughout, which make the game such fun. In watching the screenshots on the above Steam page, I’m instantly reminded of playing through those scenes in the game.

Monkey Island™ 2 Special Edition: LeChuck’s Revenge for $2.50: I played this one a long time ago, as well. The spitting contest really stands out in my mind as I found it a very difficult puzzle to get through.

But Steam also have some discounted prices on the bundles too:

The Monkey Island: Special Edition Bundle is priced at only $3.75: The special edition bundle includes the two games mentioned above, so it’s a discounted price if you are interested in trying out both games.

The Tales of Monkey Island Complete Pack is $8.75 (was $34.99): the complete pack is a later-released version of the game series, from 2009. I believe I have this one in my Steam account too, but I haven’t yet gotten round to completing the series. This set contains the 5 chapters of this game.

My opinion: if you’ve got a PC, some free time on your hands, and you like humour and puzzles, grab the Monkey Island games. Even if you’ve played them before, they’re a blast from the past and a great way to spend some retro gaming time.
