Steam Summer Sale will bring Indie Bundles each day


Everyone’s practically awaiting the Steam Summer Sale. I know I am. I have a bunch of games I’d like to try out, but not pay $30 something for them. During the Steam Summer Sale, there will be plenty of bundles on sale, especially indie bundles. There will be an Indie bundle each day of the two week sale. Of course, there will also be publisher packs on sale as well as franchise packs. Take a look below at the Indie game bundles and the confirmed packs. Indie Bundle Day 4 looks like a great one, despite I already have S:S&S EP. A lot of the indie bundles I already have one or two games out of each which I’m sure most people do as well if you constantly buy the plethora of indie game bundles out there.

Dishonored E3 gameplay trailers show plenty of options for the gamer


I’m not sure how this completely passed me by, but I’m excited to post and have watched the new Dishonored gameplay shown at E3. There are two gameplay videos below. The first one shows the Arkane Studios’ game as a complete stealth option, whereas the second video details the assassin game’s more direct approach to dealing with missions.

“Some of them are that we track the number of deaths and innocents that the player kills, and this derives the ending – and also derives some of the little story bits all along the [way].

Game weekend deals on Steam, Amazon, Gamersgate, and more


Weekend Game Deals – Summer is here! *article taken from PC Gamer because it would just be silly to rewrite what’s already been conveniently laid out heh*

at 01:47am June 23 2012

Gather ’round, discount hounds: I’ve tales of summer sales for ye. Steam has augmented Deus Ex prices by 75%, Amazon has kicked 75% off Super Street Fighter IV: AE, GamersGate’s Total War sale has come back for the wounded soldiers who missed last week’s Steam sale, and GOG has initiated 17 days of head-to-head dealmatches. See all of this week’s sales inside! (I promise to use fewer awful analogies.)

STEAM

As you know, Deus Ex games are all 75% off this weekend. There are a few smaller discounts as well, but that’s the big one for this weekend. Oh, except 80% off Bejeweled 3, if you want a game with an exceptional number of ‘e’s in the title.

AMAZON

[US Only] Much remains the same at Amazon, though it’s now selling Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition at 75% off, and both Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 for $5 each.

ORIGIN

Origin is holding a “pre-order one, get one half off” sale. Origin’s deals page lists the pre-orders available and their resulting discounts. Some of them are silly, like 50% off SimCity 4, which is constantly discounted everywhere else. Pre-ordering Dead Space 3 can get you 50% off Mass Effect 3 or Battlefield 3, which isn’t bad…but you have to pre-order Dead Space 3. I prefer to avoid potential early adopter remorse.

GAMERSGATE

GamersGate is selling Total War stuff at 75% off or more, including the complete collection for $24.90.

 

GAMESTOP

GameStop only has a few new sales, most notably Aliens vs. Predator, Saints Row: The Third, and L.A. Noire. GamersGate beats its Shogun 2 sale, and the rest are carried over from last week.

 

GOG

I can’t list GOG’s sales at the moment, because it’s time for… BATTLE OF THE GAMES! Every day two games will be discounted — one at 40% off and one at 60% off — with the bigger discount going to the game with the most votes recorded the previous day. Go get your interactive marketing on, just be sure to vote for the games I want. (Please deactivate your neural firewall for a moment so I can upload my preferences.)

GAMEFLY

GameFly is rather barren this week — the only deal I spotted was the 50% off Payday: The Heist sale that’s being offered everywhere.

Let us know in the comments if you find any deals we missed!

Dishonored PC edition will receive different interface than console versions


Dishonored is an interesting assassin type game that enables you to choose which method you’d like to approach the game such as stealth of just direct combat to take down opponents. Set in Dunwall, a Steampunk Victorian London era city, you are the Empress’ bodyguard that is until you were framed for her murder. The Bethesda published game will be receiving a different interface compared to the console versions, according to co-designers Raphaël Colantonio (BioShock 2, Call of Duty: World at War) and Harvey Smith (Deus ExBlackSite: Area 51) . Colantonio stated, “‘Our background is very PC for sure. And now in this game we have a mix of strong console players and fans, and also hardcore PC people. So both sides are very influential, and in the end, yes, the PC has its own different interface'” (PC Gamer).

Smith added, “’It’s a very cool mix of culture, as Raph was saying. At either location [Lyon and Austin] you’ll have people that are like, super hardcore strong about these PC standards. Obviously with the long legacy we’ve had, it’s a religion. Smith went on to say that ‘the same is true for the PS3 and the Xbox,’ and that the studio’s philosophy is to “step back” and let those who are passionate about one platform influence development there. Achievements, for example, are left to the Xbox evangelists on staff.

If PC standards are truly a ‘religion’ at Arkane Studios, we may be served well, but we haven’t yet verified it with our eyeballs” (PC Gamer).

Bethesda releases launch date for Doom 3 BFG Edition

Bethesda releases Dishonored pre-order bonuses

  • GameStop – Arcane Assassin Downloadable Upgrade Pack & Dishonored Tarot cards

Dishonored’s new E3 trailer murders 21 people by the end


Once-trusted as the bodyguard of the Empress but now framed for her murder, you must clear your name. Known by your distinctive mask, you are a supernatural assassin, who has the ability summon animals like rats, bullet time, and teleport along with loads of other abilities. Taken placed in Dunwall a fictional setting based on 1940s London, you must fight the oppressive government in the plagued city. The developer created the game, Dishonored, with lots of possibilities to approach a situation. You can go into a room head-on charging or you could stealthily take out each individual guard. It’s your choice how you wish to play it and as long as you have fun, Arkane Studios believes they have done something right. Check out the brand new E3 trailer below for the upcoming game that is scheduled to release on October 9th this fall for PC, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3.

*note* Bethesda has confirmed the use of Valve’s Steam for Dishonored; however the website still details Games for Windows – Live which will probably be used for in-store purchases.

Bethesda releases The Elder Scrolls Online debut trailer


MMOs are certainly not going away. Bethesda has just announced The Elder Scrolls Online MMORPG. The game will be based on the popular Elder Scrolls series. In addition, the game has a feature as the cover slot on the upcoming June edition of Game Informer’s magazine. So all you Elder Scrolls fanatics out there, you may purchase your copy of the new Game Informer on May 8th or just wait until the mail for your magazine. Until then, here’s the teaser trailer Bethesda released. Also the release date is slated for 2013 for both PC and Mac.

Brink has sold “more than 2.5 million worldwide”


Seriously, how did this game sell that many copies?! I really thought the Bethesda game was crap honestly. I played a few hours of it when it was free to play one weekend on Steam. It was beyond confusing. You were practically just thrown in quests, which were really just a scurry of following your teammates around the level and shooting crap. I never understood what were the objectives. I just left those people who perhaps knew what they were doing take care of them while I scampered off and killed other players who were trying this game on its free to play weekend. “With Splash Damage, we finished Brink, and it’s estimated to have sold more than 2.5 million units worldwide, which at retail would mean that it’s generated around $120-140 million in revenue,” Studio CEO Paul Wedgewood explained in an article by Gamasutra. He even mentioned Splash Damage teamed up with WarChest, a British publisher, in order to pursue the development of more free to play games. Well good for them, I guess, for selling that many copies of a pretty incomplete and broken game.

The developers, Splash Damage, are in the process of developing a free-to-play iOS game for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch titled Rad Soldiers. the game is set in London and is a turn-based tactical game with animations that reminds me of Team Fortress. The trailer is actually pretty comical. However I think with most people, they’ll really need confirmation of how good this game might be before they buy it, if they pre-order or even order Brink which was a rather letdown (great idea with the parkour, but really needed more development). Check out more details in this Eurogamer article. In addition to Rad Soldiers, Splash Damage is pushing out their AAA PC only exclusive game which will eventually be ported to consoles too. Hmm I wonder what it’ll be.

Prey 2 postponed, but not canceled


Bethesda’s Prey 2 will not be releasing in 2012 as it previously was announced. Instead of it being canceled, which was speculated, the game will be postponed due to the lack of progress by the development team. Bethesda announced the game does not meet the high quality standards it should and wants to make sure this game reaches and goes beyond what is expected of an AAA game.

Upcoming fall releases


I like this article by Matt Bertz, quick and concise and I don’t have to figure out all the releases myself.

Fall Release Schedule Coming Into Shape – By Matt Bertz

UPDATE: Halo 4 has now claimed its spot in the packed release window.

Check out this murderers’ row of highly anticipated games scheduled to ship in the second half of the year.

Ladies and gentlemen, start your saving. If you want to play the biggest games of the year, your wallet warning level will be at Defcon 1 come the autumn months. Here are the confirmed dates we have so far:

Sleeping Dogs – August 17
Dark Souls (PC) – August 24
Madden NFL 13 – August 28
Far Cry 3 – September 4
Borderlands 2 – September 18
Resident Evil 6 – October 2
BioShock Infinite – October 16
Medal of Honor: Warfighter – October 23
Assassin’s Creed III – October 30
Halo 4 – November 6

Add the annual big seller NBA 2K13 to that mix, and you have quite a lineup of titles scheduled to drop before the yearly Call of Duty sales explosion in November. Several other games scheduled to release in 2012 are still waiting for release dates, like Skylanders Giants, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Tomb Raider, Dishonored, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, and Brothers in Arms: Furious 4. If they want to stay clear of the Call of Duty blast radius, we wouldn’t be surprised to see many of these titles shoehorned into September and October as well. Add the rumors of Grand Theft Auto V possibly shipping this year, and It’s shaping up to be an exciting lineup.

Which games are you planning to splurge for first?”
