Sleeping Dogs receives new DLC based on the zodiac


Last year, Square Enix’s open world game received a DLC titled Nightmare In Northpoint to celebrate Halloween by letting you beat down on hopping undeads. But now in honor of the zodiac, you may now play the new DLC Year of the Snake that is available for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. Our main character, Wei Shen, is back with the police and is looking for details concerning the Cult of the Snake whom has been participating in a series of bombings. Catch a glimpse of the DLC below in the new trailer.

CBS signed to Deus Ex: Human Revolution based film


Assassin’s Creed isn’t the only series turning into a film, now so is Square Enix’s Deus Ex. The most recent installment of the series Deus Ex: Human Revolution debuted last summer and now the new film will feature an interpretation of the recent video game. There’s no news on who will play the main role for the film, but it certainly won’t be Michael Fassbender. CBS will be working closely with Eidos Montreal and Roy Lee, executive producer of The Departed, and Adrian Askarieh are the two named producers for the upcoming film. As someone who just finished Deus Ex: Human Revolution rather recently, it’s truly an amazing game and I highly recommend it. For a game that hasn’t been out for more than a year, grabbing Deus Ex: HR on a 75% off sale at just $7.49 is an absolute steal. Also The Departed is a great film that I recommend too, of course I’m biased having been raised in Massachusetts.

Indie Gala VI is live


Indie Gala is back after launching its first mobile bundle. Indie Gala VI includes eight games right off the bat. If you pay-what-you-want below the average then you’ll receive just three games: Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines, The Void, and Commandos: Beyond the Call of Duty.

If you want to pay above the average that will also unlock the bonuses in the second week, then you’ll receive five extra games: Commandos 2: Men of Courage, Ion Assault, Air Conflicts: Secret Wars, Cargo: The Quest for Gravity, and Commandos 3: Destination Berlin. All the games are redeemable on Steam and in addition, the price to beat is $6.25 at the moment just $0.26 higher than the starting price to beat of $5.99. The highlight of the bundle certainly is the Commandos series which includes all the games minus Commandos: Strike Force. Then there’s Bitcomposer which has three games in this Indie Gala VI: Ion Assault, Cargo: The Quest for Gravity, and Air Conflicts: Secret Wars. Check out the bundle at the official Indie Gala website and be mindful the bundle ends in 15 days, 6 hours, 40-something minutes. Also your donations will go to Able Gamers and Help for Emilia Earthquake, besides the developer tip and Gala tip.

Below I have included the trailers for the video games. Is this Indie Gala bundle worth purchasing for you?

Hitman: Absolution Sniper Challenge pre-order bonus trailer


Hitman: Absolution receives pre-order bonus play-able before game’s release


Square Enix’s Hitman: Absolution is slated for November 20th. Now there’s a pre-order bonus for the game, the Sniper Challenge. It is a standalone sniper game which will be included in pre-orders on Tuesday, May 15th. The game will allow you to unlock weapons upgrades and create higher scores. There will be “score multipliers” and “secret extras” as well. Check out the site here. The Steam download of Sniper Challenge will be available August 1. Square Enix released this about the pre-order bonus:

“Players can don the suit of Agent 47 as he takes on an exclusive assassination assignment. From a balcony overlooking a rooftop gathering, players will be tasked with taking out Richard Strong, Jr., CEO of Stallion Armaments, along with his entire staff of bodyguards. Skilled players will capitalize on score multipliers, hidden secrets, unlock equipment upgrades and marvel at the many creative ways one can discretely dispose of a body while they work to fulfill their contract in the most efficient way possible.”

Amanita Design’s Botanicula releasing April 19th


Botanicula, like Amanita Design’s Machinarium and Samorost, is another point and click adventure game. However, this new journey will not contain any robots like Machinarium, but instead a various amount of unusual insects and plant-like environments. Developed by Jára Plachý and Amanita Design, they describe Botanicula is “about a bunch of five friends – little tree creatures who set out for a journey to save the last seed from their home tree which is infested by evil parasites”.

There are a couple sites you can pre-purchase this artistic game from.

Good Old Games (GOG) just released their new site featuring loads of Indie games and more popular titles of the past such as Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Assassin’s Creed. GOG is advertising Botanicula at $8.99 (save $1); however on GOG you’ll also receive an array of goodies along with your pre-order. You’ll also receive the following:

  • 19 wallpapers
  • soundtrack demo
  • 35 avatars
  • 22 artworks
  • 12 character cards
  • 3 authors photo
  • 24 design sketches

So pick up your copy here at GOG before the release date hits.

Another spectacular site you may purchase this intriguing game is from the developer! Yes, you’ll pay more, but you’ll also receive the soundtrack as well
and the game is DRM free and cross-platform playable. Check out Amanita Design’s Store.
