Feral Mac deals – 70% off LEGO Star Wars Complete Saga and Clone Wars

Rather shamefully, I managed to miss the LEGO Star Wars titles off of my Top Five feature on the best Star Wars games last week. This was a massive oversight on my part because, as anyone who's played the LEGO Star Wars games will probably testify... they're brilliant.

For the next 48 hours, we've got 70% off the Mac versions of both LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, and LEGO Star Wars: Episode III – The Clone Wars.

    Unsheathe your sword! Ryse: Son of Rome weekend deal – 66% off

    Let's face it, Ryse: Son of Rome is basically the Gladiator game we all desperately wanted. It's gorgeous, gory, and extremely gratifying if what you really fancy doing after a hard day is hacking barbarians up with a pilum. 

    Daily Giggle: Brotality

    Given how Scorpion and Sub-Zero manage to bury the hatchet in the latest game, I can totally see this happening. [via]

      Mac's back! Up to 75% off on SimCity 4 Deluxe, RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 Platinum, Fahrenheit Remastered

      The Aspyr Mac deals are back, only this time Fahrenheit is even cheaper than before! Once again, there's a triple-threat of tantalising dealtastic treats on Mac-compatible Steam titles.

      First up, it's Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered. Quantic Dream's early effort isn't quite as refined as Heavy Rain, but it's more of a fit for the cinematic genre than Beyond: Two Souls, and the multiple protagonist approach suits the engrossing narrative very nicely indeed. If you like you games stuffed with branching storylines and player-driven narrative choice, this is a classic.

      Top Five... Modern Point & Click Adventure Games

      With Broken Age: Act 2 releasing earlier this week, we thought it'd be good to take a look at some of the best point-and-click adventure games in recent memory. Obviously, the LucasArts and Sierra classics of old like Monkey Island, Gabriel Knight, Day of the Tentacle, and Broken Sword are well-known, but those who proclaimed the genre to be dead in recent years don't know what they're talking about, frankly.

      Without further ado, here are five of the best modern point-and-click adventure games...

      Daily Giggle: Elders React To MKX Fatalities

      The latest in TheFineBros' series of reaction videos is a particularly gruesome affair. I'll be honest, even I winced at a couple of these. I'm also never getting on the wrong side of Cassie Cage ever. EVER!

        Win tickets to the Gfinity Starcraft II Spring Masters II this weekend!

        10 weekend tickets for Starcraft II Spring Masters II up for grabs!

        So, you may have noticed that we recently shacked up with eSports leviathan Gfinity for a cool sponsorship deal for the rest of the 2015 Championships season.

        Well, the awesome starts here!

        What's your stance on paid mods and how would you implement them if at all? #GMGasks

        It's been a contentious few days regarding Steam and paid mods. Valve's initiative to try and monetise modding backfired rather spectacularly, and not even an AMA from Gaben himself could really salvage things. So the paid mods programme as we knew it (however briefly) is dead, but there's still a question around modding and compensation.

        Daily Giggle: Fetch!

        Headcrabs always freaked me out, but this sort of makes them seem a little cuddly. You know how sandwiches in cartoons always look amazing, well apparently the 'toon treatment can also make headcrabs seem a little chumbly and cute.

        Alternatively, one kind of wonders how many dead people are off screen to the right :-/
