Square Enix Sale Week – up to 75% off Tomb Raider, Sleeping Dogs, Thief and more


Warner Bros Weekend is sadly done, but welcome to Square Enix Promo Week! Yes, over the next five days we have a frankly ridiculous roster of deals on a vast range of Square Enix titles.

From headline blockbusters like Tomb Raider, Just Cause, Hitman, and Sleeping Dogs to classics from years past such as Anachronox, Legacy of Kain, and Thief, pretty much everything is 75% off.

Daily Giggle | Childhood

I bet if I totted up the amount of time I'd spend scrabbling around under a car trying to fish out balls and frisbees and my sister's Pikachu furbie thing that I once punted out of a window, I could probably have enough to do several playthroughs of MGS: Ground Zeroes.

Mind you, I had the telescopic reach of the abnormally tall and lanky. The chaps above don't stand a chance with their pokey limbs. [via]

Daily Giggle | Transformers Ruin Everything

So I'm aware that this is not directly related to video games, but given that there are Transformers games, I think I can just about make a tenuous justification for posting this today.

Basically, it's an excellently-edited montage of Transformers ruining everyone's favourite films. [via]

Let's Play | Monstrum!




To celebrate Monstrum coming straight out of Early Access, I sat down in my specially lit HorrorRoom(tm) to record a little video to see how long it was before we got scared.

It didn't take long.

Guess N Win - The Digerati Bundle

Welcome to Guess N Win! The most exciting event on the internet since The Ice Cube Challenge! … Was that really that good? … Anyway, this definitely is! If you haven’t participate before, the rules are simple:
  1. I’ll post a portion of a video game screenshot on this forum thread.
  2. If you know the game, post a reply on that thread saying the title of the game.
  3. The first person to guess it, wins the price.
Last week the Playfire community totally destroyed me. I thought they were going to find it difficult to guess the games, but they did it in just seconds after I posted the screenshots. (;¬_¬) Let's step up the game this week!

WINNERS | Critical Hit: May and Block N Load

Thanks massively to everyone who participated in this, and also everyone who took the time to vote. We had a great boost in user reviews, and we'd love to see even more in the coming months too, so we'll have another Critical Hit competition in early June and July as well.

Daily Giggle | Mario Kart Surround Sound


Dolby? Pah! Now this is what I call surround sound. It's also the only way I ever want to play Mario Kart from now on.

COMPETITION | Win Carmageddon: Reincarnation and extra goodies

Carmageddon is back! It's been a long journey for Stainless (read all about it in our interview with Nobby from Rezzed) but the game is out. Carmageddon: Reincarnation's Early Access is over, and full release is upon us.

I've had the privilege of being able to check in with Stainless a few times on this journey, and the dedication and drive from the team has been truly inspirational – Carmageddon is back as a result of their enthusiasm and belief in their product, not to mention years of hard work.

Of course, that's only part of the story. Talk to any member of the team and they'll wax lyrical about the fan response. This chapter of Max Damage and co.'s story began with a Kickstarter campaign that received great support, and Stainless have been listening to their community all the way.

Anyway, the game is out, it's splat-tastic, bursting with features, modes, and extravagant weaponry, and we have 10 Steam keys up for grabs, along with some hilariously rude Carmageddon fridge magnet sets, and Smelly Bush vehicular air fresheners.

Game Nights are back!!!

Daily Giggle | Carte Blanche – OAP Brutality


Pensioners in Outworld don't muck about. Throw an elderly citizen of Kotal Kahn's realm at an enemy and there are no Werther's Originals, no kindly stories from way back when. Nope, instead, they thrown down in brutal fashion.

The woman featured in the video above is named Blanche. Don't mess with her. Ever. [via]

Thanks to jamie for the tip!
