I'm in the middle of a move right now. Very hectic.
Basically a personal note, but things in general are very chaotic now, hence random posting. I hate apartments now. Also starting a new job, so there's all that too. I'll keep a watch on things when I can, though!

The downloadable dream killer is available for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 for 400 MS Points or $4.99. If you've previously purchased the "Season Pass" for Xbox 360, he's the final character in that fighter bunch. PS3 gets its own package, as well, with the $14.99 warrior Bundle that features three other characters: Kenshi, Rain, and Skarlet.

For any of you with the new Mortal Kombat, Mr. Freddy Krueger is available on both PS3 and 360 for 4.99 or 400 MS Points, respectively.

Anyone who bought a Season Pass for the 360 version will find he's the last character there.
The PS3's 14.99 bundle includes him, along with Rain, Skarlet, and Kenshi.

Now that we're adding horror movie icons, and other media villains to the bunch, who would you like to see in the MK Klub?

My vote goes to the infamous Mr. Jingles.

Humble Indie Bundle 3

Now, it's nearing the end of the sale, but for those that haven't checked it out yet:
humble indie bundle

Many popular indie titles are available (VVVVVV, and Cogs, for example) for any price you wish to pay!

Pay over the average price, and you nab many other popular indie games (including Braid (!!!) and Machinarium), which is pretty special.

Also, while not a big deal, but anyone who purchases the bundle also gets access to Minecraft until Aug. 14th!

Also good to know that It's multiplatform (PC, Linux, Mac). DRM free, and proceeds can be distributed to charity.

Going down, down, down!

In just 6 short months, Nintendo has issued a price drop for the 3DS (Now the title is a lot more clever). The new price is $80 cheaper then before, with an MSRP of $169.99 as of August 12.
Those who were early adopters of the system receive 20 downloadable titles (10 GBA, 10 NES) before year's end.

This move is probably brought on by the PSVita, who matched 3DS' original $250 price tag, along with Nintendo's falling profits.
3DS' will be sold at a loss now, but with so many purchasers, hopefully this will give the kick the 3DS needs (although more games would be nice)to finally be successful.

(Insert Preffered Ressurection Item Here)

Back from a long absence, I'd like to announce that I'll be working on Game Deals n' News once more.
As the lazy bag o' bones I am, I might have the regular updates as much as before, but I'll do my best to hit highlights, as well as some obscure pieces of personal interest.
I'd like to kick it off by presenting an old article of The NY Times (21st, to be exact), that's a whopping 6 pages dedicated to Dwarf Fortress here:

The Brilliance of Dwarf Fortress

Now, I myself have difficulty, like many others, getting into the game in the first place, but I certainly admire everything that Tarn puts into the game.
