Typical, I book a week off work and come Saturday morning, I wake to rather nasty bout of Man-Flu. All is not lost though as by the power of Grayskull and chicken soup courtesy of my wonderful wife, I’ve had enough strength to lift a single digit and occasionally stab at my iPad screen thus making good headway into this year’s Christmas gift shopping . I find a ratio of one hour shopping to two hours nap time is paramount to speedy recovery.
..and treating oneself always helps too.
So I picked up these bargain beauties this weekend and a few days later, feeling much better, i can now give them a whirl.
Firstly, the latest Humble Bundle contains a huge pack of Zen Pinball tables (MS Win only) for just $1. Pay above $6 and you’ll get access to even more damn fine tables including Star Wars and Marvel/Avengers.
Now I’ll have to admit, I’m more of a Pinball Arcade fan than Zen Pinball and although it’s looks absolutely stunning, the few Star Wars tables I’d purchased for my iPad were a little difficult to play (especially Empire Strikes Back). However, on PC all those little nuances seem to have gone.
At the time of writing, this bundle is active for the next three days so grab it whilst you still can.
And on to Good Old Games next for there 60% sale price of classic FPS games.
Here I picked up the absolute classic – Medal of Honor: Allied Assault Warchest collection which includes both the original game and the two expansion packs for a tanking bustin $3.99!
As always, GOG wraps up the package very nicely with plenty of additional bonus content.
…..and because my original CD is pretty much worn to transparency these days, I’ve also purchased a copy pf Unreal Tournament ’99 (GOTY) for $3.99. Surely a must for any classic LAN party as it’ll run quite nicely on even a netbook.
Although it’s weekend promo and I’m writing this on Monday, you can still purchase these at the discount price for the next 13 hours or so.
