You know what really grinds my gears? Opening game clients one by one when I want them all to open and update. So I engaged in a little every-day-scripting to stop the grinding. “Code” inside.
I have been wanting to mumble about my experiences testing Linux out on my gaming system for weeks already. And now it’s the last day of August and I don’t want to break the minimum-of-a-post-a-month thing I’ve had going on, so it’s coming at ya all rush-like. Enjoy.
Hmm. I’m treading dangerously close to establishing a trend of only ever posting on here about free stuff. Which is great and all, because free stuff (obviously), but, y’know, doesn’t exactly hit the “credible original content” mark that I have sorta-intentions of hitting.
A sweet little side-scrolling action title by the name of The Expendabros was recently released with extra Freedom. That is, it’s actually free. So you should look past the validity of my claims regarding the title’s “sweetness” (because I haven’t played it or the previous title that it’s based on, so I really have absolutely no idea what it tastes like), and just get on with acquiring a free game. Acquire it here, on The Expendabros‘ Steam page (or right through the Steam client, if, y’know, you’re not stuck in an office reading about things you’d rather be playing because work PCs and the frowned-upon idea of gaming on them). Oh, and it’ll be “available for download until December 31, 2014.” Read more of the rubbish I type about The Expendabros after the jump (there’s a trailer too).
Well, apparently. According to assorted internet sources, the 2014 Steam Summer Sale starts on 19 June 2014. Sources like this thread on the NeoGAF forums, and then this confirmation by Eurogamer, and some of these Google search results.
I’m not certain whether I’m happy with this news. My money all got sunk into a pretty new DeathAdder just last week (review incoming… eventually… probably on the weekend…), so I guess it’s time to start skipping meals (at least those I need to pay for) and avoiding social engagements.
Whatever the case, if it’s not tomorrow, it will be soon. So, y’know, prepare thy wallets.
