Resistance - Down with the Capitol

Down with the Capitol!

Pin on your Mockingjay and nock an arrow, ’cause the Capitol is going down! Many of us have had the brief pleasure of speeding through the Hunger Games trilogy, and if you haven’t..well, you really should.  It is a blast.

Tap into your inner Katniss with this one-day-only Hunger Games shirt from Teefury.com.  It’s pretty ballin’.  And keep your eyes peeled for more news on the upcoming Movie, The Hunger Games, set to release March 23rd, 2012.

The Incredible Hawk

The Incredible Hawk

As a simultaneous shout out to True Believers and to ornithologists, Threadless has released a design they’re calling “The Incredible Hawk”.  As a fan of Jay & Silent Bob Get Old, I have to assume designers Peter Kramar and Nathan Pyle were inspired by Jason Mewes’ well documented inability to pronounce the word “hulk”.  And, while it’s not exactly my style, I hear yellow is in this season.  Unless you’re Sinestro.  Zing!

Get it here, for the Hulk fan or avian enthusiast in your life.

The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead One-Day Half-Off Sale at comiXology

Today only over at comiXology, the entire series of The Walking Dead is on sale for half price.  That means six issue trades are only $4.99, and those individual issues yet to be collected are only $0.99.  Not too shabby.  If you were a fan of the AMC series, I highly recommend checking out the comic.  Be forewarned, light reading it ain’t.

Get you some here.

Major League RPG

Major League RPG

If you’ve ever played a traditional fantasy setting RPG, you’ve seen this guy.  The skeleton.  He’s everywhere.  But what are his motivations?  What are his hopes?  His dreams?  His favorite Salt-N-Pepa song?

You’ll never know, because you killed him for a measly 4 XP.  Big man with a big sword.  I hope you’re proud of yourself.

Hit the jump for two Ray Harryhausen-produced memorial videos and a shirt that does not celebrate his death, but honors his life.

Frozen Synapse

The Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle

Jeffrey Rosen (@humble) and The Humble Bundle just won’t quit.  Here they go again, offering the world an awesome, DRM free game at the very reasonable pricing of “pay what you want”, with proceeds going to good causes like Child’s Play, EFF, and starving game developers.

In this instance, you’re getting Frozen Synapse, a corresponding Steam code, the game’s soundtrack, AND if you pay more than the sliding average price (currently under $5), you’ll also get The Humble Frozenbyte Bundle.  Twist!

Update:  Trauma has just been added to the Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle.   If you already bought the bundle, you should have it available for download as well.

Check it out.

Skyward Sword

Skyward Sword Gets Orchestral Accompaniment

More details are slowly filtering out concerning the November 20th release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.  Amazon is now offering a pre-order on two different packages.  The game itself is $49.99.  If you’re willing to shell out another $20 (for a grand total of $69.99, Euclid) you get the game and a golden, Triforce emblazoned Wii Remote.  If you need another controller, that’s not a bad deal, considering Wii Remotes currently retail just upwards of $30.

The most exciting part about this (besides, you know, a new Zelda game) is that both packages include a compact disc “featuring select orchestral arrangements of iconic music spanning the history of the franchise”.  Nintendo has been previewing said arrangements in anticipation of the upcoming 25th anniversary of Zelda, and they’re awesome.  You’ve probably already heard it, but for those of you who missed Nintendo’s E3 presentation this year… Read moreRead more

Nike MAG

Nike MAG is “Back For The Future”

In what is probably the coolest charitable effort ever, Nike is producing a 1,500 quantity run of the sneaker from Back to the Future Part II.  Dubbed “Nike MAG”, the shoes are being auctioned off on eBay via Auction Cause, with all proceeds going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

Whether you’re in a position to drop a couple thou on shoes or not, you can still enjoy the star-studded, Nike produced promo video after the jump.

And, seriously, if we don’t get hoverboards by 2015, I’m boycotting science.

Myst

Myst and Riven on Crazy Sale

The utterly confounding Myst and it’s sequel, Riven, are on sale over at GOG.com.  You can pick up both for $2.99 each, this weekend only.  For those of you unfamiliar with the site, GOG stands for Good Old Games, and they offer quality retro titles (and some new ones, like those in the Witcher series) entirely free of DRM.  Good stuff.

The beauty of a game like Myst is that, unlike an unfortunate percentage of newer titles, it doesn’t live or die with its graphics.  The incredibly well-crafted mystery is what will pull you in and keep you there, years after its original release.  I personally challenge anyone to complete both of these games without any sort of outside help (internet, game guides, etc.).  And if you have the constitutional fortitude to attempt such a task, may God have mercy on your soul.

Fractal

Limited-Time Loot: Fractal on Sale for $0.99

Remember back in May when we interviewed Cipher Prime Studios and reviewed their newest offering, Pulse for the iPad?  Well if you’re anything like us, after you played Pulse, you went back to the Cipher Prime website and checked out their other titles, which at the time were Fractal (for Mac and PC) and Auditorium (for most platforms out there).  If you aren’t like us, then you didn’t play either of these games yet and missed out on a great time with both.  You also have a distinct advantage, however, since the guys over at Cipher Prime just put Fractal on sale for a mere 99 cents in celebration of tomorrow’s release of the game for iPad.  The sale only goes until tomorrow morning, but for only $0.99, you get the full, DRM-free game, plus you’ll get a code for the game on Steam when it comes out later this year.

Check it out here.

The only question left is why you’re still reading this instead of buying and playing this awesome game.  And stay tuned for our review of Fractal for iPad, coming later this week.

Mockingjays

District 13 Mockingjays

While I’m unsure of the use of the hyphen in this design, you can now support your favorite district tributes/rebel uprising just by wearing a shirt!  Which, as we’ve had to tell Wade repeatedly, you do have to do sometimes.

Read the book, buy the shirt (today only on TeeFury), see the movie.  And may the odds be ever in your favor.
