Holy Sale: Warner Steam Bundle Is A Bit Good

By John Walker on December 20th, 2011.

The Joker loves a bargain.

Edit: We’re reading below that lots of regions outside the UK are being charged a really very much larger sum. Which sucks. Valve will always insist prices are decided by publishers, so yell at Warner. There’s also confusion over the inclusion of Arkham City and War In The North – to be absolutely clear, the Warner Complete Pack definitely currently includes those games, whether by design or mistake. It also seems that some regions can’t see the deal at all. The solution: move to the UK.

I’m never quite sure whether posting about the Steam sale is doing mindless promotion for the company, or alerting our readers to amazing prices for games. I’m going with the latter in this instance, because bloody hell, this one took me by surprise. Not boasted of on the front page of Steam’s decidedly confusing sales page (not including the names of the games on sale is perhaps an odd choice) is the Warner Complete Pack. Clearly one of many extraordinarily reduced bundles (19 THQ games for £50, 80 Sega games for £70 for instance), the Warner bundle brings 18 games for £40, and one of them is Batman: Arkham City. So that’s basically “buy Arkham City, get every other Warner game on Steam free.” And one of those is Bastion. And another is the brand new Lord Of The Rings: War In The North. And of course yet another is Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Lego Of Tradition: On Traveller’s Tales

By John Walker on May 20th, 2011.

They have a really weird thing about bananas.

It’s a mistake, in light of Lego Pirates Of The Caribbean, to accuse Traveller’s Tales of diminishing returns with their Lego series. I keep seeing that happening. It’s wrong. If anything the problem is the stability of their consistency. I’ve had a think about why.

Potters Not Barred: Lego Harry Potter Demo

By Kieron Gillen on June 28th, 2010.

Are those the Weasleys? Many sat that Jamie McKelvie and I are comics' answer to the Weasleys. I think it's an insult, but wouldn't know.

I’m pretty sure that title line doesn’t work at all, but it’s early. So early, that I even posted this story with just the title at 9:27, before I’d written anything. Man! I need more tea. Anyway, it’s later in the day now, and as we mentioned on Friday, the most outstanding literature sequence of the last fifteen years has finally been given its long-expected treatment in Lego. But now there’s a demo. Which you can play, the gaming equivalent of standing in Borders and just reading the first few chapters of the fucker. And to prepare you, here’s the trailer…

Hogwarts And All: Harry Potter Lego Out

By Kieron Gillen on June 25th, 2010.

Harry shamefacedly confessed to his horrified friends that the 'ectoplasm' he filled the pumpkin with was his own semen.

Our favourite apologia of the private school system and quasi-meritocratic racism has finally been all lego-ed up. It’s out today, on pretty much every system, including the one we cover. And here’s the launch trailer…
