The RPS Bargain Bucket: Bytes Of A Feather

By Cassandra Khaw on January 24th, 2015.

Confession: I bought Heroes of the Storm’s Founder Pack. Sometimes, even professional bargain hunters are brought low by the seduction of immediate gratification. (Or something. Hi! Are you playing too? You should add me on Battle.Net if so. casshirek#1483 is the battletag in question.) Moving on, this week’s bargains are an entertaining montage of genres. Bundle Stars is the clear winner of the “holy crap, those are some shiny offers they’ve put together” competition, beating out even crowd favorite Nuuvem. This week’s plushie is from kfix! I am nursing a fever. Halp.

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Triple A Threats

By Cassandra Khaw on January 17th, 2015.

We’re about three weeks into 2015, and I’m already bristling with things to tell you about. So many things. All of the things, in fact. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you anything till March, at least. Such an unfortunate thing. Have I abused variations of the word ‘thing’ enough yet? Okay. I thing so. Okay, okay. I’ll stop for real this time. Sure thing. (P.S: That’s a Maneki Neko plushie!)

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Vat Is Going On?

By Cassandra Khaw on January 10th, 2015.

And once again, we’re back, with the new year rolling along like the inexorable vehicle of Death that it is, bringing us all closer to – fuggit. I’m a terrible pessimist. Hello again! And welcome back. Predictably, I’m terrified of VAT and how it factors into the calculation of video games. Some people tell me the distribution platforms will take care of things themselves. Others say no. Will they? Won’t they? I’m choosing to go with the former, at least for now. (Tell me if the prices are wrong. Please? Yes. Yes. Picture a sadface if you do not.) This week’s plushie is from Vesperan, and it lacks the all-important bucket. I’m going to pretend it’s hiding just below camera level, however. That goat thing is that cute.

The RPS Bargain Bucket: End Of The Line

By Cassandra Khaw on December 20th, 2014.

And just like that, the year is over, leaving us a year closer to death, and a year richer in experience. There’s something gorgeously wistful about endings, really. No matter what kind they are. Between you and me, I have a habit of never truly finishing a game. I always leave it just before the last boss, the last fight before the curtains close. It lets me pretend that the adventure isn’t over and I can go back. What about you? Do you have any rituals to deal with endings? (Also, Merry Christmas and have a great New year, everyone.) This week’s bloody adorable plushie is from Melody.

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Weekend of Evil

By Cassandra Khaw on December 13th, 2014.

So many exciting things happened this week and I wish I could share some of it. Alas, I am instead shepherding 13 drunk people around today as the designated sober person, which may or may not entail me worrying about them falling off buildings. Wish me luck. In celebration of this annual event (and because this is my responsibility), have a bucket of bargains and a happy weekend. (Send me plushie photos, darnit all!)

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Good Causes

By Cassandra Khaw on December 6th, 2014.

Pickings feel somewhat slim right after Black Friday. But, in case you weren’t able to spend some moolah then, here’s a bucket of deals for you today. (Have an old picture. I’m stuck outside without my bucket.)

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Bucking the Trend

By Cassandra Khaw on November 29th, 2014.

It’s here. It’s finally here. Black Friday weekend. The capitalistic orgy to end all capitalistic orgies. Not even Christmas is so shameless, so ruthlessly focused on the material. It’s .. it’s glorious, really. If you’re not otherwise busy with turkey comas, this is an excellent time to stalk the various online distributors for deals because it looks like they’re coming in fast and furious.

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Fizzle

By Cassandra Khaw on November 22nd, 2014.

And it’s the end of the week! Oh, thank god, it’s the end of the week. It’s beginning to feel like every Bargain Bucket is preceeded by muttering about long, long days. (Which it is. Good grief. You can thank my slow but inexorable assimilation into the fiction industry for that.) We’re going to try doing that “these are the big outlets having sales” sub-section this week. I will personally boff anyone who protests with a digital pillow. You have been fore-fluffed. As always, enjoy this bucket of deals. (How have YOUR weeks been?)

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Hide and Go Chu!

By Cassandra Khaw on November 15th, 2014.

With the holiday season teetering on the edge of existence, it’s weird to even think about recommending games right now. You should wait. Maybe, not forever. But hanging onto your lusts for a few more weeks is definitely an idea to evaluate. That said, I’m plotting to acquire Pokemon and Persona Q the first opportunity I get so who I am to judge? As always, here’s a fresh chapter of cool deals, collated into one blue bucket of bargains. (P.S: No, I totally did not injure anyone for the keys to Castle Shotgun last week. Spoke creatively to, perhaps, but..)

The RPS Bargain Bucket: November Expenditure

By Cassandra Khaw on November 8th, 2014.

Hello! This has been a rather strange week. It started with being in transit for about 40 odd hours, and ended with a volley of newswriting for RPS. (This may happen again soon. Maybe. We’ll see.) In between, I lost my wallet and started writing about polygamy in the Song Dynasty, and continued my interactive fiction piece for Choice of Games. My brain is sizzling. Slightly. The smoke wisping out of my ears has dulled to threads. While I recuperate from the week, have this bucket of bargains and the tiniest, awesome-st hedgehog this side of the hemisphere. I am taking name suggestions!

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Candy Haze

By Cassandra Khaw on November 1st, 2014.

So, I had my first Halloween experience this week, which is to say, I spent a lot of time meandering after a troop of kids, and hanging out at a friend’s living room with a cauldron full of candy. My teeth ache from excess, but it has been an informative day. Hopefully, your Halloween was equally novel! Or frightful. Or, well, whichever idea you like best. As I am still in transit, there won’t be an exceptional new plushie to feast your eyes on so have a bucket filled with bargains instead.

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Time Slip

By Cassandra Khaw on October 25th, 2014.

Ugh. Do you know what happens when you’re travelling in the United states, trying to adhere to a Malaysian schedule, and occasionally checking in to see what time it is in United Kingdoms? Chaos, that’s what. And being insanely late with the Bargain Bucket, which is embarrassing to no end. (Sorry sorry sorry, overlords and Bucketeers.) Okay, without any FURTHER ado, here’s a list of possible impulse buys for you. (Plushie is from MadKatrina!)

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Cat-llergical Problems

By Cassandra Khaw on October 18th, 2014.

I love cats, but their luxurious coats disagree with my nose. I am writing this from behind a mountain of soggy tissue paper, even as kittens attempt to use my toes as props in play. I should probably run away, but they’re too cute. Help. (On the bright side, this much sneezing has to qualify as a workout, right? Right?) Because I’m currently located in the Pacific North-West and must prepare this earlier than I normally would, there’s a chance that this week’s Bargain Bucket might have more inaccuracies than normal. I hope not. I don’t know. I’m too busy sneezing my lungs out in the service of cute, fuzzy things. Regardless, enjoy today’s collection of discounted video games. (Ah-choo!) Also, this week’s plushie is an old submission from Lemming because I’m too sick and too far away from home to take my own photos.
