The RPS Bargain Bucket: Flu Faced

I’m pretty sure back-to-back conventions were the Grim Reaper’s finest invention. I feel like death. I feel like death gently warmed over, to be fair, rather than death squirming with maggots. So it could be worse. But it isn’t an amazing day. (P.S: Sorry for this being an out-of-season Bargain Bucket. I was squished by meetings last night. Boo.) While I endeavor to make myself into a coherent human being again, enjoy this bucket of bargains. This very strange plushie is from Ross. (And apologies for a very short Bargain Bucket. I’m wilting from bacteria.)

The RPS Bargain: S Dot T Dot A Dot And So On

The best game deals can be hard to find on your own, popping up as they do on obscure sites and often vanishing hours later. That’s what the Bargain Bucket is for – to round up the week’s sales in case your short on money and high on desire to play something new.

This week’s plushie diaroma is from Welverin. Well, damn.

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Sunlight Sweet

Hello from surprisingly sunny London, which is looking absolutely lovely today, except for the fact I’m limping everywhere post-sparring session last night. But I’m hoping to visit Brixton Market today, regardless. If you have recommendations on what is good, or what should be avoided with extreme prejudice, I’d be totally happy to hear. This week’s plushie comes from rgk! As always, send me more, if you have any lying about!

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Team Discount

Happy Independence Day, American people! And Good Not-Melting-In-The-Summer-Heat to the European folk trapped without air-conditioning in their lives. As a card-carrying Malaysian, let me just say that it baffles me to imagine countries where freon-fueled cold air does not exist. (Not really, but I just like saying things, sometimes.) This week’s shockingly inventive Guest Plushie comes from Welverin, who captioned their entry with, “Who to equip?” Love it.

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Cubic Curiosity

Nothing says “weekend” like an afternoon spent watching a Malcolm in the Middle rerun marathon. It’s genuinely better than I remembered, but that may hold true for anything that has been viewed in order. Between you and me, though, the sitcom is best viewed as a preview to Breaking Bad. So many gas masks. So much angst. So many narrative possibilities. Anyway, pickings remain slim this week outside of Steam’s colossal selection, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing, yea?

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Summer Serenade

It is the Steam summer sales! Honestly, why are you even reading this? It’s an explosion of discounts over there. If it’s not on offer, it will probably soon be. But just in case you were bored, or just in the mood to do some window shopping, we’ve got some bargains in the bucket for you. (You can thank welverin for this week’s bucket plushie!)

The RPS Bargain Bucket: That New Car Smell

STITCH GOOD

My gloves smell like new car. I finally caved in and purchased myself a set of boxing gloves after weeks of dealing with someone else’s old sweat. If my hands have to become habitats for grotesque amounts of bacteria, the least I can do is ensure they’re my bacteria. Or something. Ew. Anyway, moving on, here’s this weeks bucket of bargains! (P.S: I can’t, for the life of me, remember who sent me this picture. Claim your plushie in the comments, please!)

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Basket of Fluff

OMG SO MANY

I really should be inserting something clever here, but all I can think about is how adorable that bucket of plushies is. There’s something mildly disconcerting about the setup, to be fair. Why do they resemble severed heads? Is that ice in the bucket? Are they being kept alive through supernatural means? Unnatural methods? Who knows. Questioning minds need answers to this cute yet uncannily strange bouquet. Only rgk has the answer. In the meantime, enjoy the bargains.

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Bundles of Happiness

Buckets of fun.

‘Tis the season for game bundling, money-money-money. We’ve got good games a-plenty, ka-ka-ka-ka-ching-ka-ching. *ahem* With both the United Kingdoms and the United States celebrating various holidays on Monday, it seems like an excellent time to put diversions within easy reach. The Bargain Bucket usually squints appraisingly at individual deals, but it feels like a time to poke at the bigger, badder things on the discount market right now. (Enjoy dosbox’s plushie! And send me new ones!)

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Perfect Pain

Exercise is hard. Throughout my life, I’ve suffered a hate-loathe affair with physical exertion, which is especially problematic because I try to do a lot of it. (My most recent obsession is muay thai. My shins regret this obsession.) But the thing I don’t get is how some people latch onto the punishment. My training partner routinely coos about the glory of exhausted muscles. This does not compute. While I endeavour to understand why some people love being so tired you could barf, have a bunch of bargains in a bucket. (This week’s plushie is a repeat because I’m desperately trying to prepare for classes after this. But new plushie photos are always, always welcomed.)

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Good Old Days

Man. Oh, man. There’s nothing quite like the early days of the video game industry, is there? When polygons were visibly polygonal and colors were an experience. Jokes aside, GOG.com, ignoring the rash of recent controversies, is doing a killer sale right now. It’s not exactly the most ground-breaking sale, but it does have so many wonderful, wonderful memories going for cheap. This week’s plushie comes again from rgk, who possesses quite the admirable collection.

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Bad Poetry Alert

There was once a plushie from Nantucket, who got sent to the Internet in a bucket. He pretended to be lifeless, like a courtier touched by King Midas. Because otherwise, he’d scare the stuffings out of – oh, nevermind. Welcome to your umpteenth installment of Bargain Bucket, where the points don’t matter and flash deals make me want to loom menacingly over the people who invented them. This week’s plushie is from Grizzly, who has delivered what appears to be a mama grizzly and her cub in a rather artistc setting.
