The RPS Bargain Bucket: Bytes Of A Feather

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: Weekend of Evil

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: Bucking the Trend

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

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!

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

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!
