The RPS Bargain Bucket: What the floof?

We helped put together a bundle of our own this week, which feels slightly bizarre because we're usually writing about bundles. (At least, I am.) Bargains continue to rain across the internet however, so get out your wallets and start your weekend with a well-considered purchase. (Also, this week's fluffy chimera is from Jim Huxter.)

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Death by Fluff

It's my birthday tomorrow, and I can write about the most incredibly fluffy present I've ever received in my life if I want to, damn it. A close friend and ex-colleague mailed me this a few weeks ago and allowed me to open it pre-emptively, to make up for a dreadful week. This is what I found. If it was any fluffier, I'd weaponize that…

Feature: Turbulent Mess

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Black Saturday

Here, in Malaysia, Hungry Ghost Festival is slowly creeping towards the end and soon, it will once again be safe to gallivant through dark alleys. Or something. (You shouldn't visit dark alleys anywhere, folks. It is a Bad Idea.) This week has been a turbulent mess, for more than one reason, and I apologize for the lack of caffeine-driven cheer. It rather doesn't help that…

Feature: Do not cuddle

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Arachnophobia

Guys, I have a confession. I spent so much of last week being excited about creating silly YouTube videos (which you can watch here, if you missed it the first time) that I completely forgot to tell you this: someone is making a Horace plushie. Not because we asked her to. Not because it was sanctioned by the editorial overlords. But, because that person is…

Feature: incredible revelation

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Insert Pun

I actually watched movies recently. Including The Lego Movie, which I had somehow missed for months. My god, why didn't anyone tell me that a film could cause such a pure, electronic sense of joy? I am giddy with love. Especially for Unikitty, who should bleed rainbow sparkles. In commemoration of this incredible revelation, I'm including this absurd short video entitled 'The Pasta Don' at…

Feature: a rowdy montage

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Shell Power

Have you watched Guardians of the Galaxy? I have not but that is on the plate this weekend. And from what I hear, it's like the chilli cheese fries of comic book-inspired movies, a rowdy montage of action scenes and - dear god, I hope we don't drown under the video game spin-offs. You know they're coming. Flee. Flee under your buckets and take shelter…

Feature: inexorably tied

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Cat Dog World

It's Comic-Con International 2014, and you know what that means. It's time for grand announcements about new intellectual properties, gossip about beloved cult TV series, and a truckload of thematically appropriate bargains. (And anecdotes about questionable behaviour, but those appear to be inexorably tied to the convention experience. Sigh.)

The RPS Bargain Bucket: International Tiger

There's a certain poetry to the recent schedule of sporting events. First, we had the World Cup, which was rather widely celebrated (and criticized.) Now, we have the International, which is somewhat less maligned but just as adored. I'm of the opinion that the Olympics will probably never open a sub-section for esports, but it's rather exciting to see video game competitions turning into a…

Feature: vulgar displays of magic

The RPS Bargain Bucket: So Peculiar

Steam is having their annual summer sales, which means a conglomeration of flash deals and bargains that will no longer exist by the time you read this. Grumble grumble. Similarly, we have GOG.com reducing prices like crazy and ShinyLoot, BundleStars, and a cast of smaller names filling out whatever space is left. In light of that, Bargain Bucket will only be tangentially focused on games…

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Like Penguins

There's really not much to say about this week except, "You know Steam is having a sale, right?" But not just them. Everyone seems to be joining into the fun. The real question is, of course, how many of these games will actually be played once the discount frenzy has ended. One? Two? How many will be relegated to the digital depths of game libraries…

Feature: King of the bucket

The RPS Bargain Bucket: In the Jungle

There are a lot of fun, fun things happening over at GOG.com right now, including collections and great titles made stupidly cheap. As of the time of writing, I see a Blackwell Bundle that is 80% off, a mammoth conglomeration of D&D games going for pennies, and friggin' Incredipede with a 85% discount. Sadly, by the time you read this, they'll likely no longer be…

Feature: Scratches catalyzed

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Wallet Bursters

Aaaaah? AAAAAAH. In case anyone was wondering, Tiguh X's plush Xenomorph actually elicited a bit of a yelp when I first saw it. ANYWAY. Now, ordinarily, I like kicking off Bargain Bucket with something completely unrelated to the column but I'm going to take the opportunity here to point out that Green Man Gaming has gone bonkers with the whole sales thing of late. It's…

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Cats in Planes

This week has been a bit of a blur for me albeit in an awesome way. It's not every day you're startled into remembering that a beloved book series is being adapted for the television. (The Strain is squee, guys. Squee.) I can't abide by the kind of vampires that have slowly crept into media these days. Flashy, sparkly things built for lust rather than…

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Suave People

Who knew cosplay events could be so packed? I spent the earlier part of today cautiously inching through a local mall in search of candid moments. Unfortunately, I didn't come home with too many photos. I was shy, and everyone else had a better assortment of camera equipment. Also, the shoving. Oh, the shoving. On the bright side, I managed to come home in one…

Feature: Eat My Soul

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Mountain High

Lightroom is going to eat my soul. Lightroom has already eaten my soul. After weeks of debate, I finally capitulated and resigned myself to purchasing the software. Then, it devoured my Saturday. All of it. Each and every moment not otherwise spent dealing with human ablutions and food. I am ashamed, but also hopelessly smitten with the software. (Do you have any useful obsessions, Bucketeers?)…

The RPS Bargain Bucket: A Bucket of Joy

So, I found out the other week that burgers aren't so much fast food as they are culinary adventures in Britain. Bone marrow, brisket, and fine-cooked beef served in outlets that utilize bodyguards and queues. Is this true, British people? (Tell me about your favorite place to eat. You don't have to be British.) If so, I need to move. This week's Bargain Bucket isn't…

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Scary Fuzz

Ever had one of those weeks where you feel like you were gobbled up, chewed on and spat back out? Yeah, it was one of those weeks for me. I'm not even really sure why. It could well be the inexorable build up to this year's summer blockbusters and the endless nights of writing that will no doubt follow. On another note, bargain hunters should…

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Fluffy Showdown

If it wasn't obvious already, I have a camera. An actual camera. Not a dinky, built-into-my-phone camera but an actual camera. Obviously, plushie-related images are now going to appear in abundance. (Bargain Bucket regulars may recognize the floppy white figure in the foreground; it's the first plushie we ever featured on this column.) As always, it's that time of the week again and it looks…
