Gaming News and Notes from 4-13-11

There's a few good deals going on at Steam currently. They are doing 2K sales with Mafia 1 being 75% off on Monday, and the excellent Bioshock games 75% off on Tuesday. They'll be doing the same today and tomorrow.

In addition to that, Steam is offering up a collection of games called The Potato Sack. Not really sure how long it will be up for - it's been about a week and a half now, but there's quite a long list of games for $38.72:

1...2...3 Kick It!
AaAaAaaAa - A reckless disregard for gravity
Amnesia: The Dark Descent (this one has gotten very good reviews and normally lists for $20 alone)
Bit.Trip Beat
Defense Grid: The Awakening
Killing Floor (got a 7.5 on IGN and normally sells for $20)
Super Meat Boy (again, a review sensation that normally goes for $15)
The Ball
The Wonderful End of the World
Toki Tori

I did grab this, maily for the 3 games I made special notes of, but there were others of interest to me as well - but I had been eying all 3 for awhile now, so I decided to pick it up. Slew of reviews, even if smaller ones, forthcoming soon. :)

Speaking of PC game discounts, there was the Humble Bumble releases last year - taking a slew of indie games (including some excellently scored ones like Braid) and packaging them together for a price that you yourself name. The proceeds largely go to charity (or completely - they have cool customization on your purchase package). This one's not nearly as impressive as the one from last winter I missed out on, but you can pick up Trine, Shadowgrounds, Shadowgrounds: survivors, a pre-order for Splot and prototype/dev kit for Jack Claw. Seriously, a buddy picked these up for $1. Of course, the proceeds go to charity, so you probably want to chip in more than that. Seriously, cheap games, good cause, check it out.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D's Release Date Revealed to be Sunday, June 19, 2011 in America.

And this last bit isn't news, it just gave me a grin and should tip you off as to what my weekend reviews will be:
