Happy New Year, Update and New Reviews

Happy New Year! 2013, and all of us Mayan apocalypse survivors, does life get any better? I hope everyone had fun, partied and consumed a moderate amount of alcohol. A new year mean new games and technology, which means more things to blog about, so keep tuned in via twitter, facebook or subscribe through blogger.

Since mid December, a number of sites around the internet have been featuring sales. Steam, GoG and Greenman Gaming are a few online retailers featuring discounts on digital downloads and publisher bundles. This year, during the Steam Summer Sales, I'll try to post a day-to-day blog entry and give a mini-review and rating on the best deals. Readers may also comment below the entry if they have an alternate opinion or mini-review..

Speaking of Steam, the current sale is remarkably conservative compared to last year's, and I hope Steam returns to a more adventurous and fun Winter Sale in 2013. In contrast to Steam, GoG has been having a blinding sale season with great deals and genuine festivity. Did everyone get their free copy of Duke3D:Atomic Edition? Thank you, GoG.

Finally, a small list of upcoming gaming and tech releases in 2013:
  • Steam Box, Valve's console offering. Looking to capitalize in an uncertain market, the Steam Box is slated for a Q1 2013 release.
  • Bioshock Infinite - to boob, or not to boob: that is the question. Will it live up to its "shock" series predecessors?
  • A series of Kickstarters should come to fruition, including Anita Sarkessian's Tropes series.
  • Company of Heroes 2, Aliens: Colonial Marine and much more.

Cheers to you and goodbye, 2012.
