Humble has a particularly good bundle of InXile RPG and RPG-adjacent video games up. I can personally recommend all but one of them (because there's one I haven't played).
Check it out, unless you positively hate video games.
Keenly selected stuff at very low prices from our Humble Bundle partners.
Attack on Titan e-comics, Paradox video games (incl. Stellaris and Pillars of eternity) and heh some travel guides as long as I was typing this.
As with most years, we were planning to skip one update - the late December one. But I ended up splitting some overlong writeups (and touching them up a bit) so they'd be easier to read. So I guess there's a little something after all.
As always, stay safe during any seasonal celebrations. We wish you a pleasant next 12...
Humble has a neat pack of multi-format Judge Dredd e-comics, with a mix of 2000AD and IDW material. Details inside.
And yes, there's a Judge Anderson book in the pack. Everything is better with Judge Anderson.
The big yearly Yogscast Jingle Jam event has just started. It's a festive thing with prizes to win and lots of YouTube #content to encourage people to give to charities. We're sort of part of it, in an extremely peripheral fashion.
The newest Humble Bundle... well, bundle... has Grim Fandango Remastered in the pay-what-you-want tier, and there's a *reason* why writeups.org has such solid coverage of the characters.
There's also other good stuff, including more remastered LucasArts classics (including Full Throttle.)
A lot of the video games we have character profiles for are currently on sale on the Humble Store. So if you were interested in some of the video game universes and characters we covered, check this list out.
We’d like to point you toward a humble bundle starring the Rise of the Tomb Raider video game. Since we’ve fairly proud of our character profile for the 2013-rebooted version of Lara Croft.
It's $12 and comes with a basket of mystery games.
The updates for the second third of January are heavy on the older Fallout isometric video games. Usually, we avoid "themed" batches of new content, under the notion that it's bad for those readers who do not happen to like that theme. But here, it was logistically soooo much simpler.
Therefore - 1997/1998 Fallout material aplenty.
