A Valley Without Wind 2 Presale Deal

Steam now offers presales of A Valley Without Wind 2, the upcoming platformer sequel. Those who purchase the game prior to its release in February will get immediate access to the beta version, and will also receive a free copy of the original A Valley Without Wind. If this all doesn't provide enough incentive, the game is currently on sale for 60% off the regular price.

PC Fuel Overdose in February

German site GBase.ch has word from I-FRIQIYA that February is when to expect the release of the PC edition of Fuel Overdose, the oddly named tactical/action/racing game. They also have word that the game is now available for the PlayStation 3, but that due to some sort of glitch, you have to actively search to find it. They cap the news off with a recently released trailer showing off the game. Continue here to read the full story.

Dead Space 3 Console Demo Next Month

EA announces plans for demo versions of Dead Space 3, the upcoming horror-themed shooter sequel. This will be released on Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network on January 22nd, though Xbox 360 owners have the chance to get to play it a week earlier if they sign up on this page.

NYTimes.com - Game Theory- Making Room for the Women.
Unfortunately this rise in so-called casual play has upset some of those who see themselves as guardians of the true flame. There’s been a definite backlash against the idea that women are entering the hallowed citadel, dropping in a few scatter cushions and ending all the fun. Particular ire is reserved for anyone who dares to point out that female characters in games are often unsupported in the bra region for no apparent reason; given boring, bland supporting roles; and totally absent.

Out of the Blue

Happy Boxing Day, Kwanzaa, Second Day of Christmas, Wren Day, Bulgarian Father's Day, St. Stephen's Day, and more. That's right, today is practically an entre holiday season unto itself. MrsBlue and I had a lovely Christmas, actually venturing out to spend the evening with some friends, who cooked up a lovely dinner. Here's hoping things were equally pleasant for you. That may be tough in some areas of the country, as apparently there are some really severe winter storms out there, so here's also hoping you stay safe. I guess we'll know how bad this is soon enough, because apparently the whole mess is heading our way.
