Tex Murphy on sale again on GoG.com

When I was at PAX a few weeks ago, I mentioned to one of the guys working the GoG booth that I was waiting for Tex Murphy to go on sale again since I missed it the last time (I was aware of the sale, but didn’t go for it).

I’m sure it’s just a co-incidence but today I received word that the Tex Murphy series of games were indeed on sale again until Monday.

In a way the deal is not as good as last time, since you could buy all 4 for $14.36 (instead of $17.96).  The catch was if you didn’t want all 4 the discount dropped to 30%.  This time you get 50% off whether you want 1 game or all 4.

I still have my original copies for UAKM, Pandora and Overseer, but UAKM has one or two bad discs and it would be nice to have digital copies that didn’t require disc swaps.  Also, I suppose it would be in bad taste to not buy them since I asked for the sale, though I’m sure it’s just a co-incidence.  OR IS IT?   😉



PAX Prime 2011 Swag

Epic SEGA Controller Hoodie from PAX 2010

I ended up with around half of the swag as last year.  No epic Hoodies or Rings of Power this time.  If I have some time over the next while I will see if I can post some pictures.

PAX Prime 2011 was a BLAST!!

As you would expect, we had a great time at PAX this year.

I was a little disappointed that some of the bigger companies like Intel and NVidia failed to show up with their own booths, but that’s mostly because they offered some of the best giveaways last year.

There were still a bunch of great game launches and demos including Uncharted 3 and Mass Effect 3 (both games I am very excited to play).

I guess over all it seemed bigger yet smaller at the same time.  Bigger in that a lot of the lines were just crazy.  I ended up playing the Mass Effect 3 demo at the Xbox 360 booth because the Bioware lines were always 2 to 3 hours long.  Smaller because there seemed to be fewer big game launches than last year.

Either way, it was still a blast and I can’t wait until PAX 2012 rolls around.  😀



PAX Prime 2011 – Completely Sold Out!

I guess I missed this last week, but it seems that in six short weeks, the Penny Arcade Expo 2011 has completely sold all of the available single and three day passes.

That’s pretty crazy, I don’t remember them selling that quickly last year.  I would suggest they find a bigger venue, but then I think about how crazy the place would be if it was any bigger.

No, I’m glad they limit the amount of passes they sell.  You know what they say, “you snooze, you loose”.  😀


PAX Prime 2011 – Sold Out of 3 Day Passes

PAX Prime 2011 LogoIf you were hoping to get 3 day passes for this years PAX Prime before they sold out and haven’t gotten around to it yet, well, I’m sorry to say but you are too late.

It was announced on Friday that they have officially sold out and that only single day passes are available.

The single day passes still offer an excellent value and I’m sure the Saturday and Friday passes will sell out soon enough.

If you intend to go this year, I suggest you buy passes before it is too late!!!!
