Microsoft Studios Weekend at Steam – All Games on Sale

Well check this out, another sale has just started over at Steam and this time it’s games that Microsoft has published. Now, before you go and scoff, there are some worthwhile titles out there. For example, you can now pick up the brand new Rise of Nations Extended Edition for $9.99. You can also grab Age of Empires HD for $4.99. The new Zombie shooter, State of Decay is also $4.99 with the Expansion Packs coming in at $1.74 for Breakdown and $3.74 for Lifeline.

There is also an interesting game called Toy Soldiers which I’ve never seen before. From the trailer, it looks like an interesting spin on a Tower Defense. For $1.99 I can hardly go wrong in getting a copy. I’ve also been curious about Deadlight, a zombie runner that seems to be getting quite a few good reviews. It’s only $2.99, so for the cost of a couple of Coronas I might that add to my cart as well.

Looks like it could all be pretty interesting. To me the big news is Rise of Nations and Age of Empires, but since I already have those, I might have to go for some of these other titles. Looks like a fun weekend coming up.

Zombie Driver HD and all DLC on sale for $3.00 over at Steam

imageHere’s a pretty cool deal for you, the entire Zombie Driver HD bundle for a mere $3.00. Egad man, that’s basically the cost of a bottle of Mountain Dew! You get the HD version of the game with improved graphics and all the DLC for $3. The DLC includes:
Zombie Driver HD Burning Garden of Slaughter
Zombie Driver HD Tropical Race Rage
Zombie Driver HD Apocalypse Pack
Zombie Driver HD Soundtrack
Zombie Driver HD Brutal Car Skins

This is one heck of a deal for a game full of spills, thrills, gore and plenty of laughs. The object is to get behind the wheel of your large automobile and save the citizens of the zombie infested city. In the process you need to smash and destroy the hordes of zombies that roam the streets as well as tackle some seriously mutated creatures that have sprung up. Part driving game and part shooter, it makes for one hell of a good time! I need to get back into this game and complete more of the missions and build up my car into a serious force of destruction. For $3, I doubt you can find better entertainment. Zombie Driver HD is a seriously fun game that is both easy to play, but complex to complete the missions.

The missions are based on completing different objectives within the city such as saving groups of people on different sides of town or destroy a particular creature that has sprung up or even breaking down some defenses. In some cases you will be tasked with a single goal, sometimes you have multiple objectives at the same time. Sometimes is pure carnage and mayhem, sometimes it’s a race against the clock, sometimes it’s an escape from Alcatraz.

It’s good damn fun, the price is right and the weekend is here. Pick up a copy and set the guns ablaze and let the streets flow red!

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium at BitsDuJour

BitsDuJour is having a sale on the Premium Edition of MalwareBytes. This is a pretty awesome program and I have it running on my gaming machine. The definition database is always up to date and it does a great job of blocking sites, both incoming and outgoing.

With all the advertising you see on all the webpages you visit, who knows what’s going on in the background. You can’t be sure of what sort of drive-by nonsense is going on when you’re just looking for a book or movie review or song lyrics. You need more than AV. MalwareBytes is an excellent choice and $14.97 for a yearly subscription is really good. That’s just a touch over a dollar a month. You can afford that.

This is a 12 month subscription, not the lifetime license that BitsDuJour and MalwareBytes have offered in the past, but, those sorts of subscriptions don’t last forever. SuperAntiSpyware, my other spyware choice, offere Lifetime upgrade, but ultimately changed their model. When you see that sort of thing you have to act fast. Eventually, it will get taken away.

Still, this is a good offer and if you don’t already have something in place you need to get on it. I’ve written several stories of people who’ve been plagued by nefarious things making it onto their systems. Don’t be that guy!

Big Sale on 2K Games at Steam

The sales just keep on coming and this time around the 2K Games catalog is up for grabs. You can save up to 75% on their titles such as Civilization V, Bioshock, Borderlands and XCOM. This also includes all the DLC available for each game. I think I’m going to scoop up Bioshock Infinite and the Season Pass. That’s a damn good deal for $10.

The main page only lists a couple of games, in order to get to the other deals like Ace Patrol, Mafia and Duke Nukem you need to click one of the games and click the 2K Games publisher link. You’ll then get a list of everything they offer on Steam. It’s a good time to grab the DLC.

The sale runs until August 24th, so you have some time to scrape together some coins and get some new games.

O&O DiskImage Pro 8.5 on Sale for $14

I got this as an email, O&O DiskImage Pro is on sale for a mere $14. O&O is one of those tools that allows you to backup the files on your machine as well as clone the entire drive. One of the cool features is you can make a backup of a drive and then mount that file like it was drive. Even if the drive is gone you can still work with it like it was installed. I’ve also used DiskImage to clone a drive before I  did a replacement. I upgraded from a small 500GB drive to a massive 3TB system drive and I was able to transfer the entire OS and all my apps without incident. I probably should have just reinstalled, but I figured it would be more fun to risk everything and just clone the whole machine. Funny thing is, it worked no problem.

I’ve also used Acronis True Image and I’m not sure which is better. They both work really well so I would say it’s a matter of getting whichever one is on sale. If you’re looking for some backup and imaging software, O&O DiskImage Pro is a good choice. The sale ends soon so you need to act fast.

If DiskImage isn’t quite your thing, you can use the coupon code – H6D-RHT-INT – to get a 15% discount of whatever you want.

New features of O&O DiskImage 8.5 Pro at a glance:
 
- Easier to use
- Reliable Images
- Backups are created automatically
- Backup files, file types, drives or your entire PC with just the push of a button
- Now supports EFI/UEFI systems as well as BIOS
- Quick backup of e.g. whole music collections with integrated file backup
- Have your old system restored any time you want, including operating system, applications, files and settings
- Integration of ISO files as virtual drives
- Great Price (won the "Good Buy" prize in comparison test from PC Magazine issue 1/2012)
- Create Windows Boot CD directly from within O&O DiskImage
- Compatible with Windows 8.1, 8, 7, Vista and XP
- Compatible with all previous versions of O&O DiskImage
