Playlist: August 17th

A fairly quiet week for Scanline. No excuses from us- we didn’t write much. We intend to step it up next week. Still getting back into the swing of things after my time off, and Ben- wait! I said no excuses. Gar, I am bad at this. I like excuses. Here’s what we played this …

Buy Stock in StreetPass Rabbit

Well, goddamn. When Nintendo updated the 3DS to add a businessman rabbit that used classic sales tactics to fleece you of your hard-earned dough, I nodded in respect. Don’t pretend that you’re different from used car salesmen, embrace how creepy your hard sell is. A kind of honesty I appreciate. What I did not expect was …

Man, I’m glad to say goodbye to July, aren’t you? I mean, I guess it’s a fine enough month- too hot for my tastes, but otherwise fairly inoffensive- but nothing comes out in July. Nothing! We haven’t had anything exciting to write about released. August looks to be much more interesting. I’m looking forward to it. …

A productive week here at Scanline. I wonder sometimes, what should we call people who work at Scanline Media? Granted, there are only two of us right now, but maybe we’ll get more someday. Scanners? Linemen? Linebackers? Or just Scanlines? I think I like Linemen best. Scanline Media, debating the things that matter. Here’s what …

Ben: As we approach the end of the Steam summer sale, it’s time to examine your potentially long list of purchases and wonder what you were thinking (unless you managed to resist the temptation. If so, congratulations!). I made a few questionable decisions but overall, I’m very satisfied with the moderate additions to my gigantic …

Well, been a bit of a chaotic week. I (Colin) got back from a trip home late on Monday, and scrambled to put a Goddamn Mondays together… and failed. Gar! Well, I’ll have something interesting for tomorrow, at least. Even though I’ve been watching so much EVO that I’ve barely done anything else. PLAYED Surgeon …

Between a rooftop party and several trips to the beach, this week was a great start for July! It’s only going to get crazier once the Steam summer sale begins and two old-school franchises make their triumphant(?) return to the zeitgeist.

Another week, another Playlist. It’s been fairly quiet in terms of game news this week, which to me felt like a blessing. E3 was a crazy, wild ride, and EVO is coming up really fast, so it was nice to just have some time to relax. Here’s what we’ve been playing. PLAYED Layton Brothers: Mystery …

Wow. That Xbox DRM backpedalling, eh? Hell of a thing. It’s pretty inspiring to see how, right when you’re thinking mere opinion can’t change anything, overwhelming public opinion manages to change the plans of a major player like this. Too bad they’ve still got their always online spycam, right? Darn shame. PLAYED Tomb Raider Colin: …
