[insert snappily written intro here]

  • Analogue: A Hate Story was something of a surprise hit when it came out, following on from Digital: A Love Story. Now there’s going to be a third entry in the series, Hate Plus: ~Mute’s Golden Days~. Developer Christine Love is working on the new game and expects it to be released sometime during winter.
  • In an interview with Polygon’s Brian Crescente, Markus Persson, aka Notch, has revealed that his next game, the enigmatic 0x10c, has been put on ice due to a creative block. Notch says that the game feels like it could be fun, but there’s something more that needs to be added to get it there.
  • Papo & Yo is coming to Steam. The game, which debuted on the PS3 last year, tells the story of a boy and his monster, and is notable for the subtext of an abusive parent-child relationship, something its developer, Vander Cabellero, experienced first-hand. The game is noted as being quite touching and powerful, and should be on the wishlist of any PC gamer.
  • Baldur’s Gate. Baldur’s Gate 2. Icewind Dale. Icewind Dale 2. Temple of Elemental Evil. Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone. Dungeons and Dragons: Dragonshard. Neverwinter Nights. Neverwinter Nights 2. Planescape: Torment. If these names mean anything to you, and you don’t already own them, then you can buy the lot of them for just over $20 on right now. Even if you don’t know what I’m talking about, or you just want to own some of the finest PC RPGs ever made, then head over and pick these titles up.
