Rest In Peace Sweet Prince (2016-2020)

Hey there! Welcome to the Mostly Kobolds Archive. If you're here for Dic Geeks or our older shows, they're sitting just underneath this post on the front page! If you're wondering why you're here, then read on!

Between 1971 and 2008, Dic Entertainment was a staple of Saturday Morning Cartoon blocks, producing over 100 made-for-TV cartoons and movies; For some reason, we decided to watch as many of them as we possible could. Join Mark & Avery as they voyage endlessly through time to watch every single show that Dic released!

Our current show, slowly coming out of a year long hiatus after a series of unrelated but equally not great life events. Who knew that your wisdom teeth were the load-bearing walls of your life?

Hello there! If you're here, you're likely after the older podcasts we did before starting Dic Geeks. Very well, herein lies a lovely list of links for your delectation. Be warned that, in Avery's opinion, none of these are particularly very good. They're very rough around the edges, they're not entirely too engaging...and Avery changes name at least 2 or 3 times throughout the course of them. Regardless, scroll onwards.

We've been as busy as ever at Mostly Kobolds HQ. And by 'busy as ever' we mostly mean sitting around playing games and watching things on internet streaming sites. Here's a quick look at what we've been up to over the last week or so.

Blimey, has it already been a year? It feels like just a few weeks since we handed out completely unnecessary awards to the games we played in 2016 and here we are once again. Tell you what, this time instead of just talking about games, we talk about games, movies and TV what with them being the things what we talk about on this here website from time to time. So it is with great pride and aplomb that we present to you the Mostly Kobold Awards 2017.

I decided that after two weeks of utter dreck, I should treat myself to something nice. For a breath of fresh air I would buy and review the $1 tier of a Humble Bundle, thus guaranteeing a level of quality that the last two bundles could never offer me. And then Humble's Black Friday sale happened, and they stopped releasing any new bundles to focus upon their Store. Sigh.

Well, lucky for me then that IndieGala, one of the oldest bundle sites, decided to offer up their Black Friday Special Bundle with a $1 tier offering three games. IndieGala used to be pretty good back in the day, so surely a three game bundle from them would be something worth looking at? Surely. Maybe? Hopefully?

So here we are again already. I'm starting to regret thinking this would be a good idea for a weekly article. Anyway, before we begin, since I last wrote this column there have been three new bundles at the £1/$1/€1 price point and I'd just like to quickly highlight just how bad one of them is. The 19th Go Go Bundle Limited bundle has, alongside the usual tripe, a single-screen tank 'game' that exists purely to give players a white supremacist achievement to display on their profile page. As you can imagine, I decided against giving any money to Go Go Bundle this time around.

This week I'm Looking at the Go Go Bundle Limited #18, which released on 11th November and will be available for over a month. It's a monster of a bundle containing 9 games from a variety of genres, all of which have Steam keys (remember when bundles didn't necessarily have Steam keys? Heck; remember Desura?). Fascinatingly, the Go Go bundle lets buyers buy an unlimited number of keys, with massive discounts for those buying larger quantities of the bundle. Why exactly anyone would need to buy this specific mass of games at wholesale prices I'm not 100% sure, but there's definitely potential for mischief regarding trading card farming or dodgy third party key re-seller sites. But for the average user who's only buying one key, this bundle comes in at a cheap and cheerful 99 cents, payable by PayPal only.

Well, at the very least it's cheap. Lets take a look at just how much bang you get for your buck.
