I'm looking out my window and see snow. Lots of it. At this point, summer seems a million years away and I have no desire to go out in the cold to make a snow angel or do whatever it is people do in freezing weather these days. So I'll sit inside and catch up on some gaming, especially if the deals keep rolling in. Last week is an awesome collection of Star Wars titles that Humble Bundle was serving up, and now they've put together a tantalizing Square Enix bundle!

Another day, another beautiful game trailer. This one is from Square Enix’ new Thief reboot, and the trailer is called “Out of the Shadows”. It’s brief but to the point, showing off some brilliant artwork in a special scripted scene while unfortunately keeping any real gameplay out of it. However, like any good trailer, it makes you want to pick up a controller and dig in for a long gaming session.
