Summer is when you want to get outside and hit the beach, soak up some rays, maybe go swimming and enjoy yourself. But Sony wants to make sure that you still play some videogames, and have announced their Summer Blast 2013 sale, which kicks off today, July 2. And even in the first week of the month, there’s a few really good deals:

GAME TITLE                               REGULAR PRICE     SALE PRICE    PS PLUS PRICE
Call of Duty: Black Ops II          $59.99                         $41.99                $37.79
The Amazing Spider-Man         $49.99                         $29.99                $20.99
Batman: Arkham Asylum          $19.99                         $9.99                   $5.00

Ratchet & Clank Collection         $29.99                       $14.99                 $7.50

If you haven’t already played it, Arkham Asylum for $5 or $10 is a steal. And I’m personally thinking that I might finally see what all the fuss is about and pick up Shadow of the Colussus myself… You know, to play on a rainy day!

Pride month has officially come to an end, and what a month it was. From Pride celebrations all around the world to the downfall of DOMA and Prop 8 in the United States, it was quite the exciting month to be gay. For gay gamers the month was doubly exciting with all of the exciting news E3 had to offer. And while most game companies have been cooling their heels since the big conference, some made sure to take time to show support for their gay fans.

This week’s vidcast isn’t so much about videogames because it was Gay Pride weekend, so I was pretty busy with all that. And not even partying it up and getting drunk in some bar with my friends, either! I had a LGBT Mud Run to do on Saturday and the NYC Gay Pride March to walk in on Sunday, so that was more than enough for this tired old man! That’s not to say that there’s no videogame talk at all in this episode… I do get in a little Project X Zone at the very end! Make the jump and enjoy!

As gamers will recall, the Metal Gear Solid series is no stranger to the concept of re-releases.  Its first three incarnations featured either supplemental content – VR Missions, Substance, and Subsistence, respectively – while the Gamecube got a full-on remake, in the form of Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes for the Gamecube.  Now, it seems that Hideo Kojima is interested in re-revisiting the original Metal Gear Solid.

Dear Diary,

The randomness of life in Geneva is starting to annoy me. I haven’t seen Redd in like, a couple weeks it seems, so I’ve added no new art to the museum. And people keep asking for the weirdest public work projects. Although I have to say I got the best letter from my boyfriend, Bam:

How’s it going, bro? Your letter rocked! I’m using it to fuel my third workout. I’m gonna try running so fast that I go back in time. I’ll tell you if it works 10 days ago. Remind me to flex for you! Stay fierce! – Bam

Stay fierce. LOVE IT!

The rest of my week is after the jump!

Pandora Boxx IS Alice!

Spicy Horse Games the team behind Akaneiro: Demon Hunters and American McGee’s Grim has selected drag queen, comedian and RuPaul’s Drag Race fan favorite Pandora Boxx as the winner of their Alice costume contest!

“I’m a huge fan of anything Alice in Wonderland,” said Pandora, “And when I first discovered American McGee’s Alice, I was enthralled.  I loved his re-imagining of that world.  Then with Alice: Madness Returns I fell more in love with the twisted Wonderland that American has created.  Part of the appeal of being a drag queen is being able to create anything you want for your shows, so I had the Alice costume made by Dallas Coulter Designs and brought her to life on stage.  When I heard of the contest, how could I not enter?  Especially since I had an amazing homage photo shoot by Jose A Guzman Colon to enter with! I am over the moon that I won the contest!  It’s a thrill and a great honor to be chosen by American to represent his vision.”

“The first time I saw Pandora’s picture, I was struck by the mad intensity in her eyes,” said American McGee, CEO of Spicy Horse Games. “We asked her (along with a handful of other contestants) to submit a video audition and read some lines I’d written. Her performance brought to mind darkly dramatic scenes from some of the best Disney animated classics. I immediately wrote the team and said ‘THIS IS GOLD’. Everyone agreed.”

As the winner of the World’s Best Alice Cosplayer Contest, Pandora flew to Shanghai to meet the Spicy Horse team and appear in a Kickstarter video for OZombie this summer. But looking at the picture below, I think she should just be cast in an Alice movie! I’d definitely buy a ticket for that!

This week’s SingStore Update has some more mainstream material alongside the usual Europop that you might not be as familiar with. And they’ve released the absolute perfect song for gay pride week! Here’s what you can download for SingStar now:

“Twilight” by Cover Drive
“Time After Time” by Cyndi Lauper
“I’m Coming Out” by Diana Ross
“Bandiera Bianca” by Franco Battiato
“Trouble Town” by Jake Bugg
“Bette Davis Eyes” by Kim Carnes
“Dance With Me Tonight” by Olly Murs
“1, 2, 3, 4″ by Plain White T’s

I love “Bette Davis Eyes,” but I’ve already got it for Lips, so I’m not double dipping on that. But “Time After Time” is lovely and I’m totally picking that one up. And this pride weekend, I can guarantee you that I will be singing the hell out of that Diana Ross track!
