Steam lays out some bait. Steam surprised me today with coupons for two titles I've recently viewed. Will I take the bait? My first coupon slashes 80 percent off Montague's Mount which normally sells for $9.99, and currently holds a crappy 39 (out of 100) Metascore. I've been considering purchasing that game just to experience its dark and cloudy atmosphere. My second coupon reduces the normal $16.99 price for Dream (an Early Access title) by 50 percent. Although that game looks promising, I rarely purchase Early Access titles. Both of my coupons are tradable and expires September 1, 2014 at 11:59:00 PM PST. I'm open to trading my Dream coupon for any trading card. Simply add me on Steam and start a trade.

There is no life without Californication. None worth having, anyway. Netflix's API has revealed the first season of Showtime's Californication will be added to their United States streaming service starting September 1, 2014. I couldn't find information regarding seasons two through seven. It has been over three years since Californication was available on Netflix's United States streaming service. In an interesting note, Californication was found to be the most pirated show in Michigan, North Carolina and South Carolina. Who knew those states are highly-interested in learning about drinking and womanizing. Sources: Christopher Hooton. "Most pirated films, TV shows and video games by US state is utterly fascinating."
