Amazon Game Round Up

A few readers have emailed me asking why we don’t post weekly sales. Well, see, we do. Brandon’s Calender Man column posted every Monday usually contains weekly deals.

But I realize not everyone wants new stuff and they’d like to know about older games that can be found on the cheap and since we are part of the Amazon referral program…sounds like a win-win to me.

The deals here aren’t all necessarily “sales” (some are) but just some heavily discounted games that we tend to think are still worth the money. Funny how fast the prices drop on videogames.

I want to start off with a PC game on Steam — Tropico 4 is free until Sunday and after that will be slashed 66% to a $13.59 price tag.

Dark Souls. $39. That sort of sells itself.

One of Brandon’s favorites over the past year, Driver: San Francisco is now at $18.90, and even though I didn’t play it Brandon swears it’s great. If not, yell at him.

One of the best games of all time, Batman: Arkham City is now $38. If you didn’t play this — you kind of need to.

I still haven’t played Mass Effect 3 and really don’t feel like playing Mass Effect 3 but everyone else here seemed to like it well enough. It’s down to $43 on the PS3.

Yeah, BioShock: Infinite was delayed. Sucks. But BioShock 2 for $9.69 is pretty awesome.

Finally, Uncharted 3 has dipped to $36 and change. While most were letdown a tad by this third chapter, $36 is a pretty good bargain.

If you stumble upon any crazy good deals let us know. I’ll add them as I see them.

    1. I rebought it at Target about a month ago for the whopping price of $9.98. Tell me again why I paid $60 for it barely six months ago?

      It’s definitely worth picking up. A very different kind of car game with a supernatural twist.

      Extra points for prominently featuring The Dirtbombs’ “Chains of Love” on the soundtrack. Take that, dubstep.

  1. I picked up Arkham City on sale on Steam for $15 last week. I feel like I stole it! I didn’t believe the launch hype, but now I get it. It’s amazing. I should probably buy it on a console so I don’t feel so bad about getting it dirt cheap.

  2. Keep in mind with Arkham City that the price drop is probably due to the GotY edition coming out in a little under 3 weeks. So $12 more for all the DLC. I still haven’t picked it up, but probably will get the GotY since I loved the first one. I’m backlogged like a mother anyways… so by then that edition will probably be 20 bucks.
