Best Buy is having a summer gaming blowout.

About 100 titles, priced $14.99 or less. Mostly decent ones too.

Anybody with Steam want a copy of Puzzle Agent? I bought the newest Indie bundle and have a second copy if anyone wants it.

Stumbled upon this little gem for finding rock bottom game prices (I realize that sounded like a paid endorsement. It's not):

Okay, if you're in the (free) Best Buy Gamer's Club, here's a heads up.

At some point fairly soon, you'll be able to log into your account at myrewardzone.com and grab a coupon for $35 off Skyward Sword.  It's on the Best Buy webpage right now over here but it hasn't quite propagated to your Gamer's Club account yet.

So, yeah, give BB a little personal info and get Skyward Sword for $15.

Ooh, taking advantage of that one. Luckily, it's good until 8\18, since we're broke until Wed.

I find amazon.com has the best prices for games, even better if you don't mind used games. For example, I got Red Dead Redemption for $5 and Dead Island for $10

Battlefield 3
Battlefield 2142 Deluxe
Battlefield 2: Bad Company 2 Vietnam
Battlefield Bad Company 2 Digital Deluxe
Battlefield Bad Company 2
Battlefield 2 Complete

PC download only. That's a rather good price for BF3.

Newest Humble Bundle is out. I'm not really that interested in this one, though.

Indieroyale bundle time!

http://www.indieroyale.com

This one gets you:

Hector: Badge of Carnage
Chime
The Adventures of Shuggy
Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble! (With bonus game: The Witch's Yarn)
The Network

I can't speak for The Network or Shuggy, but Hector: Badge of Carnage is an awesome point-and-click adventure with beautiful graphics (If you can get past a very crude sense of humor). Chime is a pretty neat puzzler that's hard to explain but easy to learn. And I love Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble! It's a kind of RPG/Board game with quests set in a High School in the '20s. Worth the price of admission on its own.


Also, if you're still holding out on picking up any game in the Total War series, you can buy EVERY game in the Total War Series on Steam this weekend for a mere $31.98. The individual entries are all about $5 each too (Except Shogun and Fall of the Samurai which are both $22.).

Okay, this may be the goofiest bargain that I've ever posted.

Are you an American? Are you on X-Box Live? Are you a Halo fan? Well, I have a deal for you!

Watch 3 of the 4 debates (President and Vice President) on X-Box Live and get a special Presidential Halo Avatar outfit!



It's all nice and goldy!  And you may have to sign up for XBox Live rewards too. But there you go. A gold outfit for having politicians yammer at you for 4 and a half hours even though your vote's not going to be changing. Enjoy!

Want a Wii? Well, Nintendo is dropping their price on them in a prelude for the holiday season/ Wii U release on Oct 28th.  It'll be $129.99 in the states. (Other nations will need to consult their local gaming press for their prices.)
