Bargain Thread 2019

Love taking money from Bezos’ pocket. God knows I’ve put enough in there over the years.

Yeah, you’re right on that score. Is Gears 4 pretty good? I played the first one through on the 360 back when. I’d play it on the PC now… someday.

Given that, I should probably skip it.

LOL! This deal got even better for me since Amazon applied the $5 credit I got for buying a GC on Prime Day, making gears a little over $5 after tax. That $5 credit was going to expire in September, so now I get it replaced with a $15 credit that’s good through December 31st.

Thanks Bezos! (and @wilykat for posting it!)

Beats me, I have no plans to install it, I just wanted Bezos’ five buckaroos.

I don’t know if they sold out of copies or realized their mistake but I GoW is still in the top banner but it is no longer available to buy on that page.

Oh weird, I must’ve just sneaked in before the change. Ridiculous deal on TLOU, easily one of the best PS3/PS4 games ever made.

Yep, everything is over fifteen bucks now. Gotta move fast!

I’ve thought about getting that, since it’s a PS exclusive and so well regarded, but it also sounds like it’s quite the emotional gut punch from what a friend at work tells me about it.

That’s part of what makes it so good, but well worth the journey.

Dammit!

Shit!

Nice. Only two games showed up for me, but I grabbed TLOU for $17. I had some miscellaneous credits lying around that made it $15, then chose a delayed shipping option for another $1 back. Altogether with tax it should be a wash. So free game, yippee!

Grey Goo Definitive edition is $1 over at Fanatical (Steam key).

That’s the RTS that came out, I think Tom (2 Stars) and others gave it a negative review at the time so I never really gave it any mind space again. Worth checking out for $1 anyone?

It’s a basic and fairly dull RTS, but you could do a hell of a lot worse for $1, and the soundtrack alone is worth that price as far as I’m concerned (which conveniently comes with the Definitive Edition). I don’t think any of the work Petroglyph did on it post-release would have been enough to change anyone’s overall impression of the game, though.

Fanatical has the PayDay 2 Ultimate Bundle live for $4.49. Ultimate Bundle comes with PayDay 2 and 36 DLC, so the DLC alone could make it worth picking up for folks who already own the base game.

Fanatical also has Yakuza Zero for a historic low $9.39. They also offer the Yakuza Pack for $21.99 which contains both Yakuza Zero and Yakuza Kiwami (a remastered version of the original Yakuza), but you’re only saving a couple of bucks off the combined price with the current Yakuza 0 special.

Buy one of these games from Amazon for $15, and get a $15 credit a week later. Currently available are Fallout 76 PS4, TLoU Remastered PS4, and The Sims 4 PC. Must be an Amazon and Twitch prime member.

Note it must be sold by amazon, not a third-party fulfilled by amazon. F76 might be out of stock right now. But you shouldn’t buy that piece of garbage anyway, even for free.

I picked up TLoU for the hell of it. I don’t even own a PS4.

Hey all, the Dishonored 2 “expandalone” Death of the Outsider is at a historic low of $5.99 on Steam and Humble, and even a bit less there if you’re a Monthly subscriber.

EDIT: I swear to God, if the Google keyboard “corrects” “if” to “of” ONE MORE TIME I can’t be held responsible for my actions.

PSN has a sale on. Lots of big stuff on sale.

Look only at my personal wishlist, these four games are on sale:

Tetris Effect $25
Shadow of the Colossus $13
The Last of Us Remastered $15
Rez Infinite $15

(What is Rez Infinite? It’s like Rez HD on the 360, but has VR support I believe, and has one extra song that wasn’t in the Dreamcast and 360 versions. So, I do want to play it for that song. And as an excuse to play through Rez HD for a fifth time, of course).

yes, everyone buy Death if the Outsider!

It could be worse. Imagine of it was the other way around?
