You missed it. It was $10 at Best Buy with an online coupon a few months ago.

Hitman Trilogy HD



This comes out January 29th for 360 and PS3 for $39.99. Includes Hitman Contracts, Hitman 2 Silent Assassin, and Hitman Blood Money
Awesome. I'm working through the new Hitman right now and it's just plain fun.

Damn it. Amazon is offering $20 credit with Kinect purchase. I bought one back in mid October as a Christmas gift for my son. I knew I should've waited. Oh well.

Basically, you'll get an Steam key.
I downloaded the file (metro2033.exe) on my laptop and wrote down the key, but I'm not going to play the game until I build a new PC during the Holidays. And this might sound like a stupid question, but since I have a PS3 and don't play PC games, what does "redeem key in steam" mean? Do I need to go to some Turkish bathhouse?

www.steampowered.com


Though to be honest with you, if you don't know what Steam is by now, there's probably very little chance your PC can run Metro 2033.

"but I'm not going to play the game until I build a new PC during the Holidays."

Thanks, I'll register on Steam once I finish the pc build.

Ah, missed that.

You can certainly register the game now. It'll tie the game to your Steam account and you can play your games on as many of your computers as you like. It's really a great service.

Sonic Ultimate Genesis Collection for 360 is $9.99 over at Amazon. Great price if you never got around to picking it up (like me)

I can't recommend that title enough. Fantastic games, so much to play with and even though I would consider it an easy to average 1,000 achievement points, it actually makes you feel like you accomplished something when it happens. $10 is great. (I bought it at $20 and feel like I got way more than my money's worth)

Halo Wars - Platinum Edition and Dark Souls are $12.99 at Best Buy today. I really liked Halo Wars and am thinking of grabbing the Platinum version just for the $20 in DLC it includes...

Agreed. That price is amazing for that compilation.

Don't know if that was a glitch or if the sale is already over, but both of those show $19.99

Dead Space 2 is showing $12.99 and if you are looking for Dark Souls, Amazon still has it for $12.99

I don't do any research on PC games anymore but I still partake when deals arise. Do any of these bundles stand out as a necessary acquisition?

Just stopped by Target. Lots of great deals there.

Transformers : Fall of Cybertron is half off at $29.99. Picked that one up.

It depends a lot on what you're interested in, and if you're looking for PC exclusives.

The Telltale games are very well reviewed adventure games, and they're 80% off individually, so you don't have to buy the bundle to get the full discount.

Witcher 2 is highly rated as well.

ArmA 2: Combine Operations is notable for being the base for the popular free mod DayZ. The devleoper of DayZ is working on a standalone version, so I'm not sure what this means to the future of the mod.


Personally, I'm eyeing the Sierra Bundle since I played a lot of those as a kid and wouldn't mind having them again to play.

Not really a Video Game deal, but sign up for Shop Runner at www.shoprunner.com and enter the promo code RUNNER to get a free year of their service which includes free two day shipping on most (but not all) items from New Egg, Toys R Us and many other stores (and free delivery from Domino's) .
