But it went up in price and back down. It seems like 60% off would have brought it to the 51.99 price point but they took 60% off of that instead. But since it's back I guess they'll just roll with it.

The smaller RE pack with only three games is like 30 bucks.

It's a great deal, but I have most of the latter ones digitally I believe and original remastered. Don't think I'm interested in 0 or Revelations...

And the RE bundle deal is dead again. What in the world are they doing?

On the PSN side of things, apparently in EU, final fantasy XV was 80% off, and they just fixed it to 40% off.

As did I, before the deal disappeared again.

For those who want to legally own a few dozen Megadrive/Genesis games on PC for $16...

I count 59 titles. So about $0.26 each.

Note that these Steam titles are part of MegaDrive/Genesis Hub that allows you to download ROM hacks via Steam Workshop for these titles:

I might just bite on that just for Eternal Champions!

Yeah, it's weird. They're also advertising an EA add-on 50% off sale in which all the items are 10% off, and that's WITH EA Access.

I keep thinking about that Resident Evil deal every time it pops up because it's so damn cheap, but I'm not that into zombie shooters.

So are deals for the Nintendo eshop posted here or in a Nintendo thread, i.e. $20 card for $15, etc? Thanks! (don't have one, looking for them )

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

Any recommendations on the Xbox Spring Sale, in terms of content and pricing?

I really prefer to buy discs but as I think through it, resale value is generally almost nothing unless you try to resell really quickly, and I did just add an additional 2TB HDD. It is convenient being able to browse "Apps and Games" and choose from a bunch of stuff.

I'm considering:
- Catherine
- Jackbox 3
- Diablo III complete
- Fallout 4 season pass (I don't really care about the crafting stuff, but the bundle is about the same cost as Fah Hahbor and Nuka World separately)
- Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor
- maybe Dead Rising bundle

Catherine and Diablo III are great games/prices, Life is Strange, Arkham Knight Premium, and Witcher 2 are too if you don't have them.

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

I ended up getting the Artifex Bundle for X1, Blue Dragon for 360 and then bought Diablo III for X1 at Gamestop which was $19.99 which is pretty close to the same as the Spring Sale. I like having physical on rpgs anyway. I thought about Oceanhorn for X1 too, but something keeps telling me to wait for a bigger discount.

I got a ton of play out of Mordor and its bonus content.

Cool, thanks for the input. I think I'm going to go with Catherine, Mordor, D3, Fallout. I've already got Life is Strange (need to finish it), and didn't like The Witcher or the Arkham games.

I played an hour of Catherine and was done with it. I wanted to play through for the story, but some of those puzzles were a pain in the ass.

Tempted by Blue Dragon, but I already have backward compatible Lost Odyssey that I'll never finish...

Blue Dragon was fantastic 10 years ago. I put 100 hours into it. I don't know if it would hold up, though. The boss battle music is funny at first, but since it's the only one it becomes the wrong kind of joke later.

Thought this is a pretty good deal for those who were on the fence, like me. Actually got for $5.41 bc no-rush shipping applies to digital video games.

It's $10 as part of the Xbox spring sale. Go with Amazon if you have credits to burn

Heads-Up, copied from CAG

Gamestop Employees get a free Digital Copy of a Game called Deformers. The code is a generic code and not one time use. I don't work at GS and it's works for me.


Must have a PowerUp Rewards account.


https://www.powerupbonus.com/DigitalCode


Use your PUR Account info and The Code to use is DEFORMERSGAME.
It works. In fact it works twice if you want both a PS4 and PC copy. Game is not yet officially released, but you can download it with the code. It's a $29.99 game.
You need to have a PUR account, but the free one works.
