Amazon doesn't take the weekend off because videogame deals don't stop


Can't stop, won't stop

Apparently-controller-compatible Sonic CD is Amazon's free Android app of the day for about seven more hours. This staggering deal will literally save you dollars compared to the usual $3 price tag. Use them well. I'm going to buy a lottery ticket and burn the other two as sacrifice. For luck.
