Sony caused "unnecessary disappointment"

There are also a bunch of separate bundles if only certain things interest you
Mar 27
Sega is sailing onto Steam with sales this sweekend. On this page you'll find a general list of things on sale. It is deceptive because a $2.50 Jet Set Radio or a $6.80 Valkyria Chronicles share as much screen space as the "S... read

Xbox has another Ultimate Game Sale up its sleeve


Deals galore!
Feb 17
There's a tiny niche audience of consumers that love both buying things and doing it at a discount. Seriously, just the smallest sliver on a Venn diagram. Still, Microsoft's doing its best to cater to that sub-section with an... read

PlayStation Plus was such a clever way to migrate people towards the idea of paying for online mulitplayer. It's still a good service, but also sly as hell. I let my membership lapse last year, but I'm (probably) in the minor... read

Steam sale

Steam sale: Just Cause 2, Garry's Mod, Goat Simulator


This isn't over yet, huh?
Dec 23
Much to my dismay, the Steam Holiday Sale is still going on. Maybe it'll never end. Maybe discounted PC games are the new standard. And then Valve will further slash the prices of select games -- causing a sale within a sale -- a paradox capable of ripping apart the fabric of this fragile existence. Don't enable Valve and its world-ending ways. read

Steam sale: The Walking Dead, Outlast, Saints Row IV


Are you not entertained?
Dec 22
Steam's trottin' out its (approximately) two-week train of titles, hoping to sell a few more units of each. As the consumer, you get to give a personal yay or nay on every single one of these. You're the emperor in Gladiator that pauses dramatically before casting a thumbs-up or a thumbs-down. You decide whether these games live or die. You really shouldn't have this much power. read

Can't stop, won't stop

[Update: Amazon's discounted Assassin's Creed Unity down to $29.99 for Monday only. That's half off a game that's days more than a month old. Calls for a quick bump, in my opinion. All these other videogame deals from th... read

Yes, it's THAT bundle

It's the return of the bundle with the game name that can't be spoken. (We're talking about Assassin's Creed Unity -- hmm, wait a sec...)

For today only, it brought back three of its Black Friday Xbox One bundles. read
