Xbox Live sale: Learn about other cultures, shoot all other cultures


Mutually exclusive, of course
Apr 21
// Brett Makedonski
Xbox Live's small weekly Deals with Gold sale features an interesting juxtaposition of games this week. One title strives to teach you about an under-represented culture. Most of the rest task you with lining up across from p...

Cheap games. Woo!
Apr 16
// Vikki Blake
PlayStation has discounted a metric crapton of games on the PSN Europe Store from now until the end of April. First up, Dying Light stars as the Deal of the Week, available until April 22 for €49.99/ £39.99/AU$69.99 (previously €69.99/£54.99/AU$99.95). Unless you're in Germany. For some reason. Sorry (not my fault. Honest).

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...

According to a media release from Nintendo, the Wii U sold almost 30 percent more hardware and over 75 percent more games in 2014 than the previous year, likely fueled by the one-two punch of Mario Kart 8 (1.7 million physica...

This isn't over yet, huh?
Dec 23
// Brett Makedonski
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.

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


Are you not entertained?
Dec 22
// Brett Makedonski
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.

Microsoft brings back Black Friday Xbox One bundles with extra free game


Yes, it's THAT bundle
Dec 10
// Dealzon
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...) With Christmas right around the corner and the holiday sale volume still relatively high, Microsoft Store is running a "12 Days of Deals" Holiday promotion. For today only, it brought back three of its Black Friday Xbox One bundles.
