Amazon freebies

Amazon's gift to you is free (good) Android titles and (more) cheap videogame downloads


Said Ripley to the Android Bishop
Dec 25
[Update: There are a handful of new deals on videogame downloads, as well as some decent savings on other stuff -- including some portable hard drives that make great external storage for gaming consoles. All updated dis... 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

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

Amazon's trying to steal Steam's thunder with a bunch of PC download sales


Don't make Gabe hurt you
Dec 22
Tread lightly, Amazon. You're setting up shop in a part of town that's run by Sticky Fingers Newell and his crew. That's not just bad for business; that's bad for your kneecaps. But, here are all your wares anyway -- PC downl... read

Steam sale: Shadow Warrior, Five Nights at Freddy's 2, Alien: Isolation


Gabe doesn't have your best interests in mind
Dec 21
Sunday, Sunday, Sunday. Church, football, monster truck rallies. That's what popular convention says the back-half of the weekend's all about, right? No one thinks there's any room for Steam sales. That's why you should proba... read

Steam sale: Assassin's Creed Unity, Valkyria Chronicles, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel


Your grandma would love a copy of Castle Crashers
Dec 19
How will you be spending the second day of the Steam Holiday Sale? I suggest by doing anything other than spending money on games you may or may not ever play. Ever try cross-country skiing? In the red states, they shoot stuf... read

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


Can't stop, won't stop
Dec 15
[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

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


Yes, it's THAT bundle
Dec 10
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. read

I don't know what 'Green Monday' is, but Amazon has videogame deals for it


Only suckers pay $60 for videogames
Dec 08
I'm not sure why we need to keep designating official titles for different days to spur consumerism around the holidays. I mean, people need (and want) to buy stuff; they'll spend money regardless. Black Friday's fine. It's b... read

And other stuff you probably don't need
Dec 01
Cyber Monday's upon us -- a second opportunity for those that were too lazy (or wise) to venture out among the Black Friday masses to secure things we don't need for cheap. This is just a couple days later, and all you need t... read

Ghosts doesn't seem to have hurt Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare sales


UK week one more than Destiny, Titanfall, and Wolfenstein combined
Nov 10
Call of Duty: Ghosts was bad, even for Call of Duty.  There was some hopeful schadenfreude that this would impact series sales, that people would maybe realize these games are sort of lame, that the largest entertai... read
