It's been a big week of deals from Amazon, what with their whole "Prelude to Black Friday" thing going on. Earlier in the week, the retailer did a huge sale of games under twenty dollars that had a lot of fantastic bargains. Today, they're doing it again, sort of. Not really.
We do have a selection of games under twenty bucks, though there is a lot more junk in here than before. Which isn't to say there are no gems. Lost Planet 2 and Darksiders are both on the list for either PS3 or Xbox 360, as is Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City. And the 360 version of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is available for a mere ten dollars, making it seem silly for me not to buy.
Also, don't forget the lightning deal. Today's clue is: "The story behind a legendary Nintendo protagonist is revealed." So, yeah, Metroid: Other M is probably a lock. Whether the discount applied is significant enough to make the purchase worthwhile remains to be seen, as the deal goes live at 10 AM Pacific.
