This isn't something you see everyday: two GOOD (GREAT?)
games as Amazon's DotD.
First up, we have the sleeper hit, Gears of War
. This was one of those games that kind of slipped in under the radar around the holidays and slowly gained some steam after word-of-mouth spread, saying how fun it was. A lot of you probably don't own this because it's hard to find, due to the small amount of units pressed. It looks like the treasure hunters at Amazon were able to uncover a shipment buried deep in Hangar 51 and now they want you to have a copy for $34.99 + free shipping
. Sounds like a pretty good deal, but you're better off waiting a few weeks and picking up Gears of War: FES
and getting all the extra content. Video gaming is a business that moves quick, you have to be on your toes for stuff like this.
Secondly and finally (it's been such a long post), we have this year's hottest exercise training "game," Mass Effect
. I've seen this being heavily promoted all over the place, even a HUGE in-store push from Walmart for Mother's Day. It's kind of a kooky, outside-the-box idea that seems to be paying off in spades. I mean, a lot of people have trouble motivating themselves to get off the damn couch and do something; here they're being tricked by a video game. If motivation is what you need, you can get on the train for $34.99 + free shipping
. However, the slicker, more streamlined PC version is available
for $39.99 + free shipping
, so you have some options. Hey, why are there aliens and crap on the box?
