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.

Disclosure-bot: Just in case the editor neglected to mention it, we have zero control when deals start and end. Deals can sometimes be gone within minutes (please don't shoot the messenger). Trying deal links even hours after this article's time stamp may lead to self-punching, so maybe bookmark our video game deals if you're on the hunt. Also, it goes without saying, but some shopping links do directly support the author. If you've spotted any inaccuracy please let us know asap.
