If you go here and do a little Facebook BS, you get $5 off a $25 Amazon order. I'm getting a $10 credit for buying Saints Row IV so that means $45 GTA V for me.

Re: Gaming Deals & Steals 2013

The Microsoft Store has a pretty good GTA V deal going on right now as well. Buy the game get a 1600 MS Points code (or $20 after the conversion) free.

I almost ordered one, but then I remembered that I actually preordered from NewEgg an entire year ago when they were doing $12 off a preorder.

Bully is like $3.75 on XBL this week. I still have the PS2 version, but I might as well grab this.

There is an Xbox Live Back-to-School sale. I don't know if it's complete on any Xbox site, or in the buried sale section on the 360 Dashboard, but CAG has a good post about it:

One thing that caught my eye is Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for $2.49. (Not Harmony of Despair, aka "Castlevania HD".
) I know people rave about the game, but the once or twice I've given it a shot, it hasn't done a whole lot for me. I may go for it anyway.

Oh man, Symphony of the Night. Haven't played that in over a decade and I still have fond memories.

I just did a SOTN runthrough not too long ago. Still holds up and the voice acting is just as terribad as ever.

Walmart Canada has some decent game deals this coming flyer. BioShock Infinite for $15 caught my eye. $199 for PS3 500GB console, or Xbox 250GB console. $149 for a 3DS XL. I think $10 for PlayStation All-Stars is good too; pretty sure it should include a voucher for a free digital Vita version.

Amazon.ca has a handful of Sony PS3 games for $10 each.

Ico is currently on PS+, and Shadow of the Colossus is coming in October, for what it's worth. If you were a member between June 2012-13, you probably already have inFamous 2.

Or if you want Arkham City, it might be cheaper at Get Games. People on reddit are saying you can buy the non-GotY version, and redeeming it in Steam will give you the GotY content free.

Don't Starve is 50% off on Steam, or again via the Humble Store. Humble does DRM-free, but Steam offers a 2-pack where you can save a few bucks per copy.

Amazon.com has The Walking Dead Steam codes on sale: $6.25 for the full Season 1; $1.25 for 400 Days (cheapest I've seen it); $7.49 for both.
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ELJRCDO

They also have Max Payne 3 and its DLC season pass for $9.99. Seems like a decent price, if you want the DLC.

Toys R Us has some gift card deals this week. Lego Marvel, new Ninja Turtles and new Spongebob game all come with $15 gift cards. Spongebob is only $29.99 and TMNT is only $39.99 (and also comes with free figures).

They also are doing a coupon toward a future game with select pre-orders, including Arkham Origins. Coupon online for Friday only to get $20 gift card with Origins.

I went in and paid $130 after tax for the first three games and the $1 deposit on Origins. I should be able to stop on my way home from work tomorrow and use my $45 gift card on Batman and leave with a $15 coupon and $20 gift card.

Guacamelee is on sale on Steam for $7.49. I've wanted to check it out for a while and like it so far.

Re: Gaming Deals & Steals 2013

Not sure if anyone else is a member of Best Buy's Gamer's Club Unlocked, but I just got an email about some major changes:

-The magazine is canceled in May
-Membership cost goes up from $15/year to $120/2 years (!)
-20% off NEW game purchases (up to 3 copies per game)

Everything else is pretty much the same as before. The $120 cost seems insane. I did, however, get a free 3 month extension, plus a coupon to get my 2 year subscription for $30 which actually makes it a very good deal. If anyone else got that coupon it seems like it's definitely worth exploring, otherwise I'd stay far, far away.

A 300% increase a year. That's a jack, especially for what? 36 bucks in game savings? That is all you get?

Re: Gaming Deals & Steals 2013

Assuming that's listed correctly it's 3 copies per game, not 3 games during the year. So if you buy 12 or more $50 games you'd break even. So I guess it's a good deal if you buy a ton of games and are cool always doing it at best buy.

That works out a little better but wow, they really went with a boast in price.
