PlayStation Store Coupon: 10% Off Games & More

Receive 10% off PS3, PS4, and more games at the Sony PlayStation Store this weekend. PlayStation has only had one of these coupons before, in recent memory, so they are fairly rare!

Click here to shop the PlayStation Store online now

  • Coupon Code: LQ8ERDQH3A
  • Discount: 10% off
  • Expiry: 30th March 2015 @ noon PST

This coupon can be used on all games including sale titles but excluding pre-orders. We are in Week 4 of the Spring Fever event at PSN. Pick up deals on the God of War franchise, Wrestlemania and more.

I mentioned the free DLC for God of War: Ascension just a few days ago. In that post, I suggested buying the entire God of War: Ascension Ultimate Edition that was $39.99 and is now on sale for $12. After this coupon code, you can actually get this mega pack with the game and the full DLC bundle for just $10.80. All other titles are 40% off their original price.

There are other good deals on as well. I invaded the 50% off games section on the PlayStation Network. While there are a lot of DLCs and game content in the sale, you can find some stand-alone titles. Zen Pinball 2: South Park Pinball (PS4) is on sale for from $4.99 down to $2.49. After coupon code, pay just $2.24 for the title. I could literally waste hours playing pinball. I started playing pinball on an old computer I had that had the game built in (as well as the usual Solitaire, Hearts, and more). I really enjoyed playing the game and have since tried my hands at a real pinball machine.

WWE 2K15 is also on sale for 50% off. Originally $59.99, the game has been discounted to $29.99. After coupon code, pay only $26.99 for this title. I could hardly believe that at this price the game was 50% off. However, I checked out the game on Xbox (same game, different platform) where it retails for $69.99. Much of the Wrestlemania franchise is on sale so check out all the games you can score here.

I am not familiar with many of these titles and I rarely buy games on the Sony PlayStation Network. That is where you come in dear Moosers! Drop us a line with your game suggestions. With an extra 10% off everything, including sale titles, now is a good time to expand your game collection.

I believe all prices are in USD. What titles are you going to buy?

Amazon Canada: Puppeteer PS3 Game Was $35 | Now $10 (FS @ $25)

Amazon Canada: Puppeteer PS3 Game Was $35 | Now $10 (FS @ $25)

Amazon Canada just dropped the price on this beautifully animated Puppeteer game for the Playstation 3. The game was $35.38, but is now on sale for just $9.99.

This game is for everyone who likes dark fairy-tales and puppets. PSN gives a quick rundown on the game’s theme:

Set in a magical puppeteer’s theatre, this title will introduce you to a strange and fantastic world, where the environment is constantly changing. Players will enjoy a rich, dark fairytale where surprises lurk around every corner.

You play a boy – Kutaro – who was stolen away to a magical land and then turned into a puppet. he displeased the tyrant of the land so much that the tyrant ate the body’s head and threw away his body. Now, with the help of a magical pair of scissors, you can help the headless Kutaro along on his adventures to find his head.

The game has some really interesting features including swappable heads! You can change your head anytime you want within the game. If you lose your head, then you lose a life. This game is pretty unique in platforming, stages, and theatrical storytelling. You use a pair of scissors to cut, chop, and crop your way through the adventures. The sets are incredibly rich, as befitting a theatre and the colours are rich.

There are only two ratings on Amazon.ca – and they are polar opposites. However, the PSN has far more ratings for the game. With 2892 ratings, the game rates a perfect 5/5 stars. Also, I price compared against the PlayStation Store. There, the game costs $39.99 just to download. I could not find this game anywhere else in Canada. When i found the game in the USA, it retailed for more than $10, I can assure you!

I think this game is beautiful just to look at and I am sure it will be visually gorgeous to play as well. With a perfect 5/5 star rating on PSN, this game is probably a hidden gem just waiting to be found and loved. Puppeteer is unique among games today and I hope it finds a home on your game shelf. At this price, it is certainly worth trying.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more. Shipping costs around $5 for orders under the minimum.

Amazon Canada: Free App of the Day Super Stickman Golf ($3 Value)

Posted by on March 25, 2015 at 1:52 PM

Amazon Canada: Free App of the Day Super Stickman Golf ($3 Value)

Usually I do not post about the free app of the day deals at Amazon Canada because I never know the quality of the game being offered. However, today Amazon Canada is offering the add-free version of Super Stickman Golf for free - valued at $3.08. This game is wicked fun and great for golf lovers and golf haters alike.

This game is so much fun to play – and I hate golf. I can only think of a few more boring sports than golf. However, Super Stickman Golf takes the game of golf to a whole new level – many levels. Use specialized sticky balls, ice balls, air brakes, and nitro balls to play courses that go beyond anything a realistic golf course would have to offer.

Try standing at the bottom of a canon… and trying to land your ball in a hole at the top. The mouth of the canon isn’t big enough to just shoot it out at a low ark. Instead, you need to use a sticky ball to stick your ball to the small canon ledges – thus working your way up to the top. These are the kinds of puzzles you will encounter in Super Stickman Golf.

I am not the only person who has been addicted to this game. On Amazon.com this game has around 480 reviews with a solid 4.6/5 stars. This is a great way to waste time while waiting for a meeting or to relax with at the end of a long day.

Now, there are in-app purchases you can get but I never found them necessary for smooth game play. Of course, there are going to be in app purchase options because the developers need to support themselves somehow.

When I was looking through screen shots for this game, I actually remembered so many of the levels. It becomes a real science as to where you need to place the ball – and sometimes that is in the opposite direction of the hole. This game is awesome for learning angles and the effect of force.

If this game sounds like your cup of tea and you want it add-free, then pick up Super Stickman Golf for the Android today.

Playstation Store: God of War Ascension Ultimate DLC Bundle PS3 FREE ($20 Value)

Posted by on March 24, 2015 at 4:45 PM

Playstation Store: God of War Ascension Ultimate DLC Bundle PS3 FREE ($20 Value)

The Playstation Store has a huge sale on the God of War franchise. Along with this up to 70% off sale, the PSN is giving away the God of War: Ascension Ultimate DLC Bundle for free. This DLC bundle usually retails for $19.99.

This bundle is for the PS3 version of God of War: Ascension. This bundle adds all add-on DLCs for God of War: Ascension multiplayer mode. The DLC pack also includes 14 sets of armour, 27 weapons, nine capes, and four tattoos. Now, you want to have the original game before you go buying any DLC pack for free as there is a bonus 48-hour 2X XP Boost. This experience boost helps you level up your warrior and get new equipment faster.

Now, say you do not own God of War: Ascension. Well sister, we can change that in a second. The Playstation network also has God of War: Ascension Ultimate Edition, for the PS3, on sale from $39.99 down to $12. If you buy this bundle, there is no need to download the above DLC Bundle. The ultimate edition already includes the entire DLC bundle. It is not worth buying the game as a stand-alone without the DLC Bundle as the game currently retails for $19.99 separately. Either you get just the DLC pack for free or you pick up the ultimate edition for $12. Those are your best deals.

I could not fairly price compare this deal, but I did find the regular God of War: Ascension game on Amazon Canada for $13.99. That is without the DLC Bundle. As the DLC bundle is valued at $20, I think this is a great offer. Of course, it is an amazing offer if you have the game but never bothered to pay extra for any DLCs. You can just download that content for free.

All other titles are on sale for 40% off their original price. Pick up God of War titles for the PS Vista, PSP, and PS3 during this sale.

Play Cards Against Humanity For FREE Online @ Cards Against Originality

Posted by on March 19, 2015 at 10:05 PM

Play Cards Against Humanity For FREE Online @ Cards Against Originality

Get ready to have some outrageous fun because you can now play Cards Against Humanity for free online!

So why is the online version of this popular and highly addicting game under a different name, that of Cards Against Originality? It’s because it wasn’t actually made by the founders of Cards Against Humanity.

However, because Cards Against Humanity is under a Creative Commons license, it gives anyone the right to take this game and do whatever they want with it, including putting it online.

If you have never played this game, then it’s definitely worth trying both with a bunch of friends and online, but I do suggest loading up on booze first. Some of the sentence combinations aren’t exactly PG-friendly, nor are they even friendly for the average audience! Here’s what our very own Anna had to say about Cards Against Humanity:

I LOVE Cards Against Humanity! It’s an excellent game to pull out at a party… but not if anyone is in any way prudish. It can get quite rude, so it’s not for the faint of heart. I’ve played it quite a few times with different people now. Even though the same cards sometimes crop up, you can use them in different combinations as you are being asked different questions each time. One of my best combos was this:
Question: What keeps Barack Obama awake at night? Answer: Michelle Obama’s arms.

As for how to play this outrageous game, it’s really quite simple. After a black card is drawn, each player must complete the sentence on the card with their funniest white card.

If you want to get the physical and actual version of this controversial game, then you can pick it up for $30 at Amazon and there are a total of five expansions. Having played the original version of this game without adding any expansion, I can tell you that you can play it several times without getting bored of seeing the same cards but that if you plan on playing a lot, then it’s definitely worth getting the expansion packs as you’re more likely to forget most cards.

What’s also cool is that if you check out the official Cards Against Humanity site, then you can also download a PDF version of the entire deck. Then, you just need to print, cut out the cards and invite a couple of friends over to play while sipping Margaritas.

Steam Powered: 75% Off Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier – Only $4.99

Posted by on March 15, 2015 at 4:44 PM

Steam Powered: 75% Off Tom Clancys Ghost Recon Future Soldier   Only $4.99

Steam Powered has a crazy deal on Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier for the PC. Originally $19.99, the game is now only $4.99. At 75% off, you will not find a better price for this game on any console.

Price comparing is not as hard as I thought it would be. Walmart Canada has the PC version (digital code) for $19.97. I also price compared across a few platforms to give you an idea of what is out there. The Sony Playstation Store sells the PS3 version for $19.99 (digital version). Tiger Direct sells the PS3 version for $22.47 plus shipping. EB Games has both the Xbox and PS3 versions refurbished for $9.95 plus shipping.

The most competitive deal right now is from good ol’ Amazon Canada. The PC version is currently $9.99 + $4.99 shipping (from marketplace seller). The PS3 version is on sale from $19.99 down to $7.91. This is the best deal I saw on the PS3 version, so pick it up if you have that console!

For the PC, this is the best deal you are going to find. The tag-line “only the dead fight fair” is pretty appropriate for this war game. Join a special team of soldiers geared up with the latest in technological combat gear. The odds are not in your favour so you had better work your butt off to even them out a little. The reviews for this couple year old game are positive. One reviewer says:

Tactical 3rd person shooters have always interested me, and not a single Ghost Recon game has disappointed me. I always walked away satisfied and craving for more fun as a future soldier.

There are but a few complaints. One person said that the multi-player section is pretty dead with few to no players available. The only other ‘major complaint’ concerns length. Many reviewers wished the game were a little longer. This is a plus as well – you only want games you enjoy to last. If you do not like the game, you will think it cannot end soon enough.

Many of the original reviews for the game were quite negative due to bugs that Ubisoft was a little late on fixing. Make sure you check out the more recent reviews for an accurate assessment of the game.

NCIX Canada: NVIDIA Shield 32GB Tablet – Now Just $460 + 3 Freebies ($160 Value!)

Posted by on March 12, 2015 at 9:55 PM

NCIX Canada: NVIDIA Shield 32GB Tablet   Now Just $460 + 3 Freebies ($160 Value!)Get it while you still can: the NVIDIA Shields tablet is currently on sale for just $459.99 and even comes with the following 3 freebies: a cover, a controller and a games coupon with a $29.99 value. Shipping is free as well.

An unlocked version of this tablet is also currently on sale at Newegg for $449.99, down from the original price tag of $499.99. It may be $10 cheaper than at NCIX but it doesn’t include all of the freebies, which would have otherwise cost the following amounts:

Altogether, that comes up to $145.97 in savings!Let’s say you were to get this tablet at Newegg along with all of these products separately, then you would be looking at a $595.96. That’s without tax, so can you just imagine how much more you would have to pay?

Arguably, you wouldn’t necessarily need all those items but let’s face it, a cover is extremely useful and so is the included games coupon. Plus, if you plan to use this tablet to game, then the controller is a must-buy as it will significantly enhance your game play.

To get to the tablet itself though, it features an 8″ screen that is 1920 x 1200 and is full HD. It also boasts 2.2GHz ARM Cortex A15 CPU and 2GB RAM.

The cool part about this tablet is that you could even transform it into a console by hooking it up to a TV and playing your favourite game that way with the use of the controller.

On PC Mag, this tablet garnered a fab rating of 4/5 stars with this as the bottom line:

If you need a tablet with always-on connectivity, the Nvidia Shield Tablet should be at the top of your list whether you use it for gaming or not.

As you can see, you don’t necessarily need to be a gamer to get it. If you don’t anticipate playing any games, then you could always try to sell the remote and the games coupon. You might want to keep the cover as it’s flexible enough to be molded to stand in a variety of positions — definitely very handy, especially for watching TV shows or movies!

Amazon.ca: Call of Duty Ghosts (XBox 360) Was $30 | Now $5 *HOT*

Posted by on March 10, 2015 at 12:19 PM

Amazon.ca: Call of Duty Ghosts (XBox 360) Was $30 | Now $5 *HOT*

A few days ago, Call of Duty: Ghosts for the PS3 went on sale for $4.99 and sold out very quickly! Today, Amazon Canada dropped their price on the xBox 360 version. Call of Duty: Ghosts (xBox 360) is now on sale from $29.99 down to $4.99. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more at Amazon or pay around $5 for just this game to be shipped out.

A quick price comparison shows that this game is well below any other retailer’s price. Here is what other Canadian retailers are selling the xBox 360 version for:

  • $29.99 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $29.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $29.99 @ Toys R Us Canada
  • $49.99 @ Chapters Indigo Canada

Used copies retail for $24.99 at Best Buy and Future Shop. Essentially, you are getting a new copy for $20 cheaper than a used copy. Really, you cannot do better than that.

This game is really not that old. Released in November 2013, this first-person shooter video game is part of the Call of Duty line of games. I checked out the game on metacritic, where it has a 73/100 rating via critics. I did find out some interesting info on player development, which I thought I would share:

In Call of Duty: Ghosts you don’t just create a class, you create a soldier. Choose the head, body type, head-gear and equipment, and you can even create a female soldier for the first time. With over 20,000 possible combinations, you can create the soldier you’ve always wanted. And each soldier you create will also have his or her own load outs

I find it fascinating that you can create female soldiers in this game as female characters are often ignored in first-person shooter games like this. I really like this development, as I would love to create a kick-ass female soldier. I like males well enough, but creating a character within a game is a way of inserting yourself into the game in avatar form. I like to game, but i do not need a sex change!

If you want to see how this game plays on the xBox 360, there are plenty of YouTube videos to give you a walk through. I picked out this one, as it is nice and short.

Call of Duty: Ghosts (PS3) Only $5 @ Amazon.ca *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 8, 2015 at 4:45 PM

Call of Duty: Ghosts (PS3) Only $5 @ Amazon.ca *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Call of Duty: Ghosts for the PS3 is on sale for a steal! Originally $29.99, the game is now being sold for $4.99! Amazon Canada offers free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Now, I price compared this game and the deal at Amazon Canada is out of this world! Here is what other retailers are currently selling the game for:

  • $29.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $29.99 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $29.99 @ Toys R Us Canada
  • $49.99 @ Chapters Indigo Canada

The price comparisons are hardly comparisons – the game is just an incredible deal at Amazon right now. I found some used titles for sale through other retailers, and they all retailed for $19.99 to $24.99 as well. I could not find a copy of this game – anywhere – for cheaper.

Now, I know nothing about this game but the fans on Amazon Canada are all over it. One reviewer said:

Its an pretty good game. The best part of the game would definitely have to be the campaign. The multiplayer is not as good as some previous call of duty titles, but its okay.

Overall, the game rates 4.4/5 stars with 36 reviews. I also checked the rating on Amazon.com as they usually have more reviewers. With 1,575 reviews, the game ranks a solid 3.9/5 stars. That is a bit lower than it is on Amazon Canada, but still very solid. Need I remind you that this is a $5 game? I thought not.

Here is a synopsis of the game:

This new chapter in the Call of Duty franchise features a new dynamic where players are on the side of a crippled nation fighting not for freedom, or liberty, but simply to survive.

This is totally not my type of game, but is certainly worth the money Amazon is asking. Even if you are on the fence about this game, I am pretty sure you could trade it in for more money than you are actually paying. EB games generally has a very good trade-in policy and PS3 games are still in demand.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more. Under that, expect to pay around $5 for shipping.

Free Syndicate Game @ Origin.com ($4.99 Value)

Posted by on March 4, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Free Syndicate Game @ Origin.com ($4.99 Value)

Syndicate is the new on the house game of the month. Regularly priced at $4.99, this old but good game is now FREE to download for the month of March.

As with all on the house deals at Origin.com, this is an older game – released in 1993. The game is available for PC only, and once you claim this deal, the game is free for you to keep. This is not a demo and this is not a trial. The game is yours permanently.

I assume that nostalgia will fuel most people who claim this game. If you played Syndicate back in the day, I am sure you are going to have a blast running through it again. Sure, graphics has come a long way since 1993, but it is sometimes fun to go back and play the games of our childhood. Here is a brief description of the game if you are not familiar:

You are an ambitious marketing director in the Syndicate, hand-picked to lead a team of cyborg mercenaries. You work in the problem-solving department and you are damn good at “taking care” of problems. Some might say that violence is not the answer but you know better. There here are hardly any problems that you can’t solve with a well-placed bullet.

Except for the cyborgs, that sounds pretty much like a lot of business transactions in large multinational companies these days. They just ‘wipe out’ the competition. Oops!

I looked up the game on GOG for some reviews. This old game has an overall rating of 4.5/5 stars and the reviews blather on about how awesome this game was for the day and how going back to play the game has been fantastic. While you see the errors in the game now, it is still an immersive experience that is fun and rewarding. One reviewer said:

Absolutely epic cyberpunk tactical action. The sprite graphics are pretty for what they are and surprisingly satisfactory for being from 1993. The sound is fantastic. The Uzi and minigun droning is disturbingly pleasing, and the music suspenseful.

There is more to this review, you can check it and other reviews out on GOG where the game (plus expansion) retail for $5.99.

The Evil Within Was $66.50 | Now $22.60 @ Steam Powered

Posted by on March 3, 2015 at 3:00 PM

The Evil Within Was $66.50 | Now $22.60 @ Steam Powered

The Evil Within was just released in October, so this deal is on a fairly new game. Originally $66.49, it is on sale for just $22.60 CAN at Steam Powered.

It is pretty hard to compare prices on digital downloads with their physical equals. However, you are getting the same game – just for a different console. I located some PC versions at local stores to price compare with:

  • $59.95 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $59.95 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $34.99 + $4.99 Shipping @ Amazon.ca (marketplace)
  • $69.99 @ EB Games
  • $69.96 @ Walmart Canada

As you can see, Steam Powered has the best price for the PC version of this game. Even for console versions, the lowest I have seen the game was $30 in this sale Margarita blogged about a bit ago.

This game is pretty scary. If you are not into gore, horror, and mass murder – then you might want to pick another game. As one critic on Metascore said:

The Evil Within has achieved something that not many games have lately: It scared me. Thanks for Mikami-san!

I am not into games that scare me so I have not even watched the trailer for this game. I do know that Detective Sebastian Castellanos is investigating some horrific murders when things go from bad to worse. He witnesses the slaughter of his fellow officers, gets knocked unconscious, and wakes up immersed in a world of hideous creatures and the dead. This is not a game to play before bedtime kiddies!

Now, there is a lot of people who love the game and those who hate it. You must be into psychological horror to enjoy this game. Also, many reviews for the game came out pre-patch. This patch fixed some of the major complaints including black borders to make it feel ‘cinematic’ and some issues with awards not coming through if you were in different modes.

Now, most reviewers will lay out the pros and the cons. One reviewer said:

It is very heavily action focussed which depending on your tastes can be good or bad. Stealth is present, but feels shoehorned in and can sometimes be unreliable. The gunplay feels satisfying and can be quite tense when missing a headshot with low ammo, especially on the harder difficulties.

Many reviewers also say that the storyline is confusing but as you progress in the game it becomes clearer. Now, if this game is not your cup of tea, Resident Evil 5 is also on sale from $19.99 down to $6.80.

Are you excited about the new Resident Evil Revelations 2 game? Until tomorrow, you can use the Greenman Gaming coupon code below to get a 25% discount on this game. Featuring a retail price of $39.99, it can be yours for just $30 instead.

Click here to get Resident Evil Revelations 2 @ GreenmanGaming.com now

  • Coupon Code: 25OFFR-ESEVIL-REVEL2
  • Discount: 25% off Resident Evil Revelations 2
  • Expires: 25th February 2015 @ 5pm

Set to be released on February 25th, this single player game continues the story of Claire Redfield, a survivor of the Raccoon City incident, who now works for Terra Save, an anti-bioterrorism organization. She gets kidnapped and imprisoned in the very first episode and it will be your job to manoeuvre around the story line to get her out.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 comes with:

  • Episodes 1-4
  • Extra episodes for 1 & 2
  • Character costume pack
  • Raid mode character (Hunk & Wesker)
  • Raid mode throwback map pack

Unlike the previous Resident Evil Revelations 2 game, assistive co-op play is a key feature of the 2nd instalment. Here’s what IGN’s Lucy O’Brien had to say about it in her review of the first episode:

You can – and will likely want to – switch between characters on the fly. Although I would have liked more co-op puzzle solving, split-screen combat dynamics are particularly fun; as one character in each pair is significantly under-powered against enemies, you must learn to communicate with your partner in order to stay alive.

Other key features include but are not limited to weekly episodes, the return of Barry, new enemy types and much more.

Keep in mind that since Greenman Gaming specializes in the sale of PC games, you will only get a PC download of this a game. If you would prefer to get it on a console, then it’s 5% off at Amazon.ca and can be yours for $37.99 for play on an Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4. It’s set to be released on March 10th.

For those of you with a PlayStation, it has been said that following the official release of this game, it will be available on cross-buy, albeit with some prerequisites. This means that if you get it for the PS3, then you will also be able to play it on the PS4 and vice versa. However, this feature is only available to those to pre-order the game and it also won’t be available immediately upon launch. Read more about it on Capcom’s blog.

Diablo 3 Ultimate Edition PS4 & Xbox One – Was $70 | Now $39 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on February 20, 2015 at 12:43 PM

Diablo 3 Ultimate Edition PS4 & Xbox One   Was $70 | Now $39 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Gamers! Amazon Canada has dropped the price substantially on Diablo 3 Ultimate Edition for the PS4 and the Xbox One. The price for the game on these new consoles is cheaper than it is for the PS3 and the Xbox 360. Originally $69.99, Diablo 3 Ultimate Evil Edition is now on sale for $39 with free shipping.

You can select either console edition through the link above. I price compared this PS4 and Xbox edition with other retails to find it substantially more expensive elsewhere:

  • $64.99 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $64.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $69.99 @ EB Games (new)
  • $59.99 @ EB Games (recycled)

You would also have to pay shipping at EB games if you bought from there. I checked Walmart Canada as well, but they only have the game for older consoles. Amazon Canada’s price is the best you can get right now – and it is hot!

There are two different versions – one is English only and the other is French only. May sure you buy the right version or you might end up with a game in a language you do not speak. Evidently the French version for the PS4 does have an English language software package that can be installed so the game plays in English. i do not know if the English version has a language pack you could install for French. This is rather silly in my mind – if movies can be bilingual, why can’t a game?

Over, this game is a killer purchase at this price. It also has garnered high reviews from gamers. One reviewer on the Xbox One edition said:

Addicting as hell, I spent the last 12 hours playing non-stop, forgot to eat, drink and call my girlfriend to tell her I loved her, I’m now single. You want a game that will make you forget you have a life? Buy this.

I feel sorry for his girlfriend.

What blows my mind is that such a popular title is currently on sale for 40% off its original price – for the two newest consoles. How on earth did that ever happen? Even the recycled version at EB games is not that cheap.

You will receive free shipping on this game as it costs over $25. This is a win-win situation my lovely Moosers! Pick up this game before it sells out.

Besides sales, PlayStation Network rarely has any extra deals of any sort. However, this week they are offering $15 credit back when you spend $100 or more at the PSN store.

The deal is simple. Spend $100 using your SEN wallet from now until the 24th of February. Third party application purchases are excluded from this offer. Between February 24th and March 2nd you will receive a coupon code good for one (1) PSN/SEN account to redeem the SEN wallet Top Up via the PlayStation Store worth $15. This promotional code will be emailed out to you. You need to redeem the code for your $15 credit by 31st March 2015.

You can then use the free credit against any future games, movies, music, or anything else that you can use your SEN wallet to pay for on the Sony Network.

The $100 can be spent on both regular and sale priced games from what I can tell. Raid the sale section to maximize your savings while still earning the $15 bonus. The Critics Choice Sale is currently on the PSN. Enjoy 30% off all Dragon Age: Acquisition games for both the PS4 and the PS3.This game has a near perfect 5/5 star rating on the PSN network with over 11,000 voters. One reviewer on Amazon said:

From the stunning visuals, to the very intricate social balance of your ever growing inquisition, to the most intuitive and customizable crafting system in an rpg ive ever seen. Ea fully delivered bringing this series to its full glory and potential on the new consoles, fully utilizing the power with large open expanses and intricate forests and more maps than you can explore.

FIFA 15 is also on sale at a sprightly 40% off for both consoles as well. I love the world of LOTR and The Hobbit so Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Legion Edition looks fantastic. The average rating is a solid 4/5 stars. Receive 40% off both console editions.

The Critics Choice Sale has between 30% and 70% off plenty of sweet games. Some are celebrated indie titles while others are mainstream games you already know. If you spend $100 or more during this sale then you will save up to 70% off the games you want and earn a bonus $15 credit. Together, the Critics Choice Sale and this promotion from Sony Network are really good.

Amazon Canada: Settlers of Catan Was $47   Now Just $29 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

It’s winter, it’s cold, so pass the time with a new board game! The Settlers of Catan is currently on sale for just $29.39 at Amazon right now. It was originally priced at $47.04, thus putting it at a 38% discount.

This is undoubtedly the lowest price that we have seen for this game in a very long while, so if you have been waiting for a price drop, then  now is as good a time as any to get it!

For those of you who have never heard of this game before, it’s a very fun family board game that is super easy to learn and needs to be played with 3 or 4 players. It’s not just for kids either. I have played this game a couple of times with friends, snacks and plenty of drinks. It’s not as fight-inducing as Monopoly but do keep in mind that some feathers can get ruffled, though all in due fun of course!

The Settlers of Catan is so popular that it actually has a near perfect rating on Amazon with a total of 4.8/5 stars and over 160 reviews. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

What I love about this game is that it’s engaging all the time. not your typical roll the dice move the mice game. you have to pay attention every time the die is rolled to it’s intellectually stimulating and requires strategy.

And here’s another review in case you need any more convincing to get it right now:

Love Settlers of Catan. lots of information when you first start playing, you may think to yourself ” Ill never understand this” Once you play a couple of times it gets addictive. I like the fact every time you play it’s a different board and the add on games to go with this are a big plus. Great way to pass those long cold winter days.

Since Amazon automatically ships orders over $25 for free, you’re sure to get this board game delivered straight to your door at no extra cost.

Toys R Us currently has the family edition of this game on sale for $34.99, while Chapters Indigo is selling it for its full price of $49.95.
