Save 61%! Dungeons and Dragons Boardgame: The Wrath of Ashardalon Was $64.47 | Now $33 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

D&D players, we are calling your name! Check out the Dungeons and Dragons: The Wrath of Ashardalon game. This game was $64.47 but is now discounted to $32.99. This item qualifies for completely free super save shipping.

Whether you are a fan of Dungeons and Dragons or just in the mood to learn, you should check out this amazing deal on the Dungeons and Dragons board game, The Wrath of Ashardalon. If you love science fiction and fantasy, this game might be a good starter. This game is a lighter version of D&D, but the pieces can be mixed with other Dungeons and Dragons games.  I would say most games last between 45 minutes to an hour and a half, making it a great option for those who are looking for only a taste of the epic game. You can play this game alone or with up to five friends.

This would make a great gift for a budding sci-fi fan. I have played this game a few times and it is a lot of fun. I do not consider myself a heavy Dungeons and Dragons player. I have a few friends who are heavier players and they suggested we all try this game at one of our game nights. Even better, the stakes were even so I was not completely killed off by the more experienced players once I caught on to the game. You can pick up this game with no previous knowledge of how to play Dungeons and Dragons, I did!

This game is not sold at many of the major retailers online. Games like this one tend to be sold at specialty stores or dedicated game stores. A few other bigger retailers carry this game. Over at Chapters Indigo, this board game is currently on sale for $47.02. You could pick this game up at Beau Baby for $64.99.

Most of the reviews for this are long. Dungeon and Dragons players tend to be serious about their games. So many of the reviews I found either just say the game was fun or are fairly in depth giving you full details of how to play. Buyers are praising this game for having many pieces that are easily integrated into other games, and for overall being a lot of fun. If you are hooked on the game, know you can easily expand this into a lot more play.

Grab your copy now while the price is still excellent. If you walk into any serious game store, you will pay much more for this fantastic game. You will be all set to hold you next game night BBQ with this fun game.

Amazon.ca Coupon Code: 10% off Pre-Order Video Games!

Posted by on May 18, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Amazon.ca Coupon Code: 10% off Pre Order Video Games!

It’s not very often that Amazon.ca releases a generic coupon code for a discount on select product ranges, they’re incredibly rare. But just now, I’ve spotted that there is a promo code for a 10% discount on the list price of many pre-order video games. This is incredibly rare from Amazon, so I decided to blog it!

Click here to use the Amazon.ca coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: MAYSAVE10
  • Discount: 10% off pre-orders
  • Expires: Unknown
  • Terms: Excludes Halo 5: Guardians and LEGO Dimensions

The coupon code is apparently valid while stocks last, so we aren’t really sure when they will end it. If there was a particular video game that you were interested in getting, then make your purchase now and think later. Amazon’s customer service is very good – so you could buy now and think later and still be able to get a refund if you change your mind.

And don’t forget that Amazon also have a pre-order price guarantee – if you order a game now and the price drops before it is released, then you will only pay the lower price. This is a great guarantee, and also an encouragement to put your orders in now.

Pre-order video games can be incredibly pricey, so this coupon code will help for a bit of a discount on those prices.

Let me show you a few examples of the Amazon.ca price on a couple of top titles:

There are many more titles to choose from, there are pre-orders on hundreds of upcoming releases.

Remember, everything above $25 gets free super saver shipping from Amazon anyway!

Humble Bundle Spring Sale Up to 93% Off Games

Posted by on May 13, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Humble Bundle Spring Sale Up to 93% Off Games

Humble Bundle is hosting a spring sale on their website. Some deals will be available for the entire duration of the sale while other deals change every 24 hours (on a 1 PM EST cycle). I wanted to let you know about the sale and point out some of today’s deals!

You will receive a Steam code for all of these games as game redemption (and play) is through Steam Powered (for most of the games). That means you can get great deals on games and still play them on your favourite gaming platform.

There is a dollar deal every day of this sale. Today’s deal is Men of War : Vietnam Special Edition, which was $14.99 and is now on sale for $0.99. Men of War: Vietnam Special Edition includes the full version of Men of War: Vietnam ($10.99 on Steam) plus bonus maps and content that is not included in the original game ($5.49 on Steam). The original game has mixed reviews but the expansion has 100% positive responses on Steam.

There are many other games on sale for high discounts. This cute Bridge Constructor Medieval game looks to be a lot of fun for people into building games, puzzles, and cute graphics. The game costs $10.99 on Steam, but is only $1.99 through Humble Bundle. One reviewer on Steam said:

Combines simplified bridge building with Total War. Build a great bridge to keep your warriors safe and resources moving. Build a crap bridge to get the enemy past the point of no return, only to have the structure fail.

This sounds like a game that I would enjoy.

PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate is another cute game at a fantastic price. Originally $9.99, the game is on sale for $0.99 at Humble Bundle. The game will give you hours of entertainment for a loonie. You play Tikiman, the Forest Defender, who needs to place defence towers around his realm to keep the monsters from eating his little ones. Think of the children! The game is currently $10.99 on Steam Powered.

I assume all Humble Bundle prices are in USD. Even so, these prices are extraordinarily good and you should check back each day for new deals. The Humble Bundle sale really gives you the opportunity to load up on games for pocket change. The entire spring sale goes through the 21st of May.

Steam Powered: 80% off Strategy First Games

Posted by on May 12, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Steam Powered: 80% off Strategy First Games

Steam Powered is hosting an anniversary sale for video game publisher Strategy First. Many of you will not know this, but Strategy First is a Canadian video game publisher out of Montreal, Quebec. The company is most known for the Disciples series, Jagged Alliance series, O.R.B: Off-World Resource Base, and Space Empires series. Right now, you can score 80% off a vast selection of Strategy First games.

Seriously, this is a wicked deal! If you are into their well-known titles, then you will not be disappointed. Disciples II: Gallean’s Return and Disciples II: Rise of the Elves are both on sale from $7.79 down to $1.55 per game. While these are slightly older games (2006), they both achieved Metascores of 80+ and they are also an inexpensive purchase for a night of gaming: less than a toonie each!

You may think this is just a sale of old games, and you would be wrong. Empress Of The Deep is a strategy, adventure, and hidden object game where you solve puzzles, find hidden clues, and more. The game usually retails for $5.49, but it is on sale for $1.09 right now. One reviewer said:

Empress of the Deep is a quick dip into a still, ancient, underwater world. It’s a little like Amerzone with more water and hidden objects, which makes it a happy light entertainment for, say, downtime at work, which is where I played it in 15- and 20-minute slices.

I also like the visuals and theme of Hunters Of The Dead. In it, you need to rescue fellow hunters and then, together, hunt down and destroy Dracula. People say this is a rogue type game with good graphics and weapons. However, the upgrade system seems a bit out of balance. Originally $5.49, the game is on sale for $1.09.

There seem to be plenty of small indie games included in this sale. If you like hidden-object games, then there are plenty of games to choose from. There are also many mini adventure games that will take you a few hours to complete. Whether you like gods, war, fantasy, or something else… there are many different themes to choose from as well. Unfortunately, I did not see anything unicorn based but this  Avoid – Sensory Overload game for $1.09 comes very close. I used an image from the game as the banner above.

Enjoy all these games and more during this weeklong sale.

Steam Powered: The Witcher Game Franchise Up to 85% Off

Posted by on May 9, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Steam Powered: The Witcher Game Franchise Up to 85% Off

This weekend, Steam has discounted The Witcher game franchise 50% to 85% off the original game prices. This is a great time to pick up The Witcher games in anticipation for the release of The Witcher III.

The choice is not which The Witcher game you will pick up because you will probably buy both of them, and then add on The Witcher: adventure Game just for kicks. The first two games are only going to cost you a bit of pocket change really.

The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director’s Cut

This is the game that started it all – except in an enhanced edition (which is the new norm.). Originally $10.99, the game is now on sale for $1.64.This is a fun RPG where you play a legendary monster slayer on the hunt. The game is both Mac and PC compatible. Metascores are one of the best ways to rate the strength of a game and The Witcher 1 received an 86/100 score: very solid. As one reviewer says:

Do yourself a favor and play The Witcher if you love games like Mass Effect and Dragon Age.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition

If you are going to whet your appetite on The Witcher 1, you might as well buy The Winter 2 as well. Originally $21.99, the game is now on sale for $3.29. You pay under $5 for both these games. This edition has an even better Metascore than its predecessor, garnering an 88/100 rating. One reviewer said:

The Witcher 2 is by far one of best RPG games I’ve ever played. Open world game play, great environment and amazing story and More than 2-3 endings. I would recommend this game to any fans of the witcher games or any RPG fans.

The Witcher Adventure Game

Lastly, we have The Witcher adventure game that was just released last November. This game is only 50% off opposed to the other two that are 85% off. Originally $10.99, the game is on sale for $5.49. This is a bit different from the other games in that:

The Witcher Adventure Game is a digital adaptation of CD PROJEKT RED’s board game set in the brutal fantasy universe of monster slayer Geralt of Rivia.

I actually think that turning The Witcher into a board game is cool. I rather enjoy board games but there are rarely enough people around to play them.

iPad Freebie: Get Big Fish Games’ Web Of Deceit Deadly Sands Collector’s Edition FREE (Was $7) @ iTunes Store

Posted by on May 3, 2015 at 12:00 PM

iPad Freebie: Get Big Fish Games Web Of Deceit Deadly Sands Collectors Edition FREE (Was $7) @ iTunes Store

Got an iPad? Then here’s a great game from Big Fish Games for you to play for free. It’s only free for the next couple of days, after which point, it will go back up to its original price of $6.99.

As much as you can get Big Fish Games’ Web of Deceit game by clicking on the link above and then getting it through your iTunes program, you could also more simply just bust out your iPad and download it there.

Although I don’t have an iPad and can’t try this game out for myself, it certainly looks like fun, as you can see in this YouTube video. I have played other games from Big Fish Games on my iPhone before and I can tell you that they’re definitely really fun. If you need to kill time, then a free game is the best way to go! iPad Freebie: Get Big Fish Games Web Of Deceit Deadly Sands Collectors Edition FREE (Was $7) @ iTunes Store

It’s basically a story-driven game that appears to have a mystery theme as after discovering a mysterious case while visiting your uncle, you notice that people are turning up dead after disappearing for a couple of days. Just the description alone reminds me of a Harper Connelly plot (a series by Charlaine Harris), though of course, it’s a well-used plot starter as well in fiction. Your mission is to find out whole killed them by navigating through the story line.

With this Collector’s Edition, you will also receive bonus content in the form of an extra chapter, along with access to concept art and special game-related wallpapers.

Excellent time consuming

If you would prefer to give this game a try on your PC, then you can get the PC version of Web of Deceit Deadly Sands for just $2.99 (reg. $10.21) with the Big Fish Games coupon code NEW299 if it’s your first time trying out a game from their site. Here’s a review from the PC version:

This is a great game played on the one hour free – that just flew past!!! The very pleasing game where the hero detective person is a Male!

Steam: Up to 96% Off Games Sale – Games Starting @ 21¢

Posted by on April 29, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Steam: Up to 96% Off Games Sale   Games Starting @ 21¢

Check out the weeklong games sale at Steam Powered for up to 96% off Steam games.

There are indeed games discounted for 96% off in this sale. The Hat Man: Shadow Ward is on sale from $5.49 down to just 21¢! While the reviews on this indie survival horror game are mixed, it will certainly give you several hours of entertainment for less than a quarter.

For 90% off, you can score the Frederic Bundle with two great indie games in it. Originally $10.99, the bundle will only cost you $1.09. The games are on sale individually as well, but you save an extra $0.42 with the bundle.

Are you screaming for some mainstream content yet? Well, there are plenty of games that even I have heard about in this sale. I am not a fan of first-person shooter or anything that comes close to war, horror, etc. but these titles are quite familiar to me.

You can also purchase Dragon Age: Origins for slightly more than the Awakening edition. Originally $19.99, Origins is on sale for $4.99. There are many raving reviews on the Dragon Age series, and one reviewer things that Origins is the best that you can get:

If you are a fan of rpg’s then you cannot let this game pass and give it a try, it has a really full lore in it for those that love it as well as a easy learning curve (gameplay wise) out of all the DA games this one is pretty much the best of all, sure it’s the first one and the others may have some improvements but they don’t get that feeling of accomplishment that this one gave.

I think that out of all the games above, I would be most interested in trying Dragon Age. It is a fighting game, but you get to go up against cool looking evil creatures, dragons, and an arch-demon. Overall, that sounds like a great Saturday afternoon of gaming. At this price, each game costs less than a ticket to the movies. I can even make my own popcorn at home and eat it in my pyjamas.

There are four whole pages of sale games to choose from. I highly recommend this sale if you are looking to expand your game collection.

Steam Powered: 75% Off The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Now $5.49 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 26, 2015 at 11:56 AM

Steam Powered: 75% Off The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim   Now $5.49 (EXPIRED)

Steam Powered is offer 75% off the highly celebrated The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Originally $21.99, the game is on sale for only $5.49.

This game is one of the best. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim earned a Metacritic score of 94/100. However, Skyrim has had a recent flash of negative reviews on Steam Powered. What is up with that? Well, it appears that Steam is now charging people for mods and the gamers are afraid that this will result in a plethora of crappy mods that people just threw together to make a quick buck. Thus, the negative reviews are not of the actual game itself, but rather this recent change from free DLC to paid DLC mods.

As one reviewer put it:

Once upon a time there was a game called The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, it was a very good game with a loving, creative community around it. That community was now ruined by the Pay4Mods plague…

There is some serious hate going on over the paid mods update.

Now, if you can handle paying for your mods or do not like downloading that many mods to start with – this is an excellent deal for the game. I price compared with all iterations of the game on Amazon Canada. The cheapest Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was for the Xbox 360 @ $17.91. The PC version retails for $28.52 @ Amazon Canada.

Trying to find cheaper, I visited best Buy Canada. They offer previously played versions for $14.99, but this is still nowhere near Steam’s price. Recycled editions on EB Games also retail for $14.99 each. Of course, these prices ignore shipping costs. Obviously, it is cheapest to buy the game on Steam’s platform with this sale.

If you want a bigger package, then you should pick up The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Legendary Edition for 66% off its retail price. Originally $43.99, the legendary edition is on sale from $14.95. EB Games has the recycled version of this game for $34.99. I also found other console versions for $38+ at Best Buy Canada and Amazon Canada. I am not sure you can get this game cheaper anywhere else.

This deal ends tomorrow, so scoop it up while you have the chance.

66% Off Age of Wonders III – Now $14.95 @ Steam

Posted by on April 14, 2015 at 8:31 PM

66% Off Age of Wonders III   Now $14.95 @ Steam

Age of Wonders is the first graphic based game I EVER played… over 10 years ago. Today, I am happy to bring you a sweet deal on the newest reiteration of the popular game. Age of Wonders III is on sale from 43.99 down to only $14.95.

To be honest, I played an Age of Wonders: Shadow Magic. It is not exactly part of the “I, II, III” series but it was a brilliant game in itself. If you have ever played Heroes of Might and Magic… you will be familiar with this type of game. Except, Age of Wonders is far more in depth than Heroes. It marries several different game types together: empire building, role playing, and warfare. I somewhat think of it as the unholy love child of Sid Meier’s Civilization and Heroes of Might and Magic.

The role-playing portion of the game is quite cool and very nostalgic. You choose from six RPG style leader classes:

  • Sorcerer
  • Theocrat
  • Rogue
  • Warlord
  • Archdruid
  • Dreadnought

You will find allies from within many species you are already quite familiar with. These species are classic in fantasy: Humans, High Elves, Dwarves, Orcs, Goblins, and Draconians.

The game is fairly ‘simple': explore the land, battle and gain treasure, create new settlements, use magic, and have a blast! As one reviewer says:

This game is absolutely incredible. It stays true to the style and feel of the previous games in the series, while also embracing some of the more modern elements in the 4X genre…. While this game is very easy to learn, and keeps most of the numbers and math pretty simple, there is an incredible amount of strategic depth to this game, and even after over 500 hours played, with 90% of that focusing on just *one* class, I am still learning new things.

Seriously, I am drooling. Though I am not sure if I have the time to be addicted to a new game, this one is damn tempting.

Now, I am the sort of person who cannot just get the base game. I am sort of addicted to downloadable content, so I would want to buy the DLCs for Age of Wonders III. Thankfully, the DLCs are also on sale – though not for as much. I could also buy the Age of Wonders III: Deluxe Edition, which comes with Dragon’s Throne Stand-Alone Scenario and the two-hour official soundtrack – it is also 66% off retail price.

Xbox One Just Dance 2015 – Only $15 @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on April 13, 2015 at 1:30 PM

Xbox One Just Dance 2015   Only $15 @ Amazon.ca

Well, Amazon Canada did it. They saw another company give a good deal on Just Dance 2015 for the Xbox One and they decided to blow the deal out of the water in their own special way. Just Dance 2015 for the Xbox One is now on sale from $49.99 down to $14.99. However, you will only receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Seriously, this blows all the previous deals we have found out of the water by $10. Oddly enough, only the Xbox One version is discounted whereas other versions cost over double this price. I also price compared the Xbox One version against other retailers to see if this is a trend. Here is what I found:

  • $24.99 @ Microsoft Canada
  • $49.99 @ Shop.ca
  • $49.99 @ Staples Canada
  • $49.99 @ Toys R Us Canada
  • $49.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $49.99 @ The Source Canada

Pretty much, everyone still has the game for full price except for Microsoft. I have no idea why, but Amazon just came along and said, “we can go lower” – totally blowing Microsoft’s deal out of the water. Hey, it happens!

Since it has happened, you need to buy this. If you purchased the Microsoft version, then I suggest trying to get a price adjustment or just returning your copy for a refund and purchasing this one instead.

While I like the idea of this game, I have never been fond of games that require me to spend an extra $100 or so on hardware just to play them. I assumed I would need to use the Kinect, but there is no additional hardware required to play Just Dance 2015. Rather, the game track movements and scores using your smart phone. You just need to download the Just Dance 2015 motion controller app. This app will work on iPhones with iOS 6+ and on Android 4+ phones as well.

With this version, online multi-player is back. Dance with the friends you made on your last vacation or relatives living overseas. Dancing is a great way to strengthen bonds and promote community! Kids especially love dancing and they can show off their moves in Just Dance 2015. I think it would be fun for kids and their cousins, who may live in a different part of Canada, to be able to dance together over this game. It sounds cool!

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Downloadable Titanfall Season Pass FREE @ Origin.com

Posted by on April 10, 2015 at 7:00 PM

Downloadable Titanfall Season Pass FREE @ Origin.com

Not too long ago, I posted about the free Titanfall Season Pass being given out to Xbox One and Xbox 360 users. Origin.com has jumped on board. They are giving away the Titanfall Season Pass free to PC gamers.

I assume this has about the same value – $25 – as the Xbox versions did. The season pass combined three previously individual DLCs into one pack. Each of the DLCs came with three new maps so the Titanfall Season Pass has nine new maps in total:

  • Expedition: War Games, Swampland, and Runoff
  • Frontier’s Edge: Dig Site, Export, and Haven
  • IMG Rising: Backwater, Zone 18, and Sandtrap

Now, you can actually get the Titanfall Season Pass even if you do not have the base game. Sure, you need the base game to play with the maps – but you can buy this pass and then wait for the game to go on sale for a price you are actually willing to pay. Then, when you get the game, you will also have all this sweet bonus content.

I would wait for one of Origin’s legendary game sales before parting with my money. I am not a big fan of this type of game, but we all know games drop in price the longer they are out. Pick up the downloadable content now and see just how cheap you can score the game for later. Who knows, maybe it will be a freebie one day!

A mighty thanks goes out to Mooser Jeff who mentioned on the Xbox thread that this freebie was available for the PC as well.

All of this is probably because Titanfall 2 was just announced recently. The company wants to re-garner interest in the title to build up anticipation for the next instalment. If you have played this game, then drop me a line and share your thoughts! I am always eager to learn about new games from our Moosers.

Microsoft Canada: Xbox One Just Dance 2015 Was $45 | Now $25 & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 9, 2015 at 8:19 PM

Microsoft Canada: Xbox One Just Dance 2015 Was $45 | Now $25 & Free Shipping

We haven’t seen a deal like this on Just Dance 2015 since the short term deal we blogged for Cyber Monday! Just Dance 2015 for the Xbox One is on sale from $44.99 down to $24.99 with free shipping.

Price comparisons ensue! This game would cost you a lot more money if you were to buy it at any other retailer right now. Just Dance 2015 retails for:

  • $47.95 @ Amazon Canada
  • $49.99 @ Shop.ca
  • $49.99 @ Staples Canada
  • $49.99 @ Toys R Us Canada
  • $49.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $49.99 @ The Source Canada

As you can see, none of the other traditional game retailers have this game on sale – and most certainly not for this price. In fact, Microsoft’s regular price is even cheaper than all the other sellers right now. EB Games is missing from this list, but their server is down (as of this post) so I could not compare.

There are some bonuses with the 2015 edition of the game you know and love. Just Dance now includes phone and tablet support for the game. You can download a free app on your smart phone or tablet that will let you play the game on the go!

Reviews for this title are mixed. most people thing they did not add enough to this new version of the game to make it worth buying. Others appreciate the attention paid to community, but hate how the game is not compatible with DLC. However, if you are new to the game or bought an Xbox One and need a few more games to play, this might just be a great pick. As one reviewer says:

So if you can set your cynicism aside and gather your three least inhibited friends (and maybe some of their kids or younger siblings), Just Dance 2015 can be one of the most fun games you’ll play this year.

I have wanted to try a game like this for ages. I love dancing – in the privacy of my own home – and think this would be a great way to burn off a few calories. As another reviewer on Metacritic said:

Just be forewarned—it took less than twenty minutes as a casual player to build up a sweat, so make sure you plan your wardrobe and company accordingly.

That sounds like an excellent way to burn off a few Easter chocolates, and maybe an entire Easter bunny over a weekend.

Best Buy Canada: 2 for $50 on Select Xbox One Games

Posted by on April 7, 2015 at 9:23 PM

Best Buy Canada: 2 for $50 on Select Xbox One Games

Best Buy Canada is offering two select Xbox One games for just $50. These games regularly retail for $39.99 each – so you are saving around $30 with this deal. As you are buying two games for $50, your order will also qualify for free shipping.

Select game titles include:

  • Ryse: Son of Rome (Xbox One)
  • Forza Motorsport 5 Game Of The Year (Xbox One)
  • Sunset Overdrive (Xbox One)
  • Forza 5 (Xbox One)
  • Dead Rising 3 (Xbox One)

While this looks like a good deal – I did some careful price comparing with Walmart and with Amazon Canada to see what they charger per game.

Walmart Canada:

  • Ryse: Son of Rome (Xbox One) - $39.96
  • Forza Motorsport 5 Game Of The Year (Xbox One) - $39.96
  • Sunset Overdrive (Xbox One) – $64.96
  • Forza 5 (Xbox One) – not stocked
  • Dead Rising 3 (Xbox One) – $39.96 (OOS)

Amazon Canada:

  • Ryse: Son of Rome (Xbox One) - $34.89
  • Forza Motorsport 5 Game Of The Year (Xbox One) - $39.99
  • Sunset Overdrive (Xbox One) – $39.99
  • Forza 5 (Xbox One) – $39.99
  • Dead Rising 3 (Xbox One) – $28.99

With this promotion from Best Buy, each game comes down to $25, which certainly bests any of the prices at Walmart and Amazon right now. Three previously played versions are also included in the offer. However, I would only select them at last resort – if the regular version were sold out – as they are certainly worth less money.

I know zip about these games; therefore, I suggest reading some comments on Best Buy. I checked out the reviews on Sunset Overdrive and found everyone (except one guy) really loved the game. Most gamers were saying the person who gave the game one star obviously had not played the game themselves. For the three games that have ratings; Sunset Overdrive has a 4/5 star rating, Forza 5 has a 5/5 star rating, and Dead Rising 3 Also has a 5/5 star rating.

With the recent release of Furious 7, I really have the itch to play another racing game. Boxing and racing games used to be my standby entertainment when I was at the movie theatre too early. I really enjoyed the car racing games as well as the motorcycle racing games. I would pick up Forza Motorsport 5 – game of the Year edition for sure!

I have no idea when this promotion ends so please purchase sooner rather than risk missing out.

PlayStation Store: Six Free Games for the PS4, PS3, & PS Vita with PS Plus

PlayStation Store: Six Free Games for the PS4, PS3, & PS Vita with PS Plus

Do you like free? I like free! This month, PlayStation store is offering free games for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and the PS Vita! We are not talking one lone game here… there are six free games to choose from in the PlayStation store when you have a PS Plus membership. Why choose at all, you might as well get all of them when they are free!

Let us lay the games out per console. This deal gives you three free games for the PS4; this is a great deal as the PS4 console is still fairly new. Tower of Guns, Never Alone, and Aaru’s Awakening are all free for the PS4 this month. These games are worth $14.99 each, so pick up all four and save $44.97.

Like the PS4, owners of a PS3 qualify for three free games. Pick up Dishonored, Aaru’s Awakening, and Tower of Guns for free. Dishonoured is worth $19.99, Aaru’s Awakening is worth $14.99, and Tower of Guns is worth $14.99. Together, you receive $49.97 worth in free games.

The PS Vita offers a different set of games – but this time there are only two freebies. Killzone Mercenary retails for $35.99 and MonsterBag retails for $9.99. Together, you save $45.98.

These free games are all available for individuals who have a PS Plus membership. Three months of a PS Plus membership costs $17.99 US and a full 12 months costs $49.99 US. This may seem like a fair bit of change to throw at the Sony; however, the free game benefits far outweigh the money you pay. Just this month alone you would receive between $45 – $50 CDN worth of games. If you consider that value of freebies each month for the length of your membership – the value really adds up.

Of course, it is best if they are games you want to play. Dishonoured and Killzone Mercenary are probably the favourites of this month’s freebie list. They also tend to be the more expensive games. One happy PS Plus member commented on the Sony website:

Never Alone, nice. Never heard of Aaru’s Awakening. Seems interesting. Might give it a shot. Glad to see Dishonored being offered. It’s a great game.

Another member said:

Will absolutely be getting killzone mercenary for my vita. Now just need to find time to play it. Lol

I think that is why I have never bought a PS Plus membership – when would I find the time to play all these fantastic games?

EB Games Trade In Deals   Up to $70 in Credit

EB Games has three special trade-in deals for PS4, XB1, XB360, PS3, PSV, WiiU, and 3DS games. All these deals will make your games worth more money towards other games or in credit.

There are three offers on right now. First of all, the trade more get more offer is one of EB Games’ best deals. With this offer, the more games you trade in the more bonus credit you will receive. Here are the three tiers:

  • Trade in 3 games, Get 10$ extra in-store credit
  • Trade in 5 games, Get 20$ extra in-store credit
  • Trade in 7 or more games, Get 30$ extra in-store credit

Each of these games has to have a trade in value of $3 or more. Just throwing this out there, but if you trade in seven games worth $3 each, usually you would get $21 credit. With this promo, you will receive $51 instead. This is really the best

Now, if you are trading in games with individual trade credit of $10 or more, then you may wish to use the following promotion. Trade in 3 games worth $10 or more to receive $70 credit towards the following game titles:

  • Bloodborne
  • Mortal Kombat X PS4/XB1
  • Project Cars

Above, I have linked to the specific games eligible for this promotion. It is a pretty extensive and varies by title and console.

Now, there is a third offer and this cannot be combined with any other offer. Receive an extra 30% in-store trade credit when you trade in your games towards the pre-order or purchase of the following titles:

  • Dark Souls 2 Scholar of the First Sin
  • Xenoblade Chronicles 3DS
  • MLB 15: The Show
  • Project Cars
  • Mortal Kombat X PS4/XB1
  • Bloodborne

As you can imagine, this is an in store only deal. With spring here, now is a great time to clear out your old games and make room for new titles. In fact, I have a few games sitting around that I never play. Unless it is a new title, it is pretty hard to resell games for any decent amount of money so this trade in offer is pretty good. I can reinvest that money into one game I want and really offset or eliminate my cost.
