LeapFrog Canada Promo Code: 25% Off All Apps

Entertain your little ones with new games as you can save 25% off all apps at Leapfrog right now, including those already on sale!

Click here to get apps @ Leapfrog.com now

  • Coupon Code: LEAPSGIANT
  • Discount: 25% off apps
  • Expiry: 29th September 2014

My little is nowhere near being at the stage of being able to use a tablet and much less the Leapfrog one but I already know that it’s one of those purchases we will most definitely be making for its educational value. There are tons of educational apps to help your little one to learn the alphabet, to count, to spell and many other highly useful skills.

I totally grew up watching The Magic School Bus every once in a while when I was younger and there is one such themed app as well! Already on sale for $20.99 (reg. $29.99), you can get The Magic School Bus Oceans app for just $15.74, which is close to 50% off! Geared towards 5-8 year old, it’s a learning game focused on science that helps little ones learn how to sort and classify various ocean animals. With more than 100 facts about the sea world, it’s sure to not only be highly educational, but also entertain your little ones while you hopefully get a bit of time for yourself! LeapFrog Canada Promo Code: 25% Off All Apps

Another one that I would totally love for my little one to immerse herself in if she was old enough would be the Launch Pad to Space for 5-8 year olds as well. It comes down to just $15 from a sale price of $20 (reg. $25). It’s an interactive storybook that covers the stars, planets and our Milky Way galaxy. What’s cool about this app is that it also helps kids strengthen their reading skills through three reading levels and a visual dictionary.

Those are the two games that immediately caught my attention and they just so happened to be for the same age group, but the apps geared towards the youngest age is actually as low as 2 years old, like the Sing Along Read Along video app for 2-6 year olds. Since it’s $5, you can get it for $3.75 and it helps kids learn about vowels and build confidence.

Shipping is free on orders over $40, but you can also choose to download the apps directly onto a Leapfrog tablet as well.

All Leapfrog coupon codes may all be found on the Bargainmoose forum as soon as they are released.

GameFly Digital: Download Battlefield 4 Only $12.74 (was $29.99) with Coupon Code

Posted by on September 25, 2014 at 9:00 PM

GameFly Digital: Download Battlefield 4 Only $12.74 (was $29.99) with Coupon Code

Greetings fellow gamers! Are you looking for a great deal on a newer game? Currently, the digital download of Battlefield 4 is on sale at GameFly for 50% off the original price of $29.99. However, when you use the following coupon code, you can get an extra 15% off the game bringing it down to just $12.74 USD.

Click here to download Battlefield 4 @ Gamefly Digital now

  • Coupon Code: SEP15OFF
  • Discount: 15% off games
  • Expiry: Unknown

This title installs and requires EA Origin to play.

I cannot price compare the download with Steam, as Steam frankly does not have the game. However, price comparisons are always a tricky thing when you are comparing across platforms. If you want to price compare to the console version, a quick rundown on Amazon will show you the general going price:

  • Battlefield 4 – PlayStation 4 – $47.32
  • Battlefield 4 – Xbox One – $29.94
  • Battlefield 4 – Xbox 360 – $16.11
  • Battlefield 4 – PlayStation 3 – $14.94

Compared to the current console prices (top two), this is a very good price and it is a fair price compared to older consoles.

Note: a PlayStation Plus subscription will be required to play PlayStation 4 titles online. As online play is at the heart and soul of Battlefield 4, consider than an extra $50 out of your pocket a year that console players have to pay – and not PC gamers. Of course, anyone using an Xbox is well aware of the extra yearly fees. Thus, your best bet is to either buy the PC version and rock out while playing with your friends online or stick with the PS3 version (if you have a PS3), which does not charge for online gaming – yet. With the PC version you pay a one-time fee (for the game), and do not have ongoing costs associated with a game you have already paid for.

If you are having flashbacks to the release of Battlefield, have no fear as this reviewer says:

The game had a few hiccups at launch but things have now been resolved and the game is an amazing experience.

The awesomeness of Battlefield is generally agreed upon. It is the ultimate war game as you exert your influence upon your environment and lay siege from land, air, or water by means of great firepower. The visuals are striking and the audio is incredible. If you love war games, this game will not disappoint. At this price, it is certainly worth picking up.

For the coupon above and any future Gamefly coupon codes we may find, visit the forum.

GreenMan Gaming: Free Welcome Pack (4 Games + 4 Eve Add-On Packs + 23% Voucher)

Posted by on September 24, 2014 at 3:30 PM

GreenMan Gaming: Free Welcome Pack (4 Games + 4 Eve Add On Packs + 23% Voucher)

Free is great isn’t it? With GreenMan Gaming’s welcome pack, you can get 4 free games, 4 add-on packs for Eve Online and a voucher for 25% off! Keep reading to find out how you can score one for yourself now.

Usually priced at $42.89 and with an actual value of $63.88, the welcome pack includes:

If you’re not already a member of GreenMan Gaming, then simply create an account and subscribe to their newsletter. A unique GreenMan Gaming coupon code will then be e-mailed to you within 72 hours. Once you receive the code, you need to add the welcome pack to your shopping basket and use the code at checkout to get the freebies along with the voucher.

If you are a member, then you can only get the welcome pack with pre-purchase of any one of the following games:

Don’t quote me on this but you could also just use an alternative e-mail to subscribe to GreenMan Gaming’s newsletter as if you’re a new member and get your welcome pack for free without the purchase of the games above.

I’m definitely pretty excited to give Eve Online a try as it’s an MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) set in space thousands of years in the future. Although it resembles World of Warcraft in that players can interact with others around the world, it’s also very different because on top of requiring no grinding through levels, Eve also offers extensive freedom in how you play and what you do. Forget about running around low-level zone killing mobs and levelling up, in Eve, the goal is to acquire power, whether militarily, politically, etc. Unlike WoW, everyone also plays on the same server, which is certainly a neat feature as well.

The 23% discount is also pretty cool, though you can also try using the GreenMan coupon code that is currently on our forum to save 25% off instead. It’s only valid on select games, so you’re going to have to try it at checkout to see if its works.

Steam Powered: 75% Off Tripwire Bundle Now $24.99 ($188.77 Value)

Posted by on September 24, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Steam Powered: 75% Off Tripwire Bundle Now $24.99 ($188.77 Value)

Steam Powered has an awesome mid-week deal for all you gamers out there. Pick up the Tripwire Interactive Bundle (March 2014 edition) for just $24.99, originally $99.99.

The bundle has an actual value of $188.77 if you were to buy the games and packs separately right now at their going rates (including current sales prices). Take out the sale prices – price the games at their regular full price – and this bundle would be worth $218.77.

The bundle includes the following games:

You get six games with this bundle with a total value of $90 retails. Then you get a positive steam load of Character packs and Weapon packs for Killing Floor. You seriously get set up with that game. I counted 12 character packs and 6 weapon packs ranging in price from $4.99 to $7.99 apiece. That is a lot of sweet DLC for your new Killing Floor game. It is also what gives this bundle such high value.

Just for a little price comparison, the Tripwire Bundle that you are picking up for only $24.99 includes the entire Killing Floor Bundle – the game plus 18 DLCs. The Killing Floor Bundle as a stand-alone package retails for $49.99 USD on Steam Powered right now. You get that bundle for half price, essentially, and then five extra games on top of it. Are you dancing for joy yet?

I have never played any of these games before, so I am not the best to make any suggestions as to what one to play first, or which character totally rocks. However, these games all rank very well on Metascore with the primary attraction, Killing Floor, receiving a 71/100 rating. Out of the group, Rising Storm has the highest Metascore at 82/100 – a very solid score.

I seriously have no idea why you would not buy this if you like any of these games. Seriously, it is $25. What are you waiting for? Do you have a friend that likes this kind of games? Good. Buy this bundle and gift it to him/her and you will be most popular friend for a good while! This bundle makes an amazing gift for you or for others.

All prices are in USD.

Steam Powered: 75% Off Most Warner Brothers Games

Posted by on September 21, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Steam Powered: 75% Off Most Warner Brothers Games

There is a big sale going on at Steam right now and my entire household is drooling over it as I type. Receive 75% off most Warner Brothers games on Steam. Be quick! This offer ends tomorrow.

My husband and I are both games. We excel at different types of games (I beat the crap out of things, he is an excellent strategist) yet, we both enjoy playing games with fighting and strategy. Recently, my husband has been positively addicted to Injustice: Gods Among Us on his tablet. He loves to build up the DC characters (both heroes and villains), equip them with gear, level up their abilities, and battle them. However, he calls me ‘the master’ because I totally kick ass whenever I do a battle for him, as it is my forte. Right now, Steam has Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition on sale for just $7.49, down from $29.99 US. The ultimate edition would totally kick ass and I know my husband really wants this game. Maybe I shall buy it as a present!

I excel at fighter style games even though I primarily play strategy games – funny isn’t it? Maybe it comes from playing fight style games in the arcades when I was supposed to be doing laundry. Either way, get me behind a controller playing something like Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition and my competitive side kicks in. Mortal Kombat is a legend in fighting style games, and is probably one of the first games I ever played. The action if fierce and you have a good selection of characters. Originally $19.99 US, this game is now on sale for $4.99 US.

Now, for something a little less mature. I have a secret deep well of love for Scooby-Doo. Recently when Amazon Canada has The Complete Scooby-Doo: Where Are You? Collection on sale, I had to buy it. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that I am drooling over the Scooby Doo! & Looney Tunes Cartoon Universe: Adventure which lets me help Scooby, Shaggy and the rest of the Mystery Machine Gang solve a mystery! You can also solve a Loony Tunes mystery, but I am really only interested in the Scooby Doo part. Originally $19.99, the game is now on sale for $4.99 US.

There are many Warner Brothers titles included in this same including their legendary LEGO series. You must check this out!

Origin.com Freebie: Bejeweled 3 Free Download (PC/ Mac)

Posted by on September 17, 2014 at 12:00 AM

Origin.com Freebie: Bejeweled 3 Free Download (PC/ Mac)

Hi, my name is Margarita and I used to be a Bejeweled addict and now, much to my horror, Origin is offering Bejeweled 3 absolutely free for PC or Mac download. Its usual price is of $4.99, so it’s definitely worth a download for those days of boredom… or even snowstorm days up ahead. To get it, just click on the link below and then select “on the house” from the “free games” menu.

First of all, if you’re not already registered for Origin, you’re going to get an account first but it only takes a minute tops and is absolutely free as well. Plus, by signing up now, you won’t have to worry about creating an account the next time we tell you about an awesome freebie at Origin.

Once you have registered for an account, you’re also going to need Origin to download this game, but once again, it’s free and takes yet another minute (unless you’re one of lucky ones with 200 Mbps internet, then it might take you less than 10 seconds for the whole process Origin.com Freebie: Bejeweled 3 Free Download (PC/ Mac) ).

Having recently switched computer, I had to re-download Origin to check out this offer for myself and I discovered that for those of you who already have it downloaded, can also get this freebie directly through their program as well. Simply select the “on the house” option from the “free games” category in the main menu. It only requires 246 MB.

Once you launch the game, a lovely gruff voice welcomes you to Bejeweled 3 and that’s when the fun commences. You are given the choice between four levels: classic. zen, lightning or quest. Given that I’m rather rusty as I haven’t played in a couple of years, I chose the quest and let’s just say that it didn’t take very long for me to hear the dreaded two words: “game over” as my butterflies were eaten by the spiders. Just that detail alone goes to show how much this game has changed as there certainly weren’t any quests when I played it! It’s great fun though and an amazing time killer, so I definitely recommend it, especially for all of you students out there with boring professors. Origin.com Freebie: Bejeweled 3 Free Download (PC/ Mac)

Lastly, keep in mind that once this deal expires towards the end of the month of October, you can check out other “on the house” offers from Origin as every so often, full versions of a select games are released at absolutely no cost but the catch is that they can also end the deal at any moment, so be sure to download it right away.

Humble Bundle Freebie: Get Receiver Game for Free TODAY (HOT!)

Posted by on September 15, 2014 at 6:46 PM

Humble Bundle Freebie: Get Receiver Game for Free TODAY (HOT!)

Humble Bumble has a sweet little freebie for all you gamers out there. Request your free copy of Receiver from Humble Bundle today.

I signed up for the free games just to test it out for you guys. You are emailed a link through which you redeem the code via Steam. Humble Bundle will need to connect to Steam via your browser to redeem the code. This was a real pain for me because it took forever for me to get the darn caption right (I suck at captions). Once you are emailed a link for Receiver, you can then refresh and click the gift checkbox to give a free copy to a friend as well. So not only do you get a free game, you can also give it to a friend as well.

The Steam key you receive must be redeemed before the 29th of September 2014 @ 10AM PT or else it will be lost to Davey Jones’ locker.

As mentioned above, this is a Steam redemption, so you will need the Steam platform to play this game. This game is compatible with Mac, Linux, and Windows operating systems. Receiver retails for $4.99 US so you are getting nice value for no cost.

The game is a single player action shooter without turning you into an indestructible here. Here are a couple cool reviews:

Receiver didn’t cast me as some nigh-invincible mass of regenerating muscle. The end result, then, was that I felt exactly how I’d expect Real Me would in a combat situation involving live ammo.
– Rock Paper Shotgun

and:

Successfully reloading a gun for the first time through sheer muscle memory is easily one of the greatest feelings in gaming.
8.5/10 – Destructoid

So pick this game up before your time runs out. As of now, you have just over 18 hours left to request your free copy of Receiver.

BigBox Outlet Store: Extra 50% Off All Skylanders – Starting @ $3.30!

Posted by on September 14, 2014 at 4:30 PM

BigBox Outlet Store: Extra 50% Off All Skylanders   Starting @ $3.30!

Big Box Outlet Store (currently transitioning from being known as Pricematters) is offering an extra 50% off all Skylander products they have in stock. Most of these are open box items so they have already been discounted from what you would see at a regular store.

Individual characters are just $3.30 each. You can pick up the following individual characters:

There are also four triple packs you can choose from. Each triple pack is only $7.15, which works out to approximately $2.38 per character. Which of these triple packs are you going to get?

All of these are open box and that is why they are so discounted. I tried to price compare with a regular retailer to see how much you are saving. At Best Buy, Skylanders Swap Force Triple Packs retail for $25.99 including the one with Gill Grunt (that I have linked to). Individual characters retail for $9.99 at Best Buy and many other retailers. At the Big Box Outlet store, you are getting them for 1/3rd their retail price.  These prices are really great. Though some people may shy away from open box items, I figure that I am going to open the box anyway so why not save some extra money by buying those items?

I have never played Skylanders, but it sounds like my kind of game. I love all the fun little figurines that are both collectable and that you use to play the game as well. While I am not big on extra game purchases, I could handle paying a few dollars for each new character I wanted.

There are limited quantities available. The Big Box Store offers free shipping on orders of $50 or more. Underneath that minimum, the cost of shipping depends on where you are shipping. This deal is only available online.

If you want to get started with Skylanders, check out the Starter Kit deal that Ivan posted about here.

Google Play Store Freebies: Get Batman Arkham Origins & Assassin’s Creed Pirates For Free (Reg. $5 Each)

Posted by on September 10, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Google Play Store Freebies: Get Batman Arkham Origins & Assassins Creed Pirates For Free (Reg. $5 Each)

Looking for fun new games to play on your Android device? Then check out Batman Arkham Origins and Assassin’s Creed Pirates as both of these are free for a limited time on the Google Play Store. They usually cost $4.99 each to download.

Click here to download Batman Arkham Origins @ Play.Google.com now

Click here to download Assassin’s Creed Pirates @ Play.Google.com now

For all of you iOS users, don’t despair! Although there is no word on how long it has been free, looking around the App Store on my iPhone, I found that both of these are also currently free there as well with loads of reviewers posting how much they love both. In fact, I gave both games a whirl on my iPhone and  I have to say that I was the most impressed with the graphics and smoothness of the Batman game. For some reason, I initially thought that the Batman game would be more like The Simpson’s Tapped Out but it’s actually very different. Instead, you need to complete missions around Gotham City and luckily, there is a handy tutorial to teach you just how to do that. This is definitely the perfect game for any Batman fan and in fact, when I showed my hubby the game, he said: “this is pretty cool!”

It’s cool, indeed, especially since the next Batman game won’t be coming out until 2015, so at least in the meantime, there is something to keep you Batman fans appeased. Google Play Store Freebies: Get Batman Arkham Origins & Assassins Creed Pirates For Free (Reg. $5 Each)

Assassin’s Creed Pirates is slightly different but the concept is similar. It seems to me like although Batman Arkham Origins can easily be played on a phone, especially one as small as the iPhone, Assassin’s Creed, on the other hand, would be better suited on a tablet. When I first launched the game, it seemed very two dimensional but the very first task throws you right in the midst of the ocean and asks you to navigate a ship. The graphics definitely impressed me the most as I certainly didn’t expect as many details as there was in the scenery. One of the biggest differences between the PlayStation 4 and the third console was the level of details, such as random leaves rolling around, more pronounced waves in the ocean and in fact, I noticed the same kind of details when playing this game on my phone.

Both are definitely worth a download, especially since they’re free. Be sure to let us know in the comments section which game is your favourite!

GOG: 6th Birthday Sale   Save Up To 80% On Select PC Games (Expired)

We love game sales, Bargainmoosers – that’s why we always try to alert you all about the latest and greatest ways for you to save your hard earned cash! For one day only, you can save up to 80% on a decent selection of games at GOG. Though many of these are classic titles, such as Rayman 2 ($1.99 – was $5.99) and Rollercoaster Tycoon Deluxe ($1.99 - was $5.99), it doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun with them! In fact, I have a friend that still crafts his own roller coasters in Rollercoaster Tycoon – it can be that addicting!

Click here to check out this deal @ GOG now

Feel free to click the link above to see the full selection of games that you can save on at GOG. You simply choose the game(s) that you want, and after confirming your payment option, you’ll download the title(s) directly, so you’ll be able to indulge in some gaming soon afterwards! Some of the games that you can choose from include the following:

You can check out the full selection of games to choose from by clicking here.

There are some very familiar titles in this sale, along with some newer games like Witcher 2. I remember first playing Alone in The Dark on my friend’s computer back in the early nineties (back when only a certain segment of the population owned a computer) – it had 3D characters back when that was a rarity, and it was spooky for its time! Even though the characters look like a bunch of polygonal shapes nowadays, the game still has some charm (especially with its haunting soundtrack).

You can’t go wrong with the early Rayman games, either. They’re exceptionally fun platform games!

You can save a decent amount of money if you pick up certain games during this limited time promotion. Witcher 2 currently sells for $22 on Amazon, and it costs $19.99 on Steam. Listed below is a brief review of Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings from a satisfied Amazon customer:

From ground up this game is unreal. Story is amazing, voice over are very well done and pure eye candy graphics. Much better then Dragon Age 2 for options in the game and overall design. This is a must for a RPG gamer!

This deal expires on September 11th, so take advantage of these discounts while they’re still available. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Humble Bundle: The Lego Movie Videogame PC Was $30 | Now $7.49 (HOT!) (Expired)

Posted by on September 9, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Humble Bundle: The Lego Movie Videogame PC Was $30 | Now $7.49 (HOT!) (Expired)

Have you seen the Lego Movie that was released at the beginning of the year? Well… are you a fan of the Lego video games? These games are wildly popular, and have been so for a number of years. Licensed with recognizable characters such as Batman and Indiana Jones, the Lego video games are a blast to play. The Lego Movie Videogame is no exception! Now, you can take advantage of a great limited time offer from Humble Bundle, where you can download The Lego Movie Videogame for the PC for just $7.49 – it usually costs $29.99!

If you ask several people what they thought of the Lego Movie, chances are you’ll hear some mixed reviews. One thing to remember is that the film was geared towards children, and many of them seemed to love it. Merchandise flew off the shelves before the movie even came out, and at this time, you can get the Blu Ray or DVD of The Lego Movie to watch in the comfort of your own home.

In regards to the Lego Movie Videogame, casual and expert gamers should be able to enjoy this adaptation of the film. I just started playing the Lego video game series last year when I tried out Lego Marvel Superheroes for the Nintendo 3DS, and I was hooked! Since then, I’ve had some good times playing Lego Batman 2, Lego Indiana Jones, and even Lego Pirates Of The Caribbean.

The PC version of this game currently costs $29.99 on Steam, and $28.99 at Costco (you’d also need to have a Costco membership). Critics have also shared some good reviews for The Lego Movie Videogame. Listed below is a review from GRYOnline.pl:

The mechanics are well-known, there’s lots of things to do and find, but you’ll find almost no novelties – if you’ve given up on the series, you won’t come back. If you simply can’t get enough of LEGOs, then buy it. But watch the movie first – you’ll avoid spoilers.

If you want to have some fun on your computer for fewer than ten bucks, then The Lego Movie Videogame should keep you satisfied. This deal expires on September 10, so get this while it’s still available. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Steam Powered: Up to 90% Off Games

Steam Powered: Up to 90% Off Games

I am very impressed with Steam’s Weeklong Deals sale this week. With up to 90% off games, you really have no reason to feel bored or be looking for something to do. Because darling, we have it all right here for you at prices that will make your heart skip a beat.

A little reminder folks: all prices quoted are in USD. All games are Steam downloads so nary a word about shipping is needed.

I like lists, so let us do this simply. Here are the games in the top discount tier on Steam this week:

Get 90% Off:

This is just the games on sale for 90% off; there is a plethora of games for 80% off, 75% off, as well as 50% and other discounts. It is a massive sale for game lovers and you must check it out.

Personally, I am most interested in the two Book of Unwritten Tales games. They combine adventure RPGs with puzzle games, which happen to be two of my favourite things. The first game has over 150 puzzles to solve and over 300 items you can find and use throughout the game. There is also humorous dialog and fun characters. One gaming website reviewed the game saying:

Never in the past decade we’ve seen such a well-built comedy/ fantasy adventure game, filled to the brim with great narration, sense of purpose and feelings of joy and despair. An absolute must have for every “adventurer”. 9.5/10 – GameOver

Watching the videos for this and The Critter Chronicles is just hilarious. The one where the critter gets the penguin drunk so it aggravates the one guard so he falls in the hole in the ice so that the critter’s friend/master can join the army is pretty awesome. Seriously, all that happened in like one minute. These are pretty awesome point and click RPGs that you just need to pick up for only a couple dollars each.

At only 50% off, I ran across BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger now $4.99 (was $9.99). I have a different BlazBlue for the PS3 and watching the trailer for this one totally made me want to play it again. Anyone else play this game?

Toys R Us Canada:  40% Of All $24.99 Hasbro Board Games

Toys R Us Canada has a great deal on right now that is perfect for the cooler nights and weekends we will be having in the fall.  Save 40% on Hasbro board games that are $24.99 or more for a limited time only.

Basically, any Hasbro board game that is priced $24.99 or more will get discounted 40% off at the checkout. Almost all the the games in this section are $24.99, so the prices of them will all drop to just $14.97.

They have a pretty good variety with over 20 games available for this deal. This is the perfect sale for a family games night. They have classics like Monopoly, Risk, Operation, Life, Jenga and many more, along with some great new ones. The age range is from toddlers all the way up to adults, so there is something for everyone.

You do have the chance to save even more money if you buy a few different games. I did a screen shot for you below with my order.

Toys R Us Canada:  40% Of All $24.99 Hasbro Board Games

The games are already 40% off, but if you add three games to your cart, you will save an additional 20% on the them. They also have a deal on right now that will get you free shipping when you spend $25 or more on select items (which include all of these games). That means, you will save 40%, then an additional 20%, and get free shipping! My total for three games was just $35.94 when the regular price for all three should have been $86.17 with the cost of shipping. Those are some pretty incredible savings!

Like I mentioned above, for a limited time only, you can get free shipping on most orders of $25 or more.

Newegg.ca: Free Games & Software With Processor Purchase ($99 Value)

Newegg.ca: Free Games & Software With Processor Purchase ($99 Value)

Newegg Canada is offering a bundle of software and games free when you purchase select fourth generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processors.

No coupon code is necessary; the bundle is included with your purchase as shown.

Your bundle full of freebies includes the following:

  • Grid Autosport
  • Shadowrun Returns
  • Star Chart
  • McAfee LiveSafe

All of the above games/software are digital downloads from my understanding. You will be given redemption codes to download all the above games and software.

I wasn’t so sure about the value attributed to this bundle so I did some snooping around. The easiest place to start was with the McAfee LiveSafe software. McAfee themselves sells this for $79.99 and I found it as cheap as $64.55 at Amazon.ca. As for the games, here is what I found:

Even with Star Chart being a free app for Windows 8 (not sure why it is included in this bundle), this bundle still calculates in at well over the $99 declared value. I think that Star Chart may only be available on Windows 8 (not Windows 7 if you are planning to run it). However, it is compatible with iOS and Android systems. The redemption code might cover them, I do not know.

So what is your best deal? The cheaper the processor, then the better the freebie value against the original product. Thus, I would suggest looking at the Intel Core i5-4430 Haswell Quad-Core 3.0GHz LGA 1150 84W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646I54430 for $189.99.

Now, I was thinking that this processor is a great deal already because you are receiving approximately $130 worth of games and software on top of it, the way I calculate things. However, I also did some price comparing just to make sure they had not inflated the price of the processor to compensate. The BX80646I54430 processor at NCIX costs $199.99 + shipping and at Direct Canada, it costs $201.82 + shipping. Therefore, you are not only receiving an awesome bundle of freebies, you are also receiving a good deal on the initial product.

Shipping for this bundle should be just $4.99. There are also many other processors to choose from if you need something a bit more powerful. There are a couple others coming in under $200 if you are under a budget, and they go up to much higher prices for the more advanced models.

Origin.com Freebie: Try Battlefield 4 Free For 1 Full Week!

Origin.com Freebie: Try Battlefield 4 Free For 1 Full Week!

Origin Game Time is back and this time it’s better and bigger! Last time, gamers were given access to the full version of Titanfall free for two days (48 hours) but this time, Battlefield 4 can be yours to play for free for an entire week, which as Origin so convincingly put it, that’s 168 hours of non-stop gaming! Keep in mind that it’s the PC version of the game.

Free is always awesome but the fact that you can play Battlefield 4 for a whole week is even better, especially since if after your 168 hours are up, you decide to purchase the game, then you won’t lose any progress that you have made thus far. The game is currently on sale for $26.39 (reg. $39.99) but there is no word on whether or not the price will stay the same in a week.

Battlefield 4 is essentially a first-person shooter game and although it was initially filled with countless bugs and glitches upon its release in January 2014, the game has since been fixed with numerous patches and in fact, here’s a review I found on Amazon about it:

Graphics are amazing. Multiplayer is what it’s all about. Campaign pretty much teaches you all weapons and vehicles so don’t expect much more than that but there are parts that made me say to myself “Wow, That’s Awesome”.

To get the game, you’re going to need an Origin account, which is free to have. Simply sign up, confirm your e-mail and that’s it! Then, add the game to your game library and wait for it to download. This will depend on your internet speed but if you have time, then be sure to leave a comment to let us know that you’re getting the game! The great part is that you also don’t need to worry about losing any game time while you wait for the game to download as your time won’t start until the time that you launch the game.

Plus, if you don’t see yourself playing it in the upcoming days, then you can wait until the very last day as you will still get a full week to play the game. Just maybe don’t wait until the very last minute!

Have you ever played Battlefield 4 or any of the previous instalments? What did you think?
