Get the Android App Inferno 2 for Free Today @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Get the Android App Inferno 2 for Free Today @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Inferno 2 is a great app for Android devices if you enjoy action-RPG games. While Inferno 2 would have normally cost you $3.35, today you can download it through the Amazon Canada App store for free. To get started, download the Amazon.ca App Store to your Android device and then follow the link below to get Inferno 2 for free.

This fun, fast paced shooter game has over 80 levels of atmospheric awesomeness. The touch controls are able to be customized, although I hear they are a little too responsive for most people’s liking. I am sure you will be able to get used to the controls – if not, you can also use a Bluetooth controller.

Inferno 2 brings all-new special level types and goals to your fingertips. There are tons of new secrets to discover since the original Inferno, and since this game is free today, you really have no excuse to not give it a chance. There are three different difficulty levels, you can change it up at any time throughout the game. I am personally a wimp when it comes to shooter games, so I would have to go with the easy setting. There are also all-new weapons and upgrades in the Inferno 2 game.

Amazon.ca customers have left great reviews for this game. Since this game is now free instead of $3, why not give it a shot? Here is one of the Amazon Canada reviews on Inferno 2 for Android devices:

Awesome game, and fun to play. The controls are a little harder to get use to than on the controller. I have Stardust on PlayStation 3 and this game is similar to that. I love them both. Inferno 2 is more of a map style game though, compared to Stardust.

Unfortunately if you are using an Apple device, you will still have to pay $2.99 for this game in the Apple iTunes store. There is mild cartoon or fantasy violence in this game, so keep that in mind when choosing to download it. For that reason, Inferno 2 is rated for ages 9 and up.

After watching the video of this game on Amazon.ca, I feel like going to an arcade. If I had an Android device, I could get the arcade feeling right at my fingertips. The sound effects do remind me of the game Astroids though, how about you?

Origin: Up to 75% Off Games New Year Sale

Posted by on December 28, 2014 at 12:49 PM

Origin: Up to 75% Off Games New Year Sale

Origin has an up to 75% off New Year’s sale on games you just need for your PC. If you are in the market for some new games, then this is a sale you will not want to miss.

There are tons of titles in the sale so I really cannot give you a list of all the games. So really, you need to sort through the sale games yourself and find the ones that suit your own tastes. Here are some cool bundles:

Mass Effect Trilogy – Was $29.99 | Now $14.99

For three games, you are really paying peanuts. Enjoy over 75 hours of content with all three Mass Effect games (includes Mass Effect Pinnacle Station and Bring Down the Sky). This little bundle is quite the deal when each game originally retailed for more than the bundle’s price.

PopCap Hero Bundle – Was $9.99 | Now $4.99

Three games for $5, how can you say no? This PopCap bundle includes Bejeweled, Peggle, and Plants vs. Zombies. I have never played Peggle, but the other two games are fun and highly addictive.

There are also plenty of individual games on sale. I was looking at the $10 and under section for these gems.

I have never played any of these games, but there are some titles in there for 75% off, which is a good deal. I love the image on the cover of Command & Conquer – if I was to buy a game based upon cover alone (who doesn’t do that once in a while), I would purchase that game.

Some newer games are on sale as well. Dragon Age: Inquisition was $59.99, and is now on sale for $39.99. The massive The Sims 4 Digital Deluxe edition was $69.99, and is now on sale for $46.89. The game features bonus content including a new ghosts feature where your Sims do not really die, they can come back as spectres to haunt and frolic with the locals.

Pick out a new game and waste a few evenings having fun in a different world.

PlayStation End Of Year Flash Sale: Up To 75% Off Select PS4, PS3 & PS Vita Games

Posted by on December 24, 2014 at 8:30 PM

PlayStation End Of Year Flash Sale: Up To 75% Off Select PS4, PS3 & PS Vita Games

Already bored by the holidays? Then head over to the PlayStation Network because for a couple of days, you can save up to 75% off select games for either the PS3, PS4 or PS Vita.

Once you click over to the PlayStation site, you will see a list of all the games on sale, but here are just some of the top ones:

  • PS3 Assassin’s Creed Rogue: reg. $55.99/ now $44.99
  • PS3 Borderlands – The Prequel: reg. $59.99/ now $34.79
  • PS3 Call of Duty Advanced Warfare Pro Edition: reg. $99.99/ now $79.99
  • PS4/PS3 Destiny: reg. $59.99/ now $44.99
  • PS4 FIFA15: reg. $59.99/ now $35.99
  • PS4 Just Dance 2015: reg. $49.99/ now $37.49
  • PS4 LEGO Batman: reg. $59.99/ now $44.99
  • PS4 NBA 2k15: reg. $59.99/ now $49.79
  • PS3 Risen 3: reg. $49.99/ now $29.99
  • PS4/ PS3 The Evil Within: reg. $59.99/ now $30
  • PS4 The Walking Dead Season 2: reg. $24.99/ now $6.25
  • PS4 The Walking Dead The Complete First Season: reg. $24.99/ now $6.25
  • PS4/ PS3 Watch Dogs: reg. $59.99/ now $44.99

For 75% off, The Walking Dead seasons 1 and 2 for the PS4 stand out from the pack. They were both originally priced at $25 and are now under $10, so if you haven’t yet watched them, then now is your chance to get both for less than you would normally pay for each. Keep in mind that this is the game version and not the TV series. The first season of the game is a 5-part series, where you play as Lee Evertt, a convicted criminal trying to survive in a world plagued by the undead. The second season continues the same story line but this time, you play as Clementine, a young girl.

Above, I featured Borderlands: The Prequel, which is another game worth picking up. It has generated a merascore of 75/100 on Metacritic with reviews like the following:

Exactly what fans of the series wanted in a new instalment — more Borderlands. It keeps everything that made Borderlands 2 great, and adds a few new tricks of its own. It might not be innovative, but it’s damn fun to play. Honestly, isn’t that what really matters?

From there, either head over to the Sony Entertainment Network site to search and buy the game(s) you want or you can also get them directly through your PlayStation.

Amazon Canada: $35 Off Disney Infinity Starter Packs (Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360) – $39.99

Posted by on December 23, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Amazon Canada: $35 Off Disney Infinity Starter Packs (Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360)   $39.99

For anyone still enjoying their older consoles, pick up the Disney Infinity Starter Packs (original) for the Wii U, PS3, or Xbox 360 on sale for just $39.99 each, originally $74.99.

Okay, so the prices actually vary a tiny bit but the most expensive game is $39.99 right now. Here is what you can buy these fun little games for:

Each box comes with three characters: Mr. Incredible, Jack Sparrow, and Sulley and three play sets: Monsters University, Pirates of the Caribbean, and The Incredibles. I have to say I really like this play set because it includes two of my favourite characters – Jack and Mr. Incredible. I was never a Monster’s Inc fan but my husband is so we would probably rather enjoy this set together. Jack, what can I say about him? I absolutely adore the character and I think they did a good job rendering him in animation style. Unlike the other two characters, he is not originally animated so I think that is extra special.

Now, I price compared these original Disney Infinity Starter Packs with other stores. Here is what they currently sell for elsewhere:

  • $49.95 @ Future Shop Canada (PS3, Wii U OOS)
  • $49.95 @ Best Buy Canada (only Wii U)
  • $74.95 @ Chapters Canada
  • $74.96 @ Walmart Canada (in-store)
  • $74.99 @ Toys R Us Canada

While I could find some decent sale prices at Future Shop and best Buy Canada, Amazon’s price is still better. In addition, Amazon Canada is the only store that has the Xbox 360 version on sale as the twins did not have that version on their website.

This has constantly been one of those games I have been tempted to buy. I would love to hear an adult’s perspective on the game though. Most the reviews on the game tend to be from adults who bought it for kids:

The game was my 8 year old gift, but it has lure his older brother to play with him which I think is great. It is Disney, so the characters were extremely familiar to him and he is enjoying the different aspects of the game. Highly recommended!

Do not forget that Amazon Canada has also discounted the Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Super Heroes Starter Pack for the Xbox One to just $39.99 as well. All the other consoles cost loads more.

Receive free shipping with your order as it costs over $25.

7 Games Free to Play @ Steam Powered

Posted by on December 23, 2014 at 3:00 PM

7 Games Free to Play @ Steam Powered

We are all hiding the mail and burning our credit card statements around this time of year, right? Rather than buying some more games this year, Steam has set up seven games you can play for free. A penny saved is a penny earned, right? I wish.

No, you do not get to keep a copy of these games permanently, but you still get to play them for free and have a jolly good time doing so. It is almost as good as keeping them except it takes up less space on your hard drive in the long term. While we occasionally see the odd Free Play promotion from Steam or Origin, it is rare to have so many options.

Without further ado, here are the seven games you can choose to play for free:

School of Dragons is totally designed after How to Train Your Dragon. Therefore, if you or your kids are a big fan then this will be a sweet little game to try out. Might also keep the little eggnog hoovers out of the kitchen while you cook the Christmas turkey. The graphics look totally wicked and the dragons are incredibly accurate to the movie! I thought I would be most interested in Lost Sage, but I think School of Dragons looks better overall.

Lost Saga NA still catches my attention. Anime style characters battle it out in a fighter / brawler style game. Think the Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter arcade games from way back and you totally have the idea. Choose from 60 different characters and kick some royal butt.

Fork Parker’s Holiday Profit Hike totally threw me for a loop with a name like that. After reading a bunch of comments, it appears to be a game much like Mario with a storyline around some guy trying to finance an indie game. One reviewer said:

I started this game with $100 and now have a crippling debt of $395000. That’s worse than college.
Profits are downnn!!! 10/10

It sounds like most people are having a lot of fun with it, and best of all it is free to play.

2014 Holiday Sale Now On @ Steam Powered (Up To 90% Off LOADS Of Games)

Posted by on December 21, 2014 at 5:45 PM

2014 Holiday Sale Now On @ Steam Powered (Up To 90% Off LOADS Of Games)

Calling all gamers: you will be excited to know that Steam’s annual Holiday Sale is now live and until the second day of the new year, you can save up to 90% off (if not more) plenty of games.

New deals are made available every day until 1pm EST the next day and there are also plenty of flash sales to take advantage of as well.

Today, for instance, you can get Skyrim (featured in the image above) for just $5.49 instead of its regular price of $21.99. Considering the immense popularity of this game, this is an amazing discount and one you shouldn’t miss if you have been meaning to give this epic game a try.

Make sure to read the reviews as they are absolutely hilarious and show just how addicting and awesome this game truly is. Here’s one such review:

If I had to choose between this game, and my girlfriend. I’d pick this game.
EDIT: I’m single now.

If you want something else to keep you occupied for hours on end, then Portal 2 is 80% off. Right now, you can get it for just $4.39 (reg. $21.99), although if you haven’t played the first one, then you can also get a Portal 1 & 2 bundle for just $5.59 (reg. $27.99). It’s essentially a puzzle game that traps you in various situations. You have to get out of intricately-detailed rooms by creating portals and hopping around from place to place.

This game too also has plenty of very interesting reviews that make you wonder how those reviewers had the time and creativity to come up with those. Here’s one such review:

BEFORE YOU BUY THIS GAME
- Note that after playing this game your brain WILL explode (with knowledge)
- Understand that your IQ will increase
- May contain traces of Smooth Jazz
- Know that this game is awesome

Don’t worry about missing out on discounts as once you click over to Steam’s website, you will be able to see “yesterday’s” deals as well. To give you an example, NBA 2K15 is on sale for $46.89 (reg. $69.99), which is a 33% discount.

By scrolling all the way down, you will also be able to see all of Steam’s 6187 games on sale… yep, that’s just how major their holiday sale is!

EB Games: South Park Stick of Truth $9.99 TODAY (EXPIRED)

Posted by on December 20, 2014 at 12:17 PM

EB Games: South Park Stick of Truth $9.99 TODAY (EXPIRED)

Today only, EB Games is selling South Park: The Stick of Truth for only $9.99 (down from $29.99) for the PS3 and Xbox 360.

A quick price comparison shows how much other companies are selling this South Park game for:

  • $29.99 (Xbox 360) @ Amazon.ca
  • $31.99 (PS3) @ Amazon.ca
  • $24.96 (Xbox) @ Walmart.ca
  • $19.99 (PS3) @ Walmart.ca (OOS)
  • $29.99 (both) @ Best Buy Canada
  • $29.99 (both) @ Future Shop Canada

Future Shop is also offering used copies for $24.99. Thus, this sale of brand new South Park: The Stick of Truth games for just $9.99 each is a wicked deal. The closest price to that: Walmart’s PS3 version is double the price and already sold out.

South Park is not really my thing so I cannot tell you much about other than what I have researched. it is an epic quest style game where you recruit your friends to help out and can arm yourself to the hilt with awesome weapons. Trey Parker and Matt Stone, familiar names to any South Park fans, voice the game.

The game tends to rate fairly well, with the PS3 version a 3.73/5 on EB games and the Xbox 360 version a 3.86/5. One reviewer on Amazon says:

If you are a true South Park fan, this game is EPIC. Almost every character and major episode reference is in here. The gameplay is a highly simplistic fighting model, but to be honest I was much more interested in simply exploring the town of South Park and it’s very interactive environment, coming across all of the different characters and seeing where both the main storyline and side mission stories went.

There is a lot more to his review and many others, and it is mostly singing the praises of the game. The only real critics I see are those who think the game is a bit expensive, or from those who are not South Park fans. I honestly do not see why you would buy a game built around South park if you did not actually like or watch South Park. That is somewhat weird.

Now, you are probably wondering about shipping. Well, you can get this lovely game shipped to your local store free. I live about a five-minute drive from an EB Games so this is my first choice. Standard shipping costs $4.99 or is free on orders of $25.

Toys R Us Canada: Electronic Battleship Was $50 | Now $25

Posted by on December 19, 2014 at 1:28 PM

Toys R Us Canada: Electronic Battleship Was $50 | Now $25

Toys R Us has another round of 3-day deals going on, starting today and there are some hot ones. Besides 20% off select Lego and up to $30 off Disney Frozen items, there are a bunch of Hasbro games on for 50% off. Electronic Battleship may be on your to-give list (its actually on mine!), and it is now only $24.97, with a regular price of $49.99.

As I said in another post, my in-laws and I trade family board games at Christmas. This year they asked for ideas as with as many kids as we have, both families probably have quite a few board games. The game they wanted is Battleship, so of course, I’ve been watching for deals on this game. I could get them the regular Battleship game, which is priced at $20 at Toys R Us, but this looks like much more fun.

What makes it more fun? You can use preset layouts, it makes fun noises and lights up and the best part – you can play against the computer, so you don’t need a second player.

I actually think I’m going to order one of these for my oldest son. We played Battleship two nights ago together, as this was a favourite of mine as a kid and he loves it. His younger brothers have trouble playing with him, as getting the letter and number right is crucial and that is a bit tough for him. It is rated for 8 and up, so that makes sense. If I get him this one, he can play it on his own, rather than waiting for me to get my stuff together and sit and take a break with him.

I tried to price compare and didn’t find the electronic version of this game at very many stores. I personally think it is a good deal though, considering the regular one sells for what it does at most stores. I’m going to pick up two right now and pick them up at my local store so I know I’ll have them by Christmas. While our elves found out that you can order by today to get it by Christmas, this could be iffy if you absolutely have to have it by then. If I did want to get it shipped, it would be free as you get free shipping on orders over $25.

There are lots of other Hasbro games on sale right now too, which look super fun for your family game nights.

Shape Up – Xbox One Only $29.96 @ Walmart (Was $60)

Posted by on December 14, 2014 at 2:23 PM

Shape Up   Xbox One Only $29.96 @ Walmart (Was $60)

Shape Up for the Xbox One is on sale for only $29.96 at Walmart Canada with free shipping. That is 50% off the regular price of $59.99 so you are saving a good chunk of cash on a brand new game for a new console.

Let us get our price comparisons out of the way first. I will let you know right away that Amazon Canada just dropped their price on Shape Up for the Xbox Up to match Walmart’s price. So if Walmart sells out, you can hop on over to Amazon Canada to purchase the game. Now, while there are two companies with the same price, the game is still a good deal. Every other company I price compared with has the game for substantially higher. Shape Up is $59.99 @ Best buy, $59.99 @ Future Shop, and $59.99 @ EB games (OOS). EB Games even had recycled copies for $54.99, which are also out of stock.

This is a game you are going to want to have in your arsenal come the New Year. When you are stuffed fat full of turkey and ham and Christmas treats, you will need something to get you off your butt and burning all those calories. This game is all about making you forget you are working out by having a load of fun. Via the camera, you can work out with your friends or family. You can also save your workouts and challenge your friends.

Now, a bug taints many of the comments – where the game would just randomly crash. However, there is a simple fix for this:

To fix this issues with this game simply change the Profile Pic to a standard one. It’s a strange fix, but whatever makes it work is alright.

Once you fix the small glitch, people seem to love the game:

Two workouts completed. Keeping the game! Worked up a bit of a sweat. With a nice variety of mini games and a tracker to keep you wanting to do more, this game has just enough to be a strong addition to my stable of workout games. Personally I would price it at 44.99… especially with the season pass already available.

I like how this person suggests a price he would feel comfortable paying for the game. Well, now it is $15 below what even he would pay so I suggest grabbing it ASAP.

Amazon Canada: 20% Off PS4 & XBox One Games TODAY (EXPIRED)

Posted by on December 11, 2014 at 12:15 PM

Amazon Canada: 20% Off PS4 & XBox One Games TODAY (EXPIRED)New games are on so many wish lists this year. If you missed on on the last sale Amazon had on new console games, then take advantage of their new 20% off deal when you purchase two or more select Ps4 and Xbox One games. This offer ends tonight!

This offer should work on all the games through the above link as the link directly connects to the promotion. The offer is only valid on the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game. Only games sold directly from Amazon (not secondary sellers) are eligible for the promotion. You will not see the discount in your cart, but it will be shown on your order total before you complete checkout. See below as an example:

Amazon Canada: 20% Off PS4 & XBox One Games TODAY (EXPIRED)

You can order more than two games, but you must order a minimum of two for the promotion to work.

As console games are terribly expensive, you can understand why this promotion is so lucrative. In my demo cart I used Little Big Planet 3 – PlayStation 4 Day One Edition at $69.95 and Halo: The Master Chief Collection – Xbox One at $69. However, there are many other popular games you can choose from in this offer.

A few titles sparked my interest. The Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor – Xbox One looks really cool. I really love the Lord of the Rings and The hobbit movies so anything set in that world really perks my interest. In addition, one reviewer said that:

The nemesis system really give a different personality to each of your enemy, so you don’t feel like you are bashing through generic enemy without personality. Each time you face an Uruk, he will remember what you did and it will impact on it’s motivation and personality. Each enemy is unique and you will never meet him again in another game neither will you hear the same line of dialogue

That sounds pretty awesome. I have played quite a few games and repeat dialogue and ‘bashing through enemies’ gets pretty boring after a while I LOVE the sound of that system.

I also think that Just Dance 2015 – PS4 Standard Edition looks pretty cool as well but it is getting mixed reviews. Evidently, Ubisoft is really pushing their downloadable content. I think dance games are a lot of fun (hello dance-dance revolution, which I SUCK at!).

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Sony Entertainment Network: Holiday Games Sale up to 60% Off

Posted by on December 11, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Sony Entertainment Network: Holiday Games Sale up to 60% Off

The Sony Entertainment Network is throwing a Holiday Games sale right now. We are in to the second week of the sale, with the deals changing each week. This week, save up to 60% on fun and fabulous games from the Sony PlayStation Store.

In the sale, you will find games for all sorts of devices. This week you can find games for the:

  • PS4
  • PS3
  • PS Vita

Some say ‘full game’ and some say ‘PSN game’, which means it is in the Playstation Network. I figured with how popular the new PS4 is this year; everyone will want to purchase games for it. Here are a few games on sale for the PS4.

Games on the PSN tend to be cheaper overall, and I think they provide excellent value for their purchase price. Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry has a 4/5 star ranking on the Sony Playstation store right now with over 3000 votes. That is pretty awesome and makes this game a solid choice for your library.

If you have not upgraded to the PS4 yet, there are still plenty of choices for the PS3. Many of the same titles are available across the platforms. However, games like Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate – Deluxe Edition are only on sale for the PS3. Originally $19.99, this game is discounted to $11.99.

My favourite game of the same is for a device I have never even laid hands on: the PS Vita. I just adore the art of Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars. I can tell by the solid 5/5 star rating that I must not be alone. I think 387 other people agree with me. Originally $39.99, the game is on sale for $23.99. This game makes me seriously want to buy a PS Vita – I wonder if I can get a good deal on one this Boxing Day.

Next week there will be a completely new set of games on sale to drool over. This is a great way to build up your new PS4 library or increase the libraries you already have for the PS3 or PS Vita.

I assume all prices are in USD.

Future Shop: Franklin Air Hockey Table $99.99 (Save $49) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on December 10, 2014 at 11:19 AM

Future Shop: Franklin Air Hockey Table $99.99 (Save $49) (EXPIRED)

Future Shop Canada’s one-day deal today is a Franklin Zero Gravity Air Hockey Table for just $99.99, down from the regular price of $148.99. The table is only on sale today and qualifies for free shipping as it costs over $25.

I price compared this table with other retailers and here is the going price right now:

  • $159.99 @ Shop.ca
  • $149.99 @ Well.ca
  • $148.99 @ Amazon.ca

As is to be expected, Best Buy Canada has the same deal as their sister site Future Shop, so if it sells out here you can always pick it up at Best Buy.

Whenever my father and I used to go to the theatre to watch a movie, we would stop off in the arcade to play a couple rounds of air hockey. My father is very good at air hockey and he would win most the time. I am vicious at it – I make the puck go fast and go flying but it might not go anywhere near the hole. My sense of direction is lacking but it sure is fun.

A table like this would be a riot in your own games room at home. The zero gravity air hockey table features a powerful enough motor to keep the puck flowing smoothly along the high gloss surface. As a cool bonus, there is an LED scoreboard mounted on the side that automatically keeps track of your points. That way there is no arguing over whether you are up to five or six points due to your opponent’s ‘faulty’ memory.

While there are no reviews at Future Shop, there are two on Best Buy with a solid 5/5 star rating right now. Here is what one reviewer said:

I bought this as a gift. The box is almost a meter long and all wrapped up it had a ‘wow’ factor to it. Once out of the box, the assembly was easy – took less than 10 minutes before the kids were playing their first game.

The board comes with two pushers and two pucks. As with all games, there is some level of learning involved. This game is great for increasing hand-eye coordination. Game players can also work on aim and direction as well. I find that games like this also promote the use of angles. Like pool, you make shots off the side, so you start to understand that if you hit the side at a given angle then the puck will project out of the side at a certain angle.

Canadian Freebie: SimCity 2000 Special Edition Free @ Origin ($6 Value)

Posted by on December 9, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Canadian Freebie: SimCity 2000 Special Edition Free @ Origin ($6 Value)

Today we have a lovely freebie for our sweet Moosers from Origin. Download SimCity 2000 Special Edition from Origin for free. This game has a value of $5.99, so not bad for a freebie!

This is a free PC game. It is not a demo or a trial – you get to keep the full game, forever, and not pay for it. I have to admit, I know absolutely nothing about this game so I had to search the internet for some information. According to Origin, this is a classic Maxis city building and management simulation game. You build everything from the ground up including:

schools, libraries, hospitals, zoos, prisons, power plants, and much more… Lay down roads, railways, and highways. Explore the underground layer and build subways and utilities without compromising your aesthetics. Customize different buildings or design your own graphics sets from scratch.

If you enjoy creating, designing, organizing, and then ruining the lives of your little Sims, then this is the ultimate game for you. Some people argue that this was the best SimCity ever and that all others have paled in comparison. Needless to say, you can check out if this claim is correct or just a bunch of nostalgic nonsense getting in the way.

I have played one Sim game, though I cannot recall what it was now. A friend of mine had a cheat code to give you endless money so I just ignored my Sims and sat their designing and building, and decorating houses all day. That was a lot of fun but the Sims were horribly annoying.

To redeem your freebie, you will need an Origin account. It is worth signing up for one if you do not already have one as Origin often gives away free games so you can get an entire library worth of games you will never have to pay to play. We do not know how long this deal is going to last, but if past deals are any indication it should be on till the end of the month. We hope.

Steam Exploration Sale Featuring 90% Off Battleblock Theater – Now $1.69

Steam Exploration Sale Featuring 90% Off Battleblock Theater   Now $1.69

Steam is indulging in an Exploration Sale with feature deals that last a couple days and daily deals that are released at 2 PM EST each day. One of today’s daily deals is Battleblock Theater for a breathtaking 90% off. Originally $16.99, the game is now on sale for $1.69.

The game sounds wicked awesome. You are on a quest to free over 300 of your closest and dearest *cough* imprisoned friends from some evil technological cats that are trying to rule the world or run a circus or something. The game style looks a lot like Mario and you can even build your own levels to screw with your friends. It will probably be the best entertainment you have had for $2, much better than that bouncy ball you got out of that giant gumball machine.

Steam has a plethora of great deals on other games right now as well. Here are some of the highest discounts:

Some recently released games are included in this sale for those holding out on the most recent edition of their favourite franchise. The Evil Within was just released in October this year, but the game that usually retails for $66.49 is on sale for just $22.60.

I do not play many games on Steam Powered, but Sid Meier’s Civilization series happens to be the one I play most. I have not bought the most recent release, Beyond Earth, as I am not quite ready to step off the planet I know and love so well. However, this sale brings Beyond Earth, which was released near the end of October 2014, down to $34.99, from $49.99.

While scrolling down through the immense number of games on sale I ran into many quirky ones like this BIT.TRIP Presents… Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien for just $1.35, originally $16.99. This game rather reminds me of a Sonic the Hedgehog racing game where you run instead of drive around and collect gold while navigating obstacles and hitting power ups. Reviews say that the music and scenery are worth it even if you suck at playing the game.

Be sure to check back tomorrow after 2PM EST to see what other amazing games will be on sale.

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! Not too long ago, Battlefield 4 became free to play for one entire week and it looks like Origin just brought back this awesome freebie, so if you haven’t already taken advantage of it, I suggest you jump on it now! 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?
