Amazon Canada: Free Game ($70 Value) with PS4 Bundle Purchase

Amazon Canada: Free Game ($70 Value) with PS4 Bundle Purchase

Amazon Canada is offering a free game worth up to $69.99 with the purchase of select PlayStation 4 Bundles.

The console must be purchased from Amazon Canada (not secondary marketplace sellers). The game will be in the form of a code that you can redeem at http://redeem.us.playstation.com . Expect the code to be emailed out to you within two days of your completed shipment. The following consoles qualify for this deal:

The Destiny Ps4 bundle is no longer available from Amazon Canada. However, if you have your heart set on that bundle, then watch the link to see if Amazon brings some in. Now, for your free game you have a choice between four titles:

  • Destiny
  • NBA 2K15
  • Far Cry 4
  • Little Big Planet 3

I looked at what these games are retailing for right now to give you a good idea as to the true ‘value’ of this deal. Destiny costs $44.99, NBA 2K15 costs $60.53, Far Cry 4 costs $42.44, and Little Big Planet 3 costs $46.99 for the PS4 editions. While it appears that NBA 2K15 is the best choice, it will all depend upon which bundle you purchase and which games you already own. You will not want to choose Little Big Planet 3 if you are going to get the bundle that already includes that game.

While this may not seem like a huge deal, the game is worth approximately 10%, if not a bit more, of the price you are paying for the PS4. Thus, I think it is a nice bonus given the PS4 console is still new.

The offer limited to one per customer and account. There is no expiry date so you should see this “Get a Select Bonus Game with PS4 Purchase” under special offers and promotions. If that is missing, then the promotion is over.

I am quite curious as to how many of our lovely Moosers have already upgraded to the PS4 and what you think of it so far. I only have a PS3, and I am quite attached to it since I have opened it up twice to fix it – successfully I might add! I do not think I play enough console games to warrant a new console, especially since I can play most the current games on my old console anyway. However, I would like to know what you think so comment below!

Star Wars Humble Bundle – Pay What You Want ($28 Value)

Posted by on February 3, 2015 at 7:00 PM

Star Wars Humble Bundle   Pay What You Want ($28 Value)

Humble Bundle always has fantastic bundles available where you can pay what you want for the games. However, when I saw a special Star Wars edition pop up in my in box, I just knew I had to mention it. Pay what you want (seriously!) for three Star Wars games on Steam.

You can purchase the first three Star Wars games in this bundle for as low as $0.01. Those games are:

Now, that is a great little bundle there. You get three games – total value of $28.47 – for whatever you want to pay for them. If you love storm troopers, the Death Star, a certain Dark Lord, and more… these games are going to be just what the doctor ordered.

These are not some B-rated games either. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic has a Metacritic score of 93/100. The reviews on Steam are also very positive with many reviewers declaring it the best Star Wars game ever:

1.Amazing Story
2.Great and Addictive Combat
3.Tons Of Side Quests
and finally 4. BEST GAME I EVER PLAYED!!!!!!!!!

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is no slouch either with an 81/100 metascore and overwhelmingly positive user reviews on Steam. The reviewers love both the single-player mode and the incredible multiplayer community that still draws a following many years after the game was published.

Lastly, Star Wars: Dark Forces is a smaller game with very positive user reviews as well. This is an older game (1995), so expect the graphics to represent the times, but you will still enjoy the good game play and solid story line. You may even make it past level one this time around.

But wait, there is more! If you pay over the average (currently $10.27), then you will unlock three more Star Wars Games. On top of that, if you pay $12 for the bundle then you receive an additional three games (one is a Gold pack). According to Humble Bundle, for a mere $12 you can have $111 worth of Star Wars games. I have to say, that is a pretty hot deal.

If you want to gift this bundle to a deserving friend or family member, then just remember to check the appropriate box at the bottom.

Amazon.ca: Disney Infinity Playsets just $24.99 & Free Shipping

Posted by on February 2, 2015 at 12:30 PM

Amazon.ca: Disney Infinity Playsets just $24.99 & Free Shipping

Amazon Canada has discounted a couple Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes play sets from $34.99 down to $24.99. Choose from the Spiderman Play Set or the Guardians of the Galaxy Play Set. All orders of $25 or more ship for free from Amazon Canada, so the play sets qualify for free shipping.

Now, the Guardians of the Galaxy set is easy to find (the Amazon Edition pops up), but for some reason a secondary-seller pops up as the ‘main offer’ for the Spiderman Edition. Do not fear. Look for the little link below that says “4 new from CDN$ 26.99.” Click on that link and the first offer you will see is Amazon Canada’s price at $26.99 (see below). The reason it is hiding there is it will take 1 – 4 months to ship (is not currently in stock).

Amazon.ca: Disney Infinity Playsets just $24.99 & Free Shipping

I price compared both play sets with other retailers. At the following retailers, the Spiderman play set costs:

  • $34.99 @ Future Shop (OOS)
  • $39.99 @ Chapters Indigo Canada
  • $34.83 @ Walmart Canada (OOS)
  • $34.99 @ Best Buy (OOS)

As for Guardians of the Galaxy, I also price compared that set in case the price was different. Here is what I found:

  • $39.95 @ Chapters Indigo Canada
  • $34.83 @ Walmart Canada (OOS)
  • $34.99 @ Best Buy Canada (OOS)
  • $34.99 @ Future Shop (OOS)

As you can see, Amazon Canada not only has the best price on these sets, they actually have them for sale. I searched four other stores for these sets with three out of the four stores sold out. These play sets appear to be difficult to acquire online right now, so this is not only a nice sale but also great timing.

The Spiderman Play Set comes with Spider-Man, Nova, and an all-new Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man Game only available in this set. The Guardians of the Galaxy Play Set comes with Star Lord and Gamora. Unlock awesome intergalactic adventures with these two. One reviewer pointed out some important differences between packs:

The biggest thing to know is that it varies from the Avengers playset quite a bit. Like that one there is a heavy combat focus, but I would argue the missions are more varied. Rail slide challenges, anti-air shooting gallerias, and platform puzzles are easy examples of this.

As per usual, these sets do not come with the Marvel Infinity game, you will need to already own it or purchase it separately.

Canadian Freebies: Absolutly Free Games on Steam

Posted by on February 1, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Canadian Freebies: Absolutly Free Games on Steam

I mentioned a bit ago that there are often ‘Free to Play’ games available on Steam. They change over often so there is often something new and exciting to try out in your spare time. However, there are also some completely free games on Steam. That means they are yours not only to play, but also to keep.

Usually these games are pretty short and they are all indie games. However, it is a great way to experiment with new genres, ideas, and just have some free fun. Here are just a few of the games available for free:

This is just a taste of the free games available to play on Steam right now. To find others, go to Steam Search and type in “free to play” – you can also type in “free” but it gives you 3x the results and most aren’t free. The “Free to play” search will bring up all the free to play and the actually free games. You can see the difference in the screen capture below:

Canadian Freebies: Absolutly Free Games on Steam

The first two games are actually free – to keep – while the third is only free to play but could be withdrawn at a later time. I just picked out the first eight I saw, but there are loads of these games on Steam just waiting for you to find them. There is no need to throw money at Steam for anything but your favourites when there are plenty of free options.

I am downloading Sigils of Elohim as we speak. I LOVE puzzles games but my old favourite (Jewels of the Oracle) is very outdated and they really have not come out with anything to equal its splendour. I am hoping this sweet little free puzzle game will be just the distraction I need when I want to relax.

I will probably download Amoung Ripples as well. It is a cool little indie game where you control a pond’s ecosystem by adding different creatures to it. See how your creatures interact and create a cool little underwater eco-system. This is also a fun game to entertain your cats.

When you download your free games, let us know which ones you choose!

Walmart Canada: Game of Risk Was $25 | Now $15 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 29, 2015 at 1:54 PM

Walmart Canada: Game of Risk Was $25 | Now $15 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Get some Risk in your life right now for only $14.93 from Walmart and it will ship to you for free on top! Regularly $24.93, this game is a must-have.

I’ve been playing Risk since I was a wee girl and I still play it on a regular basis now. I mainly play because I’m very good at it and I win a lot and I like winning. Well, I also play because it is a fun game of world domination and who doesn’t love taking over the entire world? I have fond memories of family members flipping the board up on its end when they lose and not speaking for weeks. I’m just kidding about that part, although emotions really can run high when playing Risk.

My two older sons love playing this game as well, and while they aren’t the greatest at strategy yet (I want all the things!), rolling the dice and deciding which parent they don’t like as much at the moment to attack is pretty simple for them. Usually its me because, like I said, I usually win. I just tell them they need to get another 30 or so years playing under their belt like I’ve had.

I actually owned the original game from 1975 at one point, but my dog was not happy with me one day and tore it to shreds. I do have a new copy, although I paid $25 for it and didn’t get this deal right here. I guess I don’t always win. Either way, this is a fun family game and for $15, you’ll want this with your stash of board games.

This is the cheapest price out there, although Amazon sells it for $14.88, you won’t get free shipping and to my house, that added another $7. Toys R Us sells it for the full price of $24.99.

If you don’t want to take my word for it, read some of the reviews, like this one from Amazon:

Canadian Freebie: Free Radical Roach on Steam @ Indie Gala

Posted by on January 26, 2015 at 2:52 PM

Canadian Freebie: Free Radical Roach on Steam @ Indie Gala

Do you love free games? Then request your free Steam Key for Radical Roach Deluxe Edition at Indie Gala. The game is valued at $7.79, but is on sale for $1.16 this week at Steam Powered. No matter what you want to consider the ‘value’ of this game, either way you will pay $0 for it.

The steps are simple. Enter your email address in the banner near the top of the page that shows the free Steam giveaway. You can uncheck the newsletter box if you do not want to be subscribed. Click “Redeem” and then fill out the captcha. You will then receive two emails. Click through one to access your Indie profile and find the Steam Key redemption area through there. It should look something like this:

Canadian Freebie: Free Radical Roach on Steam @ Indie Gala

Then you just click the Steam button and it will take you through the redemption process for your key. You can also gift the key to someone else. However, once you do that you will be unable to access it yourself.

According to Steam, Radical Roach is a:

fast paced shoot em’ up, set minutes after nuclear hell falls from the sky engulfing all but a few tough little bugs.

The game was just released in May and features a very explicit warning that the game is HARD. This is a single-player game where you need to defeat a barrage of enemies on every level. There are no power-ups so things are going to get bad in a hurry. Some people complain about the lack of variation on the game, that each level is like the previous one (except harder), while others praise the funny artwork, fun characters, and interesting story line.

I think the art looks pretty cool and the price is right. So why not pick this little game up and add it to your collection? I have no idea when this deal will end, so you better take advantage of it sooner rather than miss out.

Playstation Network Coupon: 10% PS Store Discount

Posted by on January 23, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Playstation Network Coupon: 10% PS Store Discount

The Sony PlayStation Network is offering a one-time 10% discount off eligible items for their PSN members this weekend.

Click here to shop @ the PlayStation Network now

  • Coupon Code: JBFHBPJL8H
  • Discount: 10% off
  • Expiry: 26th January 2015 @ 9AM PT

You can only use the coupon code once per account, so make sure you have all the games you want in your cart at once. According to the blog post about this from the Sony network, exclusions include:

subscriptions for PS Plus, Music Unlimited, PS Now and rental video content (update: game preorders are also excluded from this promotion, we apologize for the confusion).

Now, you can order either through your PlayStation or online via the website I linked to above. I have linked directly to all the games that qualify for the extra 10% discount, with many games already on sale.

In the deals section, I found LEGO Marvel Super Heroes priced at $19.99 for the PS4. The website does not say how much it cost originally, but that seems like a very good price. The game is highly rated with a near perfect five start out of five rating. Nearly nine-thousand people cannot be wrong! After coupon code, pick up the game for $17.99.

While I like super-heroes well enough, my heart belongs to a certain dwarf king. The PS4 Lego The Hobbit is currently $29.99, but comes down to $26.99 after coupon. Follow Bilbo as he is recruited by a certain pointy-hat wizard to go on an epic quest for the dwarven king and his mighty band of dwarfs.

On my wish list are a few cheaper games. I want to pick up FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 as it is on sale for just $9.99 right now, and comes down to $8.99 after coupon. I would also like to pick up Tomb Raider: Underworld. Sure, it is an older game, but there is nothing like kicking ass as Laura Crawford. Outside the anime world, she is one of the few female protagonists to head the video game world and make a successful go of it. After discount, purchase the game for $4.49. Both of these games are for the PS3, which suits me fine, as I own one of those.

I cannot actually remember the PSN releasing a flat out coupon code like this before. I suggest checking out the Weekly Deals, 50% off Section, and up to 85% off 2K sale to maximize your savings.

For other amazing coupon codes, visit our forum.

Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth Free to Play & 40% Off @ Steam

Posted by on January 15, 2015 at 4:00 PM

Sid Meiers Civilization: Beyond Earth Free to Play & 40% Off @ Steam

There goes my weekend! Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth (you know that edition they just released THIS FALL) is now free to play on Steam for this weekend only! This is huge news my lovely gamers!

Three days of free game play for one of the greatest franchises to grace the PC is nothing to snivel at. This newly imagined edition to the Civilization franchise takes conquest, expansion, and domination off a ‘normal planet’ with human like Barbarians, resources, terrain, and water. This time, you get to deal with alien life forms, new resources, different factions, and learn how to survive beyond Earth.

I will admit that I have not yet bought Beyond Earth. I am still revelling in Civilization V with the New World expansion on top of Gods & Kings. I try not to waste every Saturday morning gaming, but a few times a month I cannot recall doing much else. It is relaxing, fun, and great strategic planning for taking over the world.

Now, you have three days to enjoy playing Beyond Earth free. You will need to download the game to your system, and then you are all set. If you get addicted (don’t blame me!), I have some other good news for you. Right now, Beyond Earth is on sale for 40% off. Originally $49.99, the game is on sale for $29.99. This is $5 cheaper than the game cost during the large Steam end of year sale I blogged about back in December.

Now, the reviews for this game on Steam are truly a mixed kettle of fish. 55% are positive, which means 45% are negative (see? I did math right there). That is odd as the game has a metacritic score of 81/100 (quite good). Metacritic is seen as THE authority on gaming these days. There seems to be a large gap between the critic’s scores and the gamer’s scores. My guess is that fanboys came into the game with a set of expectations that were not met. Half the fanboys want Civilization V (with all the DLCs) but in space. The other half want something that does not remotely resemble Civ V and are pissed that it has elements of that game in it. Personally, I say play it for yourself and always keep an open mind. Never let the masses tell you what you should like.

(Expiry: 18th January 2015 - free play)

Free Game ($40 Value) with AMD APU Purchase @ Newegg.ca

Posted by on January 14, 2015 at 4:00 PM

Free Game ($40 Value) with AMD APU Purchase @ Newegg.ca

Receive a free game valued at $39.99 when you purchase select AMD APUs from Newegg.ca.

The cheapest AMD processor is already sold out, so hop your bottom over to Newegg Canada before the next cheapest is sold. Out. I recommend the AMD A8-7600 Kaveri Quad-Core 3.1GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket FM2+ 65W Desktop Processor Radeon R7 series as it is on sale from $129.99 down to $114.99. I am not sure if shipping varies, but to my postal code on Vancouver Island, it would cost an additional $10.49. I checked on reviews and the processor averages 4/5 with 20 reviews. One reviewer said:

This is one of the best values of the processor world. I haven’t encountered a game I couldn’t play yet. Admittedly most of my games are from last year or 2012… but I believe with fast memory this processor can handle just about anything…

Now, you will get your choice of a free game with your purchase. You can choose from:

  • Murdered: Soul Suspect
  • LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham
  • Sniper Elite 3

These are all PC games valued at $39.99 each. You do not need to pick the game when you checkout at Newegg.ca. Rather, when you redeem the code for the free game you will then choose which game to buy. Here is how to get your free game after you have purchased the AMD processor of your choice.

  1. Go to www.AMD.com/amdrewards
  2. Sign in or create an account
  3. Follow the instructions to redeem your offer with the code you are provided

LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is the biggest draw in this list of games. The game is currently $29.99 USD on Steam Powered, and you know how the Canadian dollar is currently tanking. Convert that over to Canadian and it is nearly $36. This is a really cool action-adventure game where you play a super-hero trying to defeat the evil Brainiac who shrinks worlds to add them to his collection of miniatures. Reviews on the game are positively brilliant:

In brightest day, in blackest night,
I thought this game would be alright.
My expectations were passed with might,
You’ll give it a try, if you’re fairly bright.

Whoever wrote that is a genius. I would love to try that game out as I enjoy playing Injustice, which is another DC world game of battling with super heroes and super villains. This just involves Lego, and space, and rings.

Amazon.ca: Wii U Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Starter Pack Now $47.99

Posted by on January 11, 2015 at 1:59 PM

Amazon.ca: Wii U Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Starter Pack Now $47.99

Amazon Canada has discounted all the Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Super Heroes Starter Packs. The best deal is on the Wii U as it is on sale from $74.99, down to $47.99.  This is the lowest price drop that we have seen on this console edition of the Disney Marvel Starter Packs.

As I mentioned, all the Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Super Heroes Starter Packs for any console are now under $50 at Amazon Canada. Here is they cost depending on your console:

  • Nintendo Wii U – $47.99
  • PS3 – $49.99
  • PS4 – $49.99
  • Xbox 360 – $49.99
  • Xbox One – $47.99

I am concentrating on the Wii U version because it has not been this low before. We saw the Xbox One version drop as low as $39.99 here, but the Sony Playstation versions, and the Wii U version, have held on tight to around $65 or so for the most part. As I own a PS3, the pack for it at only $49.99 looks rather tempting. I know that anyone with the new PS4 console will appreciate the price drop so they can save money on these awesome figures and the game that goes with them.

Now, many other companies also have the Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel starter sets on sale right now, but Amazon ends up having the best price by a few dollars on the Wii U set:

  • $49.99 @ Best Buy & Future Shop Canada
  • $64.97 @ Toys R Us Canada
  • $69.95 @ Chapters Indigo Canada
  • $74.96 @ Walmart Canada

Prices vary widely, and only the twin electronic stores Best Buy and Future Shop come close. However, you still save an extra couple of dollars purchasing this set through Amazon Canada.

Now, the set comes with The Avengers Play Set, Toy Box Game Discs, and the three figures of Iron Man, Black Widow, and Thor. I would have preferred a Loki character myself, but I guess he does not qualify as a super hero. I think they need to come out with a super villains edition! The game is a bit simplistic according to some adults, but a blast for kids:

My boys can’t get enough of this game…they love superheroes and Infinity 2.0 is way better structured than the first one…helping guide them to missions. Since they are only 4 and 7 yrs old the concept of spending skill points needed to be explained but all in all a great game.

If you own a Wii U, this is the best deal we have seen on this set yet. Receive free shipping as the set costs over $25.

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

Posted by on January 6, 2015 at 5:01 AM

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

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

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.
