(Wii U) Amazon Canada: Pre-Order Mario Party 10 For $50 (Reg. $65) + Free Shipping

(Wii U) Amazon Canada: Pre Order Mario Party 10 For $50 (Reg. $65) + Free Shipping

Here’s a cool deal for the Mario superfans: you can pre-order Mario Party 10 for Wii U for just $49.99 instead of its regular price of $64.99. It’s set to be released on December 31st 2014 and since Amazon ships most orders over $25 for free, your order will also qualify for absolutely free shipping.

When I bought my Wii U last year, the first game that I bought with it was Super Mario 3D World and boy, have I had fun with it! In fact, my hubby and I still aren’t completely done with the game as although we beat the big boss Bowser, it turns out that there are more levels that are actually quite challenging and there is even a special character you can unlock. I fully expect Mario Party 10 to be just as fun, though it’s not in the same game style as the 3D world one. Speaking of which, Amazon also currently has Super Mario 3D World on sale for $49.94 (reg. $59.99).

Mario Party 10 is actually apart of a series of Mario games by the same name, which all originated with the initial Mario Party that was released for Nintendo 64 in 1998. Since then, it has been playable on the GameCube, the Wii and now the Wii U. It’s the kind of game that you can play with friends as up to 4 players compete against one another in a series of challenges and activities. In the previous instalment of Mario Party (the 9th one), for instance, players had to bounce around on a clouds and collect the most amount of coins. I’m sure that this next instalment will feature the a very similar game play, with the added bonus of better graphics with the Wii U and the ability to use the GamePad on top of the regular Nintendo Wii remote plus.

This is definitely a must-have deal for any Mario fan or Wii U owner in general, especially those of you with kids. This game may also be played alone against computerized players. It would definitely be even better if there was a possibility to play online versus friends but perhaps one day, it will be a possibility!

We would love to hear from you! Have you played the previous Mario Party games? What did you think?

(Nintendo 3DS) Mario Golf: World Tour Only $24.99 @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on August 16, 2014 at 3:00 PM

(Nintendo 3DS) Mario Golf: World Tour Only $24.99 @ Amazon.ca

If you or one of the kids have a Nintendo 3DS games system, and are on the lookout for deals on video games, check out the price on Mario Golf: World Tour from Amazon.ca. Usually, $34.99, they’ve knocked ten bucks off the cost of the game, bringing it down to only $24.99 right now.

Nintendo hardly ever discount their games, it’s rare to see this kind of game on special offer. Even when I do a price comparison elsewhere, Mario Golf: World Tour is priced at $35 at all the other online major retailers, such as Walmart, Futureshop, Bestbuy, Archambault, EB Games. I think it’s a super price from Amazon.ca.

A quick blurb about the game:

Face off on traditional courses, or play through new ones with a Mushroom Kingdom twist. The Nintendo 3DS split-screen interface makes it easy to aim shots and track progress on the course, while offering players a deep golf experience with simple controls and Mario flair.

Reviews!

One of my favourite sites for checking out gaming reviews is Metacritic. They calculate a grouped score from many major online reviewers, as well as an aggregated user review score. Mario Golf: World Tour scores really fantastically on both fronts – 78% from the critics, and 81% from regular users. Nintendojo gives this Mario golf game a glowing review. Here’s a quick quote:

Mario Golf: World Tour is a solid mix of great controls, crisp, colorful visuals, great replay value due to its amount of unlockable content, and is ultimately just a flat out great experience.

Looks like a great fun game!

Shipping!

Sadly, this Nintendo 3DS video game is only $0.01 short in price to qualify for Amazon’s free super saver shipping. As you probably know, you need to spend $25+ on Amazon.ca to qualify for their free shipping. What I would obviously recommend is popping something small in to your cart to bring it over the $25 mark, saving you a few bucks on potential shipping fees.

If you really want to, throw in this pack of 24 Crayola crayons for $2.95. You can never have enough crayons! There are cheaper items on Amazon.ca though, just find something else that you are in need of.

Defiance Video Game! Free!

Posted by on August 14, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Defiance Video Game! Free!

Defiance is the game based off the highly popular SyFy Channel TV show in the U.S. that can be watched up here in Canada on Showcase.  The show’s rabid following has led to a clever online game that has an ever-growing community of players. Now Sony is allowing you to play the game for FREE by clicking the link below!

The game Defiance can be either downloaded onto your PlayStation 3 or it can be played online on via streaming on your computer. The game originally was being sold for $49.99 and several sites are now offering it at various discounted prices. But you can’t beat FREE! And that’s why this deal is so incredible because it literally costs nothing. The game is downloadable so there is no shipping. Just click the link. Download and start playing right away. In fact, I’m currently downloading Defiance directly to my PS3 as I write this.

Here’s a little background on the game and the TV show, Defiance. It’s the year 2046 and the Earth has been forever transformed physically due to alien terraforming technology. The technology crashed down to earth from space during a long destructive war between humanity and the aliens. Not only has the Earth’s topography changed with new mountain ranges, lakes, forests, and vegetation, but also there are now new alien animal species, as well as new earth/alien animal hybrids that terrorize the survivors.

The aftermath of the war has forced the remaining humans and aliens to band together to ensure their survival. The world now has a 19th Century feel as long distance communication and air travel either doesn’t work or is too dangerous due to the planet’s new electromagnetic atmosphere. North America is predominantly a badland region with most living on the eastern seaboard of the continent, while the town of Defiance is set as a frontier town located in what was once St. Louis.

Now although Sony is offering the game for free, there are bundle packages that you can buy that add missions, character enhancements, and other options. But that doesn’t mean you can’t and won’t have a great experience playing the game as is. It’s a fantastic opportunity to try the game risk free and if you do enjoy it, then you can possible splurge on a bundle with some of the money you just saved.

EA Access Now Available For Xbox One! Pay Just $4.99/ Month For Free Games, Discounts Etc.

Posted by on August 13, 2014 at 8:00 PM

EA Access Now Available For Xbox One! Pay Just $4.99/ Month For Free Games, Discounts Etc.

Got an Xbox One or planning to get one? Then subscribe to Ea Access for just $4.99 to save on the purchases of games, play games for free and much more!

First of all, this is only valid for Xbox One. Second of all, if you have or are planning to get an Xbox One, then $4.99 is hardly a bank-breaking fee especially since you will end up saving so much more money in long term. An average game usually runs upwards of $70 but with EA Access, you gain access to select games per month with the vault, but there are other benefits as well.

In fact, here are the three main advantages to getting to subscribing to EA Access:

The Vault

Once subscribed, you will gain access to the vault, which will allow you to play games for free and unlike PS Plus’ rather mediocre line-up of games, which are mostly indie ones, EA Access is setting the bar much higher by promising only the best games like Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, Battlefield 4 and Peggle 2 and many others to be added later on as well.

Play For Less

EA Access members can also save 10% on all digital purchases of games. Sadly, this doesn’t apply to physical copies of games but with the way in which everything is transferring to cloud technology, I doubt many of you will mind, especially if you save money. Plus, most games tend to be cheaper digitally, so you might even be looking at save even more than just 10% in comparison to the retail price of physical copies.

Play First

With this benefit, you are given the advantage of downloading and playing games five days before they are released! This is definitely a major perk, especially for full-time gamers, but I’m sure any gamer would appreciate the extra time to learn the ropes of a new game and take a shot at setting high scores. Plus, it would give a major competitive edge over friends who would be playing the game on a PlayStation 4! EA Access Now Available For Xbox One! Pay Just $4.99/ Month For Free Games, Discounts Etc. The only drawback is that you are only provided a limited amount of time in order to try the game, but it’s still a neat feature to have nonetheless, especially if you have been eagerly awaiting the release of a specific game (i.e. NHL 15).

Moosers, do you own an Xbox One? Will you be subscribing to EA Access? Let us know in the comments section!

(PS4 & Xbox One) Best Buy Canada: WWE 2k15 Hulkamania Edition Pre-Order – Just $70 + Free Shipping!

Posted by on August 10, 2014 at 11:30 PM

(PS4 & Xbox One) Best Buy Canada: WWE 2k15 Hulkamania Edition Pre Order   Just $70 + Free Shipping!

Negativity and Hulkamania: two things that don’t go together! Luckily, you can pre-order WWE 2k15 Hulkamnia edition on PS4 or Xbox One for just $69.99 at Best Buy. It’s set to release on October 28th 2014.

First of all, let me start off by saying that you should not wait to pre-order. Best Buy lists this game at a regular price of $69.99 but everywhere else (i.e. Amazon and EB Games), it’s $109.99, which puts this deal at close to a 40% discount in comparison. It’s even already sold out at Future Shop, where it was available for $69.99 as well!

Plus, the vast majority of PlayStation and Xbox One games tend to retail for $69.99, so the fact that this limited edition is at the same price is definitely pretty awesome, especially since the regular edition of this game is retailing for that same exact price right now, but without all of the following bonus features that the Hulkamania edition has:

  • Collective art card personally autographed by Hulk Hogan
  • Funko “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan vinyl figure
  • Authentic piece of ring canvas from Hulk Hogan’s Monday Night Raw appearance on March 10, 2014 in Memphis, TN
  • Premium packaging

In this edition of the game, players are also granted access to two exclusive characters: Hulk Hogan and “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan. It’s also a game that can either be played alone as singleplayer or in a multiplayer mode as it’s in a professional wresting fighting genre. Even cooler is that this latest instalment will focus on a historical timeline of past WWE rivalries, which die hard WWE fans are sure to enjoy. On the same vein, I’m sure just about anyone could enjoy the storyline as well in order to learn more about the history of the WWE, even though it’s fake! (PS4 & Xbox One) Best Buy Canada: WWE 2k15 Hulkamania Edition Pre Order   Just $70 + Free Shipping!

I have to admit that I’m not the biggest Hulk Hogan fan but this is definitely a deal I’ll be taking advantage of as soon as possible before it sells out. I’m certain that my hubby will enjoy playing, especially with the Hulk Hogan character.

Fun fact: did you know that Hulkamnia was started after Hulk Hogan won the 1984 edition of Championship Wrestling? That was 30 years ago! Even crazier is that from 2005 to 2007, Hulk Hogan made a comeback, during which he was in his 50′s!

Amazon Canada: $15 Off PS4 DualShock 4 Controller – Now $50 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on August 10, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Amazon Canada: $15 Off PS4 DualShock 4 Controller   Now $50 (EXPIRED)Need an extra PS4 remote? Amazon has the DualShock 4 controller on sale for just $49.99 (reg. $64.99).

It seems that when you need or want something, there are never any deals around, but as soon as you buy it at full price is when the discounts begin pouring in! Since I only recently bought the PlayStation 4, I also bought an extra remote at Costco, but since there were no deals to be had at that moment and hubby and I were excited to play the Lego Marvel Super Heroes game together, we bought it at its full price of $59.99. Speaking of which, it’s always at that price at Costco, but it’s currently sold out online. The Source has this remote for $64.99, while Future Shop and Best Buy have it for $65.89.

Amazon’s price reduction is definitely the best one all around and I doubt it will go down any lower than that any time soon. Even if you don’t have a PS4 yet, if are planning on buying one soon, then it might be a good idea to take advantage of this deal, especially since you won’t have to worry about any pesky shipping fees as Amazon ships orders over $25 for free.

Filled with AR Bots, which come to life in the PlayRoom, the PS4 remote differs greatly from its PS3 ancestor. On top of being easier and more comfortable to hold, it also features a built-in speaker in an effort to enhance video game-play. In fact, my hubby was playing InFamous: Second Son the other day with hardly any volume on the TV because our baby was sleeping in the same room, when all of a sudden, the remote emitted a loud swooshing noise. Luckily, it didn’t wake up the little one, but it’s still a neat feature to have — assuming there are no sleeping children in the same room!

In fact, the PS4 remote has been extremely well-received by the gaming community, with countless positive reviews like this one:

I received my DualShock 4 and immediately plugged it into my ps3 and my pc. It just feels great to use and makes me feel like Sony really did listen to fans when it comes to the new PlayStation.

Unfortunately the touch pad is just that: a touch pad, but it’s still a neat feature to have as you can use it to swipe and trigger specific features, depending on the game you’re playing. In the case of the AR Bots, you can use the touch pad to control them as you can see in Ali-A Youtube video, but keep in mind that the PlayStation 4 Eye Camera is needed for this and it’s sold separately.

Have you bought the PlayStation 4 yet? What do you think of the new remote?

This weekend, Newegg.ca has announced a special sale on Ubisoft PC game titles, when the digital codes are purchased through their website. There is up to 75% off select titles, and from what I can tell, there are a few great bargains in there!

There are over 32 different titles to choose from in this sale. Some video games are at 50% off, but the majority are discounted by 75%.

Let’s price compare the headliner deal in this sale from Newegg.ca – Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Gold Edition which is priced at $29.99 on there. That’s half price, according to Newegg.ca. The price for this game is $49.99 on the EA Origin store. It’s also $59.99 on GreenMan Gaming, $59.99 @ uPlay, $59.99 @ Steam and Gamersgate is $59.99 too.

Needless to say, that’s a hot price from Newegg. For this game, Newegg gives you a DRM code to play it through the uPlay service. As for reviews for Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, Metacritic gives this game a metascore of 83/100 – really high. If you’re interested, pick it up now at this super price from Newegg.ca.

Some other good potential deals:

If you’re looking at other titles in the Newegg video game sale, I strongly suggest you price compare each individual item. While I have shown above that the Assassin’s Creed game is a very good deal, this isn’t necessarily true for every single gaming title there. Pop the select game in to Google.ca and see what prices you can find.

Looking for a way to pass the time?  If you’re a gamer, you’ll love this offer from Origin.com. Get a free PC/Mac download of Wing Commander 3: Heart of the Tiger.

Origin.com is a digital gaming service that is free to join and quick to install.  Origin downloads are super-fast, as their number one priority is making sure you get your games as rapidly as possible.

They have a whole plethora of games available for sale, including their On The House section which offers one title for free! These aren’t trials or demos; they are full versions of the actual game for free. This is a great way to get started with Origin.com and to make sure you like it.  Wing Commander 3: Heart of the Tiger (regularly $4.99) is a total blast from the past and will appeal to gamers who like a great story along with lots and lots of fight action.

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

Posted by on August 7, 2014 at 10:00 PM

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?

(PS4 & Xbox One) Pre-Order Batman: Arkham Knight For Just $57 + Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on August 1, 2014 at 9:00 PM

(PS4 & Xbox One) Pre Order Batman: Arkham Knight For Just $57 + Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

The dawn is coming and luckily, you can save a couple of bucks before it does. Batman: Arkham Knight is coming out in 2015 and for a limited time, you can pre-order it for just $56.99 at Amazon for either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. Its regular retail price is of $69.99, which put this deal at a 19% discount. Plus, since Amazon offers free shipping to most orders over $25, you are also sure to get your game shipped at no additional cost!

One of the trendiest quotes in the online community right now is: “Always be yourself! Unless you can be Batman, then always be Batman”. I couldn’t agree with it more, and what better way to be Batman than by playing this iconic character on either PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One?

Keep in mind that although Amazon is displaying an October 2014 release for this game, this is inaccurate. Rocksteady’s marketing game manager recently released a statement saying that the release date has been pushed back to 2015, though he hasn’t specified when exactly, due to the fact that they want to make sure that the game is absolutely perfect. In fact, his exact words were: “we just want to make this the best experience that we can, and that takes time”, as published on Gamespot. Definitely can’t argue with that, though I’m sure all of you Batman fans are eagerly awaiting its release!

Given that the last Batman to be released on PlayStation, Batman: Arkham City, was a major success, I have no doubts that the upcoming one will be just as awesome, especially since it will be tailored to the new video game consoles. I haven’t tried Xbox One yet but I have recently invested in a PlayStation 4 and I must say that it is all it’s cracked up to be. The graphics are absolutely phenomenal and I’m definitely looking forward to giving the new Batman a whirl, simply to see the level of details that will be injected into the game. In fact, here’s a review I found on Arkham City on Amazon:

This game is by far the best game I have ever played I definitely recommend this game if you are a batman fan!!!

Have you played any of the previous Batman games? What are your thoughts on them?

(PS4) Killzone: Shadow Fall Just $20 @ Amazon.ca (Hot!)

Posted by on July 28, 2014 at 7:45 PM

(PS4) Killzone: Shadow Fall Just $20 @ Amazon.ca (Hot!)

Hurry on over to Amazon because while supplies last (or whenever they decide to end the promotion), you can get Killzone: Shadowfall for just $19.94, which is 67% off the original price!

Considering that this is a PlayStation 4 game and one that was released relatively recently (November 15th 2014), this is an incredible deal. Price comparing this deal, the cheapest I have found it anywhere else is at Best Buy and Future Shop, where it’s on sale for $29.99.

Killzone: Shadow Fall is very similar to Call of Duty in that it is a first-person shooter game but it differs in the story line as it focuses on the missions of Lucas Kellan, a “Shadow Marshall” who finds himself in the middle of war. The game can also be played either as single-player or multi-player with others online.

Reviews for this game are also generally favourable, with GameSpot rating it 7 out of 10. In fact, here’s what GameSpot’s Kevin VanOrd had to say about it:

As much as I enjoyed my online time with Killzone: Shadow Fall–and as much as I will enjoy lots more time with it, unlocking perks that allow me to personalize my weapons–I missed Killzone 3′s jump pack, which brought a nifty nimbleness to the battlegrounds.

The only hitch is that you will need to shop for over $25 in order to have your order qualify for free shipping but that shouldn’t be too hard as you will need just $5 worth of merchandise. Amazon’s deals store is a great place to find good discounts. You could, for instance, get a number of DVDs for $6.99 or less, such as Rise of the Planet of the Apes for $6.99 (reg. $16.98), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1 for $6.88 (reg. $24.95), Rio for $4.88 (reg. $21.98) and the list goes on and on.

If you have yet to upgrade to a PlayStation 4, then now may be a good time to do so, especially since Walmart’s PlayStation 4 deal that I wrote about a couple of days ago is still on. For a limited time, when you get the PlayStation 4 console at Walmart, you will also receive a $50 gift card for free. I just upgraded to the fourth generation console last week and I must admit that it was totally worth it. Yes it’s expensive, but the graphics are crisp and the level of details makes even paying as high as $70 for a game (usual price) totally worth it.

Borderlands 2 & Borderlands: GOTY Bundle Pack (PC Game) Only $9.99 @ Newegg.ca

Posted by on July 27, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Borderlands 2 & Borderlands: GOTY Bundle Pack (PC Game) Only $9.99 @ Newegg.ca

I blogged a hot video game deal earlier, Fallout New Vegas from uPlay. And I’ve stumbled on another hot video game deal for the PC. This time, it’s the Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: Game of the Year Bundle Pack. The regular price of this video game bundle is $49.98 but you can save $39.99 at Newegg.ca now – the digital video game bundle is priced at only $9.99!

As I said above, this is a digital bundle. You won’t be getting anything shipped to your home, you will just get the game codes to download and install these games on your PC. As far as I can see, you’ll need to download Steam to enable you to play this.

Just for your information, this video game bundle at Newegg.ca doesn’t give you all the potential Borderlands DLC and content. There’s some additional DLC for Borderlands 2 which isn’t included… you might want to consider adding that at a later stage.

I’m a HUGE fan of the Borderlands PC game franchise! When the first game was released about five years ago, I was an avid fan and played it every evening and weekend for months and months. I enjoyed it immensely because I played it co-op with my partner and we used to have great fun completing all the missions together. The only real problem I had at the time was that I was pregnant… so an extended session of Borderlands usually resulted in me throwing up. But it was worth it!

Then funnily enough, when Borderlands 2 was released, I was pregnant with my second baby. There was still a bit of throwing up but not nearly as much as the first time round. I didn’t get quite as addicted to Borderlands 2 as much as I had been to the first edition. I don’t think the gameplay was quite as good fun…. But it was still a pretty entertaining game.

Price Comparison!

While it is a little hard to price compare this PC video game set because it’s a bundle, we’ll see what we can do to show you how good the price from Newegg actually is. On Steam itself, here is the price to buy the individual components:

  • Borderlands GOTY – $29.99
  • Borderlands 2 – $19.99

Therefore, the total to buy this set through Steam right now would be $49.98 – and you’re getting it for a measly $9.99 through Newegg. More price comparisons:

  • EBgames – $19.99 plus $29.99 = $49.98
  • Amazon.ca – $11.99 plus $14.43 = $26.42

Definitely the best price from Newegg!

Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition Only $5 @ uPlay! (PC Game)

Posted by on July 27, 2014 at 7:30 AM

Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition Only $5 @ uPlay! (PC Game)

If you’re a PC gamer and you are looking for a new game upon which to spend a little of your time, check out this deal for the Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition from uPlay.com. You can pick up the game for only $5 right now!

Just to show you what you are getting in the Fallout New Vegas Ultimate edition set:

Includes all the Fallout: New Vegas content including the full suite of highly acclaimed add-on content: Dead Money, Honest Hearts, Old World Blues and Lonesome Road.

My partner is a fan of the Fallout games, but he’s yet to play New Vegas. It appears there are many PC games on the shelf and not enough hours in the day to play them… especially with two kids in the house! I’ve played a little of Fallout 3, but never got round to completing the game. I personally really love the styling of the Fallout games… the retro images, the dry humour. Have you played this game? What do you think of it?

The reviews on Metacritic give Fallout New Vegas a metascore of  84 based on 39 critics. That’s a high score for Metacritic. User ratings are an average of 8.3/10… also really favourable.

Steam Required

For those of you who are gamers, you know what I mean when I say that uPlay give you a Steam CD Key for Fallout New Vegas when you purchase this. If you don’t know what that means, you’ll just have to download the Steam gaming client to your computer, then you will be able to play Fallout New Vegas from there.

Price Compare

EB Games are currently selling this game for $19.99, same price at BestBuy.ca. Amazon.ca are selling the PC game for only $9.99… but that still is twice the price of the digital game download from uPlay.com. Great price there!

Walmart Canada: $449 Playstation 4 + $50 Gift Card

Walmart Canada: $449 Playstation 4 + $50 Gift Card

Get your game on with the new PlayStation 4! Buy it at Walmart now for $449.99 and you will also receive a $50 gift card for free.

I finally got with the times and bought the PlayStation 4 the other day. The verdict is: yes, it is as awesome as it seems! The graphics are definitely much better on this console as opposed to the third one, but it’s not just that the image is nicer, it’s the level of detail that is incredibly remarkable. From the rain drops, to puddles on the ground, waves in the ocean, all the way to cans rolling around on a windy day… everything is rendered incredibly more realisticly.

Although now there is an Infamous bundle available for just $453.49 at Best Buy, when I got my console, it was at its regular price of $453.49. Luckily, I was able to price match it to The Source‘s price of $429.99. The bundle is definitely a great deal as well, but if you don’t see yourself playing inFamous Second Son, then Walmart’s deal is better, especially since it’s as though you will be getting the PS4 for $399. The way I see it, if you’re a regular Walmart shopper, then you’re bound to spend that gift card on other stuff anyway. If you would prefer to use the gift card to get a game, then you could wait for it to arrive in the mail with your console and then head over to your local Walmart to use it.

I got Watch Dogs with my console and it’s definitely a game I would recommend, especially for those of you who love Grand Theft Auto. It’s very similar to the highly addicting GTA game in that you drive around town and complete missions, but it differs in the story line as you play Aiden Pierce, who seeks to avenge the death of his niece.

To take full advantage of the gift card, you could also get Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn for $44.46. Check out all of the games available for PS4 at Walmart here.

Be sure to also grab a PlayStation Plus membership as you can get free games with it on a monthly basis. You can either get a three month membership for $17.83 or a 12-month one for $49.83.

Even better is that shipping is absolutely free as well!

Rocksmith 2014 Edition (PC Game) only $14.99 @ Humble Bundle

Rocksmith 2014 Edition (PC Game) only $14.99 @ Humble Bundle

Over on the Humblebundle online video gaming store, right now you can pick up the PC download of Rocksmith, the 2014 Edition. This is a very popular music game and the RRP on the UBI store is $60. Get it for only $14.99 at Humble Bundle!

Rather than those video games where you use the “toy” guitar controller with the coloured buttons, Rocksmith actually uses an actual guitar in its interface, enabling you to learn to play for real.

As far as I am aware, you will also need a Rocksmith Real Tone Cable in order to hook a regular electric guitar up to your system to play this game. If you want to pick up one of these cables, you could hunt for a cheapie on eBay, or there is the likes of this one on Amazon for around $30. It’s necessary to play the game.

I’m not seeing the 2014 edition of Rocksmith at many other online stores to price compare this, but you’re looking at $34+ for a brand new copy from eBay. I think the price on Humble Bundle is great.

According to Canadianonlinegamers.com, they tell us that there are over 50 songs available to play on Rocksmith 2014.  From that list of artists, some of my favourite bands of all time would be:

  • Muse
  • Foo Fighters
  • Queen
  • Radiohead

You can actually purchase DLC on top of the original song listings too, with the likes of “The Hives – Hate To Say I Told You So” coming in at an extra $2.99 each; there are over 200 more songs to download.

Since I purchased the first Humble Bundle many years ago (May 2010?), the Humble Bundle site really has come on leaps and bounds. It’s not just the little “pay what you want” game packs any more, they’re offering great prices on major gaming franchises, such as Rocksmith and more.
