(Wii U) Kirby & the Rainbow Curse Was $45 Now Only $35 With Coupon & Free Shipping @ Toys R Us Canada!

Anyone on Bargainmoose own a Wii U, the newest generation of Wii console? If you do, and you’re on the lookout for some games, there’s a sweet price on a video game at Toys R Us online if you combine it with one of their coupon codes. On the TRU site just now, the video game Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is priced at $44.99. Use the coupon code CINEPLEXHOLIDAY to score $10 off $40, bringing this item down to only $34.99.

As for free shipping, this is one of the items that currently qualify for the free shipping on $25 promotion, which is happening at Toys R Us Canada. Some people are a bit confused as to the way this shipping promo works. But in brief, Toys R Us gives you a shipping credit of up to $20. When I did this for a test order to Ontario, the shipping discount was $8.41, which is very sweet.

Game Reviews

I’ve never played this game myself so I cannot give you any personalised reviews or opinions about it. My old faithful friend Metacritic, gives this game a critic score of 75% and a user rating of 78%. The critics and the regular users are quite close in their opinions there. That’s a pretty high score for a video game on Metacritic. Click through and read all the personal experiences on there if you wish, before deciding to buy the game at Toys R Us.

Price Comparison

Doing a super-fast price comparison elsewhere shows me that the Toys R Us price for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is the best of the bunch, online in Canada. This game is $45 @ Amazon, EB Games, Best Buy, Costco, Future Shop, Videogamesplus, all the usual suspects.

FutureShop Canada: MLB 14: The Show PS4 Was $30 | Now $10 (FS @ $25) *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Posted by on February 20, 2015 at 1:03 PM

FutureShop Canada: MLB 14: The Show PS4 Was $30 | Now $10 (FS @ $25) *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Future Shop Canada has a really hot deal on MLB 14: The Show for the PS4. Originally $29.99, the game is now on sale for $9.99.

I suggest buying this one QUICKLY as it has already sold out on the Best Buy Canada website. You also have the option of reserving and picking up in store, which will save you shipping charges.

Now, this is one heck of a deal. The same game for the PS4 is currently $34.52 on Amazon.ca. Even if you have to pay for shipping (around $5, depending on where you live), you will still save a ton off money off Amazon Canada’s price right now. EB Games sells MLB 14: The Show for $39.99 new and $29.99 recycled. On Walmart Canada, expect to pay $39.96. Compared to the price at Walmart, Future Shop has the game for 75% less money. The original price for this game at Future Shop is even less than everyone else is selling the game for right now.

There are several very lengthy reviews written about this game, so check out the reviews on Amazon and Future Shop for more details. This game averages 4.5/5 stars with 11 reviews at Future Shop. One reviewer said:

Great game! It is filled with tons of different gameplay options and a staggering amount of customization options. Graphics are breathtaking and all players and mascots really do look like their real-life counterparts.

If you have not figured it out yet, this is a baseball game. Grab your bat and your helmet for this awesome sports game. Immortalize yourself in baseball legend with this game. Enjoy enhanced game play, faster response time, better player creation mod, and a pre-draft showcase feature. There is even a funky little feature called “Road to the Show” that is sure to provide plenty of entertainment.

Even if you play the game and find you do not like it, right now you could trade it in at places at EB games or sell it at Kijiji or Craigslist for more than your purchase price.

Quantities are LIMITED!

Diablo 3 Ultimate Edition PS4 & Xbox One – Was $70 | Now $39 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on February 20, 2015 at 12:43 PM

Diablo 3 Ultimate Edition PS4 & Xbox One   Was $70 | Now $39 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Gamers! Amazon Canada has dropped the price substantially on Diablo 3 Ultimate Edition for the PS4 and the Xbox One. The price for the game on these new consoles is cheaper than it is for the PS3 and the Xbox 360. Originally $69.99, Diablo 3 Ultimate Evil Edition is now on sale for $39 with free shipping.

You can select either console edition through the link above. I price compared this PS4 and Xbox edition with other retails to find it substantially more expensive elsewhere:

  • $64.99 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $64.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $69.99 @ EB Games (new)
  • $59.99 @ EB Games (recycled)

You would also have to pay shipping at EB games if you bought from there. I checked Walmart Canada as well, but they only have the game for older consoles. Amazon Canada’s price is the best you can get right now – and it is hot!

There are two different versions – one is English only and the other is French only. May sure you buy the right version or you might end up with a game in a language you do not speak. Evidently the French version for the PS4 does have an English language software package that can be installed so the game plays in English. i do not know if the English version has a language pack you could install for French. This is rather silly in my mind – if movies can be bilingual, why can’t a game?

Over, this game is a killer purchase at this price. It also has garnered high reviews from gamers. One reviewer on the Xbox One edition said:

Addicting as hell, I spent the last 12 hours playing non-stop, forgot to eat, drink and call my girlfriend to tell her I loved her, I’m now single. You want a game that will make you forget you have a life? Buy this.

I feel sorry for his girlfriend.

What blows my mind is that such a popular title is currently on sale for 40% off its original price – for the two newest consoles. How on earth did that ever happen? Even the recycled version at EB games is not that cheap.

You will receive free shipping on this game as it costs over $25. This is a win-win situation my lovely Moosers! Pick up this game before it sells out.

(PS4) Knack Just $10 | Was $40 @ PSN Valentine’s Day Flash Sale (+ Up To 80% Off Other Games)

Posted by on February 14, 2015 at 7:30 PM

(PS4) Knack Just $10 | Was $40 @ PSN Valentines Day Flash Sale (+ Up To 80% Off Other Games)

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, the PlayStation Network has discounted a bunch of games as part of their Flash Sale and until Monday, Knack for PS4 is on sale for just $10 (reg. $39.99).

This is perhaps the lowest price that we have ever seen for Knack. It’s a game that was released at the same time as the PlayStation 4 and features amazing graphics that perfectly showcase the latest console’s capabilities. Reviews are somewhat mixed on this game but if you’re looking for something new to play, then its current price reduction is definitely worth taking advantage. Keep in mind that it’s only a digital copy that is good for one account. If you prefer having a hard copy of the game, then you can pick it up on sale for $20.48 at Amazon right now instead. It’s usually priced at $39.99 and in fact, both Future Shop and Best Buy have it at that price. Here’s what someone had to say about it on Amazon:

The thing I love about the game is the ability of the co op experience. In knack you can have another person join your game at anytime as your sidekick and then run around and bash things together. I think this game is geared toward young kids however having played video games myself since Atari I have to say I love this game.

Not interested in Knack? No worries, there are numerous other games on sale, including some of the PS3 and others for the PS Vita. Here’s an overview of just some of the top games that you can pick up on sale:

  • PS3 Dead of Alive 5: reg. $19.99/ now $4
  • PS4 Divekick: reg. $9.99/ now $4
  • PS4 Dynasty Warriors 8 – Xtreme Legends: reg. $59.99/ now $18
  • PS3 Street Fighter X Tekken: reg. $29.99/ now $7.50
  • PSP Def Jam Fight For New York: reg. $9.99/ now $2
  • PS3 Digimon All-Star Rumble: reg. $39.99/ now $16
  • PS Vita Mortal Kombat – Unchained: reg. $9.99/ now $2.50

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris for the PS4 has also been slashed in price. It’s down to just $8 (reg. $19.99) or $11.60 (reg. $28.99) with the season pass pack. The latter also include a season pass pack, thus explaining the slightly higher price. This game was released in December 2014 and has garnered a general consensus of 7/10 within the online gaming community with positive reviews like this one that was posted on Metacritic:

The best of Lara, whether played on your own, or shared with others.

A couple of movie rentals have also been reduced in price. Belle as well as Men, Women and Children are both down to $4.99, but there are also other movies like Rudderless, Snowpiercer, Sugar and In a World… to name a few.

Best Buy Canada: Trade-in 2 Select Games for $70 GC (In-Store)

Posted by on February 10, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Best Buy Canada: Trade in 2 Select Games for $70 GC (In Store)

Best Buy Canada has started their trade-in event yet again. As a special promotion, they are offering a $70 gift card when you trade in two select PS4, XBox One, or WiiU Games.

Games must include their original boxes. They will not accept duplicate titles regardless of which console they are for. There is a limit of one trade in promo (of two games) per customer.

The following titles are eligible for trade-in:

Xbox One & PS4

  • Assassin’s Creed Unity
  • Destiny
  • Dragon Age Requisition
  • Fifa 15
  • NBA 2K15
  • Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor
  • COD Advanced Warfare
  • Diablo III Ultimate Evil Ed ENG
  • WWE 2K15
  • NHL 15
  • GTA V
  • The Crew Ltd Edition
  • Dying Daylight

Other

  • PS4 Little Big Planet 3 Ltd Edition
  • Xbox One Forza Horizon 2
  • Xbox One Halo Master Chief Collection
  • Xbox One Sunset Overdrive Day One ED
  • Wii U Mario Kart 8
  • Wii U Super Smash Bros

While they are all pretty new games, this is an opportunity to trade them in for a good return on your original investment. Two games equal a $70 gift card, so you are getting $35 trade-in value per game. You can then use that credit to buy new games, or even buy other Previously Played titles.

Each previously played title is backed by a 30-day money back policy and are guaranteed to work. Your previously loved games will be sold to other eager gamers that just cannot afford to buy the game at full retail price.

I think this is an excellent incentive from Best Buy Canada and a very good trade-in value. These days, you are lucky to get $20 back for fairly new games from the trade-in stores. While it would make most sense just to sell the titles privately, some people just do not have the time to dedicate to privately selling.

This offer is available in store only and is only available for a couple more days. Then the games will go back down to their regular trade-in value (whatever that might be). I am a bit disappointed that PS3 titles are not included in this offer. I would LOVE to trade in a few PS3 titles for some store credit, but i guess they have had their day.

You can spend the gift card on anything Best Buy has to offer!

(PS4) Tomb Raider Definitive Edition Only $20 @ Best Buy / Future Shop (+ Shipping or Free Collection)

Posted by on February 7, 2015 at 12:25 PM

(PS4) Tomb Raider Definitive Edition Only $20 @ Best Buy / Future Shop (+ Shipping or Free Collection)

Here’s a deal on the Playstation 4 version of Tomb Raider Definitive Edition, a popular video game of recent days. For a mere $19.99, you can buy the game from either sister site, Future Shop or Best Buy Canada.

Price Comparison

While the “was” price on Best Buy and Future Shop says $29.99, this video game is actually being sold at varied prices all over the Canadian interwebs. For example, it’s $31.96 @ Walmart, $29.99 @ London Drugs, Archambault and $28.90 @ Amazon. The BB/FS price is the best I can see anywhere online and I’ve only ever seen this low a price point in the Boxing Day sales.

Shipping / Collection

If you want to only pay $19.99, then you can actually order this item online and collect at your local store for free. However, if you’d prefer it to be shipped to you, then shipping would cost extra if you buy this game on its own. I’d highly recommend making your order up to the $25 mark to get totally free shipping to your home.

Reviews

If you want to read some reviews before buying the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition for your PS4, I spotted one such review here on Canada.com. The reviewers opening line was,

It’s hard to deny Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is a great looking game.

From the screenshots shown in that review, I’d agree. The images look superbly clear and crisp. The launch trailer is here if you’d like to view it too:

Over on Metacritic, this edition gets a Metascore of 85%, that’s very high. The user score is slightly lower though, coming in at 78%. But overall, this looks like a good game to try out if you are a fan of Lara Croft.

(PS4) Tomb Raider Definitive Edition Only $20 @ Best Buy / Future Shop (+ Shipping or Free Collection)

Lara Fun

The above image shows you the evolution of Lara Croft, from release to the present day. Lara finally wears pants again!! It’s funny to see all her characters over this time period. I dressed up as Lara Croft for Halloween about 10 years ago… and I’ll admit, I looked hawt! The style I went for was the Angelina Jolie style from the Tomb Raider movie, so it was more of a black outfit than her signature green t-shirt. In order to improve the appearance, I had a few pairs of socks stuffed down my bra… that worked well to finish off the outfit!

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!

Amazon.ca: Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist Was $20 | Now $14 & Free Shipping

Posted by on January 26, 2015 at 3:15 PM

Amazon.ca: Tom Clancys Splinter Cell Blacklist Was $20 | Now $14 & Free Shipping

A secondary seller (biddeal) on Amazon Canada has discounted Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist Day 1 Xbox 360 game from $19.99 down to $14.39 with free shipping.

There are two reasons why this deal is very good. First, you receive free shipping on the game without a minimum. Second, the price from Biddeal on Amazon Canada is better than anywhere else I can find this game. Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist costs $19.99 at EB Games plus shipping. While not in stock online at Walmart Canada, my closest stores are selling the Xbox 360 version for $21.

Amazon.ca: Tom Clancys Splinter Cell Blacklist Was $20 | Now $14 & Free Shipping

So, what is the game all about? Well, the good ol’ United States has forces in about two-thirds of the world’s countries and some of them are quite fed up with it. They start a blacklist of escalating attacks on US interests both at home and abroad. Sam Fisher must try to stop these attacks and find out who is behind it all before it is too late. If that sounds like a riot to you, then pick up the game. The game has many good reviews on Amazon including this one:

I’m a long time splinter cell fan and have always loved the series. This is one of the best games of 2013 IMO. A lot better and longer then conviction, but it has that conviction feel, which is a good thing. I haven’t tried the multi-player yet but I’ve heard good things. The side missions were also really nice

The game allows you to build your own playing style and rewards you for your choices instead of punishing you for not playing one specific way. Co-op play is back with plenty of maps and mission. There is also a spies versus mercenaries mode for asymmetrical game play. There is plenty to do and tons of options to customize your fun. There are really interesting features where Sam can abduct and carry enemies as well as kill multiple enemies at one.

Now, if you have a PS3, not all is lost. Amazon Canada is selling the PlayStation 3 version for $15.12 but shipping is only free on orders of $25 or more. Again, this is far cheaper than the competition as EB Games has the same game for $19.99 new and you would have to pay additional shipping on that as well. However, that free shipping minimum makes it not as good of a deal as the Xbox version from the secondary-seller on 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.

75% off Guild Wars 2 (PC) This Weekend: Now Only $10 to $15 (US) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 25, 2015 at 11:00 AM

75% off Guild Wars 2 (PC) This Weekend: Now Only $10 to $15 (US) (EXPIRED)

Here’s a little deal for the PC gamers! This weekend, you can buy Guild Wars 2 for a 75% discount on the original price! There are two editions on offer; the Digital Heroic Edition was $39.99 and it’s now only $10 and the Digital Deluxe Edition was $59.99 and it’s now only $15.

The above prices are in US dollars, so with the exchange rate, you’re paying slightly more in CA.

When Margarita last wrote a deal about Guild Wars 2, it was here, back in April 2014 when the game was on offer at 50% off, so 75% is obviously a sweeter deal. For the price you pay above, you’re getting the digital edition of the full game, and there are a few extras too, depending on which pack you choose. E.g. You get a Chalice of Glory in the Digital Deluxe Edition… obviously a few things to help you out when you are actually in and playing the MMO.

Here are some words from my partner – he used to be a big player of the first Guild Wars game, but he hasn’t got any experience of this second edition.

Geez, it’s been going a long time – it’s over two years since this game came out. There’s a new expansion pack coming (Heart of Thorns), it was actually announced yesterday. So this deal could allow you to get in and run through the initial game which should be bug free, by now! It’s very pretty… I want it.

I promptly said nope, he’s not getting it! There are so many unplayed games sitting on his Steam account, that he’s purchased when they were on special offer but hasn’t yet played. I’ve vetoed the purchase of Guild Wars 2!

I remember in the olden days, there was a World of Warcraft vs Guild Wars argument. World of Warcraft is by far the most popular nowadays, but Guild Wars still has a pretty big worldwide following.

Have you ever heard of the web TV series, The Guild? It’s a brilliant little show which came out a few years ago, when MMOs were getting extremely popular. Here’s the first episode:

There are now six seasons available to view, and it’s a great watch. If you’ve ever played any type of MMO, then the references in it will tickle your funny bone. But even if you’re not a player, you should still find the show pretty funny.

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.

Theme Hospital Full PC Game Download for Free @ Origin Canada

Origin Canada has a section on their website that is called “On the House”, this section consists of a free PC download game. The game available will change often, so get your hands on the freebie available as soon as you can. Today, the free game from Origin.com is the full PC download of Theme Hospital.

Do you remember the game Theme Hospital from when you were a kid? Now you can relive those memories for absolutely free. For a limited time, you can download the full PC version of the Theme Hospital Game from Origin Canada for free. This game would have normally cost you $4.99. As far as I can tell, there is no catch.

Theme Hospital is another installment of the Theme series. In this game, it is a matter of laugh or death. You can design, maintain and manage your own hi-tech hospital. Make the most of resources and create cures to earn cash. In the corridors of your hospital, you will notice the Grim Reaper walking around and waiting for you to make a mistake.

Laughter is the best medicine, and you will be laughing throughout the entirety of this game. While disease and ailments would not be the first thing you find funny, some of the diseases are hysterical. Your patients can get KingComplex which will have them dresses as Elvis. Another one of the known diseases in this Theme Hospital game is called Bloaty Head. That is the ailment pictured above. They can even get Hairyitis from being exposed to the moon light for too long.

Of course, you will have to build your way up in the world. Your game will start off with a small, empty building with a few doctors and a pharmacy. You will build up to get your other necessities and to grow. Move your way up in the health care industry while chuckling along the way. Personally, a hospital simulator would not be my first choice of a game, but I am tempted to give this one a try.

This is not a trial or demo, it is the full game. There is no time limit, you can keep the game for as long as you like. Origin Canada is offering free games to provide an excellent gaming experience to their customers. This is a great way to try new games or even genres of games that you wouldn’t normally play. This game is claimed to be the best hospital simulation around, so let us know what you think after trying it for free.

Nintendo Throwback Sale: Up To 50% Off Pushmo World, Yoshi’s Island, Super Mario 3D World & Others

Nintendo Throwback Sale: Up To 50% Off Pushmo World, Yoshis Island, Super Mario 3D World & Others

In honour of Throwback Thursday, Nintendo has discounted a couple of Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Wii U games and during the next couple of days, you can save up to 50% on a select number of these!

Below, you will find a list of the games that you can get on sale.

Nintendo 3DS:

  • Pushmo: reg. $7.49/ now $3.49
  • Yoshis New Island: reg. $44.99/ now $33.49

WII U:

  • Yoshis Island Super Mario Advance 3: reg. $7.99/ now $5.99
  • Pushmo World: reg. $10.99/ now $7.99
  • Super Mario Galaxy 2: reg. $21.99/ now $10.99
  • Super Mario 3D World: reg. $59.99/ now $44.99

I can never praise Super Mario 3D World enough. Featured in the image above, it’s a game that I played on countless wine-filled evenings with my hubby and we’ve had a blast. You can play by yourself but it’s much funner to play together with someone else as you can work together to figure out how to beat the levels and find the hidden items. Even better is that once you beat the game, it still won’t be over… play to find out what I mean! Nintendo Throwback Sale: Up To 50% Off Pushmo World, Yoshis Island, Super Mario 3D World & Others

Since I have a Wii U, I’ll most definitely be getting the other games as they’re so cheap. Well, anything under the usual full price of $59.99 is cheap to me, especially when the price hovers around $10.

If you scroll all the way down to the bottom section on Nintendo’s Throwback Sale page, then you will also see more price drops for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.

For the Nintendo 3DS, for instance, you could get Secret Mysteries in New York on sale for $3.48 (reg. $6.25) or for the Wii U, I found Color Zen Kids for $2.79 (reg. $3.99).

I was surprised that the cheapest game for the Nintendo 3DS is Darts Up 3D, which is on sale for just $0.99 (reg. $2.99) — less than $1 for a game is truly amazing!

Keep in mind that these are all available as digital downloads but that shouldn’t be too much of a problem since you will be saving money. CDs are becoming obsolete anyways, so it shouldn’t make too much of a difference. Nintendo Throwback Sale: Up To 50% Off Pushmo World, Yoshis Island, Super Mario 3D World & Others
