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

Posted by on July 25, 2014 at 8:30 PM

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

Posted by on July 19, 2014 at 2:00 PM

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.

Best Buy Canada: Select Video Games 2 for $30

Posted by on July 11, 2014 at 11:00 PM

Best Buy Canada: Select Video Games 2 for $30

Pick up a two video games at Best Buy for $30 instead of $19.99 each. You can stack this discount, like get four games for $60 and so forth.

Mix and match titles for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS & 2DS, and Nintendo Wii U.

You will have a hard time finding these games any cheaper anywhere else unless you are buying pre-owned. The Witcher 2 : Assassins Of Kings Enhanced Edition (XBOX 360), which retails anywhere from $14.99 used up to $29.99 for a new copy comes down to just $15 new when you purchase it with another game. Pick up Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition (XBOX 360) with the above game and you will get both for $30.

I own a PS3, so the games compatible with that console interest me the most. My hubby bought me Final Fantasy XIII (PlayStation 3) when it was certainly priced higher than this. I started playing it back when I was still in school and judiciously decided I should wait until after I was done before I got too addicted. Now I am done school and going to take the game up again. I love the graphics, and while learning the controls is a bit of a steep learning curve, I cannot wait to get back into it. I even love the animated sequences with just storyline. I thought they were a bit lengthy at first but the animation is just so pretty. Pick a copy up for just $15 when you buy another game with it.

When I use to invade arcades, I would play Mortal Kombat or some knock-off version of the game. I loved each and every second of it, even if it was just smashing a whole lot of buttons and then marveling at the combo I somehow produced. I would love to try out Mortal Kombat vs DC Value (Playstation 3) not only because of my Mortal Kombat memories, but also because of my geek status. I am pretty disappointed that the Martian Manhunter is not included as a character, but I guess he was just too powerful. Pick this game up with Final Fantasy and get both of them for $30.

Mix and match your own combos based on what games you like and which games you do not own yet.

Receive free shipping on all orders of $20 or more, which means all video game combos ship for free.

Future Shop Canada 4 Day Sale: $70 Off PS4 Watch Dogs Bundle – Now $453

Posted by on July 11, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Future Shop Canada 4 Day Sale: $70 Off PS4 Watch Dogs Bundle   Now $453

Still waiting to upgrade to a PlayStation 4? Then you might want to check out Future Shop’s four day sale, because during the next couple of days, the PlayStation 4 Watch Dogs bundle is down by $70 to just $453.49 (reg. $523.49).

On its own, the PS4 with one remote retails for $453.49 at Future Shop and $449.99 at Walmart. The Source has it on sale for $429.99 right now, but since you’re going to be needing a game to play anyway, then a bundle is the way to go. Costco has the Infamous Second Son bundle with two remotes for $564.99 and while it’s definitely worth it because it brings the price of the console down to just $363.22 ($65.89 regular price for each remote + $69.99 for the game), if you have no need for the second remote or don’t see yourself enjoying the included game, then the Watch Dogs bundle may be the way to go.

Since at Future Shop, Watch Dogs retails for $69.99, this means that with the bundle, you will actually be paying just $383.50 for the console on its own. Even better is that this is a highly acclaimed game with an average rating of eight out of ten. It basically revolves around the adventures of Aiden Pearce, a hacker who seeks to avenge the death of his niece. The cool part about the game is that you can choose to either perform the missions as a law-abiding citizen or in antagonism of the law. Here’s how one reviewer quickly summed up this game:

Two words: Awesome game!

Xbox fans will also be delighted to know that the Xbox One 500GB Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag bundle is also on sale for $503.49 (reg. $563.49). From the four day sale, there are also reductions on a couple of TVs, a washing machine, a laptop, speakers, cell phones etc. If you’re in need of headphones, then you might want to check out the Sony over-ear MDRZX310APB headphones as they’re now just $30.39 (reg. $50.39). They’re $49.99 everywhere else and can be used with a smartphone for hands-free use, have an integrated microphone, and the ear cups can even swivel! Another feature I particularly like is that the cord is a Y-type, which typically helps to reduce tangles.

Shipping is free or you can also reserve it in-stores to pick it up as soon as possible.

Staples Canada: Assassins Creed IV Black Flag For PS4 – Now $30

Posted by on July 9, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Staples Canada: Assassins Creed IV Black Flag For PS4   Now $30

Staples has a great deal on Assassins Creed IV – Black Flag: it’s now on sale for just $29.97.

When it comes to video games, I have a really bad habit of buying games and never playing them. In fact, I still have this version of Assassin’s Creed but for PS3 sitting unpackaged alongside BioShock2, Resident Evil 7 and Call of Duty: Black Ops on a shelf in my living room. Although Call of Duty has only been played once and will probably never get played again, but that’s a whole ‘nother story altogether.

Released in November 2013, Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag throws the player in the 18th century during the Golden Age of Piracy and centres around the adventure of Edward Kenway, a pirate who gets drawn into an old war.

As one of the top video games reviewers, GameSpot has actually rated this game 9 out of 10, with Shaun McInnis making the following persuading statement to play the game:

Black Flag doesn’t just present a beautiful world; it gives you a mountain of reasons to run off and go exploring.

Story-wise, the PS3 and PS4 versions of this game seem to be the same, but the real differences lie within the quality of the graphics, which you can clearly view in RajmanGaming’s Youtube video comparing the two. The colours are much more vivid on the PS4 and there are far more details (i.e. you can clearly see the waves in the ocean on the PS4, whereas it’s rather blurry on the PS3).

This game is actually still sold at its full price of $59.99 at EB Games and Best Buy. Future Shop has it on sale for $49.99 and Amazon has it at the lowest price, but still higher than the one at Staples, at $39.96.

Since shipping is only free on orders over $45, you can also check out the other two games for PlayStation 4 that you can also get for just $29.97: Need for Speed or Knack. Both are definitely great deals, although Amazon has Knack for $28.64.

If you’re on the hunt for furniture, then be sure to also use the Staples printable coupons available on our forum to save up to $100 off when you shop in-stores. There are three individual coupons that may only be used on furniture: one for $20 off orders over $100, another for $50 off orders over $250 and the last one for $100 off orders over $500.

Future Shop Canada: Madcatz Ghost Recon Wireless PS3 Gamepad Just $5.97

Posted by on July 1, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Future Shop Canada: Madcatz Ghost Recon Wireless PS3 Gamepad Just $5.97

Future Shop Canada has a great Canada Day Sale happening with some pretty incredible deals. One of the better deals I found was for a Playstation accessory. They have the Madcatz Ghost Recon wireless gamepad for PlayStation 3 on sale for just $5.97!

This model gets a 3.7 star rating out of 5 which is pretty good.  It comes with a rechargeable battery and features a quick-fire trigger, and backlit stick modules. The precision aim gives you sniper like accuracy when looking down the scope.  It is a great wireless gamepad for any gamer.

There were some great customer reviews for it and they are as recent as June 2014.

I’m a FPS player and this controller is perfect for sniping or ambushing 5/5 for me- Hugo Laperriere

This is the best thing for call of duty ghost players this well improve your gamer skills. sorry about spelling!!!! 5 stars.- NHLboss

Even though it got great reviews and I thought the price was excellent, it did not show the regular price it was sold for at Future Shop Canada. I wanted to do some price comparisons with this gamepad and I could only find the exact model at one place.  Over at Amazon Canada they had the same PS3 gamepad on sale for $39.99 and it was $64.99 at regular price.  Additionally, they only have one left in stock.

Other than that, they had some similar wireless gamepads at other stores that were good price comparisons. The only wireless gamepad that Walmart Canada had was priced at $59.93 and over at Staples Canada, the cheapest wireless gamepad was $48.21.  In fact, no store that I checked out even came close to the low Future Shop Canada price of $5.97.

When you spend $20 or more on almost everything, you will get free shipping at Future Shop.

Steam Summer Sale 80% Borderlands 2 GOTY edition and 75% off Tomb Raider

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

Steam Summer Sale 80% Borderlands 2 GOTY edition and 75% off Tomb Raider

Summer is finally here and with it, the annual Steam summer sale.  If you or someone you love is a PC gamer there is no other place to get some of the year’s best games at incredibly deep discounted prices.  There are daily specials and two of the best from today in my humble opinion are, 80% off Borderlands 2 GOTY edition, which includes all the dlc – that’s the full game – plus 10 extras for $9.99 and Tomb Raider at 75% off for an incredible $4.99.

Scroll down the page to find them about midway or take your time and check out the other great deals on all genres of games from indie and big time studios.

Out of all of the games why have I chosen to highlight Borderlands 2 and Tomb Raider?  I love both of these games and don’t think you can go wrong with either of them.

Borderlands 2 was a huge hit this past year building on the success of Borderlands, it is a fps with some rpg elements it combines cartoonish visual style with cartoonish characters a dash of immature humour along with fast paced combat to create an exhilarating experience.  Play single player or up to 4 player co-op, and the online multi player is a lot of fun as different play styles and characters combine to wreck the bad guys.  I recommended the Game of the Year edition, as it comes with two additional characters and eight playable campaigns.  This was my favourite game last year and I hate to admit it, but I spent wayyy more than $9.99 and felt I got my money’s worth.  Check out the reviews.

Tomb Raider is a visually stunning game it has some puzzle solving and lots of action; it is like being in an action adventure movie at times. Game play is fps style with some choice in how you want to take out the baddies. You can chose a more stealth based style and use the weapons and skills that suit that or go full-on head-on brawler or a mixture of both.  Personally the bow and arrow is the only way to go.  For $4.99 you will get way more enjoyment out of this gem then from probably any other way you can spend 5 bucks.  Check out the reviews at Meta Critic.

These two games are part of the steam summer sale daily deals so if you are even thinking about getting these games move fast on them they will be gone by 12pm eastern tomorrow.

Amazon Canada: VTech MobiGo Games As Low As $6

Posted by on June 23, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Amazon Canada: VTech MobiGo Games As Low As $6

Amazon Canada had a kick-butt deal on if you are looking for an inexpensive hand-held learning system for your child. Get the VTech MobiGo 2 Touch learning system for only $11.99 with a regular price of $39.99, but this sold out before I could tell you about it. Instead, I’m going to tell you about a number of MobiGo games that are on sale instead!

There are quite a few games on sale, but the best deal I see is on the Disney Cars 2 game, which is now only $5.99 with a regular price of $19.99. While this game is a bit older, I don’t think Cars ever goes out of fashion with kids. My son was just telling me that Planes 2 is coming out and I thought maybe he’d think it was too babyish, as he is eight, but he said he was excited. I’m sure he’d still play a Cars game and so would his younger brothers. My youngest watches the Cars movies a few times a week!

The Madagascar 3 game is also a great deal and the same goes for it as a movie that kids like to watch over and over. The game looks really fun with lots of educational components built right in. This one is $7.38 with a regular price of $19.99.

Add Toy Story 3 to that list of well-loved movies and you’ve got yourself a threesome of fun and inexpensive games for your child to play on their MobiGo. This one is selling for $9.02 with a regular price of $19.99.

Keep watching the actual MobiGo game device as sometimes items that have gone out of stock at the cheap price will come back.

Shipping is free on orders over $25, so you might want to see what else is on offer at Amazon to save yourself the shipping costs.

Origin.com Freebie: Try Titanfall For 48h For Free With Game Time

Posted by on June 21, 2014 at 9:30 PM

Origin.com Freebie: Try Titanfall For 48h For Free With Game Time

Origin has launched a brand new featured called Game Time. With it, you can try full-version PC games for 48h for absolutely free and right now, the game you can try is Titantfall!

Every time a new game is released, I wonder to myself: “is it worth it?” because paying $60-$70 for each new game isn’t the friendliest option on a tight budget but Origin’s Game Time is definitely a solution that I’m excited to try. Although you have until Sunday night to take advantage of this neat feature to try Titanfall for free, once you start playing, then you will have exactly 48 hours of game time to try the game and it’s not the demo version either! For 48 hours, you are given full access to the game’s every nook and cranny through its full version. Although you won’t necessarily get far in 48 hours as this includes the time spent off the game (48 hours in real time and not just game time), the great part about it is that once your game time has expired, then your progress will be saved in case you decide to purchase the game.

Although I’m a gamer at heart, I have never particularly understood first person shooter games. Going around and shooting things just isn’t my thing (I have tried my hand at Call of Duty multiple times and have failed miserably), but for those who it is, Titanfall is definitely a good game to try, especially since it has garnered a slew of positive reviews from the online community. GameSpot, for instance, has rated it an incredible 9 out of 10 with one member having the following to say about it:

But the game overall is a blast to play. It’s fast and moves like no other FPS out there, almost forcing you to climb vertically if you want to survive. Half the fun comes from the speed of the game. Much of it also comes from not only piloting a Titan, but from taking on Titans as a ground troop. It packs a certain amount of tension and makes for an excellent time. Taking down a Titan while on foot is exhilarating and there’s little like it in the FPS market.

This game has even won a whopping number of 60 awards at its E3 unveilment in 2013! It’s also currently on sale for 40% off at just $47.99 (reg. $79.99).

What do you think of Origin’s Game Time? Are you excited to try it out with Titanfall?

Best Buy Canada: Wolfenstein Only $45 (Save $25)

Posted by on June 20, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Best Buy Canada: Wolfenstein Only $45 (Save $25)

I’ve said before I’m not a huge gamer, especially for a game like Wolfenstein (I’m more into trivia or cards), but this is definitely a good deal I wanted to tell you about. Get the game Wolfenstein: The New Order, available on all platforms for only $44.99 with a regular price of $69.99.

To me, this is your typical shoot-em-up game, where the hero has to attack the Nazis in a re-imagined universe, where the Nazis have won WWII and have taken over the world. This is definitely a very imaginative theme. The game will send you across Europe as the hero taking down the Nazis. There are lots of guns, robots, super soldiers and high-definition graphics.

This game has generally favourable reviews on the Metacritic site with a high metascore and user score. One reviewer said this:

One of the BEST FPS games of the last years. Graphics, sound, controls are great, but what is really superb is the story.

Although war games would not typically hold my interest, I do think the story is pretty smart. It allows you to consider what would have happened had WWII been won by the Nazis and how our world would be changed today.

Just to give you a little price comparison, EB Games sells this for $69.99 and Amazon sells it for $67.49.

You’ll get free shipping on this game, as it is over the $20 you need to spend to get free shipping from Best Buy.

The game is available on the following platforms for this sale:

  • PS4
  • Xbox One
  • PC
  • PS3
  • Xbox 360

Walmart Canada: $10 Off Far Cry 4 Or Assassin’s Creed Unity Pre-Order

Posted by on June 15, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Walmart Canada: $10 Off Far Cry 4 Or Assassins Creed Unity Pre Order

As a general rule, newly released games are automatically priced at $59.99. So if you’re a frequent gamer or know someone who is, then the purchase of each new game can definitely amount to a pretty hefty total at the end of the year. So although both Far Cry 4 and Assassin’s Creed Unity won’t be released until later in the year, you can nevertheless pre-order them right now to save $10 off and pay just $49.96 for each.

Far Cry 4

Coming out on November 18th 2014, Far Cry 4 is essentially a first-person shooter game that can be played either as a single player or in a multiplayer mode. The game revolves around the actions of Ajay Ghale, who becomes involved in a civil war within a remote region of the Himalayas.

What is interesting to note about this latest instalment of the popular franchise is that PlayStation Plus members will be given 10 invites that can then be dolled out to friends who also have the game in order to complete the missions cooperatively. This is definitely an interesting feature as playing with complete strangers isn’t always the funnest experience in the vast online realm of trolls.

Assassin’s Creed

Following on the heels of six other instalments, Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Unity is set to be released on October 28th 2014. Despite having received much criticism as of late for their claim that female characters take too much work, it’s nevertheless a much anticipated game, especially since the previous ones were major hits. The story basically follows the life of Arno Dorian, a native Frenchman who becomes an assassin.

This latest instalment also introduces a brand new weapon: The Phantom Blade, which is basically a silent crossbow that can be used from a distance.

Shipping is also absolutely free, even if you get just one game!

Which game out of these two are you most excited about trying out? Share with us in the comments section!

(Xbox 360) Tomb Raider Game of the Year for $20 & Free $5 Gift Card & Free Shipping @ Newegg.ca!

Posted by on June 14, 2014 at 9:30 AM

(Xbox 360) Tomb Raider Game of the Year for $20 & Free $5 Gift Card & Free Shipping @ Newegg.ca!

On the fairly newish video game section on Newegg Canada, you can pick up a copy of Tomb Raider Game of the Year for the Xbox 360 for only $19.99, as well as free Canadian shipping to your home. Here are all the details:

As well as the great price for the game above, Newegg.ca will also send you a free $5 Newegg gift card with your purchase. From what I can garner from their website, you can then use this $5 gift card towards any future Newegg purchase. The freebie acts just like a regular gift card, there don’t appear to be any restrictions or minimum purchase amounts. So buy this game now… play it for a bit… then use your $5 towards the next game. (Xbox 360) Tomb Raider Game of the Year for $20 & Free $5 Gift Card & Free Shipping @ Newegg.ca!

Let’s price compare! Square Enix’s Tomb Raider, the Game of the Year edition for the Xbox 360 is currently showing up for $30 @ Walmart (in-store), $30 @ EB Games (in-store), $30 @ Gameshack, $30 @ Best Buy, $30 @ Future Shop, $30 from Shop.ca (but OOS), $30 @ Archambault. It seems to be around that price level at most stores.

I did also find it at $20 from Amazon.ca, but shipping is an extra $1.99. Of course, we all know that you get free shipping on Amazon orders of $25 or more, so you’d have to spend a bit more to get the game itself for the same price. Plus, there’s the fact that you don’t get the extra free gift card too.

What about the game itself, I hear you ask. Is it any good? Well, reviewers on Amazon.com had people saying that it was one of the best Lara Croft games they’d ever played. This game got a score of 9.1/10 from IGN – sweet.

It’s been a while since I’ve played any games from this big-bosomed heroine! I think that the last time I played with her was probably on the PC, maybe 15 years ago. I know that the Tomb Raider games were always more popular on consoles, I don’t think the controls translated well to the PC. When I was running around getting used to the ease of movement with games like Quake and Half Life, it always felt a bit hobbled to have limited console-like movements with Lara Croft.

Ever played this edition of Tomb Raider? Any good?

Sid Meier’s Civilization V: The Complete Edition only $12.49 @ Mac Game Store

Sid Meiers Civilization V: The Complete Edition only $12.49 @ Mac Game Store

Savvy gamers can currently pick up a copy of the popular strategy game Civilization V: The Complete Edition, for a mere $12.49 from the Mac Game Store!

As you can probably tell from the name of the store, this deal is for people using Macs, not for the PC. You must have Steam to play, as you’re buying a Steam key and you’ll be accessing the game from the Steam service. Here’s what you are getting:

The Complete Edition includes the original 2010 Game of the Year award-winning strategy game Sid Meier’s Civilization V, plus the two critically-acclaimed expansion packs (Gods & Kings, and Brave New World) and all of the released add-on content in one complete package.

To digitally buy this game elsewhere right now, it’s $50 to purchase on Steam itself, $50 @ Gamersgate, $50 @ Greenman Gaming, $50 @ Gamefly… it seems to be around that price everywhere else.

Sid Meier’s Civilization V gets a score of 8.5 on Metacritic, which is very high. There are some reviews on there if you are interested.

Sadly, I cannot give you guys any personal experiences about this game because I’m not a lover of strategy games and I haven’t played Civilization at all. Our author Avigayil has though, it’s one of her favourites and she’s playing Civilization 5 at the moment. In her recent deal post here, Avigayil wrote a bit more about the various expansion packs and DLC, so you can see her words, if you want a first-hand Bargainmoosing opinion about this game. At that time, the whole game set was $16.50 on Steam and was for a very short time only. This deal from the Mac Game Store is even better for those of you with Apple Macs.

Is anyone here a lover of the Civilization game series?
