Weekly Online Deals

Wednesday, April 8th, 2009

Taking a look around online, I found some good products on Amazon this week for each of the systems.

Katamari Damacy - $9.97 - I love Katamari Damacy and although there have been later games, the whole concept is still the same. I don’t really think there was too much evolution in the game, but the original was the groundbreaker.


Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 - $22.50 - Now this is a game that’s just fun. If you’re in need for a good party game, look no further.


Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots - $39.99 - I got this game back when they had the PS3 bundle and I played it all the way through. The game was riveting and although I’m not huge on action/adventure games MGS4 was captivating.


Assassin’s Creed - $23.99 - I know a sequel has come out, but if you haven’t gotten into the game definitely take a look. It didn’t hit the Platinum/Greatest hits status for nothing.


Kirby Super Star Ultra - $26.99 - I know that the price change isn’t much, but if I had to pick a definite 2-D Kirby game, this one is it. The Super Nintendo version was a classic and the little touches added to the DS version fills out the game. Some people may think that the game is a little short, but the mini-games keeps this one fresh.

Australian Xbox 360, PS3 bargains at JB Hi-Fi

Wednesday, June 4th, 2008

Xbox 360 bargains at JB Hi-Fi.

Ahh, the end of the financial year. Retailers discount heavily, and we try not to spend our tax returns in advance on shit we probably don’t need. JB Hi-Fi are consistantly one of the cheapest game retailers in Australia, but there’s some particularly good deals available for the coming weeks - with most new releases available for under $80, and the brilliant Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune for just $40. And I was impressed when Amazon took 33% off earlier in the week…

Lair hits the bargain bin

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008

Lair for $15.

Bill over at Aeropause recently found a copy of Lair, the critically panned PlayStation 3 exclusive from Factor 5, in a bargain bin for $15. If you read my Lair review, you’d know I liked the game a lot more than the average reviewer…and now that there’s a patch available that allows you to select analog flight controls, the main cause of those low review scores is eliminated - making this a steal for $15. Unfortunately Bill neglected to mention which store he found it in, so you’ll have to keep an eye out.
