Video game offers

If they can do vouchers once, they can do it again. There aren’t two big Nintendo games I want to buy in the next year. Hence, wait and see.

Why are they doing vouchers at all? This is a somewhat weird, roundabout discount.

Nintendo is weird.

Also, even though it’s a discount of $20, Nintendo gets your $50 now instead of your $60 later. That doesn’t count all the foolish people who will only save themselves $10 or fewer dollars and not maximize the discount. That doesn’t count all the people who might be tricked into getting Nintendo Online because this makes it free.

At least it’s easier to max out this discount than to mess with airline miles.

Maybe they’re trying to goose their subscription numbers? And trick people into staying subscribed?

I don’t know if they are any good, but these Age of Wonders games are free/dirt cheap.

The Messenger is 33% of on PS4/Steam/Switch and just got new, free DLC. If you liked NES Ninja Gaiden and want a dash of Metroidvania, check it out.

Get every game in the nonary/zero time/9 hours 9 whatever series all in one bundle on Steam for $8

I’ve heard from someone who’s opinion I trust on these things that that might be too much money for them, and supposedly you should get DR1/2/v3:

The current Humble Bundle for Jackbox is pretty good for anyone who has yet to pick up any of the party packs, or likes their trivia games. If you pay the highest tier and add Jackbox Party Pack 5 (at a heavy discounted) to your cart while checking, you can get all of the party packs for under $30.

Danganronpas are definitely worth that price. But I also think that Virtue’s Last Reward and 999 are woth $8 no matter how bad Zero Time Dilemma is (haven’t gotten around of playing that as people keep saying how bad it is).

Got an email about multiple items on my wish list being on sale

Must be the Steam Halloween sale.

Considering the steam store is down for me right now, while the rest of steam is perfectly functional, I think you might be right.

Oh, wow. That is actual news. Maybe I’ll get to play Metro… the new one.

Uh, this doesn’t look like EA is just going to sell games on Steam. It looks like EA has a new subscription service, and if you pay for it, you can access those games via Steam.

The question is do they also offer the titles for sale in the storefront as they make them steam friendly so that they can sell the Subscription through steam. Sadly I am N levels deep in Sims 4 content on Origin at this point so I’m locked into that platform, but if I can play future battlefield games on steam that could be a big deal.

Xbox Game Pass is only $1 for the first month. I’ve been using it to play The Outer Worlds on the PC.

The Messenger on Switch is $12 this weekend. If you liked NES Ninja Gaiden, you’ll like it.

It’s also free on Epic store!
