Video Game Deals Catch-All

I'm pretty much a huge cheerleader at this point, but Unity of Command is 50% off right now, $9.99. Looks like Steam has it at that price as well, but I believe if you buy straight from 2X2 you get a Steam code anyway.

Hmm. It's on my wish list on Steam, but I didn't get notified of the price drop. I suppose it's definitely worth buying at $10.

Got a Groupon e-mail for Assasin's Creed III, 21 bucks off and free shipping.

Deal is good until X-mas Eve.

For people new to groupon, I have a referral link, it gets me some groupon bucks. Click it, register, buy ACIII.

Thanks. Realized recently I was coming up to my re-up date, and now I'm not getting socked for $60.

So tempting, but man oh man, I'm actually grossed out at the number of unplayed games I have. This seems like it is about as approachable as a wargame gets for someone like me, who likes the idea of strategy games.. but sucks terribly at them.

Woo, thanks! Now I can finally become a productive member of the unwashed console masses. Or at least I can join the GWJ Forza 4 car club now.

ATTN: Calling all Sportsfriends!

The JS Joust alpha went out for $30 backers last night. In preparation for holiday family hijinx I went out to the local gamestop to see what the situation was with used move controllers. As it turned out they were offering buy-one-get-one-free for preowned move controllers and had plenty in stock. A power-up card membership saves another 10% on preowned stuff, so I ended up with 4 more move controllers for under $60.

I should also mention that I won't be using my Alpha copy of Johan Sebastian Joust. If anyone wants it for free, feel free to PM me.

EDIT: JSJ requires a mac and playstation move controllers.

To me you're saying two different things, really. Wargames are a subset of strategy games, but saying you suck at strategy games in general doesn't mean you'll suck at wargames or tbs or X game, etc. MIn my experience, most people think they suck at strategy games because they stink at real time strategy games. Turn based is a whole different beast.

Anyway, I don't know what you've played or what you're interested in, but UoC is definitely the best wargame to play for newcomers this side of Panzer General. I prefer UoC overall because it does have more depth while retaining the simplicity in UI. Buy now, or don't, but don't forget about Unity of Command as it should totally be tried ... or be a part of your pile.

Don't do it! (Yet!) Steam will have it at 50% off until January 5, but it might show up as a Flash Sale or Daily Deal—i.e. more than 50% off—before then. And then if it doesn't, just buy it on Jan. 5.

That's what I plan to do.

There's an awesome deal on 3DS stuff at Best Buy Canada right now. If you buy a system (regular or XL), you immediately get $20 off. If you buy online, you get an additional $30 off immediately and if you reserve in-stire, you get a $30 gift card that sadly, I discovered you cannot use against the purchase of the system. I don't use my 3DS much cause it's just too small for my massive hands so I bought an XL and between the deal, $25 in Reward Zone coupons I have and selling my old 3DS for $100 on Kijiji within 45 minutes, I got the upgrade for about $40 and get $30 to probably put towards Paper Mario Sticker Star another time. If you've been waiting on a 3DS and are a canuck, this is a great deal. The XL upgrade was 100% worth it! It's soooooo much more comfortable. I can't wait to dig into my 3DS backlog.

I exerted my willpower and resisted buying a 3DS XL for $160 today, PXA. You're not helping me feel good about that decision

My wife made me resist... er... well... something like that... I said I was thinking about going to KMart... and she said no.

If it makes you two feel any better, we gave our son a 3DS XL for his birthday today and the 3D effect absolutely makes my brain hurt...totally unplayable for old guys!

Best Buy has 20% iTunes cards today- available online.

You shouldn't cause it's way more awesome than the regular 3DS.

I just picked up Lego LOTR on PC at GMG for $10.50. It's Steamworks so I posted it in the steam sale thread as well. GMG has is on discount for 50% off and you use the coupon code GMG30-DPLIM-DN831 for an additional 30% off. The 50% off the game lasts through 12/24 but the coupon works through 1/4/13 on any game if this is not one you want. Just remember the coupon is one game and one use per account.

What do you think about Dark Souls, George Michael?

Thanks, Malor!

For anyone who has bought a game off of amazon recently and gotten that $5 promotional credit for January, allegedly dark souls for PC will be on sale for $18 in January and the credit brings it down to $13. Its only an extra $2 off the current amazon price and I have not found definitive proof that the credit will apply to the game yet, I just thought i'd mention it.

Amazon has L.A Noire (PC Edition) on sale - Standard Edition is 4.99$, Complete edition (with 5 DLC) is 7.49. Activates on Steam.

R.U.S.E is 4.99 on Gamestop PC (aka Impulse). Enable/disable me Goodjers!

It looks like this deal includes the promotional $5 itself too, so if you ended up using it on something your effective price for Dark Souls would be $9.99.
