What a Deal!

Recommended Posts

I bought 8BitBoy and Crimsonland from the Steam summer sale. 8BitBoy felt all right as a retro platformer, it was given high props on the Finnish game magazine Pelit and seems definitely worth the sale price and more. Crimsonland is a classic WASD+mouse arena shooter, I haven't tried the remastered new version yet, but the old one was really good - endless waves of different enemies, picking perks to improve your guy and trying to survive as long as you could. Really good stuff. Looking forward to playing the new version.

Man, it's really been a while since the last post in this thread.

 

I wonder if some of the hardcore sentai fans here (ping DarkeSword, Arrow) know about Chroma Squad? It's a tactical squad management game about "five stunt actors who decide to quit their jobs and start their own Power Rangers-inspired TV show". It's less than 10 bucks on Indie Gamestand (steam key included) and I'm getting it, more for the genre (the reviews are positive too), but the premise sounds fun even from outside of the fandom.

We both know about it, and I own it (in fact, I Kickstarted it), but just like the other 221 games in my Steam collection I haven't yet touched, this sits in my backlog, unloved.

I just took advantage of a monster deal that Best Buy did.  I got a Sony Bravia 55" 4K TV AND a PS4 for $1,100.  I wasn't going to pass this up for black friday.  Sorry to say that the sale is now over.

They did a very similar deal with best buy last generation.  Kevin Butler even announced it.

 

I'm very happy with my purchase.  The only downside was that they took off the glossy surface for this particular PS4 and replaced it with the tetured surface like the rest of the device.

if you want an xbox one, there's a sale on thanksgiving starting at 6pm that dell's doing where you get an xbone 500gb, the Gears of War collection, an extra controller, and Fallout 4, for 300$. the gow xbox bundle normally costs 350, so this is 50$ off plus about 100$ worth of stuff. i'll be buying that. i'm playing fo4 on pc already, so i don't really need that for the box, but i can sell it for cash for close to what it's worth in-stores. it'd be worth it even without that game, honestly.

 

also, it's online only, so no stores required.

 

gonna need to find copies of the master chief collection and halo 5 now.

In that case, Amazon keeps throwing this deal my way because I did a lot of research on TV's recently.  You can get a 49" 4K Sony Tv for $900.  If you have been waiting to get into 4K for a price drop (like anyone should) now is a good time.
