Broke? I feel you. I’ve been living off microwavable burritos and ramen for the last few months, and I know how much it sucks when money is tight. Thankfully, frequent sales on videogames means that even the financially destitute like you and me can still afford to buy great games without resorting to selling our bodies on the street. Sorry perverts, but you’ll have to look elsewhere for your fix, because I’m going to Best Buy.
Highlights of Best Buy’s big “Summer Blow-out” include the very, very good Assassin’s Creed Revelations for a paltry 10 bucks. If you’re excited for AC3 (and you should be,) but still haven’t picked up Revelations, now would be a good time to catch up on the series’ convoluted but strangely engaging story. Other notable multiplatform releases included in the sale are Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Medal of Honor, Dragon Age II, and THQ’s Warhammer 40k: Space Marine, all of which have been marked down to $10 each.If you think you have too many good games and want to buy some bad ones, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City and Final Fantasy XIII-2 for both the PS3 and Xbox 360 have both been reduced to $15.
Bro’s with Xbox 360’s can pick up the end of the Gears of War trilogy for ten bucks as well, while Sony fanboys can save some cash by picking up SOCOM 4 and Infamous 2 for the same price each.
The selections are a little slimmer for owners of Nintendo systems: a few of the Just Dance games have been marked down, in case you want to get a gift for your niece or grandma (or secretly just want to play it yourself.) The underwhelming Metroid: Other M has been reduced to $5, and at that price it might be worth getting just to see how they reduced the galaxy’s most bad-ass bounty hunter into a crying, whining teenager with daddy issues. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Treasure’s amazing Sin and Punishment 2: Star Successor for Wii is also $5, and I everybody should definitely go out and get that game. It’s easily one of the best 3D rail SHMUP’s ever made, so if you liked Panzer Dragooon or Star Fox 64, do yourself a favor and buy Star Succesor.
Handheld gamers should keep an eye out for some pretty good deals on PSP and 3DS accessories: 4GB Memory Sticks for the PSP and PSP Go have been reduced to 2 dollars (!), and Best Buy seems to eager to clearance out their remaining selection of PSP carrying cases and screen protectors. 3DS owners can also find a pretty wide selection of cases and spare batteries on sale for their new handheld, and launch titles Pilotwings Resort and Steel Diver have both been marked down to $5 each. Neither of them is a great game, but they’re decent enough diversions to make them worth it at that price.
